PfOf. Johnson, who appeared as , hair man of the Merchants Association's com mittee on taxation, said he wanted to nail the frequently expressed opinion that the SXSfflptlon accorded to the mar ried man should be greater than that which the bachelor enjoys. "Since ou are talking about exemp tions," he said, "I might add this: I would not exempt the married man. I would not give any preference to the married man over the bachelor. I do not believe it Is a nood thing to en courage matrimony by lowering taxa tion. On the contrary. I would .lie courage matrimony hi making 'he mar ried man pay a higher tax. I think we should not do anything to encourage matrimony and child bearing." "Surely you are not serious, are you, professor?" inejuired Senator Boylan. Wholly gafloajg In Ilia Idea. "I certainly am serious.

He Is himself a married man and has three children. "I believe In the MsJthuabM theory." he said. "Just consider that man Is the only animal whose natural increase Is not regulated We regulate the in creases In the number of cats aril dogs and Other domestic animals, but we let human belli gs go on having children Without any thought of the abll:ty of society to take care of them.
