TRAFFIC CODE Texas takes its place among 32 other sister states which have seen the evolution of one of the country's greatest domestic problems highway traffic control. WASHINGTON By RAV TUCKER TAX — A tax • reduction measure even more unpalatable to President Trumnn than the recently vetoed program seems in prospect for next year, in view of the composition and known revenue attitudes of the outside advisory r.roup which House fiscal leaders have picked to assist the Ways and Means Committee in its preparation. The prospect of another defiance of the Chief Executive appears likely because the selection of civilian adviser.'-; wa.s a bipartisan, act. Representative Robert L. Doughton. North Carolina octogenarian and former head of the committee, joined with Chairman naming it. Harold L. and from Knulson in past associa- Go.v. Jester endorsed the- work of the 50th Legislature, signing the uniform traffic code bill. It is our opinion that, in coping with a problem so great as traffic regulation in the United States, this action by the several states is a logical step. As a problem of any sort develops and grows, it behooves a people to take drastic steps to curb it. Hence, violations of most of the provisions of the new code will result in fines ranging from ?! to §200 upon conviction. The penalty for hit-and-run driving; is imprisonment up to j for'the origina'r'passagc' ' of '"the five years and.'or fines up to ?>'"),000. There are many other provisions, and it mnv becomes necessary lor the peoplo to become educated to observing them. It is a good thin':' to see this cooperative spirit among the states. It is mailer which they themselves are fully capable of meeting. tion he knew well the viewpoint of the collaborationists. DOUGHTON— The fact is that Mr. Doughton. a conservative at heart, still exerts tremendous influence on Ways and Means. He vole:l SPEAKING OF TRAFFIC Speaking of traffic, a few months ago Tampa city officals made a rathe r detailed study of hazardous conditions along our street:-;. They made recommendations for changes in positions of stop signs, addition of others. We hope the Commission can see lit to have these plans put into effect. There are a number of dangerous arrangements in our street system. For instance, since the center plot was removed more than a year ago from West Francis, the traffic lias grown faster. But the streets running north and south do not have slop signs when- they cross West Francis.. At least three wrecks have occurred in the last',six months because there were no stop signs there. Moreover, there' is a stop sign on West Francis where tluit streel; meets North Frost St. We understand the Commission and the City Police some time ago agreed that the stop sign should be on Frost—:>mi it should be/ .But it is still on West Francis, a more or less through street. These corrections should be made, inasmuch as know exists. Kmitson measure, but felt he owed it to party loyally to uphold Mr. Truman's disapproving message. Had lie chosen to override- it is probable that the House would not have sustained Mr. Truman. He carried all but one Democrat, on i the committee with him. the ex- j ception being Representative Milton I H. West of Texas. A Cong-lit on defection would have meant a defeat for the While House, which was upheld by the narrow margin of Uvo voles. The head of (lie new. I committee is Ros\voll Maj;ill of 'York City.

"But I can't see anything unusual about the third," I said. "Look at her arms," said Canty, pleased.

HOILES Truman's Errors in His Explanation for Tax Veto President Truman's explanation for voicing the tax bill shows how extremely little he knows about business and justice. He says that from the standpoint, of government finance it is unsafe. President Trumnn does not seem 10 know that, there is n law of diminishing returns. That you can have taxes so high Hint the government, gets less instead of more. As an illustration, if tills news- papc-r \\-ero selling for $50 a copy, 11 wouldn't sell any. There is mor? income for the publisher by try- ins 'o keep the price down than by trying to run the price up. Just so, there would be more taxes for the government if taxes were reduced and were put on a more uniform basis. In other words, i! the government would discontinue 1 its- discrimination—its robbery in taxation. Of course riovernment surpluses should KO to pay off the debts. But there are two ways of bavins a surplus. One is to reduce the socialistic acts of the government that increase taxes and the oilier is to have a system of taxation that does not penalize a man for adding lo the wealth of the world. In other words, to have a system of laxalion that, would comply with the rule of law set, down in the Dorlarr.tidn of Independence. The President, :-,ays Ilia 1 , the tax reductions in the bill are neither fair nor equitable. The reductions were about 30 per cent on the )o\v income Kroup and about 10 per cent nn the bi^b income group. The base, however, was unfair to start with. Any |Hourc.<;;;ive or graduated tax I hat taxi's one individual ill a certain per cent of his income and another at another per cent is unfair, is inequitable and in the lonj.; run will produce le-.vs tax than a tax that is uniform—than a tax I hat. represents nil peoplo bein).; equal before the law. When the income lax was beinjf proposed in 18!)2, one of the Democratic leaders, Bourke Cockran, warned then that if this progressive taxation was established, Me- Caulay's prediction that this country would KO to ruin would come true.

EASY SLIDING CUH'l'AINS Curtains slide more easily on curtain rods that have been liyluly v.'i.xed. Waxing- aiso protects rods from rust. California produces G3 percent of all asparagus packed in the United States'. DOUBTFUL—Their reasons for going- slow in raising- exemptions or reducing tax burdens on "the iittlc fellows'' are two. First, they point out the large amount which Uncle Sam collects from this group, especially in yews when the more wealthy' nnd the corporations are undergoing bad times. Secondly, they believe that the great mass e>i' citizens should contribute in order to make them se; tax-conscious that they will operate as a brake against, public waste f,j:d extravagance. It is doubtful whether their recommendations on this; score will be accepted by Republicans or Democrats on Capitol Hill in the presidential and Cor><rrc£-ions.l re-election year of 1E43. Like all revenue men- j jjjp,. ing true.

