Ho More Taxation ^ sales tax is a bad tax nnywhcro because: 1.—It places a disproportionately heavy share of the bunlen uyoii thoso leaat able to pay. The poor man must spend all of his income for the necessities qf daily life. A 2 per cent tiiiles tax means a 2 per cent cut in his standard of living, which is already too lov^ 2.—It puts a brake upon consumption, and hence upon production, distribution a.pd .employment. We are seeking economic lecovery. A sales tax would be tin additional handicap. A state bales tax is particularly bud foi the .state that imposes it because; it tendb to kfep ont of state trade away and to drive home trade ont of the state. Border communities like our OW11 would be especially lini'd hit. Of lowae even » bad tax muy bu justified by necessity. The sales tax bjll now pemjipg at Wttlo Rqqk is <le- sijnbed by its ud\ocates as an emergency mcabure, designed to tide things over until* levenueb fipm, other sources become adequate fliey may, be sincere in th«t j,tak>i(ient, but most of us know buttei. In good times or bad public revenues, aie never -ciiual to the spending abilities of our public servants, Some a^e ciooks mid.grafters, pome me merely easy 'going, many are sincerely and enthusiastically convinced of the value of the work .they do. But those who Vvon't find a way, good or bad, to sjwnd all the money they can/get then hawlb on are rare indeed It is beUei to beat the sales ta\ now than to icly upon getting rid of it later. It is ui}ik'i|irtj}|y triii: that ccvtaiii valuable public services are sufferint; foi lack of at!e<iuqte funds. At the same time, However, there has by no means bee,n a complete end to unncces- » saiy and wasteful public expenditures m this, state The fust FutreH atlmhi- istiation made a splendid start toward bungipg the cost of .government in Arkansas within the means of Arkansas people, U is better 'to continue that piogram and t 0 suffer for the t)me being such hardships us it may involve than to impose a sales tax- or any other| additional tax upon a cilb.Qii- bhip that is alreadj sufficiently burd- ' ened ' The Relief Program By a margin the senate, overriding the wishes of President Hoosevelt, wrote into tbe $'1,880,000,000 work relief bill a provision for the payment of "prevailing wages" on work relief projects. The president had ask'cd for a §60 per month "security" wajfe scale on the grounds that to pay relief workers wages equal to thoso prevailing in private employment would tend to keep workers out of private work and to make the relief program unduly expensive. The senate's action adds to the importance of another question which has arisen in connection with the work relief bill. It was the president's original idea lo cany out this huge employment program on a "force account" basis—Unit, is, by the direct hiring of necessary labor for approved projects. The advantage of this method is the speed with which it «m put men to work. On the other bund, as was well demonstrated by the CWA last year, it is wasteful. \Ve arc inclined to the opinion that adoption of the "prevailing wage" clause makes it necessary to abandon the force account method. Its would give n s ^mother CVVA, multiplied by four, and while it would no doubt give business a nice little boost it would almost inevitably result in waste on such a samdaloiis .scale ;i.s to deal a real blow to permanent recovery. The alternative is to throw relief work projects open to competitive bidding by properly bonded contractors. That is slow business, requiring the unwinding of a lot of red tape, but it would get more work done for less money. To Be Congratulated Young Mrs. James II. K. Cromwell, who was famous as Doris Duke, "richest girl in the- world," until her marriage n few days ugri, .seems to de- Serve sonic kind of vote of thanks from her fellow countrymen. Here, for a change, was » young woman of wealth and position who got married in » quiet, im-press- ageiited manner; an American heiress who actually found it possible to take unto herself a husband without the aid of an army of cameramen, newsreel truck, gaping spectators, :ind the like. Furthermore, the young woman married an American, imd not a fortune- hunting member of some obscure European titled house. A|l this, on the principle of when- the-man-bitcs-the-dog-H's-news, is worthy of notice. And since it's such n pleasant change, .Mrs. Cromwell deserves some kind of thanks.
