Four School Board MemBef s to Sep■'.'*' Elected Next^Year June "Disaster Deadline"-Hare "There is an absolute, end- of-the-road deadlock in Lansing now," Secretary of State James M. Hare told Saline area Democrats Thursday. night. "And June first is the absolute deadline." "After that, school districts all over the state will be closing down because they can't borrow any more money," Hare continued; "There will be default on bond payments, welfare deficiencies, in the next month if we don't get cash. It will be a disaster." Speaking at a meeting of the local Democratic organization, at Marty's Restaurant, Hare insisted, "We cannot solve the cash shortage with new taxes _ alone ..'. it would take too long. And the Veterans' Fund is the only cash left in the system." Hare emphasized that the | ^ Veterans' fund was set up or- ! ■&-.. iginally with surplus money from the General Fund. "Our problem is primarily a problem of 'teacup economy'" Hare said-. By law, Michigan's money is divided into 13 funds. Ten of these are minor, a milion or two apiece, 'pin money.' The other three include the Highway Fund, about a quarter of the total budget; the School Aid fund, another quarter; and the General fund, about half the budget. . * "This is our reason for being broke . . . the General Fund teacup is empty, The School Aid fund is also broke. These special funds guarantee protection on to special groups, but it's not good government. "In the long run," he concluded, "a Constitutional Convention is the only thing that will save us." • In answer to questions, Hare said he had received many letters from persons who favor a sales tax over a graduated income tax because they dread the paper work involved in the income tax. Administration costs would be about the same for either type of tax, he said. A poll of the 26 members of the audience showed six favoring a sales tax; 20 prefering a graduated income tax. Saline Area electors will be voting for" four School Board members in 1960. Oliver Steinetf pointed out this week. "Now is the time for people to start thinking of that," said Steiner, a candidate to succeed himself in this year's school election. Steiner, who is completing a three-year term on the Board of Education, is opposed for the single available seat by Lauren Wild, on the June. 8 ballot. The increase in School Board strength stems from a state law passed by the present legislature, requiring seven members of the Board of Education in all class 4 school districts. Saline, although a class 4 district, has previously had only five members. Terms of two present members — Allie Burkhardt and Raymond Girbach — will expire in 1960. "Voters of the school district should begin to think about candidates to fill the four posts available next year," Steiner said.
