CONGRESSMEN URGE PUBLICITY
FOR ALL FACTS ON INCOME
TAX RETURNS.
Washington, April 28. Demand
for income tax publicity is gaining
sweep every day.
Realization that big incomes will
continue to escape taxation unless
there is full and continuous publicity
is spreading rapidly.
Here are the opinions of five mem
bers of congress favoring publicity of
income tax returns:
EDWARD KEATING, COLORADO:
"I earnestly favor publicity of income
tax returns. There is no tenable ar
gument in opposition to -the pro
posal." THOMAS L. RUBEY, MISSOURI:
"I can see no valid reason why these
returns should not be open to public
inspection. In many states taxes
paid by citizens can be known to any
one who desires to make Inquiry of
the tax collecting authorities. I can
not see why the same should not ap
ply to direct tares collected for gov
ernment support."
WM KETTNER, CALIFORNIA:
"I favor publicity at all times. In a
state and country anyone can look
up the record to see just what a mani
is assessed for. Why should it be oth
erwise with the national govern-
ment?" I
M. CLYDE KELLY, PENNSYL-
VANIA: "Publicity will do much to!
prevent fraud and inequality, since it
is hard for crooked things to endure
the sunlight and remain crooked."
D. A. HOLLINGWORTH, OHIO.'
"Ordinarily I decline to be interview-t
ed on public questions without time
for reflection, but I am so thorough-
ly committed to the publicity of '
everything connected with the gov-'
ernment I should have no hesitation
in voting for such a proposal if prop
erly brought before congress."
