THAN FOOD
INDUSTRIAL NEWS REVIEW
By E. Hafer & Sens
Last year, according to the!
United States News, the American
people paid .$1,035,000,000 for
medical0 serviced. $2,160,000, 000
for fue1 and light, $3,600, COO 000
each fo" clothing and for home
rental, $7,650,000,000 for the most,
basic neccooitv n? all, food—AND
$9,000, 000,000 FOR TAXES!
The increase in taxation—local,
state and national — is the mos
startling and menacing economic
development since the world war
It was not so long ago that we;
used to pity overtaxed European!
countries, in the belief that we,
were escaping their experience. ■
Today, with th cost of all forms
of government soaring in the f-acej
of diminishing taxable assets and
earnings, we are very close to the
European level. Recently England,
one of the heaviet taxed coun
tries, enjoyed a general tax reduc*
tion, made in the interest of Indus*
trial recovery. The United States,
unhappily, has no such prospect.
A great part of the tax money
does nothing to encourage indus
try’—some of it is actually used
for projects and experiments
which discourage and throttle pri
vate initiative, retarding employ
ment, rather than increasing it.
It is a bar, not a spur, to purchas"
ing power. It stands in the way of
investment, industrial expansion,
farm and home ownership. It is
creating a vast, wasteful and in*
efficient bureaucracy which waxes
fat wiiiie the public which sup
ports it starves.
Industrial recovery and employ
ment are inextricably bound up
v.ith the tax problem. Until gov
ernment retrenches, all our efforts
to go forward will be largely fu
tile.

VEGETABLE COMPOUND
A GREAT BUILDER
“Life insurance is always build
ing, never tearing down; it con
structs and conserves, but never
destroys,” said James G. Oalla'
ban of the Metropolitan Life In
surance Company, recently. “It
stabilizes business, encourages en
terprise, stimulates progress, sus
tains prosperity. It is the enemy
of disease, poverty and fear; it
develops character, trains in thrift
and strengthens the virtues of
love, loyalty and duty. The Amer
ican home rests confidently and
securely on the bed rock of life
insurance.”
In these days of change and
general uncertainty, a constantly
increasing number of people are
turning to life insurance. They
are using it not only to protect
dependents, but to assure an in
come for themselves in old age, to
educate their children, to build
estates. During five years of de
pression they have learned many
hitter but invaluable lessons.
They have seen investments,
which seemed iron'clad, shrink
and disappear; they have witness"
ed business failure, and the utter
collapse of great fortunes that
once appeared to be impregnable.
In that time life insurance has
carried on its work without waver"
ing—it has given the people a
new raelization of what the word
“permanence” means.
Every insurance policy written
symbolizes thrift, foresight, wis
dom — characteristics that are
typical of the American people.
Every policy written means that
still another citizen has guarded
himself against some potential
exigency. Evrey policy written
represents another stone in the
bulwark we are erecting against
the occurrence of future depres
sions. It is no exaggeration to say
that American ideals and the in
stitution of life insurance are in*
separably linked together.
IN THE INTEREST
OF ALL
The farm cooperative move*
ment is, first and foremost, de
signed to help the agricultural
producer-—to obtain for him a
larger share of the final selling
price of his product, and to make
his production methods more
profitable and efficient,
i In carrying out this purpose,
the consumer is not “stung,” he
is, on the contrary, immensely
benefited. It is necessary to him
that a constant supply of first
grade farm products be always at
his beck and call. He wants food
of quality, sold at a fair price.
And that is what the cooperatives
strive to give him. When a farmer
gets more for what he raises it
does not mean that the consumer
is the victim of profiteering—it
simply means that the money he
pays to the retailer has been fair
ly distributed between those whc
produced the products, those whc
handled them between farm and
market, and those who sold then
to the public.
From another aspect, the farir
co-op i's aiding the urban resident
armers of the country normally
provide the largest single consum
ing source for the products of our
factories. The drop in farm in

problems of depression. As the
comps gradually make progress,
and farm income rises, all classes
of American citizens will reap the
benefit of stimulated buying and
increased purchasing power.

