Washington \ighlights Congressmen who never paid much attention to the labeling on packages are doing it now. They can thank the Food and Drug Administration, and Maxwell House Coffee, for their interest. It seems that the FDA discovered Maxwell House had labeled some jars "giant economy" and that these 10-ounre jars were selling for 14.4 cents an ounce. But Maxwell House also had a 6-ounce jar which sold for the equivalent of 12.5 cents an ounce, or 1.9 cents cheaper than the "giant economy" size. Now the question of misbranding has led to a Senate probe, and an agency of the Federal government now finds itself compelled to tell a major food manufacturer that he is misleading the customers. About 5,400 jars of the "economy size" were seized from a warehouse after the labeling discovery. * * * Did you know that some Americans are still living under martial law that carries back to the days of WW II? Senator Ernest Gruening (Dem. Alaska), has called attention to the fact that Guam went under Navy rule in 1941, when it appeared that a Japanese invasion was pending. In 1959 Congress passed an act which transferred administration of Guam government to the Department of the Interior, established civilian courts again, etc. But the U. S. Navy commander on Guam still insists that Navy .rule is supreme. He arbitrarily N decides which American citizens can and cannot leave the island or go to it, and the Senator from Alaska intends to see that this little matter is straightened out. Judy Gerber Capped If there are two major fights on the floors and in the cloakrooms of the legislative branches of our government today, they are (1) the proposed medical care for the aged bill, and (2) the proposed withholding system for dividends and interest. Both matters concern vast portions of our citizenry, both pro and con. Opponents of the withholding plan boil their arguments down the extra work involved, both privately and by the government, in sending 20% of the dividends and interest to a Federal agency, and ultimately crediting it to the taxpayers properly, and that fact that it can work.a hardship on some where'the "withholding represents basic income and' not taxable "or taxpaying excess. Friends of the measure claim that so long as the average worker has his taxes withheld arbitrarily in withholding on salaries, others who made incomes from dividends and interest should be in the saihe boat. Secondly, the government seems to be of the opinion that many dividend-earners are not reporting their dividend. A third, but minor group, asks why there isn't a simpler solution, such as having lists of persons and totals they receive submitted to the Internal Revenue Service, and checked against tax returns for honesty. This, they say, would require less book work, and might have the same effect in getting everything properly declared. * * * Some of the more studious members of Congress are reading a book called "Organized Crime in America", recently published. The book traces underworld infiltration into many aspects of modern business on the legitimate side, as well as some not so legitimate like dope, white slavery, loan- sharking, extortion, and general labor racketeering. The author, incidentally, is Gus Taylor, director of politics, education and training for the International Garment Workers' Union. Congressmen think he should be in a position to "know". In 1!M6 one Nicolue Malaxa came to the U. S. from Rumania on a trade mission. He is still here, as a "temporary visitor". But Congressmen Alvin E. O'Konski (R- Wis.) and Victor Anfuso (D-N. Y.) have found that Mr. Malaxa has a most interesting past. In 1940 he was well-to-do industrialist in Rumania and backer of the Nazi-like "Iron Guard". During World War II he was a partner of Albert Goering, Herman's brother, and helped supply the Nazi army. But after the war he switched sides. joined in with the Communist government of Rumania. It was from that group he came to the U. S. The Immigration Service moved to deport him, but he was saved by a bill introduced by Richard Nixon, then U. S. Senator from California, the state where Malaxa said he had an industrial plant. This has since been found to be non-existent. O'Konski and Anfuso ask a governmental investigation — and if nothing else deportation. VIOLETS Mn.
