THE NEW TAX BILL Taxes levied in the new revenue bill now before the Senate are offerd to the country by the finance committee with a sort of apology, and with an urgent appeal tor cooperation. In other wonfc, business and the public are asked to awaltow the bitter dose as a patriotic duty, and in that spirit the measure will be accepted by Oh owe able to do so. A two-year limitation is placed on the new levies, tl«t is. they will be in effect until June 30, 1934, and at that time automatically expire unless re newed by later legislation. It Is pre sumed that theie will have been a sufficient improvement In economic ! conditions by that time* to permit a change. Regardless, however, of UmttaUons , in the bill, there are onty two ways whereby the country can be relieved [ ultimately of this extra tax burden. One is that there will be sufficient im provement that the aid taxes wIM pro- , duce enough revenue to meet expendi tures. The other is that government ' coats shad be reduced, to the point that less money will be required to carry on public business. The speed with which recovery re turns is more or lee* in the lap of the gods It may be soon or it may be years But whether it is early or late, there ought to be a sharp cur tailment in governmental expendi tures. No matter how prosperous the country may come to be, there is no Justification for such enormous out lays of public money as have been made in the la*t eight to ten years. The—government. like many private i businesses has delayed retrenchment until the old cow is pretty nearly milk ed dry. and. even with the return of normal times, a lot of recuperating will be necessary in order to get back upon the safe and sound basts of other years Every indication now Is that the new bill will be enacted into law. The higher taxes will be levied and col- i ledted, and will be continued until there is an improvement in business or a very material reduction In ex penses. The country may as well make up its mind to that effect now. A CHALLENGE The offer of the 61 members of the faculty of the Henderson city schools to help me**' the cost of an extra month in order 'n operate the schools on a nine morn.ns basis is a clear-cut challenge to toe community. The past year, for the first time in a couple of decades or more, the schools have been foiced to cut to eight months. Teachers realize, as no one else does, the handicap that is forced upon the pupil when he Is compelled to cut down from nine months to eight. In the broad span of eleven yaars in the uvetage modern school Bystem it means the loss of more than A full year. Not only are tne teachers willing to Work the ninth month for a salary from ten to twenty percent leas than Che regular scale, but are ready to go still further and from their own pockets pay the coat of incidental ex penses, including Janitor services and fcght* and water. More than that could hardly be expected of them, es pecially In view of the fact that moat of them are not even permanent resi dent* of Henderson. Their Inter cat in the welfare of the community and of the school children Is evident, how- ever, by the voluntary offer they have made. The coat of the extra month, alter allowing for these deductions, wf& be a tttlie more Chan $6,000. It would amount to an increased school tax of between six and seven cents on the hundred dollars valuation of property in Henderson township, and will be a good Investment when made. Through the years when great for ward strides have been made in equip ment. Henderson has not provided a high school of adequate proportions for the training of its young people. The result is that we have allowed our school facilitate to lag behind, and there is a very real danger of our high school losing its rating and Its recognition with institutions of higher learning Restoration of the ninth month WUI not bring us up to the point where we should stand, but it will be a step in that direction. Good school* in a community are one of the greatest inducements that can be held out to new-comers to in duce them to move into a city or town. On the other hand, when these facilities are far bekxw the standard, the prospective settler hesi tates about carting his lot with us. To fail to restore our schools to the full term would tend to make per manent the lapse we have permitted in one of the most important institu tions in the city. The greatest asset of any people is their children. When they are properly trained, they are in position ! to make progress and to build upon , what the present generation has done, j When they are lacking in that train- I ing. they are handicapped to just ! that extent. Ai.a Henderson will lay : this hardship upon the next genera tion if it resolves as a permanent policy to restrict its school term to 1 eight months. Action of the teachers should set i us all to thinking. They have hurled j a challenge to us. Surely we shall 1 not fall in this crucial