That's about what's happening here now. The communist platform of Kail Marx' has in it two wicked tools for transferring property to the govcinmenl from private individuals, such as farmers: <1> A heavy, graduated income tax — the bigger tiie income the higher the rate. 12) Killing the right of inheritance.

A. Hugg and his famous beard, which wns Wieved to have been one of the longest in the world, wns presented over (he national network. Lsist night's program related how Dr. Biigg, who prized highly his six feet-and-slx inch beard which hei allowed to grow for 20 years, visited the Chicago Worlds Fair in 1893, und loiiml to his amusement that the length of his beard wns exceeded by one inch by the whiskers oi n man in u side show.

Little Itock, Ark. fender against communism in this country, could devise no safer strategy for the home front, than to take tax laws more intelligently in hand. There is n movement en loot already to amend the Federal Constitution so as lo mnke 25 per cent the top tax rale on gifts and inheritances and, except in war lime, on personal incomes. Maybe 25 per cent is high, but it's a colling and I'm for it. Already 14 states: Alabama, Arkansas. Delaware, Illinois, Indiana. Iowa, Maine, Massachusettes, Mlch- igan Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Wisconsin and Wyoming have endorsed the move by act of legislature. Such a Constitutional Amendment would bring several incidental benefits to national prosperity besides setting lip a safeguard against the transfer of private property Into public hands by the tax route. I.ct Incenlivc Live Only recently this column told about an aged man of means declining to finance a premising home ; enterprise because the biggest pos- I sible return (after tuxes) on his I investment could not justify the risks involved, although they seemed small. Without a chance for financial improvement, old men will not risk their savings, nor will j young men contribute their time, j energy and ingenuity. Tax rates like 85 cents on tlic dollar paralize | progress. Opportunities to mnkc a profit start new industries and keep old ones going. -The - United States is sure of an employment problem after the war, unless industry Is tvec t | from the ball-and-chain effect of present laxes. "Tlic real remedy for unemployment is Ihe creation and maintenance of work opportunities for working men and women in private industry."' Who said (lint? None other tlmn Matthew Woll, while he was vice-president of the American Federation of Labor. He was dead right too.

Joe runs a clean, up-to-date store. He carries fresh, standard merchandise. His prices arc fair. Hc makes a modest profit. Hc performs a hundred and one services for his customers. His neighbors count him a worthwhile citizen. Uncle Sam may decide however —as he has with other businesses— lhat groceries arc no: cheap enough and some sort of a yard stick is necessary. So a government store is opened next to Joe's, with lower prices. Joe sees his life's work being destroyed . . . destroyed, not because the government store is better managed and more efficient, or because the groceries arc better. Now Joe helps to provide the cost of city, county and state governments. State and federal income taxes hit Joe pretty hard, but he doesn't complain because he wants to do his part. Rut Uncle Sam's store pays little or no taxes, Joe can't borrow money as Uncle Sam docs, at a very low interest rate. Nor can he get printing or postage free. If Joe-loses money it comes out of his own pocket. If Uncle Sam's store loses, Joe and other tax payers help make up the deficiency. Yes, it's pretty tough on you, Joe. It'll be tough on other Arkansas and Missouri tax payers arid, local governments when all you Joe Doakc-s one by one are forced out of business.
