I \X .IDUCTrf ION
Aunouncement from Columbia that
IeTC)itumeildations.. will be miiade to the
legislature' looki ng toward a reditc
tion of the state levy from 12 to S mills,
or by one-third, does not mean that
the tax burden will be materially de
creIsed. The state tax levy is hut a
smll1 part of the entire levy, eiher in
the cities or riural disitricts.
The tax levy in the City (if Laurtells
this year, counting state, county, city
and .;ecial school distriet, was 6' 1 -2;
mills. Should the state levy be re
duedl ImilLs, tie total red uction from
1t 1-2 would be neglisible.
With this inlformaltion before uls, w,!
can plainly 'tee that our liol foi Ie
ductioL in tle t ax burden nui ni ot rt*t
in Ct olumi,[a. \\e msti look n ar
home for relief if we think we want
it. The Advertiser thinks, though,
that 1. blen the Iwople collie to reaize
that a conid ble r1)t ( of tlie tax1
biurdeni is fori education of teir own
children , ratihecir than for adinistra
tion expenises at Columbia, they will
hesitate a long tiline before thinkiig
of a ieulC('tIo of lie levy.
