TAX OX GASOLINE
The- Ls un!rr v. ay In thl tat9 fl.t this tlm a
well drfln 1 movement, led by the governor of the
stat to er.ict üt tho next session of the legislature
a l.w levying a tax on raolin
Unlesi tl. I prop-'.al meet h concerted, condem
nation whl.h It fo J.:.tly (!o'on-M from tv-'rj' citizen
cf tb etat1, unless tho members of tho legislature
and tho povcrnor are brought to realize that this 13
a time, not for new methods cf taxation but for more
rlffld economy. It Is quito possible that the 1523
legtdaturo of Indiana my offset any really beneficial
legislation by the greatc.-:: betrayal cf trust of a
generation.
This proposal for now tAx-a is one of the most
insidious scheme that ha3 ever been attempted to
I foisted uron a trusting democratic people. It
has not a single recommendation for adoption other
than that it will tap a fruitful source, of revenue and
is a pet proposal of the .state's executive. Certain!
It Is not a party measure, cannot command party
support, and It? publicans und Democrats allko
thould not roiintpnan'u tho possibility of putting
such a law on Indiana statute books.
"Wh!! It has o little to recommend it. there are
many vital reasons why it fhould not bo allowed
to t)rome a law. In tho first place It mak a
eieclous and treacherous appeal as class legisla
tion. On the, face of it tho Law would but impose a
tar on owners of gasoline vehicles, automobiles
trucks, tractors, etc. As a matter cf fact such a tax
would bo a tax on the entire state Just as surely and
certainly as if it were In ithe form of an Increase in
tho generil tax rvv of st, and, as soich, would
be rld fcr In higher prices for necessities of life.
The automobile is no longer In the luxury class,
and a tax on gasoline cannot be Justified as a luxury
tax. The automobile 1 now an essential unit of the
transportation o-stem of tho mate and nation and
it has been a most important factor In lovrlng
transportation costs, particularly In Instances of
short haula. Any further tax cn this means of trans
portation will Just a-$ surely increase costs of neces
sities of lifo as a tax on railroads.
Take, for Instance, the manner in which the auto
mobile, truck and tractor have revolutionized the
character of Agriculture. Thf proposed law would
unquestionably hit farmers, as a class, hardest. Does
it need to be shown more clearly that Puch a tax
could have but one result the direct Increase In
cost of food? Or -would Jt be expected that tho
farmer should necept this additional tax as a per
sonal burden on him. and not to be added to his
costs of producing and marketing his crops?
If the proposal were to levy a direct tax on bread,
milk, moat, coal or clothing, the Indignant protests
of tho people of the J-ta'e would quickly halt any
uch movement, und your representatives and your
povernor well know tlvis. Yet there ia tho demand
from them for a levy which is an Indirect tax on
thrso pa mo essentials. For what difference is thero
between levying a tax directly on necessities and
cn something e!- wiiich will inevitably increase the
cast of these xu c ssities?
Accept this principle, of taxation and it will bo
but a phor: step to tax food, fuel, clothing, etc..
directly. Once the principle has been conceded in
directly, it is only a prop. it assumption to believe
that it is rlt;ht. Certainly thse cornmotlitie are a
fruitful sdiirc of taxation revcn'.ie. and that seems
to be the main point your lawmakers and your gov
ernor have, in mind.
Accept this principle ar.d you put a premium on
reckless and extravagant expenditure of your re
tsources, and ceck!cs.J and extravagant expenditure
Is Ju-t .rus vicious in t-rovi rnment m It is in private
life.
Vhst we r.e-d now ls not :uw sources cf taxation.

THE KEir ITALY
During the coming winter Italy will deserve at
tention as a great political force which has been
comparatively quiet In most of the European dia
cussiojs thus far, but which lias suddenly taken a
place in the foreground and means to keep it.
