This money can't If plucked out of thin air. * * * J. All of which brings (is up lu Iliu ' latest (leclariition of Senator George \V. Norris of Nebraska, who urges a heavy stiffening of the inheritance tax by the next Congress. .Here is an idea which -cuts two ways. Not only would il provide the government with badly needed money; it could be made into a weapon to promote (hat more equitable distribution of wealth which seems to be one of tlie goals of the era now beginning. In considering an inheritance lax, it would be well to get a clear picture'of the exact nature of the tilings it would be expc'cted' to accomplish. "Such law," remarks Senator Nonis, "should allow a liberal exemption—an exemption even large enough so that the beneficiary might live ilic remainder, of bis life in luxury—and then it should be ir.CTcasefl !jy progressive steps so that the residue of Hie fortune would be passed back to tho people through this method of taxation, and thus be relumed to the government." * » » Every man who manages to lay aside a little surplus liiis the right to seek to provide for his inildien. That should be possible, under even the sliff- est sort of inheritance tax law. But the idea of preserving a vast fortune intact through generation after generation, and pres'irviiisr with it the great power that goes with extreme wealth, handing wealth ar.d power down to those who have done nothing to earn them—that .is soniething ul<e again, MJT UIJK WAY and we pj-oporly can keep it in mind .in framing our law. . There need not be any "soak the rich" tinge to such a step. Uncle Sam needs every dime he can gel; the country as n whole needi t<i do something about '.he i-nngeaiing of great wealth in the hands of a fortunately born few. F.oth goals can bo reached through sane revision ol the inheritance lax. —Rruce Cation. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 24. 1933 F. R. Picks IVinner No one idea of Franklin I).
