tbe whole matter In hi. research:
I have read with a great deal ot

U'Ren Is the nrsi one io taj

veracity or the figures which I have
presented at those meeting.

preaented by a single Ux advocate
who wa fair in hi. presentation of
the queatlon, but alway. aeem to con

prejudice against the heavy taxpayer

Mr U'Ren seems to be ery mucn
grieved over the fact that I questioned
the veracity of a atngle Ux advocate

plausible excuse for the erroneous
statement Mr. U'Ren say. be be
