Washington, O. C.—It was apparent
after the treaty with Germany ha*d
been before the Senate a few days
that moat of the members of that
august body intended to make speech
es on the aubject. The talk was in
terminable, and at last these meas
ures were hastily sidetracked in favor
of the revenue bill.
The Administration is trying to
force through the tax bill as speedily
as possible, but members of the far
mer bloc strenuously object to many
of the provisions of the' Fordney-Pen
rose measure and, it is beginning to
look as if material changes will have
to be made in it.
Progressive Republicans are flirting
with the Democrats in an effort to
compel the Administration to increaae
the higher surtax rates, to lower the
rates on smaller Incomes, to retain
the tax on capital stock, to repeal the
transportation taxes, and to increase
the Inheritance tax. If these changes
are made the revenue bill will be
greatly Improved, but Administration
loaders are opposed to any amend
mat in their program and It threat
no to split the Republican majority
li the Senate.
8eaator Smoot is attempting to take
advantage of the situation by offering
a three per cent manufacturers' sales
tax as a substitute for the Fordaey
Penrose hill. He has strong support

An, attempt was made to have the
House ways and means committer re

but after sounding out Republican

imous vote. Lorinier was unseated
the Senate a few years ago (or frauds
less flagrant, but the war has broker
down our former standards and ni
popular protest is made when elec
tions degenerate into auctions.
The unemployment conference is
still in session, but as yet it has done
little except to "pass tlie buck" tu
governors, mayors and other local
authorities by asking them to provide
emergency work for the jobless. The
conference also recommended that
those who have Jobs divide them with
those who haven't. This principle
might be termed the communization
of Jobs, and, If it had been proposed
by Lenine or Trotzky, would be con
sidered pretty radical. One former
service man who was Jobless and
hungry said that if Jobs were to be
divided. It ought to be equally sound
logic to divide property and he aug
gested starting with the swollen for
tunes of the war profiteers.
Of course the millionaires who
compose a majority of the members
of the conference on unemployment
could not be expected to subscribe to
any such extension of the principle
which they applied to Jobs. The con
ference was carefully hand-picked by
Secretary Hoover and there is no pos
sibility that its members will look be
neath the surface to Investigate the
real causes of unemployment nor rec
ommend the obvious remedies. That
would disturb the existing order and
both Harding and Hoover made it per
fectly plain at the beginning that "our
temple needs no rebuilding."
Henry P. Fletcher, under secretary
of state, got chummy with a congress
man the other day and told him that
Mexico would not be recognized by
the United States unless she changed
her land laws to conform with the
wishes of American plutocracy.
It seems that certain Americans
have huge holdings in Mexico which
they obtained by questionable meth
ods and the Mexicans are taking these
over by the right of eminent domaic
aad paying the Americans the exact
valuation that they set upon them for
taxation purposes. This has made

to a sordid effort to further the in

syndicate at the expense of our al

•How is this being accomplished?
The situation is clear, the process
is simple.

a whirlwind of indignation. Presi
dent Harding announces that he is
opposed to any such course, but de
mands that Congress without delay
specifically confer upon Secretary
Mellon full power to privately settle
these obligations upon any terms he
may deem advisabe. And Secretary
.Mellon has personally appeared be
fore the Ways and Means'Committee
demanding immediate action.
Coincident with this demand
comes a suggestion from the Bank
ing Group (to which Secretary Mel
Ion formerly belonged) that a con
current conference with the Euro
pean delegates be held, while the
Disarmament Conference is in ses
sion. to adjust the financial situation.
Every angle of the situation
bristles with deceit and secret di
plomacy. every indication foiiti to
a betrayal of the Just demands of the
American public who "paid until it
hurt" to assist our Allies in their ex

danger of being told that the money

Huron is making elaborate pre
parations for the reception and en
tertainment of all delegates to the
convention. Realizing the extreme
importance cf this gathering, the cit
izens and the civic and commercial
associations of Huron are making
special proviisou with a view to the
comfort of the teacher deleg-.tes.
Officials of the South Dakota Edu
cational Association in preliminary
announcements state that the speak
ers for this year are of exceptional
merit and repuation. Huron, itself,
through the Commercial €lub, is pre
paring a progarm of entertainment
for its visitors -that will make every
one of them feel that their time was
enjoyably as well as profitably spent
in Huron.
Indications are that the attendance
will be unusually large. This is due
to the interesting program and also,
in a measure, to the central location
of Huron, making It easily accessible
from every part of South Dakota.
Many County Superintendents have
already indicated their intention of
going to Huron and have made plans
for their delegation of teachers to
attend what will be the greatest
event of the year.
