This is another way of saying thai federal relief is indeed an emergency undertaking. Uncle Sam does not propose to a.ssimie obligations which will not be (li.'chiu'ged when the emergency is over. The situation, so far as the so- called "unemployaljle.s" are concerned, is 'grave, but there is no occasion for liysltria.. Particularly to be resisted is Ihe demand (hat Ls already joiiini; heard in this und other .state.s for llio establishment of permanent stale relief organizations and for the imposition of new luxes to finance their activities. Wiirning of the political abuses to which a permiincnl shite relief organization would be open—abu'ses of which experience with Ihe present emergency relief .set-up ought to give ample wnrning—the Arkansas Gazette says: "The fairest and cheapest way would be lo make lucid welfare work a com- niiniily responsiWIily again, to tie financed by local contributions and carried on by local private or nuasi-pjuMc agoncics." ' v V : : V ' ' • That i-eems lo us a sound view of the problem. To make (I work requires a reawakening of the sense of community; responsibility-. The thought, that the alternative—a shifting of the burden to a slate organization—will in the long run be a great deal more expensive might to hcl|> in that awakening. Can U. S. Be Taxed? An little problem seems to Have arisen in Colorado, where llio federal govcrnmeiit has taken over ownership and operalion of the MofVal railroad to jn-olect some ? 10,500,000 in loan.--. The Colorado .slate tws commission has announced that il will lax Uncle Sam for Ihis properly precisely., as il OUT OU11 taxed the private owiiers in- former days. If Uilcle Sam declines to pay, lawsuits will be filed to test the statutes which provide tax exemption .for government property. The growth of government ownership and operation of various agencies is hound lo miike this problem acute before long. If Uncle Sam Is going to run electric plants, railroads, and the like, can the states tax him? If not, how are they goiiig to replace the income formerly derived from taxation of Die/so agencies when they were privately owiicd und operated? trailing the Man Who Does Nol Pay Any taxes To Und "Ilic man who doesn't, pay n»y luxes," lux analysts will explain, you niusl I' llml a man who not. only owns jio property but docs no!, live ns a renter under a taxed roof and dues uol buy n»)>t)>!i){; brought lo « Inxccl Glorc from n taxed fiictory by n trtxcd railroad. But If the Indirect "incidence" ot properly luxation seems loo abstract and vague the non-property owner who pays no luxes Is slill ft Itfclly tarn litra, especially In city and town populations. H he smokes or drives a motor vehicle, (i large part of (lie money lie spends for tobacco or gasoline represents laxhtlon. He cnn'l buy n pack of pluylng cards; purchase a shotgun, shells or oilier spoiling goods; have a radio or a phonograph; keep his wife in cosmetics; treat her to n. fur cent or a moderately cosily piece of Jewelry; take her to a loolball game of slip oil with Ihe boys lo n wrcslHHB mutch without, .being Insotl. In some Instances, ns when he buys cigarettes in Arkun- sns or (jiisollne anywliere, he will be taxed Iwlcc, once by ihc sidle and once by tlio rcdcrnl government. , A man can be .subject to all those and scv- ci-;il older luxes—for instance a ytneial retail sales tax in Mississippi and some oilier slalcs-wUhoul ImvlniJ n dollar's wortii c>C proppi-ty lislcd for taxation on the assessor's books.
