LAW ARM LONG Informers A i d Treasury Department In Crusade Against Evaders WASHINGTON, June 25 — UP) — The treasury said today that a construction laborer won $200,000 gambling but lost trying to beat *ncle Sam out of income tax on 1 Aided by an informer, treasury agents driving against tax evasion o0t their man, gave him a $160, 000 bill for taxes, interest and penalties, and marked him down •or criminal prosecution, Secretary Snyder said. gnyder told reporters the man, whose identity was withheld, won the money in off-hour gambling over a four-year period while on "war work in an American ter ritory.” But he paid taxes only on his regular wages. The tipster who turned him in stands to get up to ten percent of the treasury’s final tax collec tion. Congress puts up $100,000 each year for awards to inform ers who furnish “specific informa tion or evidence, not mere sus picions." Moneywise, a bigger catch for the treasury was a convicted li quor blackmarketer. Snyder said this man gave the treasury $2, 500.000 in cash—the largest pay ment of the kind on record—for taxes lie tried to evade and pen alties on the evasion attempt. Snyder named the man as Rob ert Gould of Cincinnati and said he was sentenced in federal court there to six years in prison for liquor operations on a "nation wide scale’’ in violation of OPA regulations. Seven other cases in which the treasury has laid down over $8. 000,000 in extra-tax assessments'in rectnt weeks were cited by Sny der. Following is his account of some of them: “A physician in a northeastern city” who has agreed to pay $1, 650.000 in settlement of taxes evaded over a 15-year period in which he concealed income from "a tremendous medical practice.” “A midwestern beer distribu tor” who has been billed for $1, 290.000 for faxes due on black mar ket porfits. A brewery owner in a “north ern city” billed $300,000 for taxes cn black market profits. He went bankrupt in a legitimate business early in the war, but managed to buy up breweries with money tak en as advance payment for beer orders during the beer shortage of 1944. A “theater chain operating in the south” which evaded $650,000 In taxes by concealing profits from ice cream ,pop corn and other concessions. An “eastern man” who, posing a« s “tax expert,” prepared false refund claims for thousands of clients but tried to hide his con nection with the returns by sign ing them with “disappearing ink.” Sunnv South Colonists Slate Meeting Sunday CHADBOURN.

It operates along some of the same lines as are followed by the PTA, but Principal O. C. Bruton be lieves that it teats the PTA, at, least so far as his district is con- j cerned. Without a lumth room last sum mer, Mr. Bruton and a number of the patrons of the school get to gether. The upshot of the heart-to heart talk was that they organize^ the District Club to meet once each month the year-round. The PTA meets only during the months when the school is in session. The Bolivia District Club held its monthly meeting Tuesday night and Prof. Bruton and the patrons of the school went over a well ap pointed lunch room, where good lunches were served about 150 stu dents daily during most of the past session. All of its obligations for sinks, stoves, refrigerators and tableware are paid and it already has a fund of $100.00 towards fill ing the pantry and huge refrigera tor with supplies before next ses sion of the school starts. One of the important things about the District Club at Bolivia is that each member, and that in cludes about all of the patrons of the district, feel themselves per sonally responsible for the lunch room and the general welfare of the school. When the work on the lunch room started they had an old building, a relic of WPA days. It was built of solid juniper logs but was unsealed and unheated. The window and door arrange ments were poor. Lumber for most of the ceiling and other needs was donated. Pa trons who were handy with their tools chipped in with labor. Will ing hands made a quick job and the building was ready in short order. Other willing hands and heads had meanwhile been get PHARMACISTS ELECT LUMBERTON DRUGGIST CHAPEL HILL, June 25—(A*)— T. J.

The answer is a small hydraulic pump. It was conceived by pack aging industry designers.

It took a lot of money from a more or less rural community, but the money was raised and it is doubtful if any patron of the school lacks a feeling of pride in the ef forts and what they accomplished The coming session of the Boli via school will find the patrons standing by their school lunch room and everything else needed to make the school a success.

The motion was denied in Superior Court Monday afternoon by Judge Q. K. Nimmoks, Jr., presiding judge of the June term.
