FRIDAY, JANUARY 28,1938. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELT,SVH,I,E, PA. PAGE THREE GOOD CHURCH LOOP tOURT GAMES United Presbyterians, United Brethren, Christians Triumph. PLAY IS VERY INTERESTING LAUGHS AT PAR By Jack Sards There were three interesting and well played basketball games in the Y. M. C. A.-Church League Thursday night at the "X" gym. In the first, the United Presbyterians defeated the First Presbyterians by a score of 52 to 26 as Hart paced the winners with 10 field goals and two fouls while Vcrnon led the attack for the losers. The second scrap found the United Brethren five continuing its mad pace toward the championship by trimming the strong First V.cthodlst Episcopate, 34-29, in a thriller. The Christians took the measure of the Lelscnring No. 1 Presbyterians to the tune of 43 to 29 in the third sctto. Photy Pcrrus, midget forward, set the pace for the winners while Bailey led the losers. The line-ups: "United Presbyterians G. R. Filburn, f 5 Glass, t - _,, 0 Hyatt, c 0 Miller, g 7 D.

It is well to limit aa [much as possible the number of (times that a defender can afford to {lead the milt, compelling you to (use two trumps to take ono trick. In some situations, tho trying of an early finesse, which loses, will enable the foe to lead trumps with 'impunity thereafter. In that same situation postponing the finesse xnay oblige him to lead something ;else on one of his turns since he dislikes leading away from his honor. 4 Q S 6 4 V 7 6 3 2 + K 8 5 + 74 + 95 V Q J 5 · Q J10 9 + 1 0 9 6 2 ' 4 A J 10 2 + A 7 6 2 + K Q J 3 (Dealer: East.

Chicago Refuses To Buy Van Mungo, Price Too High CHICAGO, Jan. 28.--Traveling Salesman Larry MacPhnil of tho Brooklyn Dodgers pushed on around tho circuit today when tho Chicago Cubs refused to buy his prize chnttcl, Van Linglo Mungo. The red-headed boss of the Dodgers spent half n night and most of Tuesday trying to swop his giant right-handed pitcher for players and cash but every ono of his propositions was turned down flatly. His price was too high. When MncPhail checked out of his hotel room after the unsuccessful conference with Clarence Rowland, chief scout and trader for the Cubs, he left for St Louis, presumably to carry on his sales campaign with the Cardinals. Branch Rickey, general manager of the Cards, reportedly has offered to outbid any other National League club for the discontented speed-ball pitcher. Seven Ercs Make Dozen. CHICO.

You and Your Nation's Affairs The "Sore Tkujmb" Tax By BARLEY L. LUTZ Professor o} Public Finance, Princeton University The principal sore point In the present federal tax scheme Is the undistributed profits tax. This tax has "ituck out like a sore thumb" ever clnco Its enoct- m e n t s o m e e i g h t e e n months ago. The first thing that should bo done, In undertaking to correct the errors and deficiencies of federal taxation. Is to repeal It, wholly and unconditionally. The tax on undistributed profits Is bad "lor business, bad for government, bad for labor and tho small shareholder. In fact. there is difficulty In finding any one for whom It Is good. Why keep it? It Is bad for business because It penalizes severely all retention of earnings for purposes of expansion, reserves, and provision against an un- oertaln future. In this respect the small concern, the new concern, and those who are pioneering In the experimental fields where success Is as yet highly uncertain, are the chief sufferers. The old, well-established business unit, with a large backlog of reserves nli'eady laid by before the tax became effective, is adversely affected, since no business can ride Indefinitely on Its past achievements. But such a firm can hold up under it for a time far better than one that has, as yet, nothing laid by. The administration has decided that monopoly is to be the goat for the current,, or "Roosevelt depression," but the tax on undlstributc'. profits is the surest way of handicapping new and struggling concerns, and thus It Is the surest way of enabling the old, large, strong firm to becomi monopolistic. If It Is so Inclined. The tax is bud for government. It compels distribution of all profits as earned, by large and small, old and new, concerns alike. There will be moro tax revenue now, R little more, though not as much as the "yes men" said there would be when the scheme was first hatched, but before loiij there will be less revenue, because this tax Is stripping the corporal* treasure chests bare as It goes alone ft is hard to Imagine a more short-' sighted fiscal policy. In order to gain a little more revenue now, and so u make good at least once on the long deferred promise to balance the bud* get, there Is no hesitation about depleting the source of future busincsi stability, hence of future tax revenues. Worse still, there Is no concern ' about robbing the capital fund of on* Important-source of supply, namclj the corporate savings. Finally, the tax is bad for the llttlt fellow, the man who works for th» big company and the man who owni a few shares of Its stock. In the next depression, or even In tho course of the present one, busincsi operation] will slacken more quickly because of the Impairment of reserves. Unemployment will be moro severe, because there will bo less of a rcscrva backlog to absorb the red ink of current operations. The little shareholder has been getting some extra year-end dividends the last year or so, because of this tax, but he will have to wait a long time for any .more dividends when business reaction sets in. His company has been stripped clean of all extra earnings by this tax, on tho theory that tho government must have Its cut, its pound of flesh, out of every dollar of net income earned, as soon ' as it Is earned. Over and over, Mr. Roosevelt has flared out against speculation. Yet this tax, which ha proposed and forced through Congress, has Increased tre- mradously the speculative hazard of cil business. Even tho most cautious investor becomes a speculator when he buys the securities of a business which Is reduced to a "hand to mouth" financial existence. The undistributed tax has tended to put all business on a "hand to mouth" basis, for the principal element of business stability has' been taxed away. Keep this tax, and v.c shall til bt- spcculators--the government as~ to . revenue, laborers as to their jobs, little Investors as to the security of their savings.
