::r IN THE MATTER OF TAXES. .
In blowing off the top of its state campaign,
the World-Herald resorts to an expose of tax
rates in Nebraska, and without explaining why,
. sets out a comparison . between the days of
John Henry Morehcad and the present admin
istration. It adroitly conceals all the facts in
the; case, save the one that more money is col
" lected now than during the years of More
t head or Neville. This purposely done to create
the impression that the McKclvie administra
tion has been extravagant.
, f-cfu! take a peep under the surface. Ac-
for the last
cor4iiipr to he figures used by
JJerald . taxes in Douglas county
tiglft years totaled: v
J91J Under Morehead. : ...... .$357.470,23 ,
1914 Under Morehead. . . . 365.333.04
:-1915 Under Morehead 327,486.18
-1916 Under . Morehead. . . . .' 314,223.03
: 1917 Under Neville...': 457.075.60
1918 Under Neville 436.664.59
J 1919 Under McKclvie 776,073.44
J 920 Under McKelvie !. 733,363.63
It will be noted that the tide began to rise
with the passing of Morehead and the coming of
Neville. Taxes under Moachead were collecte
entirety on a prewar basis, and for that reason
no comparison can fairly be made 1tfi the Mc
' Kelvie totals. It will ,be, noted that the sum set,
down for the second year of Neville's term is
$296,699.04 less than that for McKelvie 's second
year. Now, consider that for 1920 the increased
levy in Douglas county for normal school pur-
posts was $8,953 greater than in 1918; for road
building, $140,289; and for new capitof, $89,547,
a total of $238,789. This reduces the excess to
' $57,910.04, an increase of about 12J4 per, cent for
1920 over 1918. In the light of -everything else,
is that excessive?
What housewife but knows that the cost of
living" has increased far above 124 per cent in
1920 over 1918? - '
J. What is true of Douglas county is doubtless
true of the other counties selected by the World-
.flfrafd to illustrate its- thesis, and so for the
state. Taxes have increased in Nebraska, just
because .special levies have been made for spe-
; cine purposes. The World-Herald has pleaded
as persistently, and perhaps 'as effectively, as
' The Bee for good roads; it surely can not now
complain that money is being raised to provide
these good roads. As to the normal schools,
the same is true. John Henry' Morehead was
opposed to erecting a new state house when he
was governor; he has not voiced his opposition
since he retried from office, so it may be sur
mised that now he really favors thelan. This
accounts for another large item in the increase.
Th rest is chargeable directly to the increased
cost of doing business.-
Not a state institution can be managed on
as little money as when -Morehad was gov
ernor; supplies of all kinds cost more;' it has
been necessary to increase the pay of all em
ployes of the state in order, that they might
live. The World-Herald knows' this. It also
knows that the salaries pf the elective state of
ficers are the same now as in 1913, and there
fore no charge can be laid against them of pilr
ing up a big bill of expenses. Fewer names are
on the pay roll than.were there when Morehead
vvas running things another' point that should
.not be overlooked. .' ''(',
As to the great reducticni .in expenditures
iriade during.thc second term , of Morehefd's ad
ministration, it was on paper only. People yet
recall with great disgust the quarrel between
the:governoAnd State Treasurer Hall, because
the latter would not Urfri over the fees collected .
by that famous drug and food department, be
v. cause the legislature had not appropriated the
money and the constitution said it should go
into the treasury. The item was left out of the
appropriation bill that the . democrats- might
make a pretense of economy; it required an or
aer of the supreme court,-at the expense of the
consthution to help MoreheaA Out of that Hote,

Why Some Papers Boost Cox. ,
Some folks have wondered why one of the
On'alu newspapers that has always made such
a pretense of its "independence" in politics finds
itself committed irrevocably to the support of
Cox as a candidate for president. This is par
ticularly noticeable for the reason that that
organ was always a rip-snorting advocate of
prohibition, and Mr. Bryan has said the men
who forced Cox onto the party would sell the
nation for a glass of beer. The same paper was
r'arin' t'arin' bull moose organ, and shouted
loud and long for Hiram Johnson before the
primary and up to the time 'the convention met
at San Francisco. Now, it is doing its little bit
for Cox just as if it -were always a democratic
instrument, v ' ,
Some light was shed - on its attitude before
the senate investigating committee' last week.
It was then brought out that part of he files
of the War departriient, consists of a letter
written by James Middletpwn Cgx, governor of
Ohio, which was effectively instrumental in se
curing immunity for a couple, of young scions
of the Scripps family during the war. So -now
the Scripps newspapers and their allies, among
which is included the "Clover Leaf" string rep
resented in Omaha, find it convenient to sup
port Governor Cox in his aspirations for the'
presidency. It is merely reciprocity.
How do the boys who answered the tall,
who took a chance, and who would scorn to
accept the protection o a politician, like this?
Sons of a wealthy publishing , family, which
owns and controls . quite a number of "uplift"
newspapers throughout the country. especially
in Ohio, find themselves thrust into bomb
proof positions througft the kindly intervention
on their behalf of the governor of Ohio. Why
shouldn't he have the support of all that family
and interlocking group of papers when tre runs
for president? , ' .

Cox -andr the Air Craft Scandal.
One of the evil smells that lingers from the

Jhat failed so lamentably. Judge Hughes, you
niay recall, made an inquiry and report to the
attorney general, most of which was promptly
suppressed. One recommendation was made
.public, and that was . that Colonel Deeds, in
t- i . j! : i
cnarge or construction, dc uimihsscu nuni uic
service, because of specific charges of miscon
duct. The attorney general endorsed this rec
ommendation, but the secretary of war did not
carry it out; on the contrary, he made excuses
for -Deeds, and let him down as easily as pos
sthjcy , It wav known then that Deeds had a
reaVpulLwith Ohio democrats. The investigat
ing committee has just now brought out how
potent it was. ( Among other itemi presented
to it is one of $21,000, contributed Jjy the Day
ton company pf which Deeds is a stockholder
and director and for which he was' accused of
securing contracts whil in the air service, to
help elect "Jimmy"' Cox to the office of gov

SWIMMING UNDER WATER.
"At present I swim 150 feet un
der water," L. C. writes. "Do you
know of a sure way of Increasing
one's lung capacity so as to insure
swimming 200 feet under water?"
In the first place, ability to-hold
one's breath has nothing to flo with
lung capacity. We breathe because
the percentage of carbonic acid in
the blood is high enough to stimu
late the special center for breathing
located in the lower part of the
brain. When this center is irritated
the lungs expel the air which is
rich in this gas. If the proportion
of carbonic dioxide in the blood falls
below a certain point' breathing
may stop. '
In fact. In simple experiments the
impulse to Breathe "frequently has
been suspended for 100 to 150 sec