Mussolini, the new- Italian premier, is booked for
action at homo and abroad. I'or his homo plans
outsiders may fe?i little concern. As to his foreign
policies he sounds a trumpet of defiance as follows:
"In regard to the foreign policy, we wish to follow
a course of dignity and usefulness. "Wo are not Able
to follow a policy of altruism or complete abandon
ment to others. Italy today is powerful, and abroad
they are beginning to recognize that this rower,
which it is necessary neither to exaggerate nor min
imize, is a simple formula of nothing for nothing.
Those who desire to see the proofs of our friend
ship must give us the same proofs.
"Italy of Fascism does not wish to tear up treaties.
It does not wish to desert its war-time allle. But
Italy asks her allies to search their consciences and
examine what they have not done since the armis
tice." All of v-hich is plain speaking from a source from
which no speaking at all was expected. It means
that Hr.g'and and France, calmly putting the Near
Hast puz?.le together to suit themselves and Turkey,
have forgotten one of the most Important pieces
Italy but -the map cannot be completed that way.
It Is discouraging, but it is not surprising. It
may be that in Mussolini's blunt practicality there
lies a more hopeful solution of the whole muddle
than in the suave diplomacy exercised hitherto. In
any event, the history now being written will make
lively rending.

Your Health
By Dr. R. S. Copeland
Health Commissioner, N. Y. Citj
Medical history is filled with start
ling discoveries and revolutionary
ideas. It ls not wise to accept every
new thing in medicine as gospel
truth. It sometimes takes a very
long time, to determine the real value
of novel methods.
On the other hand, it Is unwise to
sneer ot the new things. Much real
progress has been made. By reason
of the new knowdedge the span of
life is being extended.
High blood pressure Is a condition
which has been, talked about so
much that many'a person becomes
frightened if it is nuggested as a
possible explanation of tho symp
toms in his case. This is foolish
fear in most instances and Is due to
ignorance of the real significance of
the condttlon. High blood-pressure
may be a sign of heart or kidney
disease, or of hardening of the arter
ies, known as "arteriosclerosis." The
"normal" pressure Is from 120 to
12 0. That is. the resistance of the
blood-vessels will sustain a column
of mercury 120 to 130 millimeters
high. But when one passes 50 years
of age it may rise to 140 or ISO, or
even to 160, and Indicate no disease
whatever.
The active business man, especially
tho hard llvlns and fast-living city
man, may 'run high pressure without
evident disease. The arteries, heart
and kidneys may be normal. Its
chief significance here is that It
should be a reminder of a too-strenuous
life.
There Is an old saying, "a woman
Is as old as she looks, ami, a man Is
as old as his arteries." Hardening
of the arterleq Is one of the symp
toms of old age, and frequently It if
associated with chronic disease.
Over-indulgence of some sort or
in many things is responsible for
arteriosclerosis and high blood pres
sure. It may be overwork or work under
friction, meaning over-worry.
It may be over-eating or over
drinking. Moderation in food and
alcoholic indulgences will add jears
to any life.
"Temperance in all things!" should
be the universal motto.
High blood-pressure In and of it
f elf ls of little importance. Its dan
ger lies in what it may do to weak
ened bloodvessels in the t brain, eya
or elsewhere. Over-exertion on the
part of one who has undue pressure
may cause a bloodvessel to break and
upon tho location of this bleeding
vessel depends relief.
' Anger, lifting or undue exertion
sudden fright anything that will
set the heart to beating violently
may cause a blood-vessel in the
brain to break, causing paralysis.
The degree and duration of the par
alysis will depend, naturally, on the
extent of the bleeding. If. it is ex
tensive, even though the clot is ab
sorbed, a part of the brain may be
destroyed by the pressure.
Hemorrhage Info the retina of
the eye may cause partial or total
blindness.
Good sense on the part of tho pa
tient and careful observance of his
physician's advice will add to the
natural expectation of life.
Care of the stomach and bowels is
an important part of the treatment.
Constipation should be removed.
Proper food, plenty of sleep, dailv
exercise and plenty of diversion of
the proper sort all these are in
dicated. Above all else:
Forget about you blood-pressure!
Follow your doctor's advice a3 to
right living and you will live out
your normal years.
