Another Point of View On the ether hand, "The Times" ed* itorially applauds the Idea of a loan rather than taxation, declaring: "The new obligation should be discharged with the least possible interference with the ideal of gradually reducing the burdens of taxation. This consideration suggests that the cost should be met by a loan." Other critics stoutly maintain that the best method would be a 10-year defense loan with a heavy sinking fund rather than a long-term loan which would carry the burdens of taxation to generations unborn.

HOME.—The world has scon wnrs of conquc&t, wars fought in the name of religion, wars in defense of monarchies or democracies—and Wars to end wars. Now the Irind of Mussolini (so Mr. Average Italian believes) is waging a war to lower the High Cost of Living. Mr. A. I., in talks I have had with him here and elsewhere in the country, usually has expressed the conviction that the conquering and colonization of Ethiopia by tlaly will bring him a greater degree of personal property, swell his savings, heap high his market basket. All this, because Ethiopia Would j represent an outlet for Italy's swollen population and n new source for sorcly- | needed raw products. | In present-day Italy, when Mr. A. I. sits down to lunch in a restaurant or j when friend wife shows him the bills from the butcher or the grocer, he is made to realize that the High* Cost of Living is a serious matter. Taking the wholesale price index for 1913 as 100, the prices reigning in the last week in June and July, 1935 respectively were as follows: June July Vegetables 372.65 363.81 Animal food 333.17 326.94 Chemical products 294.85 303.01 Textile materials 186.31 192,60 Minerals and metals 360.92 364.86 Building materials 354.96 358.40 "No, m'sieur," answered the actress with a wan. smile,'"I have not breakfasted, pri the cbntrary."- L Screen Play.

In the retail markets the prices of meat, eggs, olive oil, vegetables and fruit showed a slight increase while the price of wheat flour came down, owing to a ' good home wheat crop. : However, in spite of'the 'fact v that Italy was drifting into war. 1935 showed no such peak of high'cost'of living "as did 1927. Taking that year's figures,as. 100, the cost of living in Italy in June, 4935, 'was'".found to be 71.95. Economic sanctions by the League of Nations may increase this- figure. Taxes also come' : as a preoccupation to the .people, as they do to every nation in the world. The tax is imposed pretty low down in the -scale too. Earnings not exceeding 2000 lire per year;.arp cx : exempt f r.o m taxation. That is roughly about S170 per year. Contrary to what is thought in Arner- ica, many workers in various trades get .far.more than this. To take just a few examples: Skilled tailors work a 48-hour week and get lire 2.75 per hour, while partially skilled ones draw two lire. That's for men. For women, the skilled ones get 1.60 and the partly skilled ones 1.20. ..In the shoe factories men workers of the first class get 2.50 lire per hour, others getting -2.25 and 1.35. Women of the first class get 1.80 lire, others getting 1.45 and 1.00. They work the 48-hour week. In the silk weaving trade, men draw from 2.15 to 1.95 lire per hour-and women from 1.35 to 1.05 for a 48-hour week. • .-,.'.- '• It.is often represented in the outside world that the bulk of the taxes go for the.building of Italy's big army, navy and air force. But the talian town dweller will tell you a different story. :< • In -the first place, the Fascist regime, to cope with the rising population and the need of modern housing, has torn down many old .rookeries and erected in their places workers' flats, which are modern, comfortable and reasonably cheap in rent. They compare favorably with what has been done in this way in other European countries. The regime has also gone in for new, modern, bright school buildings where there are gymnasiums, swimming pools, decent lavatories, offices where medical and dental work is done, and hospitals where the nceds^ of the sick are well looked after. Fascism also introduced another thing which the Nazis copied, as they slavishly copied so much else. There is an organization known as the "Do- polavoro/' Literally it means "After work." Workers and their families by joining .it get reduced prices at theaters, movies, etc. Then, too, the state, owning the railways, has introduced the so-called "trcni popolarl"—people's trains. For a very moderate sum, indeed, often amounting to from 50 to 70 per cent less than the regular prices, people can buy round-trip tickets on ! ihese trains taking them anywhere in Italy. The idea is to help the people to j take cheap holidays and also to encourage them to get to know their owri I country. ... i And now, at war, Italy piles up a new mountain of debt. But Mr. Avora'ge I :talian tells me that the war in Ethiopia is a good investment. • i If and when the flag of Fascism flies over Ethiopia, that land—so Mr. A.. I. Is told and so he believes—will be a new land of opportunity. He feels that though his children and his children's children may be taxed heavily to pay j ior this war, they will have more money with which to pay those same taxes eaust* sentimentality has obscured the i fact that few of them give us much j study 16 their jobs as a bricklayer i does to his trade. Our new organization Intend* to offer Scientific train-' trig to such mothers as develop the | expected conscience twinge," That is* what these experts say, j By scientific training they do not I mean baking a perfect ginger cookie or rolling a neat bandage merely. Such things are Important. Plenty of mothers don't know the mechttnical tricks of thcif trade. However, the deep, and vital comprehension of her role as n potter with plastic human material to mold, is woman's biggest problem. Child Bearing Not Enough To bear a child Is not to acquit oneself creditably of 'the obligations of motherhood. Certainly the degree of graciousncss and bravery with which a woman accepts this ordeal is important, but It is only the beginning Mothers need wisdom, tact, understanding and sympathy in larger degree than other women do. Mother.' deal With children, who turn to their ns the gods of young destinies, children who have no backgrounds of their owh against which to make comparisons and therefore must rely on the experiences and kindness of their mothers, The group of men and women who are sponsoring this much needed society say further: "There has developed a sizeable group of women who. ] because they have managed to have offspring,-'merely .rest' on their laurels and-expect to be. supported, revered and loved for that accomplishment alone." • '. • It Is so much nonsense.

