Co-op Leape Seeks Funds For Radio Indianapolis—The board of directors of The Cooperative League of the U. S. A., meeting here for their quarterly meeting October 21, approved the forma tion of a National Co-op Radio Fund and ok’d a drive to raise .$50,000 to tell the co-op story to America by radio. The proposed series of radio programs will be part of the Nationwide Co-op Drive and will be a project supported chiefly by co-op member s who want to make a direct contribution to ward the national educational program. Up to the present time there has been no channel through which individual co operators could support national activities except through dues of 5 cents per member per year paid by regional cooperative associa tions. The plan to ‘‘Tell your neighbor about the cooperative movement by radio” will be an opportunity for co-op members who are “too busy” or “too bashful” to multi ply their effectiveness in reach ing several million American con sumers who have not yet heard about the cooperatives. Although the drive will concen trate on finding 50,000 one-dol lar-a-year men, contributions of any amount are welcome and should be mailed to the Co-op Radio Fund, The Cooperative League, 167 West 12th Street, New York City. Internal Revenue Issues Warning INTERNAL REVENUE RETAIL TAXES The Bureau of Internal Revenue recently issued a warning to mer chants not to advertise that they are paying retail taxes on certain articles and not passing on the cost to their customers. The taxes in question are the new retail excise taxes on sales of jewelry, furs, and toilet prepara tions. These taxes went into effect October 1 and are not to be con fused with the manufacturers’ ex cise tax which went into effect October 14. The Internal Revenue Code, officials pointed ouj., prohibits such advertising and provides a fine of not more than SI,OOO for violation of the prohibition. Reports received by the Bureau, officials said, indicate that a lack of knowledge apparently prevails concerning the penalty which is applicable to such advertising concerning the retail taxes on sales of jewelry, furs, and toilet preparations. To create a demand for their products, some merchants are publishing advertisements con taining statements to the effect that the retail taxes are not in cluded in the sales price of the articles because the taxes will be paid by them and not passed on to the customer, the officials said. To prevent the new retail sales taxes from being used as a means of deriving unfair competitive ad vantage, the law provides for the fine in connection with the sale of a taxable article and makes illegal any statement, whether oral or written, whether in adver tisement or otherwise, intended or calculated to lead prospective purchasers to believe that the sale price of the article does not in clude the retail sales tax. Accordingly, although a mer chant may absorb the tax and not pass it on to the customer, be may not make use of that fact in any manner to induce the sale of his merchandise without subjecting himself to possible liability for the penalty specified in tbe law. PRICES The cost of living is now 9.6% higher than in August, 1989. There was an advance of 3.8% between mid-June and mid-Sep tember of this year. During that 3-month period, clothing costs rose more than 7%, house fur nishings more than 6%, and food nearly 5%. Food is now 12.6% higher than it was last March. Use baking powder with sweet milk and baking soda with sour milk. When substituting sweet milk use four times as much bak ing powder as soda called for in sour milk recipe. A little lemon juice, or vinegar, added to sweet milk will sour it enough for cook ing. The largest yellow fever inocu lation of troops ever attempted by the army was completed recently when the entire command at Puerto Rico received immuniza tion.
