FRIDAT, NOVEMBER 26, 1548 Rising Taxes Choke Boom T H£ gQ" eminent sho_Id gc "rather gingerly* about imposing high income taxes, because of the effect too-high taxes may have en mresurenc and therefore on the ultimate secunr.- of all ircorr.e groups, the magazine Fortune warned in an article today. Tiere is a tax level, theoretically, that could stop expansion of m~. esnuer.t. and «ith it capitalism, altogether. Fortune continued, but, the tax rate itself "may not be so important as the trend." "·The 'animal spirits' of businessmen are probably ii much influenced by tajc expectations as by tax actualities,"* Fortune explained. "Mellon raised the?e ·spirits by offering business a declining- tax trend and the expectation of further declines; the New Deal offered just ihe opposite. "The depressing effect of a rising level of taxes may be desirable in the speculative phase of a boom. It is not only harmful at other times but dangerous to the capitalist system if the trend cannot bf reversed.'' * * * The present trend is toward ever-steeper Kraduauon, Fortune pointed cm, ard in this respect the democratic process h a s not worked well with the income zax. "When taxes have to be raised, the public may deem it fair LO raise the tax at a certain income level by S1000 although the tax on much lower income level may iw increased only $5. "Yefc when taxes can be reduced, the majority of people feel that 16 is unjust- to reduce taxes at the higher income level by »1000 or even by $500 If taxes at the lower income are reduced only $5. "When taxes are rislnf, inequality seems fair; when they fall, equality is the watchword. The result Is that whether taxes are raised Or lowered, the tax: graduation tends la (row,continually steeper." The graduated Income tax Is a "man-made law of diminishing returns" applied to the effort* ol the men who make the nation's practical economic decisions and whose function 'Is to increase the productivity of labor. Fortune said. "We permit th* *5,WW-a-year man to keep " cent* oat of the last dollar earned, the 515,000 man to keep 59 cents, th« 525,000 man to keep 48 cents, and so on down to the $100.000 man, who is allowed to keep less than 24 cents of hi* 100,000th dollar. (Thes« rates' stlH apply to single men, though since the 1948 reform, which permits husbands and wives to split all income, the married man gets » better break.) "The wonder is that this policy has not had immediate and catastrophic' results. It has not because these men cannot easily escape the tax; they have to go on making a living. But the effect on them, is palpable and may become serious with time. "In the TJ. S. an entire generation of American businessmen has not yet been raised in an era of high income taxes." "In such an era the rewards of effort and enterprise are greatly reduced in comparison to The rewards of extra leisure, of working unaer little strain, of routine jobs that provide secure tenure for those who GO noi project their necks. "A generation that grows up knowing only this scale of values should be less likely to develop energy and initiative than generations raised under lower income taxes." The Store, and the Community "rEte primary function of a retail store is 10 pro-.ide a place where people may btrr their food and clothes and hardware ana all the rest of che necessit.e.s and luxanes of life. The merchant is' purchasing agent for the consumer. Beyond that, retailing serves a highly important and often c\ erlool-:ed function. It is one cf the great builders of the community. The stores all compete to attract "bjsi: Blame Rests on Officials To the Editor: Your ecitonal "How Much Enforcement" which appeared m Wednesday's Mercury was excellent.

He went on to explain that he would do such a favor for any other member of the police department. So rra;. be that's the answer as to where some of the red tags go that never reach borough hall.

