GIRLS HAVE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT In the sixth and seventh period gym classes there is being held a very ex- citing baseball tournament.

AHS INDUSTRIAL ARTS NEWS In wood shop Johnny Windle has finished a bedside table, complete with drawers, and is helping Carl Ehlers finish his kayak which is really a flashy job. Jack Poteet has been working on many problems on the wood lathe, and is now working on a candle holder.

The new forms include a live gopher snake which reaches a length of about two and one-half feet, and two very cute baby squirrels, which proved quite popular with the class. Ernie should be commended on his fine work, for hardly a week goes by when he does n~ bring socne new form of wild life for the class to study.

The Pachukes later regretted this engagement, for the Wheatie Eaters had on their hitting shoes and really went to town, coming out with thirteen hits. The Pachukes suffered their second. straight set-back by this team. The usual form of ball played by the Pa- SIMPLIFIED TAX ; Ot~t~,of the I~g of ggmaplex and be- wildering tax laws has come a miracle in tax s'hnplicity which is now before Congress for appraval. This new measure, which appears certain to be passed without import- ant changes, will entirely relieve some 30 millioa taxpayers with incomes un- der $5,1X)0 of the necessity far filing an income tax return. Their full taxe~ will be deducted from wages or salary. "1"o 20 million other people who must continue reporting, it will greatly simplify their task. Thus an incalcul- able number of man hours will be sav- ed for both taxpayers and deputies. Taking the nation as a whole.it has been the long and weary hot~rs spent over tax forms, rather than the actual payment of the tax itself that 'has proved to be the real burden. This is borne out by the fact tha,t in spite of sharply higher tax rates, the American people have been 'increasing their bank savings at an unprecedented rate in addition to War Bond purchases. In California this "saving spree" was re- flec{ed in the figures of the State's largest bank which has branches in more than 300 communities. In the two and one-half year period ending December 31, 1943, individual savings in this one banking institution alone had increased over $400 million. been building a project which every- chukes was exhibited, weak hitting, and So, it is apparent that to most in- class is busily preparing one is asking questions about.
