hlURSDAY, MABClI 17, 1938 BLYTHEVILLE (AUK.)" COURIEU NEWS IGTIKTTUES Continued Jroni page 1 'aving Districts No. Two and No. Three lor refinancing of Hie dis- ricts' banded indebtedness and icttlng of the rate of levy on Assessments brought on prolonged liscussion. Prank C. Douglas, attorney for he cominisslonci's, explained the jroposnl, which if adopted, will rc- inancc Ihe districts' indebtedness remove Ihc cm-rent federal iiirl receivership, according to Mr. ' las- He suggested ft levy rate for this year of 6 per cent which would reduce annual lax payments of properly owners who arc not delinquent in payment of Ihcir district taxes by between 25 a,nd 30 per cent and a smaller reduction for those who are delinquent in lax |)aymenl for two or three years. Under Ihe original formation plan of (he districts in 1024 the total bonded Indebtedness was to have been retired in 1948 but delinquencies and subsequent default of bond retirements during the depression forced the districts ultimately inio receivership, Ihc council was told. The refunding program calls for the entire bonded indebtedness of Ihe districts to become payable in 1951, but under the proiwsal the commissioners will use surplus revenues above annual interest charges to cull for tenders and buy in uonds offered at a discount. Mr. Douglas said that one half of the property in the districts was regarded as prompt payment property, one fourth as "forced" pay- livcut properly ami one-fourth as equalities existed ill (he original assessments but Dial these could not be changed by Ihe commissioners. He iwiiitcd oul, as did Mr. Douglas, Iliat the assessments under Ihc refinancing program arc really the balance 01 the unpaid original assessments by Ihe districts. He said it was highly doiiblful if the districts could have paid oul in 19)8 nuclei' Ihe old setup even if bondholders had not iiilervcned and thrown Ihc districts Into receivership bill said he iviis confident that the entire debt could be paid out by 1950 or 1951 under the refund- Ing proposal. The proposed refunding bond program is based on 43 per cent remaining of the original assessment on ptiitl up properties. On properties delinquent in 1035, 1936 iinfl 1937 o: 1 any of years the delinquent assessments will be placed in l-lie total listed under the refunding program and no delinquent fax decrees will be taken for those years, Mr, Douglas declared He contended the districts have good .tillc to nil properties lax delinquent prior lo 1034. If Ihe refunding program fall: Mr. Douglas declared Ihls morning, the commissioners us federal eoun. receivers will be forced lo lake over and collect rents froin all properties in which lillc is already confirmed In the districts. Similar steps are lo be laken ever if Ihe refunding program fails 01 properties already owjicd by the district, he declared last nlgiu. City nldcrmen declared they were unwilling to proceed by fixing n levy without git-ing taxpayers a further opportunity to be 'heard. Alderman John C. McHaney jr. suggested an audit of the districts- booKs be made also. Alderman Jess While said lie could not vote for the condemnation resolution mill! he liiui a chance to view the properties himself. Alclenncu Welch, McHaney find J. L.

Alderman White slated his cm phatie opposition to (lie proposed junk dealers' ordinance maintaining (hat- a number of young- boys who had no parents to depend on for a living or whose parents wiiild not make a living legitimately obtained and sold junk (o junk deal- •I'hiale revenue to be gained from the latter was problematical but- declared Ihe commissioners intended to get what they' could out of this property, already bought in by the districts at tax foreclosure sales, and get it back on Ihe books as tax paying property. V. G. Holland, properly owner in the dislricUi, questioned the advisability of the commissioners holding the property in which title had already been confirmed in the districts for what he believed to be loo great a price, contending- that sale for almost any price in order to get the 'property back on (lie taxbooks would benefit taxpayers. Douglass declared that the commissioners desired to make sales hut, said that reluctance of attorneys for lending -agencies ; to. approve "tax" titles made sales difficult without- £ujtclaiin deeds from the original Wi4ors. He contended Ihe comBjgfioners did not "desire /° sell property^ at nominal prices A? "speculator:;" anc! in (his he was supported by M. Mzshmhons, commissioner. C. J.

Seme of them aiu ambitions lourjh to expect to liuvc nnlnmlect li'iilure.s In llic Iliralore by next Clirlsliiius—y:l none- of them has slory nor unydiliii; resembling the stuff, and equipment that |}ls- uey has assembled.

And Kcjileslnger do?.sn'l wimt lo make features. One ixmwfiil studio, I'm told by certain tirlisls who should know, has set- out with checkbook and blaudishiiu'lils to lure away all llic Disney iinlmators and directors who can bs hired. The iTsponse hiis been astonishing and—lo Disney, If lie taw. iiljoiil II—licniiruliiir. Couliontcd with fat olfm from Ihe big studio, his artists and technicians have answered with raspberries. Such u demonstration of mass loyally Is without precedent In the whole history of movlelown, llic double-crossroads of creation, Disney liuiis Slum 1 H isn't illlllcull to understand the attitude of Hi? olsney workers, us cm: of them explained it to me. The as is whistling over all ol Hollywood. Thousands ot persons have liocii tired, and are still being bounced. In a worse production slump than was bronuht by the depression, some studio de- parlmcnts Iwve been eliminated, others merged, In a dcspiiivte drive for retrenchment. Hunkers control most of Ihe KUullos and can dlclato economies. . . But bankers don't worry Disney, lie and his brother own every dime's worth of their concern. They didn't huve to ask anybody's permission to gullible $1.000,000 mid more than three year's lime on an animated feature which Ihc rest of the Industry regarded as an tirltsUc. but commercially fullle cxpei Ulsney employes recall how, shortly before the bunk holiday their boss distributed nn $80,000 cash bonus. They remember, loo. hew Disney defied nil the studio licuds who in Ihc fate of (heir | (fi-entcst emergency decided (hat all! wages had to be cut 50 por cent. And loday. while payrolls elsewhere are being whittled, they feel prclly secure In the reports > which indl-! cate thai the picture they recejilly j finished likely will make more i money llian ai>- other movie ever filmed, I'litxi: arc some reasons why the hands at Hie mouse-nnd-diick factory aren't listening lo outsl'.le offers.
