Deceivers Are the most dangerous Myers of society. They trifle with e Best affections of our nature and Olate the most sacred Rabbe. Kack has come at last to War torn Spain. But what ice peace casualties total e than a million souls Home ones run into hundreds of Osands costs amount to More an $40,,,. Robert Southey in his poem in Battle of Blenheim a fought Home to Many the futile of War. A Veteran of the great title was telling Little Peterkin bout it a but what Good came of at last a quoth Little Peterkin. Why that i cannot Tell a said a but a twas a famous the famous Victory in Spain rings to the fore Generalissimo Ranco. Just now he is ruler Cable everything but withal an known Quantity. If he apes Hitler and Mussolini untold mis lie ahead for the people of in. If he chooses to become a of benevolent despot he May Able to bring about a semblance Law and order among the asses greatly divergent in inking and ways of life. If the Diar Chy is restored and Amtal becomes the order of the Day in the period before the Span to american War it will Mark e death of a Peoples Hopes for n Opportunity to live peacefully and cheerfully. The fascist vultures outside pain will undoubtedly make train demands for help rendered and swoop Down for Choice Lakings. So at Tho Best the out k for the sorely tried dons not look Good. Who could be guilty of extreme cruelty if he is such a Man How in the world could miss Lombard take the risk of marrying him there is no need for argument Here. The phrase a extreme cruelty has become a convenient one for Hollywood ites who want to change life partners. Vex not an artists mind. Thou canst not fathom it. Has his Back it Premier Daladier who was looked upon alter the Munich fiasco As being somewhat spineless has demonstrated to the people of France that he really has a Back Bone. Last night in a speech he offered to negotiate Frances difficulties with Italy but put it squarely up to Rome to make the next move by clarifying her demands. Furthermore he bluntly warned that a we will not cede a foot of our land nor one of our rights. We Are just wondering what Mussolini will be Able to make of that speech. Rather than deliver an ultimatum regardless of consequences he will probably ask for a conference in the Hope that he can get certain concessions and bide his time until he can ask for More. Negotiations would tie valuable to both France and England for the time element involved would mean a strengthening of armaments. Mussolini is too Wise to Rush foolishly into a War that would cramp his Imperial notions. Gary the Ukraine Western Europe and even England. So the conquering hero is to get most of Europe in instalments. But Wasny to there a King who marched up Hill and then Back Down again and maybe Bobbie Burns was right when he wrote a the Best Laid schemes of mice and men gang aft a Gley and leave us nought but grief and pain for promised thursday March .40, 1030 now watch. Closely this time irn Egie author of a How to win friends and influence people ii Money Money the appropriations committee in Congress feels that in approving the $100,000,000 appropriation for spa it was following a a More Liberal policy than a searching inquiry probably would it claims that spa with the additional amount at its disposal can maintain its Rolls at the level desired by president Roosevelt and have Money to spare. On the other hand word comes from the White House that the $150,000,000 was needed but that if a lesser sum was appropriated the spa would Hae to stretch it out and do the Best it could. This looks like a Compromise. Johnny q. Citizen of course wonders Why it could not have been brought about sooner. The president requested Congress a got up on its Dew claws and delayed for weeks on weeks thus putting a Damper upon those trying to eke out a living and affecting business. The investigation of spa will probably extend through several months. It will disclose that a great Deal of Money has been spent. Of Money Money Joes the unfinished window again local hospitals and a Hildrene a Home Are the Reci cents of allotments from the Uke endowment fund.

Gable the kind of a Man Hoey for president the House in the North Carolina general Assembly last night very graciously adopted resolutions recommending that the democratic National convention nominate governor Hoey for the presidency. It was expected that the Senate would act upon the resolutions favourably today. Far by it from us to speak adversely concerning the gesture. We Call it gesture by the Way advisedly. Governor Hoey a career As the states chief has certainly shown that he has executive ability that would amply serve were he elevated to the presidency. But when the Good Fellows get together in a democratic National convention they think in terms of those sections that Are never considered hence the South has no Chance to get a presidential candidate. Of Well occasionally we do get a candidate for vice president a after much political sweating.

