Sinclair's Tax Program Upton Sinclair, wlio hopes lony 'to lie governor <(f Califovm'n, announces lliat if he is elected he will seek lo impose an inheritance tax of 50 per cent on "grail fortunes" and a lax of 30 per cent on income's m excess of ?50,000 per year. A heavy tax on large inheritances, such as lie proposes, seenw lo UK both just and wise. There is no proper place in American life for the' dynastic system-in wealth and economic power. The founders of great fortunes may have earned them but that docs not justify their enjoyment by ilc.sceiuln.nls who render no proportionate service to society. As to increased income taxes tho ie is not (jtiitc so clear. Income [taxes should not constitute a penalty jttjpon initiative and enterprise. Tiiuy _^ :>ulcl not be higher Ilian is necessary to meet legitimate revenue re- tliiirements. But aside from tlie soundness in themselves of.Mr. Sinclair's proposals ^herc remithis the''difficiilty thai capital is fluid and can readily escape burdensome state taxation. If Mr. Sinclair is successful in imposing a GO per cent state inheritance'tux on largo fortunes many California possessors, of such fortunes will lind it convenient to establish their legal residence elsu- wliei'e. In lesser degree tho same thiiiy would result from disproportionately high state, income taxes. Redistribution ol' 'wealth through taxation, on any extensive scale, is practical as a federal but not as a state measure. This objection does not apply to another of Mr. , Sinclair's lax proposals. "To break tlie grip of land speculator*," he announces, "all unimproved city land and all uncultivated farm land will pay a tax of JO per cent." That is radical .but sound. The earth's surface is limited. Those who want to hold part of it idi c , denying to others the right to use it,, should be forced to pay heavily for the privilege. A 10 per cent tax on idle land woiild force owners of such properly cither to put it lo work or to permit it | 0 revert to tlio slate, which in turn would make it available for use as demand arose. It would take the spccutetivc value out of land, which would be a good thing for Uie actual users of land and for the consumers of the products of land. Judgef, Disagree Under recent federal court decisions NKA; pric'c-lixiiig provisions for Hie lumber industry apply in Arkansas and Louisiana but not in Tennessee and Mississippi. The minimum prices of the lumber code were held legal by Judges Hawkins, at Monroe, La,, and Marlineaii, at Ulllc Rock, but were thrown out as invalid' by Judges Anderson, at Memphis, aw! Holmes, nt VH/.OO City, Miss. So now Tennessee and Mississippi lumbermen may dispose of their products at any price that suits them, while their competitors on (his .side of the Mississippi river in Arkansas and Louisiana must sell ul code prices or not at all. The situation, of course, is one that cannot b e permitted lo continue. \Vu don't know which pair of judges is right on the legal aspects of I he matter, but we think it is a pretty safe guess that the' ultimate solution will be the abandonment of code price restrictions. Those NKA provisions that seek :lo insure decent minimum wages and maximum working hours may be continued, but price control is going out. For Promoters Only The Semite Banking Committee cer- lainly indulged in plain speaking when it. issued its report on investment and holding- companies. "Little justification, economic or social, exists for the holding company as ^ presently constituted and conducted," says the commilleo'.s report. "Holding companies,' whether employed in (he banking, public utility, or niilroad Held, ) lilvc . | JCU11 ca (a.strophic to the American public." All loo often, the holding company is nothing more than a device by which a clever promoter can gain control -of widespread properties through use of other people's money. If may be very nice for the promoter, but it'has ver'v little social usefulness. Majority sentiment in the United Stales is likely lo agree with llu> Senate committee in its demand for strict federal regulation of holding companies.

The rea- on is that (he medical profession us made great strides in the con- rol of cancel- by application of ra- imii and X-rny. Part ot this advance is due to iiprovemeuls in the manner in hlch lioth radlimi and x-rav ar-1 scd. " ] Long ago it was found that tlisj ssiies which make up a cancer more sensitive: to radium andi ic X-ray than arc ovtllnnry tis- les. 'Hie tissues that make up :i I •mccr. arc like those of a groivhig ' lI > 1 J l1 ' after birth. . Ti'.cse arc'very men' more sensitive" to'' radUitT&li ifin are the tissues of grown eoplc. It lias also been found that benc- cial effects of X-rny mid radium i cancer are due not only to lances produced in the cancer It- II, but also lo the reaction lhat kes place in the tissues around ic cancer. Rndlum may now he applied in nicer not only directly to growths i the surface of the body, but also growths within the body. Tiiis is ccomplishcd by the use of sold and atlmim seeds in which the eman- tion of radium is put directly into ic growth. X-ray apparatus lias been im- :ovcd so thai it is now possible o give, in a short time, enormously igh dosages of the rays. During the last 25 years, cxlsn- ve study lias been made of ,the se of bath these methods. Cases live been recorded and have cported before medical societies* nd in that way tlic science of erliclne been advanced. With development of the new dc- cw. methods of treatment of cancer in various portions of llic taoilv have been mortified. Parlinilarly Ins radium been found io Ic of value in cancer of the g:-n- eralive organs of women. These methods arc a great advance ov:r previous methods of Ircatmem. Cancer of the breast in v.nmcn used lo be treated with'irradiation methods only when considered Inoperable. N'owadays. irradiation is use sometimes before op.n.-iiian, sometimes In connection with (he- operation, and In many iMHiiies utter operation. By studying cases treated with various methods and by reporting their results in medical iiieeiinos and in medical journals.
