Faulkner as Gadfly
With hla generous gesture last week In
contributing ft toward a "Tar and Feathers
fund for a whisky informer, William Faulk ....
ner, America's world-famed Nobel prize-win
ntng novelist, bids fair for the chair left
vacant when H. L. Mencken died.
There has been a lamentable dearth of
free-wheeling non-conformists in the country
of late. They've kept their flash and fire
under a bushel, In deference, no doubt, to ,
the prevailing dank frown of suspicion ready ,
to question the motives, associations and lm '
plications of anyone who stepped out of line.
We have taken everything too seriously, ever
since McCarthy. We didn't have the satires
of a Petroleum V. Nasby or the good humor
of a Will Rogers to make us laugh at our
selves. . .
. It hasn't been quite safe to be A Character.
So the emergence of Mr. Faulkner as a
bona-flde Charscter in the classic tradition
Is a salutary sign. Maybe It means that others
with off beat opinions, negative views, or
criticisms of the status quo will speak up.
Faulkner is an Ideal Individual to throw
out the challenge. He Is a genuine - red
blooded All-American type: smokes a pipe, ,
hunts, fishes; hasn't much use for social
amenities. He has not onlv written obscure
books that the critics still respectfullv try
to interpret, but also books with four-letter
words that when reprinted in pocket edi
tionsthe so-called common man has no
trouble st all understanding. In addition, he .
writes thought-provoking articles for maga
zines like Harper's about the Negro problem
(he's from Mississippi), and lectures here and
there to high-brow audiences (he wss at the
University of Oregon not long ago).
And now. he makes news by advocating -
secret police and Informers.

"What we need now, I suggest, is the In
tellectual ss Gadfly. The condition of our so
ciety is surey nearer to complacency than
to skepticism, to self-righteousness than to
self-doubt. We have been told too long that
there are things beyond criticism and that
the proper moral posture is one of reverence.
What we require now is a return to a more
carelesi and free-swinging American attitude
the attitude of the skeptical, irreverent, un
impressed maa of the frontier, for whom no
thing was sacred. What would Mark Twain
make of our current accumulation of pieties?
One begins to feel that in the cloying atmos
phere of 19H any assertion of individuality,
no matter how crude or vulgar, tends to be
liberating . . . In a time when society- Is
threatened by homogenization, there is a pow
erful case for the grouch, the grumbler, the
aour-puss, the curmudgeon, the non-constructive
critic,, the voice of dissent and the voice
'of protest." ,

They had picked Stevenson,
these two men said, not because
they expected him to make a
stirring campaign, but almost be
cause they could count on him
not to. The people of their ststes,
they explained, did hot wsnt the
kind of rip-snorting, issue-thumping,
dust rsising campaigning
that Harry Truman and Averell
Harriman wanted. In their stales,
the mood was an Eisenhower
mood, amiable, contented, anti
political and one had to say
it more than a little compla
cent. Stevenson's moderation
would not offend against that
mood. It would fall in with it

Eisenhower would have a hard
time limiting himself to a tele
vision campaign. He would be
cruelly pressed tor help on the
spot by every Republican candi

senator to dog-catcher. If Elsen
ures to Overdo, if he had another -
setback of some sort, then the
whole picture would change. And
then Stevenson, with his moder
ation making him a sort of Eisen
hower image, would have a real
chance. . , .,

cal parties. But an amating

nomination, when his first
declaration failed to rally much
support for Harriman. The result
is the definite demotion of Tru

course to results in November). -Another
result is to free Steven
son of the Truman incubus. Ad

