Th' publijatior. by the House Ways and Means Committee of data taken from the income tax re turns was protested as unethical. The protests availed nothing; the peop.e, i: was insisted, were entitled to the facts. Recently the demand has been made that the program of “pitless pub licity” be applied to payments made to beneficiaries under the AAA. It was charged that one beneficiary was paid $219,825 i two /ears for not raising 14,587 hogs, and that another was paid 5168.000 for not planting 7,000 acres of cotton.

The people were apparently entitled to know how private cor porations spent their money, but they wer not enti 'ed to know how their own government departments spent their money. Apparently one of the largest turns of money ever disbursed by a non-elected officer o- govern ment was to be expended at his dis cretion without the public being in formed as to its destination. Thereupon a resolution was intro duced in the Senate to require the AAA to suppiy the desired informa tion. This seems to have induced • change of heart on the pari of the Secretary, for he announced that as soon as the I’.epartment had com pleted the laborious task of mailing the farmers the checks due them, it would supply the requested informa tion. Meanwhile a preliminary report was made, which discloser some ex ceedingly interesting facts, it dis closes that a large Florida sugar com pany was paid $1,167,665 for curtail ing output; that a Hawaiian sugar concern was paid $1,022,037 (includ ing one payment yet to be made;; that a Puerto Rico sugar producer w as paid $961,064; and dia: four Lou isiana plantation, were paid between SIOO,OOO and $200,000. A corn-hog farmer received $157,000; a cotton planter $84,000; a wheat farmer $78,- 634; a tobacco producer $41,454; and so on. These payments, it should be re membered, were not for services ren dered. as in the case of the salaries of corporation officials, but were for reducing the output of sugar, rice, hogs, cotton, and wheat. The pay ments, in other words, were for re ducing the income of the nation. And the administration is now pressing a tax bill to secure further funds to be distributed in the same manner and for the same purpose.
