Treasury authorities estimated this
week that income tax collections this
month will total $500,000,000- the
largest September collections since
l'.rjii and about $140,000,000 over Sep
tember a year ago.
Income taxes-may be paid in. four
installments on the 15th of March,
June, September, and December. Many
corporations and wealthy individuals
take advantage of this provision to
save interest on their money.
Officials said their estimate for this
month was based on collection trends
established since the 19li( revenue act
went into effect. This law increased
levies on upper-bracket individual in
comes and imposed the controversal
tax on undistributed corporate profit.

No Tall Weeds For
Chicago's Vacant Lots
Chicago isn't all built up yet, not
by any means. Ti;ll weeds flourish in
so many vacant lots there that the city
council recently ruled that owners
must mow them down before they
reach a height of -30 inches, on penalty
of a fine of from $5 U $100. High
weeds are a traffic hazard, declared
the alderman who introduced the or-
dinace. Besides that, they make in
roads on cultivated land which Chi
cago boasts of owning within its city-limits.-