JOBS—TAXES—SAVINGS
FACE DESRUCTION
The National Coal Association
has issued a highly important
booklet concerning the billion-1
dollar water power development
of the ederal government. On its
first page, the booklet says: “The
coal indsutry opposes the gram1
dois program and ruinous policy
of federal water development be
cause its consummation is cal
culated to destroy the market for
millions of tons of coal, to put'
hundreds of thousands of men out1
of employment permanently, to|
further impair railroad revenues
permanently, to duplicate and in
many instances to destroy e*.ist~
"ing facilities for the production
and distribution of elecercity, to
inflict incalculable injury upon
both capital and labor in public
utilities, in mines, in railroada,
and upon those engaged in the
distribution and sale of coal, gas,
lumber, ice and sundry other
lines, to lay furthre heavy bur
dens, both unwarrantd and un
necessary upon the American
taxpayer by adding a billion dol
lars or more to the public debt.”
The facts indicate that no fed
eral program was ever less jus
tified by the public need. In every
case utilities now serving the
areas where the federal plants
will operate, have a generating ca
pacity well in excess of existing
demand. The federal plants will
add heaVily to that excess, pro
ducing a vast surplus of power,
destroying existing jobs and in
vestments and savings. Accord
ing to the Coal Association, for
example, private plants in the
areas adjacent to TV A, Boulder
Dam, Grand Coulee, Bonneville,
Verde, Caspar Alcova, Fort Peck
& Loup River propjects, can pro
duce 47 per cent more power
than is needed. When the federal
plants are in operation, the ex
cess will be jumped to t>6 per cent.
In this case, the interests of
the country face the unnecessary
expenditure of almost one billion
dollars—a sum which will be in
creased it, still other proposed
projects are endorsed by congress.
Your tax money, your job, your
savings are directly or indirect
ly affected.
WHEN INDUSTRY STARVES

ments in the United States was

slightly under $3,OOO;0DO,OOO.
The national income was $35,500
000,000. Tuxes thus took around
ten percent of our earnings. In
1933, according to a recent esti
mate, the cost of government was
about $20,000,000,000. The na
tional income had sunk to the
abnormal low of about $60,000,
000,000. At that ratio taxes re
quired 33 percent of it, said J. B.
Johnson, Vice President of the
Ohio Public Servce Co., Elyria, 0
In brief, the cost of govern
ment has risen 700 percent while
the national income has risen less
than 100 percent. The probabil
ity is that figures for 1934 will
show still further distortion of
the relationship between income
and cost of government.
Here is one of the main reas
ons why we are finding it so dif
ficult to effect recovery. Money
that, if taxation were reasonable,
purchasing of supplies and indus
trial expansion, goes instead to
government. It is kept out of
the normal channels of trade.
Bureaucracy eats it and grows
fat—business starves.
Based dsn the above estimate
one third of the average family
income is now taken to pay the
cost of government, directly or
indirectly. The price of every
thing purchased from a lead pen
cil to an automobile, is made
.higher because of the tax burden.
The seriousness of this prob
lem cannot be overemphasized.
V/e are reaching the point where
government must adjust its cost
to a reasonable percentage of the
national income, or business will
i cctinue in the doldrums.

authorities and safety Workers,
automobile casualties still ac
count for more child fatalities
than any other accidental cause.
I .last year, 4,100 boys and girls
of school age were killed in such
mishaps, and many thousands
more were injured, according to
figures supplied by the National
Bureau of Casualty aud Surety
Underwriters.
Statistics appear to place the
blame heavily on motorists, for
the youngsters have shown a re
markable ability to watch out
for themselves by observing
afety rules and principles. In
rive-years, for example while mo
tor vehicle accidents involving
adults have increased 54 percent
those involving children have de'
creased 20 percent.
It has been sad that the achiev*
ment 'in the schools is the bright
est spot in the entire safety move
ment. Children can be taught to
respect and obey the rules
governing their own conduct in
traffic, but they are helpless if
careless motorists refuse to co
operate.
Motorists, take care for school
children. The sign: “School A

