That program, however, is only s temporary expedient. 'I believe that thoes taxes which have been Imposed otter a hardship on the people, and tha only way to relieve them ot that burden is to substitute a sales tax for the present ad valorem taxes. In my own case, I pay not a dime of taxation to tha state ot Louisiana except for my au tomobile and my poll tax. Why shouldn't I pay taxes on other things to help maintain the state? The same Is true ot thousands ot other cltl-sens, who do not take part In the expenses of government. A sales tax la the most equitable form of taxa tion that could be devised. Tha administration has authorised the ap pointment ot a tax reform commis sion that la to atudy the question ot redlstrictlng of taxes. That commission, after It has mads its survey, may have soma other solution to offer, but my own opinion Is that a sales tax will be the only measure that will fully meet the requirements of the situation In this state." Following his address Mr. Weiss said that it waa unnecessary to amplify hla views, declaring that he had expressed them fully, but emphasised statement that the "views were his own, and should not be taken as reflecting any proposal ot the administration.". ,, GARBER'S FAMOUS ORCHESTRA WILL PLAY FOR DANCE Jan Oarber, well known musician, brings his orchestra to the Washing-ton-Youree hotel this week-end. , Jan Oarber needs no Introduction to Shreveport, personally or profee-slonally, and his friends here will welcome this opportunity to see Mr. Oarber again, as well as hear the musio of this famous band.
