Tex., Dec. 30. —(UP) — The Louisiana State football team was expected to arrive here today by plane after completing their practice sessions for the Cotton Bowl game against Arkansas. Fair Enough By Weatbrook Pegler Copyright, 1946 By King Features Syndicate. New York. Dec. 29 — Max Kase, the sport editor of the New York Journal-American, has opened a litle conies*, in which the clientele arc invited to argue the proposition that we have a journalistic duty to publish the point-spread odds established by the professional gamblers, on various games, in season. The question came into controversy early in the case of the attempt to fix a big professional football game at the polo grounds. Lew Burton, of the sport side, said these odds were news, as Important as other news. I say that, by publishing them, we aid and about gamblers in an illegal opera- uon. These quotations are published not only in New York but in other cities and the habit of presenting them just grew, along with thd growth of the traffic. The morality of gambling, by itself, is not an issue here. That question has been decided by the people through their legislature under the Republican, not Democratic, form of government which is guaranteed to our slates by our national constitution. Through this means, not only New York, but, I rashly venture to say, all other l^Wl ACtlllO t!£, tl il liJ I, .kl.lbkt),l>Jktd.

BURTON HEATH Washington, Dec. 30 (NEA)— A new income tax form, made possible in part by a new law, will be used this year by those taxpayers who cannot—or choose not to—use the Witholding statement as an income tax return. These can be filed at any "time after Jan. 1 that you choose. So, tor that matter, can the Witholding Statement returns, except that most employes will not get them from their employers until well along in January. The Bureau of Internal Revenue is urging all who have refunds corn- in", in particular, to file as early as possible, with the promise that refunds—subject to later audit of the returns—will be mailed as soon as early personal returns are received. The new Form 1040 standard return is simpler, on the whole, than it has ever has been since the In come Tax got itself all wound up in red tape. One feature has been added to the 1945 return: This year interest and dividends must be reported o- separatety, as income, instead of lumped together. But the real headache of any income tax return, the computation of the tax itself, has been greatly simplified. Up to now, ever since the sur-tax was introduced it has been necessary to compute one tax base for normal tax and another for surtax, and figure each tax on its own base before adding them to get a total. Now the personal exemption of $500 per person has been extended to both types of tax, so that it is possible to compute a single taxable income, and either take from the table or figure a single tax on that income. This makes it easier than last year even to use the tax table, in the caso of married couples ceasier to compute your tax if you where each has income—and Infinitely easier to compute your lax if you do not use the table. When you get your tax all figured, there is a new 5 percent roduc- .lin that can be subtracted from it. It is estimated that these changes will relieve some 12,000,000 per- sons from paying any lax this year. But the Bureau wanls it understood that these people still must file a return, so long as their incomes were as much as $500 each. The reason for this is thai if would be virtually impossible to state a formula, understandable to the ordinary person, by which filing requirements for those on the borderline could be defined accurately. Since last year the regulations on deductions and exclusions have been changed in two ways that will help many taxpayers: 1. Income from life insurance, received because of the death of the insured, now is completely tax exempt whether you lake il in a lump sum or in installments. Previously, installments had to be treated as annuities, and lax paid on what was regarded as the "interest" ele- Ncw York way to kee Monday, December 30, 1946 Doc. 30 — M')— Olio kids iroin becoming juvcnilo (a iiiqiicnls, suggests George Cordnin, Is to lake a cab to them — i-lfiolf club, that is the iiution's [J5|f clubs are shy some cornn fas distinguished from play- ini' golf whon you lose your icrnpcr over a couple of bad shots and pay plentv tor that doubtful privilege) ''Every club now has provided facilities snich as caddy house, 3,000,000 Ciicilies and it s a certain-. for goncrou! joes, plus ii|> ! > • • • let George, ill about some of ihc advantages. 1 Letting Gsprgs Do It "Caddyinjlis heallhfr.i, plcnsimt and profltaile work," says Cor- ment.

Such is the winnowed wisdom of the people who, in many other respects, recognizing the danger to themselves of indulgence in pleasant follies, have authorized the cops to restrain them. Inasmuch as illegal activity is immoral, tending to defy and discredit government, the moral issue is thus disposed of. For a more garish illustration, let us assume, unthinkably. I hope, that there are in our midst some secret houses of prostitution, and that the proprietors, with some justice, believe some members of our good society would take it as a public service on our part to keep the public apprised of certain commercial data. Our own policv in the press has been severelv otherwise. The vitality of this "ancient trade might tempt a reckless debater to put us down as censorious, but here again we have only to look to the law for guidance and ease of conscience. This and gambling are equally has spared us problems of decision, illicit and the legislative process has spared us problems of decision, if only we would avail ourselves o£ the convenience instead of looking for trouble. It is a comfort not to have to decide, for ourselves, not to quote fluctuations in the price of having an enemy knocked off. TAX COMPUTATION— FOR PERSONS NOT USING TAX TABLE ON PACE 1 1.

