Taxation Rates
Are Released By
County Treasurer
Noble County Treasurer Ira Pry
or has released the rates of taxa
tion on all property in this county
for 1946, representing the number
of mills to be levied on each dollar
of property for taxation purposes.
There are 59 various taxing units
in this county and in each instance
the county levy will be 4.80 mills.
The variation in the total mills for
taxation is noted in the township,
school, and corporation levy.
The largest increase in taxation
for any one unit is the corporation
of Batesville, which jumped from
20.00 mills to 27.50 mills This in
crease was voted by the people of
Batesville at the November elec
tion and will be used for operating
expenses within the village.
Other increases in the school
levy resulted from special issues
voted on in November for the pur
pose of increased maintenance of
schools or the construction of new
buildings.
The lowest total levy listed is
10.00 mills for Aurelius school dis
trict in Jefferson township. It is
one of the many over-lapping
school districts in Noble county,
this particular one extending into
Washington county.
The average total levy in the
county is 17.00 and 17.50 mills for
taxation purposes.
The lowest corporation levy will
be found at Sarahsville, which is
listed at 1.50 mills. The highest is
Batesville which is 8.50 mills or
one-half mill higher than Caldwell.
Dexter City is 3.20 mills, Belle
Valley 5.30 mills, and Summerfeld
4.50 mills.
The highest township levy is
found in Olive at 3.10 mills, but
the average for the county is 2.00
mills. The greatest variation may
be found in the various school dis
tricts, ranging from 3.00 to 14.70
mills.
The tax books are now closed
and the distribution of taxes col
lected for the last half of 1945 has
been completed by Auditor McVay.
The political sub-divisions in the
county have received their checks
in various amounts.
The new tax will represent the
first half of 1946 on real estate and
fhould be completed in February.
This is always the biggest collec
tion for the year.

H. C. Jordan Buys Chas. W. Hawkins Store
In Caldwell With Immediate Possession
H. C. Jordan, well known manager
of the Chas. W. Hawkins store in
Caldwell for the past ten years, has
purchased the mercantile business
from the former owner and posses
sion was given, Wednesday, Jan. 1.
The new owner stated today that
the policy of the store would con
tinue as in the past and no immed
iate changes were contemplated.
Mr. Jordan came to Caldwell in
Dec. 1936 to assume management of
this store for Chas. W. Hawkins. He
and his wife and daughter, Linda,
live on a farm just south of Cald
well. Both are well and prominently
known in this community. Prior to
coming to Caldwell, the new owner
was employed with the S. S. Kresge
company for eight years.
The sale includes only the store
and equipment in Caldwell. The
Chas. W. Hawkins store in Cumber
land will continue under the former
ownership. Mr. Hawkins is also pres
ident of the bank in Cumberland
and his many duties there made it
impossible for him to manage the
Caldwell store.
Caldwell’s new business man is
also a native of the Cumberland
community. Mrs. Jordan is the for
mer Adaline Fleming of Marietta.
They are receiving the best
wishes of their many friends for
continued success in the future man

Statistics Show Cost Of
Living Up 18 Percent
Washington, Jan. 1—A new gov
ernment price survey—showing an
18 percent rise in living costs for
1946—was thrust today into the
wage-profit debate raging as a pre
lude to 1947 wage disputes.
The report was released by the
Bureau of Labor Statistics while
the National Association of Manu
facturers prepared a full-dress re
ply to a CIO survey claiming busi
ness can raise wages 25 percent
without raising prices.
The effect of rising prices on the
real income of workers was a
major argument in the CIO survey,
which was prepared to support de
mand for wage increases. The BLS
report did not touch on business
profits, which were given much at
tention in the CIO analysis.

