War Bond Buying
By CHARLES P. STEWART
(Central Press Columnist)
TREASURY Secretary Henry
Morgenthau, Jr., has developed,
since the war began, a streak of
liberality that's a surprise to his
There's a perhaps natural ten
dency on the part of considerable
national officialdom to meet the
emergency by the adoption of
some pretty dictatorial policies,
It isn't an inconsistency, either,
among officeholders who , get into
positions of authority' as outstand
ing friends of the "peepul," and
undoubtedly mean to be so. It is
rather notorious, in fact, that that
kind of statesmen, are historically
inclined to boss folk around very
peremptorily when they encounter
Secretary Morgenthau's a New
Dealer, of course, or he wouldn't be
holding down his present job, but
he's generally been regarded, un
til lately, as an individual of the
sort addicted to MAKE other folk
tain pens, flashlights, jelectric
razors, cash registers and baking
pans. Designs of glass containers
were restricted to existing mold
equipment. The board said this
standardization would increase
production of such containers by
30 per cent and help meet a pos
Bible tin can shortage. Grinding
of cocoa beans during the rest of
May and June was restricted to
70 per cent of the amounts ground

the most Valuable variety.
From the very nature of his cab
inent position, he wants all the
money he can get. Yet he's mod
erate in his demands, for higher
taxation. He not only needs the

theory that squeezing the public as
vigorously as it can stand will dis

The Bond Campaign
Well, plux taxation, there's been
a demand for a campaign to sell
bonds, up to 10 per cent of every
body's income, less for the sake of
the dough than for the purpose of
tying it up so completely that
bond-buyers will have precious lit
tle left to spend for anything else.
Henry's indorsed the bond-buying
proposition in Drinrinln hut
nie'a opposed making it compulsory.
xiis contention is that, over
whelmingly, the average American
is a patriotic chap, whose invest
ment will EXCEED 10 per cent, if
he can make it, provided, he's
merely APPEALED to, but wholl
be sore if it's a matter of compul
sion, and, anyway, itU stop at 10
per cent; nor will it be that much

Henry's notion by his treasury
It was an unexpected angle for
a multi-milionaire like Henrv
Morgenthau to head in from. He
surprised quite a lot of his cabinet
fellow-members and senators and
representatives by doing it.
Henry isn't a bue for wace-
On that subject he's rather in a
class with William Green of the
A, F. of L., and Phil Murray of the
C. I. O. Who'd have thought it, in

cedents! Bankers and financiers!

It war bond buying doesn't de
liver the goods, on a voluntary
basis, Henry says hell come out
for compulsion by about next Jul v.
but he wants to give it a trial, be
cause his judgment is that itU
yield better results, besides being
more satisfactory to the Victims,
than the other method.