Nov. 25 -- The Supreme court of the TJniied States will probably escape-the most severe Congressional rebuke ever administered to that sugust bodv in modem times as a result of the election of President Truman and a Democratic House and Senate. It was to have been accused of handing down decisions upsetting the nation's economy because of political bias. The castigation would have been ap- plieti by a Republican-controlled body of legislators through passage of two bills declaring that the court's interpretation of law was erroneous and dangerous. The attact on a tribunal which many M\C 's regard as far below p a r would have been accompanied with floor jibes at the politicians, professors and former federal officials -who si^ in seats once occupied by Hughes, Brandeis, Holmes, Cardozo and Taft. In fact, had GOT. Thomas E. Dewey triumphed and dragged m a Republican majority in both legislative chambers, the bombardment of the loftiest jursits in the land would have provided a spectacular political carnival. * « * CONDEMNED: The Republicans had expected to have both big business and big labor on their side in the planned sortie against the men in the black robes, for the two questionable decisions Involved every great corporation and several extremely powerful unions. In borfi instances the court incurred the anger of such groups as United States S'eel and the longshoremen on boih the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. The court's "basing poinf decision, which threatens to upset lonjr-estab- lished methods ofj sellin? such heavy, products as cement and steel, has been geflerallv condemned across the plaza on Capitol Hill- It has been assailed as tossing the TJ. S. back IIITO a horse-and-buggy economy. Industry does not yet know "now to accommodate itself to the entirely new methods of selling and distribution enforced upon it by ihe Vinsonian edict. * * » GUNNING: A S e n a t e committee headed by Senator Capehan, of Indiana has oeen holding hearings for months on the question! It was prepared to recommend a measure undoing the courts work, together with a. suggestion that the eminent; black robers s-noula look more to the la's,- than to their personal, pol.tcal and economic prejudicei. They v^ere prunrung for Justices Black, Douglas. Murphy and Ru:ledge, the liberal bloc. * » * STRIKE: The o t h e r controversial ruling concerned the so-callea payment; of "overtime on o-enime" "vvage^ to the men who load snd unload ships at American ports from Boston to Pus;et Sound- It has been held nartially responsible for the maritime strike that has paralyzed *he harbors, and bloc-ied Marshall Plan smpraerits as TveU as other r;ece-=s?-ry rm- rjlementations of our foreign policy. AHhoueh the issue is too technical for extended discussion here, the court approved evtra and unusual narres lor a comparatively small number of longshoremen, mainly the night workers. The ironic fact is that the men themselves cia no; seek or want this bonus. It "was cerr'aridec by a fe's dock- rnen. --ho vrere lucky or smart enough to engare as their counsel the film headed by Ed Flynn, Bronx boss and former Democratic National Chairman, * * * MEASURE: Nobody dreamed that the Supreme court Troiil-d o'say these claims prov.din^ that overtime pay should be computed or. the basis of what was al- reacy overtime pay. A measure to override the courts decision, which would have intimated that the honoraole junsLs did not possess even 3. k-.nder^anen understanding of labor conditions or economic questions, was ready to nde through Congress and be signed by the President, provided it was a Republican Congress and a Republican President.

CRANK DARREL B . 38, is owner of a large department store. "Dr. Crane, I wonder what you think of our new advertising campaign?" he asked, as he spread tne layouts over my desk. The copy and illustrations were technically very good, but he was guilty of the same error which so frequently creeps into businesses that have been established over many years. For his ads glorified the store more than the merchandise! Yet an axiom of business psychology runs thus: "The customer is primarily interested in himself and not in the manufacturer or salesman'" Thus, to boast about having been in business for 85 years, shows that the focus is on the merchant instead of upon the customer. And to run elaborate pictures of the factors or its pres.dent, further bears out this "Narcissus Complex'' of business firms. You readers are familTar with one c? the breakfast foods winch has long earned views of uhe home factory on all of its canoes. · * » « THEN A FEW YEARS ago. a rival company, instead of mirroring its buildings, ran colored pictures of circus animals T\hich the children could cut out. Retail grocers couldn't keen their shelves siocked fast enough to meet trie r.ew cemand. This cereal sold like hot cakes. Ana the chief reason was the fact that the carton or container now had seme interest value to the buyers! One manufacturer oi automobiles demonstrated this Narcissus reaction by letting a motion picture salesman sell him on the medium of advertising. So far, so good. But the manufacturer had the rnoTie depict his «?m biography, which is of negligible concern to purchasers of motor cars. So the advertising venture proved a flop. Now the manufacturer is hostile to movies as an advertising medium, not realizing that his own vanity was the basic cause of the failure. For over, a decade we psychologists haie been teaching the "consumer survey" as an integral part of our courses in the psychology of advertising and selling. No business should omit at least an annual consumer survey. A department store, however, has a rough check on the popularity of any counter or specific department, by means of the cash registers located therein. To be a success in this modern highly competitive age, you must focus your selling at the average consumer. Remember, too, that Mr. Average American is barely 32 years old, with a wife and two children of approximately kinciergrtCD age.

A GREAT many people occasionally notice a clicking in the jaw joint and sometimes feel as if if were going to lock during a yawn. Ordinarily, this is not a serious condition, but in some instances it becomes so severe that the mouth cannot be opened wide enough for Tiormal eating. In other patients, the jaw may lock when, the mouth is opened, while for still others the audible clicking of the jaw at every movement is tae most annoying feature of trie trouble.
