PARKLAND POST· NO. 228 AMERICAN LEGION Meetings every second and fourth Friday at 8:00 p.m. in the Sunshine Hall Tomorrow night the fair sex will reign supreme. (Not that they don't all the time, but this is sort of a special deal). We have several lady Legionnaires and arc mighty proud of them, too. They earned the right to full-fledged membership through service during the war in the many branches of the armed services that opened their ranks to women. We have found that the ladies of the Post arc our most willing and conscientious workers. Their . presence makes the meetings so much more interesting-gives the meeting a certain something that rounds out any discussion. Face it, men! The ladies' opinions and ideas are always new, interesting and constructive. Tomorrow night is Ladies' night and all former WA Cs, WAVES SPARS, Army and Navy Nurses and lady Marines arc cordially invited.

Since last your reporter sent 1Il a message, all the holiday activities have taken place. Notable were the several hospital visits on Christmas Eve, accompanied by gifts for every hospitalized veteran. Save for these gifts many veterans would have been completely ignored, and Christmas would have passed its weary way as the other three hundred sixty four days of his year. Instead, joy was on the face of each patient, and while tears glistened in many e~es -all were thankful for the gaily wrapped gift packages. "Not to be forgotten," as they were listening to Christmas carols over the air, put the finishing touch to their holiday season care. and proved that some folks

RE-INVEST EARNINGS IN NEW BONDS Individual holders of Government Savings Bonds, Series D-1939, which begin maturing January 1, 1949, may now re-in.vest the proceeds of these bonds in Series E Savings Bonds without regard to annual Jimitation. This announ~en1ent was ina<lc recently by Reno 0 cl 1 i n, Tacoma banker, and state chairman of the United States Savings Bond Division. "Holders of the 1939 D bonds may re-invest the earnings of their maturing bonds up to any amount that their maturities will fully cover," Odlin said.

The D bond series were issued by the Government between January 1939 and May 19+ l. Their sales to individual jnvestors during these years c x c e c cl c cl $1,000,000,000. They were the last in the "Baby Bond" Series, w h i c h started in March !935, when the A bond series were first sold to the public.

The pay-as-you-go system collects substantially the full tax of the average wage-earner by withholding a portion of his tax from each paycheck. Therefore, January 15 does not apply to him. The pay-as-you-go system requires others, especially farmers, business and professional people, investors, landlords, and certain wage-earners, to pay estimated tax (Form 1040-ES). January 15 is the last day for filing, amending, and p a y i n g estimated tax for these people. Since January 15 falls on Saturday this year, Monday, January 17, becomes the deadline for amending 1948 Declarations of Estimated Income and for paying the tax. Pure silks were the featured fabries when Dr. Frank Black, Nick Kenny, Milton Berle and Arthur Schwartz "Male-Tested" Fashions for Cosmopolitan magazine. The •jurors agreed that "silk can whisper, rustle, or sing," and then ''Oted this Stafford's foulard with white polka dots on green, slate or na '7 as a fashion prima donna of the month.
