It will draw people. Where people come there is prosperity. It doe. not take money, something that is scarcer, cooperation. It takes It takes Lot's develop the Town Nerve.

Catting Taxation Id an editorial about this mat ter of taxation which is the incu bus hanging heavily around the necks of the smallest to the largest tax payer today, The States com mends that one point made by Gilbert Dupre, perennial crusader for economy in government, in a recent letter to the press as excel lent and agrees as we all do, that that the. Governor and Legisla ture are under an obligation to protect the people by changing the Constitution so that if special taxes are voted, they will not be as oppressive as they now are. Mr, Dupre's plan is to put a limitation on the pyramiding of assessments as resiiects local taxa tion and make it impossible to levy beyond fifty per cent of value. In their era of prosperity, the people of Louisiana voted prompt ly for all amendments and special taxes which looked to relief of classes and improvements. But they could not foresee the after math, the hard times which fol lowed the war and they are now entitled to every possible govern mental relief to the easing of their condition. The Governor standing by and letting his constitutional conven tion raise salaries to the extent of hundreds of thousands of dollars sidesteps the situation by saying that the state only gets a limited portion to the enormous tax bill which Louisiana pays. But the Governor cannot afford to be neutral in a crisis like this. He must take one side or the other and obviously he must take the side of the suffering farmers of the country and the urban and rural merchants who are the vic tims of national depression, If the Dupre ameudment is not, a «option it is up to the Governor himself not only to do something in the direction of State economy, but to eyolve some measure by which the crushed tax payers of the country can get relief by Community Welfare Mrs Af'euuu, president^ 7 »XI >L> U ntv^y . - — the I Curb Market, Publie Playground, I Community House, Garbage, I Mosquito, and other important public interests, all of which are I busily outlining tested plansas in Ito have tîiem ready to su bmit to amuse toeall|Moaday March 27 at;4 p. m. - The day the League was organ 2T,' J■ U"T* ized, a representative of each de ; - # ^ - . -«V nomination was appointed to ip* ve on a public health committee and later two more from each were | asked to serve as committees of three which have been busily at I work ever since, and outlined a I much needed program which ' wil J be faithfully carried ont.
