Statement Claims Money

On tlio ground that the. proposed
Section -A, Artlolo 10, amendment
to the Oklahoma stato constitution
would cause n serious financial loss
to nil cities In tlio jtHtn without re
lieving tlio general situation to any
mensurable extent, tlio Tulsa school
board I waging an onargalla fight
ngalnst Its ratification In the general
election on November 2.
J. If. llrown, n school principal,
representing tho hoard In thin mat
ter, has prepared tlio following con
clso slatomant covering tho proposed
Amendment nnd tho objections
Tho nmendinenl provides that tho
lltnto Hoard of MiiunllKnUon shall
lovy nimuiilly a tux of not lew than
( imIIIh nnd not mora than 10 mill"
on nil taxablo property within tho
Thin lax I to ho paid Into tho
Common Hchool fund of tho Mate
t In to ho apportioned to tho school
districts on tho basis of school
It doc not rellovo tho need for
moro money In running tho school
In n largo numlicr of tho cities of
tho state, slnco they will loso money
by Its enactment
It encourages Indifference, on the
part of tho people who aro rontonl
with tho minimum educational ad
antagrs, nlnco n largo number of
rural districts will not bo ablo to
opornto on tho 0 mill lovy.
Tho wealthy, progressive dlBtrlcta
will pay tho hulk of tho taxes under
thin proportion and at tho snmo
tlmo tnx themselves to the consti
tutional limit (IB mills) for local
It places too much taxing power
In tho hands of a hoard of men who
nro not responsible to ttsj people
Tho Btato Superintendent of 1'uh
Ho Instruction may exorcise too
muc.lt taxing power,
Tho principle of nelf-support, solf
taxation, nnd self-government In
educational niattrrB Is destroyed.
Forty-ono of tho 77 countlos In
Oklahoma will loso money that
properly belongs to tho schools of
tho counties so effected.
A largo number of school districts
would find tholr school tax practi
cally doubled If thn amendment
should curry Take Tulsa county an
nn example; 19 school districts In
tho county nro nhlo to opera's tholr
schools on less than 6 mills.
Tho following Is n concrete Illus
tration of tho unfairness of such
measure: Tulsn county would loso
approximately $225,000, Tulsa city
$170,000, Cilonpool $17,000, Jmiks
$20,000, Okmulgcn $2R.O0O, Musko
