Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washbum™—• Caution Needed in Drafting a Use Tax You read on this page Saturday a Little KOCK dispatch reporting that the legislative Committee on Revenues and Taxation is considering plugging up some of lhe loopholes in ihe stum sales tax with a "use tax." The idea of a use. - v ax for Arkansas originated with this newspaper—naturally enough, since we were one of two daily papers winch lought for enaeunent of Uie slate sales tax. When you put a 2 per cent tax on consumer goods sold by retailers living insult- 01 Arkansas you automatically try to tlo something about collecting the same tax on goods sold outside of Arkansas lor delivery within our boundaries. But this is a tough problem. It was this correspondent, however who spotted the solution in a United States Supreme Court decision about 10 years ago. The state of Iowa had levied a use tax against oulsidc shippers to Iowa points, equivalent 10 the states sates tax collected against Iowa merchants —and the united States Supreme Court upheld the law. Since both the sales tax and the proposed use tax have the same fundamental purpose, to provide revenue for the public schools and public welfare agencies, we launched an editorial campaign lor enactment of a use tax. But the attempt to write this idea into law has been a record ol complete disaster. The Arkansas Education Association took up the campaign but was soundly beaten at the polls. Another use "tax proposal came up in the 1947 legislature, and that was defeated also. Now, it seems to me, is the time lo in row out personal errors ol judgment and get down to bed- rocK principles—writing a use tax proposal that will be as fair and just as the sales lax itself, and WiU there-lore gain lhe same strength at the polls and the same continued support alter enactment Where the AEA went its use tax proposal this— instead of confining th to the same field oi consumed goods covered by the sales tax. it sought to make lhe use tax apply to capital goods winch are covered by the ad valorem tax under personal property assessments. For instance, the AEA proposal attempted to fix a 2 per cent use tax on the machinery bought by every country sawmill, notwithstanding the fact that a sawmill's machinery, like the machinery of a newspaper or any other manufacturing plant, is subject to personal property assessment and the aci valorem tax rate. The extent lo which this tax error would have damaged Arkansas industry, had it been enacted, will be realued wnon you consider the fact that a new factory selling up here with say a million-dollar plant would pay lirst a !j>20,000 use lax ana Inen pay all the rest of its existence the regular ad valorem tax that other property, pays. In other words, the AEA error would have committed Arkansas to a ruinous policy of double taxation—Soak the people who are in the risk-business of employing labor and manufacturing goods, Out let off the investing class (owners of real estate and securities} with -merely the ad valorem tux. . A use tax should be enacted — but this time lei's get ignorance and prejudice out of .he picture. School folks have no right to call the turn on taxation, not being in business thcinseives and therefore understanding neither business nor taxation.

Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shcck, taking note of the crisis which threw open all north China to the Communist threat, called on the people to prepare for another eight years of war. The nationalist government is determined to fight on against communism despite the military reverses which lost Manchuria and opened the way for three Communists armies reported marching toward Nanking. Government reports said Communist units which infiltrated through the great wall had begun feeler attacks in east Hopei province in what may signalize a big battle for north China. Twenty thousand Communist troops were reported to have reached Funing, 20 miles east of Chiangwantgao. Both Funing and Yuticn were some score of miles south of the groat wall. Military quarters reported that the Funing thrust appeared to be aimed at cutting the Peiping-Muk- den railway and outflanking the Nationalist defenders at Shanhaik- wwan, the great wall pass.

Nov. 8 — (/P)—Almost complete returns today gave Gen. Charles Do Gaulle's anti-Communist rally of the French people I RPF) a sweeping victory in yesterday's elections _to the upper House of the French Parliament. The Communists, present majority party in the council of the republic, lost more than four- filths of their scats and will be a low-ranking party in the new council. The returns showed that the RPF, taking part in a legislative election for the first time, will have'about 40 per cent of the 209 soots at stake yesterday. The colonies will elect another 51 members next month, brining the new council to its full strength of 320.

