What apparently no one has publicly tried to do is find, why the figures differ--and in the answer to that question -lies an important consideration* as to whether this initiative should be approved by the voters. There is one cardinal factor conceded by both sides; The measure will increase state taxes. There concessions stop. Educators working for passage of the measure say the increase in state taxes will be 90 csnts per $100 valuation. Taxpaying groups say the increase will be $1.23. The difference is that the educators originally ignored the ·provision-for. establishment of kindergartens. ·Then'-, the-figures were revised on the basis that, kindergartens would be. operated only half tim'e,- ; -so the additional kindergarten cost to the state, would be; half the amount of this cost that taxpaying .'groups .alleged. The initiative'.-.-.does, not' declare that- kindergartens shall 1 be operated.,half time. It states "funds, for the maintenance of kindergarten schools,, common schools and high schdols--:of the state, in, addition to revenue 'otherwise available therefor,· shall be .provided and allocated . . ." Note the'.-word '"shall," which in legal parlance is a synomym for "must".. On a state-wide basis, educators contend the " increase in state taxes will be offset by decreases in local school .district .levies and; thus provide a shift of tax burden .to include larger tax. payments from corporations which are outside school districts. ' - Locally, educators make no such positive claim. They recognize that the cost of-'; expanding', the school system and the effects of inflation.,-could play havoc with plans for tax reduction. How. ever, aside from these two factors^ they do estimate a possible saving of about $1.24 per $100 valuation. ' : ' The .taxpaying groups .contend that, even if local budgets .are reduced in proportion to the increase in state aid, the' best that could happen is -a 68-cent increase in the .combined ra'tes.'This is for district No. 1, and the.figures are generally proportionate to other districts. There are two causes for this difference. The first cause is the same as in the, case of increased state rate--contending kindergartens will be operated only half time, and" using a lower figure (by 600 pupils) as. an estimate for attendance in kindergarten. The second cause is that the educators do not include in their figures the cost of any building program, which together, with operating expenses form the basis of per-pupil cost of education. There is another factor in this phase .of the question, the cost of constructing rooms to ac- 'commodate kindergarten pupils. Local educators estimate this at somewhere around $300,000 for 31 rooms at as many schools. And certainly with a 1953-54 building program of five new elementary schools, another', junior high and two additional high schools,··building costs 'are pertinent to the question of .education costs in school district No 1, Amphitheater and Sunnyside. Such facts lend weight to the contention there will be no reduction in school taxes for-severa years to 'come. A fourth' factor in the argument is how the state aid will'be used. Educators contend that the' present law providing for 75 per cent of the funds being used 'for instruction and administra- fhe;Roof Of The Earth By George C. Sotalsky , Soviet China-, announces the invasion % of the theocracy-of Tibet;" an isolated country, sparsely settled"-and,, devoted to the Lamaistic form .of Buddhism.: Only'Tibet and the Vatican City are owned by religions; Tibet by Buddhism, at the head.of whi,ch is Dalai,L'ama,' the'Vatican, by the Roman Catholic Church, at the" head" of which is the Bishop of Rome, the Pope. ·. The possession of Tibet by the Coniinform, through -SoviebRussia or Soviet .China, which are identical,' would 'give to this 'imperialist power a tremendous leverage in" Buddhistic countries, which include all the nations',of : the Indo-Chinese world. Already ,Soviet.Russia holds Mongolia and China, two^very important Buddhistic areas. Tibet is" the, highest country in the -world, ranging from 12,000 'to ,24,000 feet toward the. clouds. Its Height has .in tEe past given it protection against predatory countries, although it has been invaded and conquered. It is surrounded by China .and Turkistan, by.Kashmir and Ladak, by India, Nepal and Bhutan. Its capital is the holy city., of Lhasa. The Tibetans call their country Bod; Tibet is a Europeanized corruption of the word which means High Bod. It is a cold, hard land, difficult for human life. Out of it flow the great: rivers of Asia in- torrents down the mountain, passes. The people 'of Tibet are of Mongolian origin, with-racial admixtures as the borders are reached. Their, spoken