Ohio, as Second-Class Matter MONDAY, JULY 12, 1937 EVASION AND AVOIDANCE For some weeks past, an effort has been made in Washington to parade before the nation a line of rich men who allegedly have avoided or evaded income taxes. The Roman holiday was expected to command screamers on front pages of the press and to take the minds of people from contemplation of the defeat of the administration on the supreme court-packing bill. That far, the pageant to be provided by the accused criminals, was designed for its political effect. The inevitable psychological effect, which may or may not have been foreseen by the producers of the spectacle, was to generate hatred of the masses against the rich. Such hatred would be necessary to anyone who sought to set up dictatorship of the proletariat. But the anticipated spectacle of rich men thrown to the lions was a fizzle. Nothing worth mentioning of a criminal nature was exposed. The special prosecutor of the administration was a dud. The administration tried its best to induce Ferdinand Pecora, nemesis, of the rich, to take over but Mr. Pecora felt too comfortable in the $22,500 supreme court justice job in New • York to work himself to death in super-heated Washington. As i. result there were no veil-rending or earthquakes at the crucifixion and no one to make sensational the commonplace. News stories were buried inside, if printed at all. Rich men escaped the mob and public emotion remained far below the lynching level. The results of the -wicked tax-evader hunt, next to the failure of the supreme court packing plan, was the worst disappointment-President Roosevelt and Secretary of the Treasury Morganthau have sustained in this, the fifth year of reign. -'• 7' ' : The fact of the matter is, the president and his secretary took in too much territory-when they planned their Roman holiday. They sounded off with the inference, if not the declaration, that avoidance of taxes was of one cancerous kidney with evasion of taxes. They pointed out many cases where they said payment of taxes had been avoided and tried to lead the country to believe that these were as reprehensible as those 'in'which tax-payment had been evaded. Happily the people saw the distinction if their leaders did not. They refused to wax angry at those who avoided taxes because they knew in their hearts that within the law they would avoid all the taxes they legitimately could. What man or woman, for instance, would hesitate, on moral or legal grounds, to make two separate five-cent purchases, sales tax free, in Ohio, rather than make one 10-cent purchase and pay a 10 percent tax? Mr. Roosevelt might say that that person was evading payment of taxes but let him convince that person income tax returns of himself, his wealthy mother, his secretary of the treasury and the secretary's rich father. Then it cou.ld be seen whether the president really believes that tax avoidance is as bad as tax evasion and that the perpetrator of one is as foul a criminal as the perpetrator of the other. This is not a brief for those who cheat the government. Every loophole in collection system should be plugged. 'Nor is it a charge against the high officials of our land. It is merely an effort at clarification of the 'terms avoidance and evasion; an attempt to distinguish between sincerity and—well—whatever it is. NOBLE OBJECTIVE Tax assessments and collection are a rigid legal process, which possesses none of the elasticity of morals, as Mr. Roosevelt would make us believe. _There is fixed by law a clear, sharp line in the determination of taxes. A man must pay what he. owes and he is entitled to escape payment of such taxes as he can legally avoid. He has a right to seek every means of reducing his taxes. .History, and courts have conferred this privilege. They have gone farther and said that questions of doubt in tax matters must be resolv- * ed in favor of the tax-payer and against the tax- collector. But let us assume, as Mr. Roosevelt says, that the payment of taxes is a moral, rather than a legal responsibility. All right. The revenue law permits deductions up to 15 percent of a person's income for contributions to charity. At Philadelphia, Friday, Clarence S- Pickens, executive secretary of the American Friends Service committee said that every nickel Mrs. Roosevelt had received in payment for her radio broadcasts, approximately $100,000 in all, had gone directly to the committee. He said that Mrs. Roosevelt had been informed by the treasury department that under that arrangement her earnings would not be subject to income