Paying the Bills "It is perhaps not surprising that the people should often demand that many things be done whether they ought to be done or not we do not stop to inquirer-arid then think themselves very hardly used .when they are called on to pay the bills," says the Indianapolis News. "Yet there is nothing -that the government does, or can do, that does not cost money, and the more it does the more money it will cost. When a bad move ment -it may be good or bad, wise or foolish starts, or is started, almost the last thing thought of is the cost of it and the taxation necessary to meet the cost. "Now we have been deliberately, in response fr wVii lioo Viann chtitco1 rt ViO 4 TWnlllflT HP-. ! f mand, increasing the cost of the federal govern ment by millions and hundreds of millions of dollars during the last quarter of a century. We have filled Washington with bureaus and sub bureaus and experts and inspectors and regulat ors, and are proposing to continue the process and still further extend the program, "It is idle to talk of economy or to object to paying taxes as long as the people encourage, promote and countenance this vast and apparent ly never-ending extension of the sphere of gov ernment. Men must either stop running up bills, or cease grumbling when the bills are presented When a legislative program is offered to the people it would be well if the first question asked were: 'How much will it cost, and how much heavier will be the burden of taxation?' Govern ment owns nothing except what it takes from the people, or what the people give to it. There, is nothing that it can give to the people, since all that comes from it has to be paid for, and us ually extravagantly. If this elementary principle could be realized as it were visualized it would be much less easy than it is now to put over so- called 'reforms.' " Problems of the Budget Congress May Counteract Savings Instituted by Director of Budget to Keep Down Expenses. By FREDERICK 3. HASKIX WASHINGTON, D. C. Sept. 30. The newly devised American budget system is facing a crisis which will de termine whether or not our form ot government is adaptable to this meth od of scientific, finance. For many years the congress has been beseiged with proposals to enact a bldget sys tem as a means of instituting econo mies and placing receipts and expendi tures of the treasury in such a form that uncertainty would taken cut of the government fiscal operations. Such a system was instituted something over a year ago and has been in opera tion. General Charle G. Dawes was the first director general of the budget. With characteristic vigor he effected economies in operation of the vast government machine, cutting out du plications and saving waste in scores of ways. It is difficult to determine what is saved in governmental opera tions because what might have been spent 13 so vaguely potential a quanti ty that it is not readily susceptible or reduction to figures. It is generally admitted," however, that General Dawes' administration of the budget cut down waste and extravagance to the extent of many million, of dollars. On the first day of July General Dawes turned the bureau of the budget, over to General H. M. Lord. General Lord is a man of eqnal if not greator vigor. , He has found some fault with details of his ' predecessor's adminis tration and hopes to make even great er savings. He has intimated that while much has been done in the way of economy, the big task of holding the expenses down lies still ahead ot the bureau of the budget. Recently the several executive de partments, boards, bureaus, and com missions submitted to the bureau es timates of appropriations for the en suing year. These figures were larga ly in excess ot what the director of the budget thinks safely can be allow ed if a balance is to be maintained be tween receipts and expenditures. Thi estimates have been sent back for re viitfon and a maximum figure quoted to each department .within which it3 estimate must stay. The budget director is proving ob durate. He will not relent and give the various department heads larger allowances. Every executive in the government has pet schemes requiv j ing appropriations and they all fight equally hard for them. The director of the budget looks the income of the government squarely in the face and if the estimates of appropriations ex coed the income, he says "no" very de cisively. - -May Appeal , -To Congress.- The next steps of the offended de partment executive is to go straight to Congress. Th3 budget bureau will not allow him funds to carrv on. im- poitant agricultural experiments, for instance. He interests some members of congress and gets special bills intro dnced appropriating th? desired sums. This procedure is followed all down the line. This is wher the crisis appears. The bureau of the budget puts its O. K. on the restricted, regular items for maintenance Rnd operation. These ex penses r.re calculated to take up the whole income of tb3 government. Then come these separate appropriation bills, with long and often convincing arguments in their favor, calling for millions of dollars in addition. Will congress hold the expenses down to the budget estimates or will it pass the extra appropriation bills? If the appropriations aro confined to the budget, the budget system wins. If the extra appropiiation bills are passed, the budget system is practical ly scrapped because Its effectiveness U rendered void. " The very theory of a budget system is to Tieep within a cer tain fixed limits, balancing income and expenditure. In such a system the toes of a good many government of ficials are trod upon rather ruthlesslj because items must bo slashed from the estimates to make the figures bal ance. If congress calmly walks around the budget and adds various kinds ot special appropriation bills, the whole purpose of a budget is defeated and the same situation obtains as before the budget bill became a law. The question will be threshed out in congress at the session this winter and it Is expected there will be fire works in the process. The President strongly upholds the budget system and has declared unequivocally that appropriations of money must not ex ceed