At Harrison school for Noeroes, svliich also serves ps a high school, 12 rooms .one for each grade, must house TI5 pupils. One room, where the lirst grade pupils meet, has an enrollment ol 138 this year. Confronted with the increasing need lor a source of funds for repairs, ar.ri other operating costs which have increased in recent years, the school board members agreed to make use ol the voluntary tax idea to obtain additional funds. Tliey agreed that it is fairer than another drive for contributions such as was made last year to obtain lunch lor purchase of a site for ft new high school, and one which would provide much quicker relief than could be obtained through a general revision ot assessments. Assessment Situallon Studied Records al the court house re- fiect that, assessment totals for the Blytheville school district on real ami personal property were less last year than they were in 1929. even though the city had doubled its population. Personal property assessments today are but half of the total recorded for 1929 and the re.-u estate assessments have increased less than four per cent in two decades.

All incmbu's ol the board attended the. meeting at which It was decided to seek the voluntary tax levy of 10 mills to supplement the regular 18-mill tax lor school purposes and the supplemental revenues from the state. The IS-mill tax last year provided less than one-third ot the lunris needed to operate the schools in the city and at nearby Yarbro.
