The man notified the police. They rushed to his home and found his wife gone. The bank supplied the mon- ey, and the teller took it to the chalk pit.

By Anderson Leeming U.S. Media Wins Praise OnWatergate XUKICII (Ul'I) The American press by ils role in Watergate this year showed the world a democracy con- scious of its values and ready to defend them, Ernest Meyer, director of the International Press Institute, said in a re- port made public Friday. Meyer, a Swiss citizen, praised information media In the U.S. lor upholding their rights in a year in which free- dom of the press was endan- gered, attacked or non-exis- tent in other parts of the world. In the Free World the press faced economic dangers which led to worrisome concentra- tions or closures, Meyer said. Third World Attacks "In most countries of the Third World in Africa, Asia and Latin America the main worry is still the bring- ing-to-hecl of newspapers and broadcasting systems and the increasing number of increas- ingly brutal attacks on the freedom of he said. In Communist countries, Meyer said, total censorship remained. The IPI, an association of publishers and editors from non-Communist countries around the world, issues an annual report on the state of press freedom. "Watchdog" Meyer said: "Watergate, with all the cri- tical currents surrounding it, and the reactions to President Ford's pardon decision have once again given the American press the opportunity to demonstrate its role of watch- dog. "Looking back on the atti- tude of the media as a whole when faced with a vindictive and unscrupulous administra- tion, and also allowing for cer- tain exaggeration in the scur- ry of fighting, we have to state once more that the American press as a whole, and broad- casting to a large degree, showed the world a democracy conscious of ils values and ready to defend them. "In this affair the contribu- tion of the American press in this worldwide fight for press freedom was an example to record in the annals of prog- ress in iai'4."

Tax Man Keeps Eye On Quiz Show Winners WASHINGTON (AP) _ Among viewers of television quiz shows these days may be an Internal Revenue Service agent. The IRS agents' interest is not in entertainment, but to make sure the government gets its tax share of the prizes. When it comes time for the quiz show winner to pay taxes, the IRS may check to make sure that the winnings were declared. If not, the taxpayer may be invited in to talk about it. The IRS isn't Interested in just money prizes. It expects taxpayers to declare as income the value of any merchandise prizes, such as an automobile or refrigerator. New Popularity The growing number of of- ficial stale lotteries and the new popularity of television quiz shows lias prompted queries to the IRS about how prize winnings should be handled. Money won as a prize is treated the same as any other income for tax purposes. For example, a person with gross income and three dependents and who claims the standard deduction on a joint tax return would end up paying a tax of on a prize. The tax on the first on income would amount to The prize would be treated as additional income, increasing the tax due to IRS spokesmen say a person winning a big onc-limo prize might get some tax break by averaging out the winnings over a period of several years, a procedure called tax-averag- ing. "It Has Ways" The IRS doesn't usually check up on small amounts, but it has ways of being in- formed about the larger prizes, especially those of or over. For one thing, lotteries, race tracks and quiz show sponsors are required to report to the IRS prizes of or more. These reports then can be checked against the winner's tax return. In addition, it is not uncom- mon for IRS agents to monitor quiz shows and clip newspaper accounts of lottery and other prize winners, although agents arc not regularly assigned to such monitoring activities. Tax returns of professional gamblers also may be subject- ed to special scrutiny, anp IRS spokesman said. Tax returns tor 1974 went In the mall immediately after Christmas. The IRS estimates about 83 million returns will be filed for 1974, compared with 81 million last year. Technically, taxpayers should declare as Income all prize or gambling income, even a office football pool or money won in a weekend poker game, regardless of whether it was legally ob- tained. Education Chief: KEN1LWORTH, N. J. (UPI) For 37 years, Arthur Saha has dreamed of different worlds and envisioned better futures. He is one of a small group of science fiction buffs which call themselves "first fan- doms." They are an informal group of 250 who qualify for mem- bership because they have been reading, collecting and thinking about the possibili- ties for mankind beyond the planet earth since 1938. "I think it is my way of seeing the world and all its says Saha, whose suburban home in Kenilworth houses around science fiction publications, many of them collectors' items. Saha, president of the New York Science Fiction Club is an expert on science fiction. His collection is known throughout the coun- try and he frequents gather- ings of other science fiction fans all over the world. As a youth growing up in northern Minnesota, Saha says, he was one of only a small group of teenagers who shared their fantasies and in- terests by corresponding and developedlasting friendships. "People