A.--Cook county received $17: 161,548.81. Q.--Then if the bond is arpproved these 39 counties, including Cook, which received the money, will pay off the bonds through their gas tax ? A.Exactly. QIf the voters fail to approve the bond issue, who will pay the $25,OOO,OOO ? A.--Every person in every county in the state who pays taxes. QWhy should there be any con- troversy as to which of the two methods is the more desirable; namely, through gas tax diversion or by direct tax ? A.--There would seem to be abso- lutely no reason for controversy in any county which has not used these relief funds. In Cook county, which has received the lion's share of them, there might be some question of whether it would not be more ex- STORE AT BEASON HAVE SACRIFICE SALE D.

These anticipation warrants must be retired next year, either out of state taxes or exchanged for bonds payable over a longer term of years.

AAn emergency due to unem- ployment with thousands cf families destitute, existed. The legislature called into special session had to act ! re p raptly. State bond issues can on- ly be approved in a general election, the first of which would come in No- I vember, 1932. Q.--V'ny did the legislature vote [a tax levy and a bond issue at this ,same time? [ A.It did so with the expectation that the voters would approve a bond issue and that the tax levy would never be extended, that is, that the state tax would not be raised. Q.How would the bonds then he paid off ? A.The legislature provided that each county which received a share of the $20,000,000 could divert the money from its share of the gas tax in lieu of a direct tax to retire the bonds and meet the interest pay- 4-nents. QWhat would happen if the voters would not approve the bonds? A.--Obviously the levy of 40enta on tlte $I00 would be extended and added to the state tax making it ap- proximately 80 cents on the $100 valuations. Q.What is the difference between retirinr the bonds by state tax and retiring them through a diversion of the gas tax? AThe tax levy is intended to re- fire the bonds in one year, and bur- den will fall upon every county r it used a portion of this re- lief fund or noL The bends, how- ever, can he paid off in twenty year !edient to kill the bond issue and thereby shift a greater share of the burden on the taxpayers of the state at large However, if the bond issue were killed, Cook county taxpayers would have to pay the 40 cents ad- ditional state tax, and the same thing will hold for every other county. Q.What share of the gas tax do counties receive ? A.--One cent per gallon, the state receiving two cents. Q.--What does the county do with its share of this gas tax money? A.It goes for the building and maintenance of highways. QIf a portion of the gas tax were diverted would there be less road work ? A.--TI presumably would be the case, but because of the 20 years used to y off the bonds this diver- sion would not be particularly a serious matter. Q.Will Cook county try to kill the bond issue? A.This seems a remote possibil- ity. Leaders of both parties are pledged to work for the bond issue, the newspapers have been urging it. to vote. danger from the ibility that voters will disre- gard this ballot. 0--Why would a failure to mark the ballot endanger the bond issue? A.--Because the law requires that a homi issue to carry must receive not merely a majority on the propo sition itself, but a majority of all the votes cast for representative.

Duck Hunters Are Given Thrill Duck hunters of Mt, Pulaski were given an unusual thrill during the early hours of Monday morning when the continued honking of a flock of wild geese called them out of their beds and gave them a persona] in- vitation to get the old firearm out and supply themselves with a wild goose dinner. Evidently blinded by the the city, and being fg, the flock spent several those early hours trying to get their bearing. A farmer east of town got tl only "ki/l" we heard of. The flock covered his fielc] of plowed ground and it looked to him as though there were thousands of them when he "banged" into the flock and secured two for his Sunday dinner. In Lincoln they were reported am havin mistaken the greenhouses for bodies of water and came down. The lakes also had their visitors. Springfield and Decatur report the same conditions. According to the sigus of the ffooseward trend south we may ex- pect colder weather. ROTH'S CELEBRATE SILVER WEDDING The 25th wedding anniversary, or silver wedding, of Mr. and Mrs. Fred J.
