    County Levy
Plan Urged
For Welfare
SALEM, March 18 () Gov-
rnl CmaII In a ananlnl

message delivered to the legis
lature today, asKed tne lawman
en to pass fixed maximum
nrnrurtv tax millaize to help
counties solve their critical pub
lic welfare problems, ana urgea
passage of the 3 per cent sales
tax to help solve the state's fi
nancial difficulties.
' Property Tax
Under the property tax pro
' posal, each county would have to
levy up to about 4 mills if it
needed the money for its share of
the welfare load, 'men me state
would help if that amount were
not sufficient. -
The governor recommended
that part of the sales tax be
used for the state to help out
the hard-pressed counties' wel
fare payments.
"I feel it my duty to support
this legislature in the adoption
of a sales tax as offering the
best and most logical means of
meeting the situation," the gov
ernor declared. "It is thorough
ly understood, of course, that the
measure is being submitted to the
nple for their final decision.
Income Tax
The governor also suggested
that the legislature enact other
forms of taxes, including mgner
income taxes. He asked that
these taxes be made so they
would be repealed if the people
vote for the sales tax.
The governor said "I have
' never been enthused about a
sales tax," but that it now is ap
parent that the legislature be

here, new revenues must be pro-

He pointed out that unless the
welfare problem is solved, the
whole program would collapse
because of the withdrawal of
federal funds.

familiek to live until suitable
homes could be erected. Braunig
advised that places found in the
Jap camp at the present time
are considered only temporary.
fcacli Homesteader nas been al
lowed two buildings from the
Jap camp, the standard army
barracks which are 20 by 100
feet Each building, when dis
mantled, should contain suf
ficient lumber to make a home.
It is probable that one of the
two buildings will be used as a
residence, the other for farm
buildings. Homesteaders had not
yet started dismantling the
structures but Braunig said he
expected this would get under
way by the week-end. The dis
mantling and moving of the
buildings will be done by the
homesteaders and not by the
The three main interests of
the homesteaders right now are,
first, a roof over their heads;
second, getting hold of the build
ings, and third, how much it will
cost to move the buildings to
the individual units. Some of the
buildings can be moved to the
units nearest the Jap camp.
The settlement officer said
Tue;day that "we may be able
to allow the homesteaders some
small tools such as rakes, hoes,
shovels, axes and other miscel
laneous tools used by the Jap
gardeners during occupation of
the WRA camp. Disposition of
other commodities including coal
stoves for heating purposes, has
not yet been decided by the gov
ernment Due to a shortage of farming
equipment Braunig said there
was some talk of share cropping,
renting, or exchange-work agree
ment deals being discussed by
the homesteaders with farmers
already settled but thus far no
actual agreements have been
made. Until the equipment and
machinery situation eases up,
such operations may be carried
on and homesteaders are now
checking with the general land
office in Sacramento to see if
such agreements are permissa
ble. - Homesteaders are showing
considerable interest in the mat
ter of road construction in the
newly opened area but this prob
lem must be handled through
the Modoc county board of su
pervisors. It is probable that a
petition will be handed the
board from a representative
group of the homesteaders and
the matter will be given early
