From Tobacco* Ftodo numerous sources Tobacco un derstands hleie l» (.xiicmeiy heavy pressure being brought to bear on Ktate and national officials for a re vival of the sales tax proposition. PoUtlvlans. of cur.se. huv> made a footbhaii so the plan for months. But business men have varied views on the idea, especially as it affects a national enactment. State sales taxes ha\> been brought tj bear on tobacco products, in addi- T4>n to the regular Federal revenue taxes, as we all know. Some thirteen States, we believe, have such laws Collections have been more or less r accessful. according to the size of the tax and the willingness of citizens to fay It. But it la the idea of Tobacco that tha tobacco trade, for example, is al ready paying just about all the tax J s It can stand. Cigarettes are an illustration. Start ing with the six cents of Federal tux on a package of twenty pieces, we have some additional State import* which variously increase the iota! tax t 0 eight, ten. and even eleven cents the package » •'Rils is an impossibly retail handicap c>b tha face of it. Adding cost of man ufacture and distribution, we bate cigarettes, twenty in a pack, selling for as much as twenty cents for regu. lar fifteen cent goods. Who can pay such rates or cigarette s in these tl#i»s? Sale* taxes, moreover. State and na-1 tirnal, have been advocated to reduce Wrderal and State income imposts Por years and yenrs certain legislator:: have been trying their dames' to shuf fle the income tax*-*, especial'/ in the higher brackets, by passing mem on to the ordinary consumer. Consumers, as a rule, are at theij wlt«' en bio pay curient prices for mcr ehvuise. Add a penny more and a sales tan can seldom he less .o lob ic co products and all articles, and what do we do? ,Well. fpi a starter, we do the very same thing the Postoffice Department accomplished when n put a penny more on each letter- reduce the gross business. Consumers, in the long tun are jusi you and I. I don't want, to pay nvrt taxe* —do you? Taxes have been piled upon us to thy imposing total of about ofte-rixth of out entire normal incomes —if we can still call them incomes. Taxes are wasted in poiitical extra vagances which benefit no one at all except the politicians. What direct benefit thy populace receives can be put in an average >ix and seven eighths hat. Good roads we have, ji seems, and, public building and parks w e have ' Eleemosynary Institutions we also have for the cary of the aged and in firm. Pensions and welfare work eat, up many more dollars of our taxes, which must be paid. Schools and pri sons cost money. And so it goes. Legislators, there are. who intend to collect ibe maintenance o fthese public, properties by ways and means, which are principally mean We admit a certain amount of all taxation is just ifiable. But we do not admit that we must be taxed a sixth of our total earnings for governmental purposes.' W« simply cannot stand it. We ran not pay what we are now required to pay. And it is. indeed, absolutely! foolish to suppose that, if we enact a national sales tax. in addition to nrdi nary import, income, internal revenue ad nuisance taxes generally, that wet shall he better off. and tnat we shall] pay lese in taxation upon another source. Sales taxes do one thing, and they do it well. They reduce sales. If youi want to be positive about this, ask thoj various states, which tax cigarettes,l how the books stand. Ask the manu facturers an dthe dealers who sell cig arettes in those States. Ask the con sumers themselves . Don’t accept our word for it. ; toast? dag. jparbapo, wt shall tnjoy a more equitable form of general tax ation We may hav* equalization in realty assessments and tax rates. We may be able to regulate our numer ous other taxes. W t do not know, but we hope so. When that time comes we .shall no s need sales nor other nuisance taxes. Now. while the going is particularly hard, they Tell us w e must pay them. We do not know how thi; is to be ac complished. but we do know, if a na tional sales tax is enacted, we shall have greater difficulty in maintaining sales. We shall do less business, and make loss money, if that is possible. Sales taxes are excellent revenue for office holders. Sales taxes are excel lent or mandatory salaries of protect ed officials. Sales taxes ary excellent sources of further supply for grafting contractois. crooked politicians. Sales tax.-s are excellent eliminators of bus. in ess yours and mine. If we agree upon these acts we should do something about it. But what shall w e do? When Congress meets i n Decem ber we should - as a tobacco Industry, and also as Individuals—bombard our Representatives with reasons why we don't want, and refuse to stand for. the sales tax. today TODAY’S ANNIVERSARIES 1708 William Pitt, first Earl of Chatham.