tax assessment. But the revenue law says that income tax payments must be paid on 85 percent of earnings given to charity. If Mrs. Roosevelt did not earn that $100,000, who did? And yet Mrs. Roosevelt with noblest purposes in .mind and with characteristic unselfishness finds a way to avoid tax payments to the government. Morally bound to pay, if the declaration of her distinguished husband is accepted, she was legally exempt. If it is proper for Mrs. Roosevelt to hunt means of avoiding tax payment it is proper for the humblest citizen. But Mr. Roosevelt infers that a person who avoids taxes is morally as corrupt as one who evades. All.right, so what? The, most effective support of his position feould be given by the president by pubJishiqg the From two sources, Friday, came attacks upon the cost of the federal government. President Roosevelt wisely.suggested savings in the public printing bill, against which members of congress have been fighting for some time. The president expressed the belief that government agencies do too much rushing into print. His statement followed the opening of a crusade by one congressman against "bootleg printing." At the same time, Arch A. Mercey, assistant information director of the resettlement administration, writing in the Public Opinion Quarterly, struck out against the maintenance of press agencies in departments relieving the officials thereof of the task of personally meeting with and answering questions of the press. Mr. Mercey said that press agent "buffers" too often become "bluffers" and lose the confidence of the newspapermen. He characterized the various technical services of the press bureaus, such as movies, photographs, posters and printed publications as "muddled" and asserts that the whole government press agentry should be overhauled. Mr. Mercey says that duplication costs taxpayers tens of-thousands of dollars. He cites, as an illustration, 13 agencies that pour out a stream of press releases on the same subject. Supporting Mr. Mercey is the Brookings Institution, independent investigation agency, which in a recent report, estimated the number of federal press agents at 300 and their annual salary at $500,000. If Mr. Roosevelt is sincere in his request that printing bills be curtailed he might abolish the press agent racket over which he has direct and personal control. BATTLE ROYAL Republicans in the senate are having such an enjoyable time, these days that they are not even taking time out to go to lunch. , They and the galleries are listening to the row between democratic'members over President Roosevelt's supreme court-packing bill. And what a row! The worst in the upper chamber in years. And what is the issue? Constitutional demo-, cracy vs. party unity and presidential prestige. AVhether the court-packing plan is good or bad, American or un-American is not considered .by the defenders on the senate.floor. They are responding to the appeal of administration leaders to avoid a party split and save the face of the president. In short, they are willing to scrap the independence of the courts and place the judiciary under control of the executive—not for the security of the people but for the precious prestige of one man. Happily there are quite as many avowed objectors to this scheme as there are proponents. 1 The silent minority holds the balance of power. Honest Senator Vic Donahey of Ohio, says the row in the senate will not change a vote. Opposed to court-packing, he is going fishing. The republicans are sitting silent. Meanwhile, the people in the provinces read and hear reports. Whether they realize the stake they hold is uncertain. If the supporters of the president win, they may be sure that congress has surrendered to the chief executive, that it is in his power and that the protection guaranteed them under the constitution through the supreme court has been taken from them. PSYCHOLOGIST WILLIAM GREEN President William Green, of the American Federation of Labor, reveals clear understanding of American public opinion when, in a statement, last week, he said: "The violation of agreements, the seizure of public property, violence, riots, and uprisings can have no place in the social, economic and industrial life of America." And again: "Workers of the United States .... are willing to strike and fight for higher wages and improved conditions of employment, but they will do so as law-abiding people through the exercise of every moral, legal and economic right to which they are entitled, in an orderly way and in conformity with the laws of the land."

