The ad ministration tax bill as approved by the Republican caucus in the house will un dergo still further change before it is finally enacted. Disconcerting as it may be to observing business men to read one day that certain taxes are repealed only to find them reimposed the next day, congress is merely evolving a revenue measure in the usual way.

Republican leaders in con gress and together with Mr. Mellon a re vised program is approved. . Third, the Republican membership of the house in conference or caucus makes further changes and prepares to submit the new bill to the house through the ways and means committee. That's the status today. .?.",. '. .Fourth, further criticism ' from.', the country will, influence Republican . lead--ers to agree .to .more changes either io the, ways and lifeans committee or on. the floor of tile house before the bill is passed which ought to be this week or the first of next Aveek, .-. - - 3 ...: ; Fifth, the bill is taken in band .by - the senate finance committee -which is fully expected to , rewrite the whole, measure and put it into shape, balancing' revenues and reductions more systematically than can possibly be done in the hurried meth ods of -the bouse. When the senate fi-j nance committee . gets through, a better idea of what taxes eventually will be can be obtained. . . .' Sixth, more changes are made during the senate debate . after the finance -coin-; mittce- has reported the . .bill. . These; amendments may or may not stay in the, measure finally. It all depends upon the ultimate attitude of the house. Seventh., when the senate has passed the bill it is then placed before a con 7! ference committee representing the house and senate where the. real legislating is done. . Then, the disagreements, between the two houses are ironed out as a rule, the house and senate. both accept the de cision of the . conference committee and the measure is ready for signature.. Of course a president' can veto.it and send it hack for further changes but since President Harding and the majority in congress are of the same political faith the measure is certain to receive execu tive approval. Judgment Must Wait. .Through these seven , steps the ttax payers must wait before they can pas judgment on the tax bill. The details being published from day to day merely show the trend of opinion in congress. Even Democrats admit that the changes thus far made are improvements and they exiect the bill will be changed for the better when it reaches the senate. Just now the house is hurrying to get through with the tax bill and -when it is realized that the senate will correct any errors made, the job is necessarily done without, thoroughness. The real revenue bill will come out of the senate because Republican leadership there is more ex perienced with tax bills than is the house. Iiut the federal constitution re quires that revenue measures must origi nate with the house so therefore the process starts there with a general recog nition on every side that the senate will eventually do the job. Must Make Business Measure. The tax bill in its present shape that is, as passed by the house is more likely to be a political tax bill rather than a business measure. The house member ship is mostly new and is responsive to waves of protest from virtually every quarter. Sometimes clamor is mistaken for sound judgment. The senate, how ever, has. dealt with these things before and being a smaller body wita only one third of its membership up for re-election a year hence more resijonsibility can lie taken there than in the house in the making of a bill that may not be en tirely palatable from a political view point nut economically justified. Republican leaders in the senate admit they must make a business man's ta bill rather thau. a tolitieal measure. They insist that the average man who cries out at the repeal of the excess pro fits tax bill because of its alleged favor itism for the wealthy really loses sight of the fact that big business concerns have been laying off employes and dimin ishing their operations because of a lack of incentive and that when taxes are re adjusted a business revival will come which will immediately benefit the aver age man in bringing him more work and possihlv better returns. It is therefore premature to nccept as final the details of the tax bill being re ported from day to day. The evolution of a tax bilL is necessarily gradual and oitlv three steps out of seven have thus far been taken.

WAN .SIX More Power -Less Fuel The High-Valve-Lift "Miracle Motor" is here. This significant term is now popularly applied to. the famous ANSTED ENGINE the motor of fifty per cent more power, and greater economy, that makes the LEXINGTON SERIES T" seven-passenger touring car such an outstanding value. The seemingly impossible application of racing-car, High-Valve-Lift to passenger car mo tors was made a noiseless possibility by the invention of the LEXINGTON "rocking chair" rocker arm. This patented device doubles the power intake, with silent valve operation. Vibrationless at high speeds. No over-heating at any speed, due to the Anstead Engine's perfected cooling and oiling systems. .

A law re cently passed and promulgated in the state of Vera Cruz to permit workmen to share in the profits of any industry in that state has met with much protest and threat is made that if there is any attempt to carry it into effect a general paralysis of industry will result. The law calls for the establishment of a commission of seven, three employers and three workmeu and a chairman se lected jointly, in each municipality in the state which, at least once annually, shall call for the boolis of all industrial con cerns and. after a careful audit, shall name the share of the laborers. The work men are to receive not less than 30 per cent of the total net profits. No maxi mum is stated. The profits to be divided, according to the law, "will be understood to be the net earnings realized in the business after taking into consideration the inter est anl the amortization of the capital invested. The interest will not exceed 6 per cent per annum and the amortiza tion will be adjusted according to the na ture of the capital, but must never ex ceed 10 per cent of the capital of the im movable estate." One of the principal objections made to the Jaw is that it is retroactive to Feb. 5, 11U7. An elaborate system 01 embar goes and fines is provided in case the em ployers fail to comply with the orders of the commission or are discovered attempt ing to evade any of its findings. Goods and properties may be sold at public auc tion to secure payment. . , ONE-YEAR COURSES Derby North Troy Barton . Swanton Richford Enosburg Falls Johnson 3Iontpelier Barre.
