Wednesday, November, 22. 1922 SHIP SUBSIDY Some people are talking against a ship subsidy who do not understand the true conditions.. Here are some of the things American shipping has to face : Great Britain and Japan arc known to carry tlic larger part of the ocean freights of the world at this time. In both of these countries the wages paid to men lor handilng the freight and operating the ships are much less than Americans in like employment receive. In both of these countries it costs much less to build a ship than In America, becouse of the differences in wages paid for labor. Both of these countries pay a ship subsidy to the owners of ships that carry their flags. How is it possible for American ships to meet these conditions and float the American flag? It is plain to see they cannot do it unless they receive aid from some government source. During the World War the United States paid out for carrying freight eight billions of dollars, nearly all of which went to ships carrying foreign flags and subject lo the will of foreign natioiu. Think of this country pay ing out one-third of our entire ex pense for the war for carrying ocean freight alone, and it all going to for eigners. Js it not time we am some thing for American shipping? One thing is certain, something ef fective must be done or ocean carry ing vessels will cease to float the flag of the United States. and try to learn if some one has not gotten your paper and failed to de liver it to you; the mistake is surely not at this office.

Sec retary Weeks issued an order the he not be allowed to address the cadets. In that act Secretary Weeks performed a national service. It would be hitrhly improper to per mit persons lo address either American cadets of the American people the latter act could not well be prevented who entertains such a feeling to ward us as a nation. Such a state ment is not only slanderous, but should! subject the person who utters it to the strongest condemnation of all red blooded American citizens. Last week George T. Renfro, who has been sales manager for the Kert Wing Company in this section of the South for several months made a record sale of grape juice. His sales last week in Memphis and Nashville totaled 5,010 cases of Red Wing grape juice, 200 cases catsup and Chlii and 140 cases of jellies and jams. He sold 5,000 case of grape juice to one firm, which is probably the larg est sale ever made to one firm in the south. His total sales netted his com pany over $36,000. Mr. Renfro has al ways been a topnotchcr when it come to selling to the retail trade and his work last week shows he is not "los ing his grip" by any means. Mr. Ren fro wps born and reared in this coun iv ami ha; many friends here who wi'l be much gratified to learn of his continued success.

We all hope for relief from unnecessary taxes, and it is right and proper that there should be the same economy practiced in the conduct ot our state's business that is practiced by successmuC private business enterprises. A state official is a public servant. and the obligation to render efffkient service is the same as applies to any Pudiic or private enterprise, there is no justification for extravagence in the expenditure of the state's money. Hopes have been held out to the peo ple for a" reduction in taxes, but I doubt if it is possible to reduce that portion of our taxes xoHected for state purposes. Tennessee is yearly increasing in population, and with this Increase there is an increase necessarily in pub lic business that is, in the business of government. As we grow in popula tion and power and resources, our ob ligations increase in proportion. Some of these obligations are our penal and charitable institutions. They must be maintained, and the cost of their main tenance is always on the increase. The obligations of the state to pro vide educational facilities for the chil dren its future citizens are increas ing with the growth of the state in population. Our educational institu tions must he maintained, and they must be maintained on a larger scale every year. There can be no back ward step in the matter of education, and if our children are to be educated we must make up our minds that we must pay for it. With the growth of the state in pop ulation and wealth, with production of the farms and factories and the mines increasing each year to meet the de mands of increased population and business, there has grown up an in sistent demand for good roads a de mand that cannot be ignored. We must have belter roads than have been provided in the past. Public necessity will get back of and stay back of the demand for good roads, and will force our lawmakers to take steps to meet this demtnd. And roads cannot be built without money. There is only one way for a state to raise mone and thai, is taxation in some form. The demand that there be economy and good business in state govern ment, is very general, but a very large part of the burden of taxation is due to the county courts of the state. Of largely overlooked in alt the discus sions about taxation. Would it not be wise when seekinu a solution of the tax problem to give some consideration to the 85 percent that never reaches the state treasury? There should be rigid economy prac ticed in the administration of county anairs, and when this is done there will be some relief for the taxpayers. There fs fittre hope of reducing the cost of operating the state govern ment. While if is true there are some useless officials drawing pay from the state, still if they are abolished and they should be the saving will be in- i finintesimal in comparison with the i total expense of the state. Less than one percent of the amount paid in taxes goes into the payment of sal aries, some one has said. I do not know how trne this is, but the sal aries are a very small part of the ex pense of government so far as the state is concerned. Sensible economy shoul Te practiced all along the line, but we cannot af ford a "penny wise and paund foolish" policy. We have a state with wonder ful natural resources, capable of pro ducing nothing while undeveloped. That development must have en couragement, and at even for the sake of reducing taxes. It will be found that economy can be practiced all along the line, but the growth and development of the state will require taxation to meet the ex penses incident thereto and to the conduct of the government. When the people come to thorough ly understand just what the money paid the state in taxes provides them, they will not be willing to do with out them. We must have good schools good roads, and our charitable and pen al institutions must be maintained in an up-to-date and efficient manner. We do not want economies that will cripple out state, retard its develop ment, lower the efficiency of its schools and public institutions, and halt us 111 tne march of progress.
