tax on tobacco companies 47 per^

in $900,000. It increased the income i
tax rate mildly and added material

house provisions and over the pres

Committee May Deadlock
The conference committee is!
spending the week-end trying to
work out some solution whieh both
houses will approve, but it is a her
culean task. On the commute is a
majority for the state support of
the six months school term, and a
big majority for one or the other of
the two taxes. Some, however, for
one tax are bitterly opposed to the
other. Whether a deadlock will be
|reached in committee remains to be
(seen. Whether the two divisions of
[the tax proponents can get together
enough to have a majority over the
opponents of any tax is still a ques
And when the committee goes
back to the two houses with its re
port, if it can reach an agreement,
more fur is bound to fly. The house
apparently is as strong for carrying
out the provisions of the MacLean
measure as is necessary to get It
through that body, although there
have been numbers of breaks from
the original ranks. The senate, al
though by a smaller majority, is
just as strongly opposed to any kind
of sales or luxury tax. other than
the small one wrote into the revenue
bill. The committee may be able to:
come to ter Jpg and get the two'
houses to follow, but the way Is hot!
Several Ways Out.
Any suggestion of a solution is lit
tle more than a wild guess. Suggcs- j
tion is that a modified sales tax, se- ■
lective commodity tax, be included
to raise say $15,000,000 or $16,000,000, j
with the other sources provided, turn |
that over and require the six months j
terms to be operated on the greatly j
reduced amount But most every
community would object to cutting
the schools to the standards neces-;
sary to operate on the funds avail- I
Another suggestion is an increase
of equalizing fund to $11,000,000 or
even $12,000,000. by increasing the
rate of the small sales tax put in
the senate measure from one-tenth i
of one percent to two or three or
four-tenths. But this would not com
pletely remove the ad valorem tax
on real estate, and would be oppos-:
ed. This, however, may be the solu
tion In fact, the opinion has been i
expressed by friends of A. D. Mac-'
Lean that he would be willing to ac
cept an equalising fund of $11,00(1;
000. or even $10,000,000, rather than
keep the legislature in session long
er than is necessary.
More for Big Schools.
The senate increased the approp
riations of the state's Institutions,
cut down from the advisory budget
commission's recommendations by
the house for complete state opera
tion of the schools. That will wait
for a determination of what comes!
of the revenue measure in that re
The house spent large parts of two
or three days on the re-apportion
ment of members of the house of
representatives, and redistricting the
senatorial districts and finally
adopted plans which many of the
members hope the senate will work
out more satisfactorily.
Last Short Ballot.
The last "short ballot" bill, to
have the governor appoint commis
sioners of agriculture, insurance and
labor and printing, and corporation
commissioners, sponsored by John
A. McRae, Mecklenburg, passed the
