Nations Cities Seek More Of State Revenue CHICAGO (UP)— Through legislative programs and resolutions adopted by state leagues of municipalities in the closing months of 1944, Ihe nation's cities this year are working toward four principal objectives. They arc: 1. General revamping of stnte fiscal systems to allow cities lo develop their own adequate revenue systems, also calling for increased sharing of state collected revenues. 2. Retirement, systems for municipal employees; inclusion of such employees in the federal social security system. 3. Slate assistance, financial and otherwise, for preparation of post- wnr public works blueprints. 4. State urban redevelopment lejf- islalion. -^ IS List Five Taxes Municipal leagues of 13 slates asked for increased sharps in stnte-c collected revenues from liquor, motor vehicles, tobacco, gasoline and retail goods taxes. Norlh Carolina cities favor allocation to localities of one per cent of the state gas lax for construction and maintenance of roads Florida citie.s propose a state cigarette tax of four cenfs a package, to he redistributed to communities where cigarettes are sold. South Dakota cities want to share revenue from Ihe State's 10 per ceiit gross tax on liquor and Texas cities want the Legislature to increase city revenues from auto Hcease fees. Oregon cities recommend that the federal government establish a national: planning agency 'to Co- orrtinsle.:ijlans;of. the .federal ;gpv- crnment with state and locarageh- cies in postwar projects. Ten states have called for prompt completion of postwar plans. Need for a retirement my old- age assistance plan'covering all public employees was expressed by municipal leagues of Minnesota, Michigan, Oregon, Tennessee Pennsylvania, Texas, - Washington nnd other states. Urge Airport Allocation Cities of three states — Florida Minnesota and South Dakota — may approve plans by which local, state and federal governments mny share costs of construction anci maintenance of aviation ground facilities for public use and Texas cities urge allocation of the state tax on aviation gasoline to cities for airports. Leagues of several slates went on record favoring: co-operalion with Federal Surplus Properly board nnd three—Kentucky. Oregon nnd Minnesota—want priorities in the purchase of federal surplus goods and equipment. Among other interesting features of programs adopted by municipal leagues in 2C states is Nebraska's petition to the State Legislnlure to amend present zoning laws so municipalities may exercise health and police protection for a distance llnee miles beyond city limits. Minnesota cilies favor legislation requiring tests for drunken drivers and for pedestrian obedience of iraffic signals. Ohio's cities want existing slnlutes amended to require (he stale department of highways to be responsible for construction and maintenance of state highway routes within city limits and Washington communities want civil service extended to local governments. be carried by rockets, nnd n letter ing from New York to London would arrive there in one hour and cost one dollar lo send, lie also pi-L-iUclitl that lit 10 or 15 yours, passengers would ue flying — over the world In rocket ships woman was Joan Younger which would by that lime be con- Unllcd Press, who snys she trolled so they wouldn't explode She wns sent lo Hint address to cover would take off slowly but would travel at n .speed of approximately 3.COO miles mi hour, -so Hint you could' if you wished, Junket to tendon simply to take a book out the British Museum and l>p of a story about post ..
