What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Co-Ops Battle to Keep Tax-Exempt Status T 'H E National Council of Farmer Co-operatives, representing ap proximately 2,300,000 members of local farm co-operatives, is clearing decks for action. A bitter fight in congress is anticipated over the move to tax farm co-operatives on income, along with other so-called tax-exempt organizations. These would include such tax- exempt financial institutions as mu tual savings banks and building and loan associations. According to a re cent report of the internal revenue division, total assets reported by tax- exempt groups for 1944 aggregated $13,438,908,000. Organizations en gaged in business such as the mutual banks, and co-operatives, accounted for the bulk of these assets with $12,- 034.959.000i The report further showed that the gross income of the tax-free groups exceeds $5,000,000,- 000 annually. Of. this total income the farm co-operatives are the larg est tax-free group with gross Income in 1943 of $2,233,804,000. Co-Ops Pay Many Taxes. Members of the farm co-opera tives received $117,646,000 in refunds or patronage dividends and other di rect disbursements, according to the report. To combat the impression that the farm co-operatives are, in fact, tax-free, the National Council of Farmer Co-operatives, however, has just issued a statement showing that for the year 1943, the 5,233 co operatives Included in the treasury statement paid a total of $14,822,000 in various kinds of taxes including property tax, social security tax, use taxes and all other taxes paid by other business groups. \Farmer Co-operatives which are exempt under section 101 (12) oper ate as non-profit organizations and they pay no federal income tax be cause they have no income to tax,\ said John H. Davis, executive sec retary of the national council. Davis further pointed out that there are approximately 10,300 co operative organizations reporting to the Farm Credit administration, whereas the treasury report only in cluded 5,223 of the farm marketing and purchasing associations or only slightly over 50 per cent of the total. The treasury report, Mr. Davis says, “completely refutes the claims of those who say that farmer co operatives are avoiding the payment of their fair share of taxes.\ Tax League Is Spearhead. The National Tax Equality league, supported by large industries in the grain, meat and other industrial fields, is carrying the ball for those seeking to bring the farmer co-oper atives into the income tax fold. They are being supported in some in stances by organizations of small in dependent merchants, who are said to feel the greatest burden of com petition from the co-operatives. And at this time the smaller business committee of the house is working on a report which is expected to make recommendations on the tax question. Hearings held by the cpm- mittee occupied several days and representatives of all the major farm organizations testified against the proposed move. The small business men up and down Main street in the smaller home towns of the nation, the inde pendent grain dealers, hardware and implement dealers and others, are loudest in their demands that the co-operatives pay the federal tax. The treasury department itself, how ever, could not say what proportion of the dividends or refunds could be classed as taxable income and it is likely that if there is any action either way, it is more likely to be proposed to equalize competition with this private business rather than for the revenue involved. Too Many Votes Involved. Then too, there is always the polit ical angle. This writer is convinced that this congress, which is so sensi tive to the political winds, will not take action, since the farm mem bership so far outnumbers the mem bership of the small business groups. The political potency of some two million farm members, all allied with one or the other of the three large farm organizations, is something this reactionary congress will not overlook. And so the prospects are that any attempt to extend the federal gov ernment’s taxing power to include these farm co-operatives will reach an impasse. At least it will be a steep uphill fight, which the co-opera tives are most likely to win. At any rate, they are prepared here to go to bat on the question, and they will be aided by other pow erful forces included in the tax-free groups, such as the unions, the tax- free financial and lending institu tions, and mutual insurance com panies. Tied in with this group also are the non-business organizations which also are tax free/ such as chambers of commerce, hospitals and social welfare organizations, educational organizations and scien tific foundations . . . all 'of which feel that an inroad into one tax-free group may endanger the others. . Washington Di&estj Strive for Employment Of Disabled Veterans A c t t o Furnish Handicapped With Chance For Gainful Occupation; Industry Pledges Full Co-Operation. By BAUKHAGE Newt Analyst and Commentator, WNU Service, 1615 Eye Street, N.W., Washington, D . C. When a lot more workers than jobs begin to. plague the employ ment offices of the country, some 2 Vi million men stand to have A little tougher sledding than .their fellows . . . that is, unless the pro gram that will be getting under way as these lines appear achieves the worthy purpose that its designers have for it. The potential workers who are go ing to get this special help are the men who have made the second greatest sacrifice in World War li the ones who gave all never came back. I’m goipg to talk about the disabled American veterans. In times of great unemployment a person with a disability has two strikes on him when pitted for a job against a perfectly able-bodied worker. Therefore, the Disabled American Veterans, a veterans’ or ganization whose membership is confined solely to the war disabled, is setting up the machinery to