It doesn't make a bit of difference whether the message you have is important or merely something trivial, the result is all the same. When your brain sends a message to the various organs of the body this message travels over the nervous system. It travels down the spinal cord and then along (the nerves until it raches its destination. If anything happens so this line is out of order the message does not get through. Do you know what can happen? When you twist your body your back bone twists because it is made of small particles that are intended ,to bend and twist in any direction, f Normally there is plenty of room between them i so that nerves can pass between them without I being pressed by the bones. But when something happens, a fall, for instance, that displaces one or more of these small bones then there isn't room between it and the next bone for the nerve to pass through and there is pressure on the nerve. This pressure shuts off brain stimulation from the organ to which the nerve leads. The Chiropractor removes this pressure by giving an adjustment. An adjustment is made with the hands. It is not painful and does not take long. A long list of enthusiastic patients testify to the success of Chiropractic treatments. To get well use Chiropractic and better yet, to stay well .use this scientific health service.

Traffic cops are generally considered to be hard-boiled, but one of them, the late Joseph Schneider of St. Louis, had a kind heart off duty, whatever may have been his attitude in a traffic jam. During his lifetime he adopted and reared 35 poor children. One of the most familiar exan l>les of that group of citizens who laugh nt hidden tuxes la the carefree motorist. If government spending breaks nil pence-time records, sending deficits mid public debts to new high murks, the car driver still hugs the cnmfnrtnhle delusion thnf somebody else Is paying the fiddler. "I pay no Income tax," snys he, "and own no storks of real estate. Taxes mean nothing to me." That inotorlsi nin.v be astonished to learn from I he federal government records flint lie and his fellow cur-owners paid !?ai.02fi,!ir>0 to federal tax collectors during the first nionl.li of the present year. These infernal revenue collections on cars, fuel, accessories, etc.. wore > substantially less in the pm-edlng Jan miry, the lignri- I'm lhat month being $20,(>23.s:>7.

The following mble shows how the car-owner's l;uge share of internal, revenue taxes is divided. The figures are grouped by the American Petroleum Institute from the tables of the U. S. Bureau of Internal Revenue. Following are the January.colter tions: Commodity Taxed Jan., 1936 Gasoline $1-4,008,534 Luoricating- oil 1,9S1,2<10 Pipe line oil shipments ... 946,13u Crude oil processed 77,273 Motor trucks ' 630,623 Motor cars and -cycles .-.,-.,. 6,G5I),!>H Motor parts and accessories 65a,34!l Tires 1,682,33S Inner tubes 386,506 Total $26,025,950 It will be seen from the above that, whether he knows It or not, the car owner pays tiiue different Federal taxes on his automobile and the fuel to ruu It. Manufacturers of curs and accessories und handlers of gasoline and oil, for I he most part, pass the taxes on to the individual car owner. In addition to these burdens the car owner, o; course, has to pay State gasoline taxes and pay for registration fees. State tuxes for gasoline In 1935 have been estimated at $030,000,000. The average car owner pays annually about $HO In taxes, most of which are hidden. If an average Is taken of gasoline prices and taxes In all States It will lie found that each' motorist pays a 40 per cent tax on every dollar's worth of gasoline he buys. Balrd U. Markhani, director of the Petroleum Industries Committee, recently said: "There Is a tendency on the : >art of motorists to protest a 1-cent increase In the price of gasoline while the majority of them continue to overlook a gasoline tax which Is the equivalent of a sales tax of 40 per cent on the retail price," Tile burden of taxes Is Increasing. The remedy Is in reduced governmental extravagant spending, and In the realization of every man that tie does have a real, and personal interest in the cutting out of wast- ng of billions by his government. Business Deals Retarded by Paternalism and Taxes There have been frequent statements from business leaders ex plaining that business expansion mid employment have been retarded by uncertainty as to how far the federal government has gone, or may go, into competition with private business. Another fear ex pressed was as to the effect on business of various Items of legislation particularly with relation to taxes. The following paragraph from a purchasing order by a large western contracting firm shows how these uncertainties operate on the every-day business transaction; "Seller agrees to indemnify and save buyer harmless, and to assume full responsibility for payment of all state and federal taxes for unemployment insurance, old age pensions, or any other social security legislation us to all employees engaged in (lie performance of this contract, and further agrees to meet all requirements that may be specified in regulations now or hereafter promulgated from time to time by administrative officials." What the President Said • About Centralized Power IVIr. Roosevelt said on October 20, 1932, "The Hoover Administration is committed to the idea that we ought to center control of everything in Washington as rapidly .as possible, the exact reverse of the Democratic concept." In his Message to Congress, January 3, 1936, President Roosevelt said: "We have returned the control of the Federal Government to the City of Washington."

