COUNCIL TO LEVY
i TAX RATE MONDAY
Indications Are Rate Will
Not Rite, Despite Shrink,
age In Values
Th* tax rate for the city of Hen
derson Is to be levied by the City
Council at its monthly meeting next
Monday evening, and Information to
day was that there was no likelihood
now of any increase in the rate. While
the “property valuation* given In dur
ing the annual listing* in April and
May have not been tabulated in final
form aa yet, it Is believed certain that
the total will show a datable decrease
from 1931. If. in the face of such con
ditions as that, the ral»* can be held
down to what it was la-t year, it will
bo considered equivalent to a decrease
in taxes for depressed property. The
1931 tax rate for the city was $1.20
per SIOO valuation.
The city last year had a total of
around ss.<*oo uncollected taxes at the
close of th« fiscal year June 30, but
some of this has been collected down
since that time and still more is ex
pected to be collet te t later.
A saving on sum' budget items last
year more than offset the insolxent
itst and every effort is being made
to make curtailments in the coming
year The tentative budget wus be
fore the Council at its July meeting
a month ago when if wa3 left open
for public inspection in the city
clerks office. It was understood to
day that some further reductions
from the tentative figures would pro
bably be made, nnd this would likely
make it possible for a slight scaling
In the rate, except for the decline in

School Budget Outlined
In Statement About Fund
Covert All White and Color ed Schools of City and
County, And Reasons tor Each Increase Are Set
Forth; Says Reduction* Have Been Made
A statement outlining the 1932-33
school budget has been prepared by
E. M. Rollins, city-county superinten
dent. and was made available today
for publication. It is explained that
the summary covers city and rural,
white and colored schools, “showing
appropriations for 1931-32, the request
for 1932-33, the increase in each ob
ject for 1932-33, and the case of each
Increase."
Reasons for i&e increase in the new
budget are set forth as follows:
“First There are approximately $20,-1
000 In notes outstanding against the
1931-32 budget which the Local Gov
ernment Commission Is requiring to
be included in the 192-33 budget. There
is the sum of $20,000 in the First Na
tion Bank unsecured, which cannot
be applied to the above outstanding
notes by the Board 6f Education.
"Second. The commissioners en*
de&vored to run the six months school
term on certain items on the amount
appropriated by the State for these
items. The appropriations for these
items are enumerated below and the
shortage in each appropriation by the
State is also given. \
"Third. The increase in the average |
daily attendance In the schools has |
increased the number of teachers for i
the ensuing school year, and the |
State's inability to pay its prorata
part for these additional teachers.
"Fourth. The reduction in the State
appropriation for the extended term;
budget. {
**frhe cost of the extended term
school was reduced $23,954.60 last |
year. The school term was reduced I
from nine to eight months in the' city j
of Henderson. j
"The supplements of all teachers :
and principals were eliminated. The
•alfftrtes of jail principals were re
duced 80 to 40 percent.
“The annual salary of ail teachers
for 1932-33 per month is SOB.OO, based
on 12 months. No other employees of
the county were reduced in salary ex
cept the city of Henderson, where the
cut was 10 percent,"
Then comes in a lengthy tabulation
of budget items, after which a fur
ther statement is that “unpaid bills
for transportation was due to shortage
in the State funds for transporta
tion. The cmomlssioners did not sup
plement this item in the 1931-32 bud
get to take care of the required
•mount to maintain trucks for six
months as required by law. Hence the
deficit."
The statement concludes with this
assertion:
“We feel that the Board of Educa
tion has made every reduction pos
sible in the Bchoo) budget in keep
ing with the present financial depres
sion, and we trust the above state-1
ment will enable the tax payers of)
the county to ascertain the financial
conditions of the schools. The Board
of Education is anxious and willing
to accept any constructive criticism
that the citizens of the county may
desire to give in helping reduce the
cost of the schools."
The Government’s Public Health
bill is some $80,000,000 yearly.
The future of Einstein's theories,
or, for that matter, those of any
great man, may rest in the hands of
some red-faced baby crying in Its
cradle.
