Keep Good Men in Office .Our inimiral contemporary, Mr. Walter Sorrels jr. of the Pinu Bluff Commercial, devoted an onlirc column the other (lay to « plea for the reelection of Jefferson county's entire "courthouse gang" on Uie grounds that in many years of office holding they had proved themselves honest and c»i>al>le, and it .would be foolish to take chances new men. • : "lt has l>ecn charged," he, wrote, . "that holding public office more than two terms is undemocratic. "Technically speaking that might Iw true, but changing office holders every two terms, merely to give some other good Democrat a job, is not a -wholesome • practice' as far as the taxpayers are concerned." That is sound Hunse. 'Die idea that public offices should be iwsscd around carries the implication that these jobs are maintained for the benefit of the fellows who hold them and that as many as possible of those who are deserving should bo permitted to enjoy them. The opposite is or ought .to be true. Public offices ought to be -maintained for the benefit of the public and with that in mind it is plain they .ought to be filled by the men. capable of rendering the best service. A good man . ought to be kept on the job UK long '•' as.his work is satisfactory. thcRicti Tlie United States scnatL 1 , while re- jectjng Senator La Follette's proposal for' a sharp increase in income tax rates,.particularly on large incomes, has 1 adopted u program culling for moderately 'higher income tax rates on large incomes, increased estate taxes, • and a one-year blanket boost of 10 percent-• in all income taxes. "The general result," us the Cliris- tiHii Science Monitor expresses it, "shows a moderate but measurable drift toward tlic philosophy of saddling the payment on the rich." And why not? The co-st of the recovery program must full on someone and; to quote the Monitor again, "if not on the rich, tlven on the nnt-so-rich * or the actually iKX>r." The time honored argument ugainst heavy income and inheritance taxes is that they interfere with the accumulation of capital to I'munce business and- industry. They do, but us things stand in the United States today the need is not for more investment capital so much as for more buying power in the hands of the general public with which to purchase the products of existing plants. Heavy taxation of large incomes mid large estates is one way of maintaining economic balance. Jobholder* Ail Alike Those who feel that the payments to World War veterans constitute an undue drain on the American trensury, which no government can reduce without running great political risks, should cast their eyes for a moment at the difficulties the French government is having with its bureaucracy: The French government has some 800,000 employes. They are well organized ami militant. For years they resisted efforts' to reduce their numbers or their pay. Successive parliaments shied away from the job uf cutting the federal payroll. Now the government is moving. A tenth of the 800,000 have been ordered discharged, and 10 per cent of the pay of those who remain is to IrtJ slashed. Otherwise, the French budget cannot. be balanced. And the workers are up in arms. New riots are feared :is ;i result of the move. All in all, the French face a problem so knotty it makes .our difficulties over Veterans {Juratu expenses seem rather mild.
