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
Governor Conley’s explanation of
the operation of the gross sales tax
of his state was followed by a lively
interchange among the governors
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.

New Iso-Vis answers more closely than any

Back of this improved motor oil is a new refining

contrast with most other oils, contains no undis

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
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
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.

snipped off the tail of a cat is told

with surgical precision,
i The farmer and his wife saw the
strange occurrence and rushed out to
help the frantic cat, but it fled Into a
