Recreation Projects Nearly Equal
To Heavy Industry, Report Shows
The U.S.A. seems to have a
Hew heavy industry or the equi-
valent thereof, Yoakum Tex Tan
President C. C. Welhausen con-
cluded after a recent trip to
New York City.
Addressing ine Yoakum Ro-
tary Club, Welhausen told of
seeing a $68 million recreation
I* project under construction there,

60 and entitled “Freedom Land.”
He reported that it is com-

million dollar setup of recrea-
tional facilities, amusement
stands, concessions, mechanical
merry-go-rounds of every des-
cription for sparetime enter-
tainment of family groups by
me thousand — ana minions.
Mr. Welhausen traced the ori-
gin of the "Freedom Land” pro-
ject in New York City, where
the required 200 acres will in-
clude parking space for twelve
thousand cars and the amuse-
ment provisions for the six mil-

to time during the day, not (non
excluding the burning of Chica-
go and Civil War scenes.
The project, similar to five
more planned in Florida, Texas,
Colorado and western states,
was started by men who had no
money, nothing except big ideas
and careful planning which they
"sold” to securities companies
who in turn sold stock and in
one day raked in $68 million for

Welhausen cited the develop-
ment of the new kind of indus-
try as an indication that the day
of opportunity has not passed
and that people with ability, i-
deas and energy still find it
possible to achieve fabulous suc-
cess and earning power almost
Comments on the new deve-
lopment in the field of recrea-

File Tax Early For
Taxpayers of the Austin Dis-
trict are heeding the advice of
District Director R. L. Phlnney
to file their Federal income tax
returns early so they may re-
ceive any refund due them as
quickly as possible.
Mr. Phiney said 320,000 indi-
vidual taxpayers already have
filed their 1959 returns presum
ably because many of them may
have- a refund coming and they
are eager to get It.
"We have started to process
th returns already filed,” FTdn-
noy said. "If they are in perfect
order and a refund is due, our
(‘.illy processing will speed up
the refund checks accordingly.
Those returns which require a
pre-refund audit will take long-
er to process, but in every such
case, the taxpayer will be not-
ified by letter of the reason for
delay. Even the pre-refund audit
may be completed sooner be-
cause of early filing.’’
Phlnney again repeated his
tips for early filers who want
to receive any refund due them
as quickly as possible.
One is not to omit any essen-
tial information on your return,
such as your signature (and
that of your spouse if it is a
joint return), and the W-2 tax
Another is to print your ad-
dress as legibly as you can print
And the third is not to write
for a few weeks asking where
your refund is because replies
to such letters only slow down
the whole refunding process.
