WASHINGTON, UPI -- Senator Borah (R., Idaho) declared Wednesday President Roosevelt's corporation tax proposal contained a "sound principle" and with "proper safeguards" he favored it, but he advocated in addition creation of an agency to eliminate government "extravagance and waste." The Idahoan, a candidate for the republican presidential nomination, also urged the United States to do something about collecting the war ebts so "another fund" could be distributed to stockholders. "The governments which are reusing to pay these debts are mak- ng every preparation for another war," he said in a formal statement. The fault is in ourselves that these debts are not paid. We are simply .rifling with the subject and they take advantage of it." Effort to Destroy. Simultaneously, Senator Hastings of Delaware, chairman of the repub- ican senatorial campaign commit- :ee, issued a statement terming the ,ax program an "effort to destroy he strong corporations." "The president tosses to the con- rress a tax proposal," he said, "as casually as he would throw out the 'irst ball at the beginning of a base- iall season. His proposal revolution- zes the income tax of corporations and seriously affects many individuals, both of small means and of arge means." Bprah said '"government waste has become a national disease." Sees Sound Principle. ' "There is a sound principle, in my opinion, in the president's tax proposal,"' he said, "like all taxes, it nay be carried to the point where it will be destructive. But within pro* per safeguards, I am prepared to consider the proposition with entire sympathy as to its soundness. Generally speaking, these undistributed jrofits should go out to the stock- lolders, and this will help to bring that about. "There is another proposal which should be delighted to support if he president would propose it, and hat would be, to create an agency or retrenchment, a body of men [······HHHHMinHHMHHHHHHHIHHHHIfl THE NEW COLOR 1 who would be authorized to formulate a program to cut down government extravagance and waste. Could Get Men. "You could get men who would not charge the government a cent to do this work. They would do it as a matter of public service. "Experts will tell you that for 20 years we have been spending a rtll- lion dollars annually in excess of any amount necessary for the efficient running of the government. Our government at the present time is literally clogged with wasteful agencies and unnecessary officials. "The thing that is holding back recovery as much as anything else is not alone nor primarily the present tax burden, but it is the fact that no one can see any end to this constantly increasing burden. Government waste has become a national disease. Wants Foreign Debt. "There is another fund which 1 should like to see distributed to the stockholders, and that is the international debt That debt will be dollars out of the taxpayers' pockets just as much as the money we are taking out by this bill. "Everything points to the fact we are getting ready for complete repudiation of these debts, which represent money extracted from the taxpayers of the United States. "The governments which are refusing to pay these debts are making every preparation for another war. The fault is in ourselves that these debts are not paid. We are simply trifling with the subject and they take advantage of it." Quarantine Centerville CCC Camp; 3 Cases of Diphtheria Isolated CENTERVILLE, (5V-With three cases of diphtheria under isolation at the camp hospital, the CCC camp here is under quarantine.
