Wrong Solution President Truman's proposal to Congress to enact legislation to lower income taxes niul at the siinie time keep the federal, revenues high by exacting new revenues from corporations is not the answer to the nation's economic mess. Higher corporation taxes would mean only higher prices for the products the corporations handle and these higher prices iinickly would gobble up the savings the taxpayer would get through lower income levies. And higher prices in any line would bring new demands from the workers through their unions for higher wages to send prices still higher. There is no answer to the muddle in national affairs except hard work un the part of the laborers to produce more goods which the merchants will be willing to sell at a smaller margin of profit. The United States has a monstrous debt which cannot be ignored without destroying everything that is good in the nation's original economic structure. Business and labor must: work together to the end that the burden of debt can be lifted with honor and this cannot be accomplished by traveling in vicious circles. Even with business and labor working sirie-by-side for the common good, it will be necessary for the leaders in Washington, whether they be Democrats or Republicans, to diligently eliminate needless expense in government and give Americans the essential services at the lowest possible cost. a \ eut. The K15I has investigated many persons who were brought to trial and given the usual rights of a defendant. In spite of this the bureau has continued to function and doesn't seem to have lost all its source of confidential information. Loyalty hearings may not be trial*, but, if they result in dismissal, the discharged employe bears a deep stigma.. If the employe is actually disloyal, one wonders whether the stigma is enough punishment. But in the case of one who was wrongfully judged disloyal, the blot on llis record would seriously impair his chances of earning a living. It might lie pointed out that all private employers do not have the right to discharge workers at will, as Mr. Richardson implies. Millions of workers are protected by union contracts from just such firing. There is no <|ttcsl.ion about disloyal government employes being dangerous. Yet that is no reason to deny them, and millions of loyal government workers, full legal rights. We think there is little danger for the loyal millions under the present setup. Thus far, Mr. Richardson and his associates have given every reason lo believe that they will take great pains to see that justice is done. And we don't think that the FBI is going to embark on a witch hunt. But these loyalty tests will be a continuing thing. Personnel will change in the review boards and in the FBI. the present procedure, unless changed, will still apply. The question is whether the practice of secret trials and limited rights for the accused are a safe weapon lo entrust to anybody who happens to come along in the future. VIEWS OF OTHERS Limited Justice for a Just Cause Seth W. Richardson has outlined the operations of the Loyally Review Board, which he heads, with a frankness that is refreshing and, at first, surprising. He gives a detailed explanation of the board's methods, which lie and his associates have worked out. Then lie seriously questions the justice of some of the methods. The obv'ous question is why he has adopted the procedures thai he questions. But a closer look reveals a 'probable answer between the lines of Mr. • Richardson's polite and careful writing. The hoard has called on the Federal Bureau of Investigation for help in checking on government employes' records. The choice is logical. The FBI is a large, capable organization whose work through the years has, as Mr. Richardson rightly points out, "met with general approval of the country at large." It is evident, from the board chairman's statement, that the FBI must have taken the job on the condition that its sources of information would not be revealed. To meet this requirement the board has had to deny some basic rights to those under investigation. Mr. Richardson ' says the board made these decisions after "most careful consideration." The reasons that decided the members were that absolute secrecy was necessary for competent investigation, and that the government had the same right as private employers to discharge an employe for reasons which seem sufficient to them, and without hearing. That reasoning is a little inconsist- Another Crime Cost Pulaski County Judge b. A. Mashburn, reporting on the county's ex|>cnses in 1917, notes that the circuit court had several long and expensive trials. Right, there is another o! the serious costs of crime. H bears heavily enough on the wealthier counties. In a smnll county, one or two big criminal trials can make a hurtful dent In the county's funds. And too often, when a trial results in conviction, the criminal is paroled from the penitentiary, or pardoned, long before his sentence is served, and commits another crime. Then he must be caught, tried and sentenced again. This has. happened many timns. It is not an argument against all paroles or pardons. But it Is a strong argument for tightening up our clemency system. Too-generous clemency breeds crime, with its court costs. Us dangers to the citizen's life and property, and its risk to the officers who must run down the criminals^ We need lo give far more attention to preventing crime than we do. We should have Jess leniency toward criminals, and stronger law enforcement. And Against Sin? Brief Battle and Solo Applause Greet Address by President Sunday School Lesson ^ By Harman W. Nichols !
