Tax Increases reported by 114 towns as necessary to amortize required school construction ranged from one-half mill to 16 mills. Eighteen towns h.'ive exceeded the regular five per cent'limitation on total indebtedness in order to finance new schools, and 23 others will have to do so if they are to finance all the school construction nocdud in 194!)1951.

The United States embassy computes the American dollar outlay for the six-year reconstruction period In the Philippines at $022,000,000 In outright grants and relief, $1,250,000,000 for wugcs, purchases ancj miscellaneous military } expenditures, and $10,000,000 from private welfare groups. That brings the total to $1,882,000,000. The young republic admittedly faces a grace .economic problem when the present American aiil progra.m expires at the end of 1951. Financial experts of both countries have been giving a lot of thought to ways of keeping the.Philippines lolvent. when, as a leading Filipino economist put It, "the great windfall of American dollars stops." Tho problem In a nutshell Is that thin country has made Insufficient progress toward balancing Imports and exports. Secretary of Finance Plo Pedrosa said the Philippines now has, roughly, an unfavorable trade bulnnco of $250,000,000 a y«f»r. Tho main roaaons lor thlii arc the war's devastation, the slow recovery of soil Industries, the lack of industrial facilities which forces the country to buy most of its commodities abroad, and a Communist-led peasant movement which has retarded agricultural production on Lu/.pn. Remedies proposed and planned include government encouragement of expanded farm, mining and, to a limited extent, industrial programs', water power development, restoration of internal law and order, and import controls. The six-year American aid program has provided money and iechnical assistance for reconstruction of public buildings, private homes, bridges, roads, docks and public services, and for setting the republic's economic wheels in motion.
