"Technically speaking that might be 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 sense. The idea that • public offices should IK; passed 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 be 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 jnun v ought to be kept on the job HK long •'• as. his work is satisfactory. ing the Rich The United States senate, while re- ,j«cting Senator La Follette's proposal : for.'-a sharp increase in income Ux rates, .partidularly on large incomes, . has'/adopted a program calling for moderately higher income tax. raits on large incomes, increased estate taxes, •and blanket:boost of 10 per cent in »11 income taxes. "The general result," us the Christian Science Monitor expresses it, "shows a moderate but measurable drift toward the philosophy of saddling the payment on the rich." And. why not? The cost of the recovery program must fall on someone ami,.to quote the Monitor again, "if not on the rich, then on the not-so-rich " or the actually poor." Tlie time honored argument against heavy income and inheritance taxes is that they interfere with the accumulation of capital to finance business and- industry. They do, but as 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. JobhoUcr* All Alike Those who feel that the payments to World War veterans constittilo an undue drain on the American treasury, which no government can reduce without running gi-eut ixililical 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 arc well organized ami militant. For years they resisted efforts' to reduce their .numbers or their p«y. Successive parliaments shied away from the job of cutting the federal payroll. Now the government is moving. A tenth of the 800,000 have been ordered discharged, and 10 pet' cent of the pay of those who remain is to be slashed. Otherwise, the French budget cannot be balanced. And the workers are up in arms. New riots are feared as u result of the move. All in all, the French face a problem so knotty it makes .our difficulties over Veterans Bureau expenses seem rather mild.

Mrs. To Hie editor:] Produclion for Usi' A uronp of scientists at Columbia University, New York City, say thai the facts point conclusively a complete collapse :of our economic syRltni, followed by . collapse of our civilization, unless a method of distribution, consistent with our mcthcxl of production, is adopted. This uhaiuje is expressed In the plirabf "Production for distribution imtl consumption instead of for private profll." Let us stale tlic real definition j of production, distribution and | cotis\iinpUon. I Production covers all menus used I tor bringing into existence something tlial did nol exist before. The miner and oil-field worker innke available things that were in existence but not available, nnd I should he considered as producers. I Distribution means goltlng [>ro- I duction to thn ultimate consumers, but along wiih it, must go the right to consume it. In other words, distribution means, getting things where they mny niul \viH be consuinctl. By what right docs u new born baby dcmtmd that anything be given to it. It h«s done no work.
