NBW YORK, Sept. 28. (U. P.)
John Wanamaker charged today that
excessive government taxation Is
largely responsible for the continued
high cost of living. He told the Unit
ed press retailers were unable to make
I further reductions or commonly
el prices until the taxation burden is
lightened. Manufacturers and whoie
salers must set the pace for the re
tailers. "The government holds down
business by taxes on excessive sales
and taxes on Income." said the veter
an merchant. 'These things make
dull time for business because the
public was was waiting until the gov
ernment took off these excessive war
time charges." .

A decision to carry on the work of
the Eastern Oregon Auto Club during
the winter months when traffic is al
ways of slighter volume was rracntu
last night at A membership meeting or
the organisation. The dec slon was
made after the report or me execu
tive secretory. B. I Crockatt, had
been made showing tjie need of work
In preparation for the season of 1S22.
In order to organise the business
efforts of the club Is an effective
manner a. budget committee consist
ing, of Hoy W. Rttner, iEd Murphy and
O. F. Steel was named. This commit
tee will worki with president Dav'd
H. Kelson, the secretary and L. I
Rogers, chairman of the committee on
finance In determining the amount of
money which will be distributed to va
rious branches of the activities.
The present membership of the club
is 162. the report of tne secretary
showed, an Increase of 123 since April
It Is expected that this membersmp
will be doubled In 1922. .
That more than one-half of .the
population of the country "Is now on
wheels," was the statement of Secre
tary Crockatt in his report. An Indi
cation of the Importance of auto traf
fic was given when he declared tnst
there were 10 visitors 10 una i
niirwi.iln who came by motor to one
that came by rail. Two years ago,
there were more who came by railroad
than by autos. Crockatt said.
He also called attention to stnt'stlcs
on money spent by tourists. In Cali
fornia last year, estimates have it that
tourists left 390,000,000, and during
the same period In Oregon, only 11.
OOO.OflO was secured by the state from
visitors motoring through. The dif
ference Ib largely accounted for by the
superiority ,of tho California highways,
according to the speaker.
Members of the cIuti who operate
service stations declared that the
benefits derived by the organization
this year have made It a necessity that
must be maintained on an even more
effective scale as auto traffic increases.

Experts of the interstate commerce
commission, proposing a consolidation
of railroads Into 19 competitive sys

general rehabilitation would result as
well as huge savings ;n operating ex
penses. The commission believes bank
ruptcy which many of the small roadi
face might be averted by consolida

ance of such consolidation to '.h na
tion, made the provision in the Esch
Cummlns law for such an action,
leaving It to the discretion of r'.ie In

commission experts hold only by such
consolidation can railroads hit the pre
