Attend the Chautauqua
The Chickasha Jliautaupia presented under Hie auspices of the
local Merchants association will open tomorrow afternoon and will
continue for six days with three sessions daily. The morning ses-
sions are designed wholly for Hie children an especially arranged
program of plays games etc. under trained supervisors being of-
lercd. In die at tcrnomis and evenings concerts popular lectures
etc. will be given. A glance at the program for the week should
be sufficient; to convince anybody that the entertainments will be
Considering the high class of attractions provided' the cost of
the Chautauqua course is exceedingly low. The charges for all the
entertainments if a special ticket to each is bought amounts to
nearly .fS but season tickets are sold for $2.75. Jt will be economy
to buy a season ticket even though you attend less than half of the
entertainments. These tickets should be bought before the opening
of the Chautauqua in order that die guarantors of the enterprise
may receive credit for the sale of them.
At the Chaulauqqua you will hear uplifting lectures some hu
morous and some serious good music and clever acting and you will
come in contact with some of the brainiest men in the country who
win nave messages to instruct and inspire. There will be plenty of
fun and pleasure the programs being prepared with a view to pleas
ing nie popular taste hut something more substantial will also lie
mingled with laughter and smiles.
v.o-operauon on ine part of the community is required to make
n ( hautauqua a success. It is a community enterprise audi every
no.iy should give it unstinted support. Attend the opening session
tomorrow anernooii. it you catch the spirit of it vow will be a
Chautauqua "fan" for the rest of the week.
Why an Increased Levy?
By order of the county excise board and the city authorities a
special election will be held in Chickasha August SI at which time
the question of an increased tax levy for municipiU purposes will be
submitted to the voters. Under the law the maximum levy allowed
for dty purposes is six mills but the excise board und the mayor
and council have found that this levy will not. afford sufficient
revenues to meet the needs of the coming year. It is proposed to
ask the voters to authorise an increase of one and Tour-tenths mills.
In explanation of the existing situation. Mayor Durbin submitted
the following statement to the excise board when the budget was
i t fin i t . i .
j ne estimates ix-nig stHimilted to you are made up in general
of the estimates submitted by the heads' of the various departments
of the city reduced by approximately thirteen per cent. This re-
duction was madie by the mayor and council not because the de-
mands of the department heads were exorbitant or unreasonable
but in order to keep the tax levy as low as possible and within the
"If it is true however as reported that 'the assessed valuation
oi city property is aliout one and a quarter million less than last
year then the revenue which the city is asking is considerably more
than will be obtained from a six mill levy. Lf this is the case your
board ha authority either to cut our estimates still furtheror to
call a special election in which the question of an increased levy will
be submitted to the voters of the city.
"Much as we may regret to ask die citizens to provide more
revenue with which to carry on the business nf the city 1 feel that
we cannot do otherwise without shirking our duty.
"If the appropriation that is made shall be much less than the
estimate practically every department of th.e city will be unable to
give even reasonable service. For illustra.t ion" it is believed that j
..i least one ori.ige on i.mo creek must be closed as unsafe for use.
It is probable that improvements at the water works already begun
must be discontinued though sanitary engineers and the Shite
Hoard of Health insist Hiat those are necessary. It is clear that
lliere will be no cemetery lots for sale miles additional land is pro-
vided. I will not. undertake to predict what might happen within
the jurisdiction of the police and fire departments.

"As you may recall the maximum rate for citv purposes named
in the constitution is ten mills. In. 1010 tbi.s was reduced bv statute
io six mills. J n i:n.s the rate was still furth
as it is todav.
Since that tune the cost of labor and material has enor.nouslv
increased and. though people expect and state and federal author!-
lies demand more and better service the revenues provided are the
same and will be even less the coming year.
