Sen. George Sees
High Tax Rates
All Next Year
WASHINGTON High tax rates
will continue through next year,
and even then tne United Stales
won't be living within its income
unless it whittles three major ex
pense items. Senator George iD
Ga i. the Senate's top tax man
stated this week.
He said the government has far
loo many employes with 3,000,000
on its payrolls, but that the major
savings will have to be made in
Army "and Navy spending.
Looking over the cuts of $050.
000.000 for the Navy and $1,000.
000.000 for the Army, recommend
ed by President Truman in his
budaet review, Senator George
"I don't know whether circum
stances will justify more reductions
in those two departments. I would
have to study the recommendations
of the military men more thor
oughly. "But those are the only two
places major savings can be made.
We can save a little by cutting
down on the number of federal
employes, but not enough."
Senator Elbert D. Thomas (D
Utah), chairman of the Senate Mili
tary Affairs Committee, said things
"have gone so well in the occupa
tion of Japan and Korea that more
than $1,000,000,000 can be saved in
the cost of occupying those coun
tries." Still more could be saved, he
said, if we could unify Germany.
"Desunity cost us a lot after the
last war and resulted in the rise of
Hitler," he said.

Attributes Many Escapes
From Prison to Weather
RALEIGH State Prison Direc
tor Clyde O. Robinson and Prison
Inspector Kyle Matthews attribute
the high number of escapes from
prison camps last month to a va
riety of causes.
They agree that one good reason
is the inability of the prison sys
tem to hire qualified men as re
placements for guards and camp
officers who leave for better pay
Then. Matthews says the depart
ment usually has one or two bad
months each year. "It just seems
that when one or two prisoners get
away, they hear about it in other
camps and decide to take off. too,"
Robinson thinks the warm weath
er in July was responsible for
some of the escapes, and he aLso
points out that recently road gangs
have been cutting right-of-way for
the Highway Department. This puts
the inclose to woods and swamps
into which they can disappear by
taking a few steps.
There were 61 escapes last
month, compared with 33 in June.