A man who believes progressive taxalion that discrim- •inates against the American citi- y.ens is fair, ju:;l. r.nd equitable. We are reaping exactly what we are sowing.

Dewey is having vice-presidential difficulties assuming, of course, that he .should be the Republican presidential nominee in 1913. And most of his friends make that assumption as a result of his victory in the unofficial vote on. prospective candidates by G.O.P. delegates to the recent stale convention in Wisconsin. Although the Mew York executive would like Governor Earl Warren .'is his running-mule if he gets the pod, it is understood that the man AIR TRAVEL By Roger W. Babson Copyright—1917—Publishers Financial Bureau, Incorporated Babson Park, Mass,—In these days of helicopter taxicabs it is hard to believe that seventy-five; years ago We could count on taking twelve to fifteen minutes lor going a mile by ; horse and buggy. Unless we could afford to spend four hours "commuting" each clay, we did not , live even ten miles away from our work; twenty miles was out of the question. Today, with modern transportation, it is not uncommon to live Jin one state and work each day in knothf.-' OLD AND THE IVEW The automobile now with us over half a century ind still furnishing speedy transportation on the .country highways, has already be- slow and melfective m manv 'g, For example, to get fiom the Of gpston to its Logan An is now such an uncPifxm pio- by automobile that a helicopter has b£gn, making flights dnect to me fitoort frojn a. roof at the Bos - xS,« >-fovit-£n» rr*V**a f.tmp mvnivn/-) ton BU§ Center. TJjp time involved has been between o«0 jind two miu- r ?w\«.e by by one of war, on an immense scale. A new troop transport plane is planned to cairy fifty tons of cargo or -100 troops. Without refueling, it will flv more than 3,000 miles. The future promises enormous plane;-; v.hich will "go through" in any weather, flying- high above the storms because of their pressurized cabins. SAFETY INCREASING The four recent severe plane crashes have dimmed the safety record of the airlines but remember that as of December 104G. seven airlines in this country had a record of no deaths from accidents in the past decade. Our airlines know that their very existence' depends on constantly reducing risk ol accident. The National Safety Council announced in May of this year that not a. single cleath occurred in 1946 during the scheduled flights of sixteen U. S. airlines. They arc on the way to better safety records witli radar devices as an aid to landing and in preventing collisions. Recently, Howard Hughe,; of Tran.s World Airlines, offered to put his ne-.v anti-collision safety device at the disposal of o'.her companies as well as his own. A new type propallor will permit fast emergency stops. General Electric pute out a recorder which automatically records a flight. This will help to find out the cause of accident. It- will reveal actions of the pilot and the plane. It is said that most recent plane crashes have stemmed from errors in human judgement. This means even greater care is iK-eded in selection of pilots. For t hi y must combine qualities of character, high skill and responsibility. IH.VLTH REGULATIONS .•'>.'!• transportation develops new lu'dlth problems. Our health regu- ,Unions cannot be too .strict. Just one- ilea, louse, or mosquito can carry such diseases as yellow lever, or typlm/. We have heard in the past of the traveler to China returning vifh a rare Oriental disease. Today \ve are all opon to foreign plagues, lhe .Mexican importer who ihis Spring brought smallpox into N. V". traveled by bus. Supposedly, he w;is cxainiiKTl by U. S. health authorities as he came into the country. Infections in the very early states are HM easily recogniwd. Our health regulations and inspections uuist be especially strict in the future. For ;nen and women on IK KK or pleasure going- from one cumtry to another by rapid air travel can well be the carriers of infection. CONCLUSION So each development in transportation brings with it not- only its technical problems of operation, but problems of human safety and health. In the. small developments and in the million dollar researches it becomes our responsibility to see that scientific and commercial progress be directed more and more to the end of truly serving human health and happiness. The time is, approaching when certain airplane securities should be an attractive purchase. 1C Wilbur ,T. Bronx, writing in Iho Chicago Journal of Commerce, is right in his interpretation, then a worker could not be discharged if he failed to pay his dues. This I;; what Mr. Brons says in his column in the Chicago Journal ol Commerce: "Under the Taft-IIarlloy bill the employer would he required to discharge organised workers for o"o reason only: failure to pay /'««->•--. Unions would .siill he: free to I'xpri members for oilier causes, "ut It would no longer he possible i" deprive a man of his livelihood m<"-e!y because some local irnioi.' boss didn't approve the way he par'<>d his hair or because he entertained political views contrary to lhe union ideology of Iho moment." If Mr. Erons' interpretation be correct, this would bo quite a victory for freedom. Of course it seems ridiculous that the man ivould have to continue to pay chips when he didn't want to oav them, but under tnc present closed shop rule, he would have to be expelled if the union got sore at him. I hope Mr. Brons is right in his interpretation. SURE. J TO ALL PRACTICAL PURPOSES "E'6 NOT JUST READING RC BIN SON .If WHAT CN EAR-m ii THAT / GO JOIN YOU *'--. /SOT CN/ AT THE VIEW A.U.EY'0 HEAD?

The Dewey-Stassen clash in the Wisconsin test hf.p not improved relations between them, and they v.ere never close friends, possibly because they are too much alike. And yet, if Mr. Warren will not run. many G.O.P.-ers think that a ticket consisting of the two youngish men from Albany and St. Paul v.culd be their best bet. President Truman is also suffering from the sMine trouble. There is as yet no likely prospect on the Ucmoc'.Ti.tic side. And, in view of the manner in which he entered the White House, the delegates and'the voters may give more thought to the identity of the second-place runner than they have in recent years.
