Tax Money Needed WE WOULD That the ciuzen- ship of this community could come to realize the necessity of paving school taxes and the great aid they would lend their school system thereby, Too few of us realize the true condition of our schotds and the handicap they are working under in being forced to pay off their indebted. ness with checks that cannot cagl d, h, ck, itig die past term every school employee, fromthe Superintendent down to the jani. ors were handed vouchers lor their services that they were forced to keep or trade to some one else at considerable discount. This is a deplorable condition and one that we, ourselves, should consider a disgrace. It would not be so bad could the blame be placed elsewhere, but it cannot, our own people are to blame for the reason that they did not and have not paid in their tax money that would made these vouchers good. There are some, of course that are absolutely unable at this time to do so, but in greater num bets are those who can and wont These and these alone, can be blamed for the situation. To which of these groups do you belong? There i s more than enough delinquent tax now due the school to pay off every one of those outstanding vouchers, but t ds, seemingly, cannot be col- lected because these folks refuse to entertain the proper spirit. The Board of Trustees has been very lenient all along in the col- lection of taxes, in fact entirely too much so, and as the result the situation is steadily growing worse. The time is rapidly ap- proachingwhen the tax books will have to be carried to the courts in order to collect the one tax that the people of this, or any other community, should be willing and glad to pay. If your taxes have not yet been paid, wont you make arrange- monte immediately to get your recmpt and thus help the school to clear its indebtedness before the beginning of the new term? children and there is no better school than you have now. The very least you can do is to pay your taxes. THE County Judge has ordered that the vote on county local op- tion be held on August 26th. the same day the prohibition ques- tion is settled by the State elec- tion. This action will settle the issue in the county with no out- lay of expense, as both elections may be held by the same clerks at the same time. Otherwise the local option clause will ne- cessitate a special election that wJuld have to be paid for out of county funds. EVen though both county and State are voted 'wet' in the August election, it will still be illegal to sell beer in the county by reason of the fact that the county went dry by precincts before prohibition was voted by the county as a whole. Judge Ballow may, upon request, call for a precinct election in any or all precincts in the county, to be also held on August 26th. and thereby settle the whole thing at once without additional expense. It is likely that a good many such requests will be made pry- or to the 26th. I YEARS "IN THE LIGNITE CITY" I S. L. Boyett has been electedl as a delegate to the District Con- ference at Alto.

One was the Columbus cele- bration in Chicago, in 1893, and the Centennial, tn Philadelphia. in 187~. Besides these this country has had a number of smaller, special exposi- ttons such as the Trans-Mississippl, at Omaha in 1898, the Pan-Americm in Buffalo tn 1901. the Jamestown, 1907; Seattle, 1909: San Diego, 1912: nnd San Francisco In 1915. World's fairs were held every 10 years In Paris In the latter part of the last century. Figure "a" on Globe, Doubtless many wire look at mapped globes are puzzled a~ the dth. gram resembling the figure "8" ex- tending from the Tropic of Cancer down to the Tropic of Capricorn. This figure Is known as the "analemma" and Is used to determine the place where the sun's rays fall vertically on the earth any time of the year. As the sun never is overhead except in the tropics, the anatemma extends only within that belt. The diagram also Is used to find the difference be- tween the sun or solar time and local or clock time, termed the "equatlon of time." Idandmagee lslandmagee is a peninsula rather thatL ,,r. ~land. not far from I.arne In Ulster, Ireland, and was anciently the home of the Magees, and on it are curious stone remains of prehistoric times. The Gobbins are both cliffs off the eastern shore, which In recent years have been opened to the pub- lie, as before they could only be seen from the sea, Their vast preci- pices hold the secret of many a leg- end. and men have been hurled from the top of them. They are penetrated by many eaves and rocks that provide homes for large flocks of seablrds. Depth oE Great Lakes Lake Superior is the deepest of the lakes, most of it being more than 600 feet, while Lake Erie's maximum depth is 210 feet. The greatest depth of Lake Superior is 1,209 feet, about twenty miles off Otter Head, Ontario. Lake Erie's maximum depth is fonnd In a five-mile area, near Long Point, Ontario. Its average depth Is about 60 feet. The deepest soundings In feet of the other Great Lakes are: Michigan, 932; Huron. 750; Ontario, 738. Revere Church Bell Eor $1,300 A rare church bell cast by Paul Re- vere brought $1,300 at an auction in Boston, where a number of other early American relics were sohl.

