BATES, Publisher SUBSCRIPTION PRICE $2.00 A lot of folks are still wondering about the wherecome for their income tax. -o:o- This is a Rood month to beKin worrying over what next month will bring forth. It is hard to believe the bottom has fallen out of business while prices stay up so well. -o.o- According to Hank Ford the harps that are played by the angel., will never be Jews'-harps. :?: There are a lot of men who voted for what was right, but they are try ing to drink up what is left. The more direct the tax. the more the payer directs his attention to the matter of governmental expen ditures. ::o: It is well that we have not con gress on our hands while we're busy whipping the baseball teams into shape. :5: It is hard for a lot of folks to un derstand that personal liberty is the privilege of doing what a majority of the people permit. :o: It must be held in mind that Sec retary fo Interior Fll will fiave much to do with every water fall power concerns will want. :o: The chief of police at Sunbury. Pa., rules women must wear skirts four inches below knees. Class leg islation in favor of the long-limbed, eh? :o: Cleveland, O.. judge says "any man can be elected judge." confirming the suspicion of many who have been giving particular attention to judi cial decisions lately. Among the suicides in this country last year were 36 millionaires and 23 million-heiresses. Evidently hav ing money to burn doesn't get rid of all the troubles of life. :o: "We are suffering from to; much legislation, too much law, and too litle common sense," says Governor John M. Parker, of Louisiana. And that time you spilled a whole earful. Governor. :o: There can be no forward mo Yemen; building in Plattsmouth. or else where, so long as organized labor in sists on war time wages. It is bet ter to work for a reasonable wage than not to work at all. :c: Secretary of War Weeks and Sec retary of Navy Denby are both en tirely bald-headed a suggestive co incidence. In the midst of terrible battle they will never suffer the mor tifying pain of seeing their hair stand on end. or CLOTHES ! The price of our dry cleaning cuts down the price of clothes. Dainty Dorothy says that she has found out that we take most excellent care of the gar ments entrusted to us and that our charges should make friends for this house. Our dyeing proves satisfactory, as we use the latest approved methods and the best dyes.

To be kicked out of office is bad enough, but to be shot in addition is the last straw. :o: An observant subscriber wants to know why it is that a short-skirted girl, crossing a muddy street, gathers up her skirts, although they are al ready two feet in the clear. In fact of the fact, why worry about the reason? : o : Germany's action in disbanding the einwohnerwehr will give great satisfaction to those Americans who never have been able to remember what it is but have felt in duty bound to back up the allied demand that it be disbanded. :o: YVlien manufactured products get on the same level of prices with raw materials the world will begin tr do business again. The sooner manufacturers, jobbers and retailer? take their loss and get it behind them the sooner we will have a busi ness revival. -:o: The packers assures as that even if their employees do g.j on a strike, it would not effect the nublic's sup ply of meat. Probably they are right about it. Meat that can stay so high for more than a year after the bottom dropped out of the live stock market should have nothing to fear from a mere strike in the pack ing house. :o: The Harding cabinet, as it stands is about the kind of cabinet that the Americaan people voted for in November. If they did not know they were voting for it. that is the result of their own folly. They did not need to be deceived, and if they were deceived they deceived them selves. -:or- Secretary Hughes probably told the bantam-weights. Costa Rica and Panama, that he'd bump their heads together and put them to bed with out any supper if they didn't stop their face-making and stone-throwing. It must be a tremendously sat isfying thing to know that no mat ter how mad or threatening you get there is always somebody right at hand to separate you and the one you are about to fight. :o: Representative of the Pacific Coast cities, in a hearing before the ship ping board, requested the assignment of a larger number of combination passenger and cargo vessels for the Oriental trade to meet keen competi tion from Japan and Canadian in terests. The injurious effect of pro hibition of American shipping was featured in the testimony. :o: Senator John Sharp Williams thinks it is the ambition of Harding to be a president after the McKinley type. It is an ambition that will never be realized. McKinley was not a man of great dreams, but he poss-essed much tact and diplomacy, and Harding is lacking these ele ments. Again McKinley had his party solidly behind hiui and Hard ing lias not. VETERANS OF WORLD WAR OUT OF WORK , Number American Legion Estimates at 400,000 Says Situation is Now Improving. New York, March 17. There were 400,000 veterans of the world war out of work in the United States on March 1, last, according to an estimate- received by the Ameri can Legion. This is a reduction of abouf 100.000 from the "peak" of more than 500,000 jobless ex-service men in .the country shortb after the 1st of January and the Legion state reports show there is promise of further improvement. The survey of the national situa tion on which these figures are based was made by the American Legion Weekly, official publication of the Legion, which states that the un employment situation as affecting the veterans "appears to have taken a turn for the better." A chain of employment agendo; operated by the Legion in every state has done much to relieve the situation, ' say the Legion officials. The Legion has been instrumental in obtaining employment for some of the jobless in the great industrial . centers but has encouraged a move-! ment from cities to the farms. It has demanded that porkers who left I their positions to go to war should' enjoy seniority rights on a par with those of military age who stayed at home. j Ex-Service Men Handicarmed 1 Ex-service men have suffered more in proportion to ineir numoers man other workers, according to the Legion's survey, because of the op eration of seniority rules and effici ency standards. Nearly a year is required for t lie returned veteran to 2-et back to his old stride in indus try, according to the testimony 01 large employers of labor. Another thing that has handicapped the ox ioldier is his restlessness and no madic tendencies, both products of the strain and circumstances of war service.

