Oct. 28 "Tax the married man more than the baeh ' elor." was the novel advice given the Stills legislative committee, which is studying taxation, by. Protestor Joseph French Johnson, professor of economics at the New Tork university and dean of the school of finance. Professor Johnson is a disciple of Thomas Robert Malthas, who some ; three centuries ago propounded the theory that the population of the earth tends to increase faster than the means of sustenance. Professor Johnson's I remedy is to place a tax on marriage to discourage the increase In children, ".lusl consider that man is the only animal whose natural Increase is i.ot regulated," said Professor Johnson "We regulate the increase in the number of lios. cats and other domestic animals, bul we lei human be ings go on having chlldri n without any thought of the ability of society to take care of them, l think we should regulate marriage and especially hild bearing." He continued 'in my opinion no married man ought to 1"' allowed i to have a child until he can convince some authority of his ability to pio j vide properly for that child." Professor Johnson is mairled and has three children. 62 MORE NAMES TO THEY POINT GUNS, REACH A THOUSAND BUT DON'T SHOOT To Make Direct Attack on Catholic Church, Plan of Bishou WVIIcr. N .