go to bat for him so that he from whom much has been taken to keep the rest of us secure within the wide bounds of these United States will have at least as good a chance as his able-bodied colleague in getting a job where he can earn a living for himself and his family. For the first time in its history, DAV, the Disabled American Vet erans, has set up a highly integrat ed national network of employment officers headed in Washington by Dr. Gilbert S. Macvaugh, a disabled veteran of this war and a former lieutenant commander with wide ex perience in personnel and employ ment counselling. These employ- tnent officers have their hands reaching out In two directions—one toward the disabled veteran and one toward the employer in an endeavor to bring the two together so that the employer and Ihe veteran may meet and reach an agreement on a Job. Let me give you two small exam ples of the type of thing the DAV is getting ready to do in a big way. Take the case of the man who had been wounded in the invasion of Normandy. An injury to his spinal column paralyzed him from the waist down so that he is bed ridden. On directions from the Washington DAV office, the local employment officer of the DAV con tacted the man to see what kind of work he might do while in bed and yet receive some income. In the man’s community there was a small plant for making hooked rugs. The DAV representative arranged to have the bed-ridden veteran make hooked rugs and market them with this concern. Then there is an entirely different type of case—seeing that justice is done the disabled veteran after he does get a job. A guard was em ployed in a certain public build ing. He had a slight nervous dis order for which a psychiatrist was treating him, prescribing a little medication to be taken while on duty. One day the medicine made the veteran feel drowsy and he asked to be relieved from duty for a few hours until he could overcome it. That was refused him. Subse quently charges were preferred against him and he was given a letter of suspension. The DAV' Na tional Employment officer went to the mat for him and had the whole case uncovered. Find Boys Can Do Job Well Back of the helping hand offered to the disabled veterans to get them into jobs a lot of spade work has been going on — the ground has been prepared with great care so that when the crisis comes— many workers and few jobs—the former G.I. who literally gave part of himself for the rest of us will have an opportunity to work. The DAV asserts that he can do a job well in spite of his handicap. It points to records it is accumulating which, show that when a disabled veteran is hired, he shows great care and conscientiousness in per forming his task. It’s something like the story of the old Washington airport—it was one of the most dan gerous in the United States, but there were no major accidents on It. The answer was that pilots, knowing the hazards, took extra precautions in using the field. So a disabled veteran, already knowing what it is to be handicapped, uses considerable extra care. I said the DAV had set up à na tional employment program for the first time in its existence, headed up in Washington by a National Employment officer. Then each state has a Chief Employment of ficer. Thè DAV in each state is divided into chapters, or local units, and each has an employment of ficer also, thus bringing the contact of this helping hand right down into the community where the veteran lives or is hospitalized. Before the program can begin operating in the complete way en visioned by its planners, the men who can offer the jobs have to be contacted personally and the chal lenge of their opportunity to make work available to handicapped vet erans has to be put squarely be fore them. This has been the first task of Dr. Macvaugh and his corps of employment officers. DAV Gets Off To Good Start A strong beginning was made when at a conference in Atlantic City the following representative or ganizations, among others, were contacted personally by the DAV National Employment officer and asked to influence the businesses for which they are spokesmen to put disabled veterans on their work rolls: the National Association of Manufacturers, the American Bank ers association, the Chamber of Commerce, the National Council of Farmer Co-operatives, the Ameri can Farm Bureau federation, the American Retail federation, the Air Transport association, Aircraft Irt- dustries association, Investment Bankers association, Committee of Economic Development, American Trucking asso c iatio n , American Waterways Operators, Association of American Railroads, National Foreign Trade Council, National Re tail Dry Goods association, Interna tional Association of Lions Clubs, National Grange, National Associa tion of Motor Bus Operators, and so on. But this gives you an indica tion of the scope of the cultivation of the soil for Job3 for disabled vet erans. Available Jobs are made known to the Veterans’ Employment Repre sentative of the United States Em ployment service, which has agreed to designate an assistant In each state who will specialize in the em ployment of war disabled G.I.s. The DAV has developed a system whereby its chapter employment of ficer knows as soon as a man who has a disability is released from an institution and is available for work in his community. He also knows the disabled veterans living there who need jobs. It is his task to bring the men and the jobs to gether. It Is the DAV chapter employ ment officer who takes the man to the veterans’ employment repre sentative of the USES where the jobs are registered, and on to the pro spective employer, if necessary, to clinch the employment of the ex- GJ. There are five planks in the em ployment platform of the DAV. First, to convince employers that they should employ dis abled American veterans, some where, IMMEDIATELY; Second, to support the train ing of disabled