EDITOR Excise Tax Repeal Due The consmners of the country got some good news from Washington the other day. It took the form of a report treat the Admin- istra.tion has tentatively decided to request the repeal of a n,umber of ,the federal retail excise taxes ne year. These levies--vdich are lrecisely the same as sales taxes-apply to such universally used .articles as cosmetics, handbags, jewelry, fountain pens arrd so on. And it is an irony that most of them were passed on an emer- gency basis dg World War II arid the Korean Wax, .and it was generally believed that they would end with thane conflicts. But they are still on the books all thee years hter. The apparert fact that the Administra- tion's decision, is described s terLtative Imses a question mark. And it is a question mark that should be iminated. The articles in- volved cannot logically be classed as lxuries in our kind of society. Numbers of ,them are absolute necessities. As a matter of simple justice, repeal should have taken place long ago. Washington reports say that the plan calls for repeal or redtction of certain other spec- ial taxes. These are like the retail sales taxes which one government affici, al described as "increasing the coat of doing business." The reason given for the expected Admin- istration move is that repeal would 'have a salutary effect on the economy at a time wken it rmght be stazing a downturn. That is important. But it is even more important that the government finally keep its word and retieve us of these "wartime emergency" bur- dens. National 4-H Week Planned Nationa,1 4-H Week will be observed this year during ,the September 26-October 3 per- iod. And this is one observance that every American, whether he lives in, a city or in the country, should Wholeheaxecedly support. The 4-H clubs ave, ameng many other things, trainirtg .grounds for the farm people of tomorrow. They iustiH a healthy compet- itive sp'Mt  the boys and girls wlm make up their memberships all across this vast land of ours. They teach a wholesome regard for nature and .her poeesses. They provide knowl- e6ge mt  essential to sourtd and profitable arming .and to the conservation of our mag- nificent agricultural resoln'cs. They promote love and uIderstading of the 1,a, nd, aaxl all t the eements Hint ae a part of the land. Beyond ,that, these clubs build e/mraeter and that, in an era in whida juvenile delin- quency .has become a grave problem, is one of the moat vital of 'needs. Hvnesty, konr, flood sportsmanship, ,individual aral group achieve- ment, kindness, toleraneethese are qu'al - ities ,and goals hat the 4-H movement em- phasizes and helps to ere,ate and sustain. Nothg could be more worthwhile, or more deserving of our support and our respect. The fmilies of 4-H members are fortunate that the mevements exists and continues o i%urishand so is the nation,. 00@mt 40 Years Ago 1924 Miss Anna Seachris, whose engagement to Ansel Ogden vas reee,mly armunced, was honored at a mieUaneous shower given by Mrs. F.

Conservation News ._.'% By Richard H. Jessen Soil Conservation Service Over the years the Soil Con- servation Service has provided technical assistance to district cooperators in developing and applying conservation llas.

Some five years ago the Fed- eral Trade Commission made a cursory study of the trading stamp situation, but decided l there were no valid grounds for taking any action. * $ * Now, the  has been re-a praising the situation, and it is reported sometime this fall the agency will come out with  a full reportii of s t udie s] made of trad- ing stamps in relation to:. the antitrust  The study is  ;:: being practi-  cally confined c.w. Harder to the two big leading national trading stamp firms. The ques- tion being studied concerns the issue of whether or not with these two stamp plans' exclu- sive contracts with retail out- lets, damages their competitors who must either do without trading stamps, or offer a lesser known brand of trading stamps. $ $ $ This becomes an interesting theory inasmuch as FTC is now considering the various trading stamps as brands, the same as cans of pork and beans, or any other commodity that goes into trade channels. , e s If so, they would then come under the laws and regulations prohibiting restraint of trade. The FTC Is also pursuing in this eonnectlon another inter- esting theory. That is based on whether or not trading stamps, in effect, exercise price fixing in retail outlets. FTC become quite interested in the fact that stamps are gen- erally not given with purchases less than I0 cents. - Iatioual Federation of Independent,Buslness NOTICE OF SPECIAL ELECTION CHENEY SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 360 sPOKANE COUNTY, WASHINGTON TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1964 Notice is hereby given that on Tues- day, September 15, 1964, a special electior will be held within Cheney School District No. 360 of Spokane County, Washington, at which election there will be submitted to the qualified electors thereof for their approval and adoption', or rejection, the following propositions PROPOSITION : ($5OO,O00.00 School Bond Isaac) "Shall Cheney School District No. 360 of Spokane County, Wash- ington, become indebted in, the amount of not more than $500,- 000.00, or such lesser amount as car be legally issued under the statute governing the limitation of indebtedmess, for the purpose of paying a part of the cost of a high school to house approximately 574 students, to be constructed on school property, and to furnish Bonds yes ( the same with necessary furriture, aparatl and equipment, all as is stated, described and set forth in' the resolution of the Board of Directors of said School District, adopted July 8, 1964 ; said bonds to be issued for capital purposes only, to bear a rate, or rates, of interest of aot in' excess of five per cent (5c/) per armum, and to run for a period of twenty (20) years from date of issue, and to be payable serially, commening at the end of the second year after date of issue, and in such annual amourts (as nearly as practicable).

For example, in a food store, the store must usually turn over 2% of its gross volume to the stamp company, receiving stamps in return. In states where milk prices are con- trolled by law, the sales of milk are not included because the authorities in those states have decreed that giving stamps is. , Although a retailer must buy stamps on the basis of his gross sales, they are not given out on sales of less than dime. $ * Thus, according to the pres- ent trend of the FTC studies, instead of marking items at g or 9 cents, they .are evened off at a dime. $ e However, in order to pay for the stamps, the retailer must mark up the merchandise prices to cover this loss of 2% of his gross volume to the stamp firms. Actual studies show that the increase in prices to be somewhere around 1%%. , $ The difference, li is suspect- ed by the FTC, is made up by retailers pricing the less than a dime items up to an even dime in order that the extra profit on these items will make up for the  of 1%. The findings of the FTC when released should be interesting and should be a factor in the current study be- ing made of the growing spread between what farmers received for food and what the consumer pays for it. Whether or not this information will make consum- ers decide they would rather have lower prices than stmps remains to be seen.
