FIRE DRILL PRAf<IICE HELD ON TUESDAY-- It took Just 50 seconds to clear the two fire-exits on the second floor of the school building, and 8e sec- onds to clear the front exit on the first floor last Tuesday, Oct. 22, when Mr. Gludt rang the fire alarm for drill practice. Mr. Poyzer, president of the school board, C. R. Jacobsen, mayor of Rolla and William Munro fire chief, were at the school to witness the drill. THE, TOPIC OF THE DAY The School Paper As An Institution Does anyone read the school paper besides those students who con- tribute to its columns)? It is a known fact that the writers read their articles first and nothing else. Well, that's their privilege. They must ascertain the legibility of their work. But the body of stud- ents and parents who do not read its enticing news are guilty of a flagrant indifference to a scholarly imctitution. The reporters, editors and re-write men were canvassed as to their con- tact with the reading public. "'No one," said Ray Crosby, star reporter, "seems to have read the Job I did on the poison death/In the Home Ec. Room, and it ws a scoop at that." It is also a sad state of affair when a writer spends extra time and effort reporting on the love" life of John Doe and nobody reads it but John Doe's rival!

I I I Protect North Dakota Homes and Schools Adjust Taxes According to Ability to Pay. WHAT THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT WILL DO It will PERMIT passage of laws providing: HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION to relieve home owners, in town or country, of PART or ALL taxes on "land occupied as a residence hy the .... owner" with a MAXIMUM limitation of $5,000 valuation, thus preventing eviction for taxes of families from the last roof over their heads. GRADUATION LAND TAX, which 'would increase the rate of taxation upon larger holdings, according to ACREAGE or VALUE or BOTH, protecting the family-type farmer, owning a few quar- ters, or a family-type rancher owning a few sections from the trend of huge mechanized units of tens of thousands of acres. It will discourage land speculation, and a drift toward absentee landlordism. It will offer a replacement tax to make up for the tax exemption on homes occupied by owners. Satisfactory laws embodying these principles should be pre- ceded by a complete study of the tax structure, taking at least two years. What the Reclassification Measure Will Do It restores the taxable base on most property from 50 per cent of the assessed valuation to 75 per cent, the same base used prior to 1932, but increases it on public utilities to 100 per cent and reducing it on household goods, clothing, and farm machinery to 25 per cent. This increase in TAXABLE BASE, does not mean an increase in TAXES unless the school, tfxnship, county, and city officials you elect specifically vote that present revenues are insufficient to maintain essential functions of government. The share paid by public utilities would increase from 15 per cent to 20 per cent of the total property tax load. That means a reduction of the share of all other property. Since 1931 North Dakota has dropped from 38th to 46th among the states in tax revenue per mile from railroads.
