Hasty analysis of the department's
suggestiufis brought this statement from
a leading member of the house:
"If these, suggestions were to Ue car

amendment, the American people would
readjust their habits of living on a

tended to bring home to the people tha'.

congress will be deluged with protests.

that the department submitted sugges
tions merely and that congress will re
gard them merely as bases for discus
sion. The bill must raise 8,0Uu,uul),O(,u
and that will require us to go into many
new fields of taxation. But congress as
a whole will be opposed to hitting any
taxpayer harder than e ran near. The
country should reali.o and must realize
that everybody will have to bftir the
The proposal for doubling the liquor,
beer and tobacco taxes met with general
approval as did that for putting a twen
ty per cent tax on the price of new
automobiles. The, suggestion that a horse
power tax lw levied on all automobiles,
already purchased, however, was much
yiiggestinns that the admittance tax
to movies be doubled, while a five per
cent rental tax be eollect.-d from pro
ducers was received with disfavor, as
i tending to raise the price of "the peo
ple s amusement ' too high. Congress be
lieves the people should be allowed
amusement cheaply and freely, so that
their morale may bo kept up.
Iu this connection nlrj strung adverse
comment was made on the suggestion
fur a ten percent tax on all leased tele
graph wires. Many members declared

fullest dissemination of news about the

more harm than good. This tax, thev
pointed out, would deprive many news
papers, particularly to smaller ones
which reach renders in less densely
settled districts, of wire service, upon
which they depend to furnish their read
ers with the news of the day.
The proposed tax of 2o per cent to
100 per cent on the wages of household
servants was eccepted as just.
Suggested taxes on hotel bills and res
taurant checks probably will be acetifi
ed to conserve food.

I One thing is certain: the? National

have whipped it into tiny whirlpools
for years. Certain factions which have,
for some time spread hints of Gover-!
