New Tax Stamp Shows The Taxpayers' Plight The National Conference of Taxpayer Associations is currently distributing- throughout tlie nation a stamp winch commemorates the lowly taxpayer. It is a tax stamp. Although it cannot be affixed to a n y document o r piece of merchandise and carries no official weight, it can function on behalf of the taxpayer. But if affixed to a post card or letter to your congressman this stamp Vv'iU make its full unofficial weight felt. Printed in two shades of red, this stamp shows a taxpayer and his wife and child—all clad in barrels. In the background is the U.S. Treasury Building. The barrel-clad taxpayer holds in his hands a sign bearing these words: "It's no joke . . . I'm broke!" In Arkansas, these stamps are being distributed by tlie Stale Public Kx- pciulituve Council and newspapers throughout the stale. The stamps are tree, and may be obtained by calling at tlie Courier Xe\vs or writing the Arkansas Public Expenditure Council. 2:56 Hall Building, Little Hock. Idc-u of the stainji is to arouse a tax consciousness in the people who pay s.i they \vili lodge protests lo record- breaking federal spending on non-essentials and the resultant increased taxation. Lsc of these slumps on loiters or post ranis to Arkansas' Sens. Fulbright ami McClelian and Itep. Gathings will show them you mean it when you de- nvatHl their cvi-ry effort to bring a ro- lurn lo governmental economy. As John A. lindisill. executive vice president of the Public Kxpundiliire Oiiiiicil, explains it: "This plan repn-scnls an attempt by <>i:r organization to make vocal the expanding protest by taxpayers against wasteful and excessive government spending and the inevitable iv- sults ol' higher taxes or continued deficit spending. "\Vt> hope (o distribute the seals while people are still smarting from in- conic tax payments, to enable them to realize that more than 30 per cent of the average man's income disappears in taxes. The average man won't complain about paying for defense and tiie essential services of government. But he's fed up—fed up to the teeth—with I he billions of dollars wasted through unnecessary spending and waste." Wilson's Exit Will Make It Harder to Get Good Men Most rcnclion U> the re.sisjiiiilion of Defense Mobilize)' Charles E. Wilson stresses the immediate effect of Uiis move on the steel wiijje negotiations). Yel its real impact is a far wider thing. President 'I'mman has lost tile one man he prized above all as a production fiiic'f. Whatever advances our defense ont|)iiL nv.v have made durinK Wilson's tenure in Washington — and they arc substantial—have not brought us lo the peak of Hie program. We can only hope this effort will now jfo forward with the same vigorous spend Wilson sought to give il. If it does, it will be running largely on Wilson's momentum. President Truman has been lamenting for years that he cannot easily find top-grade men to fill important posts in Die federal government. Wilson was nn exception. Out of an extreme sense of patriotic duty, he assumed what many men would regard as a thankless Inir- den. His one big price was (hat lie be. allowed a generally free hand in pursuing his goals, His departure will hardly serve to encourage other men of business stature to make the sacrifice. Wilson left the government on a question of principle, the matter of whether we are to pay serious heed to the necessity for economic stability or merely give that objective empty lip service. If the latter is true, as seems the case, who will want to follow in Wilson's footsteps? Wilson probably had many reasons for (pulling. Hut undoubtedly one of the main ones was because he believed the proposed steel wage increase was a threat to the stabilisation program. Air. Truman's reply was simply that he did not see it thus. The President glibly declared he thought Hie increase could be paid for out of the "extraordinary high" profits of the steel companies—without a price boost—and therefore represented no potential breach in the stabilization front. This is pretty cavalier handling of a basic issue. T h e wage hike, recommended ty the Wage Stabilization Board, has not even been passed upon by Economic Stabilizer Roger Putnam, whose duty il is to measure the effect of the plan. Nor have the steel companies formally roipiested a price from Price Stabilizer Kills Arnall. Despite these facts, Air. Truman has In effect pro-judged the-companies' i.'fise with an offhand opinion-I h a t they liaven'l a leg to stand on, and has gone on to say that Putnam had better find that the wage boost won't hurl stabilization—since that is the way the President feels. Economic realists have no' doubt that if the steel increase is granted it will be followed by a similar pay boost for John I,. Lewis' miners, whose con- trad soon expires. We can expecl'olher major industries lo follow suit. Where this all fits in with any sane notion of "stabilization" is difficult to discern. To Air. Truman the objective appears to be a nebulous affair to bo honored wilh words but never closely adhered to when the chips are down. Wilson is a man who believes stability means stability. He has had the courage to stick by his guns throughout his Washington stay, no matter who was hurt. But apparently he is loo rich for the government's blood. The Administration cart's more for symbols than tor substance. Views of Others How's That Again? " "If You Don't See It—Nome lt—1'l!

In .spite of these delays, the gro'.vth of Europe's own defense effort, exclusive of U.S. aid, is shown in billions of dollars in tlie accompanying tabe. * • • TICK TOTAL American military aid appropriated for Western Europe in the first tjiree years of NATO — S10.3 billion - is roughly half of the 520 billion which Western Europe silent on its own defenses in this same period. Or it is a third of the combined European- American total expenditures for Actual deliveries of S3.4 billion worth of American military aid by July i. 1952 wiU be only n per cent of European expenditures.

The need for military security has prevented a breakdown on where NATO's 50 divisions are to come from. The U.S. six-division contribution is 12 per cent of this total. The 50-division figure does not include the 12 German divisions to be recruited next year. The question of whet tier Europe is contributing its share is moot. It can be Judged only by comparing complicated statistics on gross national product, per capita wealth and the percentage of income going i to taxes and to national defense. This year Europe is putting eight per cent of its gross national product into defense, the U.S. 15. But after making these sacrifices, the average American is left with $1800, the average European with only S300 to S80Q.

Producer Bob Welch and Director Frank Tashlin, who moulded a new Jane for "Son of Paleface,"— "we lowered the camera and discovered her legs" — told me that theyre writing her a starrinf fil- musical. The title: "Bustles and Bows." ''This girl is going to make Grable look like, nothing," Welch declared. "And .she nets," -said Tash- lin. "Even Howard Hughes is rav- ins* that we've given him a new girl." "Sou of Paleface" co-stars Jane, Bob Hope and Roy Rogers in a spicy western plot that Welch describes as a quadrangle.
