SHALL WE TAX ABILITY?
IF ONE were to ask what is the
reason for the phenomenal growth
of the United States to the place it
now occupies as the leading nation
of the world, one would probably
receive the answer, in most in
stances, that it is the opportunities
offered in this country for the ap
plication of individual initiative,
and the lack of limitation on the
heights to which the individual
may rise through such application.
Magazines and newspapers are full
of stories of the poor farm boy who
worked his way to the head of
something, even to being president
of his country. Such a right of un
restricted advancement is consid
ered inherent in every American
boy and girl. It is the great Ameri
can privilege that in turn has made
Everyone in this country expects,
and justly so, that the government
will give him equal opportunity
with his fellow. The farm board
was created because of the clamor
of agricultural interests that they
be given equal opportunity with
other industry. The principle is in
accord with our democratic system
Every American boy and girl is
born with a native ability, the great
est wealth possible for either to
possess, which our government has
declared shall not be taken away
This is brought strongly to mind
when one hears exponents of the in
come tax declare the principle to be
the only sound basis of taxation. Is
One of the first lessons taught in
principles of economics is that mon
ey does not in itself constitute econ
omic wealth. It is pointed out clear
ly that money is but a medium of
exchange, the nature of which may
change entirely in a short period of
time. In some lesser advanced coun
tries even today beads are used as
money, and who may tell but what
uncovering of extra large deposits
of gold might upset our entire mon
etary system. If two-thirds of the
people of the United States were to
vote to do away with money entire
ly, which might be possible under
our system of government, who
would the wealthy people be?
Naturally, it would be those who
are in possession of the real econ
omic wealth of the country, the pro
ducts of farm, mine, mill and fac
tory. Basically, however, all trade
depends on the products of the land
itself, and so primarily the land, in
cluding the water, is the sole source
of economic wealth.
The land is there, offering the
same possibilities of production to
any who may wish to cultivate it
However, it will produce, other
things being equal, in proportion to
the amount of intelligent work
used in cultivating It If and when
a fair basis of assessment is arrived
at, so that the value of the land.
and stores of the products from It
are justly determined, so that each
pays in proportion to the amount of
economic wealth he commands, then
will the long-headedness of the fel
lows who devised our present sys
tem of taxation be borne out
The income tax is not only In ef
fect a tax on money, which in it
self is economically unsound, but in
turn it is a tax on human ability
and thus infringes on the individ
ual's inherent right aforementioned.
Here, let it be understood, Is meant
a true income tax If the govern
ment take all excess profits, and
otherwise curtail graft the country
would prosper without affecting the
inherent right of anybody. But take,
for instance, two farmers. One has
little initiative, is lazy, hence pro
duces little. Another is industrious,
intelligent, makes the same amount
of soil produce affluently. The first
has a small income. The latter has
quite a sizeable income. Shall the
government take from the latter
and not from the former? If so, is
not the latter's ability being taxed?
Is there any foundation for saying
the income tax is right in principle?
And so long as Oregon's neighbor
ing states do not adopt a like sys
tem of taxation is it reasonable to
believe that an income tax will in
any way aid in attracting out-of-state
capital, which all admit is
necessary if the state is to progress?

The term Itself strikes terror to
both patient and physician; the lat

tact with the disease, that he it "up
against it" for a chronic siege.
Literally, any inflammation of a
joint is "arthritis." Acute inflam
matory rheumatism should not be
difficult to manage, thoagh it is
typical arthritis. In this letter, I
refer to that chronic form, that too
often sends its victims to the rolling
chair for years, if not for life.
We do not know its cause after
years of study of its symptomatol
ogy. Some think is due to an ob
scure internal infection; others be
lieve it to be a disease of the blood,
not yet understood. So far as my
experience at first hand is concern
ed, I feel sure it will some day be
found to be of nervous origin but
that remains to be seen.
The question of relief is one of
supreme importance. Of course,
every unit of the body must be kept

I have seen patients almost killed

I want to say here, that the ar
thritic patient should, if available,
submit the joints to exposure under
the X-ray. Not too long sittings,
nor too frequently repeated for an
X-ray burn would set up a serious
complication. A patient of mine at

of lamb 100 days from now."
Lindgren reported that in some
sections these lambs have been
shorn and put up and fed on grain
with 20 per cent of molasses added.
This ration with hay is far more ex
pensilve than feeding grain on pas
ture. Some molasses is desirable,
however, in getting farm lambs ac
customed to eating grain.
Wheat, corn or barley fed whole
are equally suitable for lamb feed
ing. A light ration of quarter pound
a day is best to start with, getting
them on full feed in two to three
weeks. Shearing is advisable, as it
enables the lambs to put on better
gains, commercial feeders find.