Criticise Chamber at Commerce
To the Editor: '
If there were a Better Business
Bureau in Salem, and there
should be. it would appear that
the first organisation to be placed
on its black lift should be the
Salem Chamber of Commerce.
This group, which certainly
should be the epitome of honesty,
promised that the Queen of the
Willamette River Days festival
on July 4 would receive an "all-
expense trip to San Francisco".
"All expense" by any definition
would include transportation to
and from Saa Francisco includ
ins limousine service to the air
nnrfa and navmsnt fnf food and
T '.. J .. . .
lodging. All-expense wouia ana
incude a reasonable amount for
' tipping, transportation and inci-
dentals while in San Francisco.
The magnanimous Chamber of
Commerce, now that their gim
mick for obtaining free ticket
sellers has worked successfully,
are reneging. The food old
Chamber is offering out of the
goodness of their heart transpor
tation by air (which we under
stand is donated by t'nited Air
Lines and is costing the Chamber
nothing" and twenty-five dollars.
The $25.00 incidentally w a s
tendered grudgingly only after
long haggling and the statesman
story of August 7, 1956,
Seemingly the Salem news
papers having been an unwitting
partner to this hoax will be inter
ested in giving the matter some
publicity. We quote specifically
(although it was mentioned in
several other stories and played
up in talks by Chamber mem
bers) from the July 4, 195S
Statesman "The queen'i prize is
an all-expense trip to San Fran
cisco." The Chamber of Commerce, we
understand, does not deny that
the "all-Expense trip" wss prom
ised. Their excuse is that ex
penses were higher than expect
ed. Using this premise we as
sume that any of us whose ex
penses run higher than expected
can tell our creditors thia and
not pay our honest debts.

Oyer State Sales Tax Bill
V Aseedaleti rreas Writer
The - Legislature's Republican
leadership is primed to pass s 3
per cent sales tax bill, and the
Democrats already are making
this s major campaign issue.
A big part of the complicated
tax question will be Settled in
November, when the people will
vote on two tax measures that
were passed by the 19S5 Legisla
ture. After tha . people decide
these ; two questions, then the
Legislature will carry the ball.
One of these November mess
urea would amend the constitu
tion so that the Legislature could
put emergency clauses on tax
fassage ol this measure
would narmit the in
pas. a sales tax and have
become law Immediately, thus
blocking a referendum against it.
Cigarette Tax
The other would tax cigarettes
S cents a package.
The 19'5 Legislature, dominated
by Republicans, passed a 45 per
cent income surtax and reduced
personal exemption from $600 to
$500. Democratic candidates have
attacked tho surtax, . '--
The Democrats in the Legisla
ture proposed a surtax of 20 to
25 per cent. They fought the re
duction in exemptions on the
ground that it penalized families
with several children.
Since the tax commission esti
mates that the state will have a
surplus of 30 million dollars or
more when the biennlum ends
next June, the Democrats sre
saying they have proof that the
Republics tax bill was too se
vere. Bill Defended
Gov. Elmo Smith defends the
tax bill, saying that the surplus
amounts to only 7 per cent of the
state's budget. At one time, the
governor said he wants the 1957
Legislature to reduce the surtax,
and give a lot of the surplus to
There was much complaining
about the surtax this year, but
may not be so much next year.
Since the withholding tax now is
1 per ceqt. or double the old rate,
there won't be so much to pay
next year when you file your
returns on April 15.
The Legislative Interim Tax
Committee will recommend pass

many years has been trying to
get a sales tax passed. But the
people have voted against sales
levies five times.
Alternate Prapaaal !
The interim committee says
that if the people won't accept a
sales tax now. they can expect
even higher income taxes. How-;
ever, one research expert claims
that the present income tax rate, ;
along with the surtax, would pro-j

ture might give the Income tas
another boost.
The Republican want the enter
gency clause measure passed.
They say the present system, bv
giving the people a chance to kill
legislative tax measures, prevents
the Legislature from planning;
Democrats claim, however, that
the Republicans want the emer
gency clause power just to put
across their sales tax.
Of course, the Democrats might
j-win control of the House of Rep
resentatives, m that event, there
wouldn't be a cl.ance thnt a sales
tax bill would be passed.
There were 25 Democrats in the
M0US lasl session.