language is close to the Burmese; their written' language is derived from. Sanskrit. Their'(literature is wholly religious. ' Tibet'.is/probably the only country where polyandry 'is practised; that is, a woman marries family- of brothers. The religion is primitive, monastic; Buddhism, called Lamaism, the monks Jiving^in vast monasteries in poverty and chastity. The government of the country is completely in the hands .of the-Lamas, among, whom the.greatest ·is the Dalai Lama, the ecclesiastical, head, residing in Lhasa; : the Panchen Tashi Lama-is second in influence and often first in power. He sometimes ;comes out into the world and engages in politics. The Dalai Lama is-chosen by metempsychosis. According to this ^Buddhistic doctrine, life is eternal;-there is no death. The life of a being is in many forms through interminable, ages. The soul-, of man may move;- upon his death, into- the-.body of a higher or a lower being, depending ^.-upon Kis goodness. -'.-.:. : This perhaps is as correct a statement of Buddhistic natural law (karma) as any other:, "According to the;seed that's sown,' So is the' fruit ye -reap therefrom, ,; Doer'of good will gather good, . Doer .of; evil evil'reaps. . ·;;, : Sown is 1 'the see'd, and thou:"shalt taste The :fruit · thereof.'".;- So.when the,Dalai Lama dies, a quest is made for a, male baby born at precisely that moment, for the soul-must find a body, whether- of man or Prof. Mark Van Doren CHINESE PEACE DOVE tion will no longer be effective. Taxpaying groups deny this and say the present law remains in effect. Educators, then, are saying the money could be used for expansion of existing schools, and taxpaying groups are denying this is the case. Obviously, if -both sides are' serious, only a court suit can settle thi$ legal question. Crux of" the dispute boils down', to whether state aid can be .increased without a net increase in combined taxes. The history of events after two similar, previous increases shows -that taxes will not be lowered. School population in Arizona is still increasing, and the spectre of inflation is .yet with: us. If the argument is. used -that the state aid measure will broaden r the school tax base, that too does not/hold water in Pirna county. For example, of Pima county's total-;valuation,,32 per cent is owned by the Phelps Dodge Corporation at Ajo, one "of the^groups educators' claim should pay a larger shar,e of school taxes. But 47 per cent of the valuation is in schooljdistrict No. 1 and comprises homes "and commercial properties, all of whom pay state taxes. Who, then, will actually bear" this added tax burden? The answer is obvious. ' - - t plain truth .is that more tax money cannot be-spent without raising -taxes,, valuations, or both',''regardless of whether the money:'is«spent for education" or other governmental services, beast or-insect. Once the hierarchy among the LamasV decides that this particular babe is the one, he is taken to Lhasa, becomes the Dalai. Lama and for.a good part of. his life is, in. effect, the prisoner, of'his guardians. - ir ,,'; : The possession of the Dalai Lama is, .therefore, of great importance politically-in the Budd- histic' world, particularly among those Buddhists who adhere to Lamaism. Buddhism seeded itself in Tibet in the eighth century as part of a social revolution--there was to be no distinction between rich and poor, humble and great. However, at the end of each great reform,- the rich were rich and the poor were poor, which, surprised the Tibetan .sages. . : Tibet was - conquered · by the Mongols under Kublai Khan, and-thus China became the suzerain over-Tibet, an authority now claimed by Soviet- China. The Ming rulers of China found it more satisfactory to deal with the Tibetan ecclesiastics than with laymen and thus the authority of the Lamas was confirmed.;by the. great power of China. \ In the 20th century, Tibet came, within the sphere of influence of British India, which controlled the best paths toward Lhasa. The situa- NEW-YOHK,' Oct'. 31.--liT View of the evasiveness' of Prof. Mark Van Doren, of Columbia university, when John Shine, si reporter for the New York'Journal-American, asked him questions regarding the Society for- "the -Pre- vention'of World War Hi", 1^ submit information concerning his political 'associations 'and interests. This fellow is chairman'of the board of the Society, which Is a secre-· -tive layout, but had the galpto tell Mr. Shine he didn't know whether it had 'a. constitution. He didn't know how it raised the money to carry on. Its lambasting campaign against rpeople who wanted to keep Germany out of Russia's hands and make her a useful anti-CommunisJ; nation. He-didn't-know positively whether there" was a list of