PAGE TWENTY. TIIE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSYTLliE!, FA. FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 193S. Solicitor to Determine WhetherSchooS Board May Abate 1937 Tax Penalties Soliciior S. D. Braemer is to determine for the Board of Education whether or not it may legally vote to abolish penalties accumulated on delinquent taxes for 1936 and 1937 and present a report when the directorate meets again, it was decided after he had revealed to the board Monday night that he had been asked to ascertain whether it could be done. Attention of the board was called to the fact that many persons who had not paid their 1937 taxes wanted to know why they should be compelled to pay accumulated penalties if they can settle their arrearage at this time whereas if they wait a year or two they can pay them without penalties. The school board had sometime ago voted to abate penalties on all delinquent taxes up to and including 1935, provided payment is made on or before April 4, the date fixed for the treasurer's sale of seated lands in Fayette county. - The declaration that persons didn't want to pay their current taxes bc- ca'Jie of the belief that eventually the penalties would be dropped caused Director William L. Zollars. opponent to elimination of. penalties, to remark: '"That's the result of the.action of -the three -bodies--council, county 'commissioners and school board--in ·abating -penalties on delinquent "taxes. That's the condition we're fostering when we take oft th'e penalties. We're encouraging delinquency in tax payments by taking off the penalties." He said that the attitude of the taxpayer is^not to bother about making settlement in a hurry but to wait ^nd when the.amount becomes delinquent to wait until a year or so passes and then the governmental "body will' abate the penalties that will have accumulated. "The city treasurer today is facing the problem of meeting people who arc saying why should they pay their taxes now with the accumulated penalties when we can wait .until they are returned to the commissioners and then pay for them without the extra cost," Director Zollar's said.

Rail Executives Seeking Ways To Reduce Expenses By WILLIAM H. LAWRENCE United Press Start Correspondent. WASHINGTON, Mar. 11.--Railroad executives, describing the new freight rate increase "madcquatc," sought new method ot reducing operating expenses today. They indicated that employe layoffs may result. One railroad--the Southern Railway system--already has announced spread-the-work program, reduction in working forces and salary cuts in an effort to decrease payrolls 10 to 15 per cent. Railway spokesmen said other railroads might take similar action. Directors ot the Association of American Railroads will hold a special meeting tomorrow to consider the rate increase authorized by the Interstate Commerce Commission and to plan "quick relict" for the industry, which contends the spread between revenues and expenditures is'loo narrow. Meanwhile, Senator William E. Borah, H., Ida., said that freight rates had reached "the limit," and that President Roosevelt and railroad ofllcials must find other means of relief at their conference next week. Chairman Burton K. Wheeler, D., Mont., ot the Senate Interstate Commerce Committee, who will attend the White House conference, said that the rate increase would provide only temporary relief. President J. J. Policy, ot the Association ot American Railroads, said that exemptions made by the ICC in its 10 per cent increase order would cut the actual increase to about 5.3 percent or approximately $175,000,000 annually based on 1930 traffic. His estimate differed sharply with that of Commissioner Joseph V^ Eastman, former coordinator of transportation, who said the increase should yield "in the neighborhood of $270,000,000." "This is about one-third the amount asked by the railroads," Policy said. "While such an increase is inadequate to meet the situation, it will be helpful to the railroads, as far as it goes. However, we cannot expect from it the substantial benefits to railroad purchases and employment, and to general business, which we hoped for had we received the increrae for which we asked." Officers/of the American Trucking Associations, Inc., announced that they would file with the ICC a petition ask/ng a 10 per cent rate in- creaEje on all commodities on which the railroads were granted increases. The increase would affect the entire common carrier trucking industry. Yes, Madam! It's For Early SPRING! Just one of many new Spring Styles we are showing in Blue Gabardine Pumps, Ties and Straps.
