DALE ACQUITTED BY ALGONA JURY By CHARLES P STEWART Central Press Staff Writer ASHINGTON June Senator Huey P Long proposes a share our wealth program it is supposed to be a perfectly wild eyed idea But when Pres ident Roosevelt appears to be planning a re distribution o f wealth cam paign his sugges tion is received with a consider able degree of national compo sure The main difference seems to be that the president uses more refined language than the senator The trouble with wealth as Senator lames Couzens of Michigan remarked in the course of an interview I recently had witn him is that it cant be done Money can be divided up into stacks of equal size the senatoi agreed but wealth in the form of machinery goodwill and going business he pointed out is any hurry up method such as Senator Long appears to favor NRA First Plan The Rooseveltian scheme howev er as discribed by administration ists on capitol hill contemplates a gradual process NRAs purpose it is explained was to accomplish it by maintain ingwages so high and prices so moderate that profits could not gravitate excessively into a few hands But NRA has been found uncon stitutional Accordingly the executive man sions notion is to let profits accu mulate in the hands of individual profiteers except for high income taxes as long as they live but to break up their hoards when they die by veryheavy levies on the es tates that they leave behind them Thus the theory not only will redistribution be kept moving but Uncle Sams treasury will get so much out of it that it will be able to reduce other taxation X Where Will Money Hi1 The problem is Supposing such a system is adopt ed will Uncle Sam get as much out of it is he anticipates That is to When a very rich man dies will not his estate generally find itself at a loss for ready cash to meet the crovernments requirements And if so will it not largely evaporate in the course of hurriedlyenforced li not much for anybody Or else will not the gov ernment have to take ever the de cedents properties and run them in this fashion absorb ing all the business in the country To a socialist this would be a de sirable trend not to individualists Special Privilege In short REdistribution says Congressman George Huddleston of Alabama ranking democratic mem ber of the house of representatives commerce committee never can be satisfactory Few cures cure completely vention is better Wealth once over accumulated is impossible to redivide fairly Its overaccumulation is the thing to forestall Special privilege is our basi evil Its repeal is what our case de mauds
