THE URO8S INCOME TAX SCHKME AGAIN Discussing an Advance editorial o weeks ago which exposed th Vropoaed .gross income tax as noth ing but a' general sales, tax in dis culse, George. Oallarnp, oC Plai Talk, Dea Moines, says: . "We do not see the logic of con Stains the groas income tax wit th* so-called general sales tax. The. arc not. and cannot be, one and th some thing, for many a man re •eelves income not based on sales." Mr. Gallarno has apparently no studied bis gross Income. tax liter •tore closely. • If he will do so, or 1 •9te -win consult the nearest advo • -ol the "Ism," he will find, -quote from bulletin No. 3 of th fr+sa income tax association, tha "the investor SBL.LS the use o anoney." Note the word "sells. "When -the investor owns stocke o Tm»aii from which he derives incom SMI "sells" the use of his money an< is taxed on It. To quote again from ^he same bulletin, page 11: ~A stockholder purchases stock the corporation or SEL.LER pay a gross income tax o: i amount involved. Thereafter th funds remain in the custody of th -corporation for a CONSIDERATION acno-om as dividends, and such CON JSEOERATUQN should pay." Not •th* word "consideration," implying at continuing sale in return for divi deads. i theory which makes sales ou jtf income like this may seem far fetched, but it is the gross incom •taxers" theory, not ours, and, as Mr •Gallarno can see from the associa ttion's own literature, it is based o Ihe sales theory. . This is necessar ibecause the whole scheme is in fac nothing tut a general sales tax sail ing under a pretty title in order t •(deceive people who would recog •niae it for what is really is if it wer •called by Its right name, vslji fact, Mr. Gallarno will turn to page 27 o -the bulletin in question he will fin ; that by some inadvertent slip th •arathor himself refers to the schem as the "gross income SAL/ES tax instead of "gross income tax," t •elsewhere in the booklet. If Mr. Gallarno desires to pursu ibis studies farther^ let him buy o flborrow Prof. Alzada Comstock's lat fcook on Taxation Jn the Moder Starte and read Chapter 8 on sale ftaxes. He will find that the gros income tax is merely a form of th KWaeral sales tax, called "the turn •over tax" to distinguish it from oth •er kinds of sates taxes. It has bee tried abroad, particularly in -France and it was found that in periods o xwane prices the tax was pyramid *d. that is, every handler of good •above the ultimate consumer adde the tax to his prices, so that th Iiaal consumer paid the tax not one <nOy, as the Iowa advocates of th Pretty theory let it be inferred woul *• the case here, but several times •uJhe bulletin above cited frankly ad oaits ithat the proposed gross in «wne tax would be passed on to th wtimato consumer. As pointed out in the Advance' ejfctonal of two weeks ago the gross income, general sales, or turnove •tax. whatever it Is called, is unfai .because it is not based on ability t tpay. which has for a century l.eei «i« accepted goal of all tax reform tipeafcingv in ihis connection, of al lorms of sales taxes. Professor Com «toefc says: "They are unpopuUr i . which are sympathetic to democratic' taxation, partic warly in England and the Unite States. The reason lies in the fat- that th* tax is shifited to the pur »ft»«er, and so acts as a general con •wnption tax the weight of which i «io*t difficult for the poorer citizen, fear and least onerous for th -to-flo . . . The objection to th en the ground that It is a con er tax, one which raises the cos •«* the accessaries of life to th Poorest citizens, ds fully justified. 1 HOW THIS "SOAK" ABGU- MENT WOUKS OUT "When Uncle Bam", asks th -Hnmboldt Independent, "gets his In «wne taxes and sales taxes all fixed •wiU the state of Iowa soak the own -era of incomes another time?" I«et'j5 put it another way: Uncle «am exempts a living cranes from taxation. He taxes onl income above Jl.OOO for single me and women, above $2,500 for mar srioi men, under the new law; an married men get an additional ex emption of $400 for each dependen under 18. The proposed state in ecane tax contemplates similar ex in Tbere are probably 40,000,000 wag.i •earners in th e United States sup . porting 100.000,000 people, including themselves, who pay heavy property "taxes either as owners or tenants Iwt who make no more than these ^ygmptions many of them mud . "tess, notably farmers, especially in these times. These 100,000,000 peo i^e »re -the customers who make profits possible for the rest of ihe fwpnlation. So wouldn't it be a dirty shame foi JBw state as well as the nation to •demand that the fortunate few who are so situated that they make more . than a Jiving- contribute PART •pfnUT of their EXCESS to run the .govermnent which makes this pos- *ihle •gad protects them to the enjoyment of it? fhe Independent doesn't mean it, Of course, Ixioauge it hasn't thought ~4fe* $Mo£ out, but what its syoleui remark Amounts to is that we tx> ecwttb?u0 lotLiog M people able to WSf taxe* wiilKiut sacrifice of a M^l Aiperioafl Uvta|? ———'-*- ••imjjunr— klilm j—-U-'iT-ii-jT--'f!