Ethiopian "Pope" ATTACK SEEN AS LIKELY ON TARIFF (Continued From rnpe 1) lion dollars' worth, then it is at th expense of another class (the ulti mate consumers.).. In short, the processing tax is no a. tax for government revenue; j is a tax to transfer the cash of OB class to another class. This, to date, is described as un constitutional. As to the Tariff. But the tariff? Insofar as it is a levy to turn money into Uncle Sam's coffers, i' is not disputed, either. But it is notorious that its purpose is not so much to raise revenue for the government as to. keep foreign goods out of the American market, thereby enabing American manufacturers to charge higher prices to the domestic ultimate consumer -- a class-versus-class distinction just as truly as is the processing tax distinction. American agriculture, to be sure, repeatedly has been reminded that it, as well as American industry, has had tariff protection. The difference, of course, is that industry, engaged mainly in domestic business, profits by tariff protection, whereas agriculture, which needs an export market, suffers from it. Protection Against Prices. Briefly, American agriculture, to be protected, needs protection, not against foreign competition, but against American high industrial The Ahuna, head of the Christian Coptic church, state religion of Ethiopia, is deeply concerned as Invasion of country In threatened. This Is only photo ever made of him in his official residence. (Central Press Photo) A. Wallace has said so in many public speeches. AAA, he has plainly stated, is the farmer's "protective system." It is an intra-national protective system, however--not protection against the remainder of the world, but American agricultural protection against the American industrial protective system. Case Too Complicated. The farmer's case is weak becaus it is so complicated. It is easy enough to see how Drocessing tax bears unfairly upo certain classes. Tariff levies ? "They're the oldest form of taxa :ion in the world," the late Epeake lenry T.

DBS MOINES, Aug. S. iff)--Large cities in Iowa change their superintendents of schools less frequently than do the smaller towns, the Iowa State Teachers' association reported today In its annual directory of superintendents of schools. For the past two years,' the directory showed, there were . no changes in school superintendents in cities of 10,000 or more population. But there were 178 changes in su- jerintendencies in smaller towns, ef- : tfctive for the next school year. 938 Units In Iowa. Despite these changes, the direc- :ory reports, the personnel of men rt charge of Iowa county seat schools will not change'materially .his year. Many of the superintendents, it was explained, merely moved from one county seat to another. The directory reported there are 938 school administrative units in a, ranging from schools whore only four or five teachers are em- )loyed. up to Des Moines, where nearly 1,000 teachers are employed. Two Factors Given. The largest town in Iowa to :hange school superintendents this ^ear was Cedar Falls, where F. L. Mahannah retired from active ser- ice. The report said two factors enter nto the turnover of superintendents f smaller towns. The first is that uperintendents "often are dismissed for trivial and irrelevant rea- ons and those which have no rela- ionship whatsoever to the ability nd competency and administrative kill of the superintendent," and the second reason is "that boards of education in small towns ordinarily do not use the same degree of care and investigation in choosing a superintendent to administer their schools" as do the boards in larger towns.
