EXPENDITURES OF OFFICERS AREJ5ET OUT Diagrams Show How Tax Dollar Goes in Kossuth. The annual financial report is out, and copies may be . obtained from County Auditor Bertha E. Johnson as long as the supply lasts. The printing was let to the late Seth B. Calry, of the Whtttemore Champion, who had the type set and the paper cut .when his fatal automobile accident occurred. The book, which consists of 40 pages arid cover, contains much information of interest to taxpayers. The order called for 600 copies. Following Mr. Cairy's death, the -print- Ing, assembling, and binding were done at the Advance shop. Tax Diagrams Featured. The most interesting- feature of the book is* a page giving two diagrams showing where the Koasuth tax dollar goes. These diagrams, prepared from data supplied by Miss Johnson, are published in connection with this story. The Champion commented last week as follows: "The diagrams show clearly what everyone knows yet often forgets, namely that more than one-half of the taxes in the towns and almost one-half of the country taxes go to support the schools. In the case of the towns another big Item is the town's share. "In the case of country taxes the big item corresponding to the town corporation tax is the road maintenance tax. < It is somewhat surprising to note that a larger share of the country total is allocated to the state than in the case of the towns. It will be noted that in the case of both country and town distribution the shares going for other than chool maintenance are compara- vely small. "Looking at the diagrams, one can eadily understand that the econo- lie.s so loudly demanded in the case f other than school, town corpora- on, and country road maintenance annot possibly cut much figure, ven If eve'rything demanded is con- Where the Taxes Go 0<S lS 0T \0* '* &<* IOK nent Is Announced— i engagement of Violet Frerk,' daughter of the Rev. and Mrs. ng, to Gerald W.

No great reduction In taxes therefore possible unless ways an be found to reduce these three ems. And of course no one wants o cut these items to the point where ervice will suffer." Supervisors Draw $13,000. Much of the book is devoted to in- ormatlon of a statistical nature oncerning the county's finances. 'he per diem and mileage of mem- ers of the board of supervisors last •ear cost the county nearly $13,000 e follows: Balgeman — $2375 McDonald 2503 \mnemark _ 2469 Imc taken to a by the IU Bancroft, for private hospital George Wohnkes, an operation.

The creamery is still turning out a record amount of butter. The territory covered by trucks has •been enlarged January 1,. and 15 »ew patrons are' being served. Trucks which deliver butter from various creameries at Mason City have of late been off schedule because of bad roade necessitating both light trucks and light loads, requiring more trips. The Algona buttermaker had to load butter at 3 a. m. one morning last week, and the truck which comes here did not arrive till Sunday, when a ISO-tub load was taken. T HESE DIAGRAMS, prepared by County Auditor Bertha E. Johnson for the 1932 financial report, show in striking fashion how the tax dollar in Kossuth is distributed. The cut was ordered by the late Seth B. Cairy, of the Whittemore Champion, who had the type set and the paper for the report cut when his fatal accident occurred. The printing was begun last week and the books will be delivered to the auditor this week-end.
