Federal Tax
Revenues Drop,
Reports Show,
Liquor, Tobacco, Night
Club Collections Rise
WASHINGTON, Aug. 20-- (W) -
Federal tax revenues dropped $3,128,-
290,000 last fiscal year, due princi-
pally to decline in collections from
the excess profits tax,repealed after
V-J Day.
An Internal Revenue breakdown
today showed total revenues for the
12 months ended last June 30 of $40,-
672,096,000. The Excess Profits Tax
alone declined $3,181,031,000.
Corporation and individual income
taxes (including withholdings from
wages) dropped $239,766,000 and
$329,777,000 respectively, but there
were offsetting increases resulting
from the buying boom and spending
for pleasure,.
Liquor tax collections increased
$216,298,000 and tobacco taxes $233,-
374,000. Taxes on admissions to night
clubs, theaters and the like rose $57,-
801,000; those on club dues and in-
itiation fees $4,739,000.
Retail consumption tax on jewelry,
furs, cosmetics and luggage brought
the government $67,941,000 more than
a year earlier, and manufacturers'
excise taxes on various goods-au-
tos, gasoline, radios, phonograph
records, musical instruments and
others - yielded $140,160,100 more
than in fiscal 1945.

Transportation to and from the
overseas theatre will be supplied;
families will not accompany the in-
structors. Contracts run for 12
months, and, in exceptional cases, for
nine months.
Instructors are being hired for the
following subjects: accounting, art,
business administration, English, gov-
ernment and political science, math-
ematics, music, physical sciences,
psychology, social studies, mechan-
ical, electrical, agricultural, aeronau-
tical and automotive engineering, and
These instructors will have a stand-
dard work week of 40, hours, with
overtime payments in cases when
they are required to work up to 48
The schols are distinct from those
established for children of military
personnel overseas. They are design-
ed to help troops to complete their
high school training, prepare for
entering college, acquire skills in
mechanical trades.

Joos Discusses
In Talk Today
-The use of the sound spectro-

the acoustic side of speech.
The instrumental records made by
the spectrograph provides a syn-

phonetics which can be discussed in
terms familiar to phoneticians'|"eat-

in Review

Plans of the School of Business1
Administration for the fall semester
include a revival of the graduate pro-
gram in real estate and the expan-
sion of courses in the field of foreign
The one year real estate program,
which was offered before the war
and is believed to be the only one of
its kind on the graduate level, is ar-
ranged especially for graduates of a
general business course and is in;-
tended to give the student a year of
intensive work in the field of real
estate which will prepare him to go
into professional practice. In additiona
to basic courses offered in the busi-
ness administration school, 22 courses
in other schools and departments of
the University will afford the student
an opportunity toselect a particular
phase of real estate for more inten-
sive study.'
A one year scholarship to be
awarded by the faculty of the school
and open to graduates of accredited
schools or colleges who have a bache-
lor's degree, has been offered by the'

trade wil be offered in the fall by
Prof. Dudley M. Phelps, who re-
cently returned to the school after
several years with the State De-

and Howard Westing, associate pro-
fessor of marketing.
Prof. Miller, formerly of the Uni-

Chinese Spokesman
Denies War Motives
NANKING, Aug. 20-G)-Wang
Ping-Nan, Communist spokesman,
told the Associated Press tonight that
the Chinese Communists "have no de-
sire to overthrow the government."
Commenting on a broadcast Mon-
day by the Communist Yenan radio
urging the Communist liberated areas
to "mobilize," Wang said:
"This (the broadcast) was not a
declaration of war. It was in no way a
mobilization of troops but merely
moral mobilization."
"We have no desire to overthrow
the government."
The Communists, Wang said in an
interview, want only unconditional
peace and a resolution of all problems
according to the decisions reached at
the all-party conference last Febr-

countant examination, he took top
honors in the country.
Prof. Westing is a graduate of
the University and taught here
several years ago. Since then, he
has served as a lieutenant in the
Navy, with the Office of Price Ad-
ministration in Washington, with
the Foreign Economic Administra-
tion and with the Department of

British Accused
Of Censoring
By The Associated Press
The Calcutta riots brought death to
posibly 3,000 Moslems and Hindus,
yet dispatches published in this
country mention no damage to for-
eign-or British-personnel or pro-
The British Administration in In-
dia has been known to censor news
before, and there is circumstantial
evidence it still is on the job-such
as ordering American correspon-
dents out of government headquart-
ers, and issuing a vague communi-
que saying the "situation had im-
proved" just as the rioting had spread
to its maximum extent to the Hoogh-
ly River.
Newsworthy Facts Withheld
In view of the anti-British and an-
ti-foreign sentiment marking earlier
Indian riots (as last February, when
even American GI's got banged up)
the fact that there was none this
time-if there were none--should
have been newsworthy. Yet no cor-
respondent seems to have advanced
that claim.
If all this suggests that the full
story of the riots hasn't yet been re=
ported, it also suggests the possibly
terrifying tension which may have
prevented it.
Nehru Favors Rusisa
Jawaharlal Nehru, the Hindu lea-
der, declared last Thursday that In-
dia should "develop closer relations
with Russia," and that he hoped Rus-
sia would take part in an "inter-As-
ian bloc" which he is promoting.