Thin Stock on Valley Farms Need
Grain With Pasture, Reports
A considerable number of thin
lambs on farms of the Willamette
valley are causing growers some
concern in view of the market con
ditions. The market cannot han
dle them at a satisfactory price as
there is little feeder outlet for that
Feeding these lambs a pound of
grain a day along witn pasture is
suggested as a profitable method
of putting them into condition by
H. A. Lindgren, livestock fleldman
of the state college extension service.
"A thin lamb weighing around 50
pounds is netting the grower only
about 3 to 3 cents at the rancn
says Lindgren. "If they are fed
grain on pasture they can be made
to weigh 80 pounds in about 100
davs at a feed cost of about 7 cents
a pound or $2.10 per lamb. On that
basis the finished lamb will cost
about S3.85 and must sell on the
farm when fat for 5 cents a pound
The grower must use his own judg
ment relative to prospective price

I Samuel 18:1-4; 20:14-17, 32-34, 41, 42;
II Samuel 1:25-27.
Rev. Samuel D. Price, D. D.
Great stories are recorded in the
Bible and the record of the friend
ship that existed between David
and Jonathan is in that class. The
Indicated Scripture references give
only some of the high points. For
the very interesting details read
from chapter 18 through the first
chapter of II Samuel.
Young people, with their rich
idealism, will particularly enjoy
this acquaintance with two men
who were rivals for the throne In
Israel. Those who delight In hero
worship, and that is a feature with
youth, will find it hard to decide,
which was the greater David or
Jonathan. The narrative begins
when David was brought to Saul
after the young man had slain the
giant, Goliath of Gath, in single
combat. Jonathan took in every
word and sees far more in the vic
tor than just one who was able to
sling a stone straight to the mark
He discerns the likeable qualities
which are characteristics to admire.
Right then hearts went out to each
other. It is interesting to note how,
just as young people trade clothes
today, Jonathan supplied garments
for David even to a Bword. David
left home that morning merely to
carry a lunch basket to his brothers
in the camp but ended the day as
a member of the court of King Saul,

Even a throne was of less conse
quence to Jonathan than to lose his
beloved friend David. When Saul
was ready to kill his own son Jon
athan as well as David, in the midst
of his moods of melancholy, the
bond of affection held sublimely
firm. Life is personally risked to let
David know that there is no possi
bility of effecting any reconciliation
with the King. A lad wltn a quiv-
ver of arrows unwittingly becomes
the bearer of that message. After
the boy is dismissed David and Jon
athan meet for the last time, as
David comes forth from his place
of hiding. Then there is one of the
dearest expressions of friendship
that can be found in literature
They renew their pledges of fealty.
Thev will separate, perhaps forever,
but this fact will not change tneir
reeard for each other in any re
spect. David extends the covenant
to include the offspring or Jona
than. It is delightful to note how
he keeps his word in the case of
Jonathan's son, Mephibosheth who
is lame In his feet. In II Samuel
9:1-10 is told how the son of the
beloved friend "eat bread always at
When word of the death of Jon
athan in battle with the Philistines
is brought to David the tenderest
expressions are recorded in tne

poems, such as "In Memorlam" by
Tennyson in recognition of his
friend Arthur Henry Hallam.
The cultivation of dee), abiding
personal friendships is a life work
for all of us. Some of our richest
blessings Inhere In just such friend
ships. Friends understand us and
help us by thelrconstructlve criti
cism as well as by their kindly com
ments. A friend is eager to aid to
the extent of his ability. The Best
Friend of all to cultivate Is Jesus,
so human, understanding, eager and
able to help; a faithful companion
and one who never gives up. Others
may fail us and especially at a crit
ical time of need. He abides faith
ful and has unlimited power of as
sistance. Friendship with Jesus,
even as with others, is a process of
development and the reward Is
worth far more than all the expen

ceived a number of letters thank