the government income. He has adopted the economy of Micawber, the famous character in Dickens whose homely discusion of the, budget idea aptly expresses the situation. He says la effect: "Income, 2.005; : expend! ture, $2,000 means happiness. Income $2,000; expenditure; $2,005: ' means misery." : " President Backs ; Budget Plan. J' v The President takes the same view and will insist that the American government seek to. have a surplus of revenue ratner man an excess oi ex .pendtturc, Micawber's analysis re Hated to the affairs of an individual family but the case is not greatly al tered when nations; are concerned. For a man's expenses to exceed his in come means he must run in debt and borrow, paying interest. For a govern ment to spend more than its income means the same thing. There is not the element of personal misery which Micawber speaks of, but there is sub stantial national embarrassment which may result in personal misery for many of the unthrifty nations individuals. 'Practically the sole trouble with European nations which now are hav ing such grave financial difficulties i3 that they went on a war spree ani spent vastly more than their income. That is the case with Germany, with France, with Italy, with Poland and, in a lesser degree, with England. They spent more than their incomes and now the must borrow. Their curren cies have depreciated because they have not kept their budgets balanced. This has rsulted in loss of trade and and in ruinous prices for the necessi ties of life. They represent instances in which the unthrifty policy against which Micawber unttered his waining have cause personal misery to thous ands. There is something to be said on th.j other side of the case. Many of the separate bills to be Introduced will b? worthy; in fact most of them will and great difficulty will be expertencea m defeating them. Assume that the department of agrl culture has sent in a budget which ex ceeas wnat can be allowed n ex penditures are to stay within income The budget bureau lops off a few mill ions. Among the items cut off, let us assume there is an item of $50,000 for the continuance of an agricultural experiment station. At this station the department scientists are working out a series of experiments relating to the cotton boll weevil. Five years are required to carry the work to a con elusion. The completed work may re veal scientific facts worth millions to the cotton growing industry. The work has been going on three rears. If i stopped now through lack of appropria tion, all that three year's work is lost for the experiments must be con tinuous and there is a possible poten tial loss of vastly more than the work will cost. Yet the figures show plainly that there is not enough money to go around. The work must stop. There are instances in which sub stantial losses have been sustained by the government in this manner. Government work is in process and specially made, expensive tools have been purchased and special buildings erected. The budget cuts off the next year's appropriation. There Is not even enough money appropriated to pay for scoring the tools and instru ments and maintaining watchmen at the buildings. Tools and instruments are lost or stolen and buildings fall into disrepair. Persons familiar with the government know of these cases and therefore have some sympathy with the extra appropriation bills which de evade the budget. This i3 just one of the problems which the men who run the govern ment have to face. How they will face the crisis of the budget this winter will be a matter of interest to every citizen and taxpayer. After Dinner Tricks Fig 1 jj 312 VU-- , jL-J No. 812 Catch the Otas Two coins are placed on the back of the performer's right hand. The trick is to toss the coins . in the air, and catch them one at a time as they come down. (See Fig. 1.) If the coins are tossed straight up, it will be almost impossible to catch them slnnly. Fig. 2 explains the method. The coins are tossed with an upward tilt of the hand. This causes the coin at the finger tips to travel much higher than the other, and it will prove quite easy to grab them one at a time as they fall. With more practice, the trick can be done with three coins. CaovrioM, Hit. fey PvbUo LedaT Company TODAY'S TALK By George Matthew Adams, Author of "You Can." "Take It." -Up" EXPRESSING THE UNEXPRESSED Every once in a while somebody steps out of the crowd of men and women and says something very much to the point something that nearly everyone has felt at some time or other, but was too timid to express. Emerson was a man who was unafraid under the thought of isola tion. His was a mind rich in discoveries. Stevenson says that "it is only by some bold poetry of thought that men can be strung up above the level of everyday conceptions to take a broader look upon experience or accept some Higher principle of conduct." The few recorded words of Jesus tell us in magnificent fashion of His power to "pioneer the unexpressed." Rather than to be afraid of and repulse new ideas and new plans when they are placed before us, we should blush with shame that we didn't have the courage to champion them first. There is a responsive chord in every human being that is tuned to receive the other chords of its kind. We are drawn to him whose sympathy of heart and understanding warms our own, and whose mind helps us better to express the thoughts which we think. But most of us are brought up under such conditions ot habit, cir cumstance, conventionality and conformity to custom, that it is only the exceptional person who is able to break through these and express himself as he thinks, in honest fashion. A large number of human beings wilt away through the repres sion route. Give a flower only half its requirement of sun and water and see how it is repressed in size and beauty. Nature has to open up. It has to have its full quota of room. . . What we all need and must have to fully express the finest that is within us, is a happy background. And where is there to be found a better background than that made up of other people through whom we may work and help? An understanding friend is able to make us express the unex pressed in ourselves.

