LET'S STA HT SOMETHING NOW.
Ovpt. lkillongev TliJhilk? It IB Timo to
Hot um to ,Pre-War Salaires.
Editor Keowoe Courier:
(Please allow me space in your pa
per for a few (delate.
Almost every day J see some good
articles on the tax situation, and all
?tho writers agree tfhat something
has to he done to relieve the heavy
burden which ia on us, buH no one
haa said what tho something is. Now
I want to add my testimony llhat we
ought to have some relief, and ?tute
Something that ought to help.
In my buBlnese life, when I find
.that my expenses are exceeding my
income, and J know that I must keep
going, . I either increase ray income
or decreaso my expenses. I think
that all have failed to keep up our
incomes, yet we have tried every
thing that has been suggested.
" .l?ir<3t, wo were , told that ^ cotton
grader liv eVoiry community would
help; then the export corporator
we paid out a -considerable sum of
money on that; then the War Fi
ance corporator-we have that
and we still seo that cotton is gqing
down and all other farm produce
going on down. We aeo bankrupt
notices every day-farmers, mer
chants and banks failing to stand
'he stiirtin. We mus? aee if we can
find some way of reducing our ex
penses.
The tiret tDiing that I would sug
gest is that we cut salaries and
wages t? pre-war figures. 1 think
that with tho help of *he efficient
demonstrators walch we have 'had in
thia county now tor several years,
that wo farmers and on-* wives and
our daughters should have learned
how to manago our atfiairs, and
iwo could give them a vacation. If
we would all quit buying whdskey,
'we could relieve the county police.
i\Vo might hint to the highway de
partment that they could afford a
cut from top to bottom. Nobody ob
jected when salaries and wages went
up with the cotton prices, and now
whon they are asked to reduce they
should not squeal.
As my o14 friend, Jake Cook,*
Soys, "The war is over now, ?and we
'mould alli take our losses and go
i work to try to reconstruot our
county, our State ami our nation.
iLike winning the War, it will take
all of us, and Mi o sooner we start
.thc he titer. We are standing still or
we aro going backwards. I realize
that I might have burst a -bomlb shell
in the camps, but we are burst now
M we would own up to it."
If there ls any other citizens In
tho county who think as I do, Jet
them say so-and more-and wo
might start something that would
?help a littlo. Respectfully,
