Unless new forms of (axes are adopted, the burden will eventually fall upon the property owners. The gravity of relief problems decreases, of course, as general business conditions improve. The situation today is much butler Minn i( was six years ago. Hut it is improbable that the problem will ever vanish entirely. NO Immunity American cities stolidly refuse: to admit that relief is here to st«y. In a nmall and inoffensive way, relief has always been administered in lliis country. Most people didn't even know about it before 1!)2,<). Jt was generally believed that if anyone was so unfortunate as lo be without funds, fate, in the form of a benevolent welfare agency' or a wealthy distant cousin, would be on hand (o supply soup and things until the passed. While municipal relief was" not. exactly managed out of Ihn pully cash till, its inroads on the financial opera- lions \\erc usually slight enough to be overlooked by Ihe general public. The money was taken from the normal tax sources' and .scarcely ever became too severe a burden for (he cit.y. Times have changed. The No. 1 headache for practically every councilman in every city during the past 10 years has been relief. The same depression that brought relief clients pounding at nklermanic doors in unprecedented numbers also made it difficult for property owners In settle up their tax accounts. Since l!KiO, mdst city governments have been ab- iioirmilly occupied with figuring out means of. .'making budgets strefch to accommodate the now relief cosis. In most cases, slates and the icdeual government helped. PWA and WPA, along \viili Iheir "(ircdcccssors, provided for some of the indigcnls; but oven agencies had (o be supported' partially by community funds. Pew cities have conceded that relief is to be a permanent accoutrement to municipal financing. Relief co.sls arc calculated from year to year, with funds being earmarked out of the regular budget. Sometimes the money doesn't quite stretch, and year-end crises result. With a few exceptions, all the funds, used to pay for municipal' relief, are coming from the same sources that were drawn upon before relief became a problem. Four cities— N CW York, San Francisco, Grand Rapids, Midi., im \ j,>j e> Pa— have developed new taxes to take care of relief, New York, last year' ['"•"iced 85 per cent of its relki Hn-ough current revenues from uigaret sales, business, utility and conduit lax- ex.
