JMerger of Schools Would Save JMoney Only 20-Cent Jump in Tax Rate Would Be Needed, Check Shows This is the fourth of a series of article on estimated' costs of providing municipal services and school for the annexed area of East Columbus. By ROBERT E. GORDON Editor, The Evening; Republican. The third article in this series had to do with e.ost of education for children of the annexed area of East Columbus and revealed it would necessitate a 47 cent increase in the city school tax rate. Now, what Is the picture in event a consolidation of all the schools within the bounds of Columbus township is brought about? Petitions for consolidation are in the hands of the city school board and the Columbus townshiD advisory board. These officials are now checking the legal steps necessary to conduct an election on the issue, The people will be asked to de- clde whether or not they want con solidation. Without Consolidation. Figures presented Saturday showed that in event of annexation without school consolidation the school tax rate would jump from $1.96 on each $100 property valuation to $2.43 with the 75 cent accumulative building fund rate included. Estimates prepared by city school administrators Bhow that with consolidation the school rate would go to $2.16 with the 75 cent building tax included. Under consolidation it would not be necessary for the school city to expend $225,000 or more for purchase of the East Columbus school buildings. With consolidation the total assessed valuation on which tax rates for the schools would be based would jump to $23,359,615, an increase of $6,584,035 over the present city school base. With consolidation the bonding capacity of the city-township unit would jump to an estimated $467,-000. The $275000 already in the city's accumulative building fund would become the property of the joint city-township school unit. This total will reach around $400,-000 by the end of the current tax year. Bonding Capacity. With the higher bonding capacity brought about by the increased valuation, the consolidated unit would be in position finan cially to expend approximately $800,000 for school buildings by the end of 1949. Of this amount $400,0(X( would be available through bond issue and $400,000 from the accumulative building fund. With a broader tax- base the 75 cent accumulative building fund tax would produce an estimated $175,000 revenue for building pur poses in 1950. With annexation without consolidation the local school unit faces In 1950 a 47 cent school tax increase, purchase of the Bast Columbus buildings, and would have available $400,000 for building purposes by the end of the current year. With consolidation the school unit would face a 20 cent tax. rate Increase and have $800,000 available for building by the end of 1849. Actually, according to the school figures, the Columbus township tax rate for school operation would be reduced from $1.80 to $1.40 under consolidation. The addition of the 75 cents building total which is not a permanent rate, boost the total to $2.15. S.800 Pupils In Unit Approximately 2,500 pupils now attend the Columbus city schools. With consolidation the number of children in the city-township- unit would be about 3,800. With consolidation the school would be administered by a joint city-township board. Following Is the appr&ximate enrollment in the schools within Columbus township during the past school year: Township East Columbus 750, Twenty-fifth street emergency school, 275, Clifty SO, Wright 45, Lowell SO, Mt. Pleasant 52, Wagner 43. City Senior high school 1,185, Wilson S82, Lincoln 129, Jefferson 221, McKlnley 426 and Garfield 149. With consolidation the children now : attending the township school would be in school nine months out of the year instead of eight ' month. The teacher salary rate would be higher and teachers would ,be required to meet higher educational standards. Tomorrow Total tax rate. E. C. Unglesby Files Action for Divorce Edward C.

Nearby, pinned to the trunk of a tree, was a note that said: "Sorry, goodbye, good luck." TV Parties The Rage in City Monday Television won a host of fans here Monday with telecasting of the 500-mile Speedway rac? by WFBM-TV, Indianapolis, and at the same time introduced to Columbus on a big scale a new social event television parties. Garages, basements and- store rooms were turned into television theaters as the guests flocked in. At some homes where front rooms were too small the visitors gathered outside and looked in through the windows. "After the results from WFBM-TV you can say that television has really arrived in Columbus," local TV dealers said in chorus today. Local sets have been receiving i Cincinnati and Louisville TV sta tions for some time, but advent of Indianapolis' TV program Monday marked the real start of television here. Good To Perfect. Because of its nearness, the In- uc revei veu ncic wnu guuu icbuiu , at almost all times. All local TV dealers who had sets working Monday reported reception "good to perfect." As a result , of the TV parties, some planned and some more or less spontaneous, it is a safe bet to say that more people saw the race in Columbus than the number of local folks who journeyed to the 500-mile track.' good as a seat in the Indianapolis grandstands some thought it better, they didn't have to worry about sunburn. The TV cameras kept the grandstand straighaway, northwest and southwest turns before their audience as the cars buzzed around the track. At the same time the motors of the cars roared. Ray Spellman or Mead Village, who turned his garage into a TV theater for friends, threatened to burn castor oil. "It's all we ;need to make it the real thing," he said. In front of various homes throughout the city Monday could be seen gathered cars. If there was a queer-looking square-shaped antenna on the roof, you knew it wasn't a family gathering, it was jUBt another TV party. A number of employes of Nob- litt-Sparka Industries, which is planning to make its first TV sets this summer, had their sets in operation and their houses full. Among houses where cars gathered in front was that of Edgar L. Snider, who had a television show in the basement. George Ochs, 1803 Gilmore street, also had a full house, while Mr. and Mrs. Gordon T. Ritter found, they were holding open house on Riverside drive. Harry Packs 'em In. Harry Williams, radio and TV dealer, packed them in at a Karaite at his home. Westermeier Hard- ware company, Webers Firestone store and the Davis Appli- ance store also had showings and lots of guests. At the Davis store -J.he owner and employes were so busy . entertaining they missed everything but the finish. Paul V. Castner, also a radio and TV dealer, had sets working both at his shop and home, showing to all comers.. He also had a set in operation at Central Are station. Other sets were playing host at the home of Charles Stevens on East Seventh street and Dr. T. D. Carpenter, Gilmore street. There were a few tips on TV parties which the first big televi - sion day in the city brought to set owners: that conversation will be at.a minimum; that the chump who insists on talking at the wrong time will quickly be ostracized from ail future televi- sion parties; that small chairs will be needed for the small fry down front so they won't get their heads in the way of the grownups, and that TV sets are going to be hard on the ice-boxes of the owners. ' Cookies, lemonade, coffee, sandwiches and ice cream were on the menu of some of Monday's parties. At others the guests brought their D picnic lunches and spent the day. BUTTER PRICE OFF.
