As the final curtain was being drawn on the Sicilian campaign, suicidal German rearguards planted themselves in the craggy island's hill tops, and mountain sides, and with mortar and machine gun fought Entering Palermo with American troeps,. : ' Private Joseph Mole of- Jamestown, N.

In those last hours, the German rearguards' position became more precarious as . daring units, from Gen. George S. Patton's American 7th army landed behind their lines, and aided by naval batteries and dive bombers slashed their way through bayonets to firmly entrench themselves on shore. Despite heavy anti-aircraft fire which was said to have thrown up a wall: of steel, waves of Allied bombers hit the. important industrial center of Milan. Terrific detona- tions could be heard on the Swiss border miles away as the bombers pushed their way through the flak to drop their incendiaries and block- busters. DRAFT: Induction Qrder Now- that Selective Service of- ficials have- authorized the drafting of. fathers October 1, plans have been drawn for induction according to the importance of a man's occu- pation. . Under the new plan, a new classi- fication known as \super-eligibility\ would be! icijeated, under which cer- tain skitleo}; jobs in direct war pro- duction \would place the employee .feist m the draft, list. The plan also would extend the list of n'oB-essential* jobs, ;hblders'of which, would be eligible for immedi- ate call, regardless of number of children. In this case, such men would -be given the opportunity to switch to more essential industries. Thus, those in non-essential ocr cupations would, be called first, be- fore essential and \super-eligible\ employees* About 300,000 fathers are to be. drafted this year. RUSSIA: Fighting Unsurpassed , Russia's. resurging manpower rolled, like a tidal wave over the endless Russian plains, and Germa- ny's\ stubborn armies gave under the weight. To the north* the Reds drove on Smolensk from two sides, leaving the Nazis, a 140-mile gap in which to retreat along the corridor Na- poleon Bonaparte used over a hun- cire'd years ago to pull his ragged and beaten army out of the country. To the south, the Reds bore down en Kharkov, like they bore down on Orel, from three fronts\ the north, east and south. Possessed with no natural fortifications, battered Khar- kov, Once the mighty \Pittsburgh\ of Russia, lay exposed on the bar- ren plains to the Reds' massed fire power and troops. Biggest Merger Originally incorporated in New York state in 1851, the Western Un- ions' Telegraph company, with a capi- tal of $170,000, almost immediately established a poEcy of purchasing or consolidating with less formidable competitors. .

TUBE: fTotal production of the five lead- ing grain crops was set at 5,282,000,- 000 bushels for 1943, 700,000,000 less than harvested last year, on the basis of estimates of the depart- ment of agriculture. Because of favorable growing con- ditions in July, the department looked for a corn crop of 2,874,711,- 000 bushels against last year's har- vest of 3,175,154,000; a wheat crop of 834,894,000 against 981,327,000, an oats crop of 1,189,546,000 against 1,- 244,255,000, a barley crop of 348,- 848,000 against 426,150,000, and a rye crop of 33,314,000 against 57,341,000 Combined production of the four feed, grains—corn, oats, rye and bar- ley—was estimated at 111,000,000 tons below last year's yield Soy- bean harvest was set at 200,328,000 bushels Milk production held close to last year's level and egg output was at a peak, except in the West PACIFIC: Hit Both Ends While American troops hemmed in the last surviving band of Japa- nese on New Georgia island in the Solomons, U S airmen lifted their Liberator bombers off of the Aleu- tian runways and headed them for the northern-most -chain' of. islands Of the Japanese empire. .

ALLIED MEETING: Politics and War With Allied forces at the gates of the European fortress, with Marshal Pietro Badoglio's military govern- ment of Italy reportedly receptive to peace terms, and with Russia hav- ing indicated willingness to nego- tiate with a. \democratic\ Germany purged, of Naziism, Prime Minister Winston Churchill and\ President Franklin D. Roosevelt, came togeth- er for their sixth personal meeting of the war. Hying to the North American con- tinent with Churchill wa : s a staff of military and naval chieftains, and joining them - for discussion Were ranking U. S. army and navy of- ficers. The combination' of these staffs indicated further operations of joint character, such as those in North Africa and Sicily, where the services of the two nations teamed for effective action. \As Churchill and Roosevelt met, Russia threw a bombshell into the diplomatic picture by declaring that Premier Joseph, Stalin had not been, invited to the conference, and there- fore neither he nor an accredited Soviet representative would attend.

