How far it shall go, however, and by what methods it shall be accomplished will be left by him to the Treasury and the House ways and means committee, which would frame the bill.

Income Tpxes Show Gain Income tax collections for the first quarter of this calendar year are expected to exceed those for the first three months a year ago when the present law went Into effect by about $100,000,000. Chairman Green already has arranged to have the House ways and means committee assemble In the fall to consider the tax revision.

Tlus is the question put up to a Jury of six men and six women to decide in Sapiro's million-dollar libel suit in federal court hero against Henry Ford, billionaire auto manufacturer, and tho Dearborn Independent. Sapiro has sought monetary balm because of articles that appeared in the Dearborn Independent. William Henry Gallagher, Sapiro's attorney, stated to the court that the-alleged libels "declare that Sapiro not enly was ft member of an or- ganization of Jews, not merely local or American, but international, and an organization that planned to dominate the governments and peoples of all the world; that members of this group had allied themselves with reds, communists and bolshevlsts, working hand In hand." Sapiro's Thoughts cm Ford s Sapiro, a dapper figure with piercing brown eyes that bore into yours as he converses, wants to make it clear that he regards Ford as a very great man. Interviewed at his hotel, Sapiro gays: "I think Mr. Ford is a truly remarkablo man, a genius In hla line. He is doing a great service to his country in an ecouomlo way. "But," the dark eyes snap, "wheu ho seta forth to render what he considers a great service to the farmers by attacking me personally, as some horrible ogre, then I believe he Is, to 6ay tho least, misguided. "Mr. Ford Is undoubtedly credulous and when people tell him these stories about a band of Jews, ox which I am supposed to be an Instrument, about to swoop on the helpless farmers, he believes them. Strange, isn't It? I'm color blind, Just can't tell colors-maybe that's the way with Mr. Ford; he Just can't see clearly where Jews are concerned. Believes Ford Is Sincere. "I believe Mr. Ford is absolutely sincere In his beliefs regarding the Jews. Consequently he's Just twice as dangerous as a faker would tov. "He ha3 done me a tremendous i i harm. Farmers out In Kansas who, read no other publication, not even' Capper's Weekly, subscribe for Use Dearborn Independent. They read these terrible statements and ut ence begin to doubt my Integrity.; It's hard to reestablish their faith in me and my cooperative marketing plan." llieed Gives Ford's Side Senator Reed prefers not to consider tlie racial angle of the case. | "The articles in the Dearborn In- ! j dependent, are not an attack on.1 Sapiro a.s a Jew, but on his business methods in organizing marketing groups," Senator Heed asserts. "Mr. Ford does not own the Dearborn Independent. I am Inclined to believe he never lias .seen these articU-s. He'.i ti.o bu*y a man to'ypend his time in that .sort of thing. We hope to t-stiibllah that tlie staUiiu-nl.s c-entainri in tills nri-'U'/.ine are true and, there-fore, aru not libelous. 0|i[)u'i's 1'ersei'iit Ion of Jew "1 heartily oppose ; c:-,c has tvaped a fortune- at, the expense tho American fanner." Libelous persecution, or not? Was Aaron Sapiro. member of a race which has suflered through the ages, unjustly attacked? Handsome Jim Reed most emphatically shakes his gray locks negatively. It Is up to six women, ctx men, "good and true," to decide. Henry Kuemmel Is Stricken Early Today.