So what did happen a smile in return. The second Porter had been praised. He Felt Good. He had been Given a Good reputation to live up to. You May be certain that he would never put two bolsters in a Pullman bed again. Struck by this adroit and unusual method of criticising a Man. I asked de Vaun where he Learned this. I he replied. Quot i Learned it from w. K. Bixby. I used to lie his Valet. Or. Bixby was an awful smart Many one of the biggest business men in St. Louis. A director in several Banks and had something to do with the american car and foundry company. I often watched the Way he handled people. He never raised his voice never got excited. If you made a mistake he never told you about it before other people. If he saw you were confused. He would wait until the next Day before saying anything. He loved to Praise people and when anybody did anything wrong he told him about it in such a kind Way that he made him want to do better next time. I Learned More from being or. Bixby Valet than i did by going to High school four years and attending Kansas University two years. He went on to say that no Man in St. Louis had better service in his Home than or. Bixby did that All of his employees w Ould have gone through hell fire for him. If you have people working for you.

As the automobile stopped the rear Axle and the wheels separated letting the Ford rest on the pavement. Traffic was Bruce Cotton in Washington by Bruce Catton Washington March 30. A the next bitter and sensational scrap m Washington will be the fight Over the pending War profits tax measure. The Bill is about As drastic a measure As any taxation Bill Ever offered in Congress. It would confiscate corporation profits in in excess of 6 per and w Ould tax individual incomes sop heavily that very be exceeding their earnings. Naturally a Bill like that is going to stir up tremendous opposition. But the thing to remember about it is that the proposal is a direct and legitimate descendant of the. Famous Senate munitions investigation of a few years ago. And All of the highly explosive ammunition collected during that investigation is waiting to be fired at the Heads of the Bill a opponents. Bill is old timer the Bill was not hastily drawn. Ai has been charged. It was drafted by the munitions investigators thief years ago and they took six months department assistance to do the Job. I on the committee then wer4 senators Bone. Clark of Missouri. George Nye Pope Vandenberg and Barbour All except Pope Are still in the Senate. And All Are in favor of the Bill. Objections to the Bill so far Art chiefly two. First the individual income tax rates it provides for application in time of War Are so Steep that in states which Levy intern taxes of their own. A Rich Man would be taxed More than the total of hit income. In new York for instance a Man with an income of $500,000 a year would be liable for state and Federal income taxes totalling $526,000. A million Dollar income would be liable to taxes totalling $1,061,000. The other objection is that these crushing taxes plus the confiscatory corporation taxes would make it impossible to fight any War under any circumstances whatever since they would simply Stop the processes of Industry and Commerce. Affirmative arguments but the Bill a sponsors Are ready with answers. First of All they say. It will be simple to work out in the Senate finance committee an adjustment which will keep state and Federal rates together from taking Mort than a Many a total income. Second they remark that if the Hill operates so As to keep the from getting into lactic Telephone to Horn by tooting it ment. Demonstrate the into the instr when Bell and his assistant Watson first perfected the Telephone their greeting Over the wire was commercial use of the phone brought in Quot hello a and the British a Are you there a when Belles untutored assistant Thomas Watson was Able to retire on his earnings from the Telephone he started a full College course at the age of to collected a Library travelled around the world and ultimately became a highly cultured and erudite Man. In Tirana the capital of Albania there Are no Telephone numbers As Calls to any of its 300 subscribers Are made by name. Country any wars that in just swell. That a what it is meant to do. Beyond that though there is the argument that the country a machinery not Only could function in wartime under this taxation Law. But that through the Law the country would pay its War costs As it w ent along. One estimate is that if this measure had been in existence in 1917, America would have come out of the world War without any added debt. Underlying All of these argument there is the vast wealth of material about wartime profits. That material collected during the munition investigation. Shocked the Cour cry when the investigation we As on the Bill a sensors believe it will do so again and will rally Public support to Page a the Bill. World War difficulties senator Nye flips open the published record of the munitions investigation and Points to a Section recounting the governments troubles during the last War. The Copper Industry refused to produce the Price proposed by the government. The steel Industry refused to fill wartime orders until prices had been stabilized at Levels satisfactory to the Industry. The do font company refused to build a great powder Plant Whit to it alone was qualified to build until it was assured of what it considered a sufficient profit. And there in the record is a letter from Pierre Dupont Quot we cannot assent to allowing our own patriotism to interfere with our duties As fundamentally the Bill rests on the proposition that in War time someone besides the Man who goes into the army should be called on for vast sacrifices. That proposition has potentially. A tremendous Public Appeal. You can be sure that it will be presented dramatically and forcefully when this Bill comes up for debate. Whether the Biti can pass is another question. Already there Are signs of wavering among some of the 50 senators who sponsored it. There will be More in the near future. But a gorgeous fight is in Prospect anyway. Blackfeet indians will serve As guides in Glacier Park this summer.
