THE EUROPEAN DEBTS PROPAGANDA
I There is an intense propaganda 4eing carried on throughout
this country in favor of the cancellation of the debts due from
European " governments to the government of the United
tStates :; .
'J J Really due to the people of the United States, who subscribed
for the Liberty bonds and are now paying the taxes necessary
to 'keep up the interest on these bonds and provide for their
.. - -, This is a matter that will not be settled in a day. -It is likely
to persist for a long time perhaps for generations
t For the great body of the people of the 'United States will
not quickly make tip their minds that the propaganda is found
ed bn justice ' between nations 'and Rations or peoples and
people8;-between:man and.man; man here and -man over
there-7- , , -
For it "comes finally down "to that.
lit now appears,. from investigations made by the Senate
Judiciary Committee, that, WITHOUT EXCEPTION, all loans
mide to foreign governments were made illegally.
' A, i In no case were securities of foreign governments purchased.
' In no case was this government secured in any way other
than by,written memoranda signed by individuals, some of whom
represented no existing government at the time of their sig
nature.,;;. '.V . ' , lj ' , 'l - : w -;V :;
Not only were $8;000,000,000 loaned illegally before the
signing of the armistice, but after the armistice $1,500,000,000
more were loaned to foreign governments, though the responsible
men in our government knew they had not a vestige of author-,
ity;-these latter loans were "doubly illegal, illegal in that they
had no basic authority at all, and illegal in that, like the other
lbans they were not made "according to the provisions covering
the method ,by, which foreign leans should be made
And these latfer loans were used largely in financing com

the money to Belgium, on the condition set 'forth that Belgium
should use no part of the money in making any purchases in

It Is not always advisable to

the ball before the receiving team

OUR MODERN INSTITUTIONS
When the Cleveland adminis
tration' first attempted to impose
an income tax on the American
people the supreme court, on ac
count cf its Inquisitorial nature,
declared It unconstitutional. Be
fore it was finally adopted under
the presidency of William How
ard Taft a constitutional amend
ment was necessary to overcome
this' qblectlon.' s i
... Of course, a constitutional
amendment could not nullify this
disagreeable feature. The Income

THE SHORT STORY, JR.

THE SEARCH OF TOMASO
He was a bright-eyed Italian
boy with a quick smile at the
corners of his lips. He stood in
the! street belOw playing a vio
lin, while an older man. with an
evil face and a cogged slouch,
sang, after which Tomaso played
a couple of selections himself and
then passed . around his ragged
cap.'-' - ,
I had but to listen to him once
to know that he was no ordinary
street player, but a trained stu
dent of the violin, with a, really
wonderful , power for one so
young,' scarcely more than 13. He
was playing in one of the poor
est districts of the city, through
which I happened to be pissing at
the time. I was Interested at
once, and stepped up to talk to
the boy. I explained to him flat
I liked his playing and ! had a
friend who was a great violinist
and I was sure he would like to
hear him play. It he showed any
real talent I would bo gtad to
f You. wouM. hav thought any
toy would have been vir Joyed
it, the cliac.-. I.V .coked up at
me and shook his head ' lowly.
"No," he answered, in , perfect
English. "I thank you, but I can
net do it. It is better for me
to , play in the street, 1 must
stay." He had looked like a clev
er boy, and I was disgusted with
such laziness, so- I turned away
and forgot all about him for a
while- f i , ;." f f4
. The next 1 time I heard of
Tomaso it was from . my ' friend,
the violinist. . He, too, had heard
the boy playing and, told me how
he turned down, an offer ot help.
The violinist was very much in
terested in tbe boy and had tried
t? find but something about him,
but the lad had shut up like a
olam. ' ) h ;.
- Then One day my friend came
to see 'me, very much excited. TI
have found out about Tomaso.

himt The .little boy we were so
interested in, a year ago? He was
giving a recital, and he's a wonder:-

a revenue collector rendered it
acceptable to the nation.
Under there circumstances the
proper aim of congress should be
to minimize, as far aa possible,
ihis unpleasant prying into peo
ple's private affairs that must be
part of every Income tax -collection
scheme. No one, except for
the sake of stirring up trouble,
would attempt to add to the pop
ular irritation 1 by emphasizing
the inquisitorial nature of . the
Yet, posing as friends of the
people. La Follette and the radi
cal senators who follow his lead
would amend the present Income
tax law by an order publishing
the names and amounts paid' of
all liable to this tax.
The intention Is obvious to
tear away the privacy of Ameri
can individual life and insinuate
the principle of official 'espionage
and national state socialism,.'
For this is all that such, publi
city would accomplish. To publish
the incomes of all taxpayers
would no doubt1 gratify the curi
osity of gorIps, especially where
big names :were concerned or the
affairs of prominent families in
volved. 'Among the neighborhood
tlttletattlers the opportunity to
find out Just how much the fam
ily next door "had to live on would
popularize La Follette & Co.
Beyond conferring these , two
dubious advantages' on a small
section of the public the effect
of this inquisitorial measure
would simply be to exasperate the
already harassed income taxpay
ers and render more difficult and
unpleasant the work of the reve
nue collectors.! Nor, has It any
value at all as a check on the hon
esty of t the taxpayer. Los An

LIFE'S LITTLE IRONIES
Should a man on a salary of
S215 a month be able to save $50
of it to pay alimony to his ex
wife? On the question of saving
and rpendlng money, where could
one look for two more competent
authorities than John D. Rocke
feller and Henry Ford And the
payment of alimony is on prima
facie evidence a matter of saving
John D., than whom no one
knows better the value of money,
says that every man, no matter
how much or little he earns, can
always save a dime a day. He did
It himself while he was still a
struggling worker in the ranks.
On this principle he built up his
present fabulous fortune.
Now turn to. Henry Ford. He,
too, Is one of the financial wiz
ards of the centuries. And he
exclaim" that no one should save
a penny, that he should keep on
spending and - keep on earning,
that spending is an incentive to
further earning effort, and that
acting on this theory be himself
has become such a marvelous
Here we have two of the
avowed financial geniuses of the
ages both expressing views that
bear directly on the burning ques
tion of how much alimony a man
ought to be able to In a re
cent case tried In court the judge
was evidently a Rockefeller man,'
for he decided that the defendant
ought to be able to save $50 out
of $215 for the benefit of the pe
titioner. ' But, if the judge had been a
Henry Ford man, would he not
have held that no man could ex
pect to keep on spending and
earning, the only royal road to
competence, while saving that
fifty-a-month for nonproductive
purposes? And being hampered
in his program of spending more
and earning more, would not that
ex-husband be unfairly handicap-
cad In any hope he might enter
tain of duplicating the success of
And, after all, the Henry Ford
ambition is no less worthy than
the John D. Rockefeller ambition.
Our judges have a hard time of
It, even when their decisions rest
chiefly on points of law. In cases
where the human element 13 up
permost and where the authori
ties are more general than legal,
as in this alimony case, we can
only repeat the old riddle, "Who
shall decide when doctors dis
agree?" Life's little ironies, like hum
orous flashes to relieve tragedy,
crop out In almost every human
transaction. Nowhere are they
more expressive of the eerlo-com-edy
of everyday existence than in
the courts where domestic diffi
culties are aired and Ironed out.
In cases involving alimony we
may safely predict that husbands
lean to the Henry Ford and wives
have more faith in the Rockefel
IN A LIFETIME
