the part of Department of Agri

Governor's 'Operation Honesty'
Plan Defined At
"I have some friends that think
there is something immoral about
taxes," began Governor Robert
B.. Crosby, Tuesday evening at
the Biz Ad banquet in his dis
cussion of "Morality in Taxa
tion. Speaking before a large crowd
of Biz Ad students, faculty mem
bers, and guests, Gov. Crosby
defended his new plan for equal
ized tax assessments Operation
"HOW PEOPLE will share the
burden has come to the chief
issue during my term as Gover
nor," Crosby continued, "but the
field of taxation about which
Nebraskans know the least is the
property tax, our main source of
The Governor explained how
the State Board of Equalization
became aware of the inequality
in tax assessments last year.
'"It is no piece of political for
tune that I wasn't allowed to
ignore the problem as it had
been in the past" Crosby stated.
THE NEBRASKA law provides
for assessment at full 100 per
cent evaluation uniformly and
proportionately. Since the ori
ginal law had been passed, in
1922, different counties had let
their assessments slip to as low
as 13 per cent of assessed values.
"Many predicted we didn't
have the courage to equalize the
assessments," Crosby said, "but
the Board had seen an inspiring
demonstration that local govern
ment will work, even under po
litical pressure. Twenty-three of
the 93 counties in the state had
equalized their real estate assess
ments themselves.
"THE PURPOSE of Operation
Honesty is to get a generally
honest performance on tax sched
ules. There are many skeptics,
but most people are honest"

the Governor warned, "cheats his

THE GOVERNOR explained
how the property tax is the only
basic way to get the needed tax
money. He showed how states
with both a sales tax and an in

similar to those of Nebraska.
