GAMBLE HOST TO COUNTY OFFICIALS Last Sunday, county commissioner D. S. Gamble of this city was host at a picnic for county officials and their families. The picnic was held at Paine's Meadows a few miles the oth- er side of the Gamble mill. The picnic was featured by the e- normous dinner of which about 75 persons partook, ice cream, sand- wiches, pickles, lemonade and kindred picnic dishes were in evidence. An- other feature of the day was the program of sports, chief among them being an impromptu baseball game. According ,to reports, the game progressed nicely until a pitched ball went past the catcher and nestled in- to a yellow jacket castle. Action from then on was rapid in the ex- treme, both batter and catcher rounding the bases at top speed. Everyone attending, pronounced the picnic an enjoyable outing and Mr. Gamble a perfect host.

J ing city hall By JIMM1E h:AYE BROWNI.' OLYMPIA, Aug. S--County bud- get will meet on the first Monday in October to fix amounts of expenditures of public monies for their counties during 1!133. Since last year--with few excep- tions-every county in the state ias re.duced assessed wduations. The bud- gets will be based on these lowered values. This means that if the levy is made on the same millage as last year there will be a heavy falling off in revenue. There, should be com- paratively heavy slashings in expen- ditures. The taxpayer now faces the sue- end phase of the fight for reducing' cost of government. The assessors have slashed assessed valuations. Un- less ,the budgets can be pruned cor- respondingly, instead of a tax reduc- tion on the tax bill there will be an increase. The natural move on the part of the tax spen(lers is to hang on to (very possible dollar. The inclina- tion will be to raise as much money in 1933 as was scheduled for 1932. But with heavy reduced assessed val- ues, to do this without itlcreased t-tx- es will bc impossible. It behooves every taxpayer, big and little to start bearing dvwn on the budget bodies, right now and continue to keep this pressure on un- til after tim meetings in O('tober. If the Legislature, or rather the State Senate of 1931 has seen fit to adopt House Bill 17, the bud,get com- nfission plan, there would have been no danger of the budget makers in- cryasing taxes this year. In fact with lowered valuations the budget com- mission would have seen to it that no county, school or port (listrict ov city wouhl be allowed to increase the millage levies irrespective of the de- mands which might be nade. This was the intent of the bill. It would have placed the budgets under rigid control. Itowevcr, the pressure from some of the school districts and the larger counties who feared such a situation as is now faced, that of lowered assessed ;aluations, killed the bill. The opponents of the plan real- ized that a fair budget commission wouhl not permit increases o raise the sanle lnOliey "tS scheduh,d last year. The fight is now to force the bud- gets down to be(l rock. barn when the mule took actton. 1 Get the vote registered.
