IT'S NOT FUNNY. however, when your plumb- Ing breaks down, because ot faulty installation or material. It's not human to be Infallible, but you can be much more certain of protection from not only leaky pipes, but from serious drain troubles, poor service from equipment and other items which mean expense and repairs, by always hav- Ing a licensed plumber do )your work. Knowledge and j -experience — absolute requirements for a plumber's | license — make the difference between a good, serviceable plumbing job and an 'expensive (because of frequent repairs) and even dangerous job. , R. CARDWELL IJcensed Master Plumber Phone 08 •>:* Mulrern In spite ot the fact that the work is being done In the hardest and most Inefficient manner possible, CWA will accomplish a considerable amount ot important and valuable work for the country. When It Is considered that the money thus spent has a certain relief and recovery value In addition to the worth of that work the CWA seems better justified. We sometimes think that it will make no difference whether the nation has a 25 cent, a 50 cent or a BD cent dollar as long as enough people have enough of them to use. It might be predicted that when and It the depression is definitely ended neither the cheap money nor the hard money enthusiasts will have many controversial facts to definitely prove their theories. If you are among those who think that the heyday of county high school sports was five or ten years ago (or the time when you were in school) don't neglect seeing at least one evening of the county basketball tournament which is in session in Malvern this week end. It now looks as if there are fully seven good teams entered in the classic and there should be much good basketball In each game. Another staunch blow against the colorful political machine of Huey Long was struck when citizens of New Orleans elected Bemmes Walmsley mayor In preference to the Long candidate. While he admitted that he was especially weak in the New Orleans field. Long will feel the defeat deeply. Almost the last of his type, Huey Long has at least added much color — '• with deep splashes of red and bold strokes of a more somber pigment closely resembling mud— to the American political scene. Few, very few, national figures exist today who have climbed from obscurity up the shaky and sometimes slimy ladder which Long has chosen to ascend. As do all of his ilk, Long has done much in favor ot what President Roosevelt has publicized as the forgotten man. He has fought effectively and with some blows below the belt the large financial and monopolistic business interests. He has given his state some needed im- Honse last Thursday afternoon suddenly voted on the administration bill, H. F. No. 1, and passed it with but 13 votes against. Not the most optimistic member ever predicted such a re- Isult, nnd the more deliberate j Senate, after six weeks of serious and learned argument over taxation matters, discussion of every other plan of taxation, and action on some dozens ot proposed amendments, was still arguing over the bill when the news catne that the House had not only passed the bill, but had buck."

The amendment tot which a Many Senators were hopeful of such action, as it seemed the only way out. nnd tnx revision in this special session is now Just where it should have been expected to be four weeks ago •— sifted down to a question for conference com mittees to work out and report for final action. Friday forenoon, after an hour of steadying their nerves, the Senators voted to make the bll a special order of business for Monday. Jan. 20, at 10 a. m Members stated they could no Intelligently take It up at once because they had various amend monts they wish to offer to th House bill. These amendments, it may be expected, will cover everything already gone over and then some — such as allocation of the revenues raised under the act; machinery for making tax returns and enforcing the law; substitution of the gross tax feature for the income and'retail sales tax; changing of the retail sales tax from two per cent to one per cent. And some will wish to change the income tax schedules from the graduated scale of one, two, three, four and five per cent on each thousand dollars of net income up to $6,000 to make the same scale go higher and up to flO.OOO. Looking to tlio Election This week will see many rec- rd votes In the Senate on this ax bill. And that record will be precarious one in the next elec- ion. Income tax advocates will xamine the record on that schedule; business will be made about he two per cent retail sales tax if not their customers also). The orporatlons paying both taxes will doubtless haunt those who voted to heap on them an addt- two per cent net income „ r indl vidual constiiners' license of one dollar per year. It is generally predicted that the bill will Jiasi both houses In substantially tha form, though It may go to con ference committees for final ar "angement. Senator Fralley, chairman o he liquor control committee asked that the liquor bill passei jy the House be made a special order of business In the Senate mmediately after consideration of the tax bill. That means the lard liquor act will not be a January baby. Anto Taxes Reduced A new law Is now in force which reduces the amount of automobile license fees to be paid annually. After the third year of registration a car license will be reduced 25 per cent from the regular rate; after the fourth army of 1W4. a.

