To Be Emphasized
The following letter has been
mailed from the County Y. M. C.
A. office to the school principals
of the county ,
"Because of the large percentage
of rejections due to the physical con
dition of men examined tor the
army and navy durrng the world
war, the government has ordered
printed a set of "Keep Fit" charts
and has asked the representatives
of the local Y. M. C. A. organizations
to exhibit them to the boys In
the upper grades of every school
under the United States Flag.
"A set of these charts are now
in the possession of the county Y.
M. C. A. committee. Would you care
to have the undersigned visit your
school and show them to the boys
of the 6th, 7th and 8th grades?
"Signed NEIL LOCKE,
Dr. A. H. Waterhouse, chairman
of the county committee Bays "This
movement on the part of the health
department of the federal govern
ment Is most timely and important.
Any person who had any conncetion
with the service si acquainted with
the examination of candidates,
surprisingly large per cent of men
who were entirely rejected, or ad
mitted for limited service, 80 per
cent due to mechanical difficulties,
such as decayed teeth, tonsils, ade
noids, flat feet etc which could have
been remedied or removed during
the earlier years of life. It Is est!
mated by medical authorities that in
the year 1914, $675,000,00 was spent
on sickness that was preventable.
Due to Better Baby movement the
lives of more babies are being sav
ed, but an intersting corallary is
that the people of maturel lfe are
suffering more than they ever did.
Investigators claim that 60 per cent
of the school children of our pub
lic schools are remedial defects. These
conditions are due to several causes
among them being:
1. Failure to remove remedial de
fects in childhood.
2. Failure to provide big muscle
3. Failure to provide proper en
4. Lack of utilization of the group
or mass schemes in play and athlet
6. Failure to see God's law operate
Probably the most striking illus
tration of the importance to the in
dividual of this Idea of keeping fit
is shown in the reports of the war
department regarding "causes of avi
ation deaths In France:"
Two per cent were killed by the
Eight per cent due to defective
Ninety per cent to personal causes
Y. M. C. A. representatives are
glad to have the privilege of present
ing these charts In the schools. It
is in line with the fundamental
principals of the Y. M. C. A. that
clean strong body is - essential to
the best all around development. The
fact that the government is asking
that the exhibit be made In the
schools, is significant, and also in
accord with association ideas. Health
habits as well as others must begin
during the formative years of a
boy's life and physical defects must
be remedied at this time if the
individual is to avoid the inevitable
results in later years."
INCOME TAX PACTS
Changes In the revenue law are
of material benefit to the averace
family man. Under the revenue act
of 1921 a married person, living with
wife or husband, whose net income
for 1921 was $5,000 or less, is allow
ed a personal exemption of $2,500.
Under the revenue act of 1918. the
exemption allowed a married uersnn
was $2000, regardless of the am
ount of net Income.
The normal tax rate is the same.
four percent on the first $4-000 of
net income above the exemntions.
and 8 per cent on the remaining
net income. Given his personal ex
emption of $2 500 plus $400 for each
dependent, a married man with three
children the average American fam
uy will pay thh year on a net in
come of $4,000 a tax of $1Z. On th)
same Income for 1921 he would havr
paid $56. ;
Every cIUzpii and resident of ihe
United States must determine for
himself whether his income for 1921
was sufficient to require that a re
turn be filed. Full instructions for
making out a return are contain.
ed on the forms, a copy of wh'ch
will be sent to tax payers who f ilnd
a return last year. Failure to receive
a return, however, does not relieve
a taxpayer of his obligation to file
a return on time, on or before March
15, 1922. Forms may be obtained
from collectors of Internal revenue
and branch offices.
