HOOPER & HOOPER Puoushers LEE HOOPER - Editor One Year In Pinal County 11.60 One Year, Outside Pinal County - 62.00 RESEARCH IN BANKING One recent development of great importance in the banking business is the increased interest shown by bank officials in research. No longer do progressive bankers confine their attention to their own little locality they have come to realize that national conditions are a far more vital long term factor than local conditions. As J. H. Riddle, economist of the Bankers Trust Co., said some time ago, “The issue betore each banker is broader than the mere welfare of his own institution. If we have learned anything from the depression it is the depend ence of every bank upon the soundness of the entire ciedit structure. Credit extended in Pennsylvania or New York may have repercussions in Texas or California, and vice versa. If credit is granted excessively or unwisely in one section, the whole system suffers ... To what extent will it prove necessary to remodel our banking structure and to what extent are we willing to give up our prejudices in the interest of a sounder and stronger banking system? The savings of the people are too important to be entrust ed to any except those completely qualified in character and training.” This very frank statement goes a long way toward exploding the common fallacy that bankers as a group are opposed to all change and progress, and simply want to sit tight on bulging money bags. Every banker worthy of his salt is eager to make sound investments—to build up his town, his state and his nation. At the same time, he fully realizes his vast, inescapable obligations to his de positors. It is their money he manages—not his. And the stimulated interest banking is showing in scientific re search, promises to still further better the service it offers our country, which is vital to all industrial progress, and to a more prosperous nation. o IT SMELLS BAD The unpleasant odor that has surrounded relief activities in many states has at last reached the sensitive nose of Congress. As Newsweek phrased it recently, “the uproarious House began a wholesale overhauling of the entire relief system.” First step in this overhauling was to cut the proposed appropriation of 5875.000.000 to be spent up to June 30 by the WPA to 5725.000.000. Then the House tacked on a number of salutary amendments to the bill, including strictures denying WPA relief payment to aliens, denying WPA money to any person attempting to influence the political opinion of another, and making it illegal for a WPA supervisor to bring political pressure on those be neath him. It is a significant fact that not far from half the Democrats in the House, as well as the majority of Republicans, supported these measures to cleanse and make more economical the handling of relief. There is ample evidence to support the statement that the public has become sickened of too much politics in relief administration. It feels that maximum economy is essential if the business of providing for the jobless isn’t to bankrupt those who still have jobs. It is believed by persons in close touch with condi tions, that untold millions of dollars could be saved an nually simply by divorcing relief from politics, waste, ex cessive bureaucracy and red tape—without reducing the scale of living of the relief beneficiary. Here is one place where the tremendous tax drain on the national income can be lessened. Congress is to be congratulated for start ing to fumigate and sweeten the odor around relief activities. But don’t stop there—cut deeper. AIMING AT THE “LITTLE FELLOW” It is reported that there is a growing belief among Congressmen that the revenue derived from the income tax must be increased. It is also reported that Treasury officials are extremely dubious as to the possibility of raising any substantial additional amount of revenue by “soaking the rich” further. Big individual incomes are already subject to surtaxes ranging up to 80 per cent, and the point of diminishing returns has been reached. Therefore, it is argued, additional income tax must be raised by increasing the levies on persons in the lower and middle tax brackets—and by dropping those brackets so as to reach income levels -which are now exempt from direct taxation. If this comes to pass—and it is obvious, if we con tinue to spend two dollars for every dollar we take in, that tax revenue must be upped—those citizens who have taken small interest in government fiscal policy, on the theory that the rich must pay the bills, will be due for the rudest sort of an awakening. The fact of the matter is that today the rich could pay but a small part of taxes required even if their total incomes were confiscated. The great bulk must be paid by ordinary citizens, through in direct, hidden taxes which constitute part of the cost of everything we buy and use. But relatively few of us seem to realize that—and it is that blindness to fact which has created our almost criminal indifference toward the tax and debt policies of our government. Reducing income tax exemptions and increasing the levies in the middle and lower brackets would bring home hard to almost every citizen the tremendous, personal interest he has in ihe financial conduct of government. It would show him once and for all that economical, efficient government means more dollars in his pocket—and that wasteful, inefficient government means fewer dollars in his pocket. We’re nearing the cross-roads in fiscal policy now. Either the cost of government will be cut—or taxes will continue to rise. And if the latter happens, only the “little fellow” is left to pay the bill—the “"big fel low” is being bled white now. o THE LABOR RELATIONS ACT It is refreshing to see that certain progressive labor , groups, some affiliates of the American Federa . tion of Labor, are urging reasonable modification and , revision of the National Labor Relations Act. Farsighted labor leaders are the first to recognize I that the cause of honest unionism is harmed, not served, by extremist legislation which is predicated on the prin ciple that labor must be favored at every turn, and the . employer always penalized. The Labor Relations Act, at , least as construed by the Labor Board, puts almost no re strictions on the