THURSDAY, SEPT. 19, 1935 State Lending In the issue of the Webster (S. Dak.) Journal received last week, there were 16 mortage foreclosure notices, covering a total of 2398 acres of land and 3 town lots. All this land is located hi Dajrcotinty and all of it was mortaged to the State of Soutl Dakota. In mose cases the notic states ..that the taxes have been paid by Day coutny. The average price at which the land must sell, at a sheriff's sale is about twenty-five dollars an acre to return to the state the amount invesed in principal, unpaid interest and taxes. It would be interesting to know what the state would do with all this land if, for any reason, it could not be sold. It would also be interesting to know if the state owns much land acquired hi this way. iiiiiiiiiimiiiiimimiiimmiimiimiiii Waterworks (Continued from page 1) iimiimiiiiimiiii iiiimimiiiiiimi threat to the town. On the other hand, the owner of the land has agreed to sell the land to the town at the price named in the lease and to take revenue bonds in payment for it, the bonds to run over a period of 40 years at 3 per cent interest.

The town is assured, say the men who have investigated the matter, that if, for any reason, the town should default on the bonds, it would be safe from any judgment which would be a general obligation, as revenue bonds are payable solely from earnings and not from taxation on property. In the event that town should not realize enough 'revenue some year to pay the amount due that year, the holder of the bond would have to wait a while for his money, but it would be a safe investment.

A similar question involving the light plan will also be submitted and the two can be discussed together. Many people have been in fa vor of having trustees in charge of the municipal industries. The advantages, say those who hav< studied the matter, are manj and the.:dlsadvantages are few Under t|jis plan the town coun cil will appoint one member o each committee each two year. to serve for a term of six years thus spreading the appointment of the full cpmimttee over three council -administrations. This would remove the municipal industries ^frpm the influence o politics and 'would make jobi secure to'; capable employees who could not be replaced because of some personal whim, closer supervision would be possible and more attention would be given the industries than is possible under the present plan. In towns where this plan has been tried it has proved very successful. Four sisters of Decatur, HI have the same birthday; having been born at intervals of two years apart.
