iNbW CASTLE, PA., NEWS, FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 1938. SHVFN Farm Taxes In State Failing Figures Reveal National Survey Just Completed Shows Pennsylvania With Low Farm Tax Cost GRADUAL FALLING OFF IS SHOWN By RAYMOND WIIXOVE 1 literiiii rioiiii 1 Nev^s Service Staff HARRISBURG. April 22.— Farm taxo.s in Pennsylvania arc falling, contrary to the rise in other states, it was revealed today. Raised on a national survey just fomplet€‘d by the United States Bureau of Agricultural Economics and released here by the State Department of Agriculture, taxes on farm leal estate as per $100 of farm value were shown to have fallen from $2.21 in 1932 to $1.70 for 1936, the latest year available. The rate for 1935 was $1.72. Rirthermore, stated the State Ag- iiculture Department, “the survey for 1937 and 1938 is expected to show a further reduction in farm taxes in Pennsylvania due to the abolition of poor boards, increased state appropriations for schools, and state mamtenance of more township roads. Higher rates are predicted for other stat-es.” Fall Is Gradual From 1930 to 1936, according to: the Federal bureau, farm taxes per acre fell from $1.30 to 98 cents. | Based on an index which equaled i 100 per c€nt as of 1913, the bureau statistics showed a drop in farm real estate taxes from 259 per cent in 1930 to 195 per cent in 1936. F’arm bankruptcies in Pennsylvania also declined, it was revealed, dropping from 134 in 1935-36 to 114 in 1036-37. The number of farm bankruptcies in Pennsylvania in 1936-37 averaged 8.8 per cent of the entire number of bankruptcies in the state during that period. The state departments prediction of higlier rates for other states was j backed also by a statement from the Federal Bureau of Agriculture which stated “A preliminary survey cf the trend of tax levies between 1936 and 1937 was made among tax officials and tax students in the various states. The personal judgments of these authorities in some 42 states, as summarized by the bureau, indicate that for the country as a whole the levies of 1937 averaged somewhat higher than thase 3f 1936.’^ Real Estate Higher Offsetting the fall in taxes dur- the four or five years, real estate values since after the war have shown an enormous decline, according to the Federal bureau, dropping in Pennsylvania from an index of 140 per cent in 1920 (based on a 100 per cent average as of 191214) td 87 in 1937. ince 1933, however, when it reached a low of 78 I)er cent it has risen steadily. The decline in farm values, however, was considerably less in Pennsylvania than in the nation as a whole, the Federal bureau pointed out. Between 1920 and 1937 farm real estate in the nation decreased in value by 50 per cent, while in Pennsylvania for the same j>eriod the decrease was 38 {X m - cent.

O.—A six-legged sheep owned by Orva Butler, a dealer in wool and sheep at nearby Mt. Vic- j lory. The sheep is four years old and is ' normal in every ether way. Two' “spare legs’’ protrude from the left : side at the shoulder. The sheep is active and is not handicapped by its extra legs, Mr.; Butler said. It was born in Mon- i tana while its mother was being i shipped to Mt. Victory in a load | of feeding lambs. I^anguage is a medium for the ? expression of thought. When one ; attempts to w’rite he must have thoughts to express and he must have a working knowledge of this medium, which we call language, for the expression of thoughts. The correct meaning of words, how' to spell them, the proper arrangements of words in sentences, the arrangement of sentences in paragraphs, are some of the things which people must know if they expect to WTite correctly. In learning to talk a child utters sounds which at first have a doubtful meaning. As the child's experiences increase he refines these sounds and gradually learns to associate them with the correct meaning. This is a slow- process, and teachers and parents must be alert constantly in aiding children to talk correctly. But it is not until people try to write that the inaccuracies of their language become fully evident. “I plege a legion to the flag of homes where an intelligent effort is made to promote accuracy in language. If we adults are tempted to sniile at children’s errors in language we might make some interesting discoveries if we attempted to commit to writing the Preamble of the United States Constitution, the first sen­ tence of the Declaration of Indo-; I>endence, the Pledge of Allegiance ! or other well known excerpts from the literature of citizenship, ; Fi'anco may learn that lx)rrowing troops isn’t like borrowing a lawn mow^er.
