Total 5.79 mills $5,819,449
Figures for the state tax levy for
1912, given out by the state board of
equalization upon completion of their
labors, show a total levy for state
purposes of 5.79 mills, which raise a
total of $5,819,499, while the state
is shown to have entered the billion
dollar class on assessed valuations,
the total being $1,005,086,251 for
both real and personal property. As
the average ratio of assessed to actu H
valuation for the state is found by thi
state board to be 42.41 per cent, this
would indicate the taxable property
in the state of Washington has
reached an actual valuation of $2,
--500,000,000 in round numbers. La.<t.
year the total assessed valuation wa3
Assessed valuation totals hats
been arrived at by the state board as
While the levy of 5.79 mills is an
increase of .76 of a mill over the
3 911 levy of 5.03 mills, this is occa
sioned by the new legislative pro
vision requiring a fixed levy of .5 of
a mill for the public highway fund,
and providing fixed levies for the
state educational institutions, instead
of making appropriations for the edu
cational institutions from the general
fund. The fixed levy, totalling 1.05
mills, gives these institutions more
than they would have gotten undo*,
lhe old system. Other than, in the
respects the- levy for this year would
be in effect a slight reduction from
last year in tax rate.
The general fund, reduced by ex
clusion of educational Institutions
has a levy of 1.23 mills, producing
$1,236,25 6. Last year the general
fund levy was 2.10 mills.
The school fund levy is 1.90 mills
producing $1,909,664, and with the
1.05 for the state institutions of
higher education, producing $1,055,
341; makes a total of 2.95 mills and
$2,965,055 for educational purposes.
The permanent highway fund of 1
mill, which takes the place of the oh!
state aid road fund, producing $1.
--005,086 and the levy of one-half mM
for the public highway producing
$502,543, makes a total road levy of
1.50 mills producing $1,507,629 for
road purposes. This shows thai 75
per cent of all state taxes goes for
roads and educational purposes, and
the money collected therefore by the
state is returned to the counties and
the institutions. All the revenues of
the permanent highway fund are ap
portioned directly among tha
counties, the full amount each pays
in, so the state acts merely as collec
lion agent. Formerly the counties
had to raise an amount equal to what
ever they received from the state.
Now the whole amount is covered in
the state levy.
The total levy of 1.05 mills for the
slate educational institutions, is seg
regated, under legislative provision,
as follows: University of Washing
ton, .475 mills; state College, Pull
man, .325 mills; Bellingham normal,
.09 mills; Cheney normal, .09 mills,
Ellensburg normal, .07 mills.
This year the state board, on show

SCORE CARD FOR POTATO CONTESTS
A number of schools and counties are holding potato contests this year
and have asked for assistance in making their awards. To help them in
this respect and to make the work more uniform Professor O. M. MorrU
