Commissioner of Internal
Revenue Issues Rulings
Upon .Their Sales
Washington, May s.—Taxes im
posed under the new revenue act
upon sales by manufacturers, pro
ducers and importers, on the sales
of works of art and jewelry and
on transportation were explained by
Commissioner of Internal Revenue
Roper in a series of rulings just
made public.
The tax on sales by a manufac
turer, producer or importer, the
oommisioner has ruled, is payable
directly by him or his agent and is
measured by the price for which the
article is sold and not on the list

sales price The tax is payable on a
sale whether or not the purchase

counts for cash or made subse
quently to the sale, may not be de
ducted. If an article is increased
In price to cover the tax, the tax is
on the increased price.
The manufacturers' taxes cover a
number of articles including auto
mobiles, parts and assessories musi

For Skin Tortures
Don't worry about eczema or other
skin troubles. You can have a clear,
healthy skin by using Zemo, obtained
at any drug store for 35c, or extra large
bottle at SI.OO.
Zemo generally removes pimples,
blackheads, blotches, eczema and ring
worm and makes the skin clear and
healthy. Zemo is a clean, penetrating,
antiseptic liquid, neither sticky nor
greasy and stains nothing. It is easily
applied and costs a mere trifle for each
application. It is always dependable.

Injures Many Others and
Starts Panic Among
By .Associated Press,
Trenton, N. J., Xlay s.—The falling
of a ventilating window and sash
weighing three or four hundred
pounds from the roof of St. Mary's
1 Roman Catholic Cathedral, a distance
of 75 feet, into the crowded church
yesterday afternoon at a women's
mission, killed one woman, injured
more than a score of others and
started a near-panic among the wor
shipers. Miss Mary Kennedy, aged
40, of 135 Chancery street, the dead
woman, sustained a broken neck and
a fractured skull. Six others were
taken to hospitals. Michael Camp
bell, an usher who acting for the sex
ton, William Xlaher, attempted to
open the window when it crashed in,
collapsed after the accident and was
placed under medical care. He re
peatedly accused himself of murder.
First aid in the way of bandages
and appliances were rushed from Are
headquarters nearby and many of
the injured were being cared for
when a number of physicians arrived.
There were about 1,500 women in
the church and many fainted. A
section of pews was covered with
the blood of the injured. The mis
j sion was being conducted by the
. Vincentian Fathers of Germantown,
I and the priests by their coolness pre
vented a wild stampede In the
City Building Inspector Hancock,
after an examination of the fallen
window, which was made of heavily
leaded glass, said that there was 110
defect in it or its attachment and
gave as his opinion that the wire
opening had been pulled hard enough
to force it off its hinges.

Preliminary Arrangements
Made For Organizing Child
Welfare Bureau
Warnings that the health of the
country's children is endangered by
the war, and that it is necessary
for every city, town and community
in the United States to take im
mediate measures for child welfare
work, were sounded by Miss Sallie
lamas Jean, child welfare worker
from New York city, who addressed
a public meeting held in the Board
of Trade Auditorium Saturday
evening. Approximately 200 people
were in attendance.
"In all of the warring countries
the health of the children has al
ready shown distinct marks of de
terioration, due to war conditions,"
said Miss Jean. "Our own country is
no exception. The physical impair
ment of tho corning generation is
one of the most disastrous by-pro
ducts of the Great War, and one
of those after-effects, once estblish
ed, can never be fully undone.
"The ending of the war does not
end tho danger. These after-effects
can, however, be prevented, and the
teachers of the country can make a
big contribution to this work of pre
vention. One of the best methods is
to establish classes in the public
school in which the children are
ta.ught how to take care of them
selves physically as well as mental
ly. In cities where this system has
been adopted, the children show as
much interest in these classes as
they do in their regular school
work. They are as anxious to make
100 per cent, in health as in arith
metic, geography, etc."
Col. Edward Martin, State Com
missioner of Health, in a brief ad
dress promised his co-operation
with the plan and Mayor Daniel L.
Keister said he was willing to help
in any way.
Dr. Dorothy Hilds superintendent
of the child welfare division of the
State Health Department and Lieu
tenant J. H. Atkinson were other
speakers. D. J. M. J. Baunick, city
health officer was chairman of the
A second meeting will be held

bureau here, will be taken.

The story came out of Paris before
the armistice was signed that General
Gourard, the veteran
Jim Europe French commander of
anil His 1870. who made himself
Juxz lland so effective in the late
war, would'nt leave Aix
les Rains while the band of the Three
Hundred and Sixty-ninth Infantry
was there. The old hero of two wars
liked to listen to the jazz music of
the famous band of the "Hell Fight
ers," and he liked it so well that he
made his headquarters wherever the
band happened to be quartered. Lieu
tenant James Rees Europe, the fight
ing bandmaster of the famous colored
organization, will be here at the Or
pheum Wednesday, matinee and night,
to show why General Gourard and the
whole French nation went wild over
the band.
During fifteen months In the fight
ing zone. Lieutenant Europe's band
was detailed at various times to
lighten the spirits of the men In the
trenches, the wounded men in hos
pitals, the men on leavo from the
front, and the people that stayed at
heme. They were detailed at Paris
for a period when complaint came
from the actual fighting front that
the bovs for whom the hand was or
jgantzed were lonesome for their own
I musi; and were tired of the brand ba
ling doled out by other hands. General
Pershing had made the detail and
many soldiers and civilians who were
in Paris tried to convince him that
the joy-givin- usicians were neces
sary to the mi.rule of the French capi
It was General Gourard that car
ried the petition to the American
commander and convinced him that
ihe band should be sent back to the
bovs that were on the firing lines.
Tbev did return to the front and were
greeted by the "dough bovs" in such
fashion that Europe said that when
ever his band was sent away he
would rf main to take his place behind
a machi I • gun. the position he origi
nally enlisted for. Lieutenant Europe
was drafted but once. He entered the
service as a volunteer, despite his
reputation as a musician, and was
steadily plugging away at a machine
gun when Colonel Haywood found him
and drafted him from the ranks to or
ganize and direct a band. Later lie
entered an officers' school and receiv
ed his commission.
The band numbers sixty-five men,
and while the program will contain
jazz music, played as only colored
musicians can handle the syncopated
melodies, there will he selections cal
culated to display the abilities of the
hand to the fullest.
As Vert Rloom said recently in the
New York Telegram: "I don't think
we can dislike jazz music after we

If France, which of all countries in
