1'' - HE lOLA DAILY REGISTER. THURSDAY EVENTING. DECEMBER 8, 1927, ISINTHEAIR Mr. Shultz Reports Next Legislature Will Con- , sider Important , Changes (Spficlal Political Letier to The. ' • Hifglstfer by A. L. Shultz.). Topeka,-Kana., Dec. 7. — When th^ next legislature tackles the jph of fixing taxes as they should Ije, it will-open supply of trou- file that ought to stay on tap until the session ends. Already there are enough tax prdposals to patch a half dozen crazy quiUs for the ladies fcazaar. Now there Is al note i)f sadness. The legislature "may undertake to.slide jobs iright from under 2.000 faithful and •more a,r \ less efficient" assessors and pile all ' xhe responsibility on shoulders ot property' owners.. One of the most fanciful tax plans proposed for the mext ^eel- in^ qf the law makers is'abandon- ment of the local iJBsessor plan. ; In the'period pending asseinbly of the new house and senate a lot of facts will be tabulated that won't make (he army of assessors blush with pardonabI<'.pride. Seems as though there hafr developed in ' pome sources an-idea that the as- hi'ssors in a good many ^precincts anil townships .have done their h?avy resiing when .lliey should have been /finding things to put on the;tax rolls. Right now thcro Is a; prospect t| that When the sht^riffs; nnd coun- * ty cpjiimiKslonerH send their lob- Ui (fs tnlTopikailhat if .would be jiiiit as iweirior the township trustees to; select a few earnest'^ and , -smooth ialking delecates to repre- Ki 'nt lliem in (he (|iird house.
