"Glvs us the earth and we'll be
satisfied," promised C. W. Bariee, up
hold! njc the affirmative in a debate,
yesterday, before the Progressiva
business Men's club, on the amend
ment proposing a state department of
IndUHtry and public works to be sup
ported by a tax of not less than 10
Der cent on the estates of deceased
Lauchter greeted the assertion. Mr,
1 Barzee Quickly explained that -.vhat he
i meant was to Klve toilers right to
i work the land. In-debating the nega
tive side of the question. George C
Mason, manager of the Non-Partisan
Uazue. declared that all the wealthy
Men would move out of the state if
auch a tax should be Imposed on the
' estates which they would will to
heirs, and Mr. Bariee retorted that
If th wealthy' men moved away with
their money and left but the land the
pCor would prosper.
"I have named It the 'easy Job
bill" said Mr. Mason. "The problem
i Of unemployment Is serious but this
, bill does not propose the best way of
solving It. We do not want the hordes
Of the unemployed coming here from
ether states as they would come ir
Were known the state had a nice job
waiting for each of them. I know the
; intention Is lhat only eltlsens of Ore
' ton shall be given employment, but we
: have had much evidence that it is easy
to pretend to be citizens."
' Mr. Bafzee declared it only social
, Justice to give every man a chance to
' work and added that a tax on the
' estates of the deceased, while it would
i help the living, would not injure th
' dead and It would certainly be a good
thing tor the 'ordinary class of heirs
'. to have to work rather than live In
Idleness on the proceeds of the work
done by a parent or grandparent.
J h. R. Alderman, superintendent of
schools, announced to the? club that
Spanish will be taught at Lincoln high
