KE. 6021 "Big Brail" Will Tax Relmn In The “production line” has hit the income tax paying business. It will be but a matter of seconds when the citizens with incomes under $7000 step up to make their annual settlement with Uncle Sam. Bureau employees call this new piece of machinery the “Big Brain” and such it is. This new calculator can compute the tax form’s accuracy or inaccur acy in one-seventieth of a second flat. Thomas M. Carey, collector in 22 northeastern Ohio counties for the Bureau of Internal Revenue, will use the amazing machines for the first time on returns filed after Jan. 1. The machine adds, subtracts, di vides and multiplies with electronic speed. It even has a “memory,” which holds figures until the ma chine has later use for them. One of the devices has been in stalled and in a recent run worked “perfectly,” according to those who watched. Fifteen of the “Big Brains” three for each office will be ready for use after Jan. 1 in Clcve. land, New York, Chicago, Los An geles and Detroit. The calculator is the product of two years of development by tech nicians of the International Busi ness Corp, and Carey’s staff. It works on punch-card information which the tax form carries.

These cards in turn are fed into the “Big Brain.” It will accept from the punch card duplicates such tax figures as adjusted gross income, exemptions, deductions, prepayment credits and payment credits, store these fac tors in its so-called memory, determine the taxable income in each bracket and then calculate the combined normal tax and surtax applicable to each bracket, add the totals and produce the correct tax answer. And all in one-seventieth of a second! In cases of joint returns, it will divide the taxable income, figure the tax on each half and multiply by two. It also will take the standard deduction and specific deductions and give the taxpayer the benefit of the lower tax. The “Big Brain” will be able to process approximately 85% of the million-plus returns which will be filed with Carey’s office between Jan. 1 and March 15. Returns re porting incomes of $7,000 and over will get their usual auditing ex amination. An I. B. M. representative who has worked on the “Big Brain” says only three or four men really understand the complicated work ings of the device. Only one, he said could attempt to explain it in taxpayer's language.

Martin L. Sloan, vice president of the General Elecric Company with headquarters at Nela Park is retiring under the company’s pension program after nearly 40 years of service. One of Mr. Sloan’s best-known achievements involved the introduction of the sealed beam headlight for automobiles over a decade ago. He not only acted cs coordinator of the various GE activities involved, but also brought the various automobile manufacturers into agreement on the development. Succeeding Mr. Sloan is Fred F. Harroff, general manager of the lamp department at Nela Park, who retains his present position here. A native of Canfield, Harroff was graduated from Salem (Ohio) High School and Western Reserve University. Dr. Zay Jeffries, who began service with GE in 1914 as a con sultant to the National Lamp Works on East 152nd st., will also retire December 31st. Dr. Jeffries, now of Pittsfield, Mass., was on the faculty at Case Institute of Techonology before joining GE. He is still a trustee there. He holds the government’s Medal of Merit, the highest civilian honor, for services with the War Metallurgy Committee in World War II and was the first recipient of the Gold Medal of American Society for Metals. O’der Pcdeslrhn Warned To Cross Street With Care “Wet or icy streets greatly in crease accident hazards to pedes trians and particularly to elderly people,” H. S. Weaver, Chief of East Cleveland’s police depart ment said today in urging persons in the 65 and up age group to dou ble their care in crossing streets during bad weather. Chief H. S. Weaver is City of East Cleveland's official represen tative for the National Pedestrian Protection Contest sponsored by the American Automobile Associa tion and Cleveland Automobile Club. "Attempts to walk faster than normal may result in their falling and then perhaps being struck,” he said. “Elderly pedestrians frequently depend upon motorists to slow down or stop for them. While most drivers are glad to do this when they can, it is a dangerous mistake to count on it. Pedestrians under estimate the distance which it takes a vehicle to stop. Sometimes automobiles just can not stop in time to avoid hitting pedestrians who walk in front of them,” Chief Weaver stressed. “Select the best protected cross walk, preferably one where a police officer is stationed, or a traffic light is in operation. When possible, avoid crossing intersec teions at extra wide points, where you cannot make it across before the signal changes. When in doubt, always wait until there is a safer opportunity to cross,” Chief Weav er advised elderly pedestrians in conclusion. ★Vets News* Professional publicists from the fields of radio, television and journalism are being sought to fill openings in the Organized Reserve Corps.

Although this is an entirely new type of unit for the organized reserves, reservists, both officers and enlisted men assigned, will find themselves with an Army outfit given entirely to the peace time training of personnel whose primary interests lie in public relations. Public information training for the organized reserves being more or less an unknown quantity, the unit will operate pretty much on a write-your-own ticket basis,” said Col. Kelso. He further out lined objectives of tho unit as BAEV NEEDS Nationally Advertised Brands Forest Kill Pharmacy Superior at Euclid GL. 9413 follows: to encourage and main tain the useful relations personnel with the ORC to provide a pool of professional public relations reserve officers and enlisted men during peacetime which can be used by the Army in any number of ways in the execution of its public information program to provide active duty assignments for officers and men enabling optimum utilization of their educa tion, experience, military training and skills, to furnish mobilization assignments which will utilize fully their talents.

Even Wee Leaks Can Run Up That Water Bill With New York City facing a water famine, its water depart ment employees are being sent out to check leaks in the system. Early reports indicate that mil lions of gallons of water are being wasted daily through indifference and carelessness on the paxt, of the consumer. Remembering a statement is sued recently by James E. Barnes, assistant superintendent of the East Cleveland Water Department anent this subject, we dug up the record. Mr. Barnes says it still holds true. Even the merest leak can mount to many cubic feet of water wasted in a month’s period. For instance: At 40 pounds pressure, a very thin leak (similar to a mere dripping in a water faucet) can count up to 600 cubic feet in a month and 1800 cubic feet in three months at a cost of $2.59. And the monetary cost is not the least of the damage. The actual loss of the water itself is far more important. A worn faucet washer will per mit a one-sixteenth of an inch of water to flow for a waste of 2,500 cubic feet in a month, 7,500 cubic feet in three months at a loss of $10.78. A leak in the toilet adds even more to .the consumer’s water bill. A one-eight inch stream amounts to 10,000 cubic feet in four weeks, 30,000 cubic feet in three months and adds $43.13 to the statement for the three month’s period.

It amounts to a waste of 40,300 cubic feet of the water supply and, if allowed to continue for three months, adds $173.79 to the water bill. A large faucet left running really hits the jackpot. A three eights inch stream can click 93,800 cubic feet of water on the meter reading in only one month, and in three months will mean an overhead charge of $404.51 to the water account. These costs, explains Mr. Barnes, are based on a stream the size indicted running steadily at the given pressure of 40 pounds, for 24 hours a day, 30 days a month. The water department recom mends periodically checking of meters to determine if there are leaks in the system. Noisy pipes also indicate leaks. Water con sumers unable to locate a suspected leak are requested to notify the Water Department, MU. 5020. The service i» Dec.
