Such an attack, too. .-asly might lead to t he colla pse of th- whole Marxian revolution. Trotzky believed and continues to be, eve that the Marxian experiment only can succeed if it is woild wide in its application, not eventually, but immediately. Stalin, by contrast. believed and obviously still believes that only when Russia itself d been organized in onformitv with the Marxian theories rould it pass to the offensive. The results of the Stalin policy a re disijosed alike jn the Five-Year Plan at homo and the entrance of the Soviet Union into the league abroad. Red Russia has reoccu-pied the place of Romanoff in Kuropean councils. The relations he t ween Paris and Moscow have come to resemble those between the French capital nnd Pet I he fore the World war. And with jtbis change there has been abolish-jed the double danger that the west-jern nations might back either Ger many or japan in an attack upon the Soviet Union. In plain terms, the Soviet Union has attained domestic security at the price of postponing if not onipl. tely 1 . n. ui n.-i ng the world revolution. It equally is true that luting the later and graver phases of the great depression, the west- in nations have been spared any domestic disorders which might have resulted from operations directed from the Kremlin.

(A P) A qnar-ter million Mexican immigrants. unable to cope with economic ron-i ditions in the United States, have-returned to their homeland. Many more are on their way. Mexican emigration to the United States has dwindled to the point where it in negligible. Wage incentives which caused American industrial land agricultural sections to be flooded with cheap! labor in the prosperous TO's haei vanished, and the issuance of pass--port visas has been curtailed sharp-; ly. with the result that fewer than 1.000 Mexicans migrated to th United States last year. Tide Turni A horde of Mexican laborer seeking a better livelihood than could he found in their own country, had been streaming northward through American ports of entry from 120 until 1S30. when the tide suddenly turned. The number of lega lly-admit ted immigrants from the republic to the south swelled to more than 25.000 t yearly during the decade of good i times. The abrupt downswing: of the economic cycle in 193u. however, precipitated one of the greatest voluntary repatriation movements in the history of the American continent. Mexicans found themselves unable to compete for available jobs and destitution followed. American relief agencies provided i transportat ion. often by the train-i load, back to the border. 1'iwn there the Mexican government undertook to return them to their former homes or. in line with the revolutionary government's agrarian program, placing them on farms where they can make their own .living.

" Most of the automobile manufacturers decline to agree that there can be a "saturation point" in the marketing of motor cars.

Jan. 5. (AP) Congressional leaders were wondering today what effect a half dozen or more "leftist" movements would have on their followers before the new session has concluded. in most instances, the programs put forward as panaceas by the various gioups are more radical than anything that has come from the professot ial advisors.

Pome of them ate recurrent, and have been growing more serious with the years. Pome are new. some are "deprcs. sion born." and some are engendered by hope that the depression is past, or will have been wiped out before another legislature meets. Taxes And Budget Probably fust in importance before the coming session of the legislature ar- the interlocking problems of taxes and the state budget. Running a rinse second is tho matter ,,f liquor- control, and ita many ramifications. Then there will he myriad .problems of administration.' many closely allied with the state's finances, others almost purely P'll 1 1 CH I. The nth legislature placed unoii the state four p- forms of taxation, three of which still endure. The fourth, the intangibles tax law. was found unconstitutional by th 'supreme roiirt. and now m inopcia-tive. The others, the seneral sales lax. the luxury tax. and the net income tax, are bun; collected today. I Sales Tax Is Target I Almost certainly the 12th legis-'-1 tut.- will have brought before it ine question of continuing th. s three new taxes as they ate. aool. isiiing one or more of them, or ln- creasing one or more. J The sabs tax particularly ap-j pear s likely to be the target of sev-ira more or less well organized lobbies, ranging in their purpose all I the way fiom abolition to material increase. There has been indication also that attempts will be made to hav the intangibles tax law re-enacted, in form to comply with the require-nienti of the constitution, j All of the new forms of taxes wie spoil orod iv Governor Mocur's administiation, which still is in the saddle, iin.i which is expected to recommend that they he continue. 1 at least without reduction of their present revenue producing capacl- t ICS. Warrants Retired The 1 cm nue from the sales tax has been used mainly for the retirement of outstanding registered! w arrant s. The administration s view- is that this policy should continue, working toward the ideal of a state on a cash basis. Tiie luxury tax was enacted by the nth legislature almost entinly as an emergency measure to .n-abie this state to finance the shar of puh lie welfare woik the federal government demanded it should. q, m order to have federal a,d for relief continued. Its application ov sale of hard" liquors has placed somewhat different aspect upon it, and has involved police povveia y 1 1 1 Ii originally weie not envisioned. It is likely- that there may he made to the legislature a suggestion that the state tax on liquors b separated from the luxury tax proper. Segregation Urged This, it appiars, may be involved in a move to segregate, some or the enlorremcnt and police powers which the new- taxes engendered, now all centered under the almost siipirme authority ot" the state tax commission. These pre -.session suggestions have gone all the way tc tentative plans for proposing abolition entirely of the tax commission as it is at present set up. 1 he Arizona liquor control act. as enacted huiiiedly by the last lc; ;is- la tu re, placed with the tax commis- sum not only- administrative, but semi-lrgislativ e powers . hich in some quarters a desire has been expressed to have dissipated. The tax commission'? authority ;t expected to be four tied Upon In S'l- eial of the munv new plans for liqu-.r control which apriear aim -st certain to be submitted to the U'tM legislature. In the most important of these measures, several of wii:'-ri alieady liav e been prepared or are in the course of preparation, powi-ra now resting with the tax commis. si'in would be translated into statute, and the commission divested of its authority to legislate regulation! of its own. Changes Proposed Nearly all suggested plans for liquor control, it is anticipated, will include more definite qualifications for holders of liquor licenses ant will set up specific hours in whicil j liquor may ( e dispensed. One ide j which hppiais to have gained mint impetus, and winch also has h.-.-n .indicated tt. have the support of ct least the hitter class of liquor di- pen.-ers, i. pi ohihit ion of sales r "hard" liquor, at least by tiie dririri, on Sunday. An interesting side light of th liquor problem which will come before the legislature is the fact that citizens engaged in the liquor business hiive shown a tendency to interest themselves as vitally in remedial legislation as peison anl organizations definitely opposed to I iquor.

Bigger Budget Urged 1 Tiie state budget, as embodied in the general appropriations Din. appears certain to be as controversial a problem as usual, perhap more so. Governor Mocur's recommended budget is $217,515 more. net. than the "economy budget" of the lltti legislature. This, the chief executive has explained, in the main i due to the fact that the pruning ft the 11th legislature, under emergency conditions, withheld in mantr instances repair and replacement funds w hieb now are becoming necessary if greater expense is not to involved at a later date. The actual net increase is mom than $217,.
