As every mother of young children knows, the ubiquitous bubble gum does present some problems. This is especially true when the automatic wash- er becomes all gummed up due to failure to find a wad of the stuff in a pocket. * * * However, there is no known rec- ord of any mother making a Federal case of ;bubble gum. Prob- ably the fail- ure to do so has been a realization c.W. Harder by mother that eventually the youngster will mature beyond the bubble gum stage. . * * But now there is a grave question arising if this matur- ity will actnally work in this direction if junior should hap- pen to make a career on the Federal Trade Commission. * * * Recently th august FTC concluded a long study of bub- ble gum which was undoubted- ly most expensive to the tax- payers. The issue was whether one bubble gum manufacturer, having an exclusive contract so that only it could provide pictures of baseball stars with their product, was not in vio- lation of the antitrust laws. This question became one of major import, and required h(urs and hours of study by the staff of attorneys, gather- ing of evidence by staff inves- tigators, although it is  ")us] hoped that it was not deemed necessary for the FTC to sit around for hours chewi:J th stuff, to sort of get a feel of the subject, as it were. The stuff is difficult on false dentures. () National Federation of Independent Business However, bubble gum was spared the limelight of a full scale Federal case when it was finally determined that other bubble gum manufac- turers were able to offer pic- tures of other juvenile attrac- tions apart from the baseball diamond, and with great sol- emnity and proper protocol, the FT closed their files. Now it is perhaps comforting to realize that even bubble gum does not escape the scru- tiny of the United States gov- ernment. This fact should make everyone proud to pay taxes. But on the other hand, there can be a question raised as ta whether or not this sort of thing is the best possible usage of FTC time and talent. , * * At the present time, when mergers are creating monop- olies, when independent busi- ness firms are being severely damaged, if not ruined, by fail- ure to enforce the Robinson- Patman Act, there is question whether bubble gum should take precedence over these far more important matters. , * * Now of course, it is delight- ful and a most human touch to realize that the huge FTC complex could take the time to ascertain whether or not jun- ior is being unduly influenced in his choice of a brand of bubble gum. Perhaps it can be asserted by the FTC that as bubble gum goes, so goes the destiny of a nation. On the oth- er hand, this could be a rather sticky point of view to get across. Thus, it is to be hoped with this great matter out of the way, nothing else will come along to gum up the FTC ac- tions in really vital areas do require its attention. District Diredor of Internal Revenue Explains Sales Tax Dedudion Methods Wa, shington State taxpayers may use a state sales tax table as a guide,ine when preparing thei,r 1965 federal income tax retu,rns. Fr the first time since it was introduced in 1960, 'the able has been prined in the tax iastructions which are i mled to taxpayers, Neal S.
