Chairman Kltchin tonight explained
that the committee had referred Its
decision In favor of an excess profits
tax of 40 to CO per cent after $3000
exemption and 8 per cent deduction to
the Treasury for Its approval. He said
the committee also had communicated
to the Treasury Its action in apportion
ing business into three classes for pre
war earnings deduction.
The committee has adopted a provi
sion that In no event will the excess
profits tax of corporations having less
than $$0,000 capitalisation exceed 40
per cent of Its net Income. An effort
will be made next week to apply the
same provision to the war profits tax.

Use Cocoanut Oil
for Waihing Hair
If you want to keep yonr hair In good
condition, be careful what you wash It
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali. This dries the
calp. makea the hair brittle and is very
harmful. Just plain mulslfled cocoanut
oil (which Is pure and entirely grease
lees) la much better than the most ex
pensive soap or anything else you can
use for shampooing, as thia can't pos
sibly injur the hair.
Simply moisten your hair with water
and rub it in. One or two teaspoonfuls
will make an abundance of rich, creamy
lather, and cleanses the hair and scalp
thoroughly. The lather rinses out easily,
and removes every particle of dust,
dirt, dandruff and excesaiv OIL The
hair dries quickly and evenly, and it
leaves It fine and silky, bright, fluffy
and easy to manage.
You can get mulslfled cocoanut oil at
most any drug store. It is very cheap,
and a few ounces is enough to last
everyone In the family for months.

Plateau la Captured.
Marshal Foch has at last definitely
connected the battles of the Aisne and
the Somme. Announcement is made
that, by a local attack, the plateau
north of Autreches, about 10 miles
northwest of Soiasona, has been car
rled by the Frsnch, and that their suc
cess gives them a position dominating
the region extending northward toward
he Olse River.
The attack, while local In character,
must have had plenty of power to carry
as far ahead as is Indicated in dis
patches. If the whole plateau north
of Autreches has been taken from the
Germans, the French have advanced
upwards of a mile In that direction.
