We hear a lot iihout failure to col- leil taxpb on so-called "inlangiblcs," meaning, \,e presume 1 , cliielly stoclis, bonds moi Images and similar valuable but easily conceahible properly.

Suppose a man owns title to a f<n in He must pay the taxes on il Another man holds a mortgage on the farm. In theory if not in gcn- piactite that mortgage also is taxable. Who would pay'this latter lax? Nobody but the same fellow who pays tlie first, one. For the investor in .mortgages is not going (o loan money without ic.tsoimble assurance of <i fair re- tuuj And if he pay a lax upon the moilgagcb he holds he can and will demand a i,ite of interest high enough to oAsel that tax. - : • / 'Iho^iu'f re.snlf of any .sevioii.s al-' tempi to tolled such I axes would of couise bo thai Arkansas capitalists \\ould bo driven, to conline llieir in- vcbtmeiitb in securities to oul of stale piopeities, their ownership of which toukl not leadily be traced. While Ar- Kiins.tb boiiowers would have to seek money out of the slate to avoid the penalty of double taxation.

And to expect llic collector lo sell for a dollar's worth of (sixes the bed and stove that constitute the chief possession.? of many of our people is lo ask him to do something lliat no decent man would do. Taxes on such small possessions are not collected in actual practice mid the law should be changed to cxempl them. The Honor Roil Three cilics deserve to have their names written high on a roll of honor for 193*1. They are- San Francisco, Pittsburgh and Milwaukee. The .first l\vo because! they were the only ones of the do/en largest cities which were able to cut down the 1111111- bi'i- of persons killed by automobiles in 19,3'J as compared with 1933. And the lasl because, although il fchowcil a [ilijfhl increase, il remains at the bottom of Ihe list of 12. Preliminary estimates of the National Safety Council .show that Los An- gelt's was the inost dangerous 1 city regarding auto deaths, with '17-1 in 1934 compared with 415 in'; 1933, or 32.7 for every thousand people, the highest in the country. New York, naturally, led in fatalities, with 1,005, yet wa.s second lowest in percentage per tiioii.saiid, 13.7. Chicago had almost as many fatalitto, 980, for a rate of 27.5 pu- thousand, second highest. Thirty-live thousand lives were sacrificed in 1934 to the'automobile, and idreut a million were injured iti 900,000 accidents. Reduction of this horrible .slaughter is fasl becoming & national problem that must be tackled more energetically than we have yet tackled it. Al Goes Prohibitionist One of many-, protests .against the showing of a foreign movie* called "Ecstasy" came direct to the Wtiite Hoiisc fi-oiii a.: fellow named Alfred I 1 ). 'Smith. lie wauled the government to prohibit its exhibition on grounds of indecency, since the heroine is said to appear in the film with no more clothes than she wore "Ihe day she was horn. Now Ihis Alfred E. .Smith is Iho same Alfred K. Smith who a lew years ago was pretty much steamed up, because the government had prohibited people from drinking what they chose to drink. Al was against prohibition then. But he has no objections, il is clear, to the- government prohibiting people from seeing the movies they choose to, sec. All of which proves thai when il comes lo prohibition, it all depends on whose Iocs arc stepped on, and which Loes.

The committee said many Males could not assume the financial burden of pensions wllliout assislance and, tncrefore recommended that the federal government pay one-half the cost of these pensions but not more llian $15 a month for any individual.

Tlic commuice said its objective was: ! 'To give to nil dependent aged persons not in need of inslitulion- al care a decoiil subsistence in their own homes." The committee reported that actual calculations placed the pension cost so high for the year 1080 that Ihe problem, must, be re-examined In search of means to reduce estimated government contributions in that year.
