The increase will accomplish 3 things:
It will equalize support by placing part of the
increased school load expense at state level, instead
of ALL at district property tax level.
O It will distribute school expenses to ALL the people,
not juit to property owners.
4 It will distribute money in proportion to attendance
so that every Oregon child has an even chance.

TIME CONFUSION IN HIGH EDITORIAL CIRCLES
Excerpt from Editorial Page, Canby Herald, September t8, 1950;
by Thomas W. Gerber, Editor
If you know any brave word-and-phrase explorer who
happened to read the editorial comments of both the
Oregonian and the Journal Sunday (Sept. 24) on the
subject of so-called daylight saving time and the bill to
be voted upon November 7, watch him carefully for a
few days. He may begin cutting out paper dolls or try
ing to pick daisies off the ceiling. But he'll recover. A
few paragraphs of Bob Ruark or Drew Pearson prob
ably will put his trolley back on the wire.
Both of these eminent newspapers seem to have as
signed the top experts of their Departments of Utter
Confusion to the task of befuddling folks about Ore
gon's little argument as to the measurement of time.
We doubt if there was collusion, however. Both writers
started their arguments from erroneous premises, but
from different ones.
The Oregonian's word-slinger set up a straw man for
his shadow-boxing. He started off by advising people to
give some thought to the "obscure" measure on the
ballot "which has been miscalled a 'daylight saving'
bill," and which, he says, is "a legislative phony."
Great Scott, where art thou ? Nobody has been calling
this measure a daylight saving bill. It says right here
in the title it is a measure "TO ESTABLISH STAN
DARD TIME." It says so emphatically in the text. The
act contains a safety-valve by which the governor may
change the state's time in case of dire necessity, which
is a good, flexible provision, although it is unlikely any
governor would invoke it.
The Oregonian author says he'd like to see a clear-cut
state vote on Standard versus Daylight time. Okay, son.
You'll get it
The Journal man simply got his facts tangled. In the
blithely informal style which causes readers to feel
friendly without being able to understand what they've
read, he wrote :
"It's like this: The Oregon legislature adopted a bill
which authorized the governor to proclaim daylight
saving time, ..." etc., and : " 'Twas then Portland voters
adopted the daylight saving amendment."
The fact is, Portland started the whole mess by foist
ing a semi-annual time change on neighboring commun
ities which had no voice in the matter. Portland voters
adopted it by a very narrow margin, but they did adopt
it. THEREAFTER the state legislature almost unani
mously passed the law establishing standard time in
Oregon. The primary purpose of the law was to bring
about uniformity and prevent Portland from continu
ing to inconvenience other sections of the state. Putting
it somewhat more crudely, the law was intended to cor
rect Portland's bad manners. The Journal writer com
placently and erroneously concludes that he will get
daylight saving time if the state law is adopted by the
voters. 'Tain't so, Joe.
Local autonomy is a workable and efficient political
principle in matters affecting only local communities.
When the effects of local legislation react far beyond the
municipality which enacts it, intervention from a larger
political unit becomes necessary. The Oregon legisla
ture acted wisely.
