Small Earners Carry
Biggest War Burden,
Senator Taft Says
Their Living Costs Soar,
Cut Wages Don't, He
Tells Republican Club
Fs the Associated Piess.
NEW YORK. March 7—Senator
Taft. Republican of Ohio today de
scribed the Nation's small-salaried
employes as the group "most severely
treated in the distribution of war
burdens."
"These people are not getting the
increase which factory labor has re
ceived in the last two years.” he
said in a speech prepared for de
livery at the National Republican
Club "They are not even getting
the increase represented by the rise
in the cost of living.
"At the same time they air being
subjected to increasing taxes. If
they have saved a little money and
bought stocks, their income is fur
ther reduced. Their interest can
only be served by a strict control of
prices and an adjustment of salaries
to meet the increased cost of living.''
At the same time. Senator Taft
added that he did not think any
company's profits in 1941 should be
an argument for increased wages in
that, company.
"No one can tell yet whether there
will be any profits in 1942." the Ohio
Senator said. "No one can tell just
what the tax bill will be until July
1. but I think we can be certain that
If there are any unusual profits, the
Government will take them away in
taxes."
In his speech, entitled "Profits.
Pickets and Parit\ Senator Taft
told the meeting that he saw no
reason why any one should get
double time for Sunday if the
Government required an industry
to run or. Sunday, 'when it is only
his sixth day of work and he has
a free day during the week.
"I rinn' think the wage-earner
is entitled to demand a profit over
anything he has ever had before,
on the ground that our treatment
of the farmer or the corporation or
the individual is not exactly what
the workman thinks should be
done.”
Senator Taft said that he favored
imposition of a 5 per cent general
sales tax or a 5 per cent general
withholding tax.
"Of course a heavy graduated net
Income tax would still be levied on
lop of this tax,” he continued. "I
believe that those with incomes in
'he past of $10,000 or more must look
forward to living on not. more than
half the amount they have formerly
enjoyed.”

Humor Intact
B; ihc Associated Press. ,
LONDON. March l—Debrett's
Peerage for 1942, the equivalent of
the American social register, turned
up today with the British sense of
: humor still intact.
A naval officer with D S. O. listed

A 79-year-old grand dame wrote
i the editor reminding him not to
omit her age "as I might lose my j
old-age pension."
A minister’s son gave his deceased
father's address as "heaven—I
hope."
On the serious side, the new edi
i tion of the volume, which records
facts about titled English aristoc
racy, showed that the war is tak
ing a heavy toll among the elite. ,
i The roll of honor is almost double
; that of 1941.
For the first time, a woman was
listed as killed on war duty. She
was Lance Corporal Jean Dennys
j of the Auxiliary Territorial Service.
| Eight peers, eight baronets and
! 24 heirs to titles were listed as
i killed while serving with the armed

I By Ihe Associated Press.
MIDDLETOWN. Conn . March 7.
—Wesleyan University hailed Eu- \
gene J. Frechette. jr„ a junior, as j
the new champion today for a per- j
formance that was literally breath
taking.
In the interest of science, the 20
vear-old student from New Haven
stopped breathing for 20 minutes 5
seconds, setting up what university
scientists said was a new world’s
breath-holding record.
The old mark of 16 minutes 23
seconds was set a year ago by J. Ed
ward Burns, a graduate student.
Everybody was earnest and seri
ous about- the whole thing because
it was a laboratory test to demon
‘ strate the capacity of human endur
ance and prove that reflex action
eventually will force a person to
breathe even against his wish.
‘ You feel like you're dying,” said
Frechette in describing nis sensa
tions.

