You Will Pay

And Pay and Pay
By WM. GRIFFIS
When the tax collector gets
through with you this year, you'll
learn that in addition to paying a
federal social security tax of tw<
per cent onthe earning's of eaci
employee, ypu must pay $2 per an
num to the state for each employee
in excess of one, as an extra oc.
cupational tax. Where there are
three or more employed, you must
insure them against accident and
injuries. If eight or more are em-
ployed, you pay an unemployment
compensation tax.
Practically every kind of busit
ness using the mails comes under
the federal wage andi hour act. It
it's a corporation there is a state
corporation and federal corpora-
tion tax to be paid, even if your
business operates at a loss. If it
operates at a profit, then there is
income tax. When you are thru
with that, if you have paid your
ad valoerm taxes, special district
taxes, and, license taxes, you may
pay an excess profits tax.,
If you have anything left you
will pay the state $16.25 for license
plate and driver's license on a
light car, and Uncle Sam gets not
a $5 use tax, but $7.09 on the
-ame auto. If you have any money
left, you buy gasoline, not at 7
cents per gallon tax, but a total
of 81/ cents per gallon for thN
state and federal gas taxes.
If you've still got a dollar left
rou can give it to the Redl Cross
and ask the Community Chest to
provide you with food, fuel, cloth.
ng and shelter, as. you are dis-
quafified to work on the WPA, or
perhaps you can join the CIO and
;et strike benefits, on which there
.re no taxes. Possibly the Railroad
3rotherhoods will take you in at
9 per day and let you strike for
0 per cent more, and retire you
ater on a railroad retirement pen-
ion a.t half pay.
Living expenses have increased
6 per cent; cost of dying is too
igh, and only John L. Lewis suc-
cssfully defies the government

Local Grid Team Remains Untied
And Undefeated; Should Give
Them Chance at State Honors

Closing their 10-game football
season last Friday1 by defeating
the Blountstown Tigers by a score
of 33 to 12, the St. Joe Sharks
proved themselves the undisputed
six-man football champions of this
section and are now in line to
meet the winning team from South
or Central Florida.
The Blountstown grid team had
the local lads. worried, as propa-
ganda stories had been -trickling
in that the Tigers had greatly im-
proved since their 8 to 6 defeat
here October 24, and a loss would
have tied the Sharks for honors
with Crawfordville. However, the
St. Joe gridimen pitched in whole-
heartedly and gave the Tigers a
worse drubbing than they received
in the first tilt. The only casualty
of the feud was a broken nos0
received, by Gordon Farris, and he
considers- that well worth the
candle.
As a reward for their undefeated
season, the entire Shark squad
was taken to the Florida-Georgia
Tech football game held Saturday
in Gainesville.
During the season the Sharks
chalked up 333 points to their op-
posnents' 56,, all games .tini, won
by top-heavy scores, with the ex--