Six Hot Lunch
Projects Set Up
In Noble County
Mrs. Margaret Donohoo, home
demonstration agent in Noble
county for the past two and one
half years, has completed her an
nual report and it was submitted
this week to state headquarters in
Columbus.
Mrs. Donohoo pointed out that
all the objectives set up for the
program for 1946 were met with
the exception that radio was not
used as frequently as the agent
had planned.
Six hot lunch centers were es
tablished in Noble county schools
during 1946, the agent cooperating
with the Farm Bureau and parents
in the various schools. This one
project alone affects several hun
dred school children throughout
the county
The major portion of the agent’s
time was spent on adult work in
the field of house furnishings and
surroundings. There were 342 dif
ferent women who attended the
project meetings on refinishing
furniture. This work was con
ducted on 19 communities.
One garden club was organized
in Beaver township with 12 mem
bers. They held their organization
meeting in July and have met reg
ularly once a month since.
There were 36 women who at
tended the sewing machine clinics
and 25 machines were cleaned and
adjusted.
Evaluation devices were sent to
300 homemakers who had attended
meetings on time management in
1945. Of this number, 133 replied
they were using the devices men
tioned.
Two county-wide meetings were
conducted on toy making with a
total attendance of 50. On other
community activities, the agent
spent 5.1 percent of her time. This
included farmers’ institutes, grange
and farm bureau meetings, assist
ing federal agences, collecting of
clothing for overseas relief and the
S. C. S. in planning tours.
Mrs. Donohoo pointed out that
many of the wives of ex-service
men are beginning to show an in
terest in better methods of home
making. In filling such requests,
the agent has the opportunity of
reaching a group of younger
women.
Of the total 226,762 acres of farm
land in the county, 196,847 acres
are owned by the operators. The
remainder or 29,915 acres are
rented.
Implements and machinery on
598 farms which reported for the
1945 census are valued at $416,985
as compared to $370,253 in 1940.
Since Noble county is a hilly
county, the use of several types of
machinery is difficult.
Twenty-two farms reported hav
ing hired workers to assist with
farm work. The remainder of the
work was done by operators and
unpaid members of their families.

the Free Methodist church in

NUMBER 25
Local Teachers
Will Receive
Increased Pay
Pay Hikes To $800
Insured By Revision
Of School Program
Columbus, Jan. 1 (Ohio Press)
—Teachers in the public schools of
Caldwell and Noble county would
be insured of an annual minimum
salary of $2,000 by revision of Ohio’s
school foundation law to provide
$33,000,000 more a year in state aid
to schools.
Teacher pay hikes of $400 to $800
per year would be made possible by
proposed foundation law changes
adopted by the representative as
sembly of the Ohio Education Asso
ciation which met here in the Desh
ler-Wallick hotel last week.
The assembly, composed of dele
gates each representing 100 of the
state’s 42,000 teachers, also endorsed
a proposal for a 30 percent increase
in state foundation funds for the
first six months of 1947.
Following the trend of a favorable
public response to their plight, th®
teachers upped the OEA proposal
announced last month by approx
imately 50 percent.
How much this increased proposal
would mean for the Caldwell schools
has not been figured as yet by the
OEA.
However, the original OEA pro
posal would have given the Cald
well schools $15,000 more in state
aid and the assembly voted an over
all 50 percent increase.
The Caldwell schools now get
$32,773 in state aid from the state
foundation program.
The minimum salary, the assem
bly stipulated, should be fixed by
statute, and applicable only to the
teachers with standard teaching
certificates, described as “four-year
provisional certificates or better."
After spirited debate on the floor
of the assembly, proposals for $2400
and $2200 minimum salaries and
two foundation laws revisions,
backed by big-city delegates, which
would have cost $95,000,000 and
$100,000,000 were defeated.
Schools now get $59,000,000 a year
state aid. The new plan would give
Ohio schools $92,000,000. The plan
sets a foundation figure for each
elementary pupil at $109 per year,
and $131 for each high school stu
dent.
The state’s poorer districts were
given a slight edge in that the ratio
of equalization and flat distribution
was made 60 percent instead of the
traditional two-thirds.
The proposals will be presented
to the 97th General Assembly by
the OEA which serves as the school
lobby.
Meanwhile, the estimated 570
delegates elected H. F. Vallance, di
rector of Miami University’s place
ment bureau, association president
He succeeds James M. Turner,
superintendent of McConnelsville
schools.
Delegates from Noble county were
Wallace Blake, representing the
Noble county schools, Byron W.
Steen and Supt. H. C. Secrest repre
senting the Caidwell schools.
Western Union Rates
Are Increased Here
The Federal communications com
mission has authorized the Western
Union telegraph company to in
crease its present message charges

It approved for an indefinite per
iod an increase of 20 percent above

a 10 percent increase was granted.
The Western Union office in Cald
well is located at the Pennsylvania
railroad depot on Main street and

W. Robinson.
The new rates were to be effect
