say in Cleveland county, would en
large its force sufficiently to keep
up practically all the public roads
in the entire county. This same!
change should be applied to the
state. To get sufficient fluids to;
pay for state maintenance, I favor 1
a two cent raise in the gasoline!
tax. This would produce about i
five million dollars and by one j
sweep of the pen. the maintenance'
tax as levied by the townships and
road district < could be abolished. I
leaving it, necessary to levy only a
sufficient tax to pay Interest on '
bonds and retire them when due !
“By this method, land would not
have to pay the heavy road main-I
tenant e tax burden that it now has |
to carry. It would be paid by the1
automobillsts, many of them* from J
out of state, passing through over 1
our good roads. If a farmer did 1
not own a car and have to buy j
gasoline he would be exempt from
paying any road tux except for lo
cal bond interest.
l imit Teachers’ Pay.
Mr. Mull is deeply in another j
piece of legislation which he thinks '
would bring relief from high taxes
which arc so much decried all over
North Carolina. There is a sur
plus m the state treasury which
could be used to increase the state
school equalization fund. This
equalization fund last year was
about three and a quarter million
dollars. Mr. Mull would increase,
the equalization fund to approxi- j
mately five millions, said fund to j
be distributed to local tax district
schools where the school tax is a
burden on real estate.
Mr. Mull would not allow, how
ever, any of this school equaliza
tion fund to go to any school that
pays its teachers more than the
state salary schedule out of public
funds of any description. In oth
er words, Mr. Mull would have all
public schools pay their teachers
not more than their certificate
would rate them and tn accordance
with the salary schedule set by the
state department of education, oth- j
crwlse these schools would not get i
any of (he equalization money.
He is expected to run into op-!
position by school men who con-;
j tend there should be some differ
ence in salaries because there is
a difference in the cost of living
in the larger and smaller towns
and cities of the state.
