Income, Not Wealth, Needs Redistribution When (lov. Ahirniier S. Kcdcs of thu Federal Reserve Board told Hie House Bunking ConimiUec that a redistribution of income is in order in the United States, he helped to clnrify a situation which has grown prully confused. Governor Kcctcs was carel'ul to point out that it is income, and not capital, which ueeils re-dealing. It is a point which ought to be kept in mind by all people who are easting wistful glances at any of the current sharc-thc-wealth movements. At (lie height of (he post-war Ijooni, (Jovei-nor Kcdes nays, one-tenth of one per awl of (he faniilie.s at Hie lop of the income list yol as imidt money as •12 pur cent of the families at the bottom. They wouldn't possibly spend all their money. Most of it hud to be invested. * * * But investing it simply meant that (he money was used to' stimulate production. The country's capacity to produce was pushed ahead of its capacity to buy. Eventually we (' n u n d ourselves floundering about in a depression featured by that astounding contradidioj), want in thn midst of plenty. Governor Eccle s sees the remedy us a more einiitnble distribution of incomes. This, he says, can be accomplished most (ilToetiyely.tliroii^i/iii- come (axes'. '"""'" '. ' " ' .• • , • Now contrast'Ibis view with (lie rising demand fur a redistribution of capital wealth. Capital .wealth consists largely of intangibles—stocks, bonds, and the like. Suppose, Cor the sake of argument, that the claims of the most vocal shure-the-wcalth group are (rue, and that this wealth if divided would givu each family $5,000, What would happen then? * * . * The family would not yet $5,000 of income. It would get a §5,000 stake in the country's mass of .securities. If these gave an average return of -1 per cent, the family would draw exactly $200 a year—which is a long way from being enough lo support a family in this day and age. Jn other words, we arc asked to put through a scheme which would OUT OUR WAY rock capitalism to its foundations to give each family an income far below even Uie subsistence wage in the pending public works bill. Mr. Eccles' plan would create in- linitely less disturbance in the world of business and finance—and, at the same time, it would be far more lucrative for the people who need increased incomes. —Bruce Cullon. Crime Moiks East Five or six years ago, New York was entitled lo point an accusing finger at Chicago when gangsters and racketeers were mentioned. The bombings iiiut killings of the Chicago beer barons' condotlicres were notorious all over Die world; Ntm- Vork managed (o ffet along with such things held down to a fairly respectable minimum. Hut a change seems to have come over the face of the waters. New Vork authorities are milking a drive to .stamp out racketeering, and a series ol'Wing murders, insolent threats, and sliii-lling revelations are the result—including an amazing warning from gangland that the police commissioner's children will bo kidnaped if he doesn't pipe down. Chicago, meanwhile, has grown (juict. Cmif killings are few. The slate's attorney reveals that bombing have so diminished Unit lh L . 0 ]ti "piuwipplc trust" is praclically out of business. The delimit lawlessness that blackened Chicago's name smns to have moved to Manhattan. In Happy Agreement When both capital mid labor agree that Uie country is beginning to come out : of the depression, there must be •something in it. On tiie same day Ihaflhe American ft-deratiou of I,abor—usually deeply pessimistic—announced that "under the mined surface of the business stream, cm-rents'Of revival are steadily gaining strength," the United Slates Chamber of Commerce noted Dial a rise in production figures which began in December has continued steadily info'' March. While the federation saw small promise of jobs for the jobless in the immediate, future, the Chamber estimated that 700,000 should have been re-employed by March 31 over the beginning of the year. Certainly the con junction of these two reports would seem to indicate pretty definitely that a real upward trend is at last in progress. The love to own property must be sustained nbovc everything else. - G ov.. George II. Earlc of Pennsylvaiiiu. * * T Stop calling ,,, c ..y 01|| . „„,,„, Iiis{mss .,_ Iili just mortal like .