activities of labor—and hogties the em ployer to the extent that he has almost no rights at all when controversies arise. Dispassionate and fair revision of the Act is absolute ly essential to the maintenance of peaceful industrial relations—and to the welfare of legitimate unionism. REPEAL THE PHOTOGRAPHERS LAW A petition before the state legislature asking for the repeal of the state law authorizing a state board of photo graphic examiners merits the earnest and impassioned in terest of the legislators and the public. Bound up in this petition is the right of any American citizen to earn a liveli hood without taking an examination and paying for the privilege of going to work in a field of activity where neither the health or public safety is concerned. By no stretch of the imagination is the public health or safety concerned in the work of photographers. Yet here in Arizona a photographer who had worked in Ari zona for 24 years has now found that if he allows his wife to help him in his work, she is liable to a term in jail, unless she takes an examination and pays $25 for a state license. Recently the camera club in Tucson held an exhibit. It was cautioned that it could not quote prices on various pictures exhibited because those who had taken the pictures had not been duly examined and licensed. Any person who offers for sale a snap shot is liable for a minimum sentence of 30 days in jail or a fine of SSO. Still more recently this inexcusable law reacted in a i most idiotic manner. The current issue of Harper’s Bazaar had a splendid illustrated article on Arizona giving the state some wonderful publicity. The magazine sent a man into the state to take the pictures. He was informed that if he developed and sold those pictures to the | magazine while in the state he would be liable for a jail sentence, or fine! Imagine a state or any government imposing such restrictions on persons seeking to go to work, seeking to earn a living. If the legislature can impose such require ments on those who want to enter the photographic field, it can likewise impose similar restrictions on grocery clerks, farmers, and every other activity under the sun. It is to be hoped that the present legislature will see the folly and the injustice of such legislation and repeal this obnoxious law which makes more difficult an effort for an indivdual to earn a living.—Arizona Daily Star. What Others Think COSMIC THINKING Dr. Ircadia Life is forever rich in new mean ings. If it were not so, true pro gress would become a myth. Our yesterday* are the raw material life uses to grind the destinies of ! our tomorrows. The molds of the social, economic and spiritual needs of our ancestors are no longer those of our present generation. If our industries were regimented back to the slow motion horse and buggy mode of transportation, eighty five percent of our mechan ized men would go insane. If our women were forced back to the spinning wheel, probably all of them would take to bootlegging, or worse. Real progress cannot thrive in a culture medium of stagnation. The magic of life calls for purality of form, renewal of its vitalizing cur rent in diversified channels, intensification of growth expres sion. It i» largely because of our in ability to recognize this evolution ary principle that we find ourselves every so often in the turmoil of international debacles. Men like Hitler and Mussolini, however sincere they might be in the idolizing of patriotic fervor, belong to the category of fanatics who, disdainfully or otherwise, refuse to pay tribute to the majesty of im mutable, universal laws. They are either unwilling or unable to see that the human race is being led by unconquerable cosmic decrees into a period of universal transi tion where reason will vanquish warlust and true brotherhood sur vive the sham love of a non too glorious civilization. THE COOUDGE EXAMINER Evolutionary decrees cannot be tampered with. The dictatorial j mind that falls back on armaments ; and war for engrossing or recon i struction of national prestige courts j an inevitable doom. Cosmic decrees ; are made by spiritual laws. Man's i limited genius cannot contain the i immensity of those laws. There- j fore he cannot control them. No sooner did the cunning of mortal mind formulate devices of sterility and contra-ception than mother nature countered with an intensive propaganda of twins, triplets and quintuplets. Ten years hence, triplets will be on the pro gram with ever increasing populari ty. Verily it is useless and futile to fight the dcrees of spiritual laws. Looking down from the heights of j a slowly maturing American j humanity upon the hysterical dis- J play of European warlust, it seems j that much of our anguish as to the safety of our own people here at home is unfounded. The sanguinary Spanish melodrama should set our minds at ease, giving us once more ample satisfaction about the ridicul ous vanity of all wars. It should teach us eagerness to cultivate a nobler spirit of solidarity, a keener passion for unprejudiced investi gation, socialogic, religious and scientific, a more fervent willing ness to march in joyous unision toward the not distant goal of ideal freedom and unmolested uni versal pursuit of happiness. It will take courage to uphold the banners of the new idealism, I know. It will require a courage a remote past cannot give us, be cause of the fiercer intensity of our restless passions and dreams. But that courage is ours for the taking. Every age had its Light and its Prophets. We have ours but know it not. Many of us still insist on riding in clanking, rattling, rench ing box cars of evolution all the while being convinced that un happiness is the result of greed and discord, and war s naught else but colossal melting pots of errors made by fools who actually seem to delight in and profiteer by the j i spilling 01 human uiood. The show must go on! Yes, we all know that. But if it must, let’s listen to what Life (the w'riter of the play) has to tejl. For Life is our truest friend, our staunchest comrad. Life is in love with us. It | never fooled us, it never will. We : forever and ever fool ourselves! o NOTICE FOR PUBLICATION United States Department of the ■ Interior, General Land Office at ; Phoenix, Arizona. February 11, 1939 !
