State School Support has
REDUCED PROPERTY TAX
Oregon state school support has brought outstanding
benefits to Oregon's schools and Oregon property
taxpayers. State support has played a vital part in
providing needed equipment and supplying necessary
teachers for Oregon's surging school population.
It has saved MORROW county property
taxpayers $487,981 in the past 7 years
To educate Morrow county boys and girls for the past 7 years
required local property taxes of $1,400,013. In addition, state
school support from income tax sources supplied more than
$487,981. In other words, for every $3.00 raised by local school .
district property taxes, another $1.00 has come from state sources.
School population will double in 10 years
More state aid is needed to relieve rapidly increasing local
district property taxes.

Of? YOU AMD THE MAN NEXT DOOR?
RUNNING AMERICA is the joint job of 150,000,000 people. It's the biggest job in the world today
-keeping it running for liberty and for freedom. And the whole world's watching to see
whether Americans can do it!
IN MUCH OF THE WORLD today, the people have resigned from running their own countries.
Others have been quick to step in-first with promises of "security "-and then with whips
andguns-to run things their way. The evidence is on every frontpage in the world, every day.
FREEDOM COMES UNDER ATTACK. The reality of war has
made every American think hard about the things he's willing to work
and fight for and freedom leads the list.
But that freedom has been attacked here recently-just
as it has been attacked in other parts of the world. One
of the most serious threats to individual freedom has
been the threat of Government-dominated Compulsory
Health Insurance, falsely presented as a new guarantee
of health "security" for everybody.
THE PEOPLE WEIGH THE FACTS. In the American manner, the
people studied the case for Socialized Medicine-and the case against it.
They found that Government domination of the people's medical
affairs under Compulsory Health Insurance means lower standards
; of medical care, higher payroll taxes, loss of incentive, damage to
research, penalties for the provident, rewards for the improvident.
They found that no country on earth can surpass Amer
ica's leadership in medical care and progress. They
found that able doctors, teachers nurses and scientists
-working in laboratories where Science, not Pol''"; 15
master-are blazing dramatic new trails to health for
Americans-and for the world.
THE "GRASS ROOTS" SIGNALS CONGRESS. In every com
munity in the Nation, people stood up to be counted on this im
portant issue. Thousands of local women's clubs, civic groups, farm,
business, religious, taxpayer, medical, educational and patriotic organ
izations spoke out giving the great United States Congress its
unmistakable Grass Roots signal from home!
And ever watchful ever sensitive to an alert people,
The Congress saw that signal, and heard the people
speak out, loud and plain. Thaf s democracy in action.
That's the American wayl
Today among the 10,000 great organizations on militant public
record against "Compulsory Health Insurance" are:
General Federation of
American Farm Bureau
Veterans of Foreign Wars
National Conference of
National Association of
Small Business Men
United States Chamber of
National Association of
National Retail Dry Goods
American Bar Association
e Doctors of this Nation are grateful that the people
refused to be wooed by the fantastic promises of this
un-American excursion into State Socialism, o Doctors
of America are dedicated to serve their fellow citizens
at home and their comrades in uniform, wherever serv
ice to this Nation may take them, e And the thing they
stand ready to fight for-to sacrifice for-to die for-is
not the alien way of life of Socialism, but the prideful
security of a free and self-reliant people!
THE VOLUNTARY WAY IS THE AMERICAN WAY!
e Throughout the Nation, free men and women, working and planning
together, are finding the American answer to every question or medical
service, care and cost. Hundreds of Voluntary Health Insurance Plans are
in healthy competition-sponsored by doctors, insurance companies hos
pitals, fraternal organizations-by industry, agriculture and labor, e Today
in America-70 million people are protected by Voluntary Health Insur
ance! e Throughout the Nation, families are insuring themselves against
the major costs of illness at reasonable, budget-basis prices. Voluntary
Health Insurance takes the economic shock out of illness. Protect your
family now. e For information, ask your doctor or your insurance man.
An American' 8 greatest heritage is the right to learn the facts-and to speak his mind.
Maintained with honor and used with sincerity -that right will guarantee forever that
