Citizens With Small Incomes
Will Not Share Proposed
By United Pres*
• RAPID CITY, S. D., July 28.
President Coolidge has evolved the
administration’s tax reduction pro
gram since he has been in the Black
Hills and decided that it will be
built around reduction in corpora
tion taxes.
Every business house which has
failed to receive a reduction in the
recent tax revision bills will benefit
by the administration project.
It is Mr. Coolidge’s plan, accord
ing to indisputable authority, to rec
ommend to the next session of Con
gress a plan whereby corporations
will be granted a reduction from
1314 per cent to at least 11 per cent.
Works Through Committee
While Mr. Coolidge desires to
place himself in position so that he
may not be accused of writing the
new tax bill, he has definite ideas
upon the subject which will be in
corporated in a bill soon to be sub
mitted to Congress through House
Ways and Means Committee.
His recommendations will not in
clude any reduction for smaller in
come tax payers, but will center
itself about a program for allevia
tion of stringent levies upon all
It is estimated that reduction in
the corporation tax from 1314 to 11
per cent would result in a. decrease
in the nation’s tax receipts of at
least $1,500,000 annually.
“Small Fry” Excluded
According to word received here,
Democratic leaders who control a
theoretical majority in the next
Senate, will agree to the project of
reducing corporation taxes, but will
fight for bill reducing the levy on
small incomes Mr. Coolidge believes
that assessments on incomes of less
than SIO,OOO have been cut suffi
ciently already. He thinks, accord
ing to White House authorities, that
no more slashes should be made to
eliminate small tax payers.
Mn Coolidge believes that reduc
tions also should be made in nuis
ance taxes, possibly eliminating
levies on theater admissions and
club dues. Automobile taxes should
be cut from 314 per cent .possibly to
2 per cent, according to presidential
$300,000,000 Cut Possible
If this plan was carried out, Con
gress could afford a special tax re
duction of more than $300,000,000
without endangering, in Mr. Cool
idge’s estimation, resources of the
No “Mellon plan” will be sug
gested to Congress this year and no
formal presentation of the admin
istration program may be ex
pected. However, Mr. Coolidge’s
ideas probably will be impressed
upon House Ways and Means Com
mittee when it meets to frame the
tax reduction bill.
Rabbits Also Numerous in
State This Season.
Reports to the offices of the con
servation department indicate an
unusually large number of quail and
rabbits in Indiana this season.
Motorists driving Hoosier high
ways say that at night some traffic !
lanes literally are alive with young !
Virtually every section where quail
customarily are found reports many
In late years land owners have
learned that it is not the legal
hunting which decimates the quail,
but rather the cold icy winters when
shelter and food are problems.
Many land owners provide sanctuary
by leaving brush pilts in fence cor-,
ners, and see that the birds are fed
and watered.

New York Invented
the Ice Cream Soda
Dumped Everything in Store
Into Glass and Made
Tasty Concoction.
NEA Service Writer
NEW YORK, July 28.—John Rob
ertson and Francis Tietz were born
fifty years too early. They in
vented a popular temperance drink
in a day when the world generally
did not appreciate a temperance
drink. They are the fathers of ice
cream soda.
Had their creative genius flowered
later, ice cream soda might have
made them millions. As it was, it
didn’t even bring them free drinks
—or fame.
Back in 1872, Robertson and Tietz
wer:- pals.
“One rainy day,” Robertson re
callled, “we went into Kline’s con
fectionery store in New York/' We
had at least 50 cents with us,
enough to buy out the store, and we
ordered everything the place of
fered, all at one time.
They Tried Mixing
. “We found that if y.ou dumped
the ice cream into a glass of soda,
and added a few strawberries or
some pineapple, you had something
that was infinitely superior to any
ingredient taken separately.
“After that we always ordered
fruits, ice cream, soda v/ater, or
ginger ale, then mixed our own at
the table.
“What we considered the triumph
|of our combined intelligence was
' made by putting a chunk of ice
! cream in a half cup of strong, cold
coffee, adding chopped cherries,
pineapple and dry ginger ale to
fill up the cup, with a dash of cin
namon on top.
Tastes It Yet
“I can still taste that one, though
I havejta’t tasted an ice cream soda
for years.” ,
Obviously the boys did not hide
their light under a bushel. In no

“Kline got the best trade in New
York through his ice cream sodas.
Eventually he was rich enough to
retire,” Robertson went on. “The
aristocrats from Washington Square
and Lower Fifth Avenue would send
their footmen over for sodas' and
the most imposing horses and car
riages of the city would be hitched
outside Kline’s door.”
Outgrew Soda Habit
Robertson and Tietz grew older
and outgrew their passion for icc
cream sodas.
Tietz went into business and Rob
ertson in time became manager of
Dcrlon’s famous old restaurant.
“I think my part in the ice cream
soda was my only contribution to
the field of invention,” Tietz smiled.
“I forgot all about it in later years.
“We moved to Brooklyn after
wards, and I lost track of Robertson.
I haven’t seen him in—it must be
thirty years. I’d love to seem him
Like Robertson, Tietz doesn’t
drink ice cream sodas any longer.

Plea Made in Men’s Behalf
After Girl Testifies at
B<i Time* Special
SHELBYVILLE. Ind., July 28.
Flaming youth’s wildness in these
days of hip flasks and petting
parties forms the basis of the de
fense theory in the case of five
young men accused of ah attack on
a 17-year-old girl.
Raymond Dehoe, one of the five,
is on trial in the Shelby Circuit
Court, the defense having elected
for separate trials. Others facing
charges preferred by Miss Josephine
Cord, farm girl, are Theodore Seitz,
Raymond Muir. Edward Hungate
and Robert Kettler.
State testimony will probably
be concluded todqy. Attorney Lee
Tremain, Greensburg, in his opening
statement in Dehoe’s behalf de
clared he woulc\ show all that tran
spired during a trip of the girl and
five men in an auto was done with
her consent, asserting the affair was
a result of today’s social conditions.
The accusing girl spent three
hours on the witness stand Wednes
day, denying she was a willing com
panion of the five men on the auto
trip July 5. The defense on cross-
I examination failed to shake her
! story.
So great is the publi’s interest in
the trial that many spectators bring
lunch to the Courthouse to hold
V>eats. as only enough persons, to take
all seats are permitted in the room.
