Most significantly, perhaps, the Treasury said it wouldn't refund m December some 16',4 billion in ong-term bonds, bearing either two or two and one-quarter per cent. Financial circles here interpret lhat as meaning the Treasury feels it would have to offer higher rates t h a n that if it refunded in December. Officials Worry Treasury officials worry because this increase in interest rates means that the cost of carrying the public debt is growing, adding just lhat much more lo what the government spends each year. Some of them complain that the Federal Reserve Board, if it chose, could get the Treasury oft the hook easily by turning a "tight money market" into an easy one--through agreeing lo buy up any government bond offered on the market. Member banks could then sell their bonds profitably to the federal reserve banks, and get money to inept all the demands ot borrowers--both private and governmental. The Federal Reserve Board, however, considers this easy noney policy inflationary--con- ends it costs the country much more in price inflation than it aves the Treasury in interest payments. The U.

Stevenson To Make Labor Day Talk In Detroit Swing Into The South Indicated; Campaign Mapped Springfield, Hl.-(/P)-Gov. Adlai Stevenson was reported ready today to kick, off his presidential campaign with a Labor Day speech in Detroit followed by a swing into the South to hold the Dixie vote in line for the Democratic ticket. JThis appeared to be the itinerary shaping up In the campaien headquarters directed by Wilson W. Wyatt of Louisville, Ky. This morning Stevenson p u t aside his work temporarily to attend ceremonies formally opening the annual Illinois State Fair. The . Fair Grounds will become some| thing of a political battleground I next week when speeches will be made by Stevenson, Vice President ' Albcn Barkley and the GOP vice I presidential candidate, Sen. Bichard Nison of California. Nixon is scheduled to speak on Wednesday and Stevenson and Barkley on Thursday. The Illinois governor will have a chance next Tuesday to discuss his campaign plans with President Truman in Washington. He will fly to the capital Tuesday morning, meet with the president and his cabinet, and return here in the evening. Truman said yesterday the meeting was arranged at Stevenson's request. Stevenson has not yet disclosed just what he wishes to Jiscuss with Truman and others on the Washington trip. Presumably it will deal with the campaign strategy and coordination of Stevenson's own plans with those of Truman. To Seek Labor Backing The tentative decision to open the campaign in Detroit, it was said, came afler young Fen. Blair Moody of Michigan invited Stevenson to make a Labor Day speech in the motor city. It is known t h a t Stevenson intends to make a strong bid for labor's support and Detroit is one of the strongholds ot the CIO. Four years agoPresident Truman formally opened his campaign with a Labor Day speech in De: troit. ' To Name Chairman One of Stevenson's major problems in the next few days will be to complete the organization which will help him in his campaign. The top item on this list will be to name a new Democratic national chairman to succeed Frank E. McKinney of Indianapolis who is reported on his way out.

The new printed tax receipts which I designed and have furnished to the Collector's office have relieved you of much tiresome waiting when paying taxes. Since I have worked through every step of this progressive method and have brought it into use in Washington County, it is only natural that I would want to operate this system for you.
