Also at this same time a senior "mother's tea" was held in the home economics room. es should and must be based on the ability to pay, not on soak the consumer policy. "The State of Michigan has a surplus at the present time and I see no need to place an additional burden on the taxpay e r s. The use tax and the tax on professional services is not a Democratic program." Jacobetti said: "I'm not going to be taken in an any move to place a tax on professional services. I have an obligation to the people of my district and the State of Michigan. "I pledge myself against this program of patchwork to an already over-patchworked tax program." Tax Opposed By Jacobetti Representative D. j. Jacobetti 1 (D-108th District). assoc i a t e speaker of the House of Repre-' sentatives, said: j "I will not support the tax plan' that was released from the! House General Taxation Com-! mittee. The package calls forj a 4 per cent use tax and a four 1 per cent tax on professi on a 1: services. The House Democra t s did not endorse or sponsor the plan. This type of .taxation is regressive, and places a hardship; on small business arid people! who-are least; able to pay. Tax- ! Ironwood Man Gets Vet Post KANSAS CITY, Mo. — J o h n A.

Mon;a Sport Coupe with up In ltO hp availabk for more sizde (ISO hp available in Corsa model} UMTA Supports Uniform Road Signs Proposal MARQUETTE — support for a uniform highway bill introduced in the House of Representatives by State Rep. Dominic Jacotaetti (D-Negaunee) has been pledged by Upper Michigan Tourist Association officials. "We have been urging uniformity in placing of business signs along highway rights-of-way all along," Clyde W. Hccox. Marquette, UMTA president, declared in hailing the Michigan Supreme Court's decision favoring motels, restaurants, gasol i n e stations and other business establishments in their stand against removal of advertisi n g signs by the State Highway Department. The court declared a i 1925 Michigan law giving the de| partment authority to rem o v e such signs was unconstitutional. Rep. Jacobetti's measure, introduced before the court handed down its opinion, proposes that the state deed back to the sign owners enough land within a highway right-of-w a y to erect a sign. It would leave it up to two state agencies— the i highway department and the | tourist council—to reach agrec- ! ment with proprietors of business establishments on the design and type of sign to be erected. ', The Stale Supreme C o u r t's , opinion on the 1925 Mich i g a n i j law under which the high w a y \ commissioner was removing signs upheld contention of the Upper Michigan Tourist Association that the commissioner, in his program, was acting under pol-, icies and regulations set up byj ; the U. S. Bureau of P u b 1 i c : i Roads and not under power 1 granted by the Legislature. i "The association, which footed | the bill for the legal fight in Upper Peninsula courts and the appeal to the Supreme Court, > acted for all U.P. business inter- i ! ests, even though some of the ! estblishments affected by the sign-removal program were not members of our organization,"i Hecox declared. "The entire case, including the court decision in our favor, clear-' ly reflects the value of having a regional association which can j act for its members as well as use its resources in promoti n g I the Upper Peninsula. We h o p e i businessmen will realize this in , considering appeals for support '. for the Upper Michigan Tour i s t Association." Thousands of signs had been removed by the hignway clepai \! ment throughout the state in i what it contended was compli- i ance with Frederal Bureau of j Roads policy to withhold aid in highway construction where such signs were on rights-of-way. In opposing the department's ac-, tion, the association conten d e d many times that the policy was I discriminatory because rig h t s of-way varied in width, even on the same highways; that roads not always were constructed in 'the center of such rights-of-way, thus favoring the propriet o r whose business establishm e n t i was nearer the highway, and i that many resort and restaurant I owners were dependent upon : highway identification signs to attract business. | "We are gratified at the Supreme Court's vigilance in guarding personal and proper t y rights in this case," H ecox' said. "We believe Rep, Jacobetti's bill will set up a policy MARKSMANSHIP MEDAL—Jerome J. Oradisher, batallion executive officer, right, is shown receiving the marksmanship medal from Sgt.
