The most i!t>tii!i£i>nioiit consistent with maintenance of a Class A school system will leave the district, with revciiilfs as they arc at present, with nn annual deficit of'approximaldy ?20,000. There is no possibility of in- . creasing school revenues though ;mtt>ml- ment of the present constitutional limit on school taxes before 1<J3-1. In the meantime wo must oil her find means of making up this deficit or face the prospect of temporarily discontinuing our high school. • The latter alternative is imlhinkabla. Scarcely anything we could do would hurl Blylhoville more. 1 Appreciating that the situation is one that has to be faced, a group of business men and properly owners, representing most of the largo laxpayint; interests of the community, met Hie other night to discuss ways and means of providing adequate school U'vvmus. Their decision, reached without disa>nt, was that until a change in tliu constitution can be obtained it-i s up to the taxpayers of the district to submit to a voluntary tax adequate to the emergency. These men, most of whom aro the ones who will be hardest hit by the ex-' tra fax, not only pledged Ilicmselves to pay it, but promised (heir help in the campaign to sign up I lie necessary 75 per cent of the property. Now it is up to the rest of us—(he smaller taxpayers of tlie district to whom the increase will mean only a 1'nv dolhira a year—to insure (he preservation of o\ir high school l,y our prompt agreement to pay the voluntary tax. Maintenance of an adequate school system is the first obligation of any community. The slate constitution does not permit us to lax ourselves sufficiently for this purpose in the regular way. It docs not prevent our assessing ourselves a voluntary extra (ax adequate to the Good citizens interested in (he welfare, 'now and in Die fnliiiv, m lliiir community ,ind ils buys and idrls, v.-ill welcome this opportunity to do tlieir share.

The present seems lo them very b'ack indeed and the only brighter aspect of ihe future lies in the i fact that the tanfl batlie canno', l BO on forever. When President Hoover sume ol them to breakfast, to talk over the possibilities of Epecd-up, as demanded by HOIISB Floor Leader'Tilson. they told him sadly but blnnily that he had bitter keep his Ehiri 0:1 because any executive interference would only make things worse. Sees "Needless Delay" The almost general disappointment of the regular Republicans with (he result of the special and regular sessions In the Hoover ad- minlsiratioii's first year is expressed by Senator Hiram Blng- hani. of Connecticut, whose position is similar to thai of other Old Guardsmen such as Smoot 01: Utah, Uccd and Grundy of Pennsylvania, Fcss of Ohio and Glll;u of Massachusetts. "The action of (ho coalition of Democrats and western Republicans has caused serious and 'needless legislative delay as well as business uncertainty," Bingham says.
