Bowery Savings bank of New York,
who was recently elected president of
the American Bankers' association.
STATE INCOME TAX
Salem, Or. In case the attorney
general holds that the state income
tax already obligated but not paid ib
collectible, even though the repeal of
the law In the election may have wip
ed out the operating machinery of the
department, an effort will be made
to collect all the tax due for the year
1924 based on incomes for 1923.
This was the announcement made
here by a member of the state tax
commission under whose direction the
state income tax department has been
conducted. Earl Fisher, state tax com
missioner, said that an Investigation
on tu records indicated that approxi
mately $700,000 of the total income
tax, exceeding $1,250,000, had not been
collected. This amount, he said, in
cluded fourth installment payments
due in December, moneys due from
firms, corporations and individuals
that received time extensions, and
scattering obligations from agencies
affected by the law which failed to
"THiE greater the honor, the heavier
the responsibility; the higher the
office, the more numerous the obliga
tions which it will carry with it to be
met. We want the honor, we crave
the distinction, we covet the office
we are not always eager to meet the
obligations which inevitably go with
, "I'd like to have Bolton's salary," an
envious young fellow said with refer
ence lo the president of a large cor
poration. "I wonder how you would like to
settle his troubles and carry his re
sponsibilities?" I asked.
"Well, that's another story," was
I remember n conversation I had
ypiirs ago with a city executive whose
official record was noted for its Ineffi
ciency. I pointed out to him certain
violations of law that were constantly
occurring almost under his very eyes.
He could sit In his office and look out
of the window upon one of the worst
resorts la town, and yet he made no
attempt to correct the evil.
"Don't you know about these
places?" I asked him straightfor
wardly. "Well, of course, as a private citi
zen, I am pretty well convinced of
their existence," lie admitted, "but of !
dclnlly I do not know anything about
I watched a body of w orkmen yes- j
terday a dozen of them, perhaps
engaged In the repairing of a railroad
crossing. The work was simple and :
it was quite evident even to an Inex
perienced onlooker like myself what
ought to be done, yet they stood
around inactive, doing nothing. The
boss was gone, and there was no one
of the twelve who was willing to take
on himself the responsibility of going
ahead with the work.
Men marry, Join church, accept of
fice, become members of organizations
too often without a thought of what
these obligations mean, of the respon
sibilities which are Involved. Most
members of a committee or of an or
ganization can be depended on to do
very little work. More or less we are
all given to shirking our responsi
bilities. (. 1924, Western Newspaper Union.)

Fifty years ago John U. Lloyd witnessed a double wedding of brothers
and sisters which furnished the basis of his most popular work, "Stringtown on
the Pike." A few days ago Mr. Lloyd hurried to Cincinnati to meet these same
brothers and sisters, now observing their golden anniversary. Above, at the
left, are shown Mr. and Mrs. Albert C. Souther. At the right are Mr. and
Mrs. Frank Souther. They are perhaps the only brothers and sisters in the
United States to observe their golden wedding anniversary at the same time.

Whosoever Will Come After
Me, let him deny himself, and
take up his cross, and follow
Me. Kor whosoever will save

Your Conversation I i' I I 4
The Spanish are very particu
lar. They have a verb "saber,"
meaning to know, while the verb
"conocer" means "knowing ac
quaintances." It is a serious
breach of grammar to confuse
the two. "Savvy" Ig a corrup
tion of "saber" brought in from
; Mexico over the border. When
i you ask someone, "do vou
! savvy?" some think you are
using a bit of slang of Spanish
! Mexican descent.
