PUBLIC SCHOOLS NEED HELP IMMEDIATELY To the tax payers of Marion coun ty; According to figures compiled by Prof. Joseph Roemer, of the Univer sity of Florida, the public spirited citizens of Florida raised last year br Dublic subscription $200,000, in or- der to keep open the public schools of the state. By "passing the hat" Pinel las county raised $40,000: Hillsboro county, $15,000; Putnam county, $6, 000; Gainesville, $12,500; New Smyr na, $5,000, and so on. Here in Marion county, it will not be necessary for us to make such do nations, but it is necessary, in order to. maintain our schools, that our people should pay their taxes and pay them promptly. Right now our board is faced with obligations which should be met this month, amounting to $31,975. This amount is made up of several items, the principal one being the amount borrowed to run our schools until 1921 taxes should come in. Many thou sands of dollars due for 1921 taxes have not been paid Other unus ual items of expense incurred during the last, fiscal year were, the payment of maturing obligations of several years' standing and the purchase of school property and construction of new buildings. Then too, the increase in pupils fori the school year 1921- 22 was about seven times as great as the previous year. This necessitated larger than ordinary expenditures for teachers, transportation, etc Until the before mentioned $31,975 obligation due on account of last years' budget is paid, the board is prohibited by law from borrowing funds to take care of the curren years' expenses. Urdinariiy taxes are not paid promptly, hence the board is compelled to borrow money to finance the schools until the bulk of the taxes come in towards the last of the year. Why not save the amount the Board is compelled to expend each year for interest on borrowed funds by paying your taxes promptly? With the co-operation of many pub lic spirited citizens, patrons . of our public school and non-patrons, we are urging our people to pay their taxes this month, thereby securing for them selves a 2 discount and, of even greater importance, enabling our schools to continue to function. Many tax payers to whom the sit uation has been carefully explained have agreed to pay at once. Through courtesy of the Star, we expect to re port each day during November the amount paid the previous day, with balance still due, to wipe out the emergency deficit. We ask the support of all -patriotic, public spirited citizens, in this cam paign to "Pay Taxes in November," thus relieving the acute situation which now confronts your board, act ing for our Marion county boys and girls our greatest asset. Respectfully, W. T. Gary, Chairman, H. G. Shealy, Secretary, Marion County Board of Publje In struction.
