Senator to Avoid "filching
from Poor Man's Table"
for War Funds.*
?t??G ( ?rrei?e?dr?t.
Senator Borah aay? he Intend? to
help secretary McAdoo and President
Wilson get their eight billion rtollara
revenue bill from the excess profits
and the unearned Incomes. This was
his purpose In tasking reports on this
?ubje-et from the Federal Trade Com
mission and Treasury Department
, "I have had so far only preliminary
reports ?rom both sources." said th?
Senator. "They are. however, very
helpful, particularly the report made
hy the Fedenti Trade Commission un
der the direction of W B. Colver.
. There Is no reason for bearing heavily
on consumption when revenue can be
raised -wlthbut Interfering with pro
duction or taxing unnecessarily the
consuming public. Why Sich from the
breakfast table of the man of mod
' erate means or from a poor man when
tbe wer profiteers have so much more
then they can use' I tun In full ac
cord with the recommendations of the
President and Secretary McAdoo la
this matter of raising revenue and my
resolution waa Introduced In pursuit
of tbe ?tatement made by the Pr?si
dent In bla address to Congress on
I May T7, when be said "thai Information
? In regard to profiteering wss indispu
table and available. The department?
are now making It available and the
next step will be the drafting of a
bill which will reach that income."
Gre??? lecerne? Large.
A report Juat made by the com
missioner of Internal revenue cov
ering 1?17 shows that during 191?
the gross Income of corporations
reporting a net return was over
?3?.S00.000.000 and their net income
was approximately ?8.806.000.000. In
addition to these returns from the
corporation, the Incomes of the 437.
03? persons making Income tax re
turns was approximately ?8,35?,O0O.
000. So a total income of the cor
porations and Individual? makes e
total of over tl7.000.000.000. e
To the above, in estimating the
country's taxable Income, must be
added the Income from personal
service and business not Included In
the Income paying schedule which
In 191? came to some ?4.490,000,000.
while from property there was an
Income of t3.8&0.000.000. It ts In
teresting to find that persons en
I Joying an Income of ttO.OM or leas
derived that income In largest part
? from their personal service. In
cluding their business, whereas (0
{per cent of those persons receiving
i HUM a year and over was derived
I from property, that Is. from "In
vestments.** It Is upon the latter
that Secretary McAdoo insists the
rate of taxation should be Increased.
These are the "unearned" or "laiy"
Some Are Very Rich.
It Is estimated from the figure? ot
the internal revenue commissioner
that one-tenth of 1 per cent of the
American people received last year
I tC.S00.00e.ono of unearned Incomes.
? From the same sources It le found
I that lesa than one-quarter of 1 per
cent of the farmers of the country en
Joyed a taxable Income of over ?3.U10.
j It la estimated by experta tn tbe
j Treasury Department that tbe total
national Income for 1917 was approxi
mately t"-0.*W.om,A(io and It Is figured
I that for 191? It will be In the nelghbor
j hood of tTO.OOO.OOO.OOO. If the new reve
I nue law takes a tenth of this, the
returns will go far toward meeting
the war expenses including the heavy
Item of Interest on liberty bonds.
Secretary McAdoo Is understood to
*">e more anxious for legislation which
will reach war profits than for legis
lation which would place a tax on
clothing, gasoline and the pleasures
of the country. Including moving pic
tures, soft drinks and the like.
Gotham'? Air Raid Scar?.
New York.?Residents of Manhattan
had their first air raid scare when
the huge siren placed on the roof of
the New York Edison Company re
cently was sounded. Cellars were In
demand until the whistle ceased.
| It later was explained that officials
were testina* the ?Iren, and that the
police had not thought to notify the
I people.
Reasonable Lessening of Food Portions, with
Spiritual Sacrifices, to Make U. S.
A new race of supermen In tbe |
United States, and a decadent, under
nourished, deteriorating race of In
feriors In the lands of the central
powers?that la what Dr. Harvey
Wiley see? as tbe chief biological and
psychological result of the war.
Dr. Wiley, formerly with the "L'nlted
States government. Is regarded as one
of the country's leading authorities on
dietetics and health.
"The greater the ?treu under which
a race I? produced, providing It la
properly nourished during tbe "process,
the ' stronger the race." ? ssys Dr.
Wiley. "Peace and luxury Impair
racial efficiency. War and hardship,
hard living, constant struggle, de
velop It.
"When tbe war shall be ever with
America and her allies victorious, we
are to aee a greater American than
we have dreamed of.
"A race that will no Into a death
struggle with no plan of material
gain, fighting daily at the battle front
for an Ideal, and at home depriving
Itself of the amterial luxuries, muet
?how spiritual growth. Its miniane of
soldiers, facing the hardship? of
trench life and enduring the toll and
effort of the trench life, wifl come
back hardened and stronger to en
Traita Net Tranamloolhlr.