-j 7T^^^^^^^Bn^H^T^FT front people who cannot pay without sacrifice ^W^i'fttfce* theAi ftf H»* below that'sthndafd. , v < o i 80LVEU At IAS* Plain Talk, of Des Moines, edited by George Gailarno, says: , ,* /'We have wondered at ''time* whether SBrother Dewel; of the stith County Advance, does not have a 'ghost writer' when it conies < ti> •the discussion of an 'Income tax"' proposition and whether It is barely possible that that 'ghost writer,' 11 there is one, la Senator • Geo. W. Patterson. We make no accusations, but the Income tax "argument* In his paper sound so Pattersonlan-llke that we have Just been curious as to them." ' Well, 'that ' ought .to soothe George's wounded feelings, if any. W. Earl Hall, of the Mason City Globe-Gazette, has 'been proclaiming that George has a ghost writer in the Advance shop! Perhaps if the gentlemen 1 .would brush up on their economics a little they would discover that any two writers who base their .arguments on.the principles of that science are; apt -to agree for the simple reason that the fundamentals are the same for -everybody and - for' all cases. At any .rate Mr. Gallarno Is welcome to come and look over , our shoulders to verify that what we write is our o\vn, and we have no doubt that Senator Patterson" will accord a like privilege in his case to Mr. Hall. THE MAHSHALLTOWJr T.-lU: AND ITS LOGIC • i Sometimes we are almost forced to the conclusion that editorial wrlt-t ers whom we know to be intelligent deliberately attempt to deceive when they argue against the state income tax. '• Here's the Marshalltown. T.-R., for amplCj arguing for half a column's length that the next legislature shouldn't adopt the income tax because the times are hard. Well, good grief! No man ' will have to. pay it unless he has income above the living exemptions, will He? And If he does have it, then why', in the name of common sense', aren't such times as these all the more reason why he should pay on the EXCESS ONLY and thus shave a little off the burden of people who don't make more than a decent living income —if that!—and so have to live on less in order to pay unfairly burdensome property t taxee? Timely Topics "Over in Grundy county," says the Iowa 'Falls Citizen, "a guy has been bound over to the grand jury for talking too much about toanks. If such a performance is started in Hardin county, there will be no one out of jail." And the natural result: every Hardin county bank closed for waivers! The bonus army is breaking up and going home. ' With all due respect to the veterans, they have got what they deserved. An open attempt to browbeat a legislative body does not sit well in this country. The legislative committee 'on reduction of governmental expenditures in Iowa is considering recommendation of a proposal to make the terms of county officers four years. This would eliminate the cost of one election, but even so it may be doubted that the voters would approve it if they had a chance to express their view. Time, the weekly news magazine, says that if the United States forgives Europe's war debts, the cost to every American man, woman, ond child will average $78, or a total of $390 for a family of five. That's a sizeable cost for a people who didn't start a war. When Speaker Garner proposed to appropriate hundreds of millions for postoffice palaces in Podunk towns, the republican papers -promptly dubbed him Poetoffice Jack. That's the kind of apt campaign epithet which sticks in the public mind and often costs candidates many votes. th« t v > fcet'g Not be T H. C., OF TUBS Call Theatre c< umn, may sometimes feel'the .truth of the adage that a prophet Is not without honor save in hia own country. Comforting when nobody at home seems to mind is the thought that anyhow J. W. C., of