An liencst-to-gooilncss hill to lake the prolits out of war might turn out to be nn excellent means of keeping the nation out of wm- altogether. Take a look at tha plan now being considered by (he Senate munitions committee'. This plan, submitted by John T. Flynn, New York fiiiiiucinl writer, is reported to bear ;i certain amount of White House approval; and whether it does or not, it at leust .suggests a new way of "keeping the country at peace. This bill would lake the profits out of war with a vengeance. Under iU provisions, the government would lake 00 per cent of the first (> per cent prolits of, corporations, and 100 per cent of all over that in excess profits. it would limit all individual incomes to $10,000, taking everything over that for Uncle Sam. It would slap income taxes on everyone earning more than £1000 a year, and the rates would be stiff. .'-"~ -•*•-. * * • » . Furthermore, it would draft general officers of all corporations into the military forces, and in case of need these gentlemen could bo put under the same sort of control and pay scales that apply lo army officers. It would close all commodity exchanges, forbid speculation in commodities, license industries and, where necessary, tix prices, and commandeer foi< the government all essential industries and services. The whole business is drastic enough to take your breath away. But that it would do what, it sets out to do—remove the profits from war— Ihere is not the'.shadow of a doubt. Declaration of war would mean Ihc beginning of a dreary and irksome interval for business and industry, under this scheme; furthermore, the government should be able to pay «11 war' expenses out of income, and the stupendous bond issues of past wars would be unknown. » « • But beyond all thai, it' is highly probable that such a law would b u a powerful force to make the nation keep the peace. One of the chief dangers nowadays is the fact that war does at least pro- BLYTHJBV1LLE, (ARK.); .COURIER NEWS OUT OUR WAY vide a great, if lerporary, spurt of prosperity. Enormous profits are to be made. That 1'nct sticks in the back of everyone's head. It helps mnke us ratdy to accept the idea of war; for we ciin never forget that however trying the war period may be, it will at least be a time of' high earnings. We'd get a different attitude if this Fly mi plan were law. The advent of war would 'mean fewer profits, not greater ones. No one would have any financial incentive for welcoming win 1 . Passing such a bill might prove an excellent'means of keeping the nation at peace. , End of a Long Dispute Sillo by tho Soviet government of the historic Chinese Kaslern Railway to Ihe government of Manchukuo removes one of the most potent sources of international friction in the Far ICiisl. When the Soviet ambassador accepted a check for 215,000,000 yen (slightly more than §0,000,000, for Russia's interest in the road, he brought to an end a dangerous (juarrel 'JO years old. Construction of this railway marked the. beginning of Russia's great drive to the Pacific. It helped to bring- on the great Kussian-.Japaiicsc war of SO years ago; in recent years disputes over its ownership kept Russian-,lap- aucse antagonism alive. There was always the danger that one of tlicsu disputes might boil over into a now war. The sale probably marks the end of Russia's cll'ortsi to dominate the Manchurian plain. The number of reasons for trouble in that harassed region has been reduced by one.
