TB Seals Sent'
To U.S. Homes
Christmas Campaign
Begins Tomorrow
Millions of families . throughout
Michigan and the Urnited States will
receive letters starting tomorrow,
sealed with a little one-inch picture
of a lamplighter.
The letters will contain a sheet of
the National Tuberculosis Associa-
tion's 1§46 Christmas seals, which
they will be asked to buy.
The campaign against tuberculosis
has been supported both in the state
and nationally, by the sale of Christ-
mas Seals for nearly 40 years. Their
purchase gives support to a campaign
to control the disease which causes
the greatest number of deaths among
young people between 15 and 35. Tu-
berculosis kills at the rate of one per-
son every ten minutes.
The Michigan Tuberculosis Asso-
ciation has been at work since 1908
on a program of education and con-
trol and working for the provision of
public funds.
Among the services which have
been set up in the state by the Christ-
mas Seal are education through
schools, industries, clinics, posters
and libraries.
1s. Shares Dearth
Of Atomuc Materials
Only by international cooperation
can the United States get enough
raw materials for peaceful harnessing
of atomic energy, Prof. K. K. Landes,
chairman of the geology department,
This country is in no position to
wage an extensive atomic -war, he
said, pointing out that the greatest
known supplies of raw materials for
atomic energy are far removed from
the United States in Central Africa,
India, and near the Arctic Circle in
Canada. If i; is any consolation, he
added, these supplies are likewise at
considerable distance from the in-
dustrial centers of the other big

Michigan taxpayers are paying 288
different taxes to the state, local
and national government, according
to Henry Steffens, director of the
Michigan Survey.
Steffens said that most of the
taxes are passed on to the ultimate
consumer, including those paid in-
"Business and industry act as mere
collection agencies," he declared, but
"the ultimate consumer in purchas-

ing for use rather than re-sale, can-
not avoid paying all taxes levied
against the commodity prior to the
time of the retail purchase."
Pointing out that governmental
revenue last year in M i c h i g a n
amounted to approximately $550 for
each man, woman and child, stef-
fens estimated that each taxpayer
spends 25 to 40 per cent of his gross
earnings for government.
