Income tax is only bales tax in disguise. ED M. SMITH ASD THE GROSS INCOME TAX QUESTION The Advance of May 24 carried an editorial entitled why the gross Income tax is tom-tom stuff. This . .was in answer to Roy A. Jarnagin, iof the Peterson Patriot, who had asked why the gross income tax : ;was not a fair tax. To refresh the reader's memory, Ihe Advance argued that the gross the general ___ The editorial then" asked "What is the matter <with general sales taxation?" and yreht on to say: "The matter with it is that it is .unfair to the less able to pay be- 'cause it requires of them a greater ' teacrifice than of the more able . . . Jf Mr. Jarnagin were caught off guard and asked whether he thought taxation ought to be based it is likely that 'Of course.' enougii, many people cannot see that a tax like the general sales tax makes hash of S.his principle. They do not think Beeply enough to see that a tax against everybody in the same proportion or at the same rate is not la tax based on ability to pay because it lets the rich man off with r's tax, one which raises the cost f the necessities of life to the oorest citizens, is fully justified." The only attempted justification f sales taxation worth noticing is hat it reaches the large number of eople who pay no property taxes. This is apparently the class Mr. Smith aims at in his illustration oncerning the Winterset home owner whose tax is $50 a year. There is not as much pure gold n the assay of this argument as might at first sight seem evident but this editorial is already too ong, and the point is therefore reserved for possible later comment The reader will get a hint of wha may be said if he will stop to con sider that, as all economists agree, tenants in fact pay property taxes just as owners do, though in a roundabout way as rent. This keeps their names off the tax books, and as a result the owners get credit to which they are not entitled. A good deal of the unbalanced tax thinking now current in Iowa may be The Colyum b* too D— 4 Setloni traced to this source. TIMELY TOPICS on ability to pay lie would answer, "But, curiously "less sacrifice than is required of the poor man. "Many people look at the proposed gross income tax of one-half ol one per cent and without thinking it out say, 'Why, what could be fairer than to tax everybody at the Bame rate?' The trouble is that the gross income tax or any other taxes general sales tax, while it at the same rate in monej', does not tax at the same rate in sacrifice, because it reduces the poor man's standard of living and does not touch that of the rich man. "What confuses people who do not think things out is that the tax rate is low. If instead of one-half W one per cent Mr. Jarnagin will assume a tax of 99 per cent he will see how it works out to an unfair thing as between the poor and the The democrats earnestly contend that the sales tax will be a replacement tax because it will take part of the tax burden off property. In a sense that is true, but to most people the term means a tax which levies toll on tho well to do and the rich and does not take as much from the common run of taxpayers as it gives. The net income tax is such a tax. The Northwood Anchor remarks that the real test on whether recent movies are wanted will come when such pictures now in the making are offered by the theaters. That's something for the crusaders for decency to think about. Will they patronize decent movies when they get them? If not, who will be to blame if indecency returns? King nor other potentate was ever more sincerely mourned than will- be Marie Dressier. Her pictures were clean, and her life too, as far as the public knows. Of all film favorites she was queen, for her character portrayals were most true to life. She has been filmdom's greatest product to date. The Hitler regime in Germany seems on the way to its fall.

W. Wlemer and V. A. Barret attended a double-header game between the Preager beer team, Des Molnes, and Forest City husband was seeing it in a Chicago theater. Her review, printed below, carries our own sentiments, which is as it should be—a man should always agree with his wife. Or should he? Here's what she says: As refreshing as a summer breeze, Shirley Temple, four-year- old prodigy of the screen, makes her third appearance in the cinema world in "Baby Takes a Bow," a Fox production. Three months ago Fox produced her in "Stand Up and Cheer," and later Paramount borrowed her for "Little Miss Marker." Blonde, pretty, and curly-headed, tion. The picture was sumptuously mounted, and the battle scenes were of that "sketchy," etherial quality which seems to be the last word in cinema warfare. The customers seemed to like the proceedings too, which as you should know by this time, means just nothing at all to us so far as criticism is concerned. But we'll let it go at that. W is of it —M. L. Curtis in Tleh. "Let us assume this rate and that a given poor man's income-is $1,000 a year and a given rich man's income a million a year Kow collect the tax, and the poor -man has left $10, while the ricl man has $10,000. This illustrates Ihe principle involved whether the itax be low or high." ,The foregoing summary will prepare readers for the comment by mrnan nature was not built to fit nto a strait-jacket. Whatever one may think of the new rail pension act it possesses one merit which must be acknowledged. It makes the worker contribute to it during his working years. This is something the promoters of the Iowa old age pension act overlooked. And that is the vital thing the matter with it The new state sales tax was condemned by Frank Miles, editor o the Iowa Legionaire, in a July Fourth address at Eagle Grove. I is not a fair tax, Mr. Miles pointed out, because it is not based on Ed M. Smith, of the Winterset Mad- Isonian, reprinted elsewhere on this page. Mr. Smith, former secretary of state who ran against ^Turner for the republican nomination for governor in 1930, has long been one o£ the ablest editorial writers in the state. As a rule bis views are conservative, and fellow editors were surprised last spring to find him supporting the cause of Knutson, the gross income taxer. Mr. Smith considers the Advance's illustration involving a 99 per cent tax rate far-fetched, Of course it is, but it was meant to be so, as the context indicates. The point was that because any conceivable general tax rate is comparatively low, many people hastily assume that it is fair, and il was therefore necessary to exaggerate the rate to make the illustration bring home the fact thai Euch taxation is unfair and unjusl to the less able to pay no matter •what the rate. The 4c state plus federal gas tax might be used as a more practica illustration. Nearly everyone who comments on this tax without stop fling to analyze it calls it a fair tax because all pay the same rate. In tact it is a highly unfair tax considered from the standpoint o: ability to pay. Anyone can see this who com pares the sacrifice involved in thi case of two men, one with an in come of $1,000 a year, the othe with a $10,000 income. Assume tha both travel 7500 miles in a year Each therefore pays $30 in ga taxes. Then is it not plain that the one is in effect taxed at the rate o three per cent of his income an the other only one-tenth as much Or at the rate of only .003 per cen «r ten mills? How can Mr. Smith or anyon else who believes in tax justice am acknowledges the principle of abil ity to pay defend anything lik this? Yet this unfairness and in justice is hidden in all general Bales or gross income taxation and is part of the very nature of such taxation so that it cannot be eliminated. Illustrating this point, Prof. Alcada Comstock's recent work on 'taxation in the modern state says: "The poorer people in post-war Britain give more than one-tonth of their incomes to the national exchequer. The moderately prosperous give up a little more than one-fiftieth, while the very rich give only a small fraction of per cent." Mr. Smith, by the way, might well add Professor Comstock's work to his tax library. In it he will discover why what is left to live on after one has paid taxes is a somewhat important matter, particularly to the less able to pay. Speaking of all forms of general Bales or gross income taxation, •Professor Comstock says: "The tax is shifted to the purchaser and so acts as a general consumption tax the weight of which is of course most difficult ten the poorest citizens to bear and least onerous for the well to do...

