New Federal Tax
Is Not Yet Felt
Washington, Aug. 19.—(AP)— The
full benefit of the new taxes hasn’t
yet been realized by far. but they con
tributed more than three percent of
the Federal income in July.
The Treasury’s report, though,
dhows that some of the old standbys
provided a big share of the $61,688,467
received in that month. Income taxes,
for instance, gave $17,457,131;
ebtes $28,605.437; chewing and smok

The total fell short of that of ST4,-
