J The Saline '**£*.*•:" ^-i ** VOLUME 64 SALINE. WASHTENAW COUNTY. MICHIGAN. THURSDAY, OCT. 17, 1946 NUMBER 2 ost Out Of Your Tax Dollar A proposed constitutional amendment (No. 2) is to be voted upon at the election November 5 providing that one cent of sales tax should be distributed to localities: half cent to "cities, villages and townships, half cent to schools. The Bureau of Governmental Research, Detroit, is against this amendment "As a Matter of Principal," and insofar as the Bureau is concerned, quotes, "at the top of the list stands the fact that'whatever the merits claimed for it, the proposal violates the fundamental and sound principal that responsibility for raising money should accompany the spending of it. Going back to the time of the origin of the sales tax, one of its main purposes was to relieve home owners-of the burden of the unjust property tax, and a limitation of 15 mills on real and personal property for tax purposes was written into law. The 3 per cent sales tax was originally intended to supplant the real property tax and the 15 mills tax was fixed for local purposes only, the state not participating in revenue from that source. It is generally conceded that levying a tax on homes up to a certain value is unsound in principal and in fact; that it puts a premium on home ownership, which should be encouraged instead of discouraged. The argument that "the responsibility for ..raising money should- accompany the ^spending of it" is fair enough if viewed from the right standpoint. The state levies the tax, but it certainly is raised by the people who pay it. State legislators, government officials and others who oppose ■ the amendment raise the cry, "A raid on state funds!" State funds your eye. It's the money that comes from John Q. Public's pants pockets and never in the history of Michigan has he shelled out so much into the state drainery. The people of Saline and Saline township are being knicked painlessley, unconsciously, of probably $65,000 or more this year by means of that little three per center. It goes to Lansing where much of it is spent according to political dictum. We are firm in the belief that that much money is too much money to leave the community, especially when the only alternative is to soak local property owners for additional revenue for the maintenance of schools and public service. Many are the public officials who loudly lament the multiplicity of bureaus and agencies and who warn that the farther government gets away from the smaller units, the less representation they receive. But Lansing never cuts out an agency nor consolidates the overlapping departments of government. Economy i s preached but never practiced. For the people to hang on to ' the reins of government is smart, for the reins of government is the public treasury, and without a public treasury you would have no public officials and no politicians. Politicians rarely effect cuts in tax levys, but through this amendment the public is given a rare opportunity to stretch their tax dollar and effect economics. Total receipts from the sales tax this year are certain to hit the $150 million mark. $100 million is plenty for state needs. For the school District of Sahne, which has struggled for 15 years to pay off its school indebtedness and has 15 years yet to go; for Saline itself which has a disposal plant to build in the very near future "n«ar William R.

The second prize of $3.00 was won by Mrs. Florence Sheehan who had 30 entries, winning 99 points. Lloyd Finkbeiner, local F.F.A. member, had 19 entries,winning 77 points and 3rd prize of $2.00 to defeat Mrs. Roland Bredernitz who had 16 entries and earning 76 points. Mrs. Bredernitz won an extra $1.00 for fourth, defeating Luther Schaible who had 18 entries for a total of 66 points. Many other exhibitors were apparently trying for the top honors, since many had over a dozen or more entries, but since a placing is required along with an entry to win points many failed to earn more than 50 points. A few exhibitors failed to observe one of the general rules which limited a person making more than one entry in a single class. if such a person received two prizes, only one was counted in the point award. 'Mrs. Robbins had entries in many departments, but earned many of ner firsts m the flower and home economics division. She won 10 firsts on her 45 entries.
