Failure of Tax
For. Schools Is
Placed on Court
Responsibility for the fai.ure to
provide for a .school fund of S per
capita for each child of school age1
in Marion county, is placed ; directly
upon the county court of ' Marion
county, and - Indirectly upon ' each
school district in the county, in an
opinion written by Justice Harris and
hah Jed down by the Oregon supreme
court Tuesday. The county court is
held responsible for the su'iation l,v
its failure to give preference to the
school fund, a mandatory levy, over
other levies of a diwcretioriHvy nature.
The school districts nra hold indirect
ly responsible for failure to note this
action on the part of .the county
court and compel a compliance with
the principle which gives preference
to mandatory levies over discretion
ary levies. .
Justice Johns) opinion was written
in connection with -the dismissal, of
the original proceeding in mandamus
instituted by the Salem school district
in an attempt to compel W M. Smith
county superintendent of schools to
apportion to the district its full $19
per capita school fund as provided
for under the law of 1919. Inasmuch
as no such fund is available from
which the county school superintend
ent can make such an appropriation
he can not be compelled by law to do
so Justice Johns holds in dismissing
"Where the legislature has spe
cifically required ithe levy of any tax
by the county court for a definite
purpose the law is mandatory . and
such tax must be levied," Justice
. "However, when the county court
is authorized, but not directed, to
raise a tax for a given purpose, such
levy is discretionary. The six per
cent limitation must be" respected
and enforced and when the legisla
ture has directed the levy of a spe
cial tax all taxes of that class should
first be levied and included Within
the constitutional limitation. The
levy of any discretionary tax within

"As stated the levy of the $10 per
capita tax was mandatory. An exam-
ination or me ourerent bhuuics uu-
jer which the county court acted 'n
making its primary levy shows that
in many instances the items were
not mandatory, but only discretion
