S. Poll or Real Estate Taxation? With the prospect that the federal government may have to resort to every means of taxation feasible under the constitution, the question has arisen whether poll and real estate taxes can be levied by the nation as well as the states. It is not recalled that congress has ever enacted laws calling for such taxes, but the Hampton Chronicle is quite right, at least theoretically, when it says the federal government can levy and collect such taxes, though most people assume that it cannot do so. However, the procedure under the constitution is complicated, and it is doubtless for that reason, at least in great part, that resort to such taxes has never been made. The ! sticker is the following provision of the constitution: No capitation or other direct tax shall be Jaid unless in proportion to the census. ticket next fall will help to keep voters in line for Herring. Undoubtedly also Kraschel is as much in need of Herring as Herring is of him, for it seems certain that Kraschel will seek, the governorship only as a stepping stone to the U. S. senate, his real aim being the success- orship to Senator Gillette, who has announced that he will not be a candidate to succeed himself when his present term expires hi 1944. Herring's support in that undertaking will be invaluable to Kraschel. Although the fact will not be avowed, it may be taken for granted that Herring and Kraschel have reached a binding understanding on their political relations during the next two years. All this is of deep interest not only to Iowa democrats but even more to the republicans. In fact it looks a good deal like forecast of a possible Pearl Harbor disaster for the state G. O. P., for there is no gainsaying that Herring and Kraschel make a powerful bombing team and the prospective republican defense setup seems none too promising.

However • congress could apparently make no exemp- i f^mment tions, because in such case the levy would boosts? not be in proportion to the census.
