We Arc. All In This Tiling Together The tax problem is cerliiiu to ho one of the most important to come before the next Congress in January. Therefore it is a good sign to see that efforts are already on foot to put as much common sense as possible behind the tax revision that Is certain next year. Acting Secretary of the Trensnvy Haiies has seent a letter to many prominent business men and organizations asking their help in' a complete study of the tax situation. "This is our common problem," Hanes wrote, "awl a • - successful effort toward its solution will depend largely on our mutual and sympathetic understanding of the qucs- '." tions that confront both the government and tltc taxpayer." . '. Now that is a very lino spirit in which to approach the problem of taxation. After all, we are all in this thing together. The big manufacturer worried about things like the undistributed profits lax just repealed, the small business man burdened with excessive bookkeeping and plaguey small tax worries, the employed man goaded by u host of small and largely hidden taxes, . and the unemployed man keeping himself afloat oil relief or work projects— they are all in a very mi! sense in the same boat. The miseries of all of them are due • to* the single cause of the breakdown of the economic machine. Each is car• 1 JPS a»(l must carry .his peculiar Burden, for none can recover until all recover together. It recalls Franklin, who urged his fellow-rebels to unity during revolutionary days by saying "If we don't all hang together, we shall assuredly all hang separately." The tax burden is not going to be appreciably lower in any near-term future. The national debt, the stale and municipal debts, are facts and not theories. They must be paid. They must be paid from taxes. But not all taxes, even though equal in amount, are equally burdensome on individual taxpayers, and not all have an equal effect on the economic pro. cess. There is room for the application to taxation of a great, deal more study. It is perfectly possible for a certain tax to yield a groat deal of money and yet to have such other social and business effects, as to cost the treasury the loss of other revenues and cancel most . of its own effect. This would seem lo have been the effect of the undistriu- profits tax. It was repealed, not because corporations affected did not like it, but because the efTccts on the economy as a whole were not in practice good. Since collaboration aimed at making our tax system an intelligent whole rather than a patchwork of compromises between elements out to '"get" each other, can be of tho greatest service to the country. Wo hope Acting Secretary ilane.s gets the collaboration he asks, and that he makes the best possible use of if. Tha Right, Lo Rttzz £ Tradition i.s « peculiar nnimiil. Tho right to razz ami heckle verbally from the stands players, umpires, and managers on the baseball Hold is witlc- ly-sniiclioncd by the best American usage. Hitscball without raspberries would be like baseball without hase- hi'ls. So when a Kichnioml, Va., Can was clapped it^o jail for razzing loo enthusiastically,, the News-Leader of that city took up a collection of pennies from Jans to pay his, (hie. "When he paid his admission lo the game, he purchased the right to heckle," said the paper with profound understanding of American tradition. Vet at theatrical performances, tradition establishes no such right in the United States. In Europe, audiences hiss actors at will, and in the more remote parts of South America is apt, to riot if it doesn't like the show. In tho United Stales tradition is against this, yet -at the baseball park we reserve our right lo bo'o lustily each close decision. It's tradition, and traditions, like Topsy "just grow." Yes, Tlu-y Want. Work . H may be presumed that a man who will wait in line to apply for a job from Monday afternoon lo Wednesday morning is serious about it. ' And when 3500 people got j n ij nc a t 0 in tho evening, midnight, 2 and 3 o'clock in tho moiiiiiiig to apply for GOO jobs for which applications are to be taken at 6:30, they're serious, too. That happened In Cleveland when applications were" opened' for GOO civil .service jobs with the city government. Many of the applicants wore recently discharged from WPA. ])o people want jobs? Have \VPA workers been HO lonjj on those rolls that they don't want regular work any more? You hear a lot of speculation along t| losc ii, lcs- Yol ovory (i|))c a clear lest like this comes up, tho available jobs are stalked down with hungry zeal by live or six limes as many applicants as there arc jobs. There may bn cases when ill-paid, temporary "fill-in" jobs have been refused. But until there arc' regular, desirable jobs going bugging it is unnecessary io worry about tho suggest ion that people just won't work any more " The days when playwrights made Brent fortunes arc ovcr.-Waltcr Jlackett.

According to investigations made >y physicians, the barometric ;rej£ure is as important to the iriticnt with arthritis as the humidity, ihc temperature, or the Umosphcric electricity. One scries >f studies showed 72 per cent of the patients with arthritis fell bettor when the barometer rose. Studies have been made to determine whether or not there is on active treatment against the cause of the condition. It is well established, that people with rheumatic conditions who t0 Ari7xma 6° "Eht on becoming Mexico can more and more crippled if they abuse themselves by overwork, unncessary strain, and excess in food and drink. If they fail to remove from their bodies sources of infection around the teeth and tonsils, and in the gallbladder and the bowels, they cannot count on cure. Mind Your Manners LETTERS TO THE EDITOR any rclnUonsliIp between the humidity and the pains hi the joints of those who have arthritis. No direct connection has been found. Nor has any direct connection been established between the temperature anci the pains. Even though we kiftw that a warm, dry climate is apparently better for a person with aril-Trills, it is not certain the liig^s arc due to the temperature or to the low humidity. They are clue, perhaps, to the evenness of the' temperature anci to the ab* sence of any significant variations in the barometric preisure.
