Another Project TAXATION IN THE OPEN ."'cigarette smokers of both sexes have, become tax conscious in the collection of a new state tax, the first of a "nuisance" type the state has collected in a number of years. ..... Smokers will doubtless adjust them- i E.-selves.J;o the addition of one cent ' every 10 cigarettes smoked, , in most instances, means . cents per package, but the tax, '-necessary is its imposition may be, .riiither adds to the tax burden ^mokers pay. · ; ;ipiquP r and tobacco have been r.iJoaSldered legitimate taxing tar- "~gets''for many, many years , and ··tirsmuggiing of contraband in Eng,. .years ago, provided many an encounter between those "trade" and revenue men, as it is difficult today for ; i£~revenue men to collect government "" taxes on illicit stills in the mountains of the south, and elsewhere. The present, package of cigarettes -already pays a heavy tax before it reaches the hands of the consumer. The cost of a package of 20;popular brand cigarettes is less tbafn five cents. The profits to the makers are measured in terms of a fraction of a cent per package, and the balance goes for the handling and merchandising charges, dealers' share," transportation, and tax, with the tax constituting the greatest share of the sale price. What effect a sales tax will have on the trade remains to be seen. This year, in the city of Quebec, an additional "amusement" tax was imposed on motion picture admissions, which went up 10 per cent by local tax law imposition. On May . 1, every motion picture theatre in Quebec was closed. The theatres are still closed, the owners insisting they cannot operate under the ., heavy tax burden. The tourist trade suffers; taxicab men have reduced the number of cabs, and employes; restaurant proprietors , are ' belligerent over loss of evening trade. The city council talks of Opening a municipal motion pictures theatre to provide entertainment demanded by the people. A simpler method would, obviously, be a reduction or elimination of the tax, which has already cost the city more than its imposition was estimated to bring into city coffers. · A man once killed the goose that laid the golden eggs.

SOMETHING TO WORRY ABOUT 1939 EASY WASHER Heaven knows a young woman and her parents or guardians have enough to worry about when the yovng woman accepts an offer of airiaf^ *hese days, without dragging in any ugly morbid statistics. Yet in t n i s viU. matter ignorance is a n y t h i n g but !;::s. It is fa*' better lor all concerned, the orjspp?- tive biicip, the prospective bridegroom, their families, friends and heirs, if any. to consider calmh- tMid intelli«tn:!y the serious fa"ts on which arc based laws (in iruny states) requiring at least syohilis tests of the applicants for marriage license. If .the advice I gave in thii column years ago were generally followed 'the intelligent portion of the population would have les to worry about. I advised that. instead of waiting until the time conies to obtain a marriage license, "n young man of upright character otighT. to obtain and offer his health certificate voluntarily as a preliminary to his engagement." Even at that early day numerous readers, with what I thought and still think questionable chivalry. as!:?d why the' young woman should not submit the same evidence of her fitness to marry. From I the elementary biological viewpoin: and in view of the moral standard which tacitly prevails, the question seems out of order. Some of the legal requirements now being imposed on applicants for license to marry must be regarded as a step in the right direction but a timid step which should not DAILY MESSENGER PATTERNS Washington Daybook By Preston Graver WASHINGTON -- Baiting a trap with many kinds of bait will se: many kinds of game.- and that is thf. policy followed by the silver senators to gain enough support for silver money legislation. Every bit of silver legislation that has passed IB the recent half dozen years has been accompanied by other monetary or economic legislation to attrart votes. If this sounds cunning and calculating and a bit unethical, remember- that nearly every major piece of legislation is a compromise of views. In the Senate and in the House there are several groups advocating different ways of manipulating the currency to bring about economic improvements. The silver group happens to be the best organized and it starts the wheels that pull support from the other groups. That is exactly what was cJone in 1933 and again in those exciting days at the end of June this year when the · Senate seemed to be kicking mighty high over t h e traces to vote for an increased price for silver and wit-ndrawa! of the President's power to devalue the dollar. In the Senate there never have been more than 12 to 15 senators in the "silver bloc." Acting alone they could not have secured a dime's worth of silver legislation. But when silver is up they hang together like a battalion o! death. Key figures in the group are Senators Adams of Colorado. King and Thomas of Utah. Pittman and Mc- Carran of Nevada and Thomas of i his administration of · the author- Oklahoma. They can count on cer-jity to issue currency, and devalue tain other silver state senators and! the gold dollar." He has never an occasional outsider such as i cheered for the silver ..end of it but Bankhead of Alabama: he took it all of a piece. Strength Requires Strategy To get the other votes they need takes strategy. The 1933 silver legislation furnished the best example. What v:as done in the past few days \vas simply an operation of the 1933 plan. In 1933 the air was ablaze with plans for recovery. Senator Thomas of Oklahoma, whose state, incidentally, doesn't mine a pint of silver, had the idea for gathering enough voles for a silver remons- tization. He knew there were certain senators, .such as Nye of North Dakota, who favored issuing plain greenbacks. So he drafted a bill authorizing the President to issue S3.000.000.dbc worth. O t h e r s w i s h e d to do the expansion through the Federal Reserve, so Thomas included that. Still others. like Connally of Tr:-:a. ; . wanted t-o cut the gold value of the dollar. So thai was included. As for silver, the bill gave the President authority to buy silver and monetize it at any ratio to gold he chose. Other votes were cc rralccl by n provision penni'tins foreien nations to pay up to S200.- COO.POO of war debts in silver. Er.n'i'jh senators wanted iiil or part ol that bill to insure it.= passage. For a time some New Deal ficures were frightened, but President Roosevelt saw the value to Treaty Helpful Influenced by the same forces, the administration agreed to let Senator Pittman negotiate a silver treaty with 66 nations in 1933 designed to increase the value and use of silver as money. Under that treaty and the authority contained Jin the 1933 Thomas bill, the Treasury began buying silver. But the Treasury bought only U. S. silver, at 64.64 cents an ounce. For silver money men that was not j enough. They wanted the U. S. to ·lead the world in establishing sil- jver on a higher money plane. To ! avert another union of inflation- ists with silver people in 1934. a bill was agreed upon calling for purchase of foreign silver. Under it the price of silver once climbed to 81 cents, then sagged to 43 cents. This June, silver men feared the Treasury was going to let the price I for U. S. silver sag from 64.64 to j the world price of 43. No go. said (they. Again they needed outside support. Many senators, mostly Republicans, wanted to take from the President his authority to ds- vnlue the dollar further. So the two teamed up. and soon the silver men had scored another victory -at least for the moment. deceive any well informed candidate for marriage. It Is all very fine to have a Wasserman test of the blood, for syphilis, within thirty days of the date of marriage, and a negative report -- that is. no evidence of Kvphilis found. But what assurance does that give one contracting marriaee that the marriage will not have disastrous consequences from latent, smouldering or uncured gonorrhea? As parent or guardian of a young woman eligible for marriage, if I could have but one test of the man seeking to marry her. I'd choose the test for gonorrhea unhesitantly. Syphilis does naturally cease to be communicable after it has run a course of two years or so. in most cases. Probably it becomes only feebly communicable as soon as the secondary stage (skin rash and mucous membrane patches) has passed. Gonorrhea never ceases to be communicable, even tho the chron- 'c or intermittent manifestations of ^he disease continue for many years after the acute symptoms of the °aily weeks have passed and been forgotten. Of course not all men are liars ind not all men are iniquitous. But "0 many of all degrees or classes of young men do sow wild oats in their heyday that there is no alternative but to regard all men as ocssibly infected until or unless a test by a reliable physician fails to reveal evidence of gonorrheal infection at present.
