FRIDAY, OCTOHKK 1>G, 193-1 ./ y Brag Wins ,00 Job Offers Diminishing Revenues and Increasing Demand Create Difficult Situation BY TED H. MAI.OV United 1'rcss Slaff Correspondent Ll'lTLE HOCK. Ark., Oct. 2(i (UP) — Diminishing 'revenue from n crumpling property tax system, an apparent Inequitable distribution of the revenue and increasing demands lor education are the explanations back of Arkansas' crippled school districts. Children in 127 districts did not hear school bells ringing this fall because there wns no money with which to operate. Scores of other districts opened their schools with funds enough for only two-month sessions. Limited assistance to these destitute districts will come from the Federal Emergency Relief Administration, authorities have promised, but the apportionments will be only on a relief basis. The grants from federal funds will be a pauper's share, providing a poor substitute for full-term education. Many Districts Overburdened Why are the districts in such condition? There are many answers. Bond salesmen who outlined financial programs about 1927 to qrect new buildings have placed several districts in virtual bankruptcy. Property assessments from wliich revenue is derived dwindled with-the depression and tlie school boards ^{pund their overhead expenses too. great. Ad valorem taxes — those from the property assessments—for the . school year 1933-34 dropped -back to levels' of 1926 and 1927. : Last year the schools received 58,498,312 from this source of revenue—57,124,432 was in local school district taxes and $1,363, 941 was from the stale three-mill tax for the common school fund. For the school year 1926-27. the total ad valorem revenue for schools was $8,423,453 and in 1927-28 it was $8,6*2,795. Millage ;taxes have increased periodically. The . constitution first " provided/£> flye'-mUUiocaf:' school district'--fax and a"-tob-miu'sfate tax. In 1007 the levies were jumped' to seven and three mills • respectively, m 1917 tha school district maximum was raised to 12 mills with the state "tax unchanged. In 1927 , the maximum school district levy was advanced to 18 mills and the state tax still was unchanged. '• Revenue from 'the 18 mill tax last year was about the same as it was in 1927-28, the last year the 12-mill tax. was in effect.To- tnl nd valorem tax/receipts for schools dropped 52,000,000 from the' 1929-30 school year, to last, 3'CQIV .... High Schools Expensive Comparative figures • for" enrollment In public schools during-.the past 10 years are misleading Until five years ago children who moved from one district to'another were counted in both districts Now the enrollments are merely" transferred. Under the old system there were 520,940 public school children recorded as enrolled in 1922-23. Last year there were 451,900 imdcr the . new system' of counting. In 1929-30 there were 453 691 children in the public schools and 11,197 teachers on reduced salaries nd -valorem tax revenue last year 11;717 tcachres on reduced salaries taught the 451,900. High schools have brought a great Increase in expense lor the school districts. Operating costs for the higher grades are estimated at from two to .three times as much as for grade schools; and demands for better educational op- portunities'continue. High school enrollment Jumped iOT™ii 4 ' 039 in 191D - 2 ° 'o 31.081 in ija-a> and to 43.499 In 1931-32, lac last year for which records are aval able. Although the high school teachers had their salaries reduced along with others during the depression they still receive an average Hint is nearly twice as much ns that of the grade school Icachefs. .y--» itlt,,, oo.illon. too wHi l«unUln: tltrt: i fclf P» »' llrlpcr: liluri ttlt&v; »hou hou "Triilli in pays," but a little IrifliHK with •'truth pays better, vows.
