O Goff ;uid Auditor J. Oscar Humplvrc disclosed Monday. The "extra' 'three-tenths of a mill will l>o levied under provisions of Act 10 of 1931. The increase ill the tax rate is the result of the legislature's having put the suite into the lending business after the drouth of 1930, officials said. In 1931, the cneral Assembly authorized the issuance by the Agricultural Credit Board of $1,500,000 worth of in- Icrpsl-hcnriiiR bonds so that money could be loaned farmers to make eropn. A total of $1,300,000 worth of bonds was sold. To retire them, the 1931 act levied "upon Ihe property siluatcd within the state of an annual tax of uinchalf mill." This lax has not been levied before, officials said, because il has been possible lo handle the bonds through returns from loans and funds taken from the general rcvune fund. In 1940-11. principal ami interest requirements will total $122,700 and $128,123, respectively, Mr. off reported. He said it was feared the general revenue fund would not be able to take care of the requirements. The .0003 increase will suffice for bond requirements, he said.

Bill Brown, editor of the Daily Bruin, j and Bob Schiller, senior of the University of California at Los Angeles, said they got the idea from the "$30 every Thursday" referendum to be voted on in November by Californians. Since the idea of 530 a week for people over 50 is to create wiresprcad prosperity," they said, "we propose to give $50 a week to people under 50, to create still more prosperity." They outlined these campaign argument's: 1. Younger people (0 to 50) hnvtc occasion to spend more money than older people. E. The pensions would give, to those under 50, something to do while waiting to become 50—it might be called a dress rehearsal. 3. It is more democratic to give everybody pensions than to give [Tensions to a few. The milk bottle- tops'.' They would be of $1 denomination and weekly pension payments would he made with them. Every time one changed hands the receiver would pay a penny and punch a hole in the bottle top. "Thus a top would be self-liquidating. By the time one changed handi 100 times, it would have done away with itself, as well as paid for itself," the proponents declared. "The plan, of course, will jjtjract practically all citizens of the United States to Cali tornia. That's just what we want. More people mean more, purchasing power."