Thomas, Cashier Jealous Suitor DEAR MISS DIX: I am now going steady with a really wonderful fellow whom I love and would like to marry' 1 . My problem is this: I live in a small town where I know practically everyone, and my boy friend objecls to my even saying We just know, somehow, without I hello to them when we meet. When having to phone our lawyers. So the issue is plain and the correct decision obvious. These arguments invariably elicit the fact that we may, and inosl of us do, prinl Ihe track odds on horse races. The difference here, and our excuse, is that these carousels are licensed by law and pay into the public treasury a percentage of the total amount wagered. It was not by our decision that an inconsistency lies here whereby one kind of gambling is made lawful and, one might say, almost a public duty, like the duty to buy bonds and pay taxes, while others are forbidden. II is our right, and some of us may think il our editorial duty, to in- leigh against the distinction, whether to advocate tolal abolition of all verbotens of all gambling, to forbid belling at the tracks or to establish municipal blackjack and crap tables for the convenience of those who can't afford the cost in money and idleness of days al Ihe racing plants. Here, lest I be charged with fault, let me say that I quite understand that the mutuel prices are published not for the in- formalion of those who do attend the turfing but for the guidance of Ihose who, for many reasons, can't.

To whom then are we accom- ilice? Our partners in this business, as ye know, are low characters of the underworld who, by the enormous persuasion of money riming into Hindreds of millions, would be able o corrupt our government through bribery. Would that be nice? A few years before the war, I nade a study of lotteries, in the course of which I gathered an jnormous mess of unimportant ;n- 'ormation on the British football pools. These roughly paralleled our lew crax.e, although in detail there were differences. They were legal and the only revenue they paid to he British government, which cer- .ainly needed money, came in the 'orrn of increased postal receipts and personal income taxes on the operators. They made their own odds, paid as much as they liked and came to be regarded almost as a public utility, because the English, underneath it all have a streak we are in a restaurant and anyone joins us, he says it is my duty to ask them to leave, inasmuch as they are my friends. •! say it 'is for him to ask them to leave if he objects to their presence.

He is yellow to the marrosv of his bones. It is ingrowing and he will never get over it. So unless you are hunting for trouble, break with him, for it you marry him. you will be desperately unhappy. You will be woi-sc than a slave. He won't even let you go to the corner grocery wilhoul watching you r.nd suspicioning that you are having an affair with soma man. You will spend your life defending yourself against his unjust accusations and apologizing for things you never thought of doing. ' Also, and this is worth considering, no man who is so lacking. in friendliness and even ordinary good manners as to insult everybody who speaks to you, and especially ask them, to leave the table when they have just dropped by for a little odds do not gossip, will ever get anywhere in cr this question lo a dietician. Undoubtedly happiness stimulates the ap'pctile. We always associate good limes wilh good food, and it is on- .y when we are sick and miserable that we don'l want to eat.

Aggies Again Loom as Cage Powerhouse By JOE REICHLER New York, Dec. 30 --(/P)— Oi Iwo weeks ago, tonight's Sugcu Bowl basketball clash at New Orleans between Kentucky, nationa invitation champion, and Okla homa A. & M., N.C.A.A. title-hold er, shaped up as just another tune up for Ihe slar-slucldcd Wildcats from Lexington, but today il looms .as the most important collegiate case till of Ihe year. A forlnight ago, the Aggies wer beaten by a mediocre Long Islsin University five after huvin_ squeaked past a trio of little known quinels by the barest of margins. Al Ihe same time, Kenlucky nad registered its sevonih consecutive victory wilh its usual case and had increased ils two-season span to 22 straight.

Inside of Iwo weeks, iba welded a group of inexperienced freshmen and several of last year's substitutes into well-knit smooth wonting oulfil hat promises lo match last year's array before Ihc seuson':; end. During lhal ume the Aggies have registered six straight triumphs and added three major tournamenl championships to bring their record up to nine wins and one defeat. The Wildcats continue to knock all opposition wilh apparent ease. The Kaintucks made il 20 in a row Saturday nighl by walloping Wabash 96-24.

DEAR DOROTHY DIX: A woman and a man I know, who decided lhal Ihey would nol be bound by Ihe ordinary convenli-ens life, lived together very happily and contenl- edly for a number of years. Finally they gol married and now Ihey are at Ihe poinl of divorce because each is so jealous of Ihe other that they are perfectly miserable. He thinks thai she is having affairs wilh every man she speaks to, and she is certain that he is unfaithful to her whenever he looks at another woman. What's the answer to this mixup? ANSWER: In the course of time ,and nature every possible variation has been rung on the relationship between men and women and monogamy has been found to be the best solution of Ihe problem. The man and woman proclaiming that they are taking each other in hon oi'ublc wedlock and selling up a permanent home instead of making a love nest. So when people break this rule Ihey are always under suspicion. And that is where your man and woman come inlo the piclurc. Nol having played Ihe game fairly themselves, Ihey believe Ihe olhei capable of doing. The man whose wife has been his mistress rarely, if ever, Irusls her. The woman who marries a philanderer gels green eyed if he so much as looks in Ihe direction of a pretty girl. DEAR DOROTHY DIX: Accord ing to tradition love lakes away i girl's appetite, but we find that be ing in love lias given us a ncrvoub appetite that keeps us eating al thu time. As we are already over weight, we are wondering if thi.s in .salible hunger is a sign of true love.

