In case the fair grounds should ever be for sale, it is pretty evident that the price would be prohibitive for it to be .considered for school purposes or athletic field site. It occurs to-us that most public facilities 'including 'School facilities are developed either by a crash program when urgently needed or by long range planning, or some times by a combination. The long range planning procedure has "some merit 1 - in saving cost and in providing more satisfactory facilities. The current discussion centers around further planning for. use of the school-owned site In the southeast part of town possible grading or levelling, possible development , of an area which could be usea for practice of athletic games and physica' education. activities. Personnel on .the ' coaching staff and playground commission advise thsrt there would be immediate use .of such facilities for physical education, practice field and playground activities.

No matter how you voted, these facts on gasoline taxes are important to you: • Everywhere in Iowa, car owners pay $1.00 tax on every 10 gallons of gasoline they buy! • Gasoline taxes across the -nation amount to a 50% sales tax—and that's five times as high as the tax rate on luxuries like diamonds and mink-coats! „ • Since World War II, there have been three increases in the Federal gasoline tax alone. This brought the Federal tax to 4 cents a gallon, in addition to the State tax of 6 cents a gallon! • In the last ten years gasoline taxes have skyrocketed 51% — yet the price of gasoline itself has risen only 5.5% during the same period! • Each year the average motor vehicle owner in this state pays $84 lor gasoline taxes alone. That's just a few dollars less than the average wepk's pay for most people! HIGHWAYS AND GASOLINE TAXES Your gasoline retailer, naturally, favors construction of the roads that the motoring public needs. He believes in fair and reasonable taxation for this purpose but feels that taxes on gasoline have now reached unreasonably high levels. He also believes that all special taxes on the motorist should be used only for highway purposes. Yet last year, out of every automobile tax dollar collected by the Federal Government from highway users, more than 40 cents went for non-highway purposes. If these automotive tax revenues were dedicated for highway purposes, there would be no need for the latest increase in the federal gasoline tax. The Gasoline You BUY Is Taxed Too HIGH!