Song Ban Colored Groups Ask
Is Opposed by Mrs. Roosevelt
Mrs. Roosevelt tola her press con
ference today that she tnough it
would be a very foolish thing to
eliminate fiom song books used in
public schools here certain well
known ballads to which spokesmen
for colored groups have taken excep
tion.
Her comment concerned a deme-nd
before the School Board to ban
from school song books compositions
bv Stephen Poster and other musi
cians which some colored people find
objectionable.
Mrs. Roosevelt said she thought
that the demand was understand
able because "people not secure rn
themselves are apt to be superserlsi
tive."
"I feel sure that the more secure
and educated colored would not feel
that," she said.
Mrs. Roosevelt also said there was
a strong possibility that the Easter
egg-rolling would not be held this
year. She said she would welcome
the public to the White House
grounds, but thought the Secret
Service might object. The possibility
of an egg shortage would have noth
ing to do with it. she said, suggesting
that people could roll glass eggs if
necessary.
She said the White House was
preparing for sugar rationing and
that persons there would get the
same amount of sugar as the average
citizen.
Referring to the Army's power to
move Japanese from vital West
Coast defense areas, she said she
though the move to other States
would be painless and praised Ameri
can-born Japanese for their attitude.
She discussed also the liquidation
of the housing project at Arthurdale,
W. Va, saying that, while it had
been costly, much had been learned
which would be of value In planning
defense area communities.
'Parity' in Taxation Urged
At People's Lobby Session
A demand for “parity of tax i
sacrifice" was made by James B.
Carey, secretary of the Congress of,
Industrial Organizations, at the i
opening session this morning of the
People's Lobby, Inc., in Wesley Hall
1703 K street N.W.
Mr. Carey contended a sales tax
and war millionaires do not consti- ;
tute parity of tax sacrifice.
Miss Adele .Nichols, a Philadelphia
business executive, said landowners
have been practically ignored, un- .
like productive capital and produc
tive labor, in distributing the tax
burden. Citing housing conditions
in the District. Miss Nichols said
the situation is akin to that of a
national crisis.
“It is proverbial in Washington
that one. does not rent a room, one
rents a bed. The demand for Gov
ernment housing and for the hous
ing of its workers has increased the
value of land and rentable habita
tions without regard at all to any
efforts of the owners of land to
improve their facilities." she added.
Prof. Ernest Minor Patterson of
the University of Pennsylvania, dis
cussing “Can We Finance War by
Taxation?" said:
“We shall presumably finance the
' war in three ways that overlap seri
ously—through greatly increased
taxation, by public borrowing—
which we hope can be managed
through the sale of bonds * * *
and by-inflation which cannot en
tirely be avoided. Of course, infla
tion is the most objectionable."
Prof. Patterson said persons in'
higher income brackets should be
taxed very heavily on the principle
| of ability to pay.

April 5 Deadline Set
For Pinball Game Closing
A drive to eliminate pinball games
here will begin April 15.
United States Attorney Edward
M. Curran notified Maj. Edward J.
Kelly, superintendent of police, yes
terday that after that date possess
ing such machines or permitting
their operation will result in prose
cution under the District gambling
laws.
Mr. Curran asked Maj. Kelly to
instruct police precinct commanders
to crack down after the deadline on
pinball devices being used or cap
able of being used for gambling.
Numerous protests against the
machines have arisen in civic circles
in recent months. Opposition has
been directed principally against
"penny arcades,” displaying numer
ous devices. It has been argued such
establishments have had an unde
sirable influence on children and
members of the armed forces.
It is expected the crack-down
move will result in a test court case
on the machines ■with the operators
seeking to prove they are games of
skill.

casts), March 7.—The Japanese
Navy imperial headquarters claimed
tonight that 219 United Nations
| warships and merchantmen, includ
ing five United States battleships,
have been sunk since the start of
the ‘‘greater East Asia war."
(Japanese naval claims, almost
invariably exaggerated, have been
proved unfounded in the past.
Usually they have been obvious
attempts to locate United Nations
fleet dispositions. No confirma
tion for these latest extreme
claims have come from any
source.)
Imperial headquarteis said United
States battleships of the Arizona,
Maryland. California, Utah and an
unidentified class had been sunk,
in addition to the British battle
ships Repulse and Prince of Wales.
(The United States has ac
knowledged loss of the battle
ship Arizona and the decommis
sioned target ship Utah in the
Pearl Harbor attack, and the
British confirmed the loos of the
Repulse and Prince of Wales.)
The Japanese summary said 11*
warships were sunk, 53 badly dam
aged and four captured. It said 105
merchantmen of 600.000 tons were
sunk and 91 others heavily damaged
The Japanese also claimed the
destruction of 1,537 enemy planes
including 461 aloft and 1,076 on the
ground.
(President Roosevelt in his
latest fireside address said the
United States had destroyed
more Japanese planes than it
had lost despite the attacks on
Hawaii and the Philippines >
The Japanese navy said the light
and heavy cruisers sunk included
the United States Augusta and
Houston and two others of an un
determined class and the British
cruisers Exeter. Perth and Hobart.
(The present Japanese sum
mary said.the Augusta and Hous- .
ton were sunk in the Pearl Har
bor assault, but lecent Japanese
claims were that these ships went
down off Java Several times
they claimed Admiral Thomas
Hart, now en route to the United
States, had gone down with the
Houston off Java The United
States, never has mentioned the
loss or damage of either ship >