STORY My New York By JAMES ASWELL NEW YORK, July 12.—Maybe there is something to aristocracy after all. My mongrel dog, so fetching in the window of a Fifth Avenue pet shop, turned out to have distemper and several other canine ailments when I bought him and I had to let the veterinarian take him away and chloroform him. So I have a Briard now. A Briard, in case you don't know—and I didn't know until the other day—is a French shepherd dog. At its best and purest, Briard blood courses aquamarine and is more expensive than Napoleon brandy. Smokey's ancestry was so distinguished that I was afraid he might turn out to be somewhat effete, but so far he seems to have plenty of pep, coupled with a healthy hatred of cats and typewriters. Indeed, as I write this he is playfully drawing blood from my ankle. He is only a puppy now. He promises to grow waist high and qualify in snapping the ankle off entirely. But Smokey, in common with his breed, really loves people. The mongrel pup hated and distrusted people. Probably there is a symbol somewhere in this. It may be that the mongrel pup was a shrewder dog; or it may be that Smokey, conscious of his superior background, can afford to be tolerant and even affectionate. At any rate, Smokey never fawns. He will nuzzle and snuggle, but at the same time he seems to say: "Put t there pal. We're fond of each other." The mongrel was obsequious and woiild fawn for a bit of meat; then he would bare his fangs when, you* petted him as he chewed it. Of course, this might have been due to his ailments, to the exploitation of the pet-shop proprietor. But Smokey will let you pet him as he eats with no show of temper; he simply 'speeds up and finishes in thirty seconds instead of his normal forty—realizing that the taring of fangs has lost many a meal. And I could not imagine Smokey being exploited by anybody. Instead he exploits us. It occurred to me yesterday that he was quietly and charmingly preempting about half the waking moments of the entire household. He either wants to go out or he wants to come in. He wants to play or he wants to eat. An ant has stung_ him or his paw has been tred upon. If Mrs. A. shows' the slightest attention to one of the kittens (we have two of .hose now: and an extra turtle; and the canary is getting a boy friend next week—hooray for country, life, a-a-la!) Smokey immediately gets caught in a door or steps on a standing rake, and cracks himself over the head.. He can stand anything but being ignored. On the whole I approve of Smokey, for all.his faults and his noble ancestry. Or maybe because of. both. Yet there is one thing -.about him that I don't approve of. And that is the cult that has grown up around breeding and keeping of Briards. There is a solemn Briard Society, headed by one of Manhattan's leading literary agents. There are meetings, dues and, I presume, a platform and passionate objectives to be won. This is the age, of joining; yet, not even to please Smokey am I going to become a Briard Booster. Cyclorama By C. E. CHIDESTBR People who talk about themselves make us tired but with the thermometer at 90 and midsummer madness upon us, all perspective is gone. We can think of nothing to write about but ourself. Our doctor quietly advises that we are tired out, run down and in need of a vacation. He accuses us of squatting all day in the office and then going home and reading what we didn't have time to read down town. Right you are in part, doctor. "Play golf?" he says. "Nope." "Make garden?" "Nope." "Like fishing?" "Nope." "Like baseball?" "Nope." / He wags his head sympathetically and disconsolately. Hopeless case. If we must make a confession we would like to say that we believe we are among the few persons on earth whose work is their recreation. Those bundles of papers and books which we tote home are diversion. Just to be away from telephones, typewriter and those who "want to see the editor" is like going on a vacation. Ah' the gift of printing and the joy of reading! Why, there -is entertainment even in the Congressional Record. What's the use of steaming on a hot golf links, in a garden, on baseball bleachers or in a boat hunting fish that won't be found when you can sit in the cool house or on the porch, read, chat and sip—oh say, for illustration, lemonade—at least part lemonade? Lots of people wear themselves down more following hobbies than working. Never have we gone on vacation that we haven't bought and read every edition of our favorite metropolitan paper that was available. We hungered for it at breakfast more than for food. What is happening in the world in these stirring,.anxious, frightful, glorious times? To inform ourself, to leam, to cogitate is to recreate. An old Indiana senator, asked how it happened that he lived to be 90 said: "I never stand when I can sit. I never sit when I can lie down and I get my exercise acting as pallbearer at the funerals of my golf-playing friends." Qbiul From Independent Files 70 YEARS AGO Married on the 25th ult., by the Rev.

