TI F the present arrangement
J is not changed the coun
try will have a federal tax
bill of something over two
billion dollars to pay on June
15. It is a heavy sum to pay
and falls due at a poor time of
the year for agricultural regi
ons. It would be easier for
farming sections to meet the
federal payments in the fall.
HERE are unmistakable!
signs that the' decisive
battles of the war will be :
fought this year upon the
western froht. The German
warlords have promised their i
people a victorious offensive in :
the west. They know theyj
must get that victory within
the next six months or they!
will not get it at all. Tremen-!
dous attacks may be anticipate
ed soon. The Teutons mayj
make some headway. They
may be held as by a stone wall, i
Time will tell. That the allies;
will be able to hold against the
Hindenburg attacks is confi-
dently felt by our generals and
I there seems good ground fori

.Oregon. Let the taxpayer pay
half of his tax in June and the
remaining half in the fall. - It
would be a popular move and
a logical one should the gov

until fall the payment of half

ta,xes this year.

the world will tighten its belt.
The allied countries in Eu
rope Will do it as a matter of
'grim necessity, and we Amer
icans will do it as a moral ob
ligation. If all the food in the allied
countries and North America
were brought together now it
would come decidedly short of
feeding the nations on a peace
We have the balance of
the Prussian promise of victory
upon which alone now rests
the stability of their empire
will be broken and the German ;
people will know that the iHn
denburg promise cannot be
fulfilled. . It is then-the kaiser,
will have real trouble with his-;
subjects. Apeople do not re-:
volt against'a successful gov
ernment but they will rpse
against a government that :
brings upon them defeat and !
death when victory and peace;
In the meantime the duty of i
the allies is to see that no stone
is left unturned. The fighting
is going to be thick and Amer

the day. Every energy abroad :
