(SECOND SECTION PAGE MNB *.c»erick. lu., Thursday, December 6, 1951 I Will Cut Taxes If Legislature [Is Willing I Governor McKeldln promised Wednesday night to reduce taxes next year if the General Assembly 15 ·! ^an^tell you now in the coming session of the Legislature, your taxes .will be reduced unless, my ! efforts in that direction are block »ed by your representatives in the ^General Assembly," the Governor I Sa -l am not promising a fcrge | reduction," he said-, in .* -speech delivered to a meeting of-the Maryland State Grange, at Calvaiy Methodist church, "but I am/promising a start in that direction des- nite the fact that the trend still is upward in the Federal _ Govern- mpnt in many municipalities ana Aunties, and in most of the States.' Assembly Meets In February The General .Assembly.convenes ' tor 30 days next February 6. ' The Governor said his administration held the line Ln taxes during the past year but that efforts to block.any reduction are "already under way." The Governor t o l d the 200 Grangers present: "I know that you. who must figure closely from year to year on the costs and profits of your production, must view with some .alarm the casualness with which those in our Federal Government talk of arbitrarily raising the so- called safe,debt limit of the nation. I know that your practical minds must question the wisdom of the careless spending and extravagant procedures which lead to this governmental arbitrariness with the public purse. "I know that you want a start made somewhere toward a reversal of this trend of constantly higher rates of taxation, and I have been · making every effort to bring about ' such a reversal right here in Maryland. . . ,, "In the legislative session in the early part of this year, my administration held the line in taxes. I refused to sponsor any measures which'would call for an increase in taxes. I vetoed those that were passed by the Legislature without my support. Will Be Reduced "I can teli you now that in the coming session of the Legislature. I your taxes will tie reduced unless my efforts in "that direction are blocked by your representatives in the General Assembly. I am not promising a large reduction, but I am promising a start in that direction despite the fact that the trend still is upward in he Federal Government, in many municipalities and counties, and in most of the States. "The efforts to block this tax reduction already are under way.. One effort takes the form of a pro- 1 posal to override my vetoes of bills that called for tax increases in the past session of the Legislature. Another proposes diverting State general funds to pay the cost of the highway patrol by the State Police. Another suggests new ways to spend money and call for increases in taxation through legislation. "In their conference rooms, those behind the blocking of the tax reduction declare that my efforts toward tax relief are based on - politics. Is Good Politics "If that is true, it is good politics. It was in' a political campaign that I promised the people my efforts toward tax reduction. "It was in an election conducted under the American political system that the people of Maryland, th« State, and public offlclali are your servants. "If you want tax reduction, say SO. 1 "don't care whether you are a Republican or a Democrat. 1 don't care whether ypiir State Senators and your delegates are of your party or of the opposition party. They go to Annapolis to represent you and the other citizens, of your political subdivision;!. It is not only your right but your duty to let them know, and to let me know, what you wont. "JL«t me assure you that, us (ar as 1 know, the movement to block tax reduction is not widespread even among politicians or politU'iil ofltce holders. It is in its early stages of development and can be nipped in its bud--by tlie people. Universal Desire For Kcduuthut "Don't get me wrong. The desire for tax reduction and the wish to stop the constant Increase in taxa-' tion is not confined to one party In each juirty. 1 uni sure, there su'c men in positions of leadership win desire to put an end to Kovorn- mental extravagance . Certainly the great majority amoiid the ruul . and file of taxpayers want a start ihiide toward tax relief befori taxation becomes actually courts'- calory. "I am sure t h a t In the Legisla- there will fos snemberi «rf both uarties who w i l l support reasonable and well-planned efforts tow- ·ird a reversal of the tax increase ireud. "1 can assure you that no existing State services w i l l sullVr ns a ·esult of the tux rate reduction ·Vliich 1 shall propospe. Cost of ·.overhment has risen, and these ·osts shall be met where they hould bo met. Some proposals for TO WEST COAST--The U. S.

Charles Priest, Jr., USN, son. of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Priest, of Reno, Nev., and husband-of the former Miss Suzanne Marie Randall, daughter of Col. and Mrs. Raymond Randall, of Camp Detrick. in no uncertain terms, called for tax reduction. "But I defy anyone to show me anywhere in the recent political picture in Maryland that there was a mandate for those obstructionists to oppose tax reduction. * "I do not know yet what form the proposed tax reduction will take. "But I do know that some of those who now are opposing tax reduction in my administration have, in the past, been most vociferous in their demands for real estate tax relief. "I do know that some who are now planning blockades against tax reduction were most vociferous in their opposition to the sales taxes. "I do know that some of those, who fear tax reduction now. have, in the past, shouted for lower income taxes. Let's Have More Politics "Politics? Well, let us have more politics. Politics of the people. You don't have to wait for an election to speak to your representatives and let them know what you are thinking. You are not wards of the State: you are not mere taxpaying robots working mainly for the support of government.
