THE MORNING HERALD, HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND /. / far »tid, the citizen's 'earned dol ·; Mr It 13 cents shorter, than it jised P" to be. "The'"pinch of the short dollar," he added, is felt acutely In the lower income brackets. whert Jabor spends most of its earnings on living costs. "There is aci outcry for relief from millions of voters," Bunting pointed out. "The political solution is to collect as muchr-of the tax as possible in the higher income brackets, although the higher brackets also supply the venture capital of business. "Unless labor recognizes excessive taxation as the real cause, it will continue to follow the lead of political and union demagogues in accusing capital of reducing the standard by profiteering." Citing President Truman's report that the securities markets accounted for only about one-sixth of the ; equity capital required during 1947, Mr. Bunting declared that "until the incentive to risk has been'-restored to America, it will be impossible for capital to be provided for thanew tools, the new industries, the n e w processes which are waiting development." If .taxes take a larger share of business profits, the future of jobs and . goods will be shortened, he declared'. Calling for a "search for the common sense of wages and the cost of living," Bunting asserted that the two · general wage increases since the war reduced-the purchasing value of the wage earner's savings and life insurance. · "The operation--wage-raise-without-goods-raise--was futile," he said. * "A third round .of such wage raises could become catastrophic. A fourth round could be a collectivist conspiracy."

Baltimore, "April 29 (£)-- The Sun said tonight that it had learned Governor Lane "will make an official inquiry into the reasons why he has not yet received a report from the special investigating ;ommittee he named last July to look into the activities and financial administration of the Maryland Veterans Commission." The three man group held its last open hearing of the investigation about four months ago. The 'newspaper said that "it was learned that two of the three members of the probe committee flatly refused to sign a report prepared by Alexander K. Hancock of Tacoma Park, the chairman, on the ground it constituted a 'whitewash. 1 'It was learned authoratatively/' the Sun story said, "that one of the indings which caused concern to the committeemen was their failure to find in the files of the Vet- irans' Administration in Wash- ngton any military service record for an important administrative officer of the Maryland Veterans lommission, who is also a member of the American Legion." Governor Lane was not avail- ible for comment on.the story.

"We are disturbed by the persistent efforts to resume the draft and adopt universal military training," said a declaration adopted by the denomination's Atlantic Conference. "It is our judgment that this is a potential for war and not for peace, that it will say to the world that there is no way reconciling the differences between nations save by force. Moreover, we do not feel that the military branches have demonstrated their ability to be entrusted with the moral care of our youth." R O U N D AND SQUARE DANCE Every Sat., 8:30 p.m. at W. 0. W.
