He will make the race, Mr. CfclUwcll said, in a platform con- tnirilng a single plank culling for amendment of the federal constitution, to abolish the two houses of congress and transfer all of their powers to the president. The president, under Mr. Cald- 'vell's plan, would be subject to tuspenslon by vote of a majority of the 48 governors who would at the same time call a special national election to elect his successor. "With congress abolished," Mr. Cnldwell said in his announcement, "such a recall provision should hand the government back (o the people, prevent a dictatorship, preient any possible revolution, destroy p.t its source the greatest aggregation of machine sncl spoils politicians the wo ever contained, recover lost respect for the law. and strike down to its knees the rule oi preCitory wealth and raise to its feet the rule of men."

Outlook Held Hopeful You may lake the word of L. H. Parker for that. He's chief of staff of the Joint Committee on Internal Revenue Taxation, aixl it's he who supervises tr.e gathering ol information on which congressmen later base lax policies. And Parker feels that, so far as incoming revenue is concerned, the government's situation is "distinctly hopeful." Today's deficits have two causes. It's not only that Uncle Sam Is spending money like water in fighting the depression. That's but one side of it. Tlie other side is that, as business stagnated, his income fell off slckenlngly. Thai's the side that's picking up as business picks up. Here's how It iworks: Miscellaneous internal revenue taxes (not Including the income tax) put $169,776,114 into Lhe federal purse in October. In August they produced $135,000.000. Compare that with August, 1932. when (hey produced 504,000,000. Pickup Shnwn in Taxes Take a typical case of such a lax, the tobacco tax. The rale hasn't been changed for years. Therefore, the proceeds frcm it make a pretty good index of business. In August, 1933, it netted Uncle Sam $40,700,000, compared 10 535.500,000 in August, 1932. That's a. better than $5,000,000 dividend to Uncle Sam through business recovery in a single inontn, and it's been Increasing steadily ever since April. The playing card tax (10 cents a pack) netted $501,000 in August, 1933, compared to $204,000 -in August, 1932. nearly dcuWe. That gives you a picture of how Uncle Sam stands to gain from' every increase in business Uiat he can foster. Harvest From Liquor Very soon now, further Income should begin to pour in from liquor. Estimates vary. Parker believes It FhcuM bring not less than $500,- OCitl.cXX) every year, and some optimistic estimates have gone as high as a billion.
