Tax Move in County
J. G. Barratt of Heppner has been
named Morrow county chairman for
the Citizen's Committee for War
Time Tax Saving by H. 0. Pargeter,
Roseburg business man who is state
chairman of the citizen's group urg
ing lower local property taxes dur
ing the period of rising federal taxes
for all-out war purposes.
The platform of the Citizens' Com
mittee is simple and has already
been endorsed by scores of commun
ity organizations, women's clubs and
trade and business associations thru
out Oregon, Mr. Pargeter states.
The committee's purpose is to
arouse public opinion in all parts of
Oregon to demand that spending of
property tax money for wasteful or
non-essential public purposes stop
during the war period. The Citizen's
Committee says that federal taxes
to win the war must have first call
on a taxpayer's pocketbook, and
that every dollar saved from un
necessary local spending is a dollar
released to meet inevitable higher
taxes and with which to buy de
fense savings bonds and stamps.
Property taxes for the 1942-43 fis
cal tax year, payable next Novem

cities, many school districts, port-road-water-fire
protection and other

ril, May and early June. "Conse
quently," according to Mr. Pargeter,
who is secretary of the Douglas
County Taxpayers league, "now is
the time for, taxpayers to insist on
all-out economy in their local gov
ernment. Taxpayers should ask
themselves: "What does it cost? Can
we get along without it during the
Morrow county chairman, Mr.
Barratt, has . copies of resolutions
endorsing the position of the Citizens'
Committee with respect to "all-out
war demands lower local taxes," and
will be glad to send a suitable reso
lution to any club or organization
that desires to express its support
of the tax economy campaign.

Buy Defense Bonds
Through the payroll allotment
plan, Oregon's 2700 employes of the
Pacific Telephone and Telegraph
company already are purchasing
more than $500,000, on an annual
basis, of United States defense bonds.
In Heppner, all regular employes are
participating 100 percent, according
to Effie Andrews, manager fiere.
Emphasis on the enthusiasm with
which the company's 20,000 employ
es on the Pacific coast are partici
pating in the purchase of bonds, as
well as the difficulties imposed by
the necessary restrictive use of ma
terials, and the heavy growth in
taxes, was stressed in a report just
issued by President N. R. Powley
for the first three months of 1942. .
The report shows the tax bill of
the company for the 12 months end
ing March 31 was $24,877,000, an in
crease of more than $3,500,000 over
the preceding 12 months. Further
large tax increases, effective retro-
actively to January 1, 1942, are ex
Net gain in telephones in Febru
ary was 11,388, as compared with
12,578 in February last year.
"The necessary restrictive use of
materials makes it increasingly dif
ficult to meet large telephone de
mands," President Powley said. "The
heavy volume of local telephone
traffic continues. Long distance
traffic for the first two months a
19.3 percent increase over the same
period last year is at an all-time
high for this period. Every effort is
being made to render the best pos
