Williamston, Martin County, North Carolina, Tuesday, July 29,1924.
COUNTIES NOW
LEVYING TAXES
FOR YEAR 1924
1 Martin's Levy Has Not
Been Made l et; To Be
Made In Near Future
A number of counties in this wc
- tion are levying taxes for the yeai
. 1924.
Our neighboring county, ltertie,
ha snia«le the following levy:
i For schools, 72 cents on the SIOO.
' For rwaii>. 4() cents on the $ ltK).
For general fumi, 15 cents on the SIOO.
For sinking fund 7 cents on the SIOO.
This makes a total of $1.26 on each
sloo.im of property valuation, which
is the same agitate that that county
hati last year.
Martin county has not levied yet,
but like Bertie when the levy is made
most of it will lie for schools anil
ruads, two institutions that we did
not have much of a few decades ago.
' It has been only about 20 years
since the roads in most counties were
place- on taxation. Martin county has
not heen receiving county appropri
ations that long and one township
1 (Poplar Point) still sleeps under the
same old law. riding the good roads of
1 it townships ami ploughing
through the mud of its own township.
It would he very hard to find a man
I
who oppose:- our schools and roads.
Yet there are a few sub-normals who
may be oppo.-rd to everything in the
form of prosperity. If the world is
making any mistakes in its school
system, it is in its higher education
anal in.! in its general educaton.
Ceneral education is the saving
power of society. Higher education
only wi-lens the branch or gap lie
tfttrii the people.- and increases the
-tratu- of society thereby destroying
oentocrac) and feeding plutocracy or
imperialism. The higher education of
the tierinan people causpal the growth
of bigo'ry and selfishness that has
practically ruined them. They tru.-tea'
kiiuuiedge anal not justice. Our |ieo
pie may call for a reduction of the
expenses of the higher eilucation i»ut
never for a reduction of that great
common system that enables everyone
• to have some kind of an education.
What will the levy lie when the
Board of Commissioners of Martin
county when it meets to | decide
tluu problem? Will it lie increaseal?
Will it be the same or will it lie in
creaseal? It is a praiblem to be settleal
anai one that requires much thought.

The Philath a Class of the Memorial
