was the original Woodrow Wil

N OW is the winter of our dis

strawberry, Would we could

and deliciousness on these islands
We have picked the strawberry
in Pennsylvania, we have grown
them in lowa, we have hought
them in the Black Hills of S. D.
and we have sold them in the
state of Idaho—but these islands
is the first place we have eaten
them. Elsewhere they appealed
to us as sour, seeded, hard-cored
colicky things which had to he
endured, like any other evil, for
a few days each season. But
Jimminy crickeis—the berries
that grow here are as much above

if you want the humming-bird |
tongues of Bean Brummell beat
forty rods, just select about a
dozen of the wormal Vashon
Maury berrvies, Pile them in a
pyramid, the base resting on a
seven inch plate, Let the pow

and canyons, like snow settling |
over the erown of *““l'he Moun- |

mountain streams of pure Jorsoy'
cream flowing down from the top
of your pyramid to its base—
shut yourt eyes and open your
mouth and drop one in, and Mil

P. S.—Use only the Vashon-
Maury grown berries, for the
best results.

Gentlemen: I am firmly con
vinced that the, fundamental
principal in taxation is equaliza
tion of tax burden; and that the
matter of high taxes and low
taxes has little, if anything, to
do with systems of taxation.
Fvery government, state and
governmental agency having the
authority to dispense public funds
and power to levy taxes, is con
trolled in fixing the amount of
its tax levy by the amount of
funds necessary to defray the ex
penses. In other words, the only
way to reduce taxes is to reduce
public expenditures.
With our many new gbvern
mental functions and numerous
disbursing and tax levying
agencies, the tax burden in this
state has become almost unbear
With a view of striking at the
root of this matter, [ desire to
meet in conference with all of
you, or your selected representa
tives, at the Executive Office in
Olympia at 1:00 o’clock p. m. on
Monday, June 20th, 1921, in an
endeavor to climinate the unnee
essary expense and particularly
all avoidable expenditures from
next year’s budget, so that every
county, city, school district and
other tax levying agenecy may be
able to make some reduction in
the levy for next year’s taxes.
We are striving in this state
to eliminate expenditnres so as
to insure a very material de
crease in the state general fund
tax levy; and if we can make a
corresponding decrease in all of
the tax levies we may be able to
satisfy the public that their con
fidence in us has not been mis
placed and that we are respon.
sive to publiec demands.
Sincerely trusting that a good
ly number may be able to meet
me in Olympia on Monday, the
20th inst., 1 am,
Sincerely yours,
Louis I. Hart, Governor.
