According to the estimates of the commission the War Garden crop was Worth $435,-000,000. There was an increase of 51 percent Over that of 1917. The commission s Survey showed that 5,285,000 Home food producing plots were planted. With Twenty six working Days in each of the seven a months you have 182 extra hours of time. It Only one Gardner worked this extra hour of time in each plot it will be seen that 961,879,000 hours of time would be added to the country s wealth.

Anarch 15th last Day for income tax there will be no general Extension of time beyond March 15th for the filing of returns and for the payment of income and excess profits taxes due on that Date is the decision of Dan a c.

The announcement made monday by collector Isaac immediately following the approval by the Senate and h ouse of the report of the conferees on the new Revenue Bill. Quot it is necessary to get the initial tax payments in by March 15th,&Quot says commissioner Roper. Quot no other course is possible. Some months ago the Treasury issued certificates of indebtedness to an amount approximating $80,0000,000, maturing March 15th.
