Truman Wants Gap Closed Between Ideals, Practices "We believe that all men are created equal and they have tile right to . equal justice under law. "We believe that all men has the right to freedom of thought and expression and the right to worship as v they please. "We believe that all men are entitled to equal opportunities for jobs, for homes, for good health and for education. "We believe that all men should have a voice in their government and that government should protect, not usurp, the rights of -the people." Those words are from President Truman's message to Congress on civil rights. The message, goes on to ask for legislation that would safeguard those rights more fully than they are safeguarded now. It cannot be called a political message, since it only asks « specific application oi rights that are guaranteed implicitly by the Constitution. Yet the message is bound to create political opposition. It will come from persons, in and out of Congress, who pride themselves on their loyal Americanism and their reverence for the Constitution. Bui they will 1«, | lim i put to disprove Mr. Truman's contention that, while "our basic human freedoms are better cared for and more vigilantly defended than ever before" there is st in » a serious gap beiw ^ n our ideals and some of om- practices." That gap has existed since this republic was established. Mr. Truman said nothing ncw when he tcminAcA Congress that "not all group., of our Population are free from the f car O f violence. Not all groups are fr ce to live and work where they please NoL all groups enjoy the full privileges of citizenship alu , participation in the government under which they live." H is not surprising u u ,t tins' ,,„„ exists.. The ideals on which this government is founded are perhaps the S |f ,f an> ' nati0tl €Ve1 ' set f <>'' ' ? roU * hlhe W "me have UP l ° SIKi ' the - , *>rv, -,. born of ignorance and fear. and ft/""? 6 l ° bSnish i8m>rallce *nd fear from a nation of 140,000000 e.

Tax Proposals Herald Political Show-Off Season A lot of breath and a lot of newsprint have been squandered on discussions of the. income tax cuts, proposed by President Truman and the House of Representatives. Both the breath and the paper miffht have been saved. Mr. Truman knows perfectly well thut tiie Republican Congress would never approve his cut of $40 across the board, with higher coronation taxes to make up the loss in revenue. The House knew equally well that its whopping reduction of $6,500,000,000 not only would be vetoed, but would surely b« trimmed down by the Senate. All of which means that the silly season is again upon u.s. From now until November, both parties will be mixing; serious business with antics to impress the voters. With opposite parties controlling the executive and legislative brandies of the government, we can expect the ancient, invariable election-year pattern to be repealed. Each party will try to outdo the other in promises. Aid and comfort will be offered to the farmers,, to organized labor, to the veterans, to big business and little business- Democrats and Republicans will put phantom Christmas trees loaded with higher wages, lower prices, bigger subsidies, lower taxes, more housing, easier credit, and other visionary sugar plums. Both parties will be frantically kidding themselves, and hoping they are kidding the public, too. And probably a segment of the public will be deceived, at (bat. But there is another .segment of the public that can see what would happen if the phantom Christmas trees were real. Their top-heavy load would tumble tliem over immediately, of course. So this other segment is going to be more interested in seeing what the two parties will work out when they buckle down to realities. Foremost among the realities is a budget. There will be a lot of sharp and bitter clashes before it fan be agreed on. Whatever the final agreement, the budget total is going to be a big one. When that total i.s known the logical time 'to consider lax cuts will be 'at hand. Kven then, present conditions will present some special problems. All of us, for obvious personal reasons, would welcome an income lax cut. Millions of Americans are having a truly desperate time to make ends meet. But what would happen to pricey with billions of extra dollars in circulation? What would happen is money given to the consumers were taken from corporations that otherwise might expand operations, increase production, and help bring supply and demand more nearly inlo balance? How much relief, and what kind, will ease the tax burden without increasing inflation? The two parties in Washington must answer those serious questions, once they have stopped standing on their beads to impress the voters. He's New Around Here, Isn't He?
