Salt lake City, Utah, Juno 27 — President Harditis*"ouUined hero last night what the federal gov<irnm(sit has accomplished in decreasing taxos and tho public debt and made a plea for action along 'Similar lines by the ates, municipalities and counties. The Executive said the federal government is "diligently seeking to prove Itself a -helpful example" In removing what ho. characterized ns the menace of mounliiii; -tuxes and growing public Indebtedness;' but added that this was not nlo .ua a federal problem, thai "the improvoil order must come into the units of government Into which the federal government never in .trudfs." Mr. Harding did not take 'up In hie ndflreKS any contemplated administration Program, for tax revlaloni in tho coming year, He did say, however, that the federal government woe working under a program which "Involves extinguishing a luilt billion of tho (public) debt each year" and as- seated that tho payments which tho British goverunu 'nt will make under the British-American debt settlement "will . correspondingly relieve the burden upon American taxpayers." Reduction In Debt. . TCe President declared no other country iu the world had been able to make such a record in public debt reduction as had the United States. Pointing to a reduction of moro than ouo lialf In federal taxes during tho poat two year:: as compared with the war load peak In l'J20, he declared •this woe the "i-erord of business administration to which the party now In control o? the administration fsols jusniiod in •rc -forririH with, iio small measure of satisfaction." The tEiriUsh dobt settlement, the .Executive went on. <haa beon\ "acclaimed all over tho world as one or the most notable and succoEsml fiscal accomplishments ever recorded," lie added that aside from reducing tho burden of American taxpayors, the settlement had been one of tho "most reassuring events elnco the armistice," coming as It did at a time ot "widespread uncertainty and misgiving throughout (lie world ot business everywhere." To tho Budget Bureau Mr. Harding attributed much of tho credit for getting government expenditures back to something ilko normal. Under this plan, lie declared, the administration has been able to "awaken a spirit of economy and efficiency in the public service." - Business Methods. " "Wo ...have introduced business methods in government,", he added, "and'tnstead'Of operating blindly and to suit individual department which have never visualised the government as a whole, and fok no concern about the raising of funds, we are scrutinizing, justifying, coordinating, and not only halting mounting cost, but making long n'.rldes in reducing the cost of. government activities. . "Perhaps tho budget system would not accomplish so much for taxing and (spending divisions^ svnaller the state, but n resolute commitment to strike «t all oxtravugauco an., expand public funds as ono would for hlniBelC in his personal and business affairs will accomplish wonders." Mgat«as furnished to him by bothi the Treasury and tho Census Bureau tho President staled, "Juake it perfectly plain that whereas the coat of federal Eovernment \» lanng srttfndlly roducod, tho cost of elate and local governments io being Just as steadily Increased, year by year." - Stato Revenues. "Take tho costs of state government," ho said. "I am informed ..that tho rovenues of the si'ites In 191! aggregated $S<i!i,000,('00, and that In- JH21 they had iucreimcd to $1)511,000,000; that is, they had Increased, 101 per cent, and every dollar ol that increase had to come in somo way or other from the public, The expenditures of the statos in 10KI aggregated $383,000,000, and in 1921 they wove, $1,005,000,000; an increase of 163 per cent. Tho lndelitedncd) ot the statos in 1913 amounted to $423,n«fl,0t)0 and In 1921 to $1,012,000,000, an Incrcaao of 139 par cent. "Turn now to the cost of city government. The const!.': bureau has complied data on thu governments of 227 of the large cities. It Is shown that those cities in 1913 collected $890,000,000 In all revenues, nuil In 1921 thoy collected $l,50s,000,000; that is, they were compelled to take 76 per cent moro in taxes in 1921 than they had taken in 1913. The same group ot cities expended in 1913, $1,010,000,000 and in 1921, $1,72<l,0OO,0U0--an Increase ot 71 per cent. The total di)bt of this group ot - cities In 1913 was $2,901,000,000, which by 1921 had risen to $4,334,000,000—an Increase of 49 per cent. ("County administration appears, from the rather limited Information which at this time the census authorities havo boen able to produce, to have ehown a much larger proportionate increase in cost and tax coHectlons uhan did the government of cities. rvjust Reduce Expenses. "Thoro i3 but ono way for the community finally to get back on its feet, and that is'to go seriously ah\>ut paying Its debts and reducing its expenses. That is what the world must face. The greatest and richost government must face it, and so must the humblest citizen. "If I could urge upon 4ho American people a single rule applicable to every one of therm as Individuate, and to every political or corporate unit ciuiOijg thonx, it would oo to learn tc spend somewhat ies,t than your ln- coniu all tho time. If you have debts, reduce them as rapidly as you can; if you are ono of tho fortiinatdTow who ' havo no debts, make it a rulo to savs something every year. "Keep your eye everlastingly on those who admiuister your govern- mentai uuita for you; your town, your country, yonr state, your national government. Make tbeui understand that you are applying tho rule of thrift and Eavings In your personal affairs, and require them to apply It in their man- j agement ot your public stfairs, Ji they fall, find other public servant* who will succeed. If thoy succeed, give them such encouragement and Inspiration, as will ba represented by a full measure of hcltrty appreciation for their efforts." Hard Boiled. The black-haired waitress, yary much out ot sorts, sailed haughtily up to tho table at which sat the grouchy customer, She slammed down the cutlery, snatched o napkin from a pilo and tossed It In front ot him. Then striking a lurious pose— "Whacha want?" sbn snapped. "Coupla eggs," growled tho, customer. "How yo want 'em?" "Just like you are."
