WOULD REDUCE EXPENDITURES
March 3, 1939.
To the Plattsmouth Journal:
It occurs to me that the people are
now realizing more than heretofore
the necessity of eliminating all un
necessary expenditure of public funds
in order that taxes may be reduced
in proportion to what property values
have been reduced in the past six
or seven years.
During this period there has been
a constant trend in state and nation
toward the creation of high salaried
boards with innumerable clerks and
employees in a systematic effort to
control and regiment all the activities
of the people and the industries of
the country. In the agricultural
State of Nebraska, the expenditure
of public funds must be reduced or
the taxes will confiscate the farm
lands and city real estate.
Instead of a reduction there is a
constantly increasing expenditure of
public funds in nation, state and
county. Isn't it time that the tax
pas'ers wake up and put an end to
all the non-essntial groups of tax
If it is necessary to assist some of
the people, why not let them go out
and raise at least a part of their
living on the acres of lands the gov
ernment has taken out of production.
The man who by industry, econ
omy and hard work having bought
and paid for a home in a city or a
farm that he might have a place to
live in comfort in his declining years,
now finds his property has a reduced
and unsalable value with an .ever in
creasing tax against it. The tax
comes first. His savings last.
