LICENSE TAX FOR
STOCK DIVIDENDS
Measure Proposed in View of
Court Decision.
SpttUl to Tms Bon x,nb Nw Voitic HitnAi.c.
Washington, March 13. A prohibi
tive tax on the privilege of isaulne stock
dividends waa proposed to-day' hy Ilep
rescntatlva Orccn (Iowa)' as a means of
preventing largo corporations from ovnd
Inff payment of a larca shnro of their
taxes under tho Supremo Court decision
of Monday, which held that dividends
paid In stock nro not taXablo as Income.
H-?insA nf Inns nf rnvAmiA n a
suit of tho decision Mr. drecn will Insist
that action bo taken by tho committee
Momlny. It Is probable that more dell
nito recommendations of tho Treasury
popartment as how to meet tho situation
will bo ready by that time.
Iftulcr Mr. Green's plan tho privilege
of lssuliiff stock dividends would be
taxed according to tho mnrkot valuo of
the security. H does not believe such
a U'Ny can bo successfully attacked on
constitutional grounds. Ho proposes to
tnaki' this tax rate so high that the
stockholders will find It moro profitable
to take their dividends In cash and pay
tho tnx rather than to Imvo.thcm Issued
in mock. This ho points out would vir
tually relnstato tho present revonues.
Mr. Green dqes not believe tho tax
could bo mado retroactive and that un
der ny conditions the Government must
refund tho nmounts collected on stock
dividends during tho ycar 1917 and
131S.
The Comptroller of tho Treasury to
d.iy. in a letter to Kepresentatlve Pord-nej-
i Mich.), chairman of the Ways and
Means Committee, said that a checking
of tl- 1917 nnd 191 S returns showed that
the Government must hand back about

The secret of smartness in the veil
for the tailored suit has been
reduced to a dot. It is a chenille
dot, a flattering dot, that varies from
the size of a pin point to a hat pin
head, stippled upon a ground of
delicately fine or far apart mesh,
sometimes light and elusive, some
times dark like a cobweb shadow.
The smartest dots contrast with the
mesh in color the dots are Habana

IHE mode of the Spring suit is
well established it remains
only for Franklin Simon & Co.
to establish values. The value they
establish in style is the inestimable
value of fine tailoring and the intrin
sic value of these suits is based on
the premise that, whatever the price,
it is what Franklin Simon & Co.
believe to be the best at the price.
Workmanship still counts. Quality
still lives. The art of fine tailoring,
though seldom practiced, is still upper
most in the mind of the woman who
knows, and uppermost in these suits.
This great Spring collection was not
bought at random, but tailored especi
ally for Franklin Simon & Co., not .
