Such examination, wo believe, will convince even those most impressed with the need J'or increased school funds, and those to whom a sales tax is not objectionable in principle, that the program, advanced by the .state board of education is not to the best interests of this county, The proposal, in substance, is for .'< 3 per cent tax oil all retail sales with the exception of certain already heavily taxed commodities, estimated to constitute about 15 per cent of all retail '.sales, and for the repeal of the present 3-mill state school tax. II would involve .elimination, of the present common school, which -is based on enumci'ation of persons of sohoq! age, 'and would substitute •therefore an apportionment, based ; :pn . average daily attendance, of $'100 or let's per "teacher unit" of 30 pupils. The proposed sales lax would cost the fjcoplc of Mississippi county about ,?185,'OOG per year, using retail sales. for 1!)33 as a basis and maltinjr allow 1 '" ancc for exemptions estimated at iO per cent.. This ligurc is exceedingly conservative, fTor 1933 sales were far below thosp of ,193<1 and presumably sales lh is year and in failure years iivi.ll be substantially "above- those of 1933. To ofi'sct this there will be a saving to. general properly taxpayers in this county of H|>prq.\iimilcly §30,-''' 000, the result of the proposal! repeal of the 3-mill state school tax. The net increase in taxation in tins county would therefore be uol less than $.M9,- 000 per year—a' substantial sum. II is doubtful if the people of this county-are ready to accept such a tax increase under any circumstances. Certainly they at least want to know in advance what benefits; it would bring them. Figuring the apportionment to the schools of this county under the proposed plan on the most liberal basi.s conceivable—thai is, allowing ;ui apportionment of ?'100 per year'for every . 30 pupils in aveiage daily attendance in, the schools, of this county—we gel a figure of $M5,200, which is slightly less than the net increase in taxation.
