UNCLE SAM FILES LIEN
AGAINST 64GS OF
New York (CNS)—The Bureau
of Internal Revenue boys stepped
in immediately against Archie
Moore’s purse which should reach
the magnificent total of $230,000
after TV receipts are counted in.
Uncle Sam wants $64,000 of the
total right away.
As Truman Gibson explained
it—he’s Secretary for Interna
tional Boxing Club—Archie has
$4,000 due now for ’54 income.
The other $60,000 is due as an
“anticipatory tax”—that is based
on Moore’s ’55 earnings against
Nino Valdes, Bobo Olson and
Marciano. Moore expects to
settle up right away through his
attorney, Mike Di Salle, former
chief of the Office of Price Ad
Meanwhile, he has plenty of
loot left with his 20 per cent
share of the actual gate at
Yankee Stadium at $170,498. Thej
TV receipts are expected to total
$60,000 for Archie that is.

In '75 On
A new film, showing what'
America will be like in 1975, is
being made available now to local
clubs and organizations by the
Omaha Chamber of Commerce,
General manager 0. W. Roberts
He said the Chamber of Com
merce of the United States asked;
leading business and trade associ-1
ations for their ideas and opin-'
ions of future developments and
products in their industries. The
result -a composite picture of
America 20 years hence — pre

j “Everything seen in this film*.”
i Mr. Roberts said, “is well within
1 the realm of possibility. American
I industry has presented very reas
onable ideas of what we can ex
i pect, and without daydreaming.
In fact, many of those things are
j already on the drawing board.
The picture was shown for the
first time at the national meeting
of the U. S. Chamber in Washing
ton last spring, and was hailed
by the country’s business leaders
as a most accurate forecast of
the future. ,
, Mr. Roberts said Omaha clubs
j and organizations could make
arrangements to schedule the
film-a 16 mm, colored print, 28
minutes long-at their meetings
by calling the iChamber offices,
