Maybe the radio has brought this about—but I like to think it is something- more than that. I like to think that it is all part of a sincere desire to find out what is what, and why. Ignorance never settled a question. This has been proven again and again throughout history. Public opinion is usually in advance of the law. And public opinion is based upo.n what people^think and know about a question. As Josh Billings said: "It is better to know nothing than to know what ain't so." But it is much more important to be well informed. For—mark it well, there is nothing a well informed public opinion cannot do. Occasional error of opinion does no harm so long as reason is left free to combat it. It is reason, and reasoning, that is needed at the present moment when our knowledge of all subjects—history, trade, labor and industry—must all be global in character. We cannot afford to pigeonhole a single fact. We cannot afford to isolate our minds. We cannot afford to assume knowledge. We must J<now the background as well as the foreground —for in the last analysis the peace of the world, the peace of the future will not be in the keeping of the rulers of the states, but in the keeping of the people, who support those rules. Centries ago a Chinese philosopher said: 'The people are the hosts and the ruler is the guest; the hosts always live in the house, while the guests may be invited to stay or aaked to leave." i In the last analysis no dictator can stay in power without the public behind him. People may not always have the government that they deserve, but they will always have the government they applaud. ■-•'■• Of a self-governing people, of a free people, one says that they know what they believe. Their beliefs are their purposes. Let men be good and the government cannot be bad. Get all the facts. Listen and study and then make up your mind—for you are public opinion. Legal Tax Evasion President Truman has again spoken out in favor of increasing government income through higher taxes. In a recent article in a New York paper, Mr. Godfrey Nelson stated "There is at least one means by which the Federal government could ,not only stimulate competitive business but could derive very substantial revenues. Tax the income of all business conducted for profit, both public and private; eliminate tax exemptions, irrespective of kind of ownership or form of organization. "Cooperatives and their owners, for example, should be taxed like ordinary business corporations on their entire earnings,, and on distributions made o.ut of earnings." In connection, Representative Noah Mason has proposed a bill-designed to tax business of this kind, including government-owned enterprises "operating on taxpayers' money, generally paying no interest—and paying no taxes on their earnings even though they compete directly with privately-owned companies." The government power developments, including the rural electric cooperatives, are perfect examples of the last type of business. In effect, all the taxpayers of the country are subsidizing the electric bills of a favored few. The loss of the tax revenue that private utilities would pay on the same volume of business is a body blow to states and municaplities, and all the taxpayers must kick into make up the deficit. The'legal tax evasion now going on is indefensible. Mr. Mason's bill seems to be the answer to a problem which has become critical. Socialism Increases Costs People who believe in "the1 welfare state" for America could learn a lot by studying reports on nationaizajtion of industry in Great Britain,-'according to travelers'just home from the British Isles. For instance, a survey of British industry by Carl' Harrington, editor of "Mill and Factory," reveals that nationalization has lowered production, raised costs, and boosted payrolls. Mr. Harrington visited plants in all sections of England, interviewing managers, operators, foremen and production workers. He points out that -whereas 16,000 employees had directed operation of the coal industry under private management, it takes 22,000 under the government. Administrative costs, he found, have increased 34 percent. The coal output per man-year in 1948 was 272 tons, compared with 290 tons in 1938 under private management, the American editor added, pointing out that coal output per man-year in the United States is 1,280 tons. As a result of high expenses and low production, Mr. Harrington said, prices, to consumers Were increased by as much as $6.50 per ton'on export coal in one year. Mr. Harrington added that in operating British electric plants a little more than 18 months,the government has "in creased bureaucratic employment considerably", raised electric rates, and decreased the so-called "Free services". Nearly three years of state ownership of civil aviation has cost taxpayers $120 million, he stated. North Canton Jaycees Join Nation Wide Drive for Government Economy Your Community Day Registration February 2 Members of the North Canton Junior Chamber of Commerce are in the midst of "Operation Economy", a campaign designed to secure signatures to petitions supporting the government reorganization report of the Hoover commission. The local campaign is being held in conjunction with a nationwide drive by the national Junior Chamber of Commerce which is urging economy in governmental operation. Petitions are now in circulation here and the North Canton Jaycees hope to obtain 3,000 signatures of North Canton residents and this vicinity. The local drive is headed by James Jester, president of the North Canton Jaycees and he is being assisted by the entire membership, as the young men of tho town are throughly convinced that now is the time for economy in government of our country if it is ever to be placed on a pay as you Z<> plan.
