By CRAWFORD GREENE Superintendent of Schools The last article discussed Ihr sources of revenue of the local district. The bulk of the school revenue comes from the 18 mill tax based on approximately three and one-half million dollars valuation In round numbers, the district hopes to receive this year $65.no from the county. S20.000 from thr state and $5.000 from miscellaneous sources. There lias been a decrease in UK state funds this year due to various causes. Last year the stat" paid about 55.30 per pupil, whereas the Sentember payment this yea-was $2.66 as contrasted to $3.10 las'! year. The Marcli apportionmc' represents chiefly the money oc cnrring to the cigarette tax. Contrary to public opinion, the ctea- relte tax does not go dlrectlv to the oomnnmlly where It Is paid bu thronuh state channels.