"Acquired .traits and tendencies of
t the parents are not transmissible to
? offspring. That ig ? law of nature.
I Disabled soldiers, who have lost an
j arm or a leg. when they have recov
I ered their health transmit no weak
I ness to their children: nor will suf
| ferer? from ?hell ?hock who may
later become parent? give life to
I weakened children.
"Men returning physically well and
strong from the war, where they
have been fed nourishing foods and
lived an Invigorating outdoor Ufo,
will be better fathers to better chil
dren. '

"And at home here we ere mak
ing better mothers. When the War
Industries Board ruled that corset
making waa not a. necessary indus
try and refused tbe corset makers
priorities on steel. It took a* step
for better womanhood and better
motherhood, and when It ?et Its
face against French heeled ?hoes it
made enother advance.
"Our change In diet as a result
of the war has Improved the race
at home. We were eattnir too much.
In volume, too many In variety and
too rich tn quantity. We eat
lea?, fewer end simpler now. We'll
be a stronger race as a result. And
the present diet* has a greater nutri
tive values.
West Hart Us.
"Amerlc a needed to take up a
notch or two In her belt. Maybe
she'll have to take up three or four,
or even five before she wins this
war. If we have tn save enough
here to feed our allies, but It won't
hurt her.
"We're eating less now and the
children of today when they ?trow to
manhood will require less.
"America cut her meat ration In
naif and sent the allies last vear
l.t94.000,000 pounds of meat. She
learned to do without a lot-?of Eu
ropean luxuries she bad been accus
tomed to import. Sho cut consump
tion of alcoholic beverages; but moat
Important of all, ehe voluntarily cut
her own wheat consumption between
3$ and 40 per cent, saving out of her
own requirements 140,000,000 bushels
for her allies. To take the place of
thia she doubled her production of
cornmeal and Increased her produc
tion of oatmeal and oat products
from L'T7,491.I20 pounds In 1911 to
T4T,-?)2,<ino pounds In 1917.
Victory Bread.
"The substitution of Victory bread
for wheat bread," Dr. Wiley con
tinued, "will mean much to the na
tion. It is better dletetically and
hyglenlcally. It haa more of the life
giving essentials needed by the body,
the essential mineral salts and vltl
"And there Is no finer tasting bread
In the world than the com bread. I
had some on ray farm yesterday
morning. It makes my mouth water
tn think of It now.
"Let America take no fear fo- her
future aa a race so long as she < ares
for her diet. Better mothers will
come from our simple living at
heme; better fathers from our hard
lighting abroad; and from the two
better babies. And the babies will
grow and Improve Into better fathers
and mothers again so long aa they
have the needed good milk during In
fancy, and then grow to adults on the
simpler diets we have adopted today.
"It would be a crime for America
to allp back Into her riot of hlgb
living and high eating after the war
Is over, thongh. After we have won
health through the voluntary sacri
fice, let ns treasure It as the great
jewel won tn the ?rar."
Opposed to Dr. Wiley'? wonderful
canvass ot tha future American, la
tbe picture of under nourished Ger
many. And here Is the present Oer
man food ration for an adult: *
Fata "15 grama. Thia was formerly
divided, 60 grama butter and S grams
margarine. It Is now reversed and
the margarine is of a very Inferior
watery quality. The butter price la
fixed at 2 marks tt krone a pound.
_but little la available at the fixed
"price. Rather than sell for this, deal
ers allow their butter to become
rancid and then sell It aa axle grease
at three to five times this price.
The Imperial meat ration la *Si
grams per week, but in many local
ities this Is cut to 130 to 200 grams
per week.
A recent Imperial order waa that
the amount of bone sold with ? meat
be increased from 1-5 to 1-4. and when
tke butcher honora a Oerman meat
card. If the meat he sells has no
bone he must cut enough bone from
some other carcass to make up one
fourth the order.
Prlcea of beef In May were from
M cents for flank and hind leg to
r>2 cents for fillet, all one-fourtb bone.
Milk Is selling at 45 to 48 pfen
ning? a liter, about 1% pint, but ta
allowed only to children and wom
en with email bable? or about to
become mothers. The allowance Is
one liter a day for children under
1 year; **. liter between S and 4
yesrs, and V? liter between 4 and
C years.
Potatoes have In the paat. been
the real basis ef Oerman diet. Tbe
average German will consume
about elghten pounds of potatoea a
week normally. Last winter the
potato ration va? Mt to seven
pound? end It Is now at flvs pound?
on the Imperial ration, but In many
districts hss been reduced to as low
Sat three pounds.
