Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 30, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKIS ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLIII F1VK CENTS A COPT ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED VVjKJl SKKV1UJS MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY NOVEMBER THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTION ONE NO 47 STEWART HAD IDEA Federal Incorporation of Big Business Proposed By CHARLES P STEWART A S H I N GTON CPA Two or three years ago I wrote an ar ticle suggesting that big busi ness was crush ing relatively small private business initia tive and pro posing a reme dy based on my own admitted ly small knowl edge of the sit uation My notion as expressed was that a business which is not too large to b handled by an in dividual or a partnership ought to have a free hand within reason able limits but that a business so huge RS to necessitate incorpora tion was so huge as to require governmentalization for the pub lic safety I all sections clearly show thut To my surprise I received about j people are buying this Christmas F R ARRIVES AT BUENOS AIRES More Expensive Christmas Gifts Being Sold BUYING BIGGEST IN SEVEN YEARS ROPER ASSERTS Bonuses and Dividends of Business Stimulating to Trade WASHINGTON Roper said Monday that reports to the commerce department irom half a bushel basketful of letters not from radicals but from bank ers and accounting agencies com mending my idea in principle To be sure the writers said I was mis taken in advocating government alization but they agreed with remarkable unanimity that lim ited liability companies engaged in interstate activities ought to be federally incorporated Federal Incorporation more expensive types of gifts than for any season since At the same time Roper made the first comment from an admin istration source on recent heavy dividend declarations He said the unprecedented distribution of j corporation funds through bonuses and extra dividends is a most stimulating factor in the Christ I mas buying surge i Progress on Christj j mas business the secretary said i Recently under the new deal a support previous predictions that movement has been launched in department store sales this season favor of a federal law I am not so conceited as to as sume that I inspired this move menl There began to be an agitation in favor of a federal incorporation law at least as far back as the first President Roosevelts administra tion It never got anywhere I suppose the big corporations chlor oformed it However in the much earlier days of the republic the question arose Had the federal government the right to charter national banks Thomas Jefferson certainly a democrat said not His argument was that the constitution did not authorize it Alexander Hamilton a tory argued contrariwise His reasoning was that maybe the con stitution did not authorize national banking but it did not prohibit it either Hamilton Wins Out Hamiltons philosophy won out in the long run National banking and the fed eral chartering of interstate cor porations are on a par many competent and constitutional authorities say What is the present system incorporation i will be at least 15 per cent great i er than in 1935 and will closely approach the volume attained in the 1929 People More Prosperous Our reports give evidence of the fact that people throughout the country are in a much more prosperous condition now than has been the case for the last seven he continued The general uptrend of busi ness more widespread employ ment and better prices obtained by farmers have been major fac tors in stimulating this holiday trade to the highest levels in sev eral Analyzing reports from trade centers a commerce department summary said that there have been very definite indications in the last few weeks that New Yorkers are no longer penny pinching and that rnoney in in creasing amounts is being spent on goods other than Trade Gain Seen The unexpected money pump ed out in extra dividends in New

1935 by 12 per cent engage in interstate business has its choice of the laws of 48 dif ferent states to be incorporated under Some are very strict with their regulations some are very lenient toward the corporations Most of them elect to incorpo rate in Delaware where they are treated with much consideration From that vantage point they op erate under the kindly Delaware only in Delaware but in all of the other 47 states where laws are not so considerate of them A federal law would equalize i them i x Safe and Sound Delaware corporation operat ing exclusively within Delawares limits would be safe and sound so long as it respected Delawares easy regulations But the instant it extended its trade beyond Dela wares boundaries it would jeop ardize its federal license And very few Delaware corpor ations care to have their activities conOned to Delaware exclusively It may seewf as if big corpora tions should fight to the last ditch such a readjustment Curiously enough they do not altogether care to do so Federal might permit them to effect price bargains and wage agreements that now are prohibited by interstate commerce rulings And then they would more money maKe but increases
