Their budget estimates ot coming cvonuc revealed a puzzling lack of nthusljism for the President's optl- iism,- which was rather 'more pu» ing in view of the fact that the udgct contained the -very spending rogram which Mv. Roosevelt wants. The official budget estimate is that ncomc und corporation lax receipts --based entirely on National income f course--will be off 20.4 per cent his fiscal year and 27.4 per cent next car.

What makes this sound more pc- uliar Is the fact that the estimators xpcct other direct taxes from busi- icss to imp'rovc this year. They cx- cct the people to drink more liquor eginning July 1 because their Jiquor ax return is up seven per cent over ho 1038 fiscal year: smoke more igarcts because their tobacco rc- cipts arc estimated up 7.44 per cent; uy more stocks and piny more cards 'Ccausc their stamp tax estimate is up 26.6 per cent; buy 20 per cent more aulos: buy 10 per'cent more gasoline: use three per cent more Icclrlcity.

While 5D witnesses w a t c h e d hrough windows, cyanide pellets ·ere dropped into the acid and the esultfint gas rose around the help- ess man in the chair and chocked ut his life.