commandment.
WAGNER COSTIGAN
BILL
y Stuart News Service
The Bristol, Ten., Hearld-Coir
ier, ugust 15, 1934, stated that
there had been, a double lynching
in Benton Couaty, Mississippi, by
two separate mobs, but the vic
tims were hanged to the same tree,
accused of the murder of a white
man. The trial was to start in
the circuit court at Ashland. In
each case the officers were stop
ped by a dozen or more masked
men. The prisoners taken and
killed; for these lynchings, as for
all others, there was on defense
or excuse. If they were guilty,
there could have been no doubt as
to their fate.
If they were not guilty, that had
as much right to live as other in
nocent men. The sheriff and the
district attorney says, every effort
will be made to bring the lynchers
into court. The statement sounds
familiar. Two more accused per
sons have been dprived of life
without process of law, in viola
tion of all the principles of jus
tice ; that is why Congress will en
act a Federal lynch law. It is said
that this bill will infringe on state
rights. But states have no right
to bow to mob rule. If the officers
of the states are opposed to Fed
eral Laws, they should punish the
offenders and make it unnecessary
as well as undesirable.
While the Knoxville, Tenn.,
News-Sentinel, Aug. 22nd, says,
that since January to June 1st,
there have been two lynching.
Since June 1st, there have been 12.
Prior to this date the Costigan
Wagner Federal Anti-Lynching
Bill was a live issue in Congress.
This threat wras removed about the
first of June, when the bill was
pigeoned-holed. Since that date
.more than one person a week has
been lynched, and in no instance
has any of the Lynchers been pun
ished. The N. A. A. C. P. has ap
pealed to the President Roosevelt
to insist on an anti- lynching bill
at the next session of Congress.
It is indeed hopeful sign for fair
ness and justice when two leading
newspapers published in the heart
of the south, makes, such a state
ment for law and order. It is
clear that an anti-lynch bill is ab
solutely necessary. There is ar
election and every Negro that is
approached for their support
should find out how the candidate
stands on thi3 bill. This must
apply to all candidates local or
national.
By Andrew T. Stuart
Whether we realize it or not, it is
never the less a fact, that the political
campaign is on, an dit seems at this
time that there are several Negro
Damocrats making bids to control
the campaign set-up. Mr- Stanley
Hale, who was one of the most active
workers for Congressman Edward R.
Burke for the SeSnatorial nomination
in the primaries feels that he is due
frst consideration. Mr. Hale has a
group of workers who understands
the political situation among the Ne
gro voters, and believes that f he is
i iven the chance that he had during
the primaries, he would be able to
wage a successful campaign among
this group.
' Mr. Harry LelancL, tate Oil Inspec
tor and President of the Nebraska
Nero Democratic Club, feels that it
is his righful honor to be the mouth
| piece for anything of importance
coming from the ranks of the Dem
ocratic party for Negroes, in this
state and partcularly Douglas County
But the mere fact of his attack upon
Congressman Burke and his sup
porters, who worked night and day
for Governor Bryan in the primaries,
made his selection rrypractable. Rep
resentative Johnny Owen, who is up
for re-election would like to see some
of his friends get this privilege as he
knows that his chance of support la
slim with any of the old crowd
i Well what about the Non-Partisar
organization, composed of both Dem
ocrats and Republicans, of which
Sgt. Issac Bailey is president, and
Miss Gertrude Lucas is secy. To my
knowledge it is the frst time that a
.place has bee nset-up and financed
by Negroes in this state, and offered
o caadidates of both parties; and if
we are rightfully informed there Is
sufficient space for each party to con
duct there own business set trp and
if it Is the aim of the central com
mitee to keep down expenses and at
the same time wedge an effctive cam
paign. it would do no ham to look
ino this matter. What ever the cen
tral committee decides it will receive
| he support of all the Negro demo
crats and a large number of the old
rock-ribbed republican.
POLITICAL OUTLOOK
The wise ones along the stroll is
aying that this will be a keen polit
ical battle fought between the two
great parties. We are concerned
J greatly about the action of the men
jwho are to manage the ship of state,
liooking backward at the achievements
of the present administration we are
interested in eleetin men who will
support the President’s program. Nor
can we see any hope for the country
should the Republicans win this fall
5t is fully realized by the people of
this nation that there is not a man
to be found in the ranks of the Re
publicans party that has the vision
of President Roosevelt. Nor is there
a man in this state with the ability,
honesty, and fairness as Congress
man Edward Burke, unless it is Sen
ator Norris. The situaton so far as
we are concerned calls for much
thought and self-reliance on our part
less we make a mistake. We are
told by political leaders of the re
pu blican party that their chancefor
j victory this fall is good. This in
J spite of the favorable attitude towards
ithe democratic party throughout the
I nation and the most thrllng group of
candidates that have been presented
by the democratic party to the voters
of the state.
| However the chances can be tak
en, the Nero voters will be an inter
esting factor in the coming election.
I Therefore if we are to get the de
sired benefit in this state, we must not
divide our vote. The present admin
istration has been fair to our people.
I While in many of the sections of the
country, there has been some unfair
ness, but this is net the fault of the
administration, and m order to retain
the prosperty and confidence that has
been made, men must be elected who
.will support the President's program.

New repor s of increased mining ac

uro constantly appearing.
How long It will be before real pro

This revival does not give cause for
