The successful culminalion of the District's refinancing through t nc Reconstruction Finance Corporation depends, in a larjic measure, upon the good faith of the taxpayers to the extent that this year's taxes be paid. There is nothing lo be gained by waiting as the lax for 1D33 and former years will not be affected by the proposed refinancing. To make it possible for you to pay your taxes, a special reduced rate to four per cent was procured for this year, a reduction of one-third from last year's tax. Only a short time remains before the hooks will be closed and I am depending upon the land owners for their full eo-operaliori. CLIFTON H.
