HOW CAN YOU MANAGE YOUR MONEY TO PAY LESS TAX?

Basically, there are two very good ways to reduce your taxes --by making your income taxable at lower rates, or by making less of your income subject to tax.

TAXES: ARE YOU GETTING YOUR MONEY'S WORTH?

More than a quarter of our national income today goes toward community purchasing of government services, ranging from space shots to sewage treatment. About three-fifths of our tax money is gathered and spent by the National Government, most of it from corporate and personal income taxes. The remaining two-fifths is taken in by state and municipal governments from a bewildering variety of sources, such as real estate taxes, sales taxes, fees, use taxes, and personal property levies.

MAP YOUR OWN HAWAIIAN HOLIDAY

For more than 30 years a weekly radio program-- "Hawaii Calls"-- has been beamed to the outside world from Honolulu.

WINTER DRIVING PROBLEMS THAT CAN HAPPEN ANYWHERE

Hazardous winter driving conditions are not limited to just those states with heavy snowfall and extremely cold temperatures. In fact, drivers often get into trouble when the temperatures hover at or slightly below freezing and in areas where snow and ice are seldom encountered. The motorist who does most of his driving on roads that are free of ice or snow is a likely prospect for serious trouble when he becomes involved in a situation which the bulk of his driving experience hasn't taught him to handle.

No plant expresses the Christmas season as beautifully as the poin- settia, no matter how it is dis played. Here, we have created three settings with the new dwarf poinsettia which has near-normal- size blooms on very short stems. These little plants, which have been dwarfed chemically, allow more versatility in your arrange ments, and cost little if any more than the standard kinds. You can buy both at a florist shop.
