Though that necessity is vastly
greater now than it was then, no

ing new complications in the tax
system to raise money for a sol

"The congress might well consid
er whether the higher rates of in

times be effectively productive of
revenue, and whether they may not.
on the contrary, be destructive of

Congress has taken and proposed
no step which shows its realization
of this vital fact.
"Other items, such as improve

On December 2, 1919, the presi
dent of the United States sent a
message to the republican congress,
which had then been in office nine
months without distinguishing it
self otherwise than by the fact that
it had its eyes glued on the 1920
campaign and couldn't take them off
long enough to meet the nation's
vital and pressing needs.
Among the suggestions made by
the president were the following:
"I hope that congress will being
to a conclusion at this session legis
lation looking to the establishment
of a budget system."
There is yet no budget system.
"Another and no less important
aspect of the problem is the ascer
Jainment of the economy and effii- '
ciency with which moneys appropri- i
ated are expended."
Money is still appropriated and
spent in the same old way, only with
a wilder liberality than ever before.
"So one is authorized or equipped ,
to ascertain whether the money has I
been spent wisely, economically ana
effectively. The auditors should be
highly trained officials with perma
nent tenure In the treasury depart
ment, free of obligations to or mo
tives of consideration for this or any
subsequent administration."
Six months later, with congress
looking hopefully toward an early
adjournment for a season of political
campaigning, this unhappy fact is
still true.
"I trust that congress will give
