Readers who scan the tax levies in board .proceedings published this week will notice what appears to foe a huge reduction from last year's levies. There is, in fact, a reduction, but it is nowhere near as great as it seems. A. new law now provides that levies be made on assessed valuations instead of on the valuations divided by four, as had been done for a generation or more. This changes the levies. Actual Cut 2.18 Mills. The county levy for 1932, which North Kossuth School Heads Adopt Basket Ball Schedule iLono R.ock, Sept. 19—«uperin- tenclents, principals, and coaches of the North Kossuth Conference attended an annual banquet and business meeting at Ledyard last week Monday evening. Supt. A. E. Lauritzen, iLedyard, president of the Conference last year, had charge of arrangements. The North Kossuth Conference was organized a year ago to stimulate interest in athletics among players and fans. It sponsors basketball for boys and girls and functioned under a temporary constitution last year. It proved its worth, and the temporary constitution with a few minor changes was adopted as the permanent constitution at this meeting. Swea City was a member last year, but, being able to obtain closer competition from larger than before this year. am was handicipped last , a light line. finnan called on M. G.

[ Harrington, who was grad- iity this spring, told of the ffrom the law school of the last year, and said that all •3 of the backfield will be this year. |h Kenneth Mercer, of the I high school, spoke on chan- i football rules in the, last ears.

Another jle, which has not' proved jre, attempted to end the is being paid this year, was 21.4 mills, but for this year, to be paid next year, it is 4.83 mills. This does not mean that taxes paid next year will be one-fifth of taxes paid this year. The reduction is, actually, only 2.18 mills, figured on the basis of 1932; that is, if the levy were made on the same basis as in 1932 it would be 19.32 mills. To compare the 1933 levy with that of 1932 it is necessary to multiply every 1933 levy 'by four, or else divide the 1932 levies by four, which amounts to the same thing. In the past there was a "taxable valuation," which was merely the assessed valuation divided by four. This "taxable valuation" has bean done away with, because it made unnecessary figuring. schools, will not be a member this year. A basketball schedule was adopted. All schools will have boys teams, and it is expected that al except iFentori and Titonka will be represented by girls' teams. At the close of the season troph ies will be awarded to the teams with highest rankings. Last yea the championship trophies were won by the Swea City boys and the Lone Rook girls respectively. All- onference teams will be picked at he close of the season. The bas-r tetball schedule follows: November 17—Bancroft at Led- •ard; Seneca at Titonka; Lone Rock at Fenton.

To this will be added local levies to make the grand total. Corporation Taxes Fixed. In 1932 the state levy was eight mills, which for comparison is 2 mil'ls on the new basis. The soldiers' bonus in 1932 was one mill, which is .25 mill on the new 'basis.

Anderson, veteran Des Moines aviators, managers. This management has staged successful air shows in the middlewest for the last three years. One of its shows this summer was dedication of the Des^ Moines airport. Car Owners Must Have Safety Test A highway safety campaign is being conducted by the state in cooperation with the 'Legion posts. In each town garages and service stations are approved as testing stations for brakes, lights, wheel alignment, tires, and other sources of accidents. Car owners will be asked to drive to one of these stations for testing, and if approved a state seal indicating .approval will be attached to the windshield, in addition to seeing that cars are in proper mechanical form tbe state motor vehicle department is conducting an educational campaign directed at the man behind the wheel. NO OBJECTIONS TO NEW WATER TOWER iNo objections were voiced to a new water\ tower at a meeting of the city council Monday night to hear objectors. The-contract was therefore approved, and the tower is assured. Work will start within 20 days on the foundation. Six legs will support the huge tank. The tank will be completed within 120 days, according to the contract, and work is to be rushed to get the foundation and other necessary work done before winter freezes the ground. The light at the top of the standpipe will be moved to the top of the new tank and will be 120 feet high above ground. •After the new -water tower is completed 20 or more feet will be taken off the top of the standpipe, and the rest will be used for a cooling tank for water for the city engines. The drip cooling system at the rear of the plant will then be done away with. The new water tower will be located just north of the filtration plant, and the ground will be landscaped and planted to shrubbery. This will give a park effect that Burt, Sept. 19—The iBurt Junior League baseball team recently completed a remarkable season in which it played 31 games, won 26, and lost only five. 'It won a district tournament and came within an ace of winning the state tournament at Rockwell City, losing there in the final to Cedar Rapids, 9-8. Under the rules boys in Junior League teams have to be under 17 on June 30 of the year in which they play. Because of this rule the team will lose five players next year. This was the team's second year. Last year it won the county tournament. Legion Post Sponsors Team. The team is organized under auspices of the iBurt Legion post, which furnishes suits and pays other expenses. This year was financially successful, the team even having a little money left in its treasury. Much of the team's success is due to the careful oversight of Geo. P. Hawcott, manager for the Legion Post, who has taken a deep interest in the boys. Eddie Steward is captain. . Fifteen Boys Flayed. Fifteen boys played on the team this season. Regulars were: Henry Bwoldt, pitcher; Gordon Sigsbee, catcher; Charles Hanna, first base; Willis Vogel, second base; Eddie Steward, shortstop; Derril Riddle, third base; Roy Leeper, left field; Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Chrischilles and Mr. and Mrs. D. E. Dewel will attend an NRA dinner at the Warden hotel, Fort Dodge, tonight. The dinner will be given by Otto Pfaff, NRA governor in the eighth congressional district. Mr. Chrischilles is chairman and Mr. Dewel secretary of the county board. Mr. IPfaff is a member of the state NiRA board. All county chairmen and secretaries in the district have been invited, at which it is presumed, a campaign for NRA observance will be launched. A consumers' drive is planned for either this week-end or next week in Algona. All householders will be visited and cards indicating that the signer will buy of persons who display the blue eagle will be given out for signatures. The cards read: "I will cooperate in reemployment by supporting and patronizing employers and workers who are members of NRA." • In this connection, and this is the real object of the drive, which is directly sponsored throughout the nation by the national NRA, housewives and other consumers will be urged to buy now. Persons who have money but are not putting it into circulation for needed goods are held to be slackers in the war against the depression. It is necessary that consumer buying power be increased, according to NRA. Merchants, manufacturers, and other business men have had to increase expenses for additional help, in many instances at the cost of real hardship, and proportional increase in trade is needed. To consumers who sign the pledge cards stickers bearing the blue eagle will be given. The stickers, which can be displayed anywhere, are already popular on windshields.
