HOLD BACK CITY BUDGETS UNTIL ASSEMBLY ENDS Officials Refuse to Move for Fear of Further Legis tive Acts. Plan of submitting a tentative 1933 civil city budget to city council Monday night, today had been abandoned by city officials, in view of uncertainty of possible legislative action before close of the special session next Monday night. Mayor Reginald H. Sullivan and City Controller William L. Elder have been working on the budget several weeks and for the last sev eral days have been in conference almost constantly with department heads considering ways and means of slashing the budget. Decision to wait until after the legislature adjourns in order to be able to submit a budget complying legislative action was reached today, when it was found a special meeting could be held a week later to receive the budget and permit ample time for the required legal advertising. ‘ There is no use in submitting a budget blindly, when the legis lature, in half an hour, can upset all we have done in weeks,” Sulli van said. He pointed out that the $1.50 maximum levy law, if it is not re pealed or modified, virtually will mean a two-thirds reduction in the city levy, „unless the county adjust mint board set up by the law sees fit to permit an increased maximum in the county. “The $1.35 total levy left, after : the state is given 15 cents,” the mayor said, “would give the civil cily probably a 50-cent levy, com pared with the present SI.OB levy, but heavy reduction in the Center township assessed valuation would cut down still further the city's ac tual receipts from taxation.” If the city were held to its actual Bhare of the $1.50 total levy, it was pointed out, the result might be forced closing of most city depart ments.

They Style Their Own Imogene Taylor (left) and Lucille Morris, both of Greenwood, wearing dresses which they displayed in the 4-H Club exhibit in the agricultural building at the state fairground Thursday. Miss Morris’ entray won for her the grand championship in clothing. THE modern young man of the rural communities, when he goes a-wooing, asks one question before he becomes serious in his suit for the hand of any girl. The interrogation is: “Are you a 4-H Club member?” The answer is vital. If the girl is a member of the organization, the suitor is assured that she can cook, sew;, and exhibit originality and taste in all her activities. The girls shown above took, part in the exhibition of clothing, food preparation, and canning which was sponsored by the county 4-H Clubs at the fairground. The ex- THE INDIANAPOLTS TIMES LEGISLATURE CROPES VAINLY AT TAXIRELIEF Session Near End and Goal Still Far Away; Revenue Measures Blocked. With less than three days re maining of the special session, it appeared today that the legislature will adjourn Monday without hav ing reached its tax relief goal. From the few laws enacted in the last thirty-seven days, it appeared the state government alone will suf fer, because of the $1.50 tax limit statute. Although several revenue-raising measures, were advanced at the be ginning of the session to distribute the tax burden, it is likely all these proposals will fall into the waste basket when the adjournment gavel falls. County, city and township units will have an “out” from the re strictions of the $1.50 tax limit law, but its provision for a maximum 15- cent state levy is inflexible. Must' Borrow Money Thus the state must function on borrowed money until the tax limit law is repealed or amended by an other legislature. Counties may exceed the $1.35 limit provision by declaring an emergency and appropriating funds to cover expenses. One hope of increasing revenues remains before adjournment in the pari-mutuel bill, legalizing betting on horse races, passed by the house and awaiting vote of the senate. Under its provisions, tax would be levied on racing and betting, but the amount of revenue it will raise is problematical. Tax Bill Dying Outstanding accomplishment of the session is the state budget trim ming bill, now awaiting signature of Governor Harry G. Leslie, fol lowing passage in the house Thursday. A total of $1,672,615 was pared from the expenses of state depart ments and institutions. Total of $12,109,822 was appropri- Magic Sheik 103* Year-Old Arabian Prince Having Time of Life in New York. By L nitcd Brets NEW YORK, Aug. 12.—Sheik Hadji Tabor Ben Mohamed Iben Soud Cheriff is in town, and having the time of his 103-year old life. His wife, the last of five, is back in his native Arabia. And the sheik, who also bears the title of prince of Yemen, is swinging high, wide and handsome on his ‘ bachelor” tour. Hadji Taber Ben Mohamed Iben Soud Cheriff announces he is go ing to Chicago to build an Oriental city for the world’s fair. After the fair is over, he in tends to pick up the city and transport it to Jamaica Bay, N. Y., there, the sheik says, he will cre ate a permanent Oriental town for American Orientals. This feat of Arabian Nights magic will be simple for the sheik. “I had a daughter bom to me when I was 80,” he explains with pride. ated in the bills for defraying ex penses of the next fiscal year, as compared to the 1931 appropriation of $13,782,437. Another tax relief point passed is the gas tax and license fund di version bills, increasing shares of cities and towns in the $25,000,00G fund one-fourth, and reducing the state highway commission’s share in th? same amount. Another is the suspension for five years of issuance of bonds for coun ty unit roads, a sister law to an other new statute transferring all township roads to the county. The 2-cent levy for building funds of state universities and normal schools was repealed. Aside from the tax question, the special session passed a bill provid ing that municipalities may acquire utilities by bond issue, to be retired out of earnings. Proponents of the measure declared it the chief ac complishment of the session. /pIIIII ... jbM wmt iIMR IMii H HfflHHl.
