OtherViews PAGE 4 Garden City Telegram Saturday, June 12, 1971 Kansas and Taxes So your taxes are too high in Kansas. That has been the dominant political theme in the state since 1966, picked up by Republican legislators in 1971. But don't try telling that to Rep. Jo&n W. Byrnes. He knows a thing about taxes, too. Byrnes is from Wisconsin. He also is the ranking Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee, which knows a thing about taxes, too. It originates all federal taxes. Various state and municipal spokesmen appeared before the House committee in Washington this week to plead the case of revenue sharing. They need the money, the committee was told, as who doesn't? But the five states represented at the day's session heard the riot act—all with good manners and in gentlemanly fashion—read by Byrnes. Kansas, Ohio, Texas, Indiana and Virginia, whose agents were there to ask for more, federal dollars, all are below the national average in the amount of state and local taxes they levy upon their residents. The national average is 13.95 per cent of personal income. Byrnes said. Kansas is the highest of the five states present for his lesson in taxation, and its state-local tax rate is 13.65. "Texas doesn't even impose an income tax of its own," said Brynes, "yet you're here asking for more money. How I can say to my constituents, with high income taxes, that the federal government will give more to Texas?" That's a good question and there will be a pause for an answer. Meanwhile Kansans should not inundate themselves in their own tears about the tax situation in this state. Despite all the words shouted from the campaign stump, Kanssas is not up to the national average yet in the amount of state and local taxes its citizens pay. To be sure, it's all relative and taxes are high everywhere. But an average by its nature also includes figures which are above the mean and that implies a good many other states are soaking their citizens with more taxes than are paid in Kansas. Taxes will be the principal subject as Kansas heads into a new round of politicking and electioneering. The language will be purple, the air will be blue but. for goodness' sake, let not private citizens fall into, a black mood about what they hear. Perspective is ever a valuable piece of goods. — Parsons Sun DATELINE WESTERN KANSAS Western Kansas: 1888-96 By NOLAN HOWELL City, Mo. The herd had been gallons of waiter daily. the county.

(Extra points here for original thinking). What size dress does the bride wear? Counting this one, how many weddings have there been in the White House? What musical group was chosen to play at the • reception? How tall is the groom? Was Ralph Nader invited to the wedding? If so, did he get there? ANSWERS MAY be sent to this newspaper.