time to meet that challenge TAKING THEIR LOSSES Conscious of the obligations they owe bo the community they serve, the newspapers of America have been carrying on during these terrific times to the utmost of their ability. And let no one suppose for a moment that they have not been sweating blood along with all other lines of business, and many of them have been having rougher sledding than most ether branches of activity. It must be said, too, that there has been little noticeable curtailment of service to the public. News coverage has been kept upon a high standard, and every point has been strained to maintain the speed in obtaining and delivering uewß that the papers and the public became accustomed bo when money was available for these services. News costs, moreover, have not been shaved down. Cuts have been necessary but they have been made elsewhere Help has been re duced, and that necessitates a doub l.ng up of duties and responsibilities. In addition to that, salary curtail ments have beome an absolute ne cessity even for tho6e left in the or ganizations. But they have carried on in an effort to discharge a public trust. Newspapers an at a disadvantage in these times that must be met by few other business activities. A paper tTat ordinarily runs eight or twelve rr sixteen end some more than that. Is put to just as much expense to produce a daily issue when there is not a dollar's worth of business car ried in the columns as it is when the page limit is reached and the paper is bulging with good revenue-producing space. That is something that is usu ally overlooked. While advertising has fallen off tre mendousJy, circulation has held up muoh better. That means that the public is slow to deprive itself of Its only opportunity to keep abreast of what, is going on in the world, and that It continues to demand and to road its daily paper. Unfortunately circulation means nothing to a news paper in the way of meeting its ope rating costs, other than the mainten ance of the circulation alone, and oft entimes not even that. The papers are carrying on to the besA of their ability, and the wonder is that nearly all of them have, by some means, been able to continue. But even they will n ot be able to stand up indefinitely under the terrific drain to which they are being subjected. Bishop at Duke- Durham. May 12 Bishop Frederick B.

HENDERSON, (N. C.,) DAILY WBPATCH' THtJRiOAT,' MAY 12, 1932 >1 JAMES "aSWELLIN By Centra] Press New York, May 12—Parades will always remain something of a my stery to me. No one seems to en joy them muoh, except perhaps small boys and strap ping blackamoors twirling gold balled swagger sticks. If you want to see faces fallen like reflections in Coney Island comic mirrors, observe Fifth avenue merchants whiile an official procession is in proceeds of passing their doors—and congealing business thereby. Or take a squint at my own none too prepossessing visage while I'm In the act of hitting the parade line in an effort to get croastown.

When the yellow light of 7 a. m. plants down across Union Square, the bootblacks take their places. Some of them are youngsters, but there are veterans of the profession, with hoard locks or fierce black mustaohioe These are not relics of better times forced into menial tasks They are. lor the most part, life-long members of the shoe-shining guild. For a col umnist not overcome by his own dig nity and the importance of his nightly stool In the high jinks emporiums, the shine boys are revelatory. Predominating in the profession, my researches indicate, are Arabs and Portuguese, although representatives of every race, including the good old nvdhJng-pot American can be spotted. If you imagine they are as a class, burdened with an inferiority complex from their labors, you are wrong. There are good poll she re and bad. The proficient practitioners, with a following of regular customers, have little respect for. or traffic with, the duds. Over locations in the pedes trian streams through the square fierce competitive wars are waged. One dour Arab, with rackety-rax con nections, summoned a pair of bis thug gieh friends an cleared out all the burnishers in a radius of two hundred yards. Then there is the kindly gentleman who used to be located on the north wort corner of the square. He would lecture me on the carelessnesses of his colleagues, pointing out the emp tiness of mere snap and fury in the application of the polishing rag. WINDFALL No inquiry into shoe-shinetry would be completed without mention of my friend. Joe, who used to own half interest in a stand at Third and 42nd itreet. Joe was a more than ordinarily conscientious burnisher and might have gone far—lf he had not be«en swept into higher lor lower) stratas by sheer luck. He wo n SB,OOO in a foreign sweep stakes, on an investment of 50 ces4s. and sold his share in the stand. "I'm gonna do two things with that dough,” he told me. the morning for tune smiled.