the Rear Seat, reads his stuff and Indulges In occasional comment. Thus, twice recently the erudite and popular colyumist of the SipUx City Journal, has offered remarks. Read 'em and see- i EXHIBIT A. * * * and Phillips Holmes, taxi driver, Is about as convincing as -Senator Dickinson would -be making a "wet" speech.:—T. H. C. in Algona Advance. Yet, If Senator Borah Is -right about the republican platform; and Senator Dickinson does any campaigning on that platform, he,naturally will have to % make a few Speeches that by Senator Borah et al may be considered at least a little moist. , EXHIBIT B. .' Oh, there's nothing really shocking in this fast moving farce, unless the sight of feminine underwear and underpinnings takes your breath away.—T. H. C. in Algona Advance. Tut, tut, T. H. C. Nowadays, even on the street and in the living room, it Isn't feminine underwear and underpinnings that take the breath of an old-fashioned man away, but lack of them. THERE'S A HEAP of difference between cutting a $125.000 railroad president ten per cent and slicing 20c off a $2 a day section hand.— Marshalltown T.-R. •Hey, 'P. A. M., stick to your job of defending the rich and leave our line alone! Old Man Berfleld Fulls a Few More Fast Ones. [Ad in Iowa 'Palls Citizen.] One of my girl friends who does a lot of sewing was going to make a bathing suit, out of a big red handkerchief but she gave it up -because she hated to .waste .part of a good handkerchief ... A traveling man was telling me a hard luck story the other day, said the only orders he had In a week were those his wife gave him, she Is an awful bossy woman, that's the reason he is a traveling man . . . I dunno if I can stand four years more of republican prosperity, maybe I will vote for Roosevelt and get Be beer, I could stand a little of that, if I had a nickle . . . il went to church last Sunday, now laugh durn you, as is my custom, noticed that all the men in the choir who had clean shirts on took off their coats. IT'S A LONG TIME since I heard anyone say, "He is a good scout." I hope the saying 1 has gone into the EWIOKEIT. There's a word for J. W. C.'s vocabulary.—James Graham in Moville Mall. Thanks for the contribution, and now if the Mail man will give an exhibition of Scotch generosity by acquainting us with the meaning everybody'lUbe happy. It sounds as though it might be an almost perfect synonym for "oubliette."—J. W. C. in. S. C. J. Not a bad guess, Jawn. Eternity IS somewhat of a forgettery. "K>^'~*~~^L^'MFrl Among the Editors As Many a Farmer Sees It. Humboldt Chronicle—The federal agricultural deparment is out early this year telling the world what a big corn crop Iowa is going to have. It just seems to insist on giving advance information to speculators which will cause them to bid low on farm products. Smuil vs. Big; Banks. Spencer Reporter — The small town's bank means as much to its people as the big town bank means to its people, and it has its place' in the economy of the community and is entitled to its share of confidence and support. "Ghost Writer" Identified. Humboldt Independent—The Rplfe Arrow, remarked that it would suspend decision relative -to support of Henry Field till at found out who wrote his speeches. Evidently Henry heard about it, for he sent the Rolfe editor a picture of Mr. and Mrs Henry Field, and on it was an "x 1 opposite Henry, and, underneath the sentence: "The man who wrote Henry's speeches." Just Economic Law, That's All. Plain Talk, D. M.—This sudden rise in hog values, after a long stretch of very poor .prices, is another demonstration of the old maxim that all prices are gaugec by the rule of supply and demand. Add Examples Public Waste. Spencer News-Herald—One of the most glaring examples of waste 01 public money is the publication b> the Iowa secretary of state of a 16- page pamphlet giving the names oi all candidates nominated for state and district offices. The News-Herald received a copy, unsolicited, 'but t's as useless as earmuffs in fly time. "Bob" Complements Gov. Turner. R, S. Sherwood in iParkersburg Eclipse—Governor Turner is to • be congratulated on the etand be took at the recent republican convention. He stated plainly what we need and .cored the convention for the time t wasted on booze. It looked for a a$ though the republican >arty was more interested in bpos^ *-— to the welfare oft -the .cpim£ry. NOW AND THEN we make the acquaintance