Our Doily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor a-Alex. H. Wathburn—. an Honest Citizenry, Without Whom America Dies In looking over the state-wide results of the poll of business men djn federal tax questions conducted This month by the Economic Council-State Chamber of Commerce I iind my vote didn't count for much. Tile majority opposed the! increase in social security taxation from 1V4 to 2 per cent. But it was acceptable to me. This is an insurance program to provide old-age retirement funds — an actuarial problem in which the intrusion of personal opinion seems rather silly. t The majority also voted against c idea of substituting a general manufacturer's tax for the present hodge-podge of federal excise levies disguised as "luxury taxes" and what-have-you. But I supported the general manufacturer's tax in that poll. If we have to have a federal sales tax at all it's wiser to distribute it across the board than to let pressure groups single out certain industries and products for f ecial taxation so that their own dustries and products may escape e common burden. Do you think I am so wrong aboi this? Well, then, I would advise yo to inform yourself about wha usually happens when the peopl of a republic let special interest Write their tax laws instead • o requiring the tax load to be distri butcd among all. The monumen that human selfishness has erectoi all through the ages is the grea pyramid of nations, dead and gom '©ctured for us in the dusty page; of history. The current object lesson for Americans is that decadent land called France. Some time ago mentioned Ernest O. HauSer 1 report, "The French Arc in a Jam, in the January 2 issue of Saturday Evening Post, saying,,that it "was required reading for every thoughtful, American. For instance — Mr. Hauser reported that the common people of France, labor in "ifte cities and farmers in the country, are being steadily victimized by a vicious system of Special-interest taxation and "protection." France today is the tragic example of a republic that has failed — and mainly because Frenchmen supported taxes from a strictly personal viewpoint instead of being fair to the nation as a whole. This paragraph 1 is my condensation of the import of the gjholc article — but let me give you n' direct quote from Mr. Hauser, and you may judge for yourself: "In France the customer is always wrong. No supermarkets, no ordering by 'phone, no delivery service, no bargain basement, no bargains. No ads telling you what would be a good buy today. Installment buying is scarcely known. Where it exists, it will add 25 or 30 per cent to the cash price of ^ your car, and nearly double the l -price of household appliances. There arc few chain stores — a special tax keeps them from flourishing. Nine out of every ten shops are papa-and-mamma affairs, charging whatever price the traffic . will bear. Between retailer and producer, especially in the food business, a flock of greedy middlemen siphon off the fat. An egg for which the farmer gels 13 francs I) costs 30 in Paris, and one 'Parisian, not long ago, paid 73 francs for a head of cauliflower in which the sly producer had inserted a slip of paper saying. 'I have been sold for 12 francs.' Hope Jfmm Star WfiAf H rNo*? ARKANSAS: $at% ttlotflffr tWl 1 v-- flftenicou, tofffpt *Ad tftiufMift ^ 7y Sligbiiy C661W 1h!s aftemo6«.