' • •LETTERS to the EDITOgJ To the Editor of The Independent: Massillon's merchants deserve the thanks of-the community for arranging a picnic for the people. The day's outing that will be given on August 11 will be the only holiday many children and their parents will get. The. opportunity for holding picnics and enjoying the amusements at Meyers' lake park is one that will be and shuold be enjoyed by every man, woman and child who can get away for the day. In these times of trouble it is pleasant to know that there is one occa- sion when people can forget every thing and have one big bow-out at a pleasant amusement park. I know something of the work that the merchants' committees will have to do, to put this over and I think they are real unselfish. Try managing a crowd of probably 10,000 and keeping it amused and you will find out what a job it is. I want to' express my appreciation of the enterprise and public, spirit 'Of the -Massillon merchants. A MOTHER OP FOUR. . Massillon, July 11. Picture Teaches Lesson Virginia Lee Ethics as Taught by Fijm Commended I DON'T often plug for a motion picture, although I enjoy a good one •just as much as the next one. But I must say a.-word about "Captains Courageous", even if it doesn't follow Kipling's story very closely in detail. It is a "swell" picture. The men in it are a refreshing change from the usual smug and dapper picture heroes, from mushy love scenes, and even from tap dancing, which I admire, when ,it is well done, but which gets a bit tiresome when it is seen too often. "Captains Courageous" tells a grand story and teaches a moral in a delightful way. It shows how 'having everything money, can buy never makes anyone happy. It is honest work and the ability to make real friends and to live honorably' so that you can be admired and loved that is real Living, with a capital letter. It i* a. lesson that every young American' needs to learn. In a recent, magazine article Pearl Buck, author of "Good Earth", said that we cannot have too much honesty and industry in the world. That is what is needed. I would hate to pitch a spoiled child who has been given his own way too long over the railing of an ocean liner. He might not be picked up as handily as Harvey Cheyae was by the fisherman. But if a youth who has been given everything his little heart desires and everything that money can buy, could just be made to realize—even in a way that wasn't very pleasant—that the real things of life cannot be bought ex- cept by hard work, how much better off he would be, and how much .^ more would he be worth to the world which is so full of hatred. This goes .for the "females" of the species, too. * V * FRECKLES: You must give me more time to answer a letter so that you" can get it by a special time, Freckles. I'm afraid this answer will be late. ••'-.. "•': •• I think,-, if. your letter tells the truth without exaggeration, that your stepmother is rather thoughtless in her actions when your boy .friend comes to see you. I suppose she has forgotten how she felt when your dad used to go to see her—or when she had her first beau. Tell-her so, nicely, of course, and see if she won't act differently. And don't think it is because she is your stepmother that she acts so. Many own" mothers do not understand their daughters and are thoughtless when the girl's boy friends come around, if not positively cruel, sometimes not letting the poor things have boy friends at all. So be nice to your stepmother and she probably nice to you. . - * * * R. B. wants to know if a boy of 15 or 1.6 should learn to dance, and how late he .-should stay out? • Yes, I • think 15 or 16 is an' excellent, age to learn to dance, as it will be easily learned. A very occasional dance that lasts until midnight .or after Is the latest a boy or girl of that age should stay out. " Diet and Health By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D., Author of "THE HUMAN BODY" THIS MAN'S CURIOSITY FRUITFUL Today from London I drove out to a little suburb called Teddington. Here was a little parish church of which the Rev. Stephen Hales was curate during the eighteenth century. The Rev.