Lately there has arisen a widespread out- cry a,ginst the steady increase of taxe, outcry has its roots in the general feeling Federal, State and local. We think that that our governmental units arO not giv- ing us value received for the taxes we pay. Almost all of our government units have been taxing, borrowing and spending b@ond the means of the people to pay. Taxes are remaining unpaid. That causes forced sales of property and destroys values. Nothing but drastic retrenchment can possibly restore our ,government un- its to financial health. And one way to re- trench--the best )ossible way as we see it --is to stop spending money on fads, on LAKE FORK Mr. and Mrs. William Koehler and Mrs. Orville Shraxter were shoppers in Decatur Thursday.

We object to gov- ernment in business, and yet we spend more money on governmental promotion and regulation of business than any coun- try in the world except Russia. We talk loudly about the vast expenditures for armaments in Europe, and yet we spend more on armaments than any country in peace time in the world's history. Like- wise, we spend more than any other coun- try in the attempt to enforce the laws, and at the same time w have more crime of all kinds than any other nation. If the editor of this paper knew the per-! fect answer to all the problems of overn-! ment and finance, he would not be running this paper, but might be running the gov- ernment.
