H. WASHBUEN- TPHERE'S an old saying 1 that while figures won't lie, liars 1 will figure. But figures, simply laid on the table without any explanation, do sometimes lie. Take the federal debt for instance. Under Mr. Roosevelt's administration it has just reached 27 billion dollars, which is actually higher than the war-time peak indebtedness, 2GVi billion—and observers therefore turn out columns of matter about the "crushing tax burden" necessary to sustain this "debt which is greater than that of the war." But the United States owes today actually mucl. 'ess than she owed at the peak of war-time indebtedness. In the first place population is much larger. In a larger nation the individual taxpayer's burden is less. In the second place the government is borrowing at a much lower rate of intcrst than 16 years ago; and therefore, regardless of the total figure, the actual burden of debt is lighter. XXX Te exact figures are interesting. In the current issue of the Liter- Civil War Again #• Menaces Cuba as ABC Party Splits Majority Group Votes to Throw Out President Carlo*' Mendieta TROUBLE IN PARIS "Judges of Hell" Renew Their Mailing List of Deadly Bombs HAVANA, Cuba. — (fp)— An internal fight in the powerful ABC political society, whose ranks were shat- tcrd by machine gun bullets last Sunday, split Cuba's cabinet Friday. The issue was coninucd support of the government headed by President Carlos Mendieta. AJter a lengthy meeting the directors of the society announced that they had agreed to withdraw tlu'r support "in principle" from the Men- dicta government. This was intrepret- ed as a victory for the group headed by Secretary of Education Jorge Manach and Treasury Secretary Joaquin Martinez Saenz. The group led by Carlos Saladrigas, Secretary of Justice and high in AB»J councils, however, insisted on backing the president. •It is the first major split in tho party's ranks. Bombings in Paris PARIS.Franee —(/P)— A 12th bomb was • founu* •*.-. the maib-JVidnyi -in- a sinister campaign of terror revived by "The Three Judges of Hell." After a several days' respite from bombs the police believed the criminal, whom they termed a madman, ad been scared off—but resumption ^^ the deliveries revived widespread .^car throughout the city Friday. The latest bomb was found at the postoffice with mail taken from a box in tho populous workers' district near the Place Voltaire. It was directed to a cafe owner. Authorities are convinces that an insane person brooding over the Sta- viski scandal is responsible for the fiendish campaign :n w'nlch sevral workers have thus far been injured.

The bottles will be manufactured under license and strict Treasury supervision; refilling them will be forbidden, just as re-use of tobacco containers is illegal and is liable to heavy penalty. Morgenthau said the step was "the most serious blow struck at the bootlegger since December 6," the date of repeal. He expressed that the move by aiding legitimate manufacturers would result in lower liquor prices. Each bottle will have blown into the glass the name or symbol of its manufacturer and the name or symbol of the dist'ller using it. Bottle manu- fecturers will be required to file with J^c Treasury u copy of every order re- "ccived, as a double check, distillers will have to file each order for containers they give the distillers will be issued only enough internal revenue liquor tax stamps to match the number of containers ordered. 13,000 Bales Are Allotted County by Bankhead Law Arkansas Placed Third Among Cotton States With 952,669 Bales TOTAL IS 10,460,251 Texas Given First Place, and Mississippi Second, in the South ary Digest I read: Charles B. Mcrrell explained in a recent New York Herald Tribune article that while the present national debt slightly tops that of 1919, the- net debt per capita this month is approximately 78 per cent of the net debt per capita in June, 1919. Because of the lower rale at which the government can borrow, the actual interest charges this year arc 70.8 per cent of those at the same period in 1919, while the per capita interest charge ig only about 59.G per cent of the 1919 figure. XXX Complaint reaches The Star that trash and garbage are once more being dumped along 16th htrect, although the city has frequently stopped this practice. The offenders seem to be professional haulers who do occasional work for local householders. Thu CWA'has jtrjt finibiiet5.tfipen.ding 54.500 to drain and grade 4nd gravel 16th street as a loop road 'for the City of Hope. The CWA hired half a dozen trucks for several days for tho sole-purpose of removing the original trash thrown along that street by garbage haulers. The City of Hope has a dumping ground. City police should arrest the vandals who are despoiling 16th street when a regular city dump is equally available.

OFF. WASHINGTON —(/P)— The amount of cotton which may be ginned in states and counties tax-free under the Bankhead compulsory cotton control act was announced by Secretary Wallace Thursday. The total 10,460,251 bales to which the administration hopes to limit this year's production was distributed among 1,000 counties in 19 states. Texas, the largest producing state, was allotted the largest quota. Ten 'per cent of each state quota was reserved for ! future distribution among farmers who may be left out by the allotment when counties begin distributing quotas a- mony individual producers. Cully A. Cobb, chief of the Cotton •Section, said the quotas were established after careful examination of each county's production record during the years from 1928 to 1932 and represented the maximum figures possible. Appeals Possible He added that if a county was dissatisfied with a quota the appeals might be taken to the administration within 15 days. The quotas were calculated in pounds and in terms of a standard weight bale of 478 pounds. Due to the fact that the Bankhead act specified 500-pound bales, an increase of 460,251 bales was made above the 10,000,000 bale limit sel in'the act. Within each county individual producers will be required to submit applications for allotments to the County Production Control Committee, showing their record of production during the base period. Blanks for such applications will be sent to the counties within a few days, Cobb said. After individual allotments are made farmers wiJl be issued tax exemption certificates for the number of bales in the allotment and at marketing time next fall farmers will be given bale tags for their allotments which must be attached before the cotton can be sold or shipped. All cotton produced in excess of the allotment will be subject to a. tax of 50 per cent of its market value when marketed and if sold must bear a tag indicating that such tax has been paid.
