Psychopathic Musician Is
Apathetic In Defense Of
Self In Coming Trial
(By The Associated Press)
DETROIT, July 7 - P) - Merton
Ward Goodrich, psychopathic musi-
cian, and his limping wife, were re-
turned to Detroit today to answer
for the brutal crime he has confessed
the trunk murder of 11-year-old
Goodrich was hurried through the
Uion Station, placed in a patrol
wagon, and taken to police head-
quarters. He was in custody of De-
tective Harry Scher and Detective
Sergt. George R. Branton, the two
men who had sought Goodrich cease-
lessly during the long months in
which the on-time trap drummer was
pursued both by the police and his
own grisly visions.
Goodrich murmured something to
his wife as they posed for photo-
graphers. His sallow face was ex-
At headquarters he sat quietly
smoking as McCrea, Police Commis-
sioner Heinrich A. Pickert, Chief of
Detectives Fred W. Frahm and other
officials conferred on the first steps
to be taken.
In their confessions, both Good-
rich and his wife denied that Mrs,
Goodrich had any part in the mur-
der. Goodrich said he induced the
girl to come to his apartment on a
pretext of giving her some books. He
killed her, stuffed her body in a
trunk, he said, and persuaded his
wife to join him in fleeing by declar-
ing he had seriouslyinjured a musi-
cian in the band in which he played.
Says Wife Innocent
"I don't care what they do with
me," Goodrich told questioners. "I
am ready to go to the penitentiary. I
know I don't need a trial. But I
won't plead guilty until I know what
they are going to do with my wife.
If they file charges against her I'll
plead not guilty. I don't want her
bothered. She is innocent."
Goodrich said he would have given
himself up "if I hadn't been afraid
they'd accuse her of a lot of things.
She didn't have anything to do with
The prisoner was unshaven, the
stubble on his face and the circles
under his eyes gave him an un-
healthy look. His hands shook as he
DETROIT, July 7 - (A') - Frank
Gallaher came face to face today
with Merton Ward Goodrich, the man
who has confessed murdering Gal-
aher's daughter, Lillian, 11, in one
of the most brutal crimes in Michi-
Goodrich groaned and covered his
sallow face 'with his hands as Fred
W. Frahm, chief of detectives, said
"This is Mr. Gallaher."
Gallaher said nothing as he stared
at Goodrich for several minutes, mo-
tionless. Then he backed silently and
with stumbling steps out of the room.
"Crazy-looking guy," he said to a
man near him.
Gallaher again stood silently when
he was taken to see Mrs. Goodrich.
Mrs. Goodrich stared back at him
for a moment, and then wept.

CHICAGO, July 6 - () - Recom-
mendations for the formation of a
new political party were adopted by
the organization committee of the
third party "invitation" conference
A second recommendation adopted
was that a permanent committee be
named to select the date and site for
the first national convention of the
proposed third party.
Rep. Amlie (Prog.-Wis.), one of
the leaders who called the third
party conference, said his commit-
tee hoped to complete its recom-
mendations for submission to the
main body before its closing session.
Rep. Amlie said it was impossible
to predict how large a committee
would be appointed to call the na-
tional convention, but that he thought
it would include about 40 names of
persons active in the third party
movement. Their membership prob-
ably would represent all the 27 states
taking part in the present conference.
Some of the committee members
in discussing the report commented
that their report would undoubtedly
be accepted. "It is significant," one
stated, "that the conference as a
whole is more radical than commit-
tee members. If they make any
changes in our recommendations, it
will be to make the language even

NEW YORK - (R) - The Presi-
dent's intention of "encouraging a
wider distribution of wealth" through
graduated taiation is, economists
are saying, a historical change of
emphasis ii federal policies.
Although redistribution of wealth
in some measure is inherent in any
progressive taxation principle, they
say that previous taxation programs
using this method have emphasized
revenue as the chief object.
Speaking of his program, and the
benefits from the application of such
a philosophy of taxation, President
"By so doing, we shall progressively
lighten the tax burden of the average
taxpayer, and, incidentally, assist in
our approach to a balanced budget."
Civil War Income Taxes
Progressive taxation in the past
principally has, developed on the
theory of applying the burden where
it could best be borne and where the
greatest social benefits accrued. The
method, they say, has never been
applied on corporations excepting the
excess profits tax of the war years,
where levies were laid upon profits
above a certain degree.
The principle of income taxes was
first applied in the United States dur-
ing the Civil war, when levies were
made on incomes over $600. Al-
though held constitutional at that
time, the law was allowed to lapse,
and another income tax passed by
congress in the nineties was declared
unconstitutional in 1894.
A fiat one per cent tax was im-
posed on corporate profits for the first
time in the United States in 1909.
Ages Old In Principle
The progressive tax is not new in
principle, evidences of a progressive
produce tax having been found in
Athens six centuries before Christ,
and possibly one in Egypt one thou-
sand years earlier.
Its introduction in the nineteenth
century was strongly opposed in Eu-
rope and America, John Stuart Mill
calling it "graduated robbery" in
In 1912, Professor E. W. Taussig of
Harvard described it as based on the
ground that the existing social order
is not perfect and that taxation
should be one of the instruments for
The constitutional obstructions to
such a tax were removed in the United
States by the passage of the sixteenth
amendment, and by 1929 58 per cent
of the total federal revenue was de-
rived from the income and corpora-
tion profits tax.

impose a successful income tax in
1911, although Massachusetts, North
and South Carolina, New Hampshire,
Oklahoma, Delaware and Virginia
had unsuccessfuly tried it earlier.
So far as the national income that
a tax might redistribute is concerned,
the Brookings Institute, in "America's
Capacity to Consume," analyzed the
incomes of 1929, and ,reported that
40 per cent, or 20,000,000 persons were
receiving less than $1,000 a year;
more than 10 per cent, or about 5,-
000,000 persons received $50,0 or less.
In the higher income groups, theI
report showed that 19 per cent of
the people were receiving $2,000 and
above; 5 per cent, $4,000 and above;
and that 3.6 per cent, receiving $5,000
and above, accounted for 33.8 per cent
of the national income. Those re-
ceiving $10,000 and over were 1.3
per cent of the population, control-
ling 25.5 per cent of the national in-
come of $92,950,000,000.
