Th« question remiiins, however, whether any It.s.s obnoxious fovm oC taxation would iirovide Hie revenue necessary, to biiUincc Uie btidjvet. The situation in our I'l'dernl J-DVCMI- menl is not unlike that, ol' many of our states, counties, ami jother units of government. It seems to be our habit, v/hen times are KOOI! and money i. relatively easy to obtain, not to put our governmental houses in order in pi'oim- ration for the more difficult times that always come, but to spend recklessly H ml contract obligulicus which make our problem rmrlicularl.v tliflicull in time of depression. For example, hml war time incoinv: iax rates IJBOII maintained tbrouglioul the prosperous dccwlo following the war, much if not all of the war debt ' could have been wiped oul, and balancing of the budget would not be the dif-. . ficult matter it is now. ' ' At iliu prevent lime, facing a crisis, congress is planning to put income lax rates back up, but that action is loo late because taxable incomes have bucn so reduced that the new tax rales i\re not expBeted to produce the revenue yielded ,a few years ago by the lower rates. But government income "must meet government expenditures, and so we are faced with the apparail necessity 01 v-.Tviilderiiij; a new tax Hint will hurl business ami work an unfair hardship upon the poorest of our citi/.eus. cssaiy to correct them, it is not to be imagined that the remedy will comu of itself. If there is waste of public money that waste will continue .-'o long as those who pay the bills take less interest .in eliminating it than those who are its Ijcntliciarics Uke in havini; it continued. If there is lack of equality in the assessment and collection of taxes thai lack will remain so long as those who arc paying their fair share fail to insist thai others be made to do likewise. Those who benefit by inequality are not going to lake the initiative to end it. Fundamentally, as the committee of thirty-three has |x>inleii out, the problem in one of citizenship. The Koveroign voters of Missis>ippi county can have the kind of administration of public, affairs they want, and if they get some other kind it is their own fault. To achieve real progress they must lirst look into the situation carefully enough lo learn where their in- liTCsls lie, and then he ready to go down the lino on election day, di-regarding (he personal and jxililical considerations thai all too often crowd the all important question of good and economical government, into the background. By George Clark Sousa's Fame Secure, Pointing the Wag The committee named some weeks ago by County Jiulge /a! K. Harrison to investigate the collection and expenditure of public funds in Mississippi county has taken its jobs seriously. The information it has compiled and the thoughl that it has given to remedies for an ;uimiU«Uy bad situation . provide (he basis for genuine progress toward that efficiency and economy in the administration of public affairs which con.-titute a seldc'm realized ideal in these United Slates. But just because we have learned at least [some of Uie things lhat are wrong, and have had pointed out for us at least «. part of the program nee- OUT OUR WAY Deatli liiis claimed a number of distinguished Americans within the last year. Among them must certainly be reckoned the late John Philip Suusa. Sousa, most assuredly, will never be ranked among the great musicians, lie would not have ranked himself there. But it is probable tlial his name will be remembered for a long, long time — us long, very likely, as men still go to [War, or have armies, or hold any kind, of parades in which quick-stop 'marching tunes are essential. It lay in this man's genius to provide joint 1 of the most stirring inarch tunes that have ever been written. Thousands upon thousands of Americans have .stepped in time to their exciting bars; thousands upon thousands who are now unborn will do .so in the future. Sousa's fame muy He in a very narrow field, but il is about as .secure as a musician's can be. wrong by the selling of wheat on the board at Chicago." And the HOUSJ Labor Committee, at hearings c/n U'.e unemployment relief bill, beeam; perhaps the flret official group to hear thai most congressmen should be ihot. Oscar Amerlnger, editor of the American Guardian, reading sample letters from citizens protesting conditions, quoted one: "With lo* j exceptions Congress should t; put up agalntt n wall and a machine- gun (urned Icose. It would l>j" the best day's shooting ever heard of." Hoover Itoesn't Carry Cabh President Hoover never carries any money because he dossn't. have to use cash. There are no bills iu his coat and no quarters, halves, dimes or nickels among -the old coins which he carries habitually in his-lrouscrs pockel ...

In a hotel elevator you suddenly find yourself joined by someone dressed like George Washington, sword, wig, knee breeches and al! --a man, tall, stout and b;ely, smoking a cigarcl.
