FltlDAY, JULYM, 19'1'i LOOKING AHEAD M«(0*0I i UNION FREIGHT • Vents'before I ever saw an ocean, pictures of Oriental places and people interested me. Distinctly I remember one decorative. drawing of « Chinese l»y. He wore wooden shoes and n bread-tray hat. His queue seemed to wave sportlly behind him as he walked with n wooden yoke on his shoulders. The yoke helped him carry two buckets that hung by cords, one from each end of the yoke. Later I saw such men in real life, many of. them.' 1 was old enough then to wonder what was in the huckets and why people had to lug them. The llrsl such "common carrier" 1 patronized had kerosene In lib buckets, five gallons at each end of thc yoke. His daily job was to walk ten miles and carry ten gallons, for which labor the local oil dealer paid him ten cents a day. A Sharp Contrast Oil consumers had to pay i c ., Ballon for ten miles of over-land transportation, which is exhorbitant. The dealer had to content himself with a speed of one mile per hour In transit, which is ridiculous. The poor Coolie worked ten hours a day for a penny an hour, $3 a month which is preposterous. -Such was the Orient when I was there and it hadn't changed much in a thousand years. In America, where there are railroads and Hie economy of volume applies in Iransportalin::- as we'll as in other things, one cent pays for moving a gallon of kerosene overland 100 miles, not ten. Speeds in Iranslt are rarely below 200 miles a day. Trainmen who do the work get 5175 a month, not S3. Thc difference is that railroad investment exceeds $20.000 per employee. (O t ) Everybody's Asset -»''fi)tal railway investment in the United Stales exceeds 2C.5 billion dollars. In a rcccnl address in Florida, Thuiinan W. Arnold of the U. S. Court of Appeals charged the railroads :rying lo throttle competition to make their investments safe. T do not know the specific accusation, but I know two things: (1) Real competition can't he throttled and (2) investments uught to be protected. Whose investment is it? Railroads don't belong to the officers of the company. They don't belong to their mere million of stock and bond holders. There are dozens of millions of people who own insurance policies and have bank accounts who are the real investors BLYTHEVJLLE (AUK.)] COUHUSK NEWS 'He Don't Live Hero Any More 7 Telling the world that Ihc place is "under new management," Vault members of n Rotors gun <;rew l gleefully point to the signs they have painted on.a section of the German .Wcstwnll Itnown as' j-. . ..... . .tho "Hindenlniig Bastion." EDSON IN WASHINGTON Tax Plans Need A Solomon BY PETER EDSON Courier News' Washington Correspondent A fundamental conflict on where l»stwar tax relief should begin is developing in the studies of the Treasury and congressional tax research experts now working on Ihls problem prior to formal 'consideration by the full congressional joint committee on taxation. The point has to do with determining what kind of a tax program will best stimulate postwar business. On the one side It is argued that the primary requisite Is to stimulate venture capital and encourage people to invest savings in new enterprises which will make Ihe major contribution to maintaining full employment; on ^u....^. ...,v, int MIV; le.ll IHVL'^LUI S | , u . --.---.* . in railroads.

America Is superior because its interior'is developed. Railroads penetrated the wilderness and brought its wealth to market. Then Venturesome pio- leers hurried inland from both .5,-ores to seek personal gain and .tie interior developed by economic mw. Railroads like other industries arc sending young men to war. Railroads have their manpower shortage and it's acute. But with less equipment, than they had ill World War I, railroads are doing above 50 per cent more actual work than they did under Federal bunglement. Our only route to still higher American efficiency after the war is through protecting and encouraging liberal investment of in the tools of production.

IT'S A VERY TOUGH JOB But trying to write a postwar tax bill in advance is more difficult than any task that fellow Hercules ever had to perform. Imponderables to determine before tax measures-. can be framed include estimating' what thc national income will be, what government expenditures will be, how fast Ihe national debt Is to be retired, whether there will be inflation or deflation, what price levels and wage levels will be, what people will do with their savings, how man v unemployed there will be, what people want to buy, how they will want to invest their money for profit. Deciding those things takes the wisdom of six Solomons. Never Hi elcss, the experts arc trying:. They will probably have a progress report for congress when it reconvenes in August. There may be a corporation tax simplification bill before cleclion, possibly another transition tax bill after election, with good prospects for still other transition Uw bills in 1045 and 1D46 Whether a postwar t<i.v bill cnii be written in advance is still impossible to say.
