TAXATION PROBLEMS Many Want to Discontinue Prop erty Taxes and Substi tute Sales Levy Salt Lake City, July I.—(jp)—Prob lems of state taxation, which occupied a large share of the opening day’s sessions of the national governors’ conference, held a prominent place on today’s program. Sentiment for the ultimate discon tinuance of property taxes for the support of state government and sub stitution of sales or other excise taxes, was developed from the round table discussion that followed an address by Gov. William G. Conley of West Virginia. Governor Conley’s explanation of the operation of the gross sales tax of his state was followed by a lively interchange among the governors present. That sales tax should be in lieu of a property tax, and not in addition to an ad valorem levy, was the position of Gov. L. G. Hardman of Georgia, who said a proposed constitutional amendment in his state would with draw the ad valorem tax from its present level of 5 mills to a minimum of 1 mill. Some skepticism among the gover nors as to the probable attitude of legislatures toward the proposition of abolishing the ad valorem property tax for support of state government was voiced by Governor Theodore E. Christianson and was concurred in by other speakers.

Soviet Cleaning Up Asiatic Plague Spot Bokhara, Uzbekistan.—(A*)— This ancient city, whose swjanps, stagnant pools and polluted water supply made it for centuries one of the plague spots of Asia, is being cleaned up by the soviet government. Enormous tanks, eievated on steel skeletons, are replacing the old sur face reservoirs where, for a thousand years, the natives not only drew their drinking water, but bathed and washed their clothes. A new drainage system is being in stalled which, it is hoped, will make the pernicious disease known as “Bokhara Button’’ a thing of the past. Street sprinkling is still done by carriers who squirt water from pig skins. Eventually these relics of the past are also due to disappear. Water is precious in this arid part of Central Asia. Housewives carry pitchers and jugs to the nearest water station and buy it by the quart or gallon as if it were milk or wine. The price is 10 kopecks a gallon, and while this figures roughly as equivalent to a nickel, coins are none too plentiful and water is a top item in household budgets. WOMEN EXPATRIATES GIVEN CONCESSIONS Americans Married to Aliens May Retain Their Citizenship With Less Trouble Now Washington, July l.—(/P) —An or ganized femininity, estimated as 500,- 000 strong, today fired off figurative cannon crackers of jubilation for the increased independence of women. They celebrated the long-fought-for passage of the Cable bill, relieving American-born women married to aliens from the necessity of involved naturalization proceedings to regain their citizenship. The new Cable bill, an amendment to the Cable act of 1922, strikes out the presumption that a native-born woman loses her American citizenship by residence abroad after her mar riage to an alien. It provides for re patriation by simple affirmation, in stead of requiring residence in the United States for a year, declaration of Intention to reside here permanent ly, and posting of the name for 90 days. Under its provisions, native-born women would not be required to take the same searching examination and naturalization process as is required of a foreign-born alien. It would per mit a native-born woman who had lost her citizenship by marriage to an alien to return to the United States outside the immigration quota.
