CUT CHRISTMAS TREE
WISELY TO SAVE FORESTS
A particularly appropriate oppor
tunity to display the Christmas spirit.
, according to officials of the forest
service of the United States depart
ment of agriculture, is the manner in
which persons getting Christmas trees
direct from the forests cut the ever
greens for their holiday celebration.
Each year thousands of dwellers In
towns and cities near the national for
ests or privately owned forests turn
to these tracts for trees which are
to be the central features In yuletlde
decorations. Where the trees are cut

the forest service no barm is done, but
the tendency of many la to slash into

SPECIAL TAXES TAX
Candy and soft drink manufactur
ers will need 100.000 tons more sugar
this year than last, according to
President Zahriskle. of the Equaliza-
Consumption of sugar for these
purposes this year is estimated at
nearly 600.000 tons, more than one-
seventh of our total domestic con
sumption of sugar.
In the face of this candy is classed
as a luxury and a 5 per cent excise
tax over and above all other taxes I
loaded onto the industry, which the
consumer must pay. This tax was
adopted In extremity of wur. It
should now be repealed. Special taxes
on one line of Industry or property
and exemption from taxes for others
is poor business in any democratic

A StAtment by Mrs. Martin Clark

friends here contributed towards Mr.
Clark's new tr!al
