1 he bait held out is that a state
income tax wouid reduce the proper
ty tax. Ol course no estimate or r.g
ujes are giun to prove this state
ment and the argument disproves it
self tor the very purpose of the
measure is to raise more money by
taxation. It is proposed to tax the
incomes of the rich, in order to get
the vote of the ordinary citizen.
But the lime r'.sh would rind him
self in the net w;;n the big fish once
the bill was passed and the average
taxpayer has had his eyeteeth cut
with the present federal income tax.
He knows that a state tax would
duplicate the federal measure and
give a host of new state employes
jobs at his expense. His books
would have to be gone over by an
other set of officials and the work of
making up his various tax state
ments alone would almost necessi
tate the help of a separate clerk.
Last but not least, this latest tax
boosting scheme in no way guaran
tees a reduction in any other tax. It
would simply be a new tax added to
our already too heavy burden of tax
ation. But the tax maniacs have the priv
ilege of forcing this measure on the
ballot and putting the people to the
expense of voting on a proposition
for which there is no demand and
which the legislature has refused to

She's "At It," Men!
Our wives and sisters and daugh
ters will soon be "AT IT," if they
are not already "at it."
By "at it" we mean, of course,
housecleaning. It is vain to admit that the mascu
line gender loves the neutral gen-
indusrries that do not provide "re
creation'' for the public.
The "day of rest" is too important
to the workingman the working
man above all others for him to
monkey w ith it. Why play into the
hands of the mad money makers who
would just as lief keep him on the
job Sundav as look at him.

Under the management of Prof, j
Heard of the 'high school, the;
grounds recently secured from Mr. ;
Gentry on the lower end of the Mar-:
latt tract, have been put in very ex- :
cellent shape for a baseball diamond. '
This land is so admirably situated
for an athletic field that it should be
secured, if possible, and made the!
permanent property of the city and
county. There should be a plan I
worked out whereby this can be done!
as a joint proposition. The city needs;
the athletic field and the county !
needs a suitable place for the fair
grounds. There has been a move- j
ment started looking to the final pur- j
chase of this or some similar tract, i
but we know of no other piece of i
land so well situated. We should
not urge the outright purchase of
this piece of land, or going to the;
expense necessary to put it in proper j
shape under existing financial condi
tions, because our citizens have all
the load it is possible to carry, never
theless, this does not hinder organ
izing for its ultimate acquirement.
A park and playgrounds for Heppner
is getting to be a necessity and we
shall be glad to see such steps taken
as will secure this tract which can
later be developed into a fair grounds

Workingman and His
The workingman who works him
self up into a state of enthusiasm
and frenzy in favor of the anti-Sunday
delusions of the day, is nothing
less than a simpleton.
Behind nearly every anti-Sunday
movement you will somewhere find
a financier, or a captain of industry
or somebody with no thought in his
head except to make money. Every
time one of them wins, his success
compels some group of men or com
pany of men to work on Sunday.
And the profits he makes puts it
into the heads of a dozen other
greedy capitalists and employers to
Every new "recreation" condemns
a certain number of people to work.
The whole thing hits the worker
first. Does not the workingman see
this when he pays his little fee to
enjov a certain so-called "recrea
tion?" If he does see it, how does
he know that he will not soon be
in the same boat as the fellows who
have to labor for this pleasure? If
people will work for "recreation"
profiteers, why can't other people be
compelled after a while to labor in
der of a house torn and twisted. It
