NQ More, Taxation <Y sales' tax is a bad tux nnywlicre because: }.— It places a disproportionately heavy shaic of the bmclen upon tliose least able to paj The poor man tvwl spend all of his incpnie for the necessities of daily life. A 2 per cent sales tax means « 2 jiei cent cut in Ins standaid of living, which is alieady too Icmj 2.—It ptifoj a brake upon consumption and hence upon production, dis- x tiibution and employment.

The president had HsKed for u ?GO per month "security" wage scale on the grounds that to puy relict' workers wages etiunl to tliose in-evniliiiB in private employment would tend to keep workers out of.private work and to make the relief program unduly expensive. The somite's action adds to tliu importance of another question which has nrjbon iu connection with the work relief bill. Jt wim the president's original idea to carry out this huge employment program on u "force account" basis—tlniL is, by Iho direct hirinjr of necessary Inbor for approved projects. The advance of this method is this speed with which it etui put men to work. On the other hmid, us was well demonstrated by the CVVA last yum; it is wasteful. We.iiro inclined to the opinion thai adoption of the "prevail iii( f wage" clause makes it necessary to abandon the force account method. Its use would give u s Another CWA, multiplied by four, and while it would no doubt give business a nice |iiU (; boost it would almost inevitably result iu svaste on such a scandalous .scale as to duitl a real blow to permanent recovery. The alternative is to throw relief work projects open to wmpuiitive bidding by properly bonded contractors. That is slow business, ret|iiii-ing the unwinding of a lot of red tape, but it would get more work done for less money. To Be Congratulated Young Airs. James 11. K. Cromwell, who mis fatuous as Doris Duke, "richest girl in the world," until her marriage ii few days 'ago, seems to de- servo some kind of vote of thanks from .her fellow countrymen. Here, for a change, was a young woman of wealth and position who got married in a quiet, 'nn-press- agented manner; an American heiress who actually found it possible to lake unto herself a husband without the aid ot an army of camera men, newsreel truck, gaping spectators, and I ho like. r'urtherniore, the young woman married an American, and not a fortune- hunting member of some obscure Kur- opcan titled house. All this, on the principle of wheii- the-man-bites-the-dog-it's-uews, is worthy of notice. And .since it's such a pleasant change, Mrs. Cromwell deserves some kind of thanks.