Washington.--The congressman vot- ing through a big appropriation bill glibly refers ~o them as "'the perma- nents and indefinltes." They don't ap- pear in the regular tabulation of ap- propriations for the coming year as reported by the house and senate ap- propriations committee, says the Chi- cago Tribui~e. Yet they are going to cost the-tax. payer this year the sum of $1,285,191,- 028 and in the next fiscal year.of 1934 the bill will be $113,345,553 larger, or $1,398,536.581. They are indeed the "permanents and indefinites." for they are the ap- propriations which go on year after year on the strength of some past leg- islation and without the necessity of any annual affirmative action such as Is required to authorize payment of the regular current appropriations. The biggest permanent and indefi- nite items by far in these years of a public debt of more than $20.000,000,- 000 are the $725,000,000 to be re- quired in 1934 to pay interest on the deht and the $534,000,000 required to he written on the books as the annual contribution to the sinking fund es- tablis'hed under the Liherty loan acts. Some Cost Nothing. Other items, unlike most items In approi)rlation bills, cost the treasury nothing. Such a one is tile $71.000,000 to be taken from premiums on con- verted veterans' insurance and which are set aside for payment of losses and benefits in 1934. Then there are the incomes from va- rious gifts and donations to govern- ment and social enterprises which must be distributed each year. There are revenues from public lands and na- tional forests and Indian reservations, These may be tlistributed to states to compensate for taxes lost through be- ing host to nontaxable government property and enterprises. In a~ditlon to these forms of perma- nent and indefinite appropriations, there are appropriations that go on and on Just because their backers were once upon a time legislatively clever enough to get them put in this privi- leged class of government expendi- tures. There they hide, year after year be- the ranch of economy drives. They are "sehlom heard of. They sllp through congress unquestioned and unpruned. Only a repeal of the orig- inal authorizing act can touch them. A speclal house committee in the last congress was delegated to search out these hidden appropriations and drag them into the light. As chair- man Anthony J. Griffin of New York explained in his report at the close of the session, he and his committee trod been too busy passing annual ap- propriations to do anything much in the way of cutting the permanent ones. At least tttey performed the service of getting these appropriations out in a group where they could be seen and considered and the ground work was lald for hearings at which department heads may be summoned, in Mr. Grif- fin's words, "to show cause, if any, why the permanent appropriations over which they have Jurisdlctlon should not be repealed or converted to the status of regular annual ap- propriations so as to be annually sub- Ject to examination and review." Might Review Some Expenses. More titan $60.000,000 of the perma- nen~ and indefinite sums annually ex- pended might so be reviewed and the department heads who spend the money made to show cause why it should not be put on an annual basis. In the economy amendment added to the 1934 post office and treasury ap- propriation bill an attempt was made to bring the permanents and indefi- nates into line by a simple order that all such appropriations should here- after be on an annual basis. But be- fore the bill reached its final approval tha~ order was stricken out. There is, for example, the perma- nent approprlation--in the sum of $6,636,460 for 1934--to be paid out in state subsidies for vocational educa- tion. Part of it goes to pay teachers of agricultural subjects, part to teach- ers of industrial subjects and home economies, and part-to that happy body of bureaucrats, the federal board for vocational education. Another permanent appropriation the $3,000,000 for meat inspection by the bureau of animal lndustr~. N~ body knows why thls service should be placed in the permanent category. All In all, there are promising pa~. tures for an economy committee to graze In in the field of the "perrm. nents and Indefinites."
