Tax Collector Hatreds May Cut Expenditures The'United States government is n great institution, and it does things Which no other government in all histoi-y ever did before. As for instance: during the fiscal year 1938 it collected in internal revenue taxes approximately $5,659.000,000—the largest sum which any government ever collected in any 12-month period. After a figure .gets about so high.it ceases to have any meaning Perhaps we can better understand it by realizing that this amounts to just about a quarter of the entire world's stock of monetary gold—all of the metal that has been mined since the discovery of America, the product of Inca mines and California and Alaskan gold booms, of Australian rushes and South African bonanzas. Four centuries of gold-hunting would pay for just four years like this last one. And with all of that, our government still operates at a deficit! Nor is the end in sight Relief and public works are still with us to say nothing of agricultural surpluses and the army and navy. We are about to launch a new preparedness program and double the size of our air force No we can hardly hope that this particlur kind of record-breaking finance is going to end in the immediate future. But perhaps it will be worth all it costs if it compels us to re-examine the whole question of the relationship between government and citizen. For the world today seems to be sweeping along a road which leads to greater and greater subordination of the individual to the state. In some lands that subordination is complete; man exists for the state, he may read and speak and act and even think only as the state directs, and his life and property are in every detail at the disposal of the state. y We have not reached or even approached that point in this country Given halfway decent luck and the exercise of ordinary intelligence we need not apprpaph it Yet this colossal tax collection may help us to understand that the tendency to approach it does exist, that the trend in human affairs is running that way. anawa u, The-remedy, unfortunately, is not simple. It is easy to say, "Cut down the cost Of government," but very hard to suit action to the words. And in the long run we can protect ourselves against this trend only by remembering constantly the oldest truth of American democracy-that government exists to Sole * e ' Cttaen ' afld that M a genferal *'"«"" serves him test by leaving him - Therema y be emergencies in which it can't leave him alone; times when it must spend huge sums, to give him service or protection that he cain't get for himself.. -Then costs go up and taxesmoum. But we can keep government from developing, through these emergency activities, into a colossus that is our Sffn^r **£ "VJffT? 04 - A** our natural antipathy to the tax-collector ought to help us keep that in mind.

MPBRIS HSHBEIN r ~" Editor, Journal of the America* Medical Association, and of the Health Magazine g)ry Gleaning at Home Has Many Health Hazards to Overcome Ju a recent survey, of the hazards of dry cleaning to neaith, a study was made of the different hazards involved in cleaning ip the .home. Usually dry cleaning operations are conducted in the basement or in the kitchen The clothing may be washed in Cleaner's naphtha. This substance is, hpwever, explosive and has even been ignited by static sparks prduced by rubbing silk garments .on each other, as well a sby open flames, hot stoves, faulty electrical connections, washing machines, vacuum cleaners, electric toasters, and other home eletric appliances. In some instances explosions have followed the turning of electric lights on or off. The basement room is usually small and without windows, so that a high concentration of vapor is easily possible. In the kitchen, as well as in the SPANISH PRINCE HORIZONTAL f 1 Pictured |A Spanish ij prjnce, Count «fl He was once PT— i-to«^ );.- Spanish - throne (pi.). 13KnUe, l^ Organ of Shearing. 15 Smali ox.

To some extent, these hazards of dry •leaning may be lessened by doing the work outdoors on a day which the hu- mdity is high. This avoids the ac- umilation of the vapors of the elean- ng agent in u confined room and re- uces the danger from static sparks As everyone knows, the danger ol parks is greater on a clear day. For home cleaning, there are several substances which are fireproof. Among these is cleaner's naphtha to which enough carbon tetrachloride has been added to raise the explosive point beyond the danger zone. However, the vapors of such substances as carbon tetrachloride are much more toxic than those of cleaner's naphta. Thus the fire hazard is elimited, but a new health-hazard is brought in. Because of the danger of fire and the danger to health, it is probably safer to have the celaning done by experts in large establishments than to do it the home. It is also ferquently necessary to com bine dry cleaning with washing, since washing with soap or other agents, will take out much dirt that will not be removed by dry cleaning. In addition to the hazards that come from fire and from the inhaling of poisonous gases, workers in the dry cleaning industry are subjected to heat from the machines used for pressing. This applies not only to those Which are motor driven or steam pres-, ser devices, but also to electric hand irons. Frequently people who have worked for a long time at such devices have developed difficulties of posture affecting the back and legs. People whp use hand pressing devices sometimes have inflammation in the back of their hands from the constant lifting and pressure on the Iron. When gas is used as the heat agent, there is the secondary possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning due to the escape of certain amount of gas into the air. Finally, women employed in this industry sometimes suffer from the exessive moisture that is associated with the use of scrubbing brush and board, the splashing water and concomitants of wash day. It has been recommended that those who work every day atthis type of employment should wear rubber boots or shoes and aprons in order to overcome this hazard. Last year the Agricultural Experiment Station at North Carolina College examined -1,500 samples of soil submitted from 1,100 North Carolina farms.
