Architects Pose Zoning Problems
architecture has created several
zoning problems, according 'o
the American Society of Planning
Officials. '
The society said modern "pro

beam and the extended roof over

metal or fibre glass, and external
steel or aluminum Venetian blinds
did not exist when most zoning
ordinances were written.
These currently popular devices

SALEM (UP) Which do you
prefer: An increase in your prop
erty tax, an increase in your in
come tax, or a sales tax?
Rep. Earl Hill (R-Cushman) says
the choice is just about that blunt
If his sales tax measure gets
through the Legislature you will '
have your chance to vote your I
preference, probably late in May!
or early in June.
In one manner or another the
Legislature has to raise some 30 i
million dollars a year in additional ;
revenues to meet an estimated
deficit of 60 million dollars in the
biennium starting next July 1. Hill !
thinks the sales tax is the solution
to the problem. And a growing
number of legislators agree with
Oregon voters have rejected the
sales tax five times. But Hill said
today tliut he has found increasing
sentiment in favor of the sales tax
to halt the upward trend of prop
erty taxes and to fend otf a new
bulge in state income taxes.
A 3 per cent sales tax provided
in the Cushman Republican's bill
would raise some 75 million dollars
a year, experts have estimated. He
proposes to use up to 50 million
dollars a year of this as a property
tax offset at the county level for
schools. Some 75 per cent of county
taxes now go for school purposes.
The balance would go in to the
basic school fund, which must be
raised by a state property tax if
olher funds are not available.
Basic school support may amount
to' some 35 million dollars a year,
and the estimated 25 million dol
lars a year that would go into the
fund would replace money that
could go for other state purposes
and thus obviate the necessityof
a'state property tax.
A proposal to raise part of the
needed money by increasing state
income taxes together with a tax of
3 cents a pack on cigarettes, would
almost certainly be referred to the
Voters, Hill said. That would mean
Oregon would be without the bene
fit of these funds for at least until
the 1956 November general elec
tion. That, he said, eould force the
state onto a warrant basis, which
would impair the state's credit and
raise the interest rates on bonds
it sells.
Because he does not want to see
the stale forced onto a warrant
basis, Hill said he proposes a spe
cial election in late May or early
June, so that the people may vole
on it befoce the next fiscal year
starts July 1. Should it then he re
jected, a special session of the
Legislature might be called to try
again to strike a balance.
