FIND WOMAN'S BODY IN CREEK Mrs. Sadie Meade Ewer Had Been Missing Several Hours QUICKENS AS SESSION NEARS Will Not Sanction Further New. Methods Of Taxation By JIMMIE KAYE BROWNE OLYMPIA, Dec. i3Governor-e- lect Clarence D. Martin intends to "revitalize" the state tax commission. The day he takes office, unless Governor Hartley acts within the next few days, Governor Martin can take the first step along these lines. He can fill the vacancy on tire pres- ent commission and have one of his own followers on the job at once. Tbis will be only tbe beginning. The tax problem is the one big outstanding thing' which the new ad- ministration faces. At this time it is without doubt the most important issue to be faced, and the new state officers are in a most difficult and trying place. The 40-mill limitation act, as ap- proved by tire voters, is the cause of the present speculation. Under the provisions of this act which places a limitation of 40-mills upon taxes for state, county and municipalities but does not reach down into the local taxing units like dikes and drainage, schools and roads, etc., the state must stay at not to exceed five mills anti counties .at ten. Need No New Method There is no need of seeking new methods of taxation. To start with the 1933 session of the Legislature will not approve such proposals un- lesshey are modeled on a pattern of "sw#tting the rich," and there are no rich in this state.
