Wheat Growers Ask Easing of Taxation : BOISE AP) - The Idaho Wheat Growers Association called Wednesday for a reduction in the school tax on, property, suggesting it be replaced by the income tax. The expressibn was in a resolution approved, after considerable debate, by the association's annual convention. . , . The resolution asked that the maximum property tax permitted a local school district be reduced from the present 30 mills to 15 mills. In discussion, a number of speakers s a i d ' t h e y felt there should be no reduction in revenue available to school districts, that the problem of operating schools on existing revenue already was a difficult one. But backers of the resolution contended it was merely putting the. wheat growers, on record as favoring a shift of the lax burden from the propeily owner. The association approved a number flf other resolutions, including those endorsing .the 1960 marketing program for wheat developed by. the National Association of Wheat Growers; urging enactment of legislation to prevent wheat adulteration); asking that wheat allotments b? provided for'new land brought under cultivation, and authorizing an investigation by the association of the possibility of establishing a wheat terminal for the purposes of calculating freight r a t e s , i n the Intermountatn area'. Action on the resolutions was the final business before the convention.' Ex-child Star Returns to Acting After Succeeding in Business By BOB THOMAS .

Twenty-five years later, you can still see a trace of that haughty look. But time has mellowed the face and marched the hairline far back on his head. His billing is now Jack Searl ("They can call me Jackie, or anything, as long as they call me"), and he is doing a thriving business as a character actor in TV films. Though he's doing well now, he's quick to admit that he has had other, rougher times, when Hollywood turned its back on him. "When I got out of the Army, I thought I'd resume my acting career," he recalled. "Nothing happened. I didn't know anybody, and nobody remembered me. I did two pictures and then nothing came. "I did everything. I hired out as carpenter on building projects. I worked as a machinist. I was on the swing shift at Lockheed and made cabinets in my garage in the daytime. You name it and I'd do it." Searl got into the business of making containers for imported sewing machines and other products. It proved a bonanza.

He played a brat, and that set the pattern for his early career. . . Jack kept busy during his teens in films l,ike "Great Expectations" "Peck's Bad Boy" and "Little Lord Fauntleroy." He enlisted in the Army right after Pearl Harbor and served 4V£ years, mostly as radio instructor. He met his wife in the Army and they now have two boys, 15 and . By HAL BOYLE YOURV1LLE, U.S.A.
