    Birch Society Speaker Attacks
U.S. Income Tax At Local Meet
News-Review Staf Writer
The John Birch Society had its
chance to air its ideas Tuesday
night at the regular meeting of
the Roseburg Jaycees and air it
did, for about two and a half
Representing the Birchers was
Leslie Fleming, coordinator for the
society for the Oregon and South
ern Washington areas, and stand-in
for the scheduled speaker, Stacy
Adams of Yoncalla, who is a mem
ber of the Cottage Grove clan.
Adams was at the last minute de
tained from making an appear
ance. He did however, write an
opening speech which the Bircher
read. Fleming's job in the society
is to organize new groups and to
travel around giving talks.
Fleming, a soft-spoken man rare
ly raising his voice except to ac
centuate one of his beliefs, start
ed his talk by attacking the United
States tax system.
"Karl Marx devised the graduat
ed income tax for the destruction
of the capitalistic system, or our

Kiwanians Hear
Football Coach
"A heck of a football team."
These words were issued Tues
day noon by Roseburg High School
bead football coach Roy Thompson
in describing prospects for the
coming RHS season to members of
Roseburg Kiwanis Club.
Thompson introduced Daryl
Thornton and Jim Brackins of his
grid staff and then read excerpts
from :a Knute Rockne speech,
made many years ago, which ex
plained the philosophy of the foot
ball program at Roseburg High
He then went on to tell that the
varsity squad this season will have
only between 25 and 30 players
while the rest of the more than 80
candidates will play with the Jay
vees or the Sophs. The varsity will
be limited, he said, so they can be
better coached, play more and see
platoon action.
Thompson said the staff is op
timistic concerning the coming sea
son and indicated the only serious
problems they will- have will be
replacing Paul Brothers and Doug
John. He then proceeded to tell
about individuals available for the
various positions and he didn't in
dicate that any serious weakness
is bothering the staff at this time.
He said he is confident, his staff
is confident and the athletes ar
confident. He emphasized that fun
damentals have always been
stressed at RHS and will be this
season. He also said defense is the
key to the coming season and that,
if the offense cannot move the
hall, the defense will have to take
the ball from the opposition.
In closing, Thompson said this
year's squad has tremendous mor
ale, good discipline and will be a
good football (earn.
In response to questions, Thomp
son told of experiences with the
Shrine All-Star squad and how
proud he was of the Roseburg rep
resentatives on the state team.

way of life," he said.
Traces Tax History
'The first American income tax
law was passed , by Congress in
1894 but declared unconstitutional
by the Supreme Court. The next
income tax law was made consti
tutional by virtue of being a con
stitutional amendment, ratified by
the legislatures of the states."
Actually, this was not ap
proved by the governed, but car
ried by default because the pack
age was sold to the people as "a
soak the rich policy, and the gov
erned did not object."
He went on to say that there
was no limit placed on the tax be
cause it was argued it would never
go over two per cent.
Because there was no limit on
this tax, and it was painless, our
federal, bureaucracy grew into a
huge machine, often without the
consent of the governed, making
an ideal situation and climate for
Commuist infiltration with t he
destruction Marx had anticipated,"
he said.
The speaker jumped from in
come taxes to patting the society
on the' back. "There are numer
ous groups and individuals fight
ing this menace. The John Birch
Society has been the most effective
one of all the groups. Do you un
derstand then, why the main at
tack on the anti-Communists .had
to be directed against the John
Birch Society? Smear tactics and
double talk has been the conspira
cy's weapons. But because Amer
icans are what they are, these tac
tics did not work 100 per cent
effectively. More and more people
are looking behind the smear
screen and liking what they find
and becoming John Birchers."
Answers Questions
A question and answer period fol
lowed Fleming's speech.
The very first question was
whether the John Birch Society is
formed of crackpots or subversives.
In answer to this he quoted a
story appearing, in a publication
on California's verdict of the
group. He said, according to "the
article, The John Birch Society is
neither secret, Fascist, subversive,
un-American nor anti-Semitic, ' as
decided by a California legislative
body. And most of its members
are not mentally unstable, crack
pots or hysterical about the
Mucins Ul CUlllIIIUIIiaill. .
Back on taxes, the Bircher stat
ed the answer to maintaining rev
enue while cutting individual in
come taxes is for the government
to sell the 1.900 odd losing business
es it owns to the public and col
lect more corporate taxes. He
says the government loses some
$42 billion a year running these
businesses, when they could make
$263 billion in revenue by 'selling
them. ' '
Wants Warren Out
On the subject of impeaching
Phipf .Tusflrp TSarl Warren, the
speaker said Warren is known to
have voted pro-communist, as me
head of the Supreme Court, by
removing Warren from office, it
will "give us back the court." He
said his group is critical chiefly of
the court's rulings. He said the
American Bar Association has also
disagreed with its rulings.
.Fleming stated the John Birch
Society is neither for or against
either political party and does not
claim to be one itself. At this point
he said the society at times has
been against the leaders of both
parties, both past and. present.
"They are both socialistic parties,"
Fleming said.
He- called for less government,
more state's rights and eliminat
ing bureaucracy arid the commu
nism threat. And. for once, the
speaker raised his voice on this
shotaun-carrvine bandit robbed a
branch of the Citizens and South
ern Bank of $19,000 recently and
escaped, although an alarm siren
sounded while the robbery was in
progress, a hidden camera took
pictures of him and a teller man
aged to slip a time-delay smoke
capsule in the money bag.
