In upholding the validity of the
municipal debt refunding act of
1933 the state supreme court reit
erated the principle that "the power
of the legislature to enact a general
law applicable alike to all cities is
paramount and supreme over any
conflicting charter provision or or
dinance of any municipality, city or
town." While the act authorizes
city councils to refund matured
bonds without submitting the prop
osition to the voters, attorneys here
point out that it does not authorize
the waiver of tax levies provided by
bonding ordinances for the retire
ment of bonds. Six Oregon cities
have already taken advantage of
the refunding act and at least 17
others are expected to do so, ac
cording to attorneys appearing be
fore the supreme court in defense
of the measure.

Morrow county school districts
reduced their debt load by nearly
$54,000 during the past year ac
cording to figures compiled by C.
A. Howard, state superintendent of
public instruction. Outstanding
bonds were reduced from $200,100
to $182,400 and the school warrant
debt was whittled down from $136,
643 to $100,687.
Reports from every county in the
state show a reduction of more than
$4,000,000 in the school debt burden.
Outstanding bonds have been re
duced during the year by $1,326,862
to a net of $17,264,775 while the war

which on June 30, 1933, had mount

reduction of $2,701,627.
Howard points out that the prog

of the recent depression was made
possible largely through curtail

Oregon's outstanding bonded in
debtedness has been reduced by
more than $10,000,000 during the
past six years, according to a report
by State Treasurer Holman. The
state debt which reached its peak
in 1928 at $63,325,710 is now down to
$52,534,510 and includes $25,375,000
in Veterans' bonus bonds, $24,866,750
in highway bonds, $2,172,760 in dis
trict interest bonds and $210,000 in
farm credit bonds. Partially off

the net debt to $26,270,122. Most of
these assets are held iy the Veter

Budget director Henry Hanzen
has announced that he expects to
recommend to the next legislature
that the pay cuts put into effect by
the 1933 session be continued for
another two years. Condition of
the state's finances is not sufficient
ly improved to justify restoration of
the old pay scale, in the opinion of
the budget director. Hanzen's an
nouncement comes as a blow to the
hopes of hundreds of state em
ployees who had been looking for
ward to an increase in the monthly
pay check after the present "econ
omy" act expires next March.
