HOMEY PHILOSOPHY FOR 1921
An evening coat and white neck
tie don't of themselves matt a
civilized any more than they male
him a gentleman. A pair of overaui
and a battered hat quite often cover
a man while he is doing something
for civilization far more important
than the average man wearing an
evening coat and a white necktie can
possibly perform In that rig. The
young scientist who handles a plow
in such a manner that the soil will
be just right for a crop of corn
greater than the average, has no
cause to envy gents in fashion plate
We have all been good-roads
o i rs from Maine to California and
hundred of million! of dollars of the
taxpayer's money h&YC been spent to
build what would have been con
lidered pertc i roads five years ago.
Today our hard surfaced roads are
being ion, np bj truck traffic just
about as rapidly as our macadam
roads were torn up by automobile
traffic from seven to ten years ago.
It Is a question of how far (ho
stale is going to go in providing pcr
manenl highways to be destroyed bj
overloaded commercial vehicles Ions
before the bond issues, which but)
the roads, have been paid off.

jerry entered the primaries for U. S.

court record showed an expenditure
of $-00,000. He was tried and found
guilty under the corrupt praclice act.
He appealed to the V. s. supreme
Court and they rendered a decision
ihai the act was void.
A few days ago Newberry made a
defense speech in the Senate. He
said "with God as witness, I am in

Michigan during the primary or gen

be no "bloc". When should a "bloc"
be? When political linen needs

The Oregon Stale Chamber of Com
merce on January 3 passed strong
resolutions in Portland condemning
the practice of issuing tax-exempt
The resolutions point out that our
federal policy of taxation has been
radically changed from an indirect
to a direct tax by a graduated scale
of taxation upon incomes.
As a result of these high income
taxes, increasing volumes of capital
are being invested in non-taxable se
curities of federal, state and minor
Tins diversion or capital from pro
ductive enterprise to exempted se
curities Is an unfair and serious
handicap to business which cannot
compete for money against such
Investment of large incomes in
tax-exempt securities relieves the
holders from taxes they would other
SrjM be obliged to pay, and, there
by, imposeb on those who cannot
benefit by such exemption, au un
fair burden of taxation.
The Oregon State Chamber of
Commerce, in its resolution, conclud
es by recommending that neeessar.v
corrective legislation be provided to
remove this present inequitable bur
den of taxation and to make all in
come, from whatever source, and in
whatever form, tear its Just propor
tion of the cost of government and
remove the discrimination now pre-!
v.iiling between government and
those- of private enterprise.
The demand is becoming insistent
that the iniquity or continuing to is
sue billions of dollars of tax-exempt
bOOtls and securities by investment
in which capital can escape all forms
of taxation, be corrected. Here is a
logical point to begin io reduce tax
burdens by making all pay equally.

Gov Sproul of Pennsylvania has
appointed G. W. Pepper to fill the

Penrose. Mr. Pepper is a graduate

He was the leading hammer thrpwer

him eligible to a senate seat.

tonnage would revolutionize the In

of the day is it expecting too much
that this boat may become a realty?
