Uncle Sam: The Poor Old Rich Fellow
WASHINGTON. Tho nation will
face a continuation of the nnnu
ol tax bill of $4,000,000,000 for at least
three years if congress adopts rec
ommendations drafted by treasury
officials and laid before Secretary
Houston for approval. Mr. Houston,
It was stated, probably will Include
such recommendations In the form
of an analysis of tho government's
financial condition In his nnuuul re
port to congress.
The analysis will show, nnd accom
panying recommendations will sug

WASHINGTON. With tho govern
ment likely to spend $1,000,000,-
000 or more nnnuariy for years to
come, the working out of an effective
budget system will be one of the first
tasks of the Harding administration.
The bill estnDllshlng a budget system
may be passed In advance of the In
auguration of Senator Harding ns
president next March.
Tho Good-McCormlck budget bill Is
pending before the senate, after hav
ing been passed by both houses last
spring, vetoed by President Wilson
and repassed by the house. As
passed a second time by the house,
a provision which tho president ob
jected to because he thought It cn-
crouched upon constitutional powers
of the president with respect to the
removal of ulllcers appointed by him,
In case the bill Is passed during
the winter session In advance of
March 4, there Is a likelihood of tho
organization of a budget bureau be
fore Senator Harding tnkes office as
president. Under the bill the secre
tary of the treasury Is made the di
rector of the bureau while an assist
ant director Is provided to bo appoint
ed by the president at a salary of $10.-
000 a year. A general accounting of
fice nlso Is created headed by a con

Ten Thousand Have
MOMS than 10,000 owners or Liberty
bonds nnd Victory notes have lost
their bonds either through theft,
through destruction by burning, or
through some form of carelessness.
The last official figures showed 7,50!.
persons having lost their bonds, of
whom 0,038 were holders of coupon
bonds. These figures are up to the
close of the last fiscal year.
For those who have lost their cou
pon bonds there Is llttlo relief. For
those who have lost registered bonds
there Is every probability of relief.
Government officials say probably M),

hands of purchasers.

The officers of tho new organiza
tion, tho Washington Theater Produc

Mrs. Mary Holland KInknId, ure well
known In tho Middle West.
Mrs. Tinnln was born nnd reared
In Chicago; Miss Brown made Chlcn
go her headquarters while acting as
western producer for eastern theatri
cal managers, and Mr. KInknId was
a member of the staff of the Milwau

years, trensury figures show.
Retention of the present uggregato
levy of tuxes, or maintenance of the
annual revenue of tho government at
about $4,000,000,000. then Is held to
bo unavoidable on tho face of average
expenditures estimated for the period.
Recommendations to bo made by
Mr. Houston, It was understood, will
propose abolishment of the excess
prollts taxes In their entirety and the
substitution therefor of a graduated
Income tax of a substantially deeper
cut than under present revenue laws.
It was believed the new Income taxes
would apply only to Incomes above
$5,000 annually nnd that provision
would be made for a graduated ln
crenso even on tho additional tax as
the amount of Income grows larger.
The secretary Is expected to ad
vise congress that the strictest econ
omy In federal appropriations Is nec
essary If the program outlined on the
basis of $4 ,000.000.000 tax bill Is to

dent at salaries of $10,000 and $7,500
The new administration Is expected
to get the budget bureau In work
ing order so that estimates may be
submitted under tho new plan to con
gress In December, 1021, for appro
priations for the fiscal year begin
ning July lj 1022.
Already the house has adopted a
change In rules thnt was Intended to
l)o supplemental to the budget bill.
This change centers In the hands of
the appropriations committee the au
thority to report appropriations here
tofore scattered among tho commit
tees on ngrlculture, foreign affairs, In
dian affairs, military nffalrs, naval af
fairs, postofllccs and postrouds, and
rivers and harbors. One largo com
mittee of thirty-five members will do
tho work which has been divided
among eight committees.
Lost Liberty Bonds
their coupon bonds are most pitiable
In many Instances. I'oor women who
have struggled and saved to purchase
government securities, either through
carelessness or n variety of unfortu
l.ute clrcumstnnccs suddenly . find
themselves minus the bonds. They
endeavor to recover them, full, and
then present their plea to the govern
ment. Of the thousands who have
pleaded for the substitution of securi
ties for coupon bonds, only a negligi
ble percentage have produced suffi
cient proof of loss to permit the gov
ernment to relieve them.
This condition probably will be
brought to the attention of tho com
ing congress with a hope that soruo
measure of relief may bo found for
the owners of bonds ns well as pro
tection for the government.
The treasury ofllcluls again call at
tention to their pleading that coupon
bonds be exchnnged for the registered
bonds. Almost every udvantago Is
given the holder of registered bonds.
Almost every disadvantage accrues to
the holder of coupon bonds. And yet