The only criticism we have against "Baby Takes a Bow" is the third-rate plot which associates Shirley with ex-convicts and detectives. It deals with the adventures of a reformed ex-convict (James Dunn), whose daughter (Shirley) unknowingly helps him dispose oi a stolen pearl necklace which has been planted in his apartment. We hope Shirley's next picture will do away with convicts anc gangsters and place her in a role her charm merits. T 'HE SOCIAL CALENDAR seems to blossom prodiguously Tues of at Forest City Sunday.

Herman Brandts to Lose Son— Alvin, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Brandt, died Friday afternoon from complications following an operation on one eye at Rochester, after whicri he lost the sight of the other eye. Funeral services were held in the German Reformed church Monday. He is survived by his parents, two brothers, and many other relatives. Birthday Party is Given— About 30 young people gathered at H.

PLAIN TALK, Des Moines, has not been the same paper in the last few numbers. Old George Gallarno may be sick, or taking a vacation, or he may have been "canned," or perhaps he just quit, or—horrid thought!—he may be dead. Anyway his old-fashioned genial, friendly, human touch is missing and missed, and Plain Talk without him is just another paper. INSPIRED doubtless by perusal of the w. k. Congressional Record, one Dal Devening, quoted in a Wisconsin paper,' relieves himself n rhyme— Late happenings would seem to show That (though I may be wrong) Man wants small hooey here below, Nor wants that little Long. A MIDDLE-WEST EDITOR explains the taking of a country editor to a madhouse. He had written $100 worth of free publicity about a musical entertainment, and for the final write-up the promoters brought him a program produced on a mimeograph.—Old Bill Casey in Knoxville Express. Believe it or not, that stunt has been nulled off several times right here in Algona within the last year; and in some cases not even a ticket! .The Algona Advance attempts to prove that a gross income tax is unjust by using a rather unique illustration. Assume, it says, "that the gross income tax rate is 90 per cent instead of one-half of one per cent." With this rate, the Advance argues that a man with a million dollar income would have $10,000 left after paying the 90 per cent tax while the little fellow with $1,000 annual income tax would only have $10.00 left. "This," the Advance says, "illustrates the principle involved whether the tax be low or high." We have a small library of books on taxation and confess to found. We doubt if one ever will be found, so involved and complicated is the task of raising millions for the support of government. The best tax plan ever devised can only hope to secure the maximum of tax justice and the minimum of tax injustice. Let us submit a different tax illustration assuming the same annual incomes used by Editor Dewel, viz: $1,000 and $1,000,000. In this illustration we will apply the illus- having given some study to involved subject but this is this the first time we have heard tax arguments advanced on the basis of what one had left after paying taxes. In these days of New Deal profligacy in public spending, maybe the time has come when we must weigh tax proposals from the residual angle. Mr. Dewel does some clear thinking and some good editorial writing, but his gross ia- come tax illustration is not quite up to his usual "mine run." In the first place, a gross income tax or any other law may be more correctly appraised by comparison of what it supplants in the law than by using a magnifying glass to find defects. A tax law without defects has not yet been tration to our present tax scheme which gross income seeks to sup- i>lan. We will not use fanciful rates like 90 per cent but will stick pretty close to what is going on in Iowa in this year 1934. The total tax levy varies. In Winterset it is approximately 50 mills. This is based on the ful assessed valuation (not on the one fourth, as under the old law). Now let's take a home valued at $1,000 The owner pays $50.00—not from income but regardless of income In fact he may be out of work anc delinquent in tax payments thousands are. In that case, the law will sell his home to pay the tax. How about the man with thi million annual income? If there is such a fellow in ail Iowa, 99 to 1 shot that he has bought tax frei bonds and pays nothing. No tin gross income tax plan isn't perfec but it is more so than the plan i would supplant.