Subscribers arc finding oul lhal six-and eight-page papers can carry all the news and features they normally read—bul il is a i puzzling situation for most of Ihc public. | The trouble is with production 'rather than price. Newsprint has doubled in price in the lasl 10 ycais, bill Ihe newspaper companies do nol reckon thai fad as their greatest problem. The real problem is to get newsprint in quantities that don't exist, regardless of price. The larger papers will always have enough newsprint to publish some kind of paper, but nol always enough lo pul out their standard number of pages. You can understand why from the situalion that hangs over a small paper like this pjnei TJio Star's basic contr,acl with the mill'is 40 tons a year. Bul like every newspaper we run over contract commitmcnls more or less. In 1945. we used SO 1-2 Ions of newsprint, and for the year ending loday 55 tons— both all-lime "highs." The mills are more or less lenicnl wilh small papers whose demands fluctuate between four-six-, and eight-page rolls. Their lotal tonnage is not great. But Ihe same Inrcal does hang over all papers, large or small. We were ^stopped in 1946 with total purchas- •cs of 58 tons. The solution >s greater production, of course.

"I talked to 500 able men in the last three weeks," Hawkes told reporter. "Without being asked, all volunlecred the same 'statement: 'I hope to God you won't reduce taxes until you balance the budget.'" In the same vein,. Rep. Hoffman (R-Mich) told newsmen: "First, we've got to make bolh ends meet, and pay something on the debt if we can." And Rep. Judd (R-Minn) chimed in with the view tha't "it would be a mistake, financially and psychologically, to make tax-culling Ihc firsl.order of business." "I think most of the country feels that way," Judd said, adding: "Make tax legislation the third order of business. Firsl, reduce federal cxpendilures; second, reduce the debl — don't jusl talk about it—make an actual payment: and third, take up lax legislalion."

The Mail, discussing whal il intervenes with new laws the 'Ike'Will Run for President If People Willing sailed Ihe latest phase, reported— and slill nol completely denied of ically — British and American agreement for standardizalion o: armaments, said "draft plans for oint training" of RAF and U. S. (presumably Army) airforce personnel were submitted yesterday to Gen. Carl'A. Spaalz, U. S. Army airforce head, "for signature." The Mail's dispatch, written by James Brough, its correspondent in Washington, said the schooling would be standardized, that joint experiments would be carried out in such fields as supersonic flight and that British fliers would be taught the technique, at least, of atomic bombing. "The first step in this long term plan is the exchange of British and American fliers, already agreed to in principle.by the-United ; States, 1 * ''said -Brough.-""Ah- An-' glo-American airforce x x x is a logical conclusion." There was no immediate official comment either here or in Washington, but the Mail's dispatch was published just after an official denial was issued concerning a report published in Ihe French press to the effect thai the United States and Great Britain would sign a pact next March for mutual assistance-in defense. A foreign office spokesman, commenting on the French press report, said there had been no developments along this line since Nov. 18, whon Prime Minister Attlee denied in the House of Commons ihe existence of any reported military agreement between the U. S. and Britain, government must turn back to the private owners the coal mines it now holds. And after that date, a scries of emergency taxes will drop to old rates. Among these are excise levies oh liquor, furs, jewelry and olhcr luxuries. The liquor tax will drop from $9 to $0 the proof gallon. (A drawback tax of $6 a proof gallon, affecting industrial uses of distilled spirits, drops back to $3.75.) By acting before 1946 closed, Mr. Truman knocked one year off the government's guaranteed price support program for farm products. It will go on for two years. But had Mr. Truman waited until 1947 to act, the program, which might cost a billion and a hah" dollars in a big crop year, would have extended through 1949. The law provides that it is to go on for two years beginning wilh the first day of January immediately after. Olhers say they are effec- lilies. Mr. Truman's action does not affect many other powers. There are more than 500 emergency laws. Some sfcy they^ are to end with the "end of the war'! or within some specified 'time thereafter. Others sa ythey are effective for the duration of the "emergency." Thus, the "period of hostilities" as used by Mr. Truman is largely a technical matter turning on language Congress used in each statute. He made clear that he was not proclaiming the .war ended,; or the officially-declared emergency over. Consequently, the laws based on.

First work out of the aspirin bot- lle. Then sample a few glasses of cold water. Mix in some fizz pills, sodium bicarb — all the old standbys you thought you would never have to use again. If you're still unhappy, call your doctor, wish him well and say "Help!" three times. If ho can't answer, recommend something :"or him. He may be in the same shape.
