Income Tax Reduction It now appears probable that Ontario county residents will share in an -income tax reduction before .the present session of Congress adjourns. President Truman's recommendation that the tax Of individuals be reduced $40 each seems to make some sort of a tax reduction 'almost a certainty. The Republicans already had a tax reduction plan I'eady. President Truman's sudden conversion to a tax' change apparently came as an effort by the administration to block "the GOP plan. " U n d e r the Republican plan $5.6 billion dollars ."would be cut from the federal revenue through a gen- ' reduction. ·'. Under President Truman's proposal a bit more than $3 billion would be cut from the tax" bill of individuals but an increased corporation tax would make it up. Federal income would remain about the same. With both parties agreeing that the individual taxpayers,^ least, should have some tax relief, it would appear, centain that some kind of a bill will finally be approved by both Congress and the president. For the .ordinary tax-paying consumer, however, ·any tax cut will be worthless unless some method is found to halt the rise in prices. Unless increased production or government action halts the spiral of inflation, any general tax cut is apt to boost prices still higher through a release of more purchasing power. A reduction in taxes might affect the economic picture in much the same way as another general .wage increase would. ^ u taxes would not help the lower income groups unless there is also some guarantee that the extra money left in the pay envelopes will buy more goods. A reduction in governmental expenditures might help make a general tax cut. effective. Lower federal expenses do not, however, seem to be very probable in view of the demands for foreign aid. It's a knotty problem and both Congress and the president would do well to forget that 1948 is an election year. Cooperation would be more beneficial to the country than political competition. December, with its short days and its growing cold, is naturally a gloomy month made bearable by the pleasure and excitement of Christmas. Now if some one could think up some like stimulus for January! At present that cold and gloomy month is made colder and gloomier by budgeting and income tax. The -only silver lining is that the days are actually getting a little longer. Year-End Figures (New York Times) Data published this week shows that on Dec. 31 the United States Government had a surplus of $1,658,000,000 for the first half of the current fiscal year-a period beginning last July 1 and ending next June 30. This is an unprecedented figure. In six months the Treasury has actually rolled up a surplus half again as large as the largest surplus ever previously recorded for a full fiscal year in the whole history of the country. The previous all-time high, $1,555,000,000, was achieved in 1927, in the fabulous days of the Cooliclge. Administration. There is no mystery atiout the primary causes of the present record-breaking surplus. Those causes are terrifically high tax rates, imposed on an immensely high level of business activity. During the first half of the current fiscal year Treasury receipts from all sources have amounted to more than $19,000,000,000. If Mr. Coolrdge's Administration had had the same fat income, and if its expenditures had remained what they actually were, the Treasury's surplus for the first half of the fiscal year 1927 would have been something like $17,000,000,000--instead of the present figure of less than one-tenth that sum. What has happened, of course, is that expenditures as well'as receipts, have risen enormously since 1927. To a very large extent this is the direct and inevitable ·cnnseouence of the Second World War. But even if we deduct the main "war items"--the present cost of interest on the wartime-contracted debt, the present cost of .national security in a troubled post-war world, the present cost of veterans' relief and the present cost of the postwar loan to hard-pressed Britain-and even if \ye further deduct the present cost of the Social Security System, which was established since the Coolidge^ days--the fact remains that the Truman Administration is spending considerably more than twice asjmich in the first half of fiscal 1947-48 as the Coolidge Administration spent altogether in the - first half of .fiscal 1926-27. There ought to be room for some economy in these figures.

That is the hackneyed boast, or apology of the inebriate, and in the first year or two of his addiction he may sincerely mean it. .But I should like to ask every occasional, steady, moderate? social, heavy, periodic or secret drinker this simple .' question -- confidentially, privately. Answer it in your own mind if you can, or, if you have what-seems to you- a fair or reasonable answer I'll be grateful if you will write it down and send it to me, even anonymously if you prefer--I'll be grateful for an answer---I am not susceptible to anonymous abuse, w r i t t e n or printed. Here is the question: Since I grew up the main reason why I don't d r i n k is t h a t I feel just fine and dandy and 1 jiate io miss anything--as one does when under the influence of narcotic. This implies that alcohol in any quantity, tuider any and all circumstances, is narcotic, not stimulant--and there can be no question about that.