-.Stephen Hales was' a curious kind oF clergyman. He was more interested, in making scientific experiments thau in spiritual matters. In particular,-- his curiosity was aroused by the movements .of the juices in the bodies of plants arid animals. What made the sap rise in the spring and how much pressure was it under? . What.about the blood coursing through. the body—how much pressure is it under? He made some experiments to determine -this, and these are the foundation, for our present knowledge of the subject of Blood pressure. The little church of Teddington sits sedately in the center, of a busy district on the outskirts of London. In Hales' time it was out in the countryside. Not far away was Twickenham, the home of Alexander Pope, the poet. From his country sea 1 ;-at Twickenham he wrote verses which satirized "and stung his great contemporaries. Pope probably never heard of modest little Dr. Hales, but' the work of the latter was of more important than that of the misshapen little cynic. . Falls Into Decay For many years the churcn of Teddington fell into a state of decay. Then a minister was appointed who with great energy, set about restoring it. In the vestibule they found an old neglected gravestone. With difficulty they deciphered the inscription. When they did, it read: ' "Here is inter'd the Body of Stephen Hales, D. D., Clerk of the Closet to the Princess of Wales, who was minister of this Parish 51 years". He died the 4th of January 1761 in the 84th year of his age."*---'- .' The -subject of blood pressure has made notable .strides since the days of- Stephen Hales. For a while the dangers of high blood pressure were overemphasized. Now a more sensible view is held' anout such things. High blood .pressed in itself is smply part of the aging process of the body and causes-ho symptoms. Many unpleasant feels are ascribed to blood pressure which have nothing to do with it. Simply because one his high blood pressure, it is not necessarily the cause of unhappy bodily sensations, as is illustrated by an anecdote told •me the other'day by a London specialist. "I saw a countrywoman of yours the other day," he said, "she came to see how her blood pressure was. And to cry oh my shoulder. She had been told she had high blood pressure and she was feeling very sad. She came over for the Coronation, and it rained every day she had been n London ^nd she wanted to see her son In America. I said to her, 'Madam, it isn't blood pressure that is your trouble. It's homesickness. You take the next boat home and that will cure you.' I didn't even measure her blood pressure." 1 Washington At A Glance By CHARLES P.-STEWART, Central Press Staff Writer WASHINGTON, July 12. — The .heory that there is any appreciable nfusion of communism in John L. Lewis' C. I. O. movement seems to me supported by very little evidence. Calling a man a Communist, in these times, is much like calling him a skunk, or some other name that wouldn't look 'well in print. To say that- he is a skunk does not mean ,hat the speaker thinks that he real" y IS a skunk. It means only that the speaker hates him and wants to apply to him some vile name. It is a mere epithet. I can remember when it was as vituperative to refer to an opponent as a Socialist- as it is to refer to him as a Communist now. Today it is comparatively respectable to be socialistic. A Socialist then was sup- sosed to have long hair and bristly vhiskers, and to carry a smoking bomb in his hand. Or perhaps he was described as an anarchist—though socialism and the anarchistic philosophy are as opposite as the poles. No matter;' the two terms had the same connotation. At present "Communist" has a sim- lar implication. That is to say, you don't like that guy. * * * In Other Days The I. W. W., in its time, was deemed socialistic, anarchistic or what you will; the designations communistic or red had not been in-, vented then. It was miscellaneous labor, however, which would have liked to break nto the A. P. of L.'s ranks, but wasn't wanted; it did not make mough money to be worth having, in short. Left out in the cold, it did become pretty radical. Well, why wouldn't it?—despised as it was? I was at the Cleveland convention, which nominated the late Senator Robert M. La Follette (the elder) for president in 1924. It was engineered largely by orthodox labor unionism. In the midst of the prooMdlngt a \ delegate arose with the announcement, "Gentlemen, I represent the I. W. W." In less time than it takes to relate, that delegate, propelled by num- ,erous A. F. of L. sergeants-at-arms, landed on the lake-front to finish his remarks, if. any. ' * * • * "Orphan Labor" He had some remarks to make,, too. He held quite a rump convention. He said he did not care so much about the tyranny of capital. He admitted that he expected that. :Wh'at made him sore, he said, was the tyranny of an aristocracy of labor. I do not know what that chap -v was, but I always have remembered i hi.i comment, . \ Orphan labor! —that was his theme. * * * ' • * "Orphans" ^Recognized v Some BIG labor leaders have recognized these .orphans also.
