Continuing his fight for legisla-
tion to • ke the profits out of war,
Senator Josh !.••• (D. Okla.) re-
introduced In the Senate last week
his bill to draft wealth as well as
men in ejvent of war
Th. hill provides for a one per
cent int« rest rat< on the money
borrow-i by the government un-
der a sv stem of mandatory loans.
The proportion of each man's
wealth subject to loan would be
graduated on a basis similar to
the Income tax.
Senator I-e. Introduced the same
measure in the Senate last year.
It was reported favorably by the
Military Affair Committee, but ac-
tion \sf.s not taken on the floor
of the Senate.
Speaking bct'or th« Senate «it
a time when that body was dis-
cussing th.* important problem of
national defense, the Senator
pointed out last week that pass-
age of such a bill would strength-
en this nation's defense because
of the psychological effect It would
have on other nations.
"It would have a tremendous
ffeet upon any ambitious nations.
They would pause before declar-
ing war upon the United States
because they would look upon
America as a sleeping giant that
would rls« to strength upon elc-
claration of *ar. not only in man-
power but also In financial
pow < r."
The Oklahoma, senator pointed
out that it is as logical to draft
wealth an It ts to draft men. "Why
have a voluntary system for rais-
ing meney and a compulsory sys-
tem lor raising men?" he asked.
E\ery ex-service e.rganization
he explained, has gone on record

wealth and to take the profits out
