"Peck's Bad Boy," which Is to be

Is one of the most human stories

mother and the man who runs the
corner grocery 6tore. This season's
edition of the old favorite comedy
is said to be brighter and more en

been because of the unusual ability
of the vaudeville performers who
are with the company, introducing
their specialties during the action of

has aspirations to beep me a Chaun

the act dances rather neatly.

jroject for a constitutional amend
ment, you prolabiy have in mind some
particular fora of general income tax
to recommend to congress when it is
free to act?"
BELIEVES IX IXCOMB.
In a way, yes. I believe, on prin
ciple," in a general income tax. The
oniy good arguments against it are
that it is inquisitorial, and that it of
fers a temptation to perjury. But
would not resort to the ordinary in
come tax except in an emergency like
war, when I would have it graduated,
6o that those citizens who had most
at stake should bear a correspondingly
large share of the burden of the com
mon defense. In time of peace I would
avoid temp'-.ar.ion to perjury and
would confino the government to taxes
that do not involve much inquisitorial
methods In thtir collection."
