Income Tax, Property Tax And The Schools THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1930 From Little Hock comes the that school districts of Arkansas will receive from the stale lliis month in the apportionment of wftnmon school fund's $1.04 less for each child of scluiol age llifin they received a yeiir 11150. That hits Blythevillc special school district to the tune of abotil $-1,500, and other districts of lliis eumiLy and of the state proportionately. It, is said that maybe this will be made up in part by a bigger apportionment next spring, but until that materializes skepticism is justified. From Little Rock, also comes the news thai the stnte properly tax is lo be increased. The lust session of lhc legislature, adopted, an income tax law which, it was announced, would provide more money for schools and would ulso result-in time inj the lobil elimination of the state property tax. It was described as a measure for the benefit of school children and. for the relief of farm owners from oppressive taxation. Those who opposed it were called tiix dodgers, < This year there was a cut of eight tenths of a mill in the stnte property tax,-, due, the administration claimed, lo the income tax law. . Actually it was the result of a steal from the common scliool funds, to'the tune of approximately 50 cents per child. Now it is announced that the state property tax i&, going back up, while . the school apportionment is further reduced. Practically every school district in thd state will find that it has lost more in the reduced stale apportionment than its property owners have gained in the few tenths of a mill cut off the state tax. The income tax is proving to be simply an additional tax, not a substitute for the state property tax. If the state needs the money for the proper and efficient administration of public affairs or to finance needed public im- provemeiils the income lax is probably as fair a way as any of raising it. But the property tax reduction bait and the school aid bait with which support • was won for the measure are proving the sheerest of hypocritical falsehoods. We Don't Rait So Bad We have noticed even among some residents of nearby stales who ought to know us best an inclination to assume something of i. palroiimnj; air toward Arkansas. The character of the people of a state certainly is rellected in a measure by the character of the men whom they elect to positions or liit'ti public responsibility.. We would hesitate to claim for Arkansas a lOtl per cent rating on this basis, Imt huw about a little friendly comparison. Take Joe Robinson and Thaddeus Caraway, for instance, or even Harvey Parnell, and set them up against Louisiana's Jhie-y Lung, .Mississippi's Theo liilbo, Alabama's Tom Hellin, South Carolina's Cok Ulwisc, not to mention the string of Oklahoma governors who have faced or merited impeachment, the Fergusons of Texas, or the corrupt rings which citizens of many northern and eastern states permit to rule them. It looks to us as if Arkansas voters . have more judgment Hum thu prevailing average in this fair union. The fact that they didn't vole for Herbert Hoover alone, is enough to prove that.

SI Sjq'j,,, I WASHINGTON LETTER BATTLE OF 1SKANUYWI.NK Oil September 11, 1717, Washington met Ihe Brlilsh at Brandywine in one of lhc most crucial battles of Ihe Revolutionary War. General Howe started out t' take Philadelphia, then the capital ol the United States. Washington had not enough men lo meel him in open .fight, but by skillful incvcs, prcvenlcd him from cross- Ing New Jersey and obliged him to BO by sea., Howe sailed south, entered Chesapeake Bay, and. landing at the head of it, marched against Philadelphia with a forct of 18,000 men. Washlnyton met him at Brandywine Creek with but 11,000 men. Washington was forced to retire from the field, bill the defeal was so slight thai he was able lo de- lain Howe for a fortnight on the march of only 20 miles to Philadelphia. The British finally entered the city on Ihe '20th and encamped at Oermantown, where Washington attacked him.. Bui his plan to rout the invaders failed when, in the fog, one American battalion flreci into the other by mistake, thus causing ; sudden panic in the ranks. Washington then fell back to the hill-on the Schuylkill at Valley Forge, about 20 miles northwest ot Philadelphia.

OUT OUR WAY Williams APPLES, EMEV0ODV SEEMS t' - \AJV-lUT VOU 1M1EMD lly KODNKV UUTCHER NKA Service \Vrllcr WASHINGTON.—Either Uncle Sam is n fine boss or else a lot ol people nre easily satisfied. Periodically one opens one's eyes in more or less astonishment here as (he Civil Service transfers n few old federal employes lo the retired list and one discovers mei: who have been on the same job or almost the same job for hall n century or more. Although the government's (ray is comparatively low. its jobs arc seldom arduous, and In most cases they are much more secure than the general run of jobs to be found elsewhere. That's one reason men and women stay in lhc federal service for so many decades. Government workers here unless especially distinguished In certain lines, do not nnd many op-' por*nitlcs for change in the cup- ital. Sometimes they can switch to other bureaus, but the limited commercial and Industrial life of the District of Columbia oilers few possibilities within easy jumping distance. That's another reason. Take 1'rltlc in Service ,, But the government 'service also breeds an interesting type .'of worker who takes a deep personal pride in the fact thnt he is part of the government. He lakes immense pride hi the performance ol his own job and acquires, with long service nnd assured security, a sense of vested property right in it which is seldom felt by employes of private business. A newspaper coricsiwndent who browses around among the bureaus encounters many of these proud old men who delight in displaying then pro- l found knowledge of their given fields and their methods of ojwa- (icn and who seldom look forward inpplly to the time when they car BO oil on full retirement pay.

Besides such old-timers as thcot' who are passing along, there aro hundreds of others left in the government service with records almost as extensive. green ones anil large, flat whit? ones, but they all must be gathered lor immediate use before the milk inside the tender shell-like covering sets. As the beans ripen, the covering grows hard and difficult to digest and the creamy center becomes firm and dry. No matter how long the beans avc ceoked, these conditions cannot hi altered. If lima b;ans have been allowed to become over-ripe before gather- Ing. the best -way to serve them | is to rub them through a colan cier alter cooking and use them ii a puree or soullle.

The most delicious way tu servo lima beans Is in pure cream. One- half cup cream seasoned with sal and popper and added lo two cups cooked beans makes the addition of butter unnecessary. Heat the cieam to the scalding point after pouring over beans but do not let bell. If cream Is not at hand a thin sauce of the ccnstistenuy o: thirt cream can be substituted. Two tablespoons butter, 1 teaspoon Hour and '.; cup milk are the proportions to use for this sauce. Cook beans in as little water as possible to prevent burning r cook uncovered. Let water COD! away or use it in the sauce. Sal' when half cooked. Salt added t the water when the beans begin to cook tends lu toughen the c erint'. Allow thirty to forty min- t-tes for heaps to cook and forjv the habit of shaking the pan ID which they are cooking. Tile flatness of lima beans often mnkcs 11:em stick to the bottom of the pa:, onti scorch even when there is plenty of water over them. Shaking the nan prevents this without crushing the beans as stlrrm would. One pint of tender, fresh shelle.l beans will serve four persons. The combination of corn and beans known as jMiccotnsh is cicll- cious nnd serves ns an "extender" of l!v! beans. Limn beans are usually rather expensive but II combined with coin a few go u long way.

The Turkish towel is superior lo the hiu'k or paper ImveU for removing visible dirt and gems from the skin. Not long ago an invcstig;Uor in the University of Nebraska made a careful study to find out the l>cr- centagc ol germs, from the skin on underwear that was not changed sufficiently frequently. Millions and millions of germs were found on undent-ear after one clay, and lhc number increased steadily the longer the underwear happened to be worn. The modern woman wears very little underwear and (lie .some over- garments arc worn ngciin and again without dry cleaning or washing. No doubt, much of thf infection of the skin on the back and chest of which women complain may be credited to this cause. Away with the maze FRIDAY night—and money to spend.
