By Arthur Urig Dane copyright 192a by Star company Congress should not neglect at this session question of decent pay for Federal judges. All of judges in National service Are underpaid. For justices on supremo Bench and All through Federal judicial service shamefully inadequate pay is a disgrace to richest nation in world. It is impossible of course for judges to make any Campaign on their own behalf. But country that depends upon them for Justice and Protection should pay them at rust enough to live decently. Those of British Paymen be made Over a period or sixty two years with interest at slightly More than three per cent. The opposition to debt settlements was negligible. The opposing votes were cast by a scattering of Southern democrats and insurgent. Republicans of Northwest. It was pointed out that every settlement made costs american taxpayer millions of dollars annually representing difference Between interest paid by debtors and interest paid by government to holders of Liberty Bonds that furnished Money.

Redmayne wrote a letter to newspapers about debt question and incidentally referring to american people said Quot they think they won War whereas exact opposite is sir Arthur did a most unusual thing. He stands out among his countrymen for he Rose to defense of United states and part it played in world War. Of per cent on first $4,000 3 per cent on income Between $4,000 and $8,000 and 6 per cent on incomes above $8,000. On sur taxes rates begin at 6 per cent at $20,000 and run to a maximum surtax or 20 per cent on incomes Over $100,000. On admission taxes Senate committee increased exemption from fifty cent tickets to seventy five cent tickets which would cause a loss of $9,000,000 annually in revenues.
