BIGGER THAN ECONOMICS <
(New York "Times) *
Dr. Hjalmiar Schacht, head of the
Germjan ReiChbank,, wihb is now in
tills country to discus s economics
with President Roosevelt, made a
straight-from-the-shoulder radio talk
on landing in New York. He VSgor
ously brought to the attention of the
American public the existence of
three basic truths, of which the sec
ond is as follows:
"Many people are trying to con
vince you that the present economic
crisis is based on economic reasons.
Don't you believe them. Our crisis
as a moral one. Economic -.vellVoe
ing will only return if a fair chance
is given to every one. Instead, all
forces are used to keep down the de
feated. He is as^ed’“to pay but not
allowed to earn.”
This is a statement of principles so
wise, so courageous and so humane
that we must take it to apply in all
things, not only to international bp
havior i*ut to the conduct of domes
tic affairs exerywhere. Wherever
there is a victorious political party
that is tempted to use violence in or
der to keep down the defeated side;
ivherever there is a government which
6ets out to deprive a part of its po
pulate nos the elementary right to
earn a living; wherever .there is a
regime that i s inclined Jto forget .that
the economic well-being. of a. nation
-depends on a fair chance for every
citizen; wherever, in short, there.'miay
be in power a group of men, who ..will
no tand ca'nnot !3£e that, ] economic

words of'our distinguished German
visitor ought to be read and taken to

NOT ALL OVER.
(Burlington Times-News.)
The state legislature is still toying
with the sales tax, unable to agree on
certain provisions and amendments
thereto. One of the provisions of the
bill as originally passed that was fav
ored by the merchanfs of the state
was the one providing that it should
be mandatory that the merchant pass
along the tax to the customer. That
provision has been taken out of the
bill on the ground that it would thus
render the whole act unconstitutional.
Now comes the Charlotte Observer
with the suggestion that perhaps the
bill is rendered unconstitutional by
ihe ommission of this provision. Says
the Observer:
The revenue bill, relating to the
~ales tax, originally had a clause in
it making it mandatory upon the mer
chants to pass the tax along—in other
words, compelling the buyer to pay!
the tax.
The clause has been stricken out of
the bill as passed, leaving the sellers
without recourse in the event the
buyer does not voluntarily pay the
tax.
That, however, is not the only vic
ious phase of the measure.
No provision is made in the bill by
which any tax on sales which will not
carry the lowest passible levy, that
Is as much as one cent, can be col
lected at- all.
Obviously, in order to make any col
lection of revenue by applying the
three per cent tax against an article
sold, that article must be priced as
high as thirty-three cents. There is
no monetary denomination current
with which the tax can be paid or
collected on any article sold which is
priced under that figure.
It seems wise that the Legislature
should have made some provision to
collect taxes on the vast volume of
merchandise sold at prices under the
level at which a three per cent tax
can produce revenue.
That could have been done by issu
ing stamps of denomination less than
one cent, and the purchaser, compell
ed to buy such stamps when he was
buying articles that would stand as
much as a one-cent tax.
In the absence, however, of any
such provision in the law and the fail
ure on the part of the legislature to
authorize the use of stamps, even of
this small denomination, «*evi :
able that the sellez-s must pay all the
taxes instead at" *****
\ / > \s *
L, I# ; v
the case of all sales of articles priced,
under the lowest possible figure.
That might not seem to be much of
an item, but as a matter of fact con
servative estimates are that 30 per
cent of all sales of goods in North
Carolina are under this thirty-three
cent mark, which is the equivalent
of saying, therefore, that nearly a
third of all. the revenue which the
state expects to collect by means of Us
sales tax must,-unavoidably and with
out recourse, be made by the mer
chants who have been given no fa
cilities by which they collect from
the buyers this tax on the smaller
priced goods.
In dollars and cents, if this esti
mate pans out, the merchants will pay
out of their own pockets approxi
mately a third of the suppose $9,000,000
the state expects to collect from this
source.
The clause making it mandatory up
on the merchants to pass the tax on
to the consumers was taken out of the
bill .according to statements of the
members of the conference commit
tee because it could not stand the
constitutional test.
It naturally wondered if the failure
of the Legislature to provide facilities
for the merchants to collect the taxes
does not of itself involve further un
constitutionality.
By the omission, the merchants are
not only compelled to pay taxes for
the privilege of doing business, but
they must now pay the tax itself on
the articles which they‘sell, a double
forfn of taxation which in numerous
cases will,, no doubt amount to con
fiscation.

Conferees on the Muscle Shoals-
Tennessee Valley bill, most of their
agreement done yesterday, sought to
complete the task by evening.
The Senate Interstate Commerce
Committee concluded hearings on the
administration railroad reorganiza
tion bill, and decided to begin exe
cutive session on the many proposed
amendments next Tuesday.
Afte.r passing the appropriations
bill ,the House took up a resolution
by Representative Cirovitch, Demo
crat, New York to investigate the
moving picture industry which was
defeated.
Members charged all Cirovitch want
ed was a free trip to Hollywood to
have his picture taken with the movie
actresses, infuriating the New Yorker,
who insisted President Roosevelt ap
proved of the enterprise.
Senate To Accept
9th Month Permit
(Continued from Page One.)
conviction that a majority would not
accept the bill as passed by the House
that the Senate decided to send it to
conference, where it could be studied
more carefully and the objectionable
amndments eliminated.
It is regarded as almost certain
that the Senate conferees will insist
upon the removal of the amendment
by Representative O’Berry, of Wayne
which specifies that no county or dis
trict that is in default may levy any
suppkjmenftjai taxes for wth ter the
eight month school term or for a
ninth month. This amendment was
bitterly opposed in the House by the
representatives from the larger cities
and coutnies that either were affected
by it or might be affected by it later,
on the contention that either a real
or technical default on the part of a
city or county should not prohibit
it from levying taxes for the adequate
support of its school system. But a
small majority held with O’Berry that
no county or city that could not meet
its obligations should be permitted to
levy any supplementary taxes for
schools, and the amendment was
adopted.
The only cities now in default on
any of their obligations, and which
would be barred by the O'Berry
amendment from levying supplemen
tal taxes, are Asheville, Greensboro,
High Point, Raleigh Salisbury Gas
tonia and Hendersonville, according
to the Local Government Commission,
although it is not certain that Greens
boro would be barred by the amend,

But there are something like 35
counties that are in default, and a
good many cities and towns so near
to it that they can hardly be sure
from one month to the nexL how long
they will be able to keep from de
faulting. As a result, almost all the
House and Senate members from the
larger cities and counties that want
to levy supplemental taxes for either
the eight months school term or for
a ninth month, do not like the O’Berry
amendment. It i s believed that the
senate conferees will insist upon its

count scale extending up to March

The Senate also voted to author

to allow Cherokee Indian delinquents
