mans and the Japanese."
Although the Japanese have had
their food rationed since 1940, ex-
perts do not believe food shortage
is as likely to be a strategic weak-
ness as might a shortage of some
war materials. Japan raises 80
per cent of her rice, and rice sup-
lies fully half of the calorific in-
take of the, Japs,. Beans and fish
are the other main articles of Jap-
i. anese diet. Manchuria supplies 41
to 45 million bushels of soya beans
and from soya beans the Japanese
people get their proteins and vege,
table oils. The war is estimated
to have, cut her fish consumption
Sby 25 per cent.
e The. Japanese are basing their
hopes on, the possibility that the
Allies wlll grow tired and accept
a negotiated peace. Japanese lead-
ers have repeatedly predly icted that
Japan will drag out the war so
long and make the Allies pay so
dearly, that the "soft" democracies
will be forced into a stalemate.

Thirty Million Persons Will Use
Approximately thirty million
employes will be reliev-ed of the
work of computing their 194A In.
come tax by using "withholding
receipts." for their returns, ac-
cording to the bureau of internal
revenue. Under thel new arrange-
ments, the work of filling out the
withholding receipt; from which
the tax is computed; ought to
consume no more than five min-
ute.s. Fast writers ought to. 'be
able fo cut this time in half.
A withholding receipt, showing
total wages paid and, total income,
tax withheld, during the year, is
required by law to be furnished
by each employer to each of his
employes on or before January 31.
The form of the withholding re-
ceipt has been revised to include
the necessary questions and in-
structions that will permit most
employes to use it:as a return,
This form of return, may be used
by anyone whose total income In
1944 was less than $5000 in wages
and not more than $100 in other*
forms, such as dividends and in-
terest. A taxpayer using his with-
holding receipt for his return will
fill it in and mail it to his local
collector of internal revenue bY
'Machd 15, 1945,iTh?'yollector will
figure his tax, give him credit for
the tax already paid, and send
him either a bill or a refund for
A special feature of the new
form solves the problem of many
husbands and wives as to whether
to file separate or Joint returns.
If the combined income of'a hUs-
band and wife permits use of the
new. form they may combine their
returns on one receipt, and the
collector will figure their tax on
either their combined or separate
incomes, whichever is to their ad-
The tax 'on this form will be
figured by the collector from a;
table that automatically allows
about 10 per cent of the employee's
total income for charitable contri-
butions, interest, taxes, medical?
expenses, etc. Therefore, employee
should not list deductions for such
expenses on their withholding re-
ceipt. However, an employee. whose
expenses for these purposes exO
ceeded 10 per cent of his total in-
come may claim his deductions In
The new form is printed in trip-
licate. The employer gives the
employee the first two copies and
sends the third to the office of the
collector in that districL The firsa
copy, marked "Original," may be
filled out by the employee anlT
mailed in as his return. The sec-

WHICH IS MOST DANGEROUS?
The little steel formula has been broken.
The punch-drunk experts are muttering "Here
we go again," while the OPA has announced
an all-embracing price control program to go
into effect after Germany falls, when recon-
Out of this comic opera of men against na-
ture, the ordinary citizen, whose activities
are already slowed to a crawl in a tangle of
regulation, is faced with the appalling pros-
pect of having to make the readjustment to
peace under the handicap of even more reg-
ulation. Instead of getting simpler as the
war crisis subsides, the rules are getting in-
creasingly complicated. The OPA admits
that price ceilings in regard to products
which reappear in the market as the result
of gradual reconversion, will have to vary
from industry to industry, in some cases from
company to company. There may be 100 dif-
ferent ceiling prices for the same item pro-
duced by 100 different firms. According to
OPA, the nightmare of regulation is to be
continued until "there is no longer any dan-
ger of inflationary price increases."
With wages on the verge of another up-
ward spiral, thus again putting the squeeze
on farm producers, manufacturers and retail
distributors,, it will probably be a long time
before the "danger" of inflation is over.
Eventually the people may have to choose be-

Our Country Right or Wrong
tween the danger of inflation and the danger
.of too much government control.
ARE WE VINDICTIVE?
Like most people, we have always thought
we were of a forgiving nature, and we have
often been told that we stick our neck out
too far in our efforts to help the underdog,
and we honestly do not believe that anyone
who knows us would accuse us of being
vengeful or at least cruel.
However, when we read of how much
American food it is going to take to feed the
Italians, how we must carry them until they
get back on their feet, etc., our temperature
begins to rise and we wonder if America is
made up of a 'bunch of saps.
It is not our fault Italy is in a jam. We
did not make her attack Ethopia. It is not
our fault she sent her armies into Spain to
keep a liberty-seeking people from govern-
ing themselves. It is not our fault she stabbed
France in the back. It is not our fault she
took up with Hitler and got the worst of it.
Our soldiers died by the thousands to free
her from the Nazi yoke and on top of that
we have people here who think we should
take care of her the rest of her life, or at
least until she gets strong enough to swing
a knife at our back as she did France, and
even her Fascist chum, the Nazis.
Italy is fortunate if we give her back her
country after driving the Germans out. She
should be satisfied with a chance to work out
her own salvation, and without the assistance
of a country she tried to destroy.
We never heard of Italy feeding the Eth-
opians after she conquered them. It is easy
to say that it was Il Duce who did that, not
the Italian people, but we never heard of oli
stumble bum Mussie getting in where there
was any fighting, even against savages armed
with muzzle loaders and spears. Somebody
killed those people and wrecked their coun-
try, and Italy never denied it while it was

Here's How Florida National Group Banks
Participate in City-County Financing
AS every taxpayer knows sorrowfully, it takes money to
run Florida's cities, towns and counties, to build roads
',and streets, and to operate schools.
Where does this money come from? .Taxes? Yes-
finally. Btt when expensive public improvements have to
be made, it is rarely feasible to raise the sum immediately
needed by immediate taxes. So the political sub-division
planning the improvements issues bonds which are simply
long-term promises to pay, secured by taxes. Then it looks
around for customers.
Somebody has to buy these bonds to provide cash for
the work. The' 15 banks of the Florida National Group
have been among the best customers of Florida's cities,
towns and counties.
Today, the 15 member banks of the Florida National
Group own $19,505,575 in bonds issued by 34 different
Florida counties and dozens of communities and special
While we bought these bonds because we believed
them to be good investments, we take pride, nevertheless,'
in the knowledge that we have placed over $19,500,000
at the disposal of Florida communities for improvements
that contribute to Florida's progress and make our state
a better place in which to live. -
