Rumors Have No Place In Student Body Elections (An Editorial) It ls time that a halt was called to the whispering campaigns that have been carried on during the past few weeks in regard to the student body elections. Both candidates for student body president have asked that they might use the columns of the Dally Trojan to refute charges that have been made against them through subterranean channels. In both cases they have been refused on the ground that they must carry on their campaigns outside of the student paper. But ln fairness to both, we ask that the campus disregard the whispering campaign ln deciding how to vote. It ls unfair to Judge a man solely on rumor, because not only is the source of Information often unauthentic, but the man has no opportunity to defend himself. And ln fairness to both, we wlll answer editorially the charges and the rumors, not as we see them, but as each candidate would anwer them, were he given the opportunity. V Rumor No. 1—That Worth Bernard is a communist. Bernard is a registered Democrat, an organizer for the NRA speakers’ bureau, and has never attended a communist meeting. Captain Hynes of the red squad said Tuesday that his name had never been brought to his attention. Rumor No. 2—That Bob Haugh ls being run by a machine. Haugh maintains that he has made no promises, not even to Pete Caveney, his manager. His organization ts headed by a big group of fraternity and non-org leaders on the campus. Every candidate has a ‘‘machine," said Haugh last night, "and lf mine ls one, lt ls a representative one. (Continued on page two) WASHINGTON, May 10.—<U.P>— President Roosevelt's signature of a *417,000,000 tax bill tonight hiked the levies on coupon clipping classes and plugged holes through which J. P. Morgan and other rich men escaped income tax payments. The new law digs deeper into the strong boxes of the wealthy to help pay recovery taxes, but lightens the burden of the "little fellows" who file 90 per cent of income tax returns. , The new provisions are effective on this year’s Income, on which tax-| es will be due next March. Closing of the loopholes that enabled many of the wealthy legally to avoid heavy payments was ac- ' companled by announcement of At- | tomey-General Homer C. Cummings j that the government intended to j press Its Income tax avoidance cases against Thomas S. Lamont, Morgan partner, and former Mayor James J. Walker of New York, despite failure »< • <rr*n<i rnrr to sUDDOrt simi- lar charges against Andrew W. Mellon. The president, signing the tax bUl in the presence of Secretary of Treasury Henry Morgenthau, Jr., and congressional leaders, appeared well satisfied with all provisions save one. This ls the levy of three cents per pound on Philippine cocoanut oil. He believes this will place an unfair burden on the islands as they are struggling to right their industry and finances for Independence. The president soon will send congress a message about this tax, written Into the bill by farm interests to protect domestic vegetable oils against foreign competition. Mr. Roosevelt probably will ask congress to repeal the levy. The new law levies more heavily on the rich through higher surtaxes on large incomes, higher estate and gift taxes, taxes on personal holding companies, adjustment of reductions permitted for 1 oases, and i other wut. Bob Haugh Holds Election Meeting Oatherlng for a final meeting before the election today, supporters of Bob Haugh for the presidency of the Associated Students met yesterday aftemoon on the tennis courts of the Alpha Delta Pi house to dance to the music of Bob Miller and his orchestra. Opening the program of speeches, Pete Caveney, non-org and campaign manager for Haugh, spoke on the outlook for the campaign and replied to asserted charges which had been made against the candidate by luncheon speakers at campus residences. Fred Robinson, prominent non-org. told of his association with Haugh ever since he has entered the university and ln the Trojan Knight organization. Gene Ridings, non-org and varsity football man, gave a humorous speech in which he pledged hla sup-I port to the candidate. | Dale Hilton, editor of El Rodeo, ' and Phi Slgma Kappa, spoke ln behalf of Haugh, stating that he was t a personal friend of the candidate, In closing the speeches.
