Firing Carefully Timed The machine gun assault apparently had been carefully prearranged and timed to create a maximum of terror. The ABC marchers were moving along the Prado. As they neared the intersection of Neptuno street a burst of fire poured into their ranks from the side streets. The marchers were prepared. They surrounded a flag-bearing leader, dropped to their knees in a circle, facing outward, and returned the fire with pistols. Among the marchers were many women. Three Women Slain The flagbearer staged a remarkable display of courage. He held his banner aloft while victims fell all around him. His cohorts returned the fire uutil the attackers broke and fled. Then the marchers continued, singing and shouting, to Fraternity Park, four blocks distant. D- 4 Bus 8:45 A. D- 6 Bus 11:29 A. D- 8 Bus 1:20 P. D-10 Bus 3:20 P. D-12 Bus 5:06 P. D-16 Bus 6:05 P.

Main St. Greenfield, Ind. Gross Income Tax Distribution When approximately $22,200 is distributed to Hancock county schools from the gross income tax July 1, as announced recently by Clarence A. Jackson, director of the gross income tax division, the county's schools will have received a total of $59,179.58 during the first twelve-month period of distributions under Indiana's three new replacement tax laws. The amount of the . distributions, which would have had to be collected through local property taxes if they had not been received from the state, is in excess of estimates furnished to school officials in the county last year when finances for the present school year were being planned. Based on a total property valuation in the county of $24,556,360, an increase of 23 cents in the average property tax rate in the county would have been necessary to raise the sum distributed by the state from the new taxes the intangibles, the beer or excise, and the gross income. The gross income distribution to schools last January was based on 111 teaching units in Hancock county, $204.36 being allotted for each teaching unit. The July distribution will be $200 per teaching unit, making a total of $404.36 per unit. Floyd I. McMurray, state superintendent of public instruction, has estimated that in most counties, the number of teaching units for the July distribution will be approximately the same as in January. A teaching unit consists of 25 high school pupils or 35 grade school pupils in average daily attendance, except in cases where the state board of education declares emergencies and allows fewer than the average number of pupils to make up a unit. Estimates last fall called for payment of $200 per unit in January and the same in July, making a total of $400 per unit. Intangibles tax distributions were somewhat under estimates, but this drop was more than balanced by an increase in payments to schools from the excise tax. Estimates provided for payment of $1.20 per pupils from the excise tax November 1, 1933, and 50 cents per pupil May 1, 1934. Actual distributions amounted to $1.33 per pupil in November, and $1.35 per pupil in May, making total excise distributions of $2.68 for each of 3,414 pupils in average daily attendance in Hancock county. Total distributions to schools of the county from all three new taxes, which amount to $533.14 for each teaching unit, follows: October 15, 1933, intangibles tax, $3,591.33; November 1, 1933, excise tax, $4,540.62; January 1, 1934, gross income tax, $22,683.96; April 15, intangibles tax, $1,554.77; May 1, 1934. excise tax, $4,608.90; July 1, 1934, gross income tax, $22,200.00; total, $59,179.58. In addition to distributions to the schools, the county general fund and cities and towns in the county have benefitted to the extent of $5,271.61 through other distributions from the intangibles and excise taxes. County general funds get one-fourth of the total intangibles tax distributions, while the other three-fourths went to schools. Each month, the state paid back to the cities and towns of the county, one-half of the beer license fees collected in each place, and all of the liquor stamp tax collected. All other excise tax collections went into the fund from which school distributions were made, the state keeping none of the excise tax receipts. Machine Guns Rake Parade Havana, June 17.

Somebody Blundered Study of the statistics reveals that a majority of the 756,500 automobile accidents in the United States in 1933 occurred on straight, dry roads in clear weather, and involved cars in good condition driven by persons with a year or more of experience. Over 75 per cent of these drivers were, persons of mature age from 225 to 64. The majority of the 30,000 deaths and S50.000 injuries must be attributed to blunders. A recent analysis by the National Bureau of Casualty and Surety Underwriters shows what the blunders were. There are eight in all. 1. Drove too fast for conditions this accounted for approximately three-fourths of all mishaps in 1933 assigned to driving blunders. 2. Failed to slow down at intersections. 3. Failed to keep to the right. ' 4. Tried to pass another car going in the same direction when view was obstructed. 5. Failed to slow down on approaching pedestrians. 6. Passed on the right of a preceding vehicle. 7. Ignored important traffic control devices. S. Parked at dangerous spots. If drivers will obey the eight common sense rules suggested by these violations, the annual accident record can be reduced to a negligible figure. W. L.
