Last week we started to give our
recom m endations on the measures
to be voted upon next Tuesday, but
had to cut out part of them on ac
count of space. So we shall contin

F o u rth comes the Non-compulsory
Military T raining bill. We can see
no good sense in this bill. We went
th ro u g h that military training in
o u r own college days many yea-
ago and so far as we can see it did
us more good than harm. Vote No.
F ifth comes the real Tax Limits
tion bill. It is our belief this act w'.l
do more harm than good. We fe»l
It will cut too deep into government
efficiency and will injure property

T he lim iting of the millage rate
m ight not do so much harm alone
but with it comes the requiremen
fixing the assessed valuation at
5 0 % . T ogether th a t makes too decj
a cut in government income and wll
be a handicap on all governmetv
agencies. We advise a vote of No on
Sixth is the state

We are unalterably opposed to tin

Seventh is a bill closely tied i>
with th e Power Bill and for th<
same reason we say No.

Finally comes the State Bank Bill
We saw and heard enough of such
folly in the North Dakota fiasco an
believe Oregon can well stay out o
the banking business. Vote No.
And th a t makes it unanimous
Ju st vote no on all the measures an«
you will be doing fine. Now on th«
candidates— vote for Landon au<

do as you darned please. (You wil

Of course we have our preferences
and so have you. So far as we know,

We would like to say Just a wor !
about the whispering
which has been going on about o:
old friend A. C. Walker. Most of tl
stu ff told is untrue, in our opinioi
And we do not believe this man h.

Mr. Hyde existence. This county h
never had a more faltfhul servai
th a n Mr. Walker. For sixteen Ion
years the auditors have been unab
to find the tr e a s u r e r ’s books off ba
ance even in the sum of one penny
And t h a t ’s a record unbeatable. A

The Social Security Board al
ready faced a trem endous task iu
f nger-printing or assigning num-
| hers to the 26,000,000 employes by
[Ja n u a ry 1. Now it is up to its neck
in mail— questions and
i about the new taxes.
T he taxes start, for instance, at 1
per cent and gradually increase.
Thus an employe making only $20 a
week will, beginning Ja n u ary 1
have 20 cents deducted from his pay
each week, for his employer Is forc-
ed to co lect the tax for the govern
ment. Eventually, that deduction
fro mthe $20 employe's pay will
reach 60 cents.
will be paying an equivalent amount.
This tax on th e employer will be r e
flected in an Increased cost of living,
for the employer has no choice but
to Include in his sales price, the ta x
es he pays.
There is no Iron-clad promise that
these taxes a r e paid anybody will get
pensions or unemployment in su r
ance. In the first place, the Consti
tution forbids the collection of such
taxes for specific purposes. The mon
ey must Just be paid into the T re a
sury's general fund, and can be used
for any purpose.
But on top of that, in passing the
law, Congress inserted this sen
tence: “ The right to alter, amend,
or repeal any provision of this act
s hereby reserved to the Congress.”
Congress has been kuown to
change its mind. If it repealed the
,:ct, nobody could expect it to assume
ho Herculean task of refunding t h i
taxes to those who ahd paid them.
