Mellon must decide between thse
tow opposing points of view.
Mellon's decision In the questional
how much revenue is needed must be
tempered according to what he plans
to do in connection with the foreign
loans, the payment of f 400,000,000 to
the railroads during tne nexii iew
months, the proposed $2,000,000,000
soldier bonus and other financial
questions.
These and other obligations con
fronting the treasury will call for the
payment of approximately $9,000,-
000,000 during the next three years.
The money must be paid out of cur
rent tax collections unless congress i
decides to refund the $4,600,000,000
worth of victory notes which mature
in the spring of 1923. If these notes
should be changed into long term
bonds maturing . in 20 yeyars, the
chances of Mellon and congress get
ting together on a reduction of tax
collections would be considerably in
creased. If foreign governments paid inter
est on their loans when due total tax
collections might be reduced provided
expenditures were not increased pro
portionately. Fresh buttermilk daily at Old

Washington, March 8 Secretary
Andrew W. Mellon will be able short
ly yto tell whether federal tax col
lections can be reduced. Treasury
department tax experts are prerpar
ing tax data for Mellon. After di
gesting this Mellon will confer with
leaders in congress and his stand to
ward taation should be made known
earlyy in the coming special session
of congress.
One proposal put forward is to re
duce the total of taxes collected to
$3,000,000,000 a year from the $4,000,.
000,000 now collected. This would
mean a subtraction of $1200 a yeyar
from the bill of the average tax pay
er. The proposal is based on the be
lief that money can be had from cus
toms duties that is a higher tariff-
but many Republican leaders doubt
the possibility of the reduction even
on this basis.
View of Non-Politicians.
Treasury department tax experts
who are fartherest removed from po
litical considlerations favor the pro
posal for a tax of less than one per
cent on all sales of all articles. Such
a tax, it is estimated, would yield
at least $1,000,000,000 a year and
would prove a real substitute for the
excess profits tax which now is gener
ally condemned.
The salos tax, however, is unpop
ular with the public, according most
congressional leaders, for the reason
that the public believes erroneous-

The Sanitation Chain
No CHAIN is stronger than its weakest link
and no matter how sanitary is one department of
an organization trie product of that concern can
not he what the public expects of it unless all
departments, every link in the sanitary chain, are
up to the standard of the best link.

rooms for the raw products and ends when your order of cream
is delivered to you.
The links in "The Velvet Kind" sanitary chain begin at
the point where the raw materials are received hy us. These
materials are deposited in large glass-lined sanitary tanks from
which they then proceed through the various channels of pro
