It would be grossly unfair to say that holding the election was unwise or a waste of money, as some of the more rash to judge are saying.. And it wo ld be equally unfair to say, as some are saying, that the people of Jefferson County have no interest in providing adequate school facilities. The truth of the matter [s that notwithstanding the "de+- feat" of the proposal, the election returns provide an excell- ent barometer of what the thinking in the County is. And that thinking is that a majority of those who voted want school improvement and are even willing to vote for a tax increase to get it, and that a majority also want some meas- ure of school cOrmolidation. The fact that sixty percent did not vote this way does not alter the fact that more than fifty percent did. + , The question how is, having failed to get the required sixty percent majority in an election, does this mean that a pro- gram of school consolidation and school improvement is dead ? The answer is, No. But to understand the answer one needs to know and understand some facts about West Virginia's somewhat novel tax structure. Thirty-five years ago, in the midst of the Great Depression the people of West Virginia adopted an amendment to the State Constitution which placed a limitation on the amount of taxes that could be levied on real and personal property: five dollars per thousand dollars valuation on all Class I prop- erty, ten dollars per thousand dollars valuation on all Class II, fifteen dollars per thousand on all Class III, and twenty dollars per thousand dollars at+ all Class IV property. There was and is nothing wrong with he tffhitation. Where the trouble lay was in the fact that as the demands and needs of the times increased .... and school needs were among the most critical .... the assessment remained static. When edu- cational demands and needs reached the point of where they far exceeded the amount of revenue that could be consti- tutionally exacted from property taxes, attempts were made to solve the problem by sttch devices as a consumer sales tax, state aid, and later, federal aid. Finally, the tax limitat- ion amendment Was itself amended authorizing the issuance of bond.s provided the bonds did not exceed a certain amount and provided further sixty percent of the voters in the af- fected area approved. It was pm'suant to this latter authority that an attempt made in Jefferson County last Tuesday to get $1,7!0,000 for schools. The move failed. Meanwhile, for the past few years a move has been under- way in West Virginia to take a good second look at the assessed value of all taxable property. It was felt that While the Constitution forbade raising the rate on the various classes of property, the potential income from property taxes could be greatly increased by increasing the assessment. For example, if a Pesidence property with a fair market value of $20,000 was Only being assessed at $5,000, and should be assessed at $10,000 (fifty percent of it+ true and actual val- ue) the income to the county c0uld be doubled by simply assessing the property properly without touching the rate. So, with at least m me idea 6f rtll+kiti bond issues, which are hard to pass, partially obsolete, the-:[eg slature a few years ago ordered all the counties in West Virginia to revise and revamp their assessments. Jefferson County is now in the process of doing just that- with the result that every lad[cat- on now points towards a substantialb increased assessment base for next year, For example, if this yeax s assessment of approximately 45 million dollars should jump next year to approximately 60 million dollars and the rate of taxation remained exactly the same as it is now the County would be provided with whatever additional money the 15 million dollar increase in assessment furnished without any special election and without any additional bonded indebtedness. In other words, mo ey which can now enly be made available by a special election may in the very near future be available by a simple majm ty vote of eitker thqBo t l, of Educ, tion or the Gounty CouP, as the case maybe. And if the potential made available by increased assessments should still prove to be inadequate, resort can still be had to a special election. For this reason, tnembership JV ,the future on the Board of Education and on the County Cou takes on extremely added signifigance. For it is not at all unlikely that as tile assessment base increases the membership on these bodies will determine what we shall do and what we shall not do in the future.

Dear Mr. Brown: Have you ever seen a frolic- some, friendly young dog trans. formed in a moment into a fear- ful, pathetic creature that can- not move its own hind legs? That happened to our dog last week. A station wagon came through Lee. town, struck the dog, and drove right on, without even stopping to try to help. The poor animal dragged herself to the edge of the road, and lay there until our good neighbor phoned us to tell us what had happened. We will not know for about a month whether she will ever walk again, though she has shown sore improvement This is our fourth dog in six years. Two were killed on the road . one struck so hard his collar was ripped right off. Neither was chasing cars, nor was the injured dog. Perhaps we should confine our dogs all the time. we have kept them penned as much as possible, or in the house, but they do need a chance to run occasionally. It was unus- ual for this last dog to be in the road at all without being on a leash.
