ALGONA, IOWA, MARCH 24, 1932 ROAR AID BILL AS RAID SCHEME If Congressman Gllchrlst had done nothing else at this session of congress 'than to deliver a speech recently published in the Congresslon- aly Record, he would , have earned renominatlon next 'June as a public servant of great promise. A bill was pending to appropriate i vast sum of money for roads in the several states, and as uusal there was coupled with it a provision that every state receiving the aid must spend dollar for dollar, thus requiring additional taxation In both state and nation. , Bttl WonUn't Benefit Iowa. Congressman Gllchrtet was among congressmen who opposed this bill, and in the house he gave his reasons In a convincing and eloquent address, as follows: This is another time when we are called upon to vote upon a measure involving many millions of dollars without having been given sufficient time to consider the subject. I call the attention of the House to the fact that the bill was reported from the committee day before yesterday. In- le, hearings before the com- inltfee;,ahd;I;thlnk thlsle true of the report also, wereSibt available until about noon today. We have not been given opportunity to consult the highway officers or the highway commissions In our several states. We know not how we shall be affected by the bill. Take Iowa, for example. The road program for 1932 has already been made up, or practically so. Can this program under existing conditions be modified or changed? I can not say. I have had no opportunity to find out. I do believe, however, that even were we so minded we could not get much help this year from the appropriations Involved. And the bill by Its own limitations prevents a northern state like Iowa -from -performing 'inuch work next year,'because the time-limit for the work terminates in June, 1933; and we will have something like two and a half months only of available workable time next year within which we shall have time to do the work contemplated by the esteemed author of this bill, who hails from the sun-kissed elopes of Alabama, where work can be commenced very early In each year and can be prose- thereafter practically the whole time. Time for Consultation Needed. Furthermore, I call the attention of the House to the fact that the rank- Ing minority member of the committee on roads and highways is-sick and not able to be here today. I understand also that he was not able to be present In the committee during the consideration of the measure, Mr, Warren. Will the gentleman yield? Mr. Gllchrist. I yield. '-'' Mr: Warren. I wish to assure the gentleman that the ranking minority member did appear at the hearing on this bill. Mr. Gllchriat. I accept the statement of the gentleman. I was advised by one member that he was not present. In any event the gentleman is not here. He Is my colleague from. Iowa. We want and should have time to consult him. We have .not ^been able to do so, and before members are called upon to vote for the 'expenditure of hundreds, of millions of dollars I think it would be fair to .give them sufficient time to consider the proposition. For one, I tired of being compelled to vote upon measures without having had time to look Into them. I say this In all kindness to the committee. Why not allow ua opportunity to consult our constituents and public officers who have charge of these matters at home? Why not allow us a chance to take the advice of the minority ranking commltteeman, who might have something to say about the measure, and who would at all events give us some Information about the condl- tlpna,.existing in our home states? Regular Road Program Enough., I do not oppose good roads. It is clearly within the Jurisdiction of congress to establish post roads, and appropriations therefor are not opposed, by those of us who are against the present bill. But we have heretofore taken care of thU matter by liberal appropriations voted by the House. The usual program respect- Ing these things Is fully provided for. The federal appropriations for road building in 1931 were Increased many millions of dollars over those of 1930, and the federal government has been very generous In regard to this subject. The deficiency appropriation bill already passed by the House gave liberal federal aid to public roads and millions of dollars were'al- located to that purpose by that bill. The appropriation bill for the department of agriculture gave many millions more for the same purpose. We have done, and we will yet do, our full 'duty in aiding federal high,ways and the primary systems of the states.'". There -Istfno -emergency .on that subject. The'regular programMs sufficient. r •But, Mr. Chairman, this bin is Just another raid on the United States treasury. I am under no Illusions as to the 50-50 proposition contained herein. I know that any dollar which Is raised by taxes in Iowa, and is then rolled down here to this great capital at Washington into the hands of bureaucratic commissions and afterwards rolled back for expenditures out.there, will suffer great and grievous attrition. I know, also, that the federal dollars which the states are to get by virtue of the bill will not drop down like manna from the heavens above but, on the contrary, they will'-be'wrung by'tax-gatherers f ronj impoverished men and women now crying for relief. I also know that the state dollars with which to match them will come In great part from the swe'at and toll of those who perform the labor and who own the farms and the homes throughout our land. Bill Called "Another Bald." All along during thle session we •have .been reminded of .'the-condition of the public treasury. It is in the red more than $2,000,000,000, and the figures are staggering. The ways and means committee Is now at work with inventive skill devising new, additional, and ingenious methods for taxing a distressed people in order that the budget may be balanced And the bill is but another raid. If we must spend the people's money let us not spend it like drunken sailors upon shore leave. If we are to change the program and the precedents, and if we are to establish new procedures and make new allocations, then I call your attention to the fact that there is imperative neec for something to be done to provide and keep In repair the postal routes of our rural mail carriers, as well as and in addition to, the hundreds of thousands of miles of farm-to-market highways, so that we may help to revive business arid make it possible for country folks to enjoy a lit- tie of the privileges which good highways bring, Unnecessary Appropriations Scored There Is only one way to retrench and that Is to quit voting for new and additional appropriations. There s only one way to amend 'the situation, and that Is to lop off subsidies. There Is only one way. to economize and that is to quit spending money. There le only one way to. reduce taxes and that Is to reduce taxation. There Is today in this country an awful and tragic need for re- :renchment, because .economic disaster stalks the land like a pestilence at noonday. There la no Imperative need .for establishing; a. new, policy regarding ' primary 'highways, however grateful these might be In the sunny ,- times of , prosperity.. The, bill brings no relief to the ruined farms of this country, but rather sends the tax gatherer out to levy further tribute upon them and to put addi- D femelJi* II BED TOP tasFrowditsSuiH'iioi'ity For almost twenty years, white many kinds and different brands of •teel fence poets came and went, Red Tops have stood the gaff in the tape line with entire satisfaction to many thousands of users. •' • Y**r» aco. when the first Red Tops went into the fence line— then and «W tance^tfae work of post bole digging went out-rotting of fence p«U stopped, yearly r,epair$ and repbcements ' wj» no more frost heaving—the life of the fence was extended and; ilifililo^'wwiin^contr^attest. ," Y«ars ago before Red Tope actual value was known, there may hSv« bee^wine room for doubt.

The The structure of the bill Is such that the states themselves must raise like suma of money. This means taxation. This means bonds and more tax-free bonds so that children In swaddling clothes and even generations yet unborn •vrill be compelled to underwrite and pay for the folly and asinlnlty of their fathers. Oh^ we can be mighty fearless in visiting our sins upon those who shall come after us. Great Go* Demos Forgotten. Since I came here I have heard much about the great god, Demos; about the rights of the people of the states; about Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackeon and other men who have stood in the path of monarchy and autocracy and bureaucracy to defend,. the .people and the rights of the people 'of each state. But here a bill which will bribe the legislature of every state against their 'own right of self-determination. It stultifies their conscience. This money Is like the 30 pieces of silver that bought Judas and If any state does not take the money, then It will be penalized in favor of the states which do stultify themselves. If, on the other hand, any state accepts the money, then it will .be expected to spend dollar for dollar like sums of money upon like federal highways. Scheme Buns Twelve Years. The sums now to be advanced by Uncle Sam are to be reimbursed to hlhY'over a'perlod of 10 years; commencing with 1933, by the making of deductions from regular apportionments which the state might otherwise obtain in the future. The scheme is nicely tied up until 1948. Who knows whether the next congress or whether the seventy-fourth congress • will continue the federal highway appropriations upon a 50-50 basis? What right have we to tie the hands of the seventy-ninth congress 1 or anyother 'coingress? "WSiat right, have, we to impose our will upon the 'legislatures of the several states for the ensuing two decades? Let every congressman when he comes to vote look to 'his commission and to whether the can guarantee that any state after drawing-this bribe will 10 or 15 years hereafter carry out the nefarious arrangement by paying its allotments? When gentlemen talk about democracy, let them not act as autocrats, and let them not dictate the policies of future congresses and of future legislatures throughout the country. Look to the Consequences. I may well agree / fkat this is an emergency measure,' ibut the - emergency is one In the future, because ,lt',; establishes , v new-J( precedents *sand> creates new; imposts and levies addi- tional'tribute upon a tax-suffering people, and it fixes such tribute upon them for a period of almost two decades yet to come. Let us temper our present greed with a wholesome fear for future consequences. 'Let us 'no longer create In state and local agencies a spirit of parasitic dependence on the national government. Thla will necessarily lead to wastefulness in local administration. Let us not discount the future. Let us not mortgage posterity. Let us not be prodigal, for if we do the time is surely coming when we shall eat husks. in Stirring Address his ,oath and inquire authority exists, and from whence It emanates, that gives him leave to do this thing!