Over 50 new grasses have been bred
at the University of California, Dr.
R. M. Love of California's College of
Agriculture announced. With the aid
of a plant-mutating chemical known
as colchicine, the experimentors have
developed new grasses which will
remain green and tender even during
hot, dry summer months.The new
strains, including over 20 new species,
survive admirably under dry condi-
tions on therplains. The scientists
are now selecting the finest of the
50 new grasses for vigor and growth,
and seed is being grown in large
scale tests.

Fly Murder.. .
An electrified screen, available
to fit windows and doors, consists
of two sets of bars, supported in a
metal frame. The bars, which are
electrified by a transformer oper-
ating at 10 milliamperes, set up an
electrical field which serves as a
barrier to insects, according to
Business Week. The moisture with-
in the bodies of insects, it is be-
lieved, causes the electric current
to complete a circuit from one bar
to another, and the device thus uses
only a dime's worth of current per
month and is harmless to humans
and animals.

Sum mer 'Stains ...
The United States Department of
Agriculture recommends ammonia or
vinegar for removal of perspiration
stains from summer clothes. If the
stains are fresh, the spot is moisten-
ed with water and held over the
fumes from household ammonia wa-
ter. If the stains are a few days old,
however, and have turned alkaline,
moistening with very dilute vinegar
sometimes restores the color.
Radioactive Iodine .-
Radioactive preparations contain-
ing iodine are now the prescribed
curative for certain types of goiter,
which is a disease caused by mal-
functioning of the thyroid gland.
Administered by mouth, the cost is as
low as three dollars and eliminates
the necessity of surgical operation,
Dr. Earle M. Chapman of the Massa-
chusetts General Hospital, Boston, re-
ports. The ray-emitting element is
now procurable from the fission piles
at Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

War Reversed,.. .
Man's usual warfare on insects,
to prevent their ruining his crops,
is being reversed in California,
where ranchers are planning to pit
insects against the prickly pear
cactus, which is enroaching upon
their grazing land, Business Week
reports. Two bugs of the squash
type have long sucking beaks and
suck the cactus pads dry in addi-
tion to spreading a bacterial di-
sease Two moths lay sticks of 50
eggs on prickly pear cacti spines
and their larvae pierce the pads,
eating the flesh and leaving the
cactus as a dead shell.

More Pineapples ...
The newly-synthesized weed killer,
2, 4-D, has been found to increase
the yield and quality of pineapples
in Hawaii when it is sprayed on in
highly diluted form. The results are
so marked that producers have in-
stituted 2, 4-D spraying as a regul-
ar routine on pineapple plantations.
The chemical apparently has a
growth stimulating effect on pine-
apples. Other fruits are being tested
to discover other possible effects of
2, 4-D;upon growth.
Scientists Honored .. .
Plastics developed from acetylene
have won a Stalin prize for Dr. Ivan
Nazarov, director of the organic
chemistry laboratory of the Academy
of Sciences in Moscow, Russia, ac-
cording to Science News Letter.
The research work produced a ser-
ies of organic compoundp of the vin-
lyacetylene homologues. These com-
pounds find applications in strong
glues to adhere glass, plastics, woods,
metals, stones, and other solids. Dr.
Nazarov produced other resins of
transparency by polymerization of
esters, glycols, and ethers produced
through the condensation of vinyl-
acetylene with certain keto com-
pounds. The Russian scientist is
known for his work on other organic
compounds as well.
Stalin Prize , , ,
Dr. Marie Petrova, famed woman
physiologist of the U.S.S.R., has
been awarded the Stalin Prize for
her researches upon conditioned re-
flexes in animals. In spite of the
terible conditions of besieged Len-
ingrad where Dr. Petrova did her
work, her investigations did not

Rug Safety .,..
Husbands, whose wives delight in
laying slippery little ornamental rugs
on waxed floors, will now have little
to worry about. Rubber anchors for
these scatter rugs will reduce acci-
dents by keeping rugs from slipping
on highly polished floors. The protec-
tive underlay, which is a sponge rub-
ber cushion, can be cut to fit any
size rug or runner. It can be cleaned
with damp cloths.
Glass Research.. .
Windshield icing and .interior fog-
ging are said to be eliminated by a
new development in glass research,
according to reports in Business
Week. The idea involves the use of
a permanent transparent coating that
successfully conducts an electrical
current over the glass panel. The de-
velopment is credited to William 0.
Lytle, a research engineer.
New Science Journal . ..
The newly-organized Michigan
Junior Academy of Science, Arts,
and Letters is planning to issue the
first edition of its new Journal in
September, according to Prof.. G.
W. Prescott of the Department of
Botany, Michigan State College.
The Junior Academy is fostered by

the Michigan Senior Academy of
Science, which is affiliated with the
American Association for the Ad-
vancement of Science.
All science, art, English, literature,
camera, and other such high school
clubs in Michigan are eligible for
membership in the Junior Academy,
whose headquarters may be reached
by writing to Prof. Prescott at Michi-
gan State College. Prof. Prescott,
who served as visiting professor at
the University's biological station in
Cheboygan during the summer, is
serving as Junior Academy sponsor
and correlator.

Fluorescein Dye .
Fluorescein, one of the most pow-
erful fluorescent chemicals known,
has long been used to trace under-
ground sources of contamination in
cases of typhoid fever. The crystal-
lized dye is thrown into the contam-
inated well and the wells in the
neighborhood are tested to observe
the fluorescence, if any. If any ap-
pears, the contamination is getting
into the second well.