veterans for ir.»ore tjian one key job in an industry so that when heavy unemployment develops, the disabled man will not be the first discharged, for be will be able to do more than one job; Third, to advocate increased wages for disabled veterans be cause they have become more valuable as a result of the mul tiple training; Fourth, to »try to improve working conditions for the dis abled ex-G.I. so that his job is a pleasant one; Fifth, to see that preference is given the disabled veteran in staying on the job when people have to be released. B A R B S b y B a u k h a g e Corned beef, corned beef hash, deviled ham, chili con came, lunch eon meat and sausage meat made up the bulk of the protein diet of the soldier at the outbreak- of the war. But don’t worry, mother, there were 40 canned meats before they were through so you can safely serve almost anything he used to eat. Investigators say he preferred the kinds 0 1 things be got at home. President Truman recently re moved a little gun-model from his desk and replaced it with a plough share. Let's hope it won't have to be reconverted again. I • • Need a chain for your watch-dog? The navy has a lot of surplus. You can get it in convenient 90-foot lengths, diameter of links up to 2% inches. That ought to hold him; Grantiand Rice S UPPORTERS of the Ivy League policy of no football scholarships or pay, and those who believe in such scholarships and big-time foot* hall, are still tangled up in an argu ment that is now 40 years old. Tho correct answer is that there is room enough for both but there is no reason why they should meet in competitions that are almost certain to be uneven and unfair. Football needs badly the restrain ing influence of the Ivy League and other confer ence leaders to keep from running com pletely wild In the scramble for talent all over the map. But there is also something to the argument that many p o o r e r students would be unable to get a college educa tion except from the rewards that foot ball offers through scholarships and other financial aids. ‘‘Why,’’ one of the leading coaches in the country asked me, \shouldn’t a poor boy have the chance to use his football ability to pay his way through college? I have been a football coach for well over 20 years and I could tell you of hun dreds of such boys who have re ceived college educations and moved far up in life, who except for foot ball would have had no such chance to improve. Why should so many of these be barred simply because they are poor? It Is much easier on the football coach to have this steady pressure of developing a winning team every season re moved. Today in many cases, this matter of digging up material Is the toughest part of a coach's job. It is much easier to build character than it is to build a winner.” Give Help to Local Boys \This part of your argument Is O.K.,\ we replied. \But what about this ranging for material 1,000 to 2,000 miles away, scouring the country for prep school or high school stars in a hot competitive race—where many are only given courses they can handle without risking any brain collapse?\ “This,\ said the veteran coach, “Isn’t right. Players in the main who draw scholarships or help should be taken from nearby places. But how are you going to stop the alumni from cutting in? Or certain colleges who have smart hut well-covered recruiting systems that look after the job? I like to see southern teams made up of southern players, east ern teams of eastern players and western teams of western players. But I don’t see how you gre going to stop It.” It is for this reason that college conferences or groups are needed to establish certain set standards. Otherwise all competition will be cockeyed. Colleges that don’t allow football scholarships have no busi ness playing against those that do. They are not evenly matched. This also applies to scholarship standards. I could give you any number of ex amples concerning young stars who tried to enter certain colleges and failed to make the grade. They then entered other colleges with much lower scholastic standards to return and run over the stricter schools. This is strictly unfair from every angle. Any one can see that. It is for this reason the stricter col leges should play together and let the big timers fight it out among themselves. The first and main purpose of col lege should not be sport but educa tion. Sport, however, Is a strong and important sideline. There arc many who are equipped to handle a much higher form of learning or education than others arc. But the main Idea is tp give both groups a chance to improve — even If many ran only work along elementary lines. It is for this reason that laxity in the way of scholarships and other help has its place for certain groups that otherwise might be barred from any form of college or educational life. Room for Ivy League But this doesn’t mean there isn’t a major spot for the Ivy League or Eastern conference or any confer ence that decides to set up certain higher standards and see that these are enforced, as far as they can be enforced in a human world. Some time back one of our lead ing educators, who loved football, made this important point. “There is too much \sock and not enough Socrates in our college life today. 1 am afraid there is a danger of our century's athletics going the way they did in ancient Greece, where they were developed to the point of becoming a thorough abuse. We are now moving rapidly into a new age where brain Is going to he mnch more important than brawn. This doesn’t mean that there isn't still a tremendous need for belter physical improvement and develop ment. As a nation, outside of our limited top athletic crust, we are still far shy in the way of physical improvement for the miss, for those who need it most. But this situation isn’t going to be helped by giving most of onr time and attention to the winning stars, who need it least.
