C, March 1. Work on the collection of 6,000,000, 000 has been begun by the bureau of internal revenue. This is the esti mated vield of the new revenue bill. ine evade taxation "Any person who deliberately con ceals tax liability, or who falsified a return in order to reduce or evade any internal revenue tax, or who deliberately abets such concealment or fraud finds arrayed against him the entire strength of this bureau, pressing for the full civil and crim inal penalties. That is the attitude toward the tax-evader, expressed in ono sentence. Whether he is a moonshiner, a stealthy trafficker in habit-forming drugs, a juggler of in come figures, a delinquent in making the sworn return the law requires, or a revenue violator of any kind, the bureau is charged with the duty of hunting him out and exacting the full punishment provided in the law. "Toward the taxpayer who means to comply with the internal revenue laws, fully and honestly, the bureau extends a helping hand. Co-operation with the taxpayer is our watch word and objective. One of the most difficult of the many problems in tax collecting is to classify those who fail to fulfil the obligations Im posed by law. "There are three distinct classes of deliqucncy with which we have to deal. First, the taxpayer who had reasonable cause brought about by except' -tf conditions beyond his control, .econdly, the man who did not look up or did not realize his obligations; and thirdly, the person 'vho wilfully evaded compliance with the law. "As for the man who shows a reasonable cause within certain lines established by the bureau, no penal ties are asserted. All other delin quents are more carefully investi gated before prosecution is begun. Many of these offenses are caused by ignorance and negligence. Failure to make the reports required by law may in some cases warrant severe penalties, as where the delinquent continues his delinquency after being warned of the penalty for failure to make return, "But there is no relief for the man who wilfullv evades, wilfully ne glects or wilfullv falsifies. He is classed with other law-breakers in the eyes of the bureau and is vig' orouslv prosecuted in the courts. "There is no other course open to the bureau, in meeting fairly and squarely the demand of the willing taxpayer. The bureau is fulfilling its part of this contract with the peo' pie this contract mat meanso much in the practical?' effective Rd just administration of the internal revenue laws." -w .. vAnnli Vift nrtt'ot-innV nf pwrv llllf IttlVik WiV IJUVfllV MW.l V lj sinirle person in the United states "HEY THERE!"

Persons whose net income equalled or exceeded these amounts, according to their marital status, must file a return ot income wun the collector of internal revenue for the district in which they live on or before March 15. Here is what will happen to them if they don't for failure to file a re turn on time, a fne of not more than $1,000 and an additional assess ment of 25 per cent of the amount of tax due. For "willfully refusing" to make a return on time, a fine not exceed ing $10,000, or not exceeding one year's imprisonment, or both. For making a false or fraudulent return, a fine of not more than $10, 000, or imprisonment for not more than one year, or both, together with an additional assessment of 50 per cent of the amount of tax evaded. For failure to pay the tax on time, a fine of not more than $1,000 and an additional assessment of 5 per cent of the amount of tax unpaid, plus 1 per cent interest for each full month during which it remains un paid. In addition to the $1,000 and $2,000 personal exemptions, taxpayers are allowed an exemption of $200 for each person dependent upon them for chief support if such person is under eighteen years of age and in capable of self-support. Under the 1917 act, this exemption was allow ed only for each dependent "child."

The normal rate of tax under the new act is 6 per cent of the first $4,000 of net income above the ex emptions, and 12 per cent of the net income in excess of $4,000.

NEW INVENTION MULTIPLIES WIRES An achievement more extraordi nary by far than making two blades i of grass grow where one grew be fore, is the sending of five tele phone conversations simultaneously over one pair of wires where but one conversation could travel before, says the March Popular Mechanics Magazine. The new invention also make it possible to send 40 telegraph messages simultaneously over one pair of wires, or they can be used in part for telephoning and in part for telegraphing. Ten conversations can be carried on over two pair of wires which formerly could be used for a maximum of three conversa tions by means of the so-called "phantom circuit." Tets covering sev eral weeks have been made of the system on a Baltimore-Pittsburgh line and have been pronounced suc cessful in every way.

PHONE BLUE 111 In view of the tremendous losses sustained by merchant shipping dur ing the war, much interest attends the development of improved salvage equipment. Among apparatus that are claimed to embody advantageous features is a hoisting pontoon. At least two of the pontoons would be used together in salvage work, one being stationed on each side of the wreck. Booms hold the pontoons apart and away from the sunken ship while they are operating op posite each other. In the event of a large ship being in hand, two or three of the hoisting vessels would be placed end to end on each side. It is estimated that two 290-ft. pontoons working in unison would exert a lifting force of from 12,000 to 14,000 tons CONSTI TO DECREASE UHPLOYBT Matters directly connected with jK .. .,,!.?

Its great building campaign, as a result of which it is hoped to bring into existence a billion dollars' wortn of new highways, $2,000,000,000 worth of public works and municipal improvements, and a million new homes for American workmen, to icost $3,000,000,000 more, is the one great constructive feature of the transition period. But meanwhile the normal activities of the department, increased as a result of the pressing needs of the nation, are being vigor ously carried on. The department, through the bu reau of labor statistics, is studying the cost of living to determine how much food, clothing, fuel, light, house room, housefurnishings, pianos, medical and surgical service, insur ance, schooling, car fares, amuse ments, vacations, newspapers, and books take out of the average family budget annually. These figures will mnlrg nnssihlp the estabishment of standards of living that will be of great service to the nation. Disunites involving thousands of workers have been quietly settled through the efforts of the labor ad justment service, and great plants were thus kept goinr steadily. The naturalization bureau is providing textbooks for aliens who are prepar ing themselves for the United States citizenship. Efforts are under way to return to school as many children as possible of the children under 14 years of age who entered industry at the be ginning of the war. The children s bureau is urging the back-to-school drive, and 30 states are giving splen did cooperation. . Many engineers and other techni cal, executives, chemists statisticians, employment managers, and cost ac countants have been mustered I out of the national service which they en tered as a patriotic duty, and the professional section, United States employment service, department of labor, is placing uiem. &3HnH'?Kci&&, SiSiHb. tmmmm mmm 5l wwimk i -' ' (mm wmM 1 wv&m i -' - 4 llSt Wwm MM mfm mm ma M ilHH :.
