Dock Swiss Chard and dandelion greens have Little waste it used promptly or washed and stored cold the heavy Midrib of Chard can be removed and used in place of asparagus. As that. But have you been Vou Sun Nort Reading the ads recently the main objective of advertising. Amp us Van. Of course is still Selling but ads today Are doing double duty. They re still Selling things but they re also Selling ideas. Since the War began for example ads have been Selling America to americans. Millions of americans have bought millions of shares of Stock in american in one War Bond drive after another. That was a Job that have been done without advertising. The War advertising Council in its report for 1943 reported advertising contributed to the promotion of War themes during the year totalled More than $300,000,000. There were ads for was and ads for Waves ads for fats and ads to save. Then when you buy a new car or an electric toaster or a Waffle Iron or some other Gadget your favorite dealer used to sell you ran across an and picturing a tank or a plane or a new radio device your old manufacturer was turning out and you Felt better about it. Yes during �?~42 and 43, advertising went to War in a big Way with results that May shorten the conflict by Many Long months. But watch for a new turn in and copy in the new year 44 for in the midst of War America must prepare Foi peace and a return to peace time production and employment. Smart manufacturers who Haven to had much to sell for some time now except to Uncle Sam will their names Back before their old patrons talking about their Post War models even if they re still in blueprints. And private business knowing the big Job it has to these Are the taxes for which an annual income tax Quot return must be filed on or before March 15, 1944. The requirement for filing these returns has not been altered by the a pay As you go collection system which was installed last year. Under the pay As you go system part or All of an individuals income taxes both regular income and Victory taxes was withheld from his wages during 1943 and turned Over to the Treasury by employers. In the Case of individuals who were not kept substantially paid up by the wage withholding additional payments were required on the basis of a a declarations of estimated tax. However since both of these types of ret of l most tax political Parade by Clem Whitaker president Roosevelt a re election or defeat assuming that he seeks a fourth term May hinge More on his handling of major Domestic issues particularly the gathering labor crisis than on the conduct of patrons building Goodwill the War or on our military position and Confidence in tomorrows America. Advertising has a at election time. New Job to do do to reconvert its plants and help America Over the Hump of Post War reconstruction will be talking through ads to its stockholders and workers and decide was tripe Grade Labelling comes to literature a now As com to this that tile Bright Young men and the party Hacks in Washington having invaded every other Field from the baby s formula to the number of coughs in each Brand of cigarettes Are to decide in their great Wisdom what constitutes a a literature and a a arts b c that at any rate is the dire picture conjured up by the strikes and action of postmaster general Frank Walker in ruling that the writings in Esquire Magazine Are not literature and that its pictures Alen t crts and that therefore it Isnit entitled to the same postal rates enjoyed by other popular magazines. For or. Walker who also happens to he the democratic party chief of staff did t ban Esquire on the ground that its copy offended Public morals but on he amazing ground that what it printed lacked literary Merit. There May be Many who will agree with or. Walker that Esquire is lacking in literary distinction but heretofore of course the american people have been free to what was literature and what Wasny to. And what for some proved Good entertainment for others. We have had no a command performances in Washington no Board of literature to Tell us what was Good and what was bad or what was indifferent. We decided that for ourselves. But now if postmaster walkers dictum May be taken As a criterion Grade Labelling has come to literature. And May the gods preserve us from what seems to be in store for us. Prohibition again a a wets and a a Drys Are Manning their guns again and jaded Washington always in search of new excitement is in a greater dither Over congressional hearings on a Bill to bring Back prohibition. There Are the usual arguments Over monday morning hangovers in War plants versus personal liberties it Cetera and heated exchanges Between spokesmen for the liquor Industry and the anti Saloon league. We will not venture to guess what will come out of it. Other than congressional oratory but we would risk this prediction that if we get War time prohibition again the profiteers and buccaneers in the liquor Industry will be responsible for it rather than the crusading dry Law organizations. Gyp joints peddling watered drinks and Black Market operators Selling $2 whisky at from $6 to $10 a bottle have probably done More to agitate the country than monday morning absenteeism in War plants. We dont think the a a Drys Are Strong enough to bring Hack prohibition but we re not so sure about the a a wets taxes after the War i he problem of postwar business taxation cannot longer be ignored a f in. It involves the jobs Standard of living even the Freedom of the people. That it has been almost wholly ignored to Date is attributed to the common Assumption clearly stated by Harley l. Lutz professor of finance. Of Princeton i University. A that business can and will continue to Supply the goods and services upon which All schemes for the Good life depend regardless of the drag and Drain of excessive such an Assumption has been encouraged by the ability to Industry to produce during the War notwithstanding a confiscatory tax Load. People Are prone to forget that the businessman is first and Foremost a Patriot. For the duration the incentive of patriotism has in most cases replaced be incentive of profit As a production stimulant. After the &, businessmen cannot be expected to act any differently than other groups. The nations productive Talent will work i est if it sees a Hope of fair Reward. \ ice president Wallace fully realized this when he was moved to remark recently that a your whole tax Structure including individual income capital gains and corporate taxes will need revamping to stimulate lion and employment a maximum product this admittedly runs counter to i the current views of both democratic and Republic strategists but there Are explosive factors in the National situation which Are Likely to upset the Best Laid plans of party High commands. It is no longer Correct for example. To refer to the epidemic of work stoppages now sweeping the country As labor management disputes. In most instances they Are actually labor gov eminent disputes with labor leaders locked in bitter conflict with their one time friends and allies in the Roosevelt administration thus far while there has been off the record criticism of the president most of the labor chieftains in their Public statements have aimed their barbs at sub Ordi i Nate new Deal officials rather than or. Roosevelt. The president in turn when government agencies have locked horns with the unions has usually escaped a showdown by taking Over and granting substantially All that labor demanded. There is growing Public Discon \ tent however sharply magnified by the resentment of men and women j in the armed forces Over this policy i of labor App ascent and an increasing tendency on the part of the voters to blame government even More than they blame labor for such occurrences As the Coal strike and the threatened nation 1 wide rail tie up. And there is every likelihood that the president must soon take his stand and take it firmly and publicly. If he demands that the unions Retreat from their present militant position that they forego inflationary wage increases and that they abide by their a no strike pledge or. Roosevelt May win a new measure of Public Confidence but he will undoubtedly come to the parting of the ways with Many of the labor i leaders who have been his staunch est allies in past campaigns. On the other hand if he yields to labors demands for sweeping pay j i hikes and gives tile rail unions h r example All that they asked at the 1 time of their strike threat the president must kick overboard All or tense of maintaining his hold i the line program and will doubtless precipitate a new Avalanche it wage demand.-, All Over the country with the result that he will suffer a serious loss of Public Confidence faced with similar problems in i the past or. Roosevelt has either j found a Way out by Compromise 1 or has openly taken his stand with labor confident that labor support would pull him through. But this time there is every indication that the situation has drifted too Long to permit 02 Compromise and there is the added Factor that the general Public May be so unsympathetic with labor s demands and so irritated by work stoppages that the president would lose More than he would gain by a policy of labor App casement one of our largest and most collections of.
