MONDAY, JANUARY 16, If JO ALTON BVBN1NO fBLBORAMf »AOItLSVltt Our Public Debt And How It Grew Interest Now Amounts to $5 Billion Annually H> JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON, Jam 16. (fi — Everybody talks about 'the public debt. But what Is it and how did It get that way? The debt is money owed by the government which borrowed It to meet expenses. When for any reason its Income —mainly from taxes—Is less than lt« expenses, the government borrows to pay the bills. It borrows by selling bonds or other securities to Individuals, banks, Insurance companies, corporations. It pays Interest on almost every penny borrowed. The debt now Is around $257 billion. The interest is around $5 billion a year. Depending on the deal made when the money Is borrowed, the government must pay it all back sometime, from 90 days to 30 years. This public debt started In 1790, Just after the government began. Until recent years it never was much. For example: By 1917, just before World War I, the debt was not much more than one billion dollars. By Aug. 1919, It had jumped to $26 billion. That's because the government had to borrow to pay for the shdot- IniK In World War I. Between 1919 and 1930 government Income was bigger than its expenses. It used the difference to pay off some of the debt. So the debt, which was $26 billion in 1919, was down to $16 billion in 1930. Then came the depression. The Village Official* Accept Tree Pledge Plaque at Roxana Maryjaynes Gets Shipman DAR Award government's income dropped because millions of people's taxable income dropped. Nevertheless, to get the wheels going, to create jobs, such as through WPA, the government spent billions beyond its income. That meant borrowing billions. The debt, down to $16 billion in 1930, rose to $48 billions by June, 1940, when the defense program started and the government poured out more borrowed billions. By Dtc. 7, 1941—after a year of defense spending and just as we entered World War II—the debt was up to $61 billion. Roxana Auxiliary Plans Legion Council Meeting ROXANA,.

Thankless Task Calhoun Commissioners Face Tough Job in Road Upkeep By LEE HANKS Hardln Correspondent HARDIN, Jan. 16.—(Special.) — The lot of a road commissioner or supervisor is truly a hard one. He gets cussed and discussed more often than any.other public official in his county or state. And I he words of praise are often so few and far between as to be practically negligible. More than any 'he nominating committee will re- ; other individual, he is cxpect ed to n»4. nv>«l «fft nn «n (..ill Wn .rtlrtrt* nft \ ' ' ort and officers will be elected, 'here will be a discussion of time- ardener lias.

Recent heavy rains have again demonstrated the fact that road builders in Calhoun County probably have the hardest task of all road men in the 102 counties of the state. Runoff water Is the worst menace to roads in any section, but in Calhoun the problem is terrific. Calhoun creeks do not run—they race. The hills are so steep and the . obson will lead the devotions and j valleys so narrow, that an ordl- Wayne Sutherland will be n charge of the program. Tendered Party on Birthday Mrs. Carl Russo, 2417 Brown, •as tendered a surprise dinner ;sterday on the occasion of her rthday anniversary, Arriving ome from church at noon, she ound her hosts assembled and inner awaiting.

Milton Women to Meet Milton Women, a club formed some years ago to maintain con- nary rain will cause a rise, while a big rainfall will cause a flood And oftentimes a flood will undo, in a few hours, the results of many days of painstaking labor. Like most counties, the road builders in Calhoun are always faced with lack of funds. During a discussion between a few Interested men at the courthouse the other day, some Interesting facts were brought out. For instance, the county highway department Is now getting about 12000 less In taxes than It got in 1929. District No. 3, of whim Olin Show Is commissioner, Is getting a little less than $100 more than in 1929, when his district then was divided into two districts, Thus the same road mileage is being maintained now with practically the same amount of money In Snow's district. During the last 20 years, labor and material costs have at least tripled. However, the road com' missioners in the county are getting only $1 per day more. A commissioner works for his district. now for $5 a day. He is elected as a supervisor of roads, but due to lack of funds, he works every day and most of the time for less money than the help he often has to hire. The farm to market: road program, which was ditched by the last legislature, was a Godsend to Calhoun County. Many miles of road were rocked or graveled and many farmers were lifted out of the mud for the first time. However, with the lack of state funds, road maintainers will now be forced to spend all their funds on maintenance and the funds may not stretch so far. It seems a shame that this program was abandoned and nothing provided in Its place, for Calhoun County was just beginning to enjoy the effect of Its uplift. It is unthinkable that the county's citizens may be gradually pushed back into the mud as these roads wear out. And they wear fast In these days of increased volume and quantity of traffic. The four-tori loads of 1930 have grown Into the 20-ton loads of 1950, so It is easy to figure the cause and frequency of road breakdowns. Most road commissioners or supervisors are upstanding, conscientious citizens, and this is particularly true of the group o! men who do their best to keep Calhoun roads in shape. These men did not seek their jobs for the monetnr) return, but from the standpoint ot being helpful to their community. All citizens owe them their fullest cooperation and should hand a few compliments to them now and then Instead of so much of censure.
