Where Your
Taxes Go
How Uncle Sam Spends

WRITE TO THESE MEN.
The chief defects, or places where
waste is apparent in the conduct of
the business of the government, that
I have pointed out in these articles,
have been, first, the excessive propor
tion of the government income that
e-Sk'i
conuiti
oud, the chaotic condition and lack
of adequate supervision and control
of expenditures, which have been in
part remedied by the introduction of
the budget system ; und third, the hap
hazard organization of the govern
ment departments and the unorgan
ized condition that prevailed in gov
ernment employment.
The remedy for two of these condi
tions I have treated briefly in the
two immediately preceding articles. I
come now to the matter of reorganiza
tion of the departments and the re
classification of government em
ployees. A beginning has been made
on both of these mutters.
A joint committee of the two houses
of congress, with Walter F. Brown as
chairman, is studying the whole ques
tion of organization of the government
find the function of the various de
partments and bureaus and independ
ent establishments. I cannot too
strongly advise you to keep yourself
in contact with the work that joint
committee is doing.
1 have given you the names of the
members of the committee in another
article but I will repeat them here.
They are Senators Smoot of Utah,
Wadsworth of New York and Harrison
of Mississippi; Representatives Reavis
of Nebraska, Temple of Pennsylvania
and Moore of Virginia. Write to any
of them or to Mr. Brown, the chair
man of the committee, who represents
the President, with headquarters in
the house otlice building here at Wash
ington.
This is the third or fourth attempt
that has been made to effect a general
reorganization of the conduct of the
business of the executive departments.
They have all failed through lack of
Interest. There was lack of public in
terest, and consequently luck of inter
est in congress.
This joint committee is at work now.
It is collecting fiicts. It Is finding out
the actual condition. It is studying
the departments. Presently it will
malte a report to congress. If you
will show an active, insistent interest
iL the work that it is lining congress
vil) take action. It' you do not show
this interest, there is every chance in
Un' world that no action will he taken,
and that things will remain much as
ever.
Hundreds of special interests are
i!a: ing for the attention of con
gress. of them are organized.
Most of tin... :> representatives
here at Washington, 'as. i :v 'tit to
individual members of congress in a
hundred skillful, shrewd, subtle ways
arguments to support the legislation
they are seeking to advance. It would
tuke two or three columns of this
newspaper merely to print a list of
the organizations and associations that
are here to keep congress mindful of
their interests.
In this great clamor the common
public interest is likely to be sub
merged. In fact, too often It has '-een
submerged. This matter of eei.aiunies
and reorganizing the business of the
government and taking up the tedious
details of administration is a dull busi
ness. It has been neglected and put
off time after time because of a lack
of public Interest and driving fore«
behind It.
If yon will supply this driving force
now and ■ display a sustained interest,
you can at least put the business of
government of the United States on
an efficient basis. Congress has been
negligent because you have been negli
gent, but now at last the thing has
run along so far that something must
be done about It. ,

BLUE HERONS A NUISANCE
The federal government has ordered
all game wardens to kill off the blue
heron as it has been discovered that
it is a menace to the fish of Montana
and is not a food bird. From some
who have made an observation of the
pelican, it is claimed by them that
ten of these birds will destroy enough
fish in one year to equal the output of
a hatchery with a capacity of one mil
lion eggs per season. They also claim
that ten pelicans will catch more fish
in one season than all the tourists who
visit the state.
FOR liMM
Judges O. F. Goddard and
C. H. Loud Review Repub
lican Political Situation
Judge O. F. Ooddard of Hillings, and
Judge C. II. Loud of Miles City, two
of the best known and most highly re
garded Republicans of Montana, in re
viewing the Republican senatorial situ
ation give forceful reasons why Carl
Riddlck should l»e supported by all
Republicans.
Judge Goddard's Statement
Judge Goddard says:
"Viewing the political situation In
Montana, as it now appears, there can
be no question of a doubt that it is
the duty of Republicans to support the
candidacy of Congressman Riddick for
the senate.
"First: From considerations of un
selfish patriotism, in view of the ten
dency of certain elements to foist upon
I lie state and country at large policies
tending toward socialism, which would
place this state in the unenviable sit
uation heretofore existing in North
Dakota.
"Second: For the reason that Mr.
Riddlck is know.n to be in full accord
with President Harding and his poli
cies, while certain members of the
senate, calling themselves Republicans
are in open opposition to the president
in Iiis efforts to bring about a proper
solution fif the menacing economic and
industrial conditions, which are at this
time threatening the vpr.y foundation
of our government.
"Third: Because Riddick luis dem
onstrated industry, efficiency and loy
alty in the interests of the state and
nation, and in Iiis untiring and unsel
fish services to his constituents in
countless instances, and which he

would continue with renewed vigor if
nominated and elected to the senate,
wl
bis position would aft'
a wider scope of inf'luei
eieney in securing for lib
advantages which :i new band cou:
not hope to accomplish.
"Fourth: Because, by dividing tl
Mill's between the various eandidati
at tin 1 coming primaries would in ti
probability result in the nomination

"Fifth: It is the year, of all years, j
when Republicans should support real j
true blue Republicans whose record j
lias been ill accord with the principles i
ienonts of the party, therefore, !
y nit reflecting upon the honesty
an rotensions of 1 lie numerous other
cat dates, I sincerely and honestly j
be! e that Mr. Riddick is the logical ■
cai !;>t ;■ for the Republicans of Mon- j
tan and that it is the patriotic and
elvi duty of all Republicans to support
bile at tho primaries. ( OME ON,
LE S CO."
.Riddick Loyal to Party
Judge C. 11. Loud gives the following
reasons why all Republicans should
vote for Riddick for senator:
"There are many reasons for sup
porting Carl W. Riddick for IT. S. sen
ator, which may be summarized as fol
lows :
"First: First and foremost among
them is because he is a member of the
Republican party and has always been
loyal to the great fundamental prin
ciples of this organization, and being
myself a firm'believer In the wisdom
of the doctrines of this partVi and de
sirous of seeing them established and
followed in the administration of pub
lic affairs, I am supporting the man
who wiH work and vote to bring about
this result.
"Second : Because Mr. Riddick,
while he may be classed as a progres
sive in his tendencies, is not a radical
and has never exhibited any sympathy
with those who are seeking to under
mine and destroy the foundation upon
which this government rests and com
mit us to all sorts of vagaries and so
cialistic theories of government.
"Third: Because Mr. Itiildick- is
giving loyal support to the present ad
ministration in its attempt to reduce
the expenses of government and there
by lessen the burdens of the taxpayers
and to restore the government to Its
normal condition.
"Fourth : Because during the war
lie was a one hundred per cent Ameri
can, giving loyal support to every
measure which was introduced in con
gress for the purpose of advancing the
cause of the Allies, while members of
his family were filling places on the
firing line instead of assignments to
places far removed from danger.
"Fifth : Because his term in con
gress together with his natural ability
has fitted him for the more Important
duties of that of Ü. S. senator.
"Sixth : Because his life work, train
ing and environment has been such as
to give him a keen insight into the
needs of the common people and he has
always, when called uimiii to do so, dis
played a willingness and disposition
to champion their cause.
I
After training the government is
going one step further to carry out its

him as a strong candidate before the
people and one who can and will be

Veterans' bureau, known as the em

charged with the following duties:
1. To procure employment oppor

2. To establish all necessary con
tact to accomplish this purpose.
3. To follow up the rehabilitated
veteran on the job for the purpose of
assisting him to meet the difficulties
in his new position. .
