Washburn, editor nnd ; utlblishcr of The Star, told Hope Rotary club at its luncheon Friday ;tioon he expects to set up state headquarters at Little nock next month nnd organize n League of Voters to cut the stnto Snles tax from 3 to 2'/f- in the referendum in the November general election, , Washburn, sponsor of the petition to refer the oxtrn cent soles tax to n popular vote, said n League of Voters is necessary because in two stale-wide petition campaigns a l found there Is no organization to speak for the Individual eiU'/.cn — all existing organizations seem to be dedicated to defending their sp'dclal Interests alone." .,"50," the editor continued, "there will be a League of Voters whose special Interest will be to look after nnd protect the little ladj^ fit the igroccry counter who buys $15 worth of food for her houseful of youngsters and then pays nn outrageous 45c extra for state Sales tax." Washburn lold the Rotarluns that Arkansas' 3% sales tax is olio" of the harshest in American history. California and Florida have a 3% tax, ho said, but both states exempt groceries and medicine. And California, like Arkansas, he continued, is voting this November on the question of reducing its 3'/« tax to 2''i. •f?ush-Button Tax • I "Although the Arkansas sales •tax was enacted originally for the schools in 1935," the newspaper publisher said, "with the passing yfears it has been turned into a push-button 'cure-all' that not only has failed to help the schools permanently but is viciously robbing tlie poor and has nearly destroyed our property assessing system." ' ' '"He charged that the sales tax has been used, to reduce property taxes ra'thcr than serving its original' purpose of aiding the "public schools. Looking at 'his -own busi- ;riess",prppert^* Washburn said; . ^%Iier° '30 years as Hope's p'u'b- lisher I give you thcse'-audil figures from Star Publishing Co. regarding local taxes; 'Our first year in business, 1929, wo paid a lax bill of $256.03' — entirely for machinery and office equipment; at thai time we owned no real estate. 'Adjusted to today's 33'Ac dollar that would mean, if we owned no additional properly, an adjusted tax bill today of $709.89. _>.' "But our actual local tax 'bill paid in 1057 was only $030.00, •' •' • "Yet we bought a building for the newspaper in 1932, tore it down in 1955 and built a modern air- conditioned ' structure for Hope Star, "As far as total tax dollars are concerned, take a good look at that building next time you walk down S, Walnut St. — because actually the tax record says there's no building there at all. "And yet .the little woman now at our grocery counter started off in JD35 paying no sales lax on groceries and medicine, In 1941 she had to pay 2% on groceries and medicine — and today our enlightened state is taing 45c on top of a $15 inflation-priced grocery bill. "My story about my newspaper's building is verified in alj the as- gossment totals, The latest total for 'JJcmpstead county is approximately 11 millions — yet 30 years ago our county had a total of 10 millions. And the total for all Ar» Kansas is only fractionally above the total of 192P — notwithstanding the (act that inflation has cut the dollar to one-third its 1920 value , and raised land values to the highest in history." <3d?etts and §shQ9i Uobby , •-" Washburn bjagte'd Hip Arkansas Gazette, and the school lobby for ppwarpupe and stupidity in abolishing jtje }8.mill ta*' coiling with Amendment 40 of 'P48, and for a, seppnd error in J956, when both the Gazette and the school forpcs "wolche'd," on a legislative deal IP restore the tax. ceiling 'at 30 mills.