When we invite the mother, wife, or sister, or daughter of a Legionnaire to become a member of our Auxiliary we want hoi to know very definitely what we arc offering. We want her to know why we place such a high value on our Auxiliary membership, and to feel the significance of belong ing to this great organization. To get a true beginning in the un derstanding of exactly what a Auxi liary membership means we must lortk 1 back to the very start of the organi zation, to the impulse which “ gave the organization life. We ,-f»nd._ that (he Auxiliary is an organization for the single purpose of serving. Nothing of self is contemplated. The purposes and aims of the organiation lie out side of itself in something bigger and of greater importance. Aiding to carry on the great task of caring for the World WaWr disabled who still fill the government hos pitals to the number of more than (0.000, and of whom other thousands are still struggling to regain a place in civil life, is one of the first en deavors of the Auxiliary. The work which the Auxiliary is doing for these men is something which no other Agency could perform so well, some thing which requires the warm un derstanding touch of women who themselves have experienced the suf fering of having their loved ones 'at war. More than one million dollars are expended each year by the Auxiliary in hospital and welfare work for the benefit of the disabled as well as an inestimable amount of personal at tention which is often the most valu able thing which can be given a suf fering man in a hospital far from home. The Auxiliary establshes and mantains contact between veterans in hospitals and their families. It assists the families of an ex-service man in finding employment, and helps dis pose of the products made by them in hospital workshops. It gives a cheery Christmas to all veterans who are confined to the hospitals on that day. A share in this is one of the things a membership in the Auxiliary gives. For the children of World War veterans the Auxiliary is also doing a very important work. It is aiding thousands of children every year to receive the necessities of life. Des titute children are placed in homes where they can receive their right ful assistance is given to widows of veterans and wives of disabled men in keeping their families together. Wherever children of men who served are found in need the Auxiliary goes to work side by side with the Legion to prevent the children from paying In suffering and lack of opportunity for the service their father* gave to tion in Bermuda. Young Roose velt was with his father constant ly on his tour of 38 states of the Union. our country'. The Auxiliary, by allying with other womens patriotic organizations in a great national defense conference and by placing the defensive needs of the nation before a large section of Am erican womanhood, is helping to com bat a movement which would strip America and leave it defenseless in a world where war is a present pos sibility. No body of women in America is more desirous of maintaining peace than the women of the Auxiliary. The American Legion Auxiliary is a member organiation of the Women's Auxiliary of Fidac. the federation of the veterans of the principal allied countries. This organiation is doing a powerful work for peace and good will among the nations represented by it. A membership in the American Le gion Auxiliary automatically confers a membership thn this Fidac Auxiliary, which is the largest women’s organia tion in the- world. The Auxiliary is working to keep patriotism part of the education of every child. The organiation is en deavoring to bring to the citiens of America a fuller realiation of the re sponsibilities of citienship in order that the American ideal of democratic government may not fall down before the multiplicity of problems which have developed with the rapid expan sion of our population. A part of this wide endeavor for the future of Am erica is given every' woman wearing the Auxiliary pin. The meaning of a membership in the Auxiliary in its larger significance Is then an opportunity to help care for those broken men who gave their CROSS WORD PUZZLE - ie> “““is ao ai ——— zi |p 3 53 ip 55 EE~K B-ID -g ||l °° " 11 11 I L - J®L mlmm JuMJaiaJL^ ACROSS I —Clear 7—Map 12 — Custom 13— Sword 14— Part of the leg 15— Part of the body 17— Thrice three 18— Male singers 20—Real property 22 Twelve months (abbr.) 23 — To regret 24 — Railroad post office (abbr.) 25 Steamship (abbr.) 26 One of the constellation* 27 Identical 29 — Sleeveless garment 30— Long period of tlnrif 31 — To canter 35—To look at closely 38—Like 40— Anger 41 — To make a mistake 42 — Bone 44—High-backed bench 46 —Bitter 48 — Coagulate 49 — Old French coin 61 — Private (abbr.) 62 Propelled a boat 64—Apparatus for beating 55—City of Greece ll—Tremulous DOWN 1— Hearty 2 Attendant 3 Brother of Abel 1 4To pane unnoticed 6 Os. used in word phrase* ' 4—Atmosphere ' 7 A religion (abbr.) 3—Carriage 8 rM>a*i» Utowa* Londoa Bridge Hat Nothing On This One! health for their country, to look after the children whose fathers were taken for a bigger duty, to aid in the de velop if this great country' for which so many have been willing to die, to raise a voice for the maintenance of its defense, to assist in fostering its international friendships, and to stand guard over its principles and ideals. It is a big thing to offer any woman and as the full meaning of member ship in the Auxiliary is more widely understood the eligible women of Am erica are seeking it in ever-increasnig numbers. MRS.
