JUONDAV, FEHUUAKY J9, l<Mr> Would Keep Tax On Tractor Gas Says Georgia Measure Would Open Way For Gasoline Racket ATLANTA, Feu. 19 (UP)— Slate Revenue Commissioner Eugene Cook awns that n, pending Kou.se bill to exempt gasoline used in farm l-nictors would open the way for •• Ba.soltPo racket in Georgia. 'Hie measure, wliich carries the 'liflarsemeiit of: 108 state reprcseii- '•allvei. hns been given a favorable wmnilltec report: .Governor Arnall has warned legislators to stop draining the ••tale treasury by wliat he calls impractical legislation," Arnall and Cook both warn that !xcmi>Uoii ol form and tractor ja.soline would cost, the .state 1111 Mlinmtcci 3 million dollars in 'xxex, and (hey brand the exemption as "daiiBeious legislation." ''The actual revenue loss would >e huge, Cook say.?, compared to •lie Dolicint! expense it would in- :ur. Cook says evon an army to po- Ice the exemption law could not 31-evcnt al least five per cent of ;he farmers from isoing crooked. Cook says (ho bill is an openiii" wedge for practically eliminating i large amount of the state's sa.so- ine from taxes, then the gdiners ind millers and other farm groups A'llt also demand Rasolinc lax'cx- miptions. He adds that in a few rears we'll have the state treasury Iwindlcrt beyond belief. Tiie author of the bill, \v.- 51. XoughUm of Washington, says the Jill is an inducement (o keep farni- J.rs In Georgia. He rites cases vhcrc the state's farming population has dwindled in Ihc past feu- rears. Koughton says the exemption .'ould reduce Hie slatc'i revenue ?nly by $400,000. He charges the Hevenue Ucn.irtmeiit'.s estimate of million as "ridiculous." He defends his bill by claiinini; ax free gasoline would be used }y farmers instead of cheaper fuels, J'hich would reduce the wear on -raclor motors. KfA'TimVILLE COURIER NEWS ' *«0« W WASHINGTON 'Government Corporations' Ilj- TKTEK EDSON NKA Wiiihlnji-ian Correspondent WASHINOIXJN. D. C. — Tracing the development of the mure of "government corporations" (he fourth arm of the government which Senators Hurry P. Byrtl of Virginia nnd Hugh Butler of Nebraska now seek to bring under control with new legislation-shows exactly how one innocent little seed of an idea for a new federal bureau can mushroom all over the place till It becomes the biggest financial aspidistra In the world. Hack In Teddy Roosevelt's time the government took over the Ptm- ama Railroad, and ran 11, u W ns the first, and for a long time the only government corporation Prior lo World War I all government activities were carried on In the regular departments headed by cabinet officers. But in 1016 the first Federal Land Banks were chartered. They were privately ouned, but government controlled", which seemed innocent enough When the United Stales 'cot dragged into- the first European fracas, the government corporation Klca really took hold. First came the War Finance Corporation then the Emergency Fleet Corporation U. s. Housing Corporation, Spruce Production Corporation and a few others. 1 fKW SUCH BUREAUS IN' THE 20's i All were liquidated after the war except the Federal Land Banks and the Fleet Corporation, which later became the Maritime Commission. I he 1920's were relatively free from 1 this sort, of stuff, until Herbert, Hoover came along and started the , Inland Waterways Corporation . while he was Secretary of Com' merce, anj the Reconstruction Finance Corporation while he was President. 'Hie depression really saw the gov-corp idea take hold. The Nn- tional industrial Recovery Act gave President Roosevelt powers to cre- jate new businesses. Among his first I wns the Commodity Credit Cor|»- ratlon, set up to borrow money from tli-C and loan it t 0 iarmer.s. Then Congress expanded CCC, gave it Senate Posses Stricter Law On'Marriages LITTLE ROCK. Feb. 19 (UP) — \rknnsas soon will join the growing ist of stales which have tightened jp their marriage laws. Yesterday the state Senate passed i bill requiring that couples dc- iiring to marry file a three-day notice of ; intention. The measure ili'cady has passed the House, and Governor Laney K expected to sign .he proposal e.irly next week. The bill, written by Mrs. E. L. Buchanan, Nevada County reprc- ienlnlivD, rcnuircs thai no marri- ige license may he issued except ipon filing of a notice of iiiiention a wed three days before issuance. Jowei'cr. a provision allows a.coiin- ,y, probate, circuit or chancery ludge to waive the three-day notice 'cquirement. Violations of the restrictions by :oimty clerks would be a misde- neanqr, and punishable by a fine if. from S100 to $600. An emergency clause, which would lave put the bill into effect after he governor's signature, failed to >ass. But Senator Ernest Mancr of lot Sprinys says lie will move for •ccousidcration of the vote by which t failed. powers it didn't realize it was bo- stowing—and the next thing Congress knew, here was CCC paying subsidies and was the Congressional farm bloc face red. Today there are 22 of these gov- corps and credit agencies doing business at pretty iancy stands. Sixteen are in the credit and banking business, nine deal („ war supplies, four in insurance, four In transportation, four in construction, four In economic rehabilitation, one in power, one In retail distribution and one In publicity. This last—Pren- cinradlo, inc.. Is n honey. Set up in (he Rockefeller office, it Is au- thorised to do darn near aiiylhini! it can Ihtnk of In the fields of communications and public relations. LITTLE 1NTOKMAT10N AVATLAIII.!-; Granting that all these big businesses have been ably nnd honestly run they still piwciil an Inherent danger because they are definitely not rmi in gold fish' bowls and Information about their operations is hard to get because they don't have lo report back lo Congress on whnt they have done what their asse'.s are liow much tliey have lost, or where they're B oing. incidentally, 37 of these corporations were created by Conere.ss l|., c |f, S() you CTU see whose fault the present condition of these gov-corps really is. The best approximate balance anybody has been able (o strike on all thc-e operation* is that 35 of the government corporations show otal tio/icfU of over 15 billion dollars, it really isn't quite that bad because about 10 billions of this win have to be charged up to the cost of the war. And the other government corporations show a total profit of G8>t million dollars Out of the Byrd-Butler bill Ihe George bill to separate the lonn agencies from Department ol commerce, the «econ ( | Wallace-Jones fracas.
