To avoid these ia.x increases
while still doing a splendid job
for our institutions, I have pro-
posed the issuance of S3C.000.000
in building bonds. Our people will
'"te on this proposal at a special
election on September 27
No Tax levy will be needed to
pay off the bonds. They will be
amortized with 2 cents of our
present 5-cent per package cig-
arette tax. Collections from thtg
source will be mure than enough
to pay off all the bonds and to
defray all interest costs without
resorting to new or increased
Bond Valua Assured
Nor will it he necessary for the
legislature to levy any new tax or,
increase any old one to replace
That portion of the cigarette tax
used to amortize building bonds. I
I have no hesitancy in assuring
the people of Oklahoma that in I
voting for the bonds they will
achieve two worthwhile object-
First they will save the insti-
tutional buildings we have and
relieve dangerously overcrowed
conditions at state institutions
Second, they will avoid an in-
mease in taxation.
