PLAY-UTILITY OF THE CARD-BOARD BOX . .
By Sirs, lliclinrd K. Thomas.
rmHE following editorial on tax revision efforts at Washing-
ton seems of particular interest and is here reproduced
for the reason it gives the view of a very important repub
lican newspaper on a subject that is being commented upon
Tax revision, as the house ways and means committee has
devised it and given it to the senate, affords relief at the bottom
of the pyramid and at the top. Both at the bottom and the top
of incomes .there are organizations, communities of interest
groups and olidarity of interest.
At the top are organizations of money ; at the bottom organ
izations of labor. The house has granted reductions in taxation
to heads of families with incomes under $3,900. The reduction
calculated for a married taxpayer, without considering exemp
tion for dependents, is $20 a year.
That reduces a tax of $24 to and one of $76 to $56'. The
relief in the first case almost wipes out the taxes and in the lat
ter is a real relief.
The revision thereupon jumps from this classification over
a great middle classification and resumes its functions when it
reaches incomes of $66,000 and over. From that point upward
there is a reduction of surtaxes which Mill cut down the weal
thy man's burden with increasing reduction as his income in
creases. The government has taken as high as 63 per cent of a
man's income. It is now proposed to take no more than 32 per
cent in surtaxes on any income.
At the top of the income classification there are organiza
tions of men with money. They are called various things, all of
which are grouped, in the convenient terms of radicalism, under
the one term capitalism.
These organizations, loose or tight, are capable of acting to
gether just as the organizations of low salaried men are capable
of working together. Many farmers will be found in the class
under $3900. The farmers will say this year that they all will
be found there. There also will be artisans and laborers, many
trades union men, etc. Any married taxpayer who earns $75 a
week will find a substantial reduction in his taxation, one which
will impress him as a decided change and which, presumably,
w ill incline him towards the authority which helped him out.
In this classification of incomes is really what the politicians
know as the 'vote" of the country. There is the man with the
dinner pail, the farmer with a Ford or a phonograph, and nearly
nil the people who have a way of getting mad every wo or four
years and causing landslides.
At the top are the organizations which finance political cam
paigns, the men of comfortable incomes who take alarm at
ideas and give to campaign funds which will be devoted to what
they hope will be sound, conservative government.
The very wise tax revisionists, very wise politically, have
given the contributors reason to rejoice that the surtax is down
lrom a possible 63 to a maximum of 32 and have given the
"vote" reason to think that a considerate government has lifted
a burden, l he "vote" may Iook at its own $20 reduction and
not glare at the reduction in the surtax on the top incomes.
We do not put it past the politically wise congressmen to
have had an eye upon this possible development, squinting at
the top and then at the bottom. But what of the taxpayers who
c arn more than $4000 and less than $66,000? Nothing of them.
They go on as before, partly because of the three classifications,
they are the least important politically. They do not kick into
campaign funds heavily and they do not kick over tickets. They
vote usually by formula. Most of them, we imagine, are repub
licans and they are expected to go on being republicans and the
democrats to go on being democrats.
They are not organized except politically, and politically
they are supposed to be set in their ways and habits of thought.
Occasionally they do something, such as turning progressive, but
that is only once in a whale's age. Sometimes they are called
the bone and sinew of the nation, but sometimes we think the
bone is chiefly in the head. Anyway, they will stand for it am
they will have to stand for it if the present scheme of revision is
considered sound and foolproof by the revisionists .
The man with an income of over $70,000 is as able to stand
the prevailing high taxation as the man with an income between
$4000 and $66,000. More able ; but he gets relief and the other
does not. Proportionately the latter is stung. He remains the
hub.stance of the nation and the bone.
The East Oregonian hears that during the last Round-Up
people went without rooms despite the fact the accommodation
headquarters had plenty of rooms available. The people in
question evidently did not know of the accommodation head
quarters and the work it does. Why not have big street signs
calling attention to the headquarters and smaller signs in many
l'laces telling people to seek rooms through the headquarters.
It would be especially appropriate to have such signa freely dis-f-Nyed
at hotels because the average stranger will seek accom
modations at the hotels. People thould not be allowed to go
t.!nared for when there are rooms available and in handling
the problem it must be borne in mind a stranger is a stranger,

Have you a card-board box in the
house? If you have two, all the better,
a half-dozen, better still, for whether
you are a mother with one child or a
half-dozen, ranging from six months
to twelve years old, you will never find
yourself at a loss when the old
pall, or the day is rainy.
Of course the box must have quali
fications: and a few accessories are
necessary, according to the ages
your children. The accessories, are so I
simple that any household may have!
them or the children may make tbem.
As early as six to twelve months,
baby tires of his rattle. Give him the
lid of a clean white box, or make two
slits and tie his rattle to it. It will
never cease to amuse him anew. Do
not forget the qualifications, clean and
white. Then if he puts it in his mouth
It will.do him no harm.
In his second year the child will en
Joy a whole box or several boxes,
which he can take apart. Also give
him a large lid, into which his toys
may be piled and turned out again.
The child oi two or three years be
gins to want accessories. A string at
tached to a box makes It into-n iina
wagon or coach. No Tvheels are neces
sary. Pulling and carrying are the
first activities suggesting themselves
to a child and a little girl likes a few
covers with the boxes, such as clean
cloths to make a bed for dolly.
With the new experiences of the
fourth and fifth years which are going
to be reproduced continually, the box
gains additional value. A half-dozen
boxes joined with strings make a
train, a few spools provide wheels and
a smokestack. A large box and a few
small ones make a tea table and
chairs. The painted engine and the
real tea table may have lost their
charm. The box toy 1s your alterna

just, awaken new possibilities. Boxes
of less stiff and heavy cardboard are
more adaptable to the scissors. Wa
gons with wheels that turn, or tables
and chairs with legs are a result.
One big box in which to put the
furniture serves as the doll house. The
suggestions that follow the idea of a
"house for dolly" will be amply forth
coming from the children themselves.