its members. - , The New Masses, an outright Communist paper, on Oct 30, 1945, named him as'a sponsor of the American Committeef or Spanish ^Freedom, which was nominated a subversive organization by the United States attorney .general. A bulletin, issued in June, 1949, named him as.a sponsor of the National Council of American-Soviet Friendship.'This thing also was v designated subversive by the attorney general The newspapers of Oct. 9, 1944, listed Van Doren as a signer of an open letter to Governor Dewey by the Schappes Defense Committee, likewise so designated. Now don't let anyone tout you off-such' listings as meaningless fragments. The Communist line and the anti- anti-Commuaist line of the ; smaarbund who tried to dis-. credit Senator Joe McCarthy ·, in'the La ttimore case, and later tried to discredit Red Channels in the- Jean Muir case always have it that this.material consists of.a-lot of old newspaper clippings and;mimeographed handouts from Communist fronts. Sure, it'does. That is mostly what newspaper morgues are made' of. But they constitute a priceless record -and, properly latched together and interpreted, they tell the'r story. The stuff stood up in 'the Lattimore and Muir cases. All right, here we go again: You remember, of course, that old Bubblehead Wallace was the candidate of every rotten Red traitor in the country and of Joe Stalin for President of the United States in 1948. Well, a press release from the Wallace outfit dated March 23, 1948, named Van Doren as a member of,the national-Wallace for President Committee, Things finally got so bad that Bubblehead himself couldn't stick it. He got out of his own party last summer. The forgotten New York Star--a. latter phase of Marshall Field's'thing, formerly called PM or P-U--named Van Doren :as-a-member of an outfit, .probably one of those letterhead .layouts, called Writers for Wallace. Then there was the American Society for Cultural Relations with Russia. We have a folder which says he was a member of the "book committee" of this concern. Doesn't mean much, by itself. -Nor the statement that he was a writer, for the Book Find News 'of.the Book Find club.' But"sto-them together and, like alphabet soup, they spell something :a:nd what they spell ain't mother. ·-. An'old-folder says-Van-Doren .was-on the executive board- of,, the "literary · division" of the Independent Citizens ; Committee -of the Arts, Sciences and Professions. That-Js the one that got so bad- that, according to .Billy. Rose, even La Boca Grande finally-took it on the lam and privately confessed to an intimate group of Broadway poseurs that it was the no-dam-goodest of them ali. It was good enough to pay. her son,:Jimmy, $25,000 a year, however. You don't find many that, Jimmy won't take $25,000 from.. .Frank, Hale, the old prohibition agent who got. rich on, a beggarly, salary by/practicing thrift; the slot-machine rhob;' Dave Smart who spent a ; night in : the White houseV.and-stood a $75,000 tap. He says he got It back, but,the SEC says it is a grand jury and won't let anyone see what the record says. Pegler, you dam bore, will you get back on the beam?, Well, how much more do you want? Van Doren was named a member: of/Educators for Wallace in a pamphlet issued in October, 1948, and member of the: committee of'welcome, for the so-called Very Rev. Hewlett Johnson, of England, known as the Red De'aiL.In April/ '49, the-New'-York .-Times quoted him as author of a. statement approving the employment of Communists as.-public schoolteachers.-.. -.., t Oh, that's enough. There are, 22 citations all-told : but if these aren't enough to convince you, you must, be there yourself. Disarmament Fine, But How? tion was complicated by Russian intrigue, the Russians, as far back as 1880, seeking a sphere of influence in that country, incidentally, indicating to Lhasa that the czar and his family might be converted to Buddhism! AS Russian imperialism expands into Tibet, the peculiar nature of the country and Buddhism in--its'Lamaistic-form must be described and grasped.

Well, he did as much as anyone else to build that iron curtain,- nodding and shining those apples for FDR tor the Normandy strategy instead of the Danube. .. .And. this-. Van'Doren is the guy who didn't have, the faintest idea --whether.' the Society for'-the Prevention of World War III had a constitution or just ran by ear or how it raised its money, although he is chairman of the board. He-told Mr. Shine over and over that the-purpose of the bund was to prevent Germany from starting World War HI when-'Eussia had started it last June. Maybe he doesn't read the papers. But that is all right: Let hint and his; society carry_on. They are showing themselves -up day by day.
