Industrialization Levy Would Be No Subsidy Yesterday, we discussed Proposed Amendment No. 43, which would enable cities such as Blythevillo to obtain tax funds to be used in bringing industries here. This amendment to the state constitution will appear on the general election ballot in November for your approval or rejection. Briefly, this amendment would permit cities of the first and second classes to levy a tax of not more than one per cent and use the proceeds to buy industrial sites, construct buildings for industries or.amortize bond issues floated for such purposes. Levying of such a tax would have to be decided in a special election called by the City Council on being petitioned by not less than 10 per cent of Unqualified voters. It might appear to some that such a proposition is simply another veiled method of "socializing" the acquisition of industry or a means of injecting politics into the matter. This would not be the case by any moans. There is neither intent nor possibility of using- public tax funds to erect a factory building and then making a gift of it to an industry. If this were done, it would amount to a direct subsidy. However, both the letter and the spirit of this amendment calls for acquisition of such property and construction of such facilities for lease or sale to the incoming industry. It could be cither a direct sale, a long-term lease with option to buy or simply a lease with the city retaining ownership of the building. Money thus spent would keep coming back to the city for use in acquiring still more industry. Politics? It all depends on your view of that badly-battered and misused word. Every time you discuss a candidate or debate an issue or go to the polls or attend a City Council meeting or buy a dog tag, you are engaging in politics in the general sense. As far as honest and proper use of tax funds is concerned, we must in any and all instances begin with the basic assumption of an honest administration. Otherwise, we can do nothing for we have no point from which to start. But whether it's honesty or industry you choose to focus your attention on, the outcome in either case is up to you. That's what elections are for. Defense Needs Prove Reds 3lackmaiiing Humanity A new United Nations survey of world economic and social conditions indirectly serves to measure the magnitude of communism's crime against men of this age. While the survey found that a third of the globe's total population was making significant strides toward higher living standards, it concluded that the other two-thirds is fighting a losing bat- fle against hunger, poor housing, ignorance and general poverty. Communism, if you recall the advertisements from the Kremlin and assorted branch offices, is supposed to he a cure for all the ailments of modern- day humanity. Communism is supposed to be the people's friend. No one would pretend that if there were no Moscow-directed communism all the ills of the world would thereby be solved and upwards of two billion people would be enjoying a high standard of living. Yet it is a dismal fact that the United States and many other free nations are pouring billions of dollars annually into armaments, using up steel and other substances and commandeering the skills of millions of men. All these materials and all these talents could obviously be put to far better purpose improving the lot of Americans, of Europeans, indeed, of all mankind. We and the rest of the West are not in the category marked by the UN as fighting a losing battle with poverty. But our technical knowledge, our machinery, our chemicals and fertilizers and other materials could be at work right now on a considerable scale com- batting the handicaps of the unfortunate two-thirds. The UN discovered there is today six per cent less food in the \vorld than before World War II, even though there are millions more mouths to feed. Supplies have declined most sharply in areas where they are most needed—as in the Far East. If you could ask the Chinese under Communist rule, what would they say of the blessings brought by "benevolent" communism? The housing problem is universal, but it is naturally much worse iti underdeveloped regions. In these, an estimated 150 million families need new homes; in more advanced areas, the fig tire is 30 million. A,.study of 17 European nations showed: that if pre-war construction rates were doubled, it would take an average of 22 years to meet housing needs. Yet nowhere are such building rates possible. That they are not is due in great part lo communism. Our prime task today is not lo advance ourselves and the world along the road of human better- men, but to prevent the gains we have already made from being destroyed. We must defend ourselves against a program of conquest which masquerades as a revolution of the people. Even in backward countries, progress will be made in time despite the Kremlin's menace. But how much more could be done if we were free to focus our energies on building for peace instead of for possible war. Every tank built by the free nations, everv gun, every plane is an evidence that the Russians arc blackmailing humanity, sucking o u t substance that should be thrown into the fight for the uplifting of men's lives. To offer this blackmail af the solvent for human ills is to porpetnue the greatest fraud in history. too For Out of Bofonce It doesn't seem to me that the Republican Party, bless 1U musty old bones, Is properly grateful to Harry Truman.

He adds such irrefutable logic to the current debates. I 1 we say taxes are too high, he says, "No, taxes aren't loo high." If we complain that the national debt is staggering, he answers, "No, it Isn't." should we point out that his bvdget is too fabulous, he replies, "No, It is within the nation's economic capacity."
