15-Cent Tax
Cut Here Seen
By A. E. Cline
County Ruvinevt Managrr Hay*
Prospect* Now Point To Good
Slash In Tat Rate.
“A rountv-wide tax reduction
of I.V In Cleveland county look-,
possible now,” said A. E. Cline,
chairman of thp board of coun
ty commissioners, speaking last
night before (he Klwanl* club.
In the Woman's club building
where the elub members were
served a delirious meal by one
of the dlvtsinos.
"The best that can be done on
schools is to reduce the tax lrom
60c to 54c, while the one cent tax
on gasoline for roads will permit, a
reduction of about 9c. We have
been doing our best, to practice
economy and efficiency and stimu
late progress but we don't want to
progress faster than we can finance.
For the last few years the county
ha* not. had a deficit in any fund
and has none this year, except in
the bridge fund caused by the
floods of last summer.''
Mr. Cline was speaking somewhat
in answer to a resolution recently
passed by the Kiwanis club, favor
ing the county matching a state
fund to provide a county health
nurse in Cleveland. "Such an offi
cer would no doubt be a fine step
and I and the other commission
ers. Dr. Gold and R L. Weathers
favor such a move, but we think it
would be useless to provide the
nurse without funds with which to
work and to carry on this import
ant. mission. It would mean tax
money which we do not have. Folks
need and expect a tax reduction, but
If they are willing to pay for pro
gress such as a health nurse, health
officer and match the *25,000 Duke
gift to the hospital, we are willing
to make the levy in the interest of
health as we are authorized to do by
law, if the citizens are willing.’
Mr. Cline praised hts associates
on the board. Commissioners Gold
and Weathers and commended
Supt. J. H. Grigg as one of the
"best, most efficient and economi
cal school heads in the state." "Our
county government is moving along
smoothly and our commissioners
are always willing to Join every for.
ward movement that, can be financ
ed and that is backed by the sym
pathy of the tax payers, whom we
represent. We are willing to levy if
the folks are willing to pay. We
are doing our level best to give good

is comparatively low. with a reduc
tion last year of three cents and
