ROUND ABOUT TOW1V Woe unto you, scribes and Phar*«**. hypocrites, for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the Platter, but wlthing they are full M « xtortfon and excess.—Matthew 'I believe there has been more inquiry into 'delinquent tax' than I have seen since I have been In this office," said City Secretary Jim Erwln. "Some have paid the delinquencies; others evidently are • trying to take car e of the back taxes.' There has been more 'conversation' about back taxes on the Wests of Denton, no doubt other titles, during the past r e w months than ever before. In fact the delinquent tax matter has become more serious In recent years tha ever and now C. A. Jay estimates the amount of delinquent taxes du the State as around one hundre and twenty million dollars. Tha amount, it seems, does not take In to consideration the taxes due th Incorporated cities of the State. In •'the coming session of the Legisla hire the matter of 'sales tax' may •» submitted the Legislature, bu •many citizens, as well as Legisla tors, have expressed their sent! menu as regards such a tax. Seem Ingly most people now, as was the ease hi th e past session of the Legislature, are opposed to any further increase in the tax burden, foisted .on the shoulders of those who pay Surely of the $120,000,000 taxes due the-state there la a large amount ,that Is collectable. It is, no doubt true that many people are at this time unable to pay their taxes, and this condition should be taken into consideration, but, on the other hand, there are more than likely 'many who are fully able to discharge their tax debts. A collection RECORD-CHRONICLE of these delinquent taxes should be attempted before any other tax is placed on the tax-paying public, 'Betrenchment in governmental expenditure* by the Stale might be continued. B. W. Settle, of Port Worth, is a new resident of Denton, and he admits the fact that he is much impressed with Denton and its people.

CONSUMERS' ADVOY BOARD OBJECTS TO PROVISIONS FOR PRICE CONTROL IN NRA CODES Aiks Holding Up Retail Code Until Enture Subject Of Minimum Prices Can Be Studied; Coal Action Soofr. WASHINGTON, Sept. 9.-<AP)-Newly raised objections of the NRA consumers' advisory board to price control provisions in codes of competition engaged the attention of the industrial administration today while it awaited the filing of objection* by bituminous coal operators to the new compact drafted for their industry by PENTON," TEXAS, SATURDAY^ FTERNQON, SEPTEMBER 9,1933 Texan Chosen Banking Head Hugh S. Johnson. The board asked that the master code for retail trade be held up pending investigation by a specia committee Into the entire subjec of minimum price control, which it regarded as a major question oi policy. However, Deputy Administrator Arthur D. Whiteside—in charge of the retail codes—had no plans for delay and regarded it essential to fet the master charter, covering dry goods, drugs, food dealers and ill other classes, into force as qulck- y as possible. Coal Developments Soon. Major developments in the coal Ituation were expected soon, after "It's an odd coincidence," said J D. Bates, "but the four storms whlc have'caused so much damage in th Valley have visited that section o the fourth day of the month. Th first was on July 4, the next o August 4, and the last and mos disastros on Sept. 4." Mr. Bate, has been worried over each one, a his son, Dick Bates, lives in Browns vllle. Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Roberts and Henry Taliaferro have returne< from Tennesseee where they wer guests of relativs. Tallferro visited in Brownsville, while the Boberts were In Sherron. "I have never seen more things to eat grown by farmers than they have "in that see tion of Tenneessee," said Taliaferro. "Those Tenneesee hams are found in every home; it's impossible to buy one, as they save them for their own use. One of my relatives put up 2,700 pounds of country cured meat. I got all I could eat, but none would let me have any .to bring home. Tomatoes are most plentiful, selling for 30 cents per bushel, and peas, we. it seems they have enough to supply the world.' "No, I'm not quite a 'lame-duck' politician," admitted John Harmonson, Justin; whose name appeared on the recent ticket as a delegate of the Repeal forces. "So far as Denton County's vote is concerned. 1 surely am a 'lame-duck', but the balance of the State vote pulled me out of that class, and I'll get to go to Austin to vote for the winning side." It won't belong now till Denton will welcome again the students of both colleges. Students, in fact, will start arriving in Denton during the coming week, as registration starts the following week. The Public Schools, too, will soon be in full swing, and already local merchants are talking and displaying school accessories. And won't it make a difference In Denton? Yes. and don't forget that any day now 'cotton-checks' are expected for Denton County farmers. It's time to start thinking about the money that will soon be loosed here. It'll help the NBA movement—it'll boost sales of Denton merchants. The Record- I Chronicle will carry messages and ' jlnvitations to these people from the ' merchants of Denton. rord from Johnson yesterday that in view of the opposition of the »al men the code would have to be evised extensively. He still clung o hope of obtaining agreement of he mine operators so as to avoid imposing the code on them by presl- entlal edict. All factions of mine len were engaged in meetings. Meantime, the National Labor ward was taking an active hand in djustment of two strike situations, "he first had called out thousands f workers in silk mills of the New ersey area and was being dealt with by meetings in New York, preliminary to a hearing on the silk codes which is to be held here next week. The other, thfi Cleveland Street Car strike, brought plans from both the chairman, Senator Wagner o New York, and Edward F.

Chief of the matters before the body was a decision whether or not to reduce the amount of fire and tornado insurance carried on municipal properties. The problem had been forecast at the meetings making out this year's budget, when it had been suggested the fire-resisting municipal buildings might be adequately protected by smaller amounts than now carried. Last year the city's Insurance to- talled approximately $211,200, about $119,600 fire Insurance and about $91,600 tornado and hailstorm insurance, of that amount the greater part is carried on the municipal JUilding and the utilities plant, the former carrying $50.000 in each type of policy, the latter $25,000. Two Agents Respond. Only two Insurance agents responded to the Invitation to come refore the commission, Joe Gambill Jr. and M. L. Barney.
