Whitcomb Reviews Industry Problems
TTriT* +Vna -kx-i .-'U«.v 4- J! #.
For the first time in years, the tex
tile industry’s concern over imports “is
understood and recognized by the White
House.” There is, for the first time, a
“real probability of relief.”
So stated Harold W. Whitcomb, board
chairman of Fieldcrest Mills and re
tiring president of the American Tex
tile Manufacturers Institute (ATMI).
Mr. Whitcomb spoke March 20 at the
group’s annual meeting at Hollywood
Mr. Whitcomb said that President
Nixon had taken a firm stand on the
problem of textile imports and the
President was “convinced that our case
merits special attention and relief.”
Imports in 1968, he said, reached a
record level of 3.3 billion square yards,
or 28 per cent above 1967. Mr. Whit
comb pointed out that during the past
three years the deficit in texile trade
has amounted to 56 per cent of the na
tion’s total unfavorable balance of pay
He said accusations that the industry
engages in racial discrimination in em
ployment are “unfounded.” The accusa
tions were made by civil rights leaders
and others following a controversy over
the Defense Department’s awarding of
contracts to Southern textile interests.
There were charges that the firms
discriminated against minority groups
in hiring and promoting employees.
“It is a great tragedy,” he said, “that
some of the big-city press has dealt so
irresponsibly with this subject.
“The textile industry has made great
progress in adding Negro workers,” he
said, adding: “There are reliable figures
to prove it in all of the southern textile
He declared that “major legislation
dealing with farm programs this year
becomes less likely with each passing
week. The current law expires with the
1970 crop. But we must be constantly
alert to and prepared to counter opposi
tion to a continuing one-price cotton
system”—the procedure which insures
that American mills can buy American
grown cotton at the same price at which
it is sold to foreign companies.
“Absolutely essential to cotton’s fu
ture market position is the maintenanc
of a competitive, one-price system,” hr

Deadline Approaching For Filing Income Tax
Only about two weeks are left for fil
ing income tax returns. Hastily pre
pared returns are more likely to have
errors, so if you haven’t filed your in
come tax returns aJ yet, here is a
check-list to follow:
1. Be sure to add the surtax. This
has been causing the greatest problem
so far, according to the Internal Rev
enue Service. If your regular tax is less
than $734, you do not have to figure
the surtax yourself—a table listing the
amount you must pay is in the IRS
2. Use the correct tax table—both for
figuring regular tax and for the sur
tax. The instruction booklet will tell
you which table to use if you are in
3. Check arithmetic.
4. Attach W-2 forms from all em
5. Sign your return. Both husband
and wife must sign a joint return.
6. Print or type your name, address
and zip code on the form.
7. Total your deductions if you item
ize them on page 2.
8. Bist your Social Security number
correctly. Both husband’s and wife’s
number should be reported on the joint
Remember that for income tax pur
poses a wife is never a dependent of
her husband. The exemption allowed
her is based upon the marital relation-

of Morehead High School sponsoring

The goal for this visit is 275 pints.
Guy Buckle, chairman of the Blood
Program said, “The response in Feb
ruary eliminated much of the winter
shortage, but we are not out of the
woods yet. We need as much public
support as we can get for this April
visit in order to put us in good shape.”
The Bloodmobile will be stationed at
Morehead Memorial Hospital, and the
hours will be 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
