The Advertiser )opes that the small
appropriation provided by the delega
tion will not plrevelt this county from
securing the services of a farm. demon
strator. Our belief in the matter Is
that it would be far better to wipe out
the entire rural police system of the
county than to lose the services of an
eicient farm dlemonstration depart
ment at this time. One determined
(eputy sheriff, providedl he had the
backing of Juries, judges and public
'which is now lacking, could keep the
liquor making and litiuor dealing down,
but no amount of law can take the
qiace of the information and leader
s-hi') which the (lemonstration depart
ment stands for.

Proposed in Bill Now Before Legle I
At a meeting of the Laurens Busi
ness League bold in the Peoples Loan

ternoon protest was voiced against the
proposed income and excess profilts tax
for South Carolina. The protest was
made following the receipt of a tele

the South Carolina taxpayers associa
tion explaining the provisions of the,
The bill as it is before the finance
committee of the Senate provides for'
an income tax of 25 per cent and in
some cases of 100 per cent of the fed
eral income tax. If passed and enact
ed into law it would seriously cripple
'South Carolina industries and injury
to the industries in the state means
hardships on the people, according to
claims made by the South Carolina
The Business League heartily in
dorsed the South Carolina Taxpayers
Association in its opposition to the bill
and in its efforts to show at the heiVr

trotis effect such a law would have.
The telegram from Mr. Coker was I

Our people will have to rely more up- r

the past: if industries, are discour

not have your body pass a resolution s
protesting a:aainst the ))ending bill and
endorsing the bill advocated by the
taxpayers association which is not to -
exceed 10 per cent of the amount of .
fedleral income tax. The state taxliay

not to exceed 10 per cent of the fed- 1

If the state taxpayers association is to
carry out their program we must have j