Women who think that four walls to shut away the rain, three meals n day with orange juice and custards and vegetable plates at , their expected times, n story-telling | hour, and hot baths every night are the sum total of their contribution to their children has failed at motherhood. All these are most necessary, of course, but they are not enough. Men go to scientific agricultural schools to learn how to care for cattle.

AND A New Dealer for HOPE amount on its own capital. •Exempt From Ttnres Senator McKellar also brought out that the co-operatives are exempt from federal taxes as an association. "So, in dealing in cotton, you have the advantage over your competitors of paying no taxes, borrowing al Hhe money you want at reasonable—very reasonable rates, and your capital was paid in by the government—and yet you want the government to pay your losses again?" Creekmore replied that the co-operatives lost a total of $20,500,000 because of the operation of the Cotton Stabilization Corporation in 1929-30. He added that the government lost $107,000,000 in those stabilization operation;:, but added, "It was money that went to the farmers and the trade VifS undoubtedly benefited by the co- jcps holding off their 1,300,000 bales at | that time." [ The ACCA contends that if its member agencies had not been drafted by the old Farm Board in 1929 in its stabilization efforts, and removed its 1.300,000 bales from the market in the IB-cent pegging program, the co-ops would have cmurged financially solvent. Reviews Financial Affairs E. F. Creekmorc- testified that $5,021,803.44 in equities and patronage dividends had been distributed in cash during the four-year period ending June 30, 1935. He taid that capital and surplus from earnings withheld from final settlements with members were increased during the period $2,426,286.60 of which $1,128,350 had been distributed in stock patronage dividends, $319,441.88 in cash patronage dividends, and the remaining $978,494.72 held as surplus. Creekmorc testified that the ACCA handled for the government, including the stabilization operation, 1,240,035 bales of cotton in 1930-31 at a cost to the government of $531.710.32, 3,087,906 bales in 1931-32 at a cost of $907,902, and 4,205.895 bale.; ir, 1932-33 at u cost of $"!83,032. in the following two years ended j'unp 30, 1935, it handled AAA Com- By = Helen Welsbimer Every woman is no more qualified to be a mother than she is qualified to be an actress or run a tea room.

Administration, had testified 'hat the government actually saved 55,430,607 by having the ACCA handle »he stabilization cotton. Creekmore added that much of the ?ott->n had been reconcentrated, it 'nad been put into warehouses where rates were lower, and in general the government had been rendered a service at a very low cost. Senator McKellar commented that adding the cost of the cotton handling to the $1.000,000 a year the senator estimated the co-ops made by borrowing government money at a low rate »nd loaning it to subsidiaries at a two per cent spread would give the ACCA a five-year income of more than $8,000,000. Creekmore denied making $1,000,000 a year on the interest and asked permission to submit exhibits .showing money-lending operations.
