NO INCREASED TAX WILL BE WELCOME
Thwarted in the effort to increase the income tax, hesi­
tant to restore the strongly opposed state property tax,
the state administration is turning in desperation to the
sales tax in order to balance the budget. The sales tax,
however, is no more popular than the rest, because the
manufacturer, the middleman and the merchant pass it on
to the consumer whose buying power has already been
seriously hampered by low wages or no wages at all. The
customer must either pay the increased price as cheerfully
as his circumstances permit or do without the desired ar­
ticles, and because he so often does without, the slowing
up of trade reacts upon all who had a hand in the making
or the selling of the merchandise.
The farmer, too, gets a hard rap for, as State Grange
Master Gill has pointed out, he buys in a market made
more expensive by the tax and sells in a market depressed
by it. The sales tax will have some bitter enemies.
The net is that no increase in taxation, however pain­
less the m<. hod is reputed to be, will be welcome. What
the public will greatly prefer from the approaching special
and regular sessions of the legislature will be a still further
pruning in administrative expense—in elimination of or­
namental jobs like that of the state budget director, anti
severe paring down of fancy salaries such as that of the
state purchasing agent. Some possible economies are ob-
vious, and others would require careful and expert investi­
gation, but wherever or whatever they are, provided they
involve no loss in efficiency, they should be carried into
effect.

It is significant that the instructors and heads of de­
partments in Oregon’s higher educational system, getting
probably from $1,200 to $2,400 a year, accepted their pay
cuts willingly, realizing the conditions that necessitate a
reduction in public expenses. Coach Schissler, however,
drawing $8,000, balked.
Mr. Schissler was presumably thinking merely about
his rights in seeing that the contract which he holds is
carried out to the letter, but regardless of excuses that
may be made for him the incident appears as one of many

Wishing You a
Very Merry Christmas
Clara L. Cleveland, deceased.
It’s a wish centuries old, a wish that was trite, in a
sense, when the yuletide ox roasted in a huge fireplace and
the smoke, for lack of chimney, curled around the rafters
in search of an outlet through the roof; a wish that has
been repeated ever and anon in war time and peace time,
in depression and prosperity; and yet a wish that is ever
fresh and ever redolent of hope and cheer — Merry
Christmas!
