HAPPY DAYS HERE AGAIN?
To the Editor:
I note with much interest one
of the editorials in today's Daily

Life," in which it is shown that
in recent years the academic side

mized in favor of the business
side; i. e., the satisfying of the

I was astounded, to say the least
that this was admitted finally

Receipts of income taxes at the
Treasury department indicate that
$210,000,000 more than was collect-
ed at the same time last year have
been turned into the Treasury, but
the exact significance of this in-
crease is not clear. One of the
chief reasons why this fact cannot
be accepted at its face value as
indicating that the country is more
prosperous this year is shown by,
the fact that internal revenue col-s
lectors have been working on Sun-
days and at night in order to com-
plete their work sooner.
The increased business of cor-
porations has apparently more
than offset the reduction of 1 per
cent in their rate, and it is be-
lieved in many quarters that the
passage of the tariff act would
clear up any uncertainty as to
whether this reduction will be ex-
tended to 1930. If business and in-
dustry is furnished the needed im-
petus provided by a higher tariff,
the government can probably be
assured of sufficient income at the
reduced rate.
it is difficult to believe that the
increase in tax receipts can indi-
cate the actual condition of the
country, for the recent depression
is almost certain to have farther
reaching effects than those appar-
ent during the month of the stock
market crashes. The tremendous
over-inflation resulting from an
optimism far above what the situ-
ation really should have indicated
cannot be so easily forgotten, but
might change into a pessimism
equally distant from the adtual
picture.
The increase in income tax re-
ceipts is most encouraging, but the
question is. Just what does it
mean?

BIRD IN HAND.
The humanitarian attitude of
the Theatre is proved quite sub-
stantially by its willingness to grant
merit and supreme praise to trivi-
ality. The fable in Bird in Hand
-young love riding over parental
and class distinctions-is anything
but original. The treatment -
aside from a certain facility, is not
brilliance, in Drinkwater's writing
-is absolutely ordinary and prey
dictable throughout. The merri-
ment is all peculiarly vacuous, the.
sentiment strictly the stock thing,
Yet production, completely real-
izing and translating everything in
the play and a lot besides, makes
sentiment acceptable. The whole
second act of Bird in Hand is mere-
ly vaudeville-trading on the stock
ridiculousity of men in pajamas in
a somewhat original fashion. Yet
when robustly done with a con-
summate art of farce by the Eng- 1
lish cast it provides entirely .justi-
flable delight. Bird in Hand is a!
perfect example of good sentimen-
tal comedy-in almost every age
