JACK NORWORTH it a Philadelphia boy. who made geod
at a tongwriter. He began at a blackface ertiit without
♦ven proper billing. ~
Many performers in those day* wrote their own songs *
and patter. Jack wrote his "Moon" song through a harvest ^
of clothes poles.
t He tang it with Nora Bayet in the Ziegfeld Folliet of
f 1907, and the tong caught on. It tet Norworth over th*
borderline from acting to tongwriting. _ ^
He wrote a London Revue with R. P. Weston. The open
ing night was marked by a Zeppelin raid. - -

Norworth went back to "trouping" with a vaudeville
skit, married hit pianist and made a series of short films in
.Hollywood before double-features.
Norworth had forgotten hi* early *ong hit, but a little
Texas orchestra fooled around with the tune and it began to
show new signs of life.
Ruth Etting picked it up from there, and when Norworth
returned from a cruise he discovered that after 20 years he
was again the author of a hit song.
Vaudeville has passed; songwriting isn't what it used I
be, but Norworth can depend on hi* membership in the Ame§
can Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.

-TAX TERMITES EATING YOU
Those who still believe i nthe an
cient fallacy that the “rich can pay the 1
:ost of government” will be startled
’y a recent survey shoVng that if
jveryone had to turn over to the gov
ernment all incdme in excess of $5,000
a year, the sum collected would pay
only one-fifth of the total cost of gov
ernment federal, state and local.
In other words, the bulk of texes
are “hidden taxes”—and they are paid
principally by the person of small and
moderate means. A loaf of bread, for
example, is taxed 57 times. The tax col'
lector gets h‘s share when you pay your
rent, buy a suit df clothes, go to a mo
vie of do almost anything else.
Farmers fear that they will lose
wat°r resources that are vital to agri
culture. And cities and towns, say the
reports, fear that it s possible that the
government projects would result in
higher ehetric rates charged by pri
vate companies now in addition to
the fact that the socialization of the
I industry would automatically remove
I great sources of tax revenue and add
new tax burdens.
It is curious commentary on the
state of the political mind that the elect
ed administrators of government are
attempting to force such ventures as
this on a tax burdened people—in the
face of the fact thatt in election after
election the people have voted down
government ownership of power pro
perties. The American people today
aren’t worrying about budget. They |
are worrying about employment. They
are worryng about political destruct-1
ion of productive industry. They are
w'orr\ving about their savings. They
are worrying about increased taxes.
And they are worrying about the
mounting public debt.
Untold millions have been sT'ent
in Nebraska and elsewhere'for project
which simply duplicate a service the
country already enjoys—and which
frighten and depress heavily-taxed
private industry. Now the politicians
want to spend still more for purposes.
The only encouraging factor in the
situation is that signs are now appear
ing that the public is beginning to
wake up and protest.