of a new column conductor. Something we wrote for the Rear Seat the other week brought us a letter from L. C. D., j another Rear Seat contributor. Leo j C. Dean'is his full name, and he is employed in a Sioux City printing shop. As an erstwhile country editor he can't get the news Ink 'off his fingers, so he writes a column called Doubling in Brass for the Early •News. We don't know where Early is, or why, nor do we get the significance of the column's title, but at any rate iL. C. D. qualified as a "brass" ex-pert the other week. Someone pointed out a hen to him as a "Plymouth Rockne," and, quick as that, he came back with "Does Chevrolet?" But Pray Go On, Did the Big Fellow Becoverl [Livermore Gazette.] The big, courteous fellow in charge of-the closed bank waited on a lady at the window this week who had not heard that it was not a going institution, and, pushing in some cash, said, "Here's the Aid money." The captain . in charge thought she said "egg" money, and he made an awful break: "Well, it looks as if the old hens had been laying pretty good lately." SENATOR Dickinson and Govern- of Turner are engaged in the old French game of passe de buck.—Old Bill Casey in Knoxville Express. Oh. Mr. Casey, your subscribers in France -will never understand you if you phrase it that way. You must say "passez le buck," savez vous? Or if "buck" ^is feminine, make it "la buck." This service is free, RECENTLY someone, in the Rear Seat, In the Sioux City Journal, wrote of having dug up and- eaten Indian "tepson," or "teepsee," or just plain wild turnip, on the Dakota prairies of a half century ago We cannot recall this edible wild vegetable of pioneer times, but we do remember eating wild onions which grew in the woods along the Boone down at Goldfleld. And who else recalls chewing the sheep sorrel or picking the wild strawberries which grew in the pastures of that far-gone day? Perhaps the boys and girls of today find them yet. but their elders never hear of them more. And the hazelnuts which once grew wild alongside streams: what has become of them? THESE SO-OALLBD literary highlights who strain after hifalutin, effects in language give us a pain In the neck. "The moon struck," writes Gertrude Stein [who muet have just had a steinful, or something], "whose job is cadence, mild autumn dusk, and red apples laughing in the lane." That one was simply too much *or L. C. D.-, who writes Doubling in Brass for the Early News, and he promptly went copkoo tpb, as; witness; "The rooster "brayed! the mouse a. gray dandruff! tall corn rollicking in the bass? ment." And now, doggone It, M?e are likewise Infected: "Th« sun whose inner consciousness Is treeless, a warm baby, aaci core ~ — gmJUng In Vb~ "" * ~ J — ~" to learn that every one of the 12 'filed an expense claim; one BUbse-' ejucntly returned 'the' money to the state. What la the ehahcb that If Mr, McFarland had been In the legislature at,the time he would not have followed the exatriple at, hie fellow democrats?! Very few members of the leglala- tue have so far returned {6 the State this expense, money; only halt a dozen ,or so, I believe. Some of them are dead. Many of them are broke; others badly bent. 1 am , one Who believes that since the law has been declared invalid the money must be returned. As to the many who have not returned the money, I feel.that the criticisms directed at them are hardly merited. Many of our best legislators are poor men. After they •have gone through an- expensive campaign and have stood their 1 expenses while attending 'the legislature, they are broke. And for them now to' assemble several hundred dollars with oats at nine cents and hogs at $3 a hundred is no easy task, if they are farmers,, as I am. Politics la Money-Loser. As to my own case, there are a few matters that my critics omit to mention. I have never made money in politics; I have lost instead. In the beginning of my 1 public work' the mortgage on my farm was around 18,000 net. It Is now nearly $H,000. Why the increase in debt? I will tell you how some of it came about. The 43rd General Assembly, realizing the need of revising our ancient and unjust revenue, laws, appointed a joint legislative -committee to make a thorough Investigation of the subject and report recommendations and bills to the 'next general assembly. I was appointed to serve oh that committee. Rv '* ' » Aside from actual expensed, "there was no provision