4-Aloona (le.) Upper Dtt Melnei Thursday, March t§, HI^^HIII^Hli^HHHB^^IHIlBBHIIHBHHH ^^•^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^•^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ FROM THE ATTIC . . ... TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your By Dick Pelmtr A new air letter sheet has been announced for April honor- Ing President Kennedy, thus making the current attractive jet design obsolete. This Is a good Item for commemorative use, since so many do use this "for message only" type of correspondence to citizens of foreign lands. I hope the result will be more satisfactory than the stamp. Some 44 stamp issuing governments and agencies have thus far produced postal Items In honor of the President. I would say that about two-thirds were logical and sincere and the remainder motivated by the desire to cash In. Eleven of the Latin American states have paid tribute to the founder of the All- lance for Progress, but only a handful of our military allies, Including Germany where his personal Impact was tremendous, and the Philippines. 1 am rather surprised that nothing has yet appeared from Ireland and somehow one would have expected Canada to Join In, altho this may be contrary to their postal policy. Questionable Issues Include those of the islands of Davaar and Sanda, purely for local use and of doubtful necessity, which the President likely never heard of. Many African states have participated and their actions are motivated at least in part by civil rights matters. Most of these states will likely honor the 100th anniversary of Lincoln's death. Monaco Issued a single value costing the collector 15 cents which Js fine, but were the import variety at $35 or the special sheet at $57 really necessary? An Interesting monthly paper covering the complete collecting field Is the Collectors News, Box 566, Columbus, Nebr. 68601. Most of the ads both buy and tell are classified in type, tho there are some display, show announcements, etc. To give you an idea of the scope, here are the advertising departments: art objects, autographs, automobiles, aviation, books, bottles, brass, buttons, cards, china, circus items, clocks, coins, currency, documents, dolls, films, firearms, furniture, glass, genealogy, guns, Indian relics, insignia, jewelry, lamps, letters, magazines, maps, minerals, music items, newspapers, pewter, photographic, pictures, political items, posters, prints, radios, railroad items, rocks, silver, space, sports, stamps, timepieces, toys, uniforms, valentines, vehicles, watches, weapons, wireless items and miscellaneous. There are usually ads In each department. An average Issue of the paper runs 30pages. This would be a good reference to have when checking the attic. The only trouble is that you might end up throwing exactly nothing away. Many of the advertisers are Individual collectors and buy ads are as numerous OB sell, -o- Apparently In some areas of the state, there has been an effort to Include at least coin collections under the personal property or monies and credit tax. I think the question of hobbles and tax liability Is a most complex one. A $5 gold piece has a collect- Corn-Soybean Clinic Shows how weed control pays off Formers attending the Corn-Soybean Clinic found out that pre-emergence weed control In soybeani can Increase yields 3 to 9 bushels per acre, at well a* save important labor and provide crop insurance. It was pointed out that even on land where weeds are not a big problem, Amiben pre-emergence herbicide has Increased yields and saved man hours. Controls weeds and grasses A weed control specialist discussed the full season cc.Mrol of bom broadleaf weeds and grasses with just one application of Amiben. The product has been proved on millions of acres of soybeans with outstanding results. Amiben It economical, safe to handle, easy to use — available as a liquid concentrate or as granules. Label directions should always be followed. Weed control illustrated A 20-minute color picture shown at the meeting Illustrated in a time-motion sequence how Amiben, "when Incorporated in the top soil layer, kills weeds and grasses as they sprout. Actual farm field trials in Iowa and Illinois were shown to illustrate early weed control, field performance during the season and yield counts. No soil residue It was pointed out during the meeting that a full rotation of crops may be practiced with Amiben herbicide because there is no soil residue at harvest. Amiben Is probably the No. 1 weed control chemical on soybeans — and Is recommended by agricultural colleges and experiment statloni in leading soybean states. You can't sell weeds — why grow them ?

AMBIER, PENNSYLVANIA Ing market value of around $17 to $20 for common dates, a bullion value of $8.75 and a redemption value at the bank of $5. It has now no legal tender status. Tho a coin, it is not legally money. It Is an antique and an artistic way of legally having gold, yet many may have just M much gold in the form of Jewelry or watches. Old currency has a collector value over face, but the government does not recognize this and it is doubtful If the banks would accept the uncertain, highly variable market value as the basis for collateral on a loan. Interests change In the antique and art fields, thus radically changing the market. A painting bought In the 1930's for $3000 recently sold at a New York auction for $250 due to a declining Interest In the type and painter. The article stated that about G Individuals in Oes Molnes volunteered that they had coin collections. I hardly need comment on this absurdity. If one type of collection Is to te taxed, then all should be taxed. To my mind, Income is the really basic factor, Income from all sources equally rated. Wouldn't it be much less confusing and certainly fairer to make this the major tax source without additional liabilities based on how the individual chooses to spend that which, hopefully, Isleftover?