TAXES: Who Pays Of the total of 22 billion dollaihs collected by the U. S. treasury for the- fiscal year 1943 which ended June 30, the states of New York and Illinois contributed almost 28 per cent.- The treasury's figure showed that the people in eight highly industrial- ized states paid 59 per cent of the government's total revenue,. Besides New York and Illinois, these states were Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan. By contrast, the treasury said North and South Dakota, each with a.small population, paid about .08 of the. total revenue. Of the revenue collected, more than 10 billion dollars was in the form of individual and corporation income taxes. .:'-.• LABOR: Shun Lewis Big, burly John L.

' Trijity you don't see the tax col- lector* bu,t you know who writes the tax laws and the folks who do (con- gress) lead, a -most unhappy life,, especially in an election year sueh as we are approaching. '.-'•' The complicated problem they face can be simply stated—think it over arid figure out what you would do if you had to write a tax law. The problem is this: how to collect' the most dollars arid lose the least votes. \ Soak the rich? Well, they have the money and it. hurts them ;tbe: least, but unfortunately, there are not enough of them to soak. It is too bad because they are so few in number that their votes don't mat- ter so much. (Only 46,949 people or approximately one eight-hundredth of those with incomes earn over $10,- 000 a year.) \ V '-'. Tax the rest? That will bring in- the biggest total but they are the ones with the votes. The President says we need 106 billion dollars to run the war this year. The treasury.says that out of every dollar collected, 90 cents goes to pay the war bills. . So there have been, a number of, schemes concocted which are.aimed at getting the nervous dollars, the ones most likely to «reate inflation. Presumably they are the dollars that belong to the people, who\ are ,nbw getting a lot more money than they : did before the war- It would be just to take the \excess profits\ to pay for the war .especially.because the people who are getting a.lot more! than they are used to. aire the ones who spend most freely. So compulsory savings has been suggested.- That is, making Uncle Sam A collect a. part oS:eserybpdyf-s income, which would be. returned after the war. Then there .is a scheme to tax spending. In other words, tax the dollars which are spent on extras, dollars that get back into circulation,and push up the inflation spiral; Mot'the dollars that' go into homes or life insurance or paying oId : debts; -butf the dollars that romp, off for more clothes than you need to wear, more food and drink than .you need' to absorb, more gadgets than you ought to get along with in wartime. Then there is another tax.-r-the personal excess income tax. \\-•-\ That is a tax on the amSunt of money that you are receiving now that, you weren't receiving- before the. war. , Lacking Popularity None of these methods is popular. There is a. sentimental objection to compulsory savings. It smacks, ac- cording to its opponents, top much of totalitarianism, of. an interfer- ence with the individual's personal habits. The President is opposed to it—and his wife agrees with him— the treasury-is opposed to it. .- Thespehding taxis said to be too, complicated, aiid ,^ewise-app^?rs to. be unpopular ,-wfei the .treaiaury, /.''_ . The}? there is ^s, personal^cess' income -.tax of which'you will sdori be hearing more. The,, chief objec- tion to that tax*seems to be -that- it is r too hard ito work put; - that it is too hard''to make .'it just and fair. Even the Nazis who- tried it gave it up after aboiat.a. year's'trial.; *\..';. When the. personal, excess fiicome tax,pomes up, you will hear .many arguments against.ii,:, Like many, of these oflier ''unqrthpdax^^methodl,, it requires.the^esteblishment of what is called aV'-base period\ to, estabr. lish a \comparison.' That is, ..some period, of \time'..during ~ which;- the amount earned, by the individual, is taken as a.base; Then what he is making now is compared with that \base\ and the difference taxed. But that is a pretty hard thing to work out because so many adjust- ments would have to. .be : made for special cases that.the government would never be able'to.examine each case and pass on' it fairly. Take the young doctor. The year before the war, he may have been graduated from medical- • school. Probably he had little or no income then. Then he begins to practice ana! in Wartime, doctors are in de- mand.. He may have made, a fair income,this year. Would it he fair to tax the \excess\ if:it were the dif- ference between, this- year's earning- and the. \base .period\' when be was earning nothing at all?