Rippling Rhymes By Walt Mason THE FARMER The farmer has more kinds of grief than any man I know; if he has pleas ure, it is brief, and long-drawn is his woe. My Uncle Hiram tills the soil, he hustles day by day, and half the time his earnest toil is labor thrown away. This years he had a field of corn that grew to wondrous size, and he survey ed it every morn with gladness in his eyes. The rains arrived in timely snowers, tne sunshine followed then, the cornstalks grew through daylight hours, by night they grew again. My Uncle Hiram's spirits soared, he watch ed the green corn wave; "this fall.'" he said, "I can afford a haircut and a shave. The way that field is looking now, the harvest will be fat; I'll lift the mortgage from the cow, and buy my wife a hat." He thought of many things he'd do when al that corn was shucked, when it was run the sheller through, and to the market trucked. Then came a hot wind from the south, that turned bright green to gray; the corn, as in a furnace mouth, burned up and blew away. My Uncle Hiram view ed the wreck, crop gone, beyond re call; two briny tears ran down his neck, he sighed, and thatvas all. Oh, oftentimes this sort of crime the hus bandman must view; but for laments he has no time he has his chores to do. Q. Where Is most of the cotton raised? , J. J. P. A. The department of agriculture says that the United States produces approximately of the world's cot ton; India and Egypt being the only other countries whose crop is of much commercial importance. China and Russian Turkestan produce consider able cotton, but the crop is consumed almost entirely within the country of production. A .little cotton is grown in Eastern Brazil, in Peru, in Mexico, and in Asiatic Turkey. The extensive production of cotton Is restricted to regions having the average frostless season of 200 days or more, and 95 per cent of the world's crop is grown south of the 37th parallel of latitude. Q. Does Africa produce twice as ixiuiu feuju eta (.lit; uuiii;u ; v T. E. Wj a. Ainca produces nearly iour times as much. According to the last report of the Director of the Mint in 1920 the United States produced 2, 476,166 fine ounces of gold, while Afi ca produced 9,089,288 fine ounces. Q. Why doesn't it kill a bird to alight on a live wire? A. E. R. A. The biological survey says that small birds are seldom killed by alighting on a trolly wire, even though it carries a heavy current of electric ity. This is because there is not a complete circuit. If a larger bird were to alight on a wire, and one of his wings touch another wire, it would be apt to cause death. Eagles have often been killed in this way. Q. How does a German glider rise in the air without a motor? Z. R. M A. The German glider does not dif fer from other gliders in the means of obtaining support in the air. In all such craft support is received from the action of moving air on the wing surface. The glider, or soaring plane, is given motion relative to the sur rounding air, either because of wind currents blowing past the craft, or by causing the glider to move through the air in a general downward direc tion from some elevation, such as a hill or a mountain. Altitude may be gained whenever the relative air speed is greater than that necessary to main tain horizontal flight. usings ror In order to stall off the suggestion of the bright young men in the rear of the hall, this department respect fully but firmly declines to change its column title to "Worse and Worse."

MOULTON Who's Who in the Day's News LORD LOUIS MOUNTBATTEN One member of European nobility who doesn't care two hoots for titles is Lord Louis Mountbatten, an officer in the king's navy and a member of the royal family. Lord Mountbat ten and his bride of months, formerly Miss Edwina Ash ley, wealthiest heiress in Great Britain, are on their way to Amer ica for an extended tour of the United States and Canada.

Professionally, Mountbatten is en grossed m his work in the navy and devotes little time to non-professional affairs. He cares little for social functions and when he does attend, mingles freely with the commoners. Mountbatten used to be "Prince Louis of Battenberg."
