TAX ON BACHELORS
ON ITALIAN PLAN
PONDERED IN U. S.
Chicago, 111., April 22.—Taxation
officials are flirting with the idea of
a tax on bachelors in several states.
Benito Mussolini’s levy of 50 per
cent of the incomes of unmarried
Italian males, together with the spe-
cial attention given them in Germany,
and France, has suggested another
source of revenue to taxing groups in
this country, a survey showed Sunday.
But, generally speaking, Amer-
ican bachelors appear safe for a
while at least from a direct levy.
California bachelors would be taxed
from $5 to $25 a year if Rolland Van-
degrift, Director of Finance there,
had his way. The 1933 birthrate was
lowest in twenty-five years.
In Indiana Albert F. Walsman, a
State Tax Commissioner, considers
the idea has possibilities.
“Italy has proposed such a tax,” he
said, “so let’s see how their plan
works out. If it is practical it might
be adopted here.”
In Virginia Wilbur C. Hall, chair-
man of the Finance Committee, also
has given the matter consideration.
Though he mentioned it during the
recent legislative session, however,
he was not taken seriously. He is a

missioner, said the $1,000 income tax

NEW TIRE GIVES 50 PER CENT
LONGER NON-SKID MILEAGE
A new High Speed tire is announced
by Firestone Tire & Rubber Company
and is now on display, featuring an
increase of more than 50 per cent in
non-skid mileage, according to Gil-
liam Motor Co., local Firestone dealer.
“The new tire has five important
improvements—flatter tread, wider
tread, deeper non-skid, greater thick-
ness, and more and tougher rubber,”
Mr. “Gilliam said. “This is made pos-
sible by the Firestone patented pro-
cess of gum-dipping, by which the
high stretch cords are soaked and
coated with rubber, providing great-
er strength, safety and blow-out pro-
"The Firestone developments em-
bodied in this new tire have been
proven by constant testing on Fire-
stone’s fleet of test cars, day in and
day out, 24 hours a day, over all
kinds of roads and highways through-
out the country, 12 months in the

One Rhode Island legislator, con-
templating a bachelor, tax proposal,
remarked "The Governor wouldn’t
sign a bill like that.” Gov. Theodore
Francis Green is a bachelor.
So is Henry Horner, Governor of
Illinois, but neither has he been face
to face with the question of signing
such a bill.
A tax on Kansas bachelors should
be matched with a tax on old maids,
Chairman Walter Pleasant of the Tax
Commission recently said. The idea
was proposed to the Kansas Legisla-
ture several years ago but not con-
sidered very seriously.
Several Montana Legislatures like-
wise have entertained the idea—fa-
Wyoming officials predict that a
bachelor tax would never pass the
citizenry because it is predominately
male. Many miners, cowboys and oil
field workers would be hit.

be assessed without discrimination.

PAYS TO “CHECK UP”
Williamson County Sun: The Polk
County Enterprise, published at Liv-
ingston, Texas, states that an old
negro of that section, honest, honor-
able, hard-working darkey, had had
a pretty hard time all of his life.
About eight years ago the old man
had a “streak of luck” and came out
with $800 above his debts and ex-
penses. He placed the money in the
bank and was given a check book. For
some time checks came in, but finally
stopped after a few years, and a bal-
ance of $300 remained to his credit.
Recently the cashier of the bank
entered a store and heard the old
man complaining about the hard luck
he was having, heard him say he

display for the safety of motorists.

JHE new Firestone High Speed Tire
for 1934 is the greatest tire Firestone has
ever built. With its wider, flatter tread,
greater thickness, deeper non-skid, more
and tougher rubber, and greater non-skid
contact with the road, you get more than
50% longer non-skid mileage.
This new development is made
possible by the Firestone patented process
of Gum-Dipping, whereby the cotton
fibers inside the high-stretch cords are
soaked and coated with pure liquid
rubber. This provides greater strength,
safety and blowout protection. •
Firestone engineers pioneered and
developed the first successful balloon tire
in 1923, and it is only natural that
Firestone would lead in the further
development oi tire construction to meet
the demands of the high-powered
high-speed cars of today.
The new Firestone High Speed Tires
for 1934, have already proved their worth
by constant testing on the Firestone fleet
of test cars over all kinds of roads and
highways throughout the United States.
Firestone High Speed Tires are further
subjected to the most severe tests known
on the greatest proving ground in the
world—the Indianapolis Speedway. In
fact, Firestone Tires have been on the
winning cars in the annual 500-Mile
Indianapolis Race for fourteen consecutive
years — conclusive evidence of Firestone’s
outstanding leadership in tire development