Refunds can now be claimed for 1934. It Is estimated this new law will reduce highway revenues about $1,200,000 a year, This concession to the used car owners helped smooth the feel Ings of those members who had to stand for a refinancing or re funding law, also passed las week, by which those countlei finding it necessary to extend .heir bond payments can do so to the extent of one year. By thl means such counties are saved any danger of a direct property tax to take care of their highway paving bonds. A lot of little bills, heretofore thought lost in the shuffle, are now being considered by the House. A few ot these also got by in the Senate Friday afternoon and Saturday, during the lull in the big tax racket. iClaims^agBinat'C , Juries and damages of one kind and another seem numerous. Many are allowed and appropriations made to pay them. Last week when the House finally got its steam roller working, it landed from 60 to 69 votes on every roll call. ,,• It must be said that Representative Arch McFariane, ot Blackhawk county, Cunningham of Polk, Lookingbill of Story, and large section of the Senate hac fought, to delegate the administration ot the stabilization tnnd to a board rather than io the Secretary of the Treasury» was opposed by the president and was eliminated. fhc r*at scare of the hill's struggle through the Senate had been the amendment proposed by Senator Wheeler to reme-netiie liver. The desertion of a large action of the Democratic sena ors from the presidential camp o back free silver came in spit of reminders by the democrat! eader, and the amendment wa defeated only by the aid of con servatlve Republican votes. Th vote, 43 to 46, showed a large; gain from all previous votes on ;he question and U appeared doubtful that it the measure should again appear that administration pressure could prevent passage by the Senate, The monetary bill was scheduled to be returned to the house Monday for swift concurrence in the Senate amendments, and for presentation to the president early In the week. The pronounced strength of the dollar in foreign exchange in spite of heavy pressure from American governmental agencies seemed likely to cause immediate devaluation by the president after the bill is finally passed. * * * * Val building program was sttl awaiting the approval of a no unfriendly House of Representa '"ft* navy indicated that add tlotial appropriations to abou 125000,000 would be asked o Congress In order that wot might Immediately be under -way At Tor*™, Arizona, one of th most highly publicised of desp tadoes at large was captured witn three other persons.

Those voting for the bill be- ieve the relief to property taxes will offset any inconvenience otherwise — and that was the main object of this special session. It is estimated by supporters of the bill that it will bring to the state an income ot about 118,000,000, which sum will go toward reduction of real property taxes to the extent of about 30 per cent. Gross income advocates claimed that one-half of one per cent in their bill would bring in fltty to sixty millions of dollars to relieve property taxes, Looking forward to the nexi election, it is remarked that most members in both houses can refer their constituents to some vote, at least, which agrees with j .almost any idea that can be ad- i vanced. Senate Liquor Bill Ready After ten days of consideration of the liquor bill passed by the House, the Senate committee on liquor control agreed at a meeting Wednesday night and reported in their bill Friday morning, The bill contains just about the provisions forecast in this correspondence • last week — a five- man commission, at individual salaries of J5.000 per year, and which they proposed to substitute for the original H, F. No, I, off to a big advantage Wednesday. But that is one reason why they have 108 members in the House —• so the other side can always be sure ot someone to catalog the disadvantages.

Wenrin Sonic events of the past few weeks have combined to become significant indicators ot the political temper of the administration. Aakpcl by news correspondent* at a press conference what his attitude toward persons prqmi nent in the Democratic party practicing law before governmen agencies and engaging in lobbies President Roosevelt declared very positively that no persons should be, allowed to capitalize on supposed 'backdoor' entrance to, the White Howe.„*;,;,; ^4,- • ~- rt .The 'resignationa'of two cratic national commltteemen nod the treasurer of the Democratic national committee were announced.' The president announced support ot a bill to prohibit members of the official organizations of either party practicing law in Washington or acting in the interests of any persons in support of any legislation, He advocated extension ot the bill to include past officeholders, In Iowa » grand Jury brought in indictments for the Democratic Lieutenant-Governor and a bond broker, after the PWA and the Department of Justice had been investigating PWA- affairs in Iowa for several months. Secretary Jckes declared that the policy of the PWA was for strict prosecution of all Irregularities regardless of the personalities af- Of recent this office has been receiving numerous personal letters, telegrams and resolutions urging that CWA work be continued at least two or three months longer,. The advisability of taking such action is seldom questioned In Washington and there is little doubt but what additional funds will be provided. I expect to vote for such an act myself. But as one who Is greatly concerned over policies that affect the future ot this nation I am prompted to quote from the remarks ot Congressman Hatton W. Summers ot Texas during the discussion of an appropriation bill. Mr. Summers said; "Mr. Chairman, that law is stated most generally, I believe, that nature will not waste her energy. I believe we all appreciate the necessity — These remarks have been Inspired by the fact that the present emergency in our economic affairs will eventually pass over. When it does we fflttst be ttte- pared to continue carrying Our share of civic responsibility and not assume that Washington is the only source of blessings. In other words, regardless ot what steps may be required of the Federal government at present with which most of us are in complete harmony; yesterday, today and tomorrow that government is no more and no less than you and myself.
