"That Billion Djllars It has peecu pointed out, ami very properly, that if Franklin 1). Roosevelt is to ftillill his promise of a billion dollar reduction in tlie national budget he will have lo do more Ihan consolidate and eliminate bureaus and public agencies. It is popular to liit the bureaucrats, but cold figures show that the money to be saved in that way is relatively unimportant ns national budget figures go. The entire civil budget of the federal government is not greatly in excess of a billion dollars, so plainly eyen tTie .most drastic economy program .cannot save a billion dollars there. Where Mr. Roosevelt must find most of his ,billion, if that siim is to be saved, is in the three billions, or thereabouts, that the government spends annually for the benefit of soldiers of wars gone by and in preparation for possible, future wars. A substantial start could be made by trimming veterans'.pension and disability allowances to conform to tlie principle that it is the government's obligation to provide adeiiiiiitcly, • even generously, for actual victims of war and their, dependents, but, to go no further. Such a program would not save a billion dollars, or anything nuar it, but it would make a very good start. .Our.military establishment is not very expensive, as such things. go, .ami '.. any important savings there are dc- pendent .upon greater progress toward world disarmament than is in immediate prospect. Our navy is expensive, but any major economies there arc also dependent upon world agreement. Possibly Mr. Roosevelt's economy program .wilt .be favored by the achievement of such an agreement at Geneva this year. If that fails is it more than a little difficult to see bow he can fulfill his promises? Make Them Pay! The plan of Chicago's city ofTidals to end the "taxpayers' strike" in llis-.L' city by depriving those who don't pay their taxes of such essential services as city water, garbage collection and so on looks as if it ought to be highly effective. Chicago has approximately §200,000,000 coming to it in taxes which are sadly overdue. Originally, these taxes went unpaid because of the scandalous mess into which politicians in charge of assessment and tax-levying managed (o get the city; but a good deal of this mess has been .straightened out by now, and (hose, dlizuns who still refuse to pay are simply destroying their city's m-dil. The proposal to cut these people olT from essential cily services ought to cause a lot of them to look at thhiKu in a new light. Some of them, of course, simply can't pay—anil for .such a people, allowances undoubtedly will be made. Those who can pay but won'l, however, tlcscrvu drastic treatment.

To The News thai Is pretty empty; obviously it is vague, and the value ot 11 is (mile small, except for campaign purposes. Beyond that the Governor would withdraw much farming land from farming purposes, dedicating It ,iu u great reforestation program.
