    FDR PRESSES HIS FIGHT TO
ASSURE LIBERAL CONTROL
OF THE U. S. GOVERNMENT
; ' -
-
.
President Roosevelt's highly pub
licised swing across the Continent
has about ended and in a few days
the CRief Executive will board a
cruiser at San Diego for a fishing
> trip that will end at the Atlantic
Coast
The political campaign of 1938 is
wagging along its way, with - the
President undoubtedly taking a lead
ing part in the discussion, framing
tha issues and using the fall force of
his office to drive home to the peo
ple the advantages of the policies;
that he espouses. Once more, Mr.
Rooeevelt has demonstrated his amaz
ing ability to set the stage, to prop
"? erly time his acts, and to focus the
limelight where, in his opinion, it
< will do the most good.
Watte Decision.
The general attitude of the Presi
dent toward the coming referendum
at the polls is that the people of the
nation are divided between two
schools of thought, classified gea
* erally as Liberal and Conservative.
He urges the people to vote in their
party primaries and to make healthy
choice between the candidates of the
opposing parties. He insists that an
election "cannot give a country a
firm sense of direction if it has two
or more national parties, which
merely have different names, but are
as alike in their principles and aims
as peas in the same pod."
Naturally, the President urges the
* voters to favor Liberals in all con
tests and is more concerned about the
general attitude of a candidate to
wards present-day problems than at
titudes toward any particular test.
He warns that progress may be block
ed by men who my "Yes" and then
find specific reasons to oppose every
specific object advanced to solve na-j
tional problems.
Divide Parties.
The President's idea as to the for
mation of distinct Liberal and Con
servative parties in this country is
not newly expressed. ' For many
years, the major parties in the United
States have included both schools of
thought Mr. Roosevelt, in his cam
paign in 1932, succeeded in securing
the support of most of the Liberal
element in the nation.
His political purpose since that
, day has been to make permanent the
adhesion of Liberals and to make
certain that the party he leads wi J
be the spokesman for the T ibaisln
Ha has faced a consistent Coahsrra
tive opposition, which has been di
vided between the membership of the
two parties, Sat he has resolutely
insisted upon drawing the tine be
tween Liberals and Conservatives
with what practical politicians con
sider a callous disregard of the for-j
tune of parties and politicians.
I
is cmtmmX,
In the President's opinion, the na
tion is engaged in a vast social and
economic uMutw* no strugpe is
titanic and more fSr-reeehing than
moat Americana suspect. One lead
ing Washington correspondent calls
it, "a revolution in slow-motion."
Throughout his first term end with
- unflagging determination thus far,
the President bar' stack to his bat
- tie, upon reforms in the
position. He haa won many engage
4' meats aad been defeated on notable
nttiaefnne, hut, ahnoet without ex
ception, he has relumed to the fray,
convinced that the people want the
r! fight and confident in the
hdlef that the people of 1fce nation

during the* recovery movement, ^boast
not blame bin for the econioarfc
treubteof the pact year.
This fact has been reasonably well
established by two polls of public
opinion. The Gallup Poll disclosed
that only three persons out of ten
blamed Roosevelt or the New Deal
for the depression. The otter Sev
enty per cent put the bias# upon
something else, including ? natural
economic trends, bad distribution of
national lack of cooperation I
between business, labor and the Gov
ernment, maladjustment of our eco
nomic machinery, etc. 4*.:-V
The Poll of Fortune Magazine ask
ed, "Do you approve in general of
Roosevelt?" In reply, 64.8 per cent
of those polled said, "Yes." About
eleven per sent did not know, and on
ly thirty-four per cent said, "No."
This result is more remarkable be
cause the same poll that showed gen
eral approval of the President: re
ported that none of his policies have
the majority support of the people,
except rearmament

It will be noted that while you have the same tax rate as for prior year, that there is a reduction in taxes of 20%. This is
caused by the act of the Legislature in 1987 removing from the local tax books all taxes on Intangible property which for the year
1987-38 amounted to $5,280.00. This has caused the reduction in assessed value from $2,590,108.00 to an estimated value for
this year of $2,200,000, with a tax revenue during 1987-88 of $81,571.75, with an estimated revenue for 1988-89 of only $28,400.00.
