REVENUE TAX ON
ICE HIM MID
HU SOFT DIRS
Revenue Tax Collector Pardee
• Explains Intent Of
This Tax
TAX LEVIED ON SALES
Revenue tax on Ice cream and soft
drinks causing the revenue men,
C. H. Pardee, General I>eputy, and
his assistant, W. E. Pennington, Dep
uty Collector, considerable work in
adjusting local difficulties along this
line.
Both government representatives
were busy this morning in their offices
in the Federal Building, hard at work
on taxpayers’ returns this morning,
taking up all subjects from cough
drops and scented soaps to income tax.
“The tax on soft drinks, commonly
known as the beverage tax, is upon
drinks compounded or mixed at the
fountains, ice cream parlors and simi
lar places of busines,” said General
Deputy Collector Pardee.
The tax is upon the individual sale
price at the rate of 1 cent for each ten
cent sale or fraction thereof. The tax
is upon the whole amount of the pur
chase. Thus, if the purchaser orders
two sodas at the same time, each sell
ing for 15 cents, the tax is 3 cents
and not 4 cents. If, however, he buys
one soda for 15 cents the tax is 2
cents and if he purchases another 15-
cent drink the tax is 2 cents on the
second sale. ’ The tax is upon the price
of certain commodities “paid to any
person conducting a soda fountain,
ice cream parlor, or other similar
place of business." Sales of soft
drinks, ice cream and similar articles
by individuals or organizations, such
as religious, educational or charitable
societies, on special occasions only, as
church festivals, social parties, etc.,
are not taxable; such sales in stands
and booths at agricultural fairs, rac
ing parks, public exhibitions, circuses,
shows, and similar places are taxable.
The distinction is between sales made
by a person conducting a place of
business, even though temporarily,
end merely incidental sales, which
Can not properly be called ‘‘business.’’
Sales of soft drinks, ice cream and
similar articles of food and drink are
not taxable when made in the regular
course of business at a hotel, restau
rant. cafeteria, lunch room or club
house, unless such articles are sold J
separate and apart from meals. Any
sales of soft drinks, ice cream and'
similar articles sold from a soda
fountain are taxable even though sold
as a part of a meal. That tax is levied
upon the sale of "soft drinks, Ice
cream, ice cream sodas, sundaes, or
other similar articles of food or drink, j
when sold for consumption in or in'

proximity to such places of business."
When any of the specified articles are
sold in such containers or under such
conditions as to indicate that they
would ordinarily be consumed in or
in proximity to the place of business
they are taxable. When soft drinks,
ice cream or similar articles of drink
| or food are sold to be carried away
for consumption at a place not in
proximity to the place of business,
: such drink, ice cream, or food, being
placed in containers of a kind ordi
narily used to convey the articles in
dicated, the sales are not taxable.
Beverages sold at the fountain,
ready for consumption, from a bottle
1 or closed container on which a tax
has been paid are not subject to the
tax. There are certain drinks which
are often sol dat the soda fountains,
ice cream parlors or similar places of
business, which are not regarded as
soft drinks, ice cream products or
similar articles of drink or food. Such
beverages consist of such articles as
hot beef tea, coffee (hot, cold or iced),
tea (hot, cold or iced), buttermilk
milk, hot chocolate or cocoa, hot clam
broth, hot clam bisque, hot tomato
bisque and hot tomato bouillon. No
tax applies on the sale of beverages
6r drinks, such as ginger ale root beer,
moxie, mineral water, etc., when ser
ved directly from a closed container,
in which case the manufacturer's tax
on such drinks has already been
levied. However, if any of the drinks
or beverages herein mentioned are
compounded or mixed with carbon
ated water, flavors, or other ingredi
ent at the fountain, they are taxable
AT TIIE PALACE TONIGHT
Some of the most remarkable rain
storm scenes ever shown tin motion
pictures form one of the many unusual
features of Eugene O’Brien’s first Selz
nick Picture, "The Perfect Lover."
which comes to the Palace Theatre to
day.
Rainstorm scenes are always among
the most difficult to photograph, but
these were especially hard because of
the fact that they were supposed to
be taken at night. Accordingly, a street
scene was erected in the studio and
the various apparatus used in studios
to produce rain effects was put into
operation. These scenes were actually
taken in the middle of the night, and
an extra large crew was* required to
see that’ everything went thrbugh all
right. To ns of were poured
down on the heads of the actors
the floor of the studio was flooded so
deep that it took the stage hands sev
eral hours to dump and bail It dry
again. However, the scenes, when
finally filmed, were so remarkable that
Director Ince felt more than recom
pensed for the expense and trouble.
Wanted—A Cabinet
The Home Service Branch of the
; Red Cross, Miss Ennis, secretary, is
: asking for a cabinet to be used in the
| headquarters. Anyone having one to
give will confer a favor upon the
{Home Service by notifying the Red
Cross headquarters, phone 945.
The cabinet is needed for preserv
ing valuable records and filing valu
| able papers, and the Home Service
1 will be most grateful for the gift.

as specified In the regulations of the
United States Naval Academy. The
question as to whether running is

Would Stop Criticism
"In order that there may be no
question as to our sincerity in this
matter; in order that we may stop the
flood of adverse criticism which wo
ire unable to head off in any other
way, we hereby authorize the presi
dents and secretaries of our respective
classes to affix their signatures here
unto and to request the superintendent
to place this statement in the hands
of the press.

Hazing Must Stop—Daniels
A Washington dispatch states:
"Secretary of the Navy Daniels, af
„er a conference with Admiral Scales,
Superintendent of the Naval Academy,
declared that he would stop all forms
of hazing at the academy, if in doing
so he w r ere forced to expel hundreds
of midshipmen.
"I told Admiral Scales,’’ said Mr.
Daniels, "that I wouldn’t mind expel
ling 200 of them any more than I
would mind eating breakfast in the
morning if that case became neces
sary to stop the hazing. There are
over 2,000 boys there and we could
very well get rid of 200.’’
Secretary Daniels said the practice
of hazing in its slightest form had .\
tendency to break the spirit of the
men, and he is determined to put an
end to it. Investigation of reports of
recent hazing were under way. Ad
miral Scales after the conference with
the Secretary yesterday said:
"Just before leaving Annapolis word
was sent to me by the president and
secretaries of the first and second I!
classes that if there was anything '
these classes could do to enable the
superintendent to establish the fact >
that midshipmen do not and will not
engage in any form of hazing or run
ning. they would gladly do all that
was possible.
Appellate Court Has 9 Cases
Eighty-nine cases appear on the doc
ket of the Maryland Court of Appeals,
for the October term, as finally ar
ranged. The preliminary docket con
tained 76 cases a few weeks ago, hut ’
23 more have since been added. The
term of Court began on Tuesday of
this week and already a number of
the appeals have been disposed of.
Fashion’s Fancies
Some new gauntleted gloves have
contrasting facings.
Chinese inspiration is responsible
for many fine gowns.
Cloaks often show the large-armed
kimono sleeves.
Monkey fur is valued as a trimming j
for taffeta gowns.
Colored embroidery appears on lin
gerie, instead of lace.
The uncorseted effect continues to
be the most favored.
When it comes to keeping appoint- j
ments, you will invariably find the
bill collector on the spot.
Nothing is so uncertain as the cer
tainty of certain politicians.
