No Federal law has been ound to deal with it as the states have established their power to im- jose the restrictions. More than a dozen stales have mposed taxes on oleomargarine in order lo protect butler producers- But the South, which produces cut- on oil for oleomargarine, is retali- iting. Wisconsin, as an instance, put a 15 cent a pound tax on oleomar- *arine. Southern'trade organiza- ions hit back at once. Says the Mid-South Cotton Growers Association: "T h e Wisconsin Manufacturers Association has announced that millions of dollars of contracts for Wisconsin agricultural and manufactured products have already been cancelled by business men m sympathy with southern producers of fats and oils." * . * * Beer Tax War Indiana put a tax on ou»-of-state beer to protect local brewers.

The object is to provide decent homos for those not able to pay more than $8 to $12 a month, and the houses will not bfi rented to those whoBO annual income exceeds six times the rental charge.

The fact that thij dislricl sanitary engineer lias construct^ no less than 250 privies and estimates there is need for at least 15< more, Ls of itself evidence of bin .conditions in some sections of the town.

Of course they wuz some neckin then, Sometimes I allow, But nothin* like RS much as on Newfangled lounges now.

California started the business of luxing out-of-stale liquors under au horily of a faulty wording of the prohibUion repeal amendment. She wanted to protect California wine makers. But almost at onco her wineries were damaged, because olher stales followed the Michigan plan of boycotting stales wilh such ws. Years ago Ihe slale Grange shoved an oleomargarine tax through the Idaho legislature. Bui a few months ago' Grange leaders came yelling back to Washington to pro- lesl what Nevada had done to Idaho. Representative Halleck of Indiana, one of several members of Congress seeking suppression of such laws, is particularly irate about milk regulations. He said regulations once designed to protect the health of milk drinkers had been bent around to protect milk monopolies.. ... Prices Go Up It works this way: City authorities permit entry of milk only from dairies inspected by cily or state inspectors. That sounds beneficial. But, says Halleck, In no time at all the dairies within such 'states persuaded the inspectors to limit their inspections to dairies within the state or within a prescribed area, shutting out other competition. "In nearly every Instance," W Halleck, "milk prices climbed." He is particularly incensed that the nation's very «wn capital haa that sort of milk inspection scheme. 'Of all the places to have «uch m racket," »id Halleck, 'It Is the city of Washington, which Congress controls." He ssld cream in Indiana and Wisconsin la $12 a can while in Washington It Is |30.

Today we jaze upon this seemingly endless shulfle of sober, scared little faces in quiet contemplation of this Accomplished mother's poignant words: "Nobody wants them." Instinctively, American hearts say, 'We do." However, the very thought reminds us to ask ourselves: How much have we to offer them in the way of happiness and freedom in a country which has not yet succeeded in 'amending its Constitution to protect children from the bondage of economic exploitation? How much opportunity can we offer them in a land where many- people cannot afford to buy the things that American children are produce by endless labor in the fields and factories? While we take these orphans ol Ihe political storms of Europe, let us give thought to caring for those millions of children wl<o are refugees of America's political anc social failures. — Christian Science Monitor, An Unwise Retrenchment Plan wmsper 01 uie iree, It would appear the reasonable The tallle of the social world, of course for the WPA, in preparing beaver, bird and bee, The gossip of the river, o f the mountain, of the bog, Tlie wcatherwise prediction of the locust or the iiog, The varied tales of Nature and the quirks of humankind Are offered to Adolphus, who is deaf as well as blind.

An Unwise Retrenchment Plan It would appear the reasonable course for the WPA, in preparing to retrench; lo re-examine ils rolls and drop those who have no right, rbonly a qualified right, to jobs. Yet ... it is preparing, not to eliminate the ' ineligible or least needy workers, but to drop certain types of projects. Within limits, this may be wise. From Colonel Harrington's own description, there appear to be some projects-which, should never have been started. In Uie winter of 1936-37, Ihe WPA authorities in St. Louis made a re-check of the rolls and dropped 10 per cent of the workers as ineligible. A thorough re-check now, we are told, should result in eliminating possibly 20 per cent of the -••orkers. '- , If this is an accurate picture, it is clear that the President was far too low in estimating the number of chislers on WPA at 5 per cent. If the deadheads are present in any such numbers as this, they.can be made to bear the full force of the proposed retrenchment without the elimination of any person actually deserving a public job.—SI.
