Kelley SCS Technician Did you ever think much about water? If you are the average type person: it's rat:h- er doubtful. Water is some-I thing plentiful in this area and I most Often taken for granted. I For a changehere are some I facts which may stimulate I some thought. [ r for I When saying a praye just an inch of rain; here is! what you are asking for. An acre of land covers 43',560 sq. ft. or 6,272,620 s. inches. An inch of water on an ,acre o,f land is, then, 6,272,620 cu. in. This amount equals 27,154 gal- lons or 226,193 pounds, or 113 tons.. Therefore, with just an inch of rain you are asking for 113 tons of water for every acre af your 1,and. It takes 115 gallons of water to grow enough wheat to make one iaf of bred. Depending on the methods used, produc- tion of a ton of steel requires from 6000 .to 110,000 gallons og water.. Producing 1000 yards o woolen cloth requires 40,000 to 510,000 gallons. In 1900 eaoh individual was responsible or using 600 gal- lons of water per day, and in, 1950 the 'same individual was t;sing 1100 gallons daily. As a result, total water use in the UnRed States quadrupled from 1900 to 1950. It is expected tv double again by 1975. By then, about 1800 gallons will be re- quired for each man, wman and C ht.,d. This amounts to 7.5 tons per individual daily. bmldtng, demanding payment for his hospital bills as well as for his mental suffering. The jury decided in favor of George, awarding him $20,000, and the company appealed to the Supreme Court. "$20,000 is an excesssve verdict under the circumstanc- es," claimed the c'om]any. "George's hospital expenses were under $2,000. Sure he had some meintal suffering, but not $20,000 worth." "It was no fun fallng 18 floors down an elevator shaft," said George. "I'm entitled to that money:" The Supreme Court reduced the amount of damages to $12,500. The court ruled that he was entitled to cmrpensa- tion for Shock ,and right. This miraculous escape, coming throtrgh as he did with all of his be=es intact and almost all his skin, obviously agfected his nervous system very little. He as bak working at the same job two months later, even though he could have pev- fomed his electrical work eseWhere at equal pay. So, while compensatton t%r friffht is quite understandable, t must be .commensurate with the in- jmT, pain and suffering at- re turning out ,about 2,500 tending it. bricks an hour. George won the ca, but the amount f his damages was re- duced tO $12,500. (This column is written to inform, n advise. Facts may cbarge the appfication o the law.) MENTAL SUFFERING George fell 18 floors down an eIevator shaft while install- in, g electrical wiring: Despite this terrifying expermnce, he received relatively minor in- juries. Miraculously, his all was broken when he became entangled in the cable and wir- ing inside the elevator s,hat. George was hospit, azed for a time, but within two months was back working at his old job as an elevator shft elec- trician.

What is the connection between this happening and American small business.There is what might be called a re- flex connnection. For one thing, among his many wives was the daughter of a former Dominican dicta- tor. It eventually developed that a great deal of his fancy spend- ing in inter- national cafc society was financed by American foreign aid money sent his country tc improve t h e lot of the peo- c.w. Harder ple. Obviously, part of this money lavished on champagne and gifts for paramours was taken from small business. * * * But the effects of his madcap spending are even deeper than this. Before the U. S. giveaway programs were ever dreamed up, he achieved financial suc- cess marrying wealthy women. Numbered among these wives were two of America's most publicized and wealthiest heir- eases. Both of these ladies also engaged in a merry-go-round of changing nuptial vows. The highly publicized flaunt- Lag of inherited wealth started taking place when men were selling apples on the streets, which created quite a contrast. This sort of thing I .= ta be ended, the lawmakers decided, with the result that stiff inheri- tance taxes were ena( d. *** However, they little realized in addition to clipping wings of future heiresses, they had also sounded death knell for many family owned businesses. ]For in due time it became ap- i parent that when the head of a family owned business iUed, cash was needed to pay the taxes, or the business was forced out. In many cases, to avoid such a disaster the busi- ness was sold before death to a big corporation. Some remedy was enacted in 1958. After an eight year battle led by the National Federa- tion of Independent Business, the law was changed to permit the tax to be paid over a pe- riod of 10 years, with interest. But now for the past six years there has been a drive to get passed a simple law in- troduced by Rep. J. Arthur Younger of California. This would permit the principals of family, or closely held busi- nesses, to anticipate the inher- itance tax that will be charged and carry life insurance pay- ble to the government. As it stands now, life insur- ance payable to the estate can be taken out, but the proceeds merely add to the value of the estate, thus adding more tax. Rep. Younger's bill would per- mit insurance made out to government non-taxable. This is a simple, logical plan, yet action is delayed. Action to correct an evil was taken very hastily. Yet further action needed to correct the greater evils created by the first act is prolonged. This recurring phenomena in American politi- cal life gives rise to the often voiced opinion that there should be a ten year moratorium on passing new laws so that there can be an understanding of present laws, and a wiping off of the books the bad laws.
