STEWART Washington, Sept. 7. Estimates of the amount of mney whioch ought to be available to take the country's de stitute through the winter cary so widely that they are hardly worth quoting. Director John A. Ryan of the social action department of the National Catholic Welfare conference, who pro bably Is the best and most disinter ested American authority on the sub ject, has argued all along for a $5,- 000.000.000 federal bond issue, but of course this is not his idea of the nec essary allowance merely for the win ter; it is what he thinks will be re quired to put employment again up on a stable basis, with a reasonable prospect of keeping it there. However, the relief task having been left largely by the federal govern ment to the individual states, the Rev. Dr. Ryan inclines to hope, with some confidence, for a satisfactory solution of the problem by the various com monwealths. “My original thought.” he explains, “was that federal revenue could be raised, to meet the emergency, by in creased income, inheritance and ex cess profits taxation, placing the bur den upon our great concentrations of wealth, as vastly preferable to the states' principal method, that of levy ing still more heavily upon the own ers of farms and urban realty, who already are impossibly overloaded. “Since the central government has reeorted instead to the expedient of burdening a multiplicity of small transactions, there is not so much to choose. Such money comes out of the 1 same pockets, whether it Is taken by Uncle Sam or by' local authority. •“The outcome of which I am rather optimistic is that the states .left by the Washington administration and congress to work out their own sal <Continued cm Page Four.)

COUNTIES SEEKING SUPPLEMENTS MUST GIVE GOOD REASON Their Record In Paying State 15 Cents Tax Will Have Bearing on School Budgets EQUALIZING BOARD WILL TIGHTEN UP Special Tax Districts And Supplements Over State Allowances Will Be Scrut. inized Closely Before Higher Expenditures Are Authorized llaill l>i«|»<tt<-ll Huron, In Itr Sir Matter Hotel. I»* J f. lUMKRIIULL. Raleigh. Sept. 7. -Counties, special tax districts or special charter dis tricts, which include the larger cities, that desire to levy higher taxes for ahool purposes than are justified by the State standards, must henceforth achow the ability of the taxpayers in these districts to pay more taxes. If this ability to pa>' taxes cannot be demonstrated, they cannot expect the Board of Equalization to approve bud gets calling for levies higher than necessary to maintain State stand ards. One of the principal teats of the ability of a county or district to pay additional taxes will be to examine in to the manner In which the State 15 cents levy has been paid. If a large proportion of this levy has been paid, the county or district may expect per mission to increase Its supplemental levies. But if only a relatively small proportion of the 15 cents levy has been paid, the board is likely to hold that the county or district is not able to pay any additional tax«i for school purposes. These facts were learned today as preparations were being made for the meeting of the State Board of Equal ization which will meet here Thursday to take up the 1.080 special tax dis trict and special charter district bud gets for the extended term. It'was In timated by a member of the board that these districts and the conn ies In which they are located must show their ability to pay more taxes before any material increases in the budgets are allowed, and that the amount each county haa paid of the 15 cents lexy will also enter into the situation. There la the caae of New Hanover county and Wilmington, for instance, that asked permission to supple Tient the six months school term some SB2 - 000. while the total of the Mate 15 cents levy in New Hanovei county and Wilmington is only $89,514. In other words, if the supplement asked is granted for next year, the taxpayers in the city and county will pay almost a 30 centa tax for the six months school term Instead of 15 cents. Yet the figure* on file in the office of the State treasurer show tha-. New Hanovkr county has paid to the State only $21.255 of the $89,574 due from the 15 cents tax, or only 76 per cent of the total due. Yet it is asking to levy still another 15 cents for echo'd purposes, when it has collected oti'y (Continued on Page Three.) Warns Os Menace !n High Price Os Tobacco, Cotton Raleigh, Sept. 7 (AP)—J.