thought we were out of our heads and worlds. But many of the things we be- lieved in television, rockets, jet planes have come says Saha. "We have visions and dreams about what tomor- row will bring and that's what keeps us going." Today, science fiction fans meet for regional conventions and a yearly world convention, which will be held next year in Melbourne, Australia. "We have our own lingo, language and certain acro- nyms and allusions that only fans can he says. Science fiction, Saha says, examines all futures and even has room for optimism. "My greatest joy is reading those upbeat stories that man- kind Is says Sa- ha. "I also really like those stories which discuss the so- ciological impacts of the fu- ture on emotions and feel- ings." And science fiction has transcended the generation gap. "I am equally at ease talk- ing about science fiction with a 15-year-old boy and a 75- year-old says the 51- year-old research chemist, whose interest in science fic- tion led him to study science. Currently, science fiction is experiencing a renaissance, Saha says. It's become popu- lar especially with the young who are interested in explor- ing alternative ways of looking at the world. "It's something we started to love as children when it gave us a beautiful, glowy way of looking at says Saha. "It was great especially when things were bad during the Depression." Saha says science fiction has accurately predicted the development or invention of many things people today lake for granted. But. first and foremost, it is fiction. "It is not intended and we don't believe it to be true. It is an examination of what may he says. "The world of imaginative literature en- compasses everything." Union, Company Save Paper Plant Child's Learning Home Vital in NIAGARA, WIs. (AP) Three years after the paper mill that employs 650 residents of Ihis northern Wisconsin communily was to be closed, its employes split a prc- Christmas plum, in profit-sharing funds. The bonuses represent about three weeks' pay for workers at the Niagara of Wisconsin Paper Corp. mill and mark a climb upward for the com- munity and the employes. Kimberly-Clark Corp., which had owned the mill since 1898, announced three years ago that it was seeking to sell Ihc operalion "lo improve Hie company's fulure profi- tability." The news hit hard in this community of on the Menomincc river and in nearby Upper Michigan, where most of the firm's employes live. The mill was the area's major industry. Pollution Problems Kimberly-Clark said it want- ed out because the publica- tion-grade paper market was down and il had pollution-con- trol problems with the state. The company said if it couldn't sell, it planned to shut down the plant. Pentair Industries of Min- neapolis purchased the property after Local 205 of the Pulp, Sulphite and Paper Mill Workers, which represents 550 production workers, agreed to a new three-year contract thai excluded pay increases. One provision of the agreement called for the crea- tion of ii profit-sharing this year. And just ill time for Clirislmas, 197-1, the mill workers took home their rewards. "We've seen a lot of people rally around a mutual goal which has resulted in increased production and said William Beer- man, executive vice-president and general manager of Niagara of Wisconsin. "Everybody knows if they produce they will share the profits." Business Honesty Martin Ponzio, president of the union, said the experiment "shows you can still believe in people and that there is still honesty in business. "I had my doubls when we signed our conlract with Pen- tair. But just about everything they told us then has hap- pened." There was also some outside help. The stale agreed lo delay pollution abatement orders two years and seek a corporate tax break, which was passed by the 1973 legislature. Pentair in- stalled a million pollution abatement facility this year. The market for the mill's coated papers, used for magazines and catalogs, also improved, pushing Pentair's net income from in 1971 to million for 1973. The firm estimates that 85 percent of its profits were created by the paper mill. Although the contract which expires next April did not call for any pay increases, Pentair volunteered two 23-ccnt-an- hoiir raises, one in September, 1973, and another last May, said. He said the average produc- tion wage is now about per hour. The firm also voluntarily began contributing per month per employe lo a union pi'iiMnn plan, lie said. SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) It's too late to teach children to be smart when they get to school, U.S. Education Com- missioner T. H. Bell says. In an speech at Westminster college, the former Utah school superintendent said the research showed the capacity to learn quickly and with ease could be significantly expand- ed beyond thai inheriled al birth. But a child's basic in- telligence has been just about formed by the time he reaches school age, Bell told a 100th anniversary convocation. "Think of the re-education that teachers and teacher- educators need before they can communicate to parents the need to start teaching their newborn infants and continue teaching them during those first few years of he said. He described the research findings as "possibly one of the most important discoveries of the 20th Century in educa- tion." Services Monday for Matha L.
