Citizens generally applnuded the council for this and wt; sincerely hope that they continue to do many of the things the town needs while taking care of the routine phases of the town government as well as did the former council. Below is shown a graph of what the now fed- oral income tax rates will mean in savings to taxpayers. The saving in many cases will be sufficient to pay ALL of the direct tax levies. The tax cut will ho appreciated by most of us for in most, instances next year's direct property levies will he higher than they have been in the past year. But it should he remembered that for tho average tax payer the federal income tax is still the principal burden. Yet most of us complain far more about tho local taxeyi than we do about, our income tax. Perhaps that tendency explains the present trend to havo tho state or federal government tax us more heavily with income taxes and then send back grants for roads or schools or other things. Usually when we receive such we think more kindly toward the Income tax collector. But we usually get hack only about $3 for every 14 paid in. Wo be- lievo the local governmental agencies should get their taxes directly, Income or otherwise, and bypass the rotl tnpe and inefficiency usually found in tho federal government's systems. The Hon. Otlui H. Weariu struck a cogent note In Hastings last week when he told the Hotary club that he could remember "rip-roaring campaigns" for township clerk. Now, ho went on, no one knows who the clerk is, because, most of his duties have been taken from him. The point was that our democratic procedure is suffering because of the continued centralization of governmental functions. So that the township and local boards have less lights. So we hope today's edltorializers in the green was carried out In table school news department (who have been far too decorations and in the food, satisfied of late for them have demanded no sweep- Mr. and Mrs. Hornbuckle and ing changes) will take heart with the doctor's experience and work for the future. ^- - purchaBed for them Had Dr. Campbell s suggestions been followed at tho time he made them several hundred MHS students would have had better light and the school district would have saved itself a considerable sum of money because of the later inflation. • Mrs. Linda Tolby, the evangelist, all bill got a good share of the Silver Urn Masonic lodge headed down the sawdust trail Sunday when she added to the traditional streets of gold, houses of pearl, etc., which are used to describe heaven, the thought that there would be no taxes there and many of the Masons, who were attending the Baptist church Hoyrt McVey's Truck Over- Turns Mouth of Town Boyd McVey met with an accident south of town as he was driving a gravel truck, when it At the Methodist afternoon guests and members enjoyed a social time.