KEMMEISKR Professor of International Flnnnre, IVlnc*. tun University, sift) Member Nn- tlnnal Advisory Council of Hie American Liberty I.cusiie. the increase in our public debt for the three years ending next June will be approximately equivn lent to $40 a minute from tlie datf Columbus discovered America lo the present time. Meanwhile our tuxes also have been increasing rapidly while our national Income out of Winch they are payable has been far below what it was before the depression, having declined every year but one from irrJH to l!).",l, and having averaged In current dollars 32 per cent lower'during the last three of these years than during the three years preceding. Hundreds of millions of dollars of our recently accumulated delici! have been incurred to pay for tbo production nt excessive costs of unproductive arid little needed public works and to compensate farmers for destroying liitl e |)i us , plowing under cotton, and for not producing crops and live stock. The burden of taxation Is increased to obtain funds to destroy the national wealth oul of which the taxes must be paid. Present Policy Danrjero'us. Although we have been experiencing a substantial growth of faxes during the last few years against which the public are showing Increasing opposition, our enormous increase in public-expenditures has been financed chiefly not out of taxation but by means of inflationary borrowing from the banks. In thi's fact lies the greatest danger ;bf our present, financial policy. ; :-'*<• The usual antidote for extravagant government expenditures is heavy taxation. The basic print* pie of Anglo-Saxon democracy''-IS control of the government by tftie.. people through their control of tn/i purse, namely of the taxes thBJP pay. - A'n eminent English historian lias called the power of the purse "the surest safeguard of freedom.'' When the members of Congress who vote for large expenditures of pub' : lie money are compelled at the same time to vote for additional taxes for meeting these expenditures, taxes which are distributed equitably among all classes of voters both rich and poor and that are consciously paid by the voters and not concealed In ' the form''.of Increased prices, then and then only do the members of-Congress (become watchdogs of the treasury and become careful and economical "In the • expenditures they authorize. The situation, however, is very different when a great part of the expenditures is financed through the sale of government debt to the banks which the banks pay for by Issuing hank notes, or, more importantly, by placing to the government's credit bank deposits that the government in turn p'ays out as it desires by means of checks. This practice when long continued spells inflation. Buy Luxurious Furnishings for Quoddy PWA Employes The Nation's taxpayers, footing the bill for billions of dollars of New Deal expenditures, were given nn unwitting glimpse behind the oflicial scenes when the War Department recently advertised for furnishings for workers' quarters on the PWA power project at Passa- maqnoddy, Maine. To those who are wondering how the richest and most powerful nation In the world can plunge into the abyss of huge governmental deficits, the specifications for Quoddy project furnishings are revealing. As a part of the "more abundant life" for the PWA workers in question, the War department found the following absolutely necessary: All wool blankets of "pastel green." with white taffeta rayon bindings, 80x00 inches and weighing 2%, pounds, no more and no less. The furniture to be used must be In colonial style, dull finish, and constructed of old-fashioned maple, while the fireplaces must harmonize with the colonial furnishings. The War Department also felt the need for "puffs," which It was explained, are otherwise known as comforts. These comforts must be stuffed with down of ducks and covered with "sun-fast, rust sateen." Reception rooms will be furnished with two great grandfather clocks each. These timepieces are to be either walnut, mahogany or maple. However, it is specified that they must be 7 feet tall, 24 Inches wide and IS inches deep. Dials of silver are essential. Pewter candlesticks are also rt>- quire'd, together with coffee tivMos card tables and davenports. On tlu> walls will be hung paintings bv "recognized masters." The War Department also so U "lit bids for "love-seats." • The Philadelphia Inquirer com menting editorially remarked O t some peculiar omissions.''Where are the gold-plated bath tubs?"
