Our Country 5-" Right or Wrong
THIS WON'T WASH
John B. Dunlap, internal revenue commis-
sioner (the man who wrote you that nice letter
about being extremely careful with your income
tax return), recently told congress that the gov-
ernment hasn't lost a penny in tax receipts thru
the misdeeds of its collectors.
This seems a bit hard to swallow, if you look
back at the box score:
Six out of 64 collectors were fired or quit un-
Forty-six other internal revenue employes fired
Chief Counsel Charles Oliphant resigned un-
Asistant Attorney General T. Lamar Caudle,
in charge of tax prosecutions, fired by your friend
(he ain't ours). President Truman.
Why, all these sudden separations? The record
is one of bribery, extortion and abuse of official
influence. If a collector was bribed to overlook
tax evasion, then jie government did not get
what was due. If he shook down a tax-dodger
who feared prosecution, the government did not
get what was due. And in every such instance.
the iydtim was the honest taxpayer lilk you a~d
Mr. Dunlap had indicated that he had little
notion of what his collectors were doing. This
seems an unfortunate time for him to discover
that he does know .unless he is very sure
of the Newbold Morris whitewall.
This remarkable statement of Mr. Dunlap's
was made while he and his boss, Treasury Sec-
retary John Snyder, were asking for $52,000,000
more to run the bureau next year. He pointed
out that he needed 7,439 more employes for the
anticipated job of collecting seventy billions.
The cost figures out, he said, at 44/100 of 1%.
We would like to think that the tax gatherers
are now as pure as this famous fraction suggests.
MAKE IT NATIONWIDE
Some time ago the state of New York passed
what is known as the "Feinberg Law," prohibit-
ing employment in the public schools of people
who advocate the overthrow of the government
by force and violence. The law was obviously
aimed at teachers who are communists or party-
line followers. However, a great hue and cry was
raised to the effect that the law violated the con-
stitutional guarantee of free speech, and the mat-
ter was taken into the courts. Now the supreme
court has ended the legal controversy by declar-
ing the law constitutional.
It is difficult to see how any thinking person
with the interests of a free America at heart can
do other than enthusiastically applaud this ver-
dict. One of the primary goals of communism is
the utter destruction of free speech and all the
rest of the basic freedoms--as witness Poland,
Czechoslovakia and the other Iron Curtain coun-
tries, no less than the Soviet Union itself. A com-
munist is the slave of his ideology. Communist
doctrine holds that any lie or deception is both
justified and necessary if it will advance the end
of world cornmunismrn-which means world en-
slavement. That go's for the communist teacher
as well as any follower of Marx, Lenin and Sta-
lin. And the communist teacher is the most dan-
gerous of all-for he poisons and betrays un-
formed minds which caiinot tell a subtle lie
from a profound truth.
Every state should have a law on the Fein-
berg model. Communism in the schools must be
ruthlessly stamped out.
The political coincidence of the year is re-
ported from Murphysboro, 11. where presiden-
tial aspirants Taft and Stassen a load of bulls
arid'fi. e toiis of corn con merged sniul.ianeously
on the courthouse square,, causing a traffic jam
and 30 minutes of oratory,' Mr. Taft's from the
courthouse and Mr. Stassen's from the local

Holland Asks State To
Back Senator Russell
Senator Spessard L. Holland, in
Miami Tuesday, said that Florida
should stand with most Southern
states behind the candidacy of Sen-
ator Richard B. Russell of Georgia
for the presidency.
Holland said "the South has a jo'b
to do for the nation because it is
the last place in the nation that
doesn't have to play up to minority
blocs and shape up our thinking so
we won't alienate some redhot
bunch of liberals.
"We have a lot at stake in stand-
ing with the rest of the South and
insisting on the moderate kind of
things we have always stood for."

a copy of the charges at least 18

such an attack, the statement won't
