We Pay Uncle Sam's Bills Readers of 1 this column have no doubt noted lhat on nut infvi'iriiciii occasions, the editor rinding his mind as cmjily as the pii^'e lj;ftirc him, Bnicc Cation, who also write:.- buo): reviews and other mailer I'oi- Uie Newspaper Enln'pri-.c association, 1ms been stnn- mon:d to fill the gap. Mr. Cnllon, in our jtidinnont, usually (iiiL-.i very well, bill l:ist Saturday, in his comparison of national and local tax burdens, lie based a sound point on a weak bit of reasoning. It is certainly true that cili/c-ns and lax- pnyers owe it to thems;lvc.-.. to take more interest in their local governments, but il is not true lhat merely because the average cilixcii pays little or nothing in direct taxes to the national government he has no vital i>or- sonal interest, no liiunicial stake, in his national government. Tin only direct federal tax that affect; any large purl of the American public is the income tax, and the majority of us siilVer little if at all iroiii lhat. But that does'nut mean thai Uie li'einemlcuis cost of mainlaininic the national establishment, with its multiplicity of departments, boards, bureaux, and services, the army and navy, and meeting interest and principal on the national debt, docs not in the end fall back upon us. W : ;> do not pay directly, but we pay nonc-the-less, and just because we do not pay directly, and hence cannot readily measure the cost, there is all tli; more reason why we. should exercise n check upon (he fcndcticy of our national t/overmneiit to expand its activities. Jcffcraou's ideal was a national jjov- •»nime;u cntnisUd only with purely .-.alional all'airs, such as foreign relations, defense, the postal service, and similar matter?, thai plainly could not well be left lo tli: ilslcs. Rut ever since Jefferson's lime the tendency has been for Hie national ijovernment lo extend a paternalistic finger inlo more and move of the affair:: of Ihe member slates and lh:ir t'iii'/.ens. Because lo the citizen who pays no direct federal tax such extension of federal activity often had the appearance of something for nothing, it has been generally welcomed—nowhere mure than in some of llti! twentieth century strongholds of that Democracy which is still sometimes described (is Jeffeivsonian—but the cost is (here nonetheless, making itself fell in increased living cosls and iticreNsul difficulty in finding profitable employment. Many present benefits would be lost us, Iml in (he long run we would be better oil' if an end v.'cr;, put to federal aid and federal meddling in local affairs, if each slate and each local political unit were compelled to eland upon its own bottom. Then indeed we would be driven to give seriou.s consideration to our local affairs. Perhaps this is impossible. If so we should at least realize thai when we accept apparent favors from llic federal government we are placing additional burdens upon ourselves.
