A BIRTHDAY PARTY
The Socialists of Praha C.
Y. O. honored Father Leo Pe-
aek, the director of the Sod-
ality, with a Birthday Party
on the night of JanuaA 6 in
the parish hall.
The hall was decorated
with blue and pink crepe pa-
per and the tables formed a
T. When Leo entered the hall
all the Sodalists sang “Happy
Birthday." A beautiful white
cake with blue candles was
placed before him.
Lunch was served, and when
all were through eating the
students of St. John Semiary,
Laddie Jasek and Edward Bily
made a nice speech. The gift
from the Sodality was given
to Father by Edward Bily.
Games and music were
played later in the evening.
The guests at the party
were Jerry Kalina, George
Jasek, Adolph Masek, John-
nie Stryk, Harlen Knezek,
Joe Stryk, Joe Lala, Valvac
Stryk, and Jerome Kristynik.
Some of these boys have re-
ceived discharge and some are
spending furlough at home.

From "V” to “E’
The indicator that points to pri-
mary objectives on Uncle Sam's dial
moved, August 12, from Victory to
Employment. Correctly this na-
tion's first aim from December 7
1941, to V-J Day was to win the war
and save the world’s free peoples
from despotic rule; worth all it cost
in b^ood, sweat and tears. Now
that's finished, and the new primary
objective is to hold what’s bee:
Damages have been fearful. Some
never can be repaired; some ca”
There are twisted minds and bro
ken hearts, wounds to heal an
debts to pay. Those losses that ca'
be won back will demand muc'
time and patience. By their ver>
nature, they are deferred. But un
employment is another aggressivt
enemy, not to be put off. We pro
vide work now or lose what our
young men bought with their live.
Something to Avoid
Mass unemployment in this coun
try might easily start n revolutim
among industrial workers th
would overthrow the republic an
destroy our very American way i
life. It is the one catastrophe t
be feared by the whole people c
America. War’s end touched n.
much talk about post-war legisla
Uon but all of It is relatively un
important except what has to i'
with gainful employment.
Legislative acts that mercl'
promise work to service men ar
nothing but emotional brainstorm
Jobs have to pay thqir own way 1
be worth having. Since 15,000 me-
will lay down arms every day l
14 months, one of three things mu:
happen; (1) Private industf-y mu:
expand and make room for them
(2) Government will make a fci
WPA for them or (3) Want will brin
Good Tax Laws First
A hungry and outraged people
rush mob-like to dictatorship. An
army-size WPA marches with slave
like steps to the same destination
Well paid jobs in private industrj
with opportunity for improvement
and advancement constitute the only
work fit for a free people. It is the
only solution worthy of America's
clean record. Industry roust expand
and make jobs. It is the only way
to remain free.
Only one thing stands In the wav
—faxes/ Expanding industry,
enough to make the needed jobs,
calls for Investments which (same
as Jobs) have to pay. Today's taxes,
however, make it impossible to find
a paying investment that will make
Jobs. The tax laws were all right
in 1940 when they were passed to
take the profit out of war. Now they
threaten to ruin our future by tak-
ing the prosperity out of peace.
A Simple Tax Plan
It la my conviction that corpora-’
tion taxes nnd standard individual
taxes should be levied at the same
rate. 1 think the structure should
b« high enough to meet the require-
ments of the proposed budget with-
out having any surtaxes higher than
50%. For an Investor to pay out
more than half his income in taxes
will discourage large investments—
the very kind needed.
With a few specific exceptions I
oppose excise taxes and consider it
Wrong in principle to tax distributed
Income of corporationa more than
once. Excess profits taxes should
bo eliminated immediately. A fair
tax policy, and certainly an expedi-
ent one, will encourage capital in-
vestments for profit In going con-
cerns rather than In government
bond*. We want Iks right foxes for
Iha moat jolt.
