Hoover-Robinson Plan Os Unemployment Relief Viewed A* “Blueprint’’ iContimied from Page one.) conditions throughout the country. “Our national need, however.” con tinued the lobby official, ''emphatical ly if of the present.'' The Hoover and Robinson proposals differ very little in their essential de tails. The Arkansas senator was 24 hours ahead of the White House in giving his concept publicity. Whether or not he thus furnished Mr. Hoover with the latte: 's inspiration, as im plied by Speuker John N. Garner, in his declaration to the press that. “Whenever the president finds a sound suggestion not his own. he adopts it." is problematic. In any case, the resemblance of the two ideas to one another Is obvious. The senatorial scheme contemplates a $300,000,000 federal allowance to states and municipalities for Immed iate relief, and a subsequent $2,000,- 000.000 tax-exempt bond issue to fi nance the pushing of a vast number of "self-liquidating or profit-making enterprises"- such as toil bridges and tunnels and model tenements to wipe out slum districts in industrial cen ters. Under the presidential plan the task of rehabilitation would be turned over to the Reconstruction Finance cor poration. The first $250,000,000 to $800,000,000 allowance would assume the shape of loans to states, or the underwriting of their bond issues, to promote "self-sustaining enterprises.” and fnn additional $1,000,000,000 to $1,200,000,000 would be authorized for the encouragement of both public and private construction of a sort capable ultimately of repaying the sums in vested In it. In lieu of a federal bond issue, debentures would be floated by the R, F. C. to raise these funds as required. "To begin with." comments Secre tary Marsh of the People's Lobby, “there is no certainty how promptly the vutious ‘self-sustaining enter prises' referred to in both the pro grams of President Hoover and Sena tor Robinson will be launched hv the states, municipalities and private con cerns to undertake them. “All appropriation bills thus far sponsored by progressive lawmakers for federal construction have aimed at a start, without further delay, up on work already authorized and plan ned. thus eliminating any risk of de lay. “Secondly, our states, counties and municipalities are largely under obli gations now up to all reasonable ex pectation of ever being In a position to pay their indebtedness. Many have hol lowed up to the limit of their con stitutional power to float loans and some already are in default." Kxams at Davidson. Davidson. May 21.

STATE MERCHANTS BECOME AROUSED <Continued from Page One.) tion on record with regard to the sales tax and other taxation policies in Its May issue. Siened statements of their taxation views appear from R. T. Fountain. J. C. H. Ehringhaus and A. J. Maxwell. It is also evidenced from the editorial in the same issue entitled "Think Before Voting." This editorial does not refer to any sales tax. but deals almost entirely with the problems that will face the next General Assembly, the size of the probable deficit and of the danger of new taxes being imposed and urges the merchants be careful In voting for candidates for the General As sembly. The writer of the editorial undoubtedly had the sales tax in mind when he wrote; "Removing a tax from one class of property and placing ft upon another class «f property la not tax reduction; it is merely a shifting of the burden. It is an economic Impossibility to re duce taxes by levying more taxes, and what the people of Narth Carolina need at this time is a reduction of the total tax bill. “Will they get It? No! Not unless men are sent to the legislative halls who are net the rapraeentattves of special and selfish Interests, but who go there purely from patriotic mo tives. "The State's business is the biggest business in the State. It deals 4n mil lions of dollars. When you mack your ballot on June 4, ask yourself If you would permit the men you vote for to have unlimited power in handling the finances of your business. In the leg islature he will have the power to tax you completely out of business, for the power to tax is the power to de stroy." The merchants of the State, as well as a few others, are already aware of what seems to b ea well laid plan on the part of the forces favoring a general sales tax. to put it over on the State in the 1933 General Assem bly. It is also generally conceded that the general sales tax advocates—the power companies, tobacco companies and other large non-consuming cor porations with large property hold ings are planning to make the State senate the battle ground for the gen eral sales tax instead of the house, as in the past. This is evidently in the belief that any kind of sales tax bill will pass the house, because the 1931 house voted for both forms, the senate proving the body that refused to accept either. ‘ The fact that A. D. McLeaji, of Washington, Beaufort county, ieader of the aales tax foraes in the 1931 House, is now running for the Senate; that Robert M. Hanes, of Winston- Salem. formerly membebr of the House and general sales tax advocates is running foe the Senate; that Larry I. Moore, of New Bern, president of the State Taxpayers Association, and ardent advocate of a sales tax, is run ning tor the Senate, indicates to many that the general sales tax fight will be renewed in the Senate in 1933. The merchants are taking no chances on the candidates for gover nor and asked them point-blank how they stand on the sales tax. Here in the question asked and how the can didates answered it; “If your program should require substantial additional taxes, are you In favor of levying any form of sales tax?" 1 Ehringhaus' answer: “No.” Fountain’s answer: “I have never been in favor of a sale® tax as a means of financing the government, and believe that this form of taxation should only be in ca*i of emergency." If either tax should become neoes .sary. Fountain said he favored the so-cailed luxury tax. Ehringhaus said be would not aooept either except “as a last resort to save the credit of the State” Maxwell laid both were equally objectionable. ' to him. FIRST METHODIST. Rev. D. E.
