Monday evening the council met promptly in Mayor D. E. Whitfield's office, buckled down to the work before them and in two hours directed Town Clerk Wood- tord R. Byiiigton to prepare the estimate printed In this issue. The council, as the estimate record states, will meet Monday, July 31, at 8 p. m. in Mayor Whltfleld's office to hear the objections of tax payers. Down fl.820 from last year's estimate, the 1934 budget Is more than was actually spent In 1932-33. This, however, does not mean that the council will Increase spending, but offers the possibility that even more economies will be enforced. Chief item to be raised by taxation is that for debt service which amounts to nearly two- thirds of the entire amount. Some $7,900 will go for bonds and Interest while only $12,140 will be raised by taxation. Another interesting feature of the estimate is that while valuations have been lowered on taxable property the estimated taxes per $1,000 of assessed value is $19.603 as compared to $24.469 last year.

NEW SIGNS Into litatvern Thursday afternoon drove the bin orange track of the Iowa State Highway commission, loaded down with road signs. Driving to the various places along Highway 41 where signs are used workmen unscrewed old rusty signs, replaced them with shiny new ones. Not favoring this community alone, the commission is replacing badly worn or discolored signs generally so that motorists can find their way along the state's roads more easily. No small job is before them. In Malvern alone there are places for nearly two dozen signs tor stopping, for regulation of speed and for designation of highway number. Over the state the number used reads much like a war debt.
