HEADS SCHOOL BOARD Edward' Watkins, Ashland, well HARRISBURG, Dec. 5 (U.R) The tax burden on the local real estate owner must be lightened promptly, Governor Pinchot said' today, in outlining three steps in his last administration toward that end.

i One of the items to reduce suchj taxes, he said, was the proposal for the state to take over 53,000 miles of second class township roads, which would have saved the local taxpayers more than a year, but the legislature re- fused his plan.

M. Palmer, who received the legal papers, set Thursday morning at 10:00 as the time for the argument. The action, it was pointed out by attorneys at Pottsville, has been taken by the Bruno family counsel to compel the special prosecuting attorney, Alfred Thomas, Meadeville. recently named by Attorney General William. A.

Schnader, to present some of the evidence he has gathered against the accused and which will serve to indicate along what line he proposes to build the prosecution.

The governor pointed to his efforts to replace the fee system by fixed salaries in the collection of local taxes as another means of relieving the burden on real estate owners. "That would have saved the taxpayers more than $4,000,000 a year, but the legislature killed the bills," he said.
