1 The United Stats government, the
Male and the county have nothing on
the residents along the Oak Grove
road in Polk county.
For about 10 years the people on
that road volunteered work and kept
their road in fair condition with lit
tl outside help. Then for the last
10 years the county has duplicated
the volunteered work, and the roads
have' been kept in still better con
dition. . This year, the residents along that
, road, realizing- that the county had
Its hands full with paving and other
road improvement, wgnt down deep
Into their own pockets"and raised a
. large sum with which they purchased
clean, washed 'screened gravel for
their road, and the county court
. agreed to haul and spread the gravel.
-( The modern large truck is an Ideal
machine for that purpose, being so
:, made, that by raising the front end
r 4he gravel can be spread evenly and
at any required deptb

Other Arts Included
Besides this act. the 2 mill act to
raise funds for elementary schools,
which would produce $1.9X0.870.91.
and the bill providing for a levy of
twe-tenths of a mill additional for
educational aid for soldiers, sailors
and marines, which would produce
$198.6X7.09 have to be taken into
consideration. The amounts to be
raised under the three acts men
tioned above would total $3,426,
905.72. Hut since they apply to the
present year this figure would have
tot be doubled in the levy of next
December. This is the regular man
ner n which money is provided for
many purpose hi event any levy Is
inadvertently overlooked, and Is the
only way in which money could be
provided for 1920 under the pro
posed millage laws. ,
The bill providing a millage levy
to establish an employment institu

effective until next year. Hut In ad

- The 6 per cent tax limitation does
not apply to the millage acts to be
voted on. nor does it apply to the
1 mill , market road bill passed in
1917 or the service men's educa
tional aid net of 1917. Relative to
all other items in .the state levy a
6 per cent increase 1s allowable,
hence there is little doubt, if all
the bills pass, that the next levy
would be nrore than twice as biz
tne ,eTy made in December last.
