Iowa City — Property taxes to support public schools will rise 50 per cent in the next eight years if present trends in Iowa continue,! according to a prediction by the Iowa Center for Research in School Administration, located at The State University of Idwa. Iowa property taxes for schools went beyond the $100 million mark very early in the 1950's, will exceed $200 million annually in 1960, and 1 will hit $300 million annually by 1968, states a report by the new research center. The report, written by SUI Professor S. J. Knezevich, executive director of the Iowa Center for Research in School Administration, is titled "Past and Present Problems in Financing Iowa Schools." Inflation, of course, takes its toll on schools as well as other parts of society, tjie article notes. Increasing enrollments, expanding programs; better qualified teachers, and lengthening the school term to include summer school expenditures contribute their share to ever-rising costs, the report points out. If present means of financing various governmental expenditures do not change radically, Iowa property taxes will total more than $400 million annually (for all governmental purposes) by 1962, more than $500 million by 1967, and more than $600 million by 1971. The research center was established at SUI last year for the purpose of improving educational administration in Iowa. It is based upon the idea that many of the answers for improving education must come from studies of the relationship of school organization and educational qualities, explains John W. Harold, superintendent of Cedar Falls schools and president of the research council. The center. is currently completing a report summarizing such information as enrollment, census figures and teacher salaries in 270 Iowa schools. Projects undertaken by the Iowa center are financed mainly by dues paid by some 150 schools in the state which are charter members of the research council. Commenting on the work of "school study commissions," the report points out that their recommendations have not generally been adopted by the legislature. "The call for more reliance on taxes other than those on property to Wednesday, February 15. 1961 POSTVILLE (Iowa) HERALD 7 support Iowa schools has been heard for 25 years or longer," notes the report. "One might conclude that the Iowa pattern of the last 50 years (at least as far as school finance is concerned) has been: first, to appoint a tax study commission; second, to ignore most of the forward- Iooking recommendations; and third, to enact frequently repeated and non-controversial recommendations after a 'decent' period of time has elapsed," comments Professor Knezevich in the report. "The basic idea of relying on the property taxes to pay the lion's share of the cost of educating children and youth in Iowa public schools continues right up to the present day," the school report continues. "Everywhere around us there is evidence that the people of the State of Iowa have experienced much change and progress during the more than 120 years since organization as a territory. The basic framework for supporting public schools in Iowa, in contrast, has changed but little during these same years," the report adds. "All indications are that the financial plight facing schools will worsen if we continue to rely on 19th-century patterns to finance 20th-century institutions," Knezevich concludes in the discussion of Iowa school financing. Tracing the history of state aid to Iowa schools, which began in 1913, the report points out that during the early part of the 1930 *3 revenues received by schools from state sources amounted to only between one and two per cent of the total school revenues. There was a wait of several years for the next significant event in state support of schools—in 1945 about $1 million in supplemental aids and $2 million in transportation aids were appropriated by the legislature. In spite of the increase in amounts, only about 3% per cent of the total cost of schools in 1945 was covered by direct state aids to schools, the report continues. Total direct aids in 1947 reached $11 million but only 11% per cent of the total cost of public education. "It must be kept in mind that full payment of state aid claims to local districts was a rarity in spite of the increased state monies appropriated," the SUI research center report continues. In 1950-51 general aid claims had to be pro­ rated at 87% per cent of the amouni due, supplemental aid to 88.7 per cent and transportation aid to about 87 per cent. The most recent school aid requisitions for 1959-60 continued the practice, for once again the appropriations forced general aids to be prorated at 88.9 per cent and supplemental aids at 41.6 per cent. RETIRING? CHECK FOR SOCIAL SECURITY If you are retiring in the near future, you can speed the delivery of your first check by bringing all necessary evidence with you on your first visit to the district office, so stated Albert J. D'Amour, district manager of the Winona, Minnesota social security office. Almost everyone who applies for monthly benefits must prove his age. A birth certificate is the best evidence, but if not available, there are many other styles of evidence which will prove age, such as baptismal certificate, insurance policy, family bible, etc. Evidence of recent earnings may also be needed to establish your monthly payment. The 1960 withholding tax statement (Form W-2) is the best evidence for an employee. The self-employed should bring copies of the two previous years' tax return and evidence to show that tax returns were filed with Internal Revenue Service. A cancelled check, money order stub, or bank receipt is sufficient evidence to show that the return was filed. If married, and your wife is also applying for monthly benefits, evidence of her age will also be required, D'Amour stated if you have any doubt about what evidence will be needed to process your claim, call the social security office before you retire and the representative will be glad to explain just what evidence you might need. If you have the necessary proofs when you apply for benefits, it will help speed up your first check. SHOWER A postal baby shower was given Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Ruhl by Ruhl's patrons on Anamosa RFD 1.
