Are We to Be Taxed Out
of Existence Asks Fred
Sins at E.Chicago
"Are we to be taxed out of exist
ence? When will the peak of tax
assessing be reached? Shall we al
low . the tax emeptlon list to In
crease r were subejets touched up
on in the address of Fred A. 61ms,
former chairman of the State Tax
Board and nationally known tax
expert, when speaking before the
members of the Chamber of Com
merce and ladles of me AV. C. T. U.
at the Congregational church yes
terday noon at East Chicago. ;
Plain and distinct facts of the tax
situation as it now exists in the
state, of Indiana were unfolded in
the talk of the former state tax
commissioner." He did not hesitate
in divulging any official secrets that
were practiced during his career as
a .member ot the board, or keep
secret any Intricate methods used
by the taxing bodies. Pointing out
that the excessive tax assessments
were becoming burdensome and dan
gerous to the security of the coun
try. Attorney Sims said that' while
It wasn't the purpose of the con
certed fight on high taxes to thwart
the progress of the nation, the
question of excessive taxes would
have to be solved before they be
come confiscatory to homes and,
property. Not attempting to convey
any misapprehension to his audi
ence, the speaker by records and
statistics of the State Tax Board
showed that with the gradual In
crease each year of taxes, families
were constantly being taxed out -f
their homes. . ;
Consistent with the progress of
the country, the taxes have grown
materially and taking note of this
fact, the former state official said
that he was not attacking , any
heavy expenditures rr:ade. He de
picted, however, the inevitable cli
max if this increase is allowed to
continue. . From an official tabula
tion of f.g-ires prepared In the of
fice of the State Tax Board, Mr,
Sims read that since 1300 there ha3
been an increase of 510 per cent In
the taxes of Indiana. He taid that
this year the people of Indiana are
paying nearly five times as much
taxes as was assessed in 1900" The
Informant did not try to cloud the
minds of. his listeners with saying
that the excessive tax problem ap
plied to the eonnnes of this state
only, but mentioned "that this epi
demic was existent everywhere.
Neither did f.e leave the impression
that the abnormal period of 1920-22
could be taken as a basis for the
argument -against high taxes. He
simply conveyed the cold facts of
present tax conditions and said that
only by conservative efforts on the
part of everyone could the people
hope to lessen taxes and get back
to sound government.
"The taxes are going to increase
if 'we continue demanding good
roads, high class schools, and in
fact if we demand modern improve
ments In government, we'll have to
pay the 'fiddler'," raid Attorney
Sims. "We cannot blame the asses
sor who fixes the property values
for if he were to slice the values 00
per cent, the tax spending bodies
would only Increase their levies 100
per cent so as to produce the same
amount of money to be spent."
The only opinion advanced in Mr.
Sims' address was offering a pos
sible solution to high taxes by less
ening the number of lax exemptions
and placing these on the tax dupli
cate. Mr. Sims gave this sugges
tion as a potential factor in solving
the Indiana tax situation.

Hospital Yesterday
Spirited protest asainst the con
struction of the proposed Lake
county tuberculosis sanitarium on
the elaborate scale provided in the
plans of the architect was regis
tered yesterday at a meeting at the
Lyndora liot.il in Hammond which
was attended by members of the
Hammond Manufacturers Associa
tion, county officials and officers of
the Lake County Tuberculosis Asso
Speakers, expressing the senti
ments of the manufacturers, de
clared that they believed the plans
for the sanitarium were far too
elaborate and that many thousands
of dollars could be saved the tax
payers by discreet pruning of the
plans and specifications. It wa
pointed out that according to ttr:
bids submitted to the county com
missioners recently the administra
hum j ii tii rr m iiiiiiriitin r
tion buildius' alone would eat up
the appropriation which has been
voted for the entire project.
Representatives of the tubercu
losis society agreed with the speak
ers and commended the county com
missioners for refusing to let any
contracts tinder the present speci
fications. It was proposed that a commit
tee be appointed to make physical
Inspections cf sanitariums in Indi
ana and other states tmd to get In
touch with reliable authorities on
planning such institutions. George
Chapln, president of the manufac
turers' association, who presided a?