I observers in those parts to oeiievet the worst is past, according to the Legion's survey. The automobile ! centers of Detroit, i Ievelanu and in-; dianapolis report a slight improve ment of conditions. In Chicago con- i litions are stationary it is said. Movement Toward Farms Throughout the agricultural mid lie west a general movement from the cities and towns to the farms is reported. The average ex-soldier had little taste for agriculture when he carae back from the war. It was hard to keep them down on the farm after they had "seen Paree." They chose to work in the small fac tories or stores in the neighboring count v seat where, during 19iy. jons were nlentv an wages high. When tlioxe jobs began to go there was at j first an exodus toward the larger. cities. The Legion strove to dis-j courage tins. I nat movement nas about spent itself an farmers thru out the west now report little diffi- ulty in getting help, and except in the larger-cities there are few aole bodies ex-service men reported out of work in the middle west. The south reported improvement. Dixie has been burdened with a 1 larger quota of winter floaters than . usual this year. according to re-1 ports. Some are now finding work in the south. others are drifting north, largely to settle on farms.

Gov erns Loan Agreement. Washington. March 17. Recogni tion of the Obregon government in Mexico by France was reported as imminent" in advices from Paris received here today in official cir cles. Recognition bf Mexico by France would cause some surprise at the state department because of the in formal understanding that has ex isted for several years between the principal European governments and the United 'States that the rela tions of those governments with Mexico would be baaed largely upon the attitude assumed by the Ameri can government. One immediate effect of recogni tion by France might be, it was ex plained, the serious disturbance of the agreement entered into by the chief banking houses of the world not to loan money to Mexico unless such action were concurred in by all the banks party to the agreement. The report that France has pre pared a letter replying to that of President Obregon and that it is worded in such manner as to con stitute recognition is regarded as an indication that the French govern ment has decided not to adhere longer to the somewhat vague un derstanding.

PLATTSMOUTH SEMI-WEEKLY JOUHNAl OIL CONCESSIONS GAVE BRITAIN CANAL CHANCE Washington, March 17 The Costa Rican congress has repudiated large oil and other concessions granted in 'June, 191S, to Amory & Sons. through an agreement entered into , between the Costa Rican minister ol I foreign affairs and the British niin j ister, according to advices received 1 today by the state department. The concessions, consisting of 7,000 square miles of land, while os tensibly granted,to an American com pany, were largeyl controlled by Bri tish interests, including the son of the British premier, Lloyd George, ac cording to information at the state department. : The posiiton of the United Stateo , was that the agreement by granting : water rights along the Nicaraguan i boundary to British interests, would give the concsesionaire a foothold for the building of an inter-ocean canal. 1 The Costa Rican congress acted to repudiate the concession on March 7, the vote being 24 to 10. INCOME TAX RE TURNS ARE LOW Reports at Washington Indicate the Total will be About a Billion Less Than Last Year. Washington, March IS. The buyers' strike, the nationwide busi ness depression and reduced earn ings of workers and professional men in 1920 will cost approximately '$1,000,000,000 in reduced tax pay- . ments this year, it was indicated here today in early reports to the treasury from the first installment of the income and excess profits tax pavment of March 1. The reports indicate that the total collections this year from income and' excess profits tax will total about ; ?2. 500, 000. 000 when the last in-! stallment is paid December 15. Iast year the four installments yielded approximately ?:5.500.000.000. j Payments of the income and ex-' I ccs profits tax this month probably. 'will not run higher than $700,000,-' I 000. In March last year the total was jsis.SM.i.uuo. . . . . : n n The yield from practically all sources of revenue is tailing on. In the face of thepe falling re turns Secretary of the Treasury Mel lon must find means to pay rapidly increasing obligations of the govern- ! ment. Billions of the floating debt i.; maturing this year. In addition, the spring of 1923 will bring to ma turity approximately $7,500,000,000 orth of Victory notes and the war savings securities. Mellon is believed certain to recommend abolition of the excess profits tax. 4A CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK. Tom Cusick, the gonial Missouri Pacific brakeman. has a son Thomas i Jr.. in the U. S. Xavy who is one of I ncle Sam s fighters in every sen?e of the word. The Nebraska City Pr ss pays that he is the champion middle weight boxer of the American Navy, according to the claims of the men of the Pacific fleet. He is 17 yeirs old and weighs 152 pounds. Fourteen fights have been engaged in recently and he has won twelve of them. His last and most import ant battle was a scrap with the pugi listic champion of the Japanese Navy. Young Cusick won handily and his friends aboard the ship on whieh he is serving are willing to bet all their pay that the Nebraskan can uphold the dignity of the Amer ican Naw against all comers.
