-Ihe next meeting of the Salem Town Board is scheduled tor -Jan 28 am Somers Civic Association to discuss projects Monday By JOHN WYNGAARD MADISON — Those state legislators led by Sen Casimir Kendziorski of Milwaukee who are suggesting a boost in motor vehicle registration fees to provide a subsidy fund for the succor of the desperately ailing local bu3 system have done a good Job of publicity promotion Probably the effort is not entirely unrelated to the fact that -the transit problem is more severe in Milwaukee than elsewhere and that the Democrats now risen to power in the Capital are aware of the corollary circumstances that Milwaukee provided most of the big margin of their flection victories of last fall ' It ia demonstrable that the decline of toe urban bus is a severe problem Bold remedial measures are needed for toe health of toe urban population centers But to suggest a small nuisance tax upon toe ' motorist as a means of providing toe money to pay for cures or palliatives is to doom the idea at its birth County zoning committee favors okay of six items All six requests considered by the county zoning committee Wednesday night were recommended for approval by the County Board Robert J Schuch 9132 39th recommended for ap- mend rezoning of the Hill ‘N’ was the request of Hale Subdivision in Pleasant Also proval George Connolly and Leon C Nikels operators of the Town N’ County Shopping Center for Ave was requesting permission a change in zoning from B resi-to store cement contractors’ dential to A Commercial ’for equipment on the rear of his' several lots adjacent to their property ' t A request from Jesse E Hunt Rt 1 Box 227 Bristol for permission to use a building on his property for commercial purposes and erect a sign was recommended for- approval A request for permission to use another building for welding was recommended for denial The request of Khlosh Ham-dia 6214 3rd Ave for an to Prairie Township from Agricultural to A Residential The property is east of the Rolling Meadows Subdivision Approval will be recommended for a request from the Pleasant Prairie Town Board to property for use as an addition- -

the taxpayers” If the legislature accepts the idea of social responsibility for urban transit it will be through the medium of general taxation The gesture about boosting the auto tax mildly for bus subsidies is unfortunate for a more important reason When it is knocked down it will delay for another indefinite period legislative recognition of the fact — a demonstrable and unfortunate fact — that the motor vehicle is a strangely favored item of property in a period of painful burdens upon property in general Wisconsin taxes its motor vehicles less than almost all the states in the country In virtually every typical precinct in Wisconsin toe homeowner is groaning under the weight of his property levies without real hope of relief or even of stabilization of the burden - But on toe public roads of Wisconsin are a couple million motor vehicles that are taxed at only a fraction of the rate that applies to ' real or personal property Ohe legislature has been shown countless times that toe $18 fee now charged for the - standard automobile falls far short of paying ' the costs of municipal service occasioned by toe ’ existence of the vehicle without regard to the general cost of government -SOMERS — Activities and projects for the year will be outlined by members of the Somers Gvic association when tt meets at 7:30 pm Monday at toe town hall “Betty Edquist president said the organization is open to all town residents interested to recreation civic questions legislation information senior citizen problems men’s service club or similar areas Mrs Edquist invited every area organization to send a representative to present ideas for the coming year Other officers are Phyllis Borger vice president Elizabeth Felton secretary and Margaret Kohlsteadt treasurer -
