WASHINGTON, Feb. 28. - More
than a million citizens, approxi-
mately half of those wA) must pay
income tax on March 15, will have
to pay three times as much tax to
the government this year as they
did last year.
The situation is brought about
through the return to the 1928 in-I
come tax rates after a one per cent
reduction for one year on incomes
of 1929 payable in 1930.
Old Rates In Effect.
The rates on normal income
which must be paid this year are
one and one-half per cent on the
firt $4,000 of net normal income,
three per cent on the next $4,000 of1
normal income, and five per cent
on all above $8,000. Last year the
taxpayer having $4,000 or less nor-
mal income paid only one-half per,
cent, those having from $4,000 to'
$8,000 income paid two per cent,
and above that on normal incomet
the rate was four per cent.

--Enoch Carlson will get back
the $500 worth of champagne,
gin, whiskey, and liquor that was
taken by county detectives from
his establishment in Edgwater,

Since it would have been im-

Hyde Outlines Way for
Drought Sufferers
to Get Relief.
Borah Scores Congress
for Timidity in
(By Associated Press)
$100,000,000 emergency relief fund
for the unemployed to be placed
at the disposal of President
Hoover was proposed in the Sen-
ate today while Secretary Hyde
outlined the basis on which
drought sufferers might obtain
government food loans.
Republican leaders made no
floor defense of the administration
in response to Democratic charges
of failure to provide necessary re-
lief. Little hope was held for enact-
ment of additional relief legisla-
tion now, however.
Caraway Accuses Hyde.
About the time Senator Caraway,
Democrat, Arkansas, contended
Hyde was "deliberately holding up"
the money appropriated in the $20,-
000,000 supplemental drought relief
fund, the secretary announced the
administration's arrangement has
been completed.
Returning to the city late today,
Hyde said there had been no delay.
Food loans may be obtained by
the farmers from the $20,000,000
fund in two ways under the plan
outlined, either to agricultural
credit corporations which the
measure contemplated increasing
and expanding, or through direct
loans from the seed loan office, de-
pendent upon "necessity, security,
and the individual case."
Money obtained from the credit
corporations, Hyde explained, could
be used just as if it had been ob-
tained from any bank. -
Wheeler Proposes Fund.
The proposal of Senator Wheeler,
Democrat, Montana, for creation of
a $100,000,000 emergency relief
fund followed contentions of Sen-
ators Borah, Republican, Idaho, and
Copeland, Democrat, New York,
that there remained time at this
session to enact adequate legisla-
