O. P. chiefs would demand a tax in- ise when the congress meets next month. |jii£-'" As any student of political history knew, this Was bound "' *to> happen. The government, like niany of its cifeensj is . 'sjuffeiringfrom a deficit—and there must, and will be, an in|y crease in federal taxes. •- ' * , r The Republicans, with a business talent that overmasters s |c m6st distasteful political move, are resolved, therefore, to jfltobk the bear square in the eye; and by holding pleading their ^-""se;now, trust that by next fall the people will have forgot- t,;of forgiven. ^ They will do neither. A Republican administration is labout to go the way of some historic Democratic administra- ^ twins, so unfortunate as to be caught in a national panic. It :is;a political phenomenon that in ail history never has failed —-and if-this month's congressional elections are the political ^,augur that they have been in;.the past,, then the overturn "^scheduled for next year will be one bf^he^verest inrJlistoryJ By aH the signs of trade arid finance, America appears ? '"td be slowly beating her way back to prosperity—but it won't e, soon enough to save the G.' O. P. Even though it, were ,^--,- s today, still it could not stem the tide. There would still be the problem of 'explaining to the people the federal tax >*, increase which the congress must pass next.month, and which will be saddled onto the nation for the next several years, or 'for as long as the deficit shall continue. Only todajt are we beginning to get the full measure of settlei calamity that has befallen the G. 0. P., First a stock i"' -market panic, then the Suspension of manufacture and trade, "unemployment, a banking panic, and now^ just as the upturn f begins—^an increase in federal taxes. Although they were disclosed oiie'item at a time, still, they were merely chapters out ^ : of the same complete story. *.'. ""* * * f j ?( And , now, the 1932 campaign looms overwhelmingly ^Democratic because the Republican chiefs have cast the die v < for a taxi increase. And running true to form, they will ad*• vocate a sales tax to raise the living costs of every citizen— „ whilff'the Democrats, if they keep true to the faith, will find ' these revenues not in the necessities of life, but in heavier taxes upon the great incomes of the land.

On Being a Father A MEBipAN fathers are beginning to .take their responsi- f\ bilities seriously, according to a bulletin recently issued by the American Child Health Association. That is, they are actually studying, the job of being a father just as they would study any other job, and are trying to find out things about it by visiting their sons' schools, riding books and organizing study group?. Evidently Dad wants to make sure that he gives little Willie the best kind of break possible, and he is doing everything he can to bring to pass. Allgf this is more than passingly interesting; for to be fathfr of i small boy is to occupy one of the most ticklish itjonsr,that any human being can step into. •T'"*" '<•'./'•- '' The 8ma.{l*boy, you see, dwells in a world apart, and in world, i% (greatest of men is Dad.

Piccard Seeks Scientists For Stratosphere Flight BRUSSELS.— (IP)— Two unmarried, unengaged Belgian scientists are being sought by Professor Piccard to make a new trip into the stratosphere next spring. ' As much as he himself would like to go and carry further some of the work he began with his ascent lasi May, he feels that his family has firsl claim upon him and' he has promised Mms.

"Tht commission" has) "whether intentionally or otherwise, far -exceeded any authority possibly conferred upon it, and its decision . is so unwise, revolutionary, and un-American, 'as"lb demarid an immediate reversal of such position, or the resignation of the commission." Hunting for ^ GOLDEN JUBILEE Ancient Locomotive in Operation Again WASHINGTON—(/P)—Old "John Bull" first steam locomotive to pull passengers in the United States, marked its hundredth birthday Thursday by getting up steam and running—jacked up in the Smithsonian Institution. Spectators giggled as the "iron horse" responded to controls first operated November 12, 1831, at Bordentown, N. J. On that day, the newspapers reported the entire legislature and "a great many of the best people of New Jersey" saw the engine run IVi miles in two minutes and 22 seconds. The pioneer of the Camden and Amboy Railroad could pull a coach for only 30 people, and had to re! peat the trip many times. The old engine, which was built in England, puffed and sputtered for only a few minutes Thursday, but it repeated the performance avery half hour,.and will continue doing so until the first of next year.