whatever'to compensate the members for their" Work. I accepted the responslbilfty and did the work, realizing all th« time what a financial drain on' me this would be. We spent 100 days 6'f'ac- tual work on that committee" before the next assembly convened. Including the time going to-and-coming from committee meetings, we lost from our own affairs more than 100 days, iln the summer of 1929, for instance, I did not get. to spend a single day in my own harvest fields; instead I hired all the work done' out of my own pocket. At times I paid up to $4 and board -for help while I was away, doing public work for nothing. Lost $1,000 on Committee Work. I served on that committee, composed of six men, every one of whom had been against a state income tax; and finally we made our report, and the income tax was the backbone of that report—and every member of the committee signed the report! Many people from different parts of the United States have complimented us on that report, and it has since been the very foundation for Governor Turner's tax reform program. I do not miss It much,to say that •my labors on that tax report for 100 days between the.43rd and 44th sessions of the General Assembly, without pay, cost me fully $1,000. I soon discovered that one cannot leave important farm work during critical times without losses. Vote Against Payment,, When the 44th General Assembly convened there were many legisla- .tors who disapproved having a committee serve .so long on .such important work for nothing. Accordingly someone moved to pay, each member of the committee $300 as "partial compensation" for the work done. I voted against that' motion. The insidious propaganda now being circulated to the,effect that I have profited by my public work thus does me injustice. On the contrary my zeal to accomplish much needed tax reforms has Impoverished me. Works for the Under Dog, I have always worked for the underdog in the legislature. The special interests and the public utilities have always fought me. Big tax dodgers like the Marshalltown Times-Republican, the Mason City Globe-Gazette, and the Council Bluffs Non-Pareil -have been gunning for me for years. Such progress has been made In the fight for justice in our revenue -laws that •final success seems'certain at the next session. These tax Tlodgers are therefore alarmed. They 'have scanned my record during five regular sessions and two extra, sessions for some weak spot for an attack, but they have found nothing except this legislative expense act. Concerning this they have smart young writers like Earl Hall of Mason City, write scurrilous and false charges, and then my democratic opponent connives with them to scatter the poison over my district. Victory Is In 8J»ht. The tax reforms I have sponsored are now being baqked by Governor Dan Turner. They will, if enacted, save this district more than two millions every decade. 'But we have not yet won the battle. The biggest battle Is yet to come next winter. I am informed that a fund of some $150,000 to head off the reform movement, has been raised. J. W. Bettendorf, Davenport.. Is at the head of the strategy board of that group, and the principal speaker they have engaged lives in Cerro Gordo, the Mason City Globe-Gar zette's home county. I am somewhat curious to know how much of that $150,000 is going tp foe. spent Jn this district. I f IS A CtlfclQUS observation that , the .three talkies reviewed below, while extremely unimportant contributions to belles letters or the humble cause 'ol dramatic art, are nevertheless completely , satisfying as hot weather entertainment. ,-Not only that, but all three show a marked improvement in the art of photography and the technique of voice and' sound recording. That the materials With which these .talkies deal id trite arid trivial is of ' little consequence as compared With the broader aspects of the movies. , Another consideration of significance Is the toot that the Joe E. Brown picture was economically produced, probably the cheapest picture the young man has ever appeared In; yet It Is the moat enjoyable. It Is not at all .necessary that vast sums ;of nioney: be expended to make a feature enjoyable. 'Many of the talkies which cost the most have been the biggest flops. After all, , money, Is not the goal^and "jack" j doesn't make' a successful movie, ' any' more than material wealth makes a, worth-while man or wom- ,an.
