clared that he quit the labor cab

"dragged too far behind the

He pointed to the arms expen

that "the civilian economy of
the western world outside Am

IN STATE LEGISLATURE
On the state scene, the sales
tax has become a dead issue in
this session of the legislature.
Sponsors of the $25 million-a-year
measure, Sen. Dwight Bur
new said his "head is sore from
knocking it against the wall" and
did not ask the legislature to
raise the bill which was killed
last week by a 6 to 2 vote of
the revenue committee.
Burney's remarks prompted
Sen. Ed F. Lusienski to suggest
that the legislature place on the
$52 ballot a constitutional amend
ment prohibiting a state property
tax. "This would serve notice on
the next legislature that it must
report to something else,'" he
said, "thus clearing the way for
a state income or sales tax."

Principle Begins Early
"This occasion illustrates
principle which begins early in
life and operate, consistently and
inexorably the principle of dif
ferentiation, that all of us are not
alike, in tastes, talents or energy
and that these differences become
of great importance to us as in
dividuals and to our society.
"Anyone who looks at the
American scene with a discrimi
nating eye soon discovers this
simple but important fact: that
some people exercise a great deal
more influence than do others.
Strive for Principles
"They do not exercise this in
fluence because they are entitled
by law to do so, or because birth
or even wealth gives them such
power but because of qualities of
mind and character that make
the rest of us willing to acknowl
edge their leadership and eager
to follow their suggestions.
"No matter how hard we have
striven to establish principles of
equality in this country, equality
before the law and equality of
opportunity, we have never found
a way to establish equality of in
fluence. "The world is not likely ever
to find the means of equalizing
the influence of people in the
management of its affairs. We
shall always be compelled to rely
upon those whose capacities and
positions enable them to guide
our minds and actions.
