Memo To Advertisers October statements from the Upper Des Moines Publishing Co. will be received shortly by our advertisers. They will Include a billing for 3 percent of the net advertising total for sales tax under the new state sales tax program. However, an injunction lias been issued by a district court judge prohibiting the state from collecting this tax money until a full hearing and court decision on the constitutionality of the tax is made, The temporary injunction DOES NOT, however, relieve the advertising media from the responsibility of collecting this tax, Our billing gives a specific amount of the sales tax on advertising. If the final court decision rules that the tax on advertising is invalid, each advertiser will get a sales tax refund from the Upper Des Moines, or application on account, as the advertiser may choose. If the ruling is in favor of the state tax, then it is already collected and we must collect it. We regret a situation Uie this, but have no alternative, and must abide by legal/state instructions iu the matter. At Ledyard School Is For Naught A break-in at the Ledyard Community School netted exactly nothing for thieves who entered the building Thursday night. The attempted theft was discovered by Supt. Gilbert DeBoer early Friday morning and reported to the sheriffs office here. The back door of the structure was pried open and entry gained. Once inside, however, the would- be thieves apparently got, frightened and fled without taking anything Bancroft school board has no specific plan of action for a future merger. It learned recently that a ruling blocking consolidation of Bancroft and Ledyard school districts has been upheld by the Iowa Supreme Court. Kossuth county board of education was told Wednesday night that the high court had upheld its 2-year-old decision to turn down a Bancroft-Ledyard merger plan. "I don't know what we will do," said R. S. Underkofler, Bancroft school board president, talking about the district's future plans. "Bancroft was carrying the appeal. With the court's decision, that's it," says G. E. DeBoer, Ledyard superintendent. Appeal of the Kossuth board's decision has been pending for about two years with the Supreme Court. Under Iowa law, all school districts must operate a high school or be attached to a district operating a higli school. Since Bancroft has no public high school, the Kossuth county board of education must attach it to some other school district. The situation will be discussed when the Kossutli board of education meets again after Thanksgiving, according to A. M. Quintard, Kossuth superintendent of schools. Time and date of the meeting will be announced and it will be open to the public. The Supreme Court's decision affects not only Bancroft and Ledyard school districts, but Grant, Ramsey and Greenwood townships. These townships have been sending students to Bancroft on a tuition basis.
