Drills Given by Aero Squadron Mem
bers Evoke Applause.
To the rhythmic tramp, tramp of 150
pairs of Army boots worn by stalwart
soldiers of Uncle Sam's Army, three
platoons of the 412th Aero Construc
tion Squadron of Vancouver Barracks
went through one of the finest and
most creditable drills possible last
nlKht In tbe Auditorium.
The drill waa the feature of the big
military dance given by the Signal
Corps, Spruce Production Division, for
the benefit of their mess and other
funds. Fully 2000 persons attended the
affair, and repeatedly burst into loud
applause and cheers as the squadron
went through their drill, under com
mand of Lieutenant T. M. Thomas.
They also went through a whistle
drill in an equally creditable manner.
The finale waa an effective closing,
two buglers standing against the
American flags at the back of the stage
sounded taps as the lights In the
Auditorium were dimmed and a spot
light showed the Stars and Stripes be
ing lowered. Thla waa followed by
the audience singing "The Star-
Spangled Banner."
Another pretty feature of the affair
was the grand march, led by Lieu
tenant-Colonel and Mrs. Van Way,
Colonel and Mrs. Brice P. Dlsque. The
march was resplendent with dozens of
girls, attired In Red Cross nurses' uni
forms and caps, members of the elec
trical union, who are called upon fre
quently to attend military dances
partner for the soldiers. There also
were a number of well-known Port
land and Vancouver women In smart
evening toilettes. The balance of the
evening waa devoted to dancing.

Figures Greatly Increased in
Latest Estimates on Income,
Excess Profits Levies.
Request for Installment Method Re
ceived With Some Favor by Com
missioner Roper Rich Men
Praised for Patriotism.
WASHINGTON. April 11. Recent re
ports from revenue collectors indicate
that the Government may receive from
Incomes and excess profits taxes in
June much more than the $2,600,000,000
estimated. Some estimates, based on
preliminary examination of returns
filed ten days ago, run as high as
If these calculations of big collec
tions are borne out by further exami
nation of returns within the next two
weeks, the Treasury may recommend
legislation toprovide for installment
payment of taxes, probably on June 15,
August 15 and October 15... The Treas
ury's decision on this question also de
pends largely on the success of the
liberty loan in the next week or ten
A delegation of the National Confer
ence of State Manufacturers' Associa
tions, accompanied by members of
Congress, today appealed to Internal
Revenue Commissioner Roper for the
establishment of a system to ease the
financial burden on business In June.
Roper GIvea Eneooraajrmenr.
Ur. Roper promised that the Treas
ury would grant the request If the
conditions of Government finances
made it possible and advisable. Here
tofore both Secretary McAdoo and Mr.
Roper have expressed themselves
opposed to the plan.
The liberty loan would be stimulated
by making It possible for business con
cerns to pay their taxes In install
ments, the manufacturers declared.
Under the present rule many feel that
they are financially unable to buy lib
erty bonds for resale to employes and
at the same time make arrangements
for the tax outlays In June.
CHICAGO, April 11 Some men are
paying aa high as $30,000,000 income
tax in the United States, according to
Charles A. Eaton, head of the National
service section of the United States
Shipping Board and Emergency Fleet
Some Pay Thirty Million.
The statement waa made In the
course of an address here today. The
stenographic report of his remarks
quotes him aa follows:
There are men In this Nation today
paying five millions, ten millions and
some as high aa 30 millions of dollars
in income taxes to the Government,
and I have yet to hear from these men
the first objection, the first squeal.
They are patriotic. They walk up and

Conservation to Be Practiced csrennij
. fcy College; Men and Women W
Draw Up Rules.
Corvallis, April 11. (Special.) Drastic
action on the Question of food conser
vation was taken at a special meeting
of fraternities, sororities and clubs of
Oregon Agricultural College last night.
Binding rules were drawn up by the
students and each pledged the support
of his organization to the measures.
The result probably will be that the
soda fountain and candy counter of the
co-operative store owned and operated
by the students will be closed, for the
students pledged themselves to use no
candy, soft drinks or sodas. This meas
ure will also mean that no downtown
stores carrying confectionary will ne
visited by these students.
The meeting was tne resun or a pa
triotic move on the part of a number
of the bovs and girls to really conserve.
Public sentiment will be the determin
ing factor in the new regime and stu
dents found not living up to their
pledge will be looked upon as slackers
to their country.
The list of substitutions and ail ac-
tion taken was first submitted to the
home economics department ana a
carefully balanced supply of foods ar
ranged so that no one might suffer.
All action is absolutely voluntary on
