Choice of School Directors Will Mean Virtual Decision On Two Methods BERKELEY. April 25. Bpnds or direct tax? This Is the question being asked at meetings in all sec tions of Berkeley aa the campaign centering around the election of two members ot the board of edu cation and a special tax Issue on the ballot of May 6 is drawing to a close. , . Speaking at a meeting of the Buena Peralta Improvement club held at Jefferson school, Dr. Lou ise Hector, candidate for re-election on the' "pay as you go" plan, declared that the special tax plan as placed before) the voters of the city by four out of five members of the board of education would result In the raising of $220,000 per year to augment existing funds to tne extent ot $443,000 for build tng purposes. "I thoroughly understand and sympathize with the viewa xt (hose who have found tng burdens so heavy in Berkeley that they can not meet any inerease of any kind who are willing to make the best of what they have, being content to get along with whatever .build ing can be done with our present current revenue," said Dr. Hector. BONDS OR BCnOOI8? Continuing, aha said: "I have no patience, however, with those who are laying stress on the terrible needs', 'flretrapa'. "bungalows', and the sacrifice of the Interests of children and yet who refuse to con alder the relief which could be afforded at once with funds made available by this plan. "Three timea tne voters of Berks. ley have refused to vote bonds in 1824, 12 and 1830. Do those who advocate another bond Issue assume that the people of Berkeley have no right to think for themselves, or that thev are not qualified to make judgment on school matters? I have faith in Berkeley people and am sure they will never consider bonds again, now that a better plan has been made available. This en abling act providing tor a direct U gives the board power to budget when the need of a new building arises, and should be continued so that bonds will never be necessary: mat m expense ana aeiay csusea by unsuccessful ' bond campaigns may never be borne again." ur. Hector and Hamilton J. Ha- ney, Berkeley businessman, are being opposed for election on their tax plan by Mrs, Harriet Ellel and Dr. William 8. Morgan, proponents of bonds. Speaking In the Interests of the two latter candidates, and -denouncing the direct-tax plan because there is no time limit set for its operation, and because only 40 per cent of the money raised Is available for school buildings, Edward A. Martin, president of the League Opposed to a Raise in the Tax Limit, addressed a meet ing at tha Central Improvement club, where he urged .defeat ot the plan. HOLDS PIN INADEQUATE Martin also declared that under the best circumstances tha tax would produce only a very small amount of the sum needed to care for what he termed distressing and Immediate needs ot the Berkeley schools. Emphasizing his objections to the proposal, Martin said: "The proposed Increase In the special school tax would add 80 rents to the tax rate, not tor fixed period, but indefinitely. If adopted, 'the only way this limit could ever be reduced would 'be by a vote of the people, bit-a-tax limit ' once raised is seldom. II ever, lowered. Attempts have been made to Justify this tax on ths grounds that It is a direct tax for school build lngs. Such Is not the case. The law specifically provides that only in the event of a surplus remain ing on "hand at the close of any school year may any part of -this fund be used for building. -Even then the maximum which may be expended for building purposes must not exceed 40 per cent of tne tax under that provision, "There is no guarantes that even that 40 per cent would be used for buildings; it may be spent for maintenance, Increase in salaries, or other school administrative ex penses. The expenditure of the fund is entirely within the discretion of the board of education. In other words, ths proposed Increase in tne tax limit asks tns voters to add 30 cents to the present tsx with the hope thst 12 cents of it might be available forachool build ing.'

California had 370 deaths from drowning last year, many of which could have been prevented, according to an annual report issued here today ; by Dr. Olles 8. Porter, state director- of publlo health.' , Thla Is the highest total for any of the last 10 years, -Dr. Porter- , said, exceptWor 1920, when the. collapse ot the St. Francis dam in southern California raised the death toll from drowning to 70S. A total of 1851 persons have met their death in this manner during the last decade, with annual totals ranging from 814 to 370. MOST BETWEEN 85 AND M. Most of those drowned are men, the report revealed, and the peak months are May, June. July and August, .when the vacation season, is at it- height. Approximately 24 per cent of the victims are between 35 and 54 years of age. .The ssfest "swimming years" are between 20 and 84. Use ot artificial respiration would have saved hundreds of those listed aa victims during the last ten years, - Dr. Porter declared. He reoom- . mended the prone pressure method, which is endorsed by the American, Red Cross, the United States publlo health service and other public health organisations. Briefly, he explained, this method consists of placing the palms of th hands on the email ot the back ot the victim after he ha bean- laid oat in a prone position. The flu-sera should reet on the ribs, the little finger juat touching; the lowest rib. OONTINED FOR HOURS) The weight of the operator's) body la then gradually brought to . bear upon the patient, followed lm- . mediately by a swing backward in order to relieve the pressure com- i pletely. j This artificial respiration Is con-tinued without interruption until natural breathing Is restored, tor four hours or longer.
