THE ETERNAL TAX QUESTION
If the tax reduction crusade is to
get us anywhere, we will have to
give up the things that we pay taxes
for. There's no eating our cake and
having it too. We feel that we must
have decent roads, good schools, wat
erworks systems, paved streets and
electric lights. And these are the
things that cost the money. Crip
pling the state university and the
state college, cutting out agricultural
extension work and county agents,
will deprive the commonwealth of a
real and beneficial service, worth far
more than it costs, and result in no
appreciable saving to the taxpayer.
If the axe be thus applied in a spirit
of false economy, the taxpayer will
never see the chips, since the far
greater portion of his tax money is
spent for tangible things right in his
own community. Economy, like char
ity, should then begin at home, if he
feels that he must economize. It is
a situation the taxpayer seldom sees
because he doesn't want to see it.
Thus Superintendent Green was lis
tened to with manifest impatience at
the Pendleton meeting when he
pointed out that Umatilla's high
school costs $650 annually per pupil
and that one district near Pendleton
pays $15(50 each year for the privi
lege of educating just one child. Yet
he gave concrete examples of where
a genuine saving could be effected,
while most of the speakers used a
verbal scatter gun and hit nothing.
