Byrns Reads the New Record You and Your Nation's Affairs A Taxpayers' Revolt By HARLEY L. LUTZ Professor of Public Finance, Princelo/i University .Representative Joseph W, Byrns, Jr., ton of the late upcaker of the House, rend' a copy of the new Congressional Record. Tho Record carries tho United States seal on it for first tune. Byrns, who hails from Tennessee, is a newcomer to Congress. Turn Out Gay Linens Quickly The taxpayers ot Westchcstcr County. New York, have lust announced a county-wide campaign for better government and lower taxes Civic organlza- t l o n s h a v e j o i n e d w i t h taxpayer associations in this movement and as a ra'lying cry in t h e i r coming battle t h e y h a v e adopted the following slogan: "Fifty thousand taxpayers can't be licked." T h i s 1» a worthy cause and the slogan breathes both confidence and defiance. But the sad truth it that the taxpayers can bo licked, even as many as filly thousand of them. The txporienco of rec-ut years shows rather conclusively that as many : . fifty million taxpayers can be licked. The explanation of the defeats which the taxpayers have been suffering is two-fold: flrst. they have not always been properly organized, but the Westchcstcr people are meet- Ing this defect; and second, all of the taxpayers arc seldom to be found on the same side at the same time. Some ot them arc always In favor of certain fiovernmental expenditures, al- thoush they may be In favor ot ro trcnchmcnt at all other points. In consequence, their forces arc usually divided, and any skillful campaigner who Is managing the spending program can usually win in a scries of minor skirmishes without having to risk everything on a general en- cafiemcnt. The flfly million taxpayers have therefore been defeated, time anc again, because this group, or that, fell for some particular spending project, with the result that in the end all of them had to endure the cost of all the spending. Nevertheless. It is Interesting and significant that the citizens of Wost- chcster County, which is reputed to bo one of the wealthiest countlc In the United States, should be girding their loins to do battle for better £ov ernment and lower taxes. It Indl cates that no matter how great i community's resources may be, It Is possible lor the volume and the cost if its government services to become unbearable eventually. IJ one ol the wealthiest sections of the country should have reached Ibis condition, what must bo the state of affairs in some of the less fortunate sections? The folks over In Westchcster County have shown that they Intend to do something about it if they can. and this should stimulate others to take action. The press announcement of the movement gave some further Interesting details. The county debt of 593.000,000, bea.rlng 4V%. should be refinanced, but it remains to be seen whether the bonds were originally issued with proper call and maturity provisions which will make this possible. Relict and welfare need investigation. This has a familiar ring, as has also the complaint about the excessive number and cost of the local units within the county. There ore few states in which the heavy local tax burden is not caused, in large measure, by the chaotic condition of local government. Yet It may be safely prophesied that right here may be the Waterloo of the taxpayers. Nothing Is more obvious than that something oufiht to be done about the excessive amount of local governmental organization and machinery, yet noih- tnc pertaining to government is more difficult to do anything about than this. If the Westchcstcr County taxpayers want to escape a good licking, they must approach this difficult undertaking with the greatest patience, wisdom and understanding. In these days when any and every hint of central control points so directly at dictatorship. It will be doubly difficult to introduce even moderate reforms in local organization or administration. The hope of self-government is the sustained and intelligent Interest of the people In government. The taxpayer revolt in Westchester County Is a sign that the people over there are taking a more active interest In their public affairs. This is all to the good. May they succeed in their objectives of better government and lower taxes, and thus show the rest of the country that the taxpayers need not bo defeated every time they taka the field!

Movie Comedian, Wife Reconciled By United Frets HOLLYWOOD. Jon. 7.--Wry- faced comedian St.m Laurel, who sat on the jnllhousc steps most of Thursday while his wife languished in a cell upstairs, was rewarded Friday with another reconciliation.
