Secretary Houston Says Neither this
Nor Other Nations Have Ade

' Storing Supplies
Washington, Oct. 20. Secretary of
the Treasury Houston, addressing the
bankers' convention on the farmers'
appeal to the government for help to
day, said the situation was due to the
failure of this nation and other na
tions to provide for the storage and
marketing of farm products. He said
that every producer was willing that
other products should decline except
his own. He said that some of the
remedies offered are suicidal. The
blame rests with the quiescent public,
said Mr. Houston. ,

TAXATION AND FINANCE
Washington, Oct. 20. Reduction of
federal taxes, co-operation of the
bankers in solving the problems of the
railroads and economy in government
and private expenditures were urged
in the annual report of Richard S.
Hawes, president of the American
Bankers' Association, which was pre
sented . at the opening session of
the association's 46th convention.
Other recommendations made by
Mr. Hawes were that the transporta
tion act" be amended so that bankers
and business men could become direc
tors of railroads, that agriculture and
foreign trade be encouraged and that
steps be taken to relieve the present
Taking up the tax question, Mr.
Hawes said the need was not only for
a reduction of federal taxes, but also
for a most careful supervision of the
expenditures of the proceeds of the
"A slogan recently coined," he said,
"is appealing: 'More business in gov
ernment; less government in busi-4
ness " - "
Mr. Hawes declared that "no tax it
self should interfere with the accu
mulation of wealth, or the develop
ment of the industrial life of the na
tion. "Any tax system which discourages
savings, which discounts accumula
tion of capital, is to be deplored," he
said, "for all capital is used and en
joyed primarily by society at large
and not particularly by the one in
whose legal title its ownership rests."
Mr. Hawes hailed the enactment of
the transportation act as "a distinct
financial victory." He declared that
a vast sum of money was needed for
the railroads and that this could be
made available only through the co
operation of the financiers of the
country, encouraging the investing
public and guiding their judgment.
The passage of the transportation
act," he said, "has taken railroad se
curities out of the highly speculative
field and stabilized conditions so that
jest returns on investment may be. re
ceived and proper service rendered the
Bankers and business men, he con-
mued, should be permitted to serve
on the boards of directors of the
roads, regardless of their" dealings
with the railroads, but they, should
be charged with full responsibility in
Mr. Hawes sounded an optimistice
note regarding industrial unrest. He
expressed the opinion that there was
needless alarm that America would
see changes m its industrial society
similar to those undertaken in some
"wim, a prospective decrease m
prices and increase in the disposition
of industrial and labor leaders to rec
ognize their mutual obligations and
duties, both to each other and the
public," Mr. Hawes continued;" we
may reasonably look forward, with
out alarm, to better adjustment of the
forces of labor and capital.

coui aging disagreement with em
ployers is, in fact, striking at the
heart of its own future progress, and
impairing the prosperity of the coun

sults of the toilers and improve work
ing conditions and wages in ratio to
the production and investment. Every
man should be free to work out his

the shackles of organizations to his
Declaring that production in the
country is now somewhat above the
pre-war level and showing indications
of improvement, Mr. Hawes said the
real difficulty has been in unbalanced
production. The diversion of produc
tive forces - into certain restricted
channels demanded by the war still is
having its effect, he continued, and
the natton has not yet been able to
re-align these forces so that the sup
ply and demand of goods are normal
ly uniform. .
"Increased production," Mr. Hawes
went on to say "is not nearly so much
a cause for concern as is more eco
nomical consumption. The orgy o
foolish extravagance, the speculative
consumption which has prevailed in
the United States and is yet too
largely evident, must cease if we are
to obtain a permanently strong posi
tion in world trade."

( Associated Press)
Chicago, Oct. 20. Senator France
of Maryland today said he received

SPECIAL SERVICES AT

Next Sunday at the Baptist church
special services will be rendered in
commemoration of the service flag
which has adorned the pulpit since the
United States entered the world war,

arranged for the occasion. A cordial
invitation is extended to the members

our economic existence."
Stressing the importance of the
nation's foreign trade,Mr. Hawes said
that without hampering the require
ments of American "industry and bus
iness, the bankers must find a means
of extending liberal credit for foreign
trade without further inflating the
American credit structure. He sug
gested that this be done by interesting
the investing public in securities
"Our future foreign trade possi
bilities lie largely with the saving
America," said he.
Of the operation of the federal re
serve system, Mr. Hawes said:
"Steadily the process of pushing
out war paper and substituting com
mercial paper-is going on and short
ly we may expect that the new cir
culation will be placed as intended, on
live commercial paper and gold."

To Which Newspaper Men and the
Commercial Secretaries of the
State Have Been Invited
Jacksonville, Oct. 20. The Jackson
ville Rotary Club has planned a gal
day for Florida newspaper men, Flor
ida Rotarians and secretary of Flor
ida commercial bodies. The occasion
will be. the All Florida Day at the
Florida State Fair and Exposition,
Tuesday, November 23rd.
There are 139 newspapers, largo
and small in the state and every one
of them is devoted to the service of
the community, the county and the
State in which it is published. The
same thing may be said of the secre
taries of the commercial organiza
tions, and as for the Rotary, the
foundation stone of this international
club is service. Hence in this three
cornered meeting the visitors and the
hosts will be at once on common
A full program of entertainment is
being prepared and includes, in addi
tion to the attractions of the fair, an
oyster roast at the country club and
a barbecue by bon-fire near the fair
grounds. No effort will be spared to
make the day a perfect success and
a large attendance is expetced. The
attendance of the newspaper men is
expected to rival, or perhaps excel the
annual meetings of the state press as
sociation and Florida editors and pub
lishers will meet friends and old-time
associates that they have not seen for
years here on this occasion.

be exhibits made by the county boy's

and a pig club contest for the negro
