The house passed this bill with a large majority but it died in the senate. Now I suggest that we pass this bill, which was estimated, to bring about $1,000,000, revenue, use $300,000 of the money for our Centennial next year, and the balance, and hereafter, to charity, the schools, and for the reduction of the property tax, as was provided in the bill. It seems to me that the people who make not income in the higher brackets would benefit most from the advertising gained by a Centennial. I would like to hear from members of the legislature on this suggestion. EMORY A. THOMPSON Representative, Hcmpstcnd County December 12, 1935 Fulton. Ark. XXX The Star supported Mr. Thompson's income tax bill from the beginning— and we feel that it offers a fair and sensible way to finance the Centennial celebration in the present emergency. It has this merit—that there is no political hokum in it It is a clear case of contracting for the expense of a Centennial celebration, and fixing upon the people n tax whose cost Is instantly apparent to each and every payer. However, we supported the original income tax program, not for Centennial purposes, but as part of a broad program of tax yeform. The income-tax is closely wrapped Ethiopia peace. to Italy in exchange for The League also received a protest from Mussolini asserting that the Ethiopians are abusing the use of the Red Cross emblem. U. S. Continues Neutrality WASHINGTON —(/I 5 )— A continun- lion in some form or other of the temporary neutrality law will be proposed in the next congress by the president. up -with. th When the com. mon' people 'have Mo\ pay 4 a" flat percentage on the purchase of the necessities of life, then it is fair and just that the better-salaried people pay a graduated income tax, which under the present law amounts to practically nothing. The purpose of this tax reform, of course, is to afford relief to the payers of taxes on real property, particularly the small farm and homestead. Land tax relief means the stimulation of ownership of homes and farms. He told his press conference Friday j I( is » ba - sic editorial policy of The that the present neutrality law ex- Star. pires next February. Obviously he is trying to get something to take its place. He said it would be a couple of weeks before his proposal on neutrality would be put into final form. He said Thursday's talk with the Navy high command related to a discussion ol increasing the nnvul reserves. GENEVA, Switzerland.—(/P)—Diplomats of Great Britain and France shunted the problem of war or peace in Africa back to the Lcuguu of Nations Thursday.

I have often quoted that letter which C. P. J. Mooney, great editor of the Memphis Commercial Appeal, wrote me August 17, 1926, just 60 days before he died. It is framed, and hangs at tho entrance to Tlic Star building. Written nine years ago, it i.s prophetic, when it says: "I don't care anything about the rich and the powerful. I do have an ambition to do something for thu common every flay man. I am interested in the young, therefore, I am fighting for the tobacco tax on education. I want to see America so that our people will remain on their Tfind. Our industrial development is separating tno many of our people into industrial pursuits.

Vasaholm, Docked at New Orleans A "visitor" arriving in Hope Friday partly explains why it is that the Norwegian countries almost alone out of all the nations of the world have managed to pay their war debts due the United States. The "visitor" is a 21-ton carload of newsprint—the paper that feeds The Star's big newspaper press—and it came direct from Olso, Norway. ,It was shipped across the Atlantic in the S. S. Vasaholm, docked in New Orleans early this week, and arrived in Hope Friday on the L. & A. Railway. The Star uses between 45 and 50 tons of paper a year. The Star's management had been somewhat nervous over the coast-wise shipping strike on the Gulf ports, but was advised that deep-sea cargoes from Europe would be handled all right, the strike being directed at "local" shipping only. Finland, Norway and Sweden have the oldest paper-making industry in the world, although \tlie Canadian spruce forests probably lead the world in actual production. The Star's pros- ent "sheet" is a Minnesota-Canadian product. The last of the month the newspaper will switch over to the new product, manufactured by Norwegian Newsprint Makers, Ltd., Olso, Norway. Olso, Norway—? The name will fool you. It's no mo.-e fishing town. But it's tho new name for Christiania or Kristianiu, capital of Norway, population (1929) 250,000. about the size of Memphis.
