Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 27, 1937, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME FIVE CENTS A COPY PRESS AND UNITED LEASED WmES Opposed to Tax Boosts Congress Does Not Like Budget Balancing Idea senators and By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON CPA The recent sugges tion by Chair man Marrine S Eccles of the federal reservi systems boarc o f governors that now is the time for Uncle Sam to balance his budget by a sizable increase in taxation rates has been received with anything but chorus of joy ful a c cl a i m from the ranks representatives who will have to bear responsibil ity for the increase if one is voted It isall very well for Chairman Eccles who is not much in poli tics to make such a recommenda tion Probably not many average folk even noticed thathe made it or have a very clear idea who Eccles is When a legislator however casts his ballot for a tax increase few among his constituents are likelyto fail to observe the cor responding increase in the size of his bill from the collector of tithes and said legislator is well aware thathe speedily will be over whelmingly called on to explain why he voted that way if he was oneof those who did He knows too that a record as a taxbooster will befar fromihelpful to him on next election day An Exception Seen Senator Robert M La Follette of Wisconsin is almost alone among outstanding lawmakers wlio emphatically favors higher levies to enable the federal gov ernment to meet its expenses as it goes along Virtually all the remainder urge that Uncle Samuel instead of ask ingtor niore money should

present day Labor they say is asserting it self at a juncture which is ex ceedingly inconvenient for big business They appeal to the workersleadership to hold off for a raise Cain just as prosperity is doing its best to re assert itself Just so This is a mightily in convenient time for big business That is why labor has picked this particular time When would it strike out for itself except thus psychologically it will be less an noying to big now at the best moment for labor Any strategist ought to be able at one guess to answer these questions In Constant Demand The congressional library re
