MILL TO PROVIDE
SALARIES FOR TEACHERS WOULD STILL
KEEP LEVY BELOW OTHER OREGON CITIES
Salem, with a lower school levy than any of 16
other cities of similar school rating in Oregon, would
still have a levy .2 of a mill less than the lowest of
these 16 cities even if, at the special school election
to be held next Monday, it should vote the additional
1 mill asked to provide increases in the salaries of
Figures showing the school taxes paid in 16
other cities in the state demonstrate that Salem is
paying a smaller tax than any of the 16, by 1.2 mills,
and 5.5 mills less than the average, which is 12.8
mills for the 17 cities including Salem.
Next to Salem the .lowest levy in any of these
places is 8.5 mills, the present assessment for school
purposes in Oregon City, Bend, with a levy of 31
mills kads the list.
The last levy in. Salem for school purposes was
7.3 mills and the following table shows the amount in
