Agree School fax Needs Equalizing iACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Gov, Ronald Reagan and California Assembly Speaker Bob Moretti agree new taxes are needed to equalize financing In the state's school districts, with a statewide property tax likely. The California Supreme Court ruled Aug. SO that the present local property tax system of school financing discriminates unconstitutionally against pupils In districts short on taxable property wealth. The court implied but did not rule expressly that the amount of money spent per pupil is the best available test for the quality of education a school district offers. Ordered Hearing It nevertheless ordered a Superior Court hearing of a suit by 16 Los Angeles residents charging that the state's local property tax system of school support discriminates on the basis of wealth. State Deputy Atty. Gen. San ford Gruskin has said it remains for the plaintiffs to prove in court that there is an actual correlation between the quality of education offered by a school district and the property wealth of its residents. As the California Legislature reconvened and was confronted with the major new issue of public school financing, Reagan said he favored a statewide property tax as part of a new system of school support. Reagan, a Republican, also told a news conference he wants a study of the state's entire tax structure to see if there are any other new taxes that can be levied for schools. "We may have to accept some statewide property tax," said Moretti, a Democrat, "but by and large I would like to see it (school revenue) drawn from some other source." Other Sources Moretti mentioned the possibility of an increase in bank and corporation taxes. Other possible sources would be boosts in state income and sales taxes. In taking the course It did, the Supreme Court supported arguments long advanced by John E. Coons, a University of California law professor, for equalization of educational opportunity. In a friend-of-the-court oral argument, Coons repeated a view he expressed two years ago in the California Law Review: '*We accept as a fact the positive relation between the cost and quality of education. Less Risky "... This assumption Is less risky than might at first appear. The stale will be in no position to deny its validity. That relation is itself the justification for the existing financing system, nearly all of which permit districts to apply varying tax rates and to spend varying amounts per pupil in order to implement local aspirations and meet local needs. "However unsatisfactory It may be as a measure for individual cases ... money is the only feasible criterion." Coons declared in an interview that the court's decision says only "that the quality of public education may not be a function of wealth." "And that," Coons said, "is all it says." Gold Still Missing PERTH, Australia (AP) — The historic wreck of the first British ship ever known to have reached Australia has been sabotaged by a mysterious band of divers. Det. Sgt. W. Doherty said underwater charges damaged the wreck's ancient cannon and an- c h o r s. More undetonated charges were found near the wreck. The ship, the merchantman Tryal, foundered in 1622 on rocks .off the Monte Bello islands, 1,200 miles north of Perth, with the loss of 07 lives. The Tryal carried gold sovereigns worth $280,000, but the treasure never was found.

The bloodiest battle In American history put Gettysburg on the world tourist map, and the town has been living off it ever since. The 53,000 casualties who fell on those three horrible days on July 1863, in what proved to the Civil War's turning point, unwittingly created an economic bonanza that today attracts 4.5 million visitors annually who spend more than $28 million. Just Another Town Without that chance meeting between Gen. Robert E. Lee's invading Confederates and the defending Union forces, followed a few months later by President Abraham Lincoln's address, Gettysburg would be just another quiet community in rural America. Gettysburg also has the farm home of the late president, Dwight D. Eisenhower. His widow, Mamie, still dwells there. The town takes advantage of that, too. "This community can survive now only with tourists," says a Gettysburg Chamber of Commerce spokesman. The Second Battle That lucrative trade has caught the town up in what some tag the Second Battle of Gettysburg, a legal fight to halt or at least slow down the commercialism around the shrine. 'The legal battle centers around a 307-foot basket-weave tower on spindly steel legs. The tower Is designed to give the tourist, for $1, a better chance than ever to see the ridges, hills, woods and wheat fields where cannons boomed and the cold steel of bayonets and hot lead of rifle bullets ripped into sweaty bodies. Opponents say the tower will be an environmental obscenity and an Intrusion that will break the spell of history. Thomas R. Ottenstein, millionaire Washington promoter, denies his tower is strictly for the money. He calls it educational, describes it as "a classroom in the sky," and insists it will provide "a feeling of liberation, which is basically what the Civil War was all about." Won Injunc""-i Gov. Milton J. Shapp, condemning the deal, went to court. Claiming the tower will violate the constitutional rights of Pennsylvania to enjoy "the natural, scenic, historic and aesthetic values of the environment," he won a temporary injunction. On Sept. 22 a judge will hear argument on whether to make the ban permanent. Is Gettysburg honky tonk, selling slightly phony history and fun to visitors who buy made-in-Japan souvenirs by the barrelful? Or docs it really try. to show and tell it like It was? There is some of both. It's the government's job to chronicle in the park what went on 108 years ago on the 16,000 acres that today boasts 2,393 monuments dedicated by states and regiments, 415 cannons and 70 miles of wood and stone fences. Keep Tourists Spending "We're trying to recreate a historyscape, not a battle scene with the gore," says Jerry Schober, park superintendent. "What we do is retain the appearance of the land, including crops planted and harvested by locals like It was when the soldiers came here to fight." Keeping the tourists entertained and spending is the successful goal of the 16 private attractions, 13 of them self- styled museums. You can tour the battle sites by bus, hire a National Park Service guide, fly over in a helicopter, ride through in your own car assisted by a rented, taped synopsis of the sights, or walk the hallowed ground where the battle raged, reliving the final fury, while carrying a rented recorder that describes the events with a background of music and cannon fire.
