TAX QUESTIONS
By Charles V. Stanton
Speakers at the AFL-CIO convention in Klamath Falls
"repeated hackneyed phrases lonff connected with opposition
to sales taxes. Governor Holmes also was reported to have
expressed pleasure concerning adoption of a new tax pro
gram which avoided a sales tax.
Opposition to the sales tax has long marked organized
labor's political position. The Democratic Party, which
has curried favor with organized labor almost to the point
of becoming a labor party, has, of course, opposed the
sales tax as a matter of political expediency.
Labor's opposition stems
rrtany years laid claim to second class economic position.
Through the long period of labor struggle, the laboring man
has been told he was underprivileged, underpaid, exploit
ed and oppressed. In earlier days of the struggle there
was much truth in the rating and classification. That same
reasoning, however, is not generally factual today.
Labor Status Changed
Many a workman today has higher personal income
than his employer. Profits on labor have risen out of all
proportion to the rate of business and industrial profits.
Today's laboring man is no longer a member of an under
privileged class. But every effort is made to preserve an
air of inferiority for propaganda and political purposes.
Considering the changed status of labor, it seems to
me that the traditional stand in opposition to sales taxes is
a disservice to the working man.
Labor is a commodity, the same as potatoes or auto
mobiles. The man who works for an employer is selling
his brains, his brawn and his skill for a price.
The man with special skills or knowledge rates higher
up the scale than the man who has only brawn to offer.
But the price paid for labor, regardless of classification,
depends upon the law of supply and demand.
When there are more jobs than laborers, employers bid
competitively for needed help, and wages go up. When
jobs are few and men who must hire out their skill and
brawn in order to eat can't find work, they will take lower
paying jobs in order to feed their families. So the price of
labor declines.
The laboring man is strictly dependent upon the avail
ability of work. We certainly have ample demonstration
of that fact in Oregon at this particular time.
Our lumber Industry, which controls our economy, is
in a temporary slump. Many people are unemployed.
Some men with skills which ordinarily rale them at higher
jobs, have been forced to take jobs down the scale in skill
and pay. .
Improvement Anticipated
We expect the present condition to be temoporary.
When lumber production again resumes at high level, we
"will have a labor shortage. Employment and wages will
rise in proportion to the availability of jobs.
Oregon, through its insistence upon high corporation
and income taxes, is discouraging new industry from lo
cating In the state. The last legislature added to the dif
ficulty by boosting income taxes in the range of manage
ment and supervisory personnel. Supervisors and manag
ers, usually have an important influence upon decisions as
to where industries will locate. Industry is not apt to lo
cate in areas where it will be difficult to find and keep
supervisory help, and it is obvious that men and women
capable of holding such positions are not coming to Ore
gon when, by locating in California or Washington, they
save themselves a thousand or more dollars annually.
Is the sales tax discriminatory? I believe not. Par
ticularly is it an equitable tax when coupled with a properly
adjusted income tax, in my opinion.
Does the' sales tax affect labor? Yes. It affects la
bor favorably, I believe, because industry and business are
more attracted to areas with favorable tax climate, there
fore producing more jobs and improving employment op
portunity. Is the sales tax a labor barrier? That question an
swers itself if we will look around us. Have laboring peo
ple shunned California, Washington or Arizona, three states
swimming in prosperity while we tread water, because
those states have sales taxes? Does tho man in need of
work, or hoping to benefit his personal economy, seek a
state without a sales tax, or does he seek a labor-short
area where jobs are plentiful?
If a sales tax could improve Oregon's economy and
produce more jobs, are not the old arguments, made obso
lete by changing conditions, actually a disservice to labor
when used for political purposes at this time?

In mid-September the West Ger

important European general elec

At stake will be the political fu

Very likely in the balance, too,
will be West Germany's continued
major participation in NATO and
its possible future cooperation in
the so-called common European

Defeat for Adenauer probably

new reasons for opposing unity if
the Socialists won. In that event,
the disillusioned winners might
turn as strongly to the West as
Adenauer has.
BUT Western diplomats prefer
the certainty of Adenauer's alle
giance to the shaky prospect of a
Social Democratic regime. The
known is always more attractive
than the unknown.
What they may well fear as
much or more than a socialist vic
tory, however, is a narrow squeak
for Adenauer which would put him
at the head of a fragile coalition
vulnerable to the first stiff opposi

result, since this outcome above all
will make difficult the framing and

Unhappily, the opinion polls tak

verdict is very much in the cards.
Both Adenauer's Christian Demo
crats and the Social Democrats
are showing about the same
strength, with roughly a fifth of
the voters split among many small
er parties or listed as undecided.
A HAIR BREADTH triumph for
Adenauer would not necessarily be
disastrous, for the old man's pow

could help him bull through pro

the strain on him would be great

Neuberger Urges
Bill Prohibiting
Highway Signs
WASHINGTON '.) Sens.
Clark iD-Pal and Neuberger (D
Ore) Friday urged Senate leaders
to act on a bill prohibiting sign
boards on the vast federal aid
highway system bctore the pres
ent session ends.
Neuberger pointed out that an
early Senate session conflicted
with a meeting of the Public
Works Committee when the "anli
billboard bill" was to ha,ve been
considered.
He urged Chairman Chaves
(D-N.M) to call another committee
session to act on the controversial
measure. Clark supported Neu
berger. Neuberger said the majority of
Americans want "some minimum
protection for the roadside beauty
and grandeur along 41.000 miles
of interstate highways now under
construction at a vast cost of 33
billion dollars "
Unless action is taken at this
session, he said, "the billboard
clutter will take over."
Chavez replied he had not
known of the early Senate session
when he called a committee meet
ing at the same hour. Senate
rules required the committee ses
sion. "I like beautiful scenery just
as well as he (Neuberger) does,"
Chaves assured the Senate.

