riOfTHWHT ARKANSAS TIMIS, »oy«HtvllU, Affc«m«. If, tftt GUumn Bj HAL BOVLR By UAL BOYLE Tampa, Fla.-OT-Are you finding it harder to meet American women on their own level? I am. And with aie the reason it very simple. I no longer can look them in the face. I have to look up to them. They are getting that tall. What are they feeding girls these days anyway--"grow-fast?" Everywhere yOu travel about this nation you notice that- the younger generation is shooting up like corn stalks under a hof July fun. Is a new race of American Amazons in ths making? It could be, pardner, because the All-America lass today isn't only as pretty and slender as a willow tree. She can reach right up and chin herself on its highest branch. That is as true in Florida as it is' in California. It is gospel fact in the four cities which brag most often they have "the prettiest girls in the world"--Atlanta, Dallas, Kansas City and New York. Everywhere the damsels tower taller every year. Majbe that's just a -eflcction of the American credo that we have to have everything bigger and better. But foreign visitors, notably Frenchmen, for some time have been appalled at the altitude our ladies are attaining. And certain' disadvantoges are be-.- iming apparent to the native male, too. For in the battle o* sexes in the United States men have been steadily losing ground. They have been told women are made of finer stuff, ha\tf more culture, can endure more suffering, live longer, and control more moiiey than they dp. Only in the field o£ height have they been able to say to women, "Grow up, kid." But that is exactly what the gals are now doing, and they threaten to reduce man to his final inferiority. He is on the way to becoming a pale-satellite of womanhood, circling around the flbwer of his choice like a tame bee. At one of the Southland's greatest fetes, I was dressed in pirate regalia, tr'idging along te'O-ig pretty villainous. But as I passed a high-stepping high school drum majorette, she looked over and said: "Hi, Stumpy: 1 . Well, that melted all the piracy in me. Why, I am fivc-feet-nin,e inches tall and I can remember when girls her age used to call me things, like "Tarzan." . Anyway, one girj did once, and what if she was near-sighted? From Tarzan to Stumpy- in. 20 years-what a come-down. 1 My theory is that the modern girl had better curb her alpine growth or she will outshadow the average American man altogether, forcing the poor, inhibited soul to court midgets to keep his own vanity intact. ..A rose with the longest stem isn't necessarily the .one most admired. Who wants to go through life carrying bandajds for a gal who is always bumping her forehead in .doorways? N a t u r a l l y we have to raise a crop of tall ones to keep our col- Icje basketball players happy, but that's no excuse for all the fair sex to try to grow clear out of sight. As the old French proverb goes: "When a wife can look down upon her husband's bald head, she talks to him more about dandruff than romance." Drafting Of Dentists For Services Slated \Vashinglon-(/P)-Selcctive Service is going to draft 335 dentists for the armed services unless the men accept commissions prior to their induction, set for April. If they accept commissions-; nd Selective Service says they may until the time or induction-they will get $100 a month extra pay. If they don't they will be inducted as buck privates but will be eligible for officers' commissions at regular pay afjet induction. Advertise in the TIMES--It pays!

Taxes c taking about 60 cents of each liar the average business earns a Iiifihcr percentage even than the peak of the IHSI war. Some companies give even more an that to the income tax col- ctor.-Their tax checks are more an twice 1 as big as a year ago. ntl this opens up some vexing jeslions for management and ockholders and, in the long run,- r employes, too: 1. Can present dividend rates 1 maintained? 2. Must business rrow more money for day by y cash operations? 3. Must it irrow more to build and expand? Can business induce the public invest more money? 5. Will is need -for cash make the money pply painfully tight by March V S. Collects Big Share Most shareholders note in the inual reports now being issued icle Sam is getting a far higher are of the profits than they are. e gets 52 cents of each dollar of rdinary profit" of the majority corporations. And when gross rnings top thi. average for the ^ars 1946-49, the amount above at average is called excess and e tax collector takes 30 cents ore of that "excess profit" dol- r. As a result, the net profit of the ajority of manufacturing com- snies 'is lower for 195 1 than it as for 1950. But not all of them. very oil company reporting so far is larger net profits than it \wed a year earlier. Business as very good for the oil com- anics, and also they, like the ining companies, get a special x allowance because of the de- etion of their assets due to the ature of their operations. Other companies doing better in )51 than in 1950 can be found in ese industries: i Machine tools. xil, utilities and airlines. But hilc profits went up for mines, ey went down for steel mills id metal fabricators. They went up for the airlines and down for, the railroads. Sales ol chemical companies soared but profit after taxes is down. Taxes and material controls cut earnings of the auto and appliance makers. Taxes and higher operating costs clipped the profits of stores. Because of the high tax rates, Uncle Sam has a real stake in trying to keep business profits high, .corporate management argues. The treasury expects to take in nearly 23 billion dollars in taxes from business this fiscal year. In the fiscal year starting July 1, the take is expected to be nearer 28 billion dollars, because the new higher rates were effective nine months of the 1950 year on which they were paid, but will be effective ,all 12 months this year. After Uncle Sam taxes the income of the corporation, he then taxes the income the individual gets from dividends the corporation pays. Dividend Rait Maintained In spile of paying more to the tax men, most corporations have maintained the dividend rate they pay to shareholders. This has resulted in a big drop in the amount of profit the companies are retaining to run the business. In 1950 retained earnings totaled 13'/j billion dollars hut last year they are estimated to have totaled 8Vi billion dollars. Since many companies arc spending as much as ever for new plants and equipment, the smaller retained earnings mean more trips to the banks or the security markets for money. But some companies will net inventory relief this year, now that these are in better balance. It is estimated that last year the larger inventories lied up a total of eight billion dollars of corporate funds. The search for cash, however, is likely to stay high on the list of management's duties. Even as with you, it may be hard for management to find the money to pay both Uncle Sam and the people you and they do business with. Dear Miss Dix: Two years ago i case.

I told him if he thought I was that ty^e of girl he'd bettor just forget about me. About a week later I received a letter from him which was quite different f r o m all the others, and ever since they have been more serious. My problem is this: Poes he mean all the things he -writes or are they just words without meaning? Do you .thing he could have fallen in love with me?--Carolyn. Answer: I hope your letter serves as a beacon to other girls who believe they must respond to a boys' overtures to keep his regard. They are so wrong, as your typical experience shews. A boy who is out for an evening of fun will often make advances to a girl just to see what happens. The right kind of girl repulses the lovemaking and automatically wins the boy's respect. If he's serious, he'll call again* with a more gentlemanly attitude. Such is the progress of your it Whydoesirth* change to Winter-Blended 6ASOUNE Don't blow your earmuffs, Sonny!