The "bomb," according to the author, \vas a plan to get a pledge noni a decisive majority ol Democratic candidates for Congress that they would vote to make goood the President's promise to repeal the Tatt-Hurtley Law as soon as the 81st Congress met. 'lhe plan, says l\1r. Drummond, was fit-signed to solidify a rather api'thelic labor vote behind Mr. Truman, and to give the country an exhibition of Democratic unity. It failed, he stales, when lhe President could not get enough votes to back him up. If this story is true—and it would be a rellection on Mr. Drummond's well-known ability and integrity to think ulhenvise—the failure can cause no particular surprise. It would have been a dramatic political gesture, at least at the beginning. But it would have bt_en dramatic principally because lii'j leaders of labor unions a.'i.i their publicitsts have done un amazingly thorough job of negative pre.ss- agentry on that law.

Medals were presented winners in the different competitions as wns announced last week at the Achievement Banquet. A personal introduction of all winners was made over KXAU by Leo House, Farm Program Director of the radio station. 'lhe greatest thing that any boy or girl can do is to become a leader in the community advised speaker Ed Thrash, Chamber of Commerce Agricultural Chairman and Tol-E-Tcx Company Manager. "We cnnnot amount to much within ourselves. Every 4-H Club boy and girl to become an unselfish true leader must learn to help others", stated Mr. Thrash. The Achievement exercises were presided over by Miss Billy Jo Hulsey of Washington. Hershel Scwell o£ Blevins, Secretary of the Hempstead County 4-H Club Council called the roll of clubs. Each community 4-H Club president introduced fellow officers, leaders, and members in attendance.

Youth Goes Forecast Even Chair Smiling Bellcfonte, Pa.. Nov. 8 — (UP) — Daniel P. Taranow, 23, of New York, a bridegroom of 60 hours, died smiling and joking in the electric chair at Rockview penitentiary today for the hitch-hike slaying of a motorist. "Make this strap tighter, will you?" was Taranow's last comment as he sal in the electric chair flexing his right arm and waiting for the charge. It came al 1.2:33 1-2 a. m. He was pronounced dead two minutes later. Taranow was executed for the confessed slaying of Francis Devon 23, a motorist who gave him a ride. The slaying occurred near Media, Pa., July 9, 1947. Taranow was permitted to marry auburn-haired Stella Noto of I Brooklyn last Friday in order to give a name to their nine-month- old daughter. The ceremony— brief and joyless — was perlormed in the office' of Warden Earl H. Allen at Broaclrneaclow Prison farm. The two were allowed lo hold govern- jharids tor several hours before the I youth was returned to his cell to await execution. Taranow strutted from his cell to the death chamber, kidding his guards. "Thai guy was crazy." one of the guards commented afterwards.

The policy set forth by Premier his recent Prav.ida emphasized and the was somewhat in interview expanded speeches of Soviet leaders at the anniversary celebrations. The most forthright pronouncement was by Marshal Semyon Timoshenko famous commander in the second world war and in the civil war. Standing atop Lenin's tomb in Red square, he said in the presence of the elite of communism and massed civilians: "The Soviet Army must be in. full combat readiness and must strive constantly to perfect itscli in order to protect the Soviet Union." He already had sounded the warning voiced previously by Sta- !lin in his interview and by Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov at the outset of the anniversary clectralion that American and British warmongers were trying to foment a lew war. He contrasted what he called the peacable, constructive labor of the Soviet Union with what ho labeled. the aggressiveness ol the British and. Americans. • The Soviet, lie said, arc willing to "work for peace and mleina tional collaboration on a ba^js of equality of powers and mutual re- sped."

Validity of the requirement was attacked by the CIO American Communications Association. The Association appealed from a decision by a special U, S. district court in New York which upheld constitutionality of the provision by a 2 to 1 vote. The court also agreed to consider an appeal by Gerhard Eisler, German Communist, from conviction of contempt of Congress. In the appeal, he questions the authority of the House committee on Un- American Activities to compel witnesses to leslify. He was sentenced in U. S.