this week for SMHI 000 to enable

transfer about two million dollars
of Public Health Service funds for
use against such an epidemic if
it begins to develop.

a conference in Williamsburg Vir
ginia to try to settle a grudge
dating back to the 18th century.
The group will talk about the old
oyster bed war between the states,
and also will discuss a new bat
tle over gambling boats on the
Potomac River. The oyster bed
troubles stem from an ancient
Maryland charge that Virginia
oystcrmen steal Maryland oystors.
Virginia counters that Maryland
which controls the Potomac
allows river gambling boats to
come too close to the Virginia
shore., v
Bad?
Well, if it was happening in the
Middle East, it would be VERY
bad. The ruckus might end in
I minor shooting. The minor shoot
' ing might end in a major shoot
ling. The maior shooting might end
in an ATOMIC WAR which might
destroy the world.

; WILL REM AiN the greatest na
ition on earth.
At this point, let's flash back
to that sentence about a grudge
that "dates back to the 18th cen
tury." When was the 18th century?
The answer is that it was back
in the 1700 s.
That suggests a question:
How come that the 1700's are
called the 18th century ... or
the 1800's the 19th century ... or
the 1900's the 20th century?
It's a bit puzzling. When peo
ple start talking about such-and-such
a century, I get all snarled
up like a kitten in a ball of yarn.
But when one tracks things back
to the beginning it becomes quite
simple.
For example:
Up to the end of the 99th year
A.D. is the first centurv. That is
to say, it is the FIRST hundred
years. The second hundred years
begins with the year 100. A 1 1
through the second 100 years it
remains the SECOND century,
even if the years are numbered in
the 100's. And so on.
I know it's simple, but every
time I try to untangle the cen
turies and find out just when some
thing happened I get all snarled
up again and have to go back
through the same old rigamarole.

Kennedy Says Dio
Took $396,000 Out
On Leaving Union
WASHINGTON Senate
rackets investigators said Friday
the old AFL United Auto Workers
Union allowed racketeer Johnny
Dio and two others to take along
$396,000 in union assets and prom
ises to pay as the price for leav
ing the union.
This sum-up was given by Rob
ert F. Kennedy, committee coun
sel, as the Senate committee re
cessed hearings for the weekend.
It followed testimony hy Earl
Heaton, outgoing president of the
Allied Industrial Workers union
(1AW), the successor organization
to the UAW-AFL. Heaton said
from what he'd seen mobster Dio
and teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa
were very friendly.
Heaton testified that Anthony
Doria, ousted AIW secretary
treasurer involved in welfare fund
scandals, was promised $80,000 as
a price for leaving the AIW.
Heaton said Doria actually has
received only $25,000, plus a union-owned
Cadillac, and is suing
for the balance.
Heaton said Dio got $16,000 when
he pulled out of the old UAW
AFL, and Angelo Inciso, Chicago,
was allowed to pull out a Chicago
local and take along its assets
of more than $300,000.
In a sidelight development a
former board member of the
UAW-AFL testified the union sold
its Milwaukee headquarters build
ing for $80,000 in 1955 only to see
it resold a few weeks later for
$115,000.
Sultan Meets
First Armed
Resistance
By SAM POPE BREWER
(Now York Times correspondent
representing the American press)
RADA, Oman ( The Sultan
of Muscat and Oman met the first
armed resistance Thursday to his
efforts to oust the would-be inde
pendent Imam of Oman.
Here at Rada village, in a lush
date grove less than two miles
south of Firq, the inhabitants first
capitulated. Then a small fort just
outside the village opened fire on
the Muscat troops.
As this cable was being written
at the roadside, skirmishing was
going on in a palm grove within
u00 yards. Troops of the Sultan's
Northern Frontier Force were
shooting it out with the Imam's
supporters holed up in a fort
among the palms.
Royal Air Force Venom jets
were boring in with repeated rock
et attacks to drive the rebels out
of their retreats.
Rada is within sight of Firq.
one of the strongest centers of
support for Imam Ghaleb Bin
Ali.
The combined forces of the Sul
tan of Muscat and Oman, trucial
Oman scouts and Britain over
awed the village of Kersha early
Thursday. They got an uncondi
tional pledge of loyalty to the
Sultan.
Kersha is an outpost of Firq,
which covers the approach to
Nizwa, the stronghold of the re

be issued, with the first sale be
ing made on Oregon's 100th anni
versary, Feb. 14, 1959." Norblad
said.
"I also requested that the first
