The proposal designed to accomplish this lofty and Thrifty objective would permit unwed mothers to receive welfare Aid f or Only one child. Any other children these women bore out of wed lock would be ineligible no one can defend promiscuous sexual behaviour but it seer is to us that this purse string method of preserving decorum has several cruel shortcomings. First we cannot imagine. Tibet any woman get herself pregnant solely for the purpose of collecting the few dollars a month the offspring would get from the Statema Drance and poor upbringing Are chiefly to blame not and if the legislators wanted to Cope with the prob Lem they should increase Public health and educational facilities. Second the main sufferer from such a punitive measure would be the children. They did t ask to be born. They certainly have done nothing wrong. Why should they be forced to endure rags and hunger fortunately the courts would throw out this Bill if it passed. A similar Aid to families at a month regardless of the number of children in the declared unconstitutional by the state supreme court recently. So be it in All states. 1dicate. World sichts reserved.

Sales tax versus income tax the Davenport chamber of Commerce has endorsed the idea of increasing the state sales lax to three per cent on the ground permit an end to the state tax on incomes. Y perhaps it would. But we feel that constantly piling up the tax Burden on retail sales cannot help having Adverse effect on business men s profits earnings. The consumer Dollar naturally shrinks with assessed on it. It strikes us that the. Reverse of the chamber s proposal would Best serve its interests and those of the rest of the Community. Let us have no sales tax at All replacing it with a graduated income tax. We would rather have a High in come to pay taxes on than a Low income with no tax on it. I i it is strange How the recent visits to this country by for eign dignitaries have Saud now stopping off in Spain on his Way Home from Washington is reportedly peeved at the Dulles offer of guarantees to Israel which came soon after his talks with president Eisenhower.

Mixtures of Canp sugar syrup and Maple syrup cannot legally be called by the name of a locality such As Vermont which is famous for Maple syrup. Nor Maple syrup from another area be attributed to Vermont. This is mis Labelling even if the pro duct is As Good or better than Vermont syrup.

A person with allergies for example has a right to know whether Sar dines Are packed in Olive Oil to which he is not allergic or Cotton seed Oil to which he is allergic there is nothing unwholesome about cottonseed Oil but the use should know what he is using. The diabetic who must be care Ful about sugar has a right t know whether fruit or other pre pared food has. Been canned in syrup or water.

To use Sabbath As a Day of rest is Good from other than a purely religious aspect. But it is definitely a Basic Law in judo Chirst Ian culture. To reject its essential Quality is to decry god in human Progress and defy his authority in Law and custom. No civilization can endure which in not grounded on moral sanctions.
