might be a colossal debt, for Mr.

Naturally everybody is wondering
how it can be done. If the highway
funds are reduced, exemptions given
to certain users of motor fuels and
oils, the sales tax is repealed, the tee; -
tax is allowed to vanish, the liquor
business is 'prohibited, one does not
see how it is to be achieved, but all
the statesmen are going to do it. The
last one of them is in favor of fur

Property taxes must come down.

is unthinkable that he would get all
the needed money from kilowatt. In

Burrus to yank millions from kilo

can’t produce any more. And still the
