In The Legislature
’ By Leslie I. Ray
The Regular Season of the
Ninth Legislature became fully
organized last week and already
more than seventy bills have
. iieen introduced in the Lower
liduse. Some of them are of
only local importance affecting
one or two counties, others are
of small importance affects the
whole state while some import*
ant bills will go to the various
committees this week. Some of
'the proposed laws are:
(loose joint resolution propos*
ing a constitution of amendment
.ind providing for a graduated
land tax. H. B. No. 23 which
would authorize the governor to
appoint nine Supreme Court
Commissioners. H. B. No 26, to
refund taxes collected for fiscal
year of 1921. This bill if passed
would mean the paying back to
Harper County taxpayers of
shout $10,000.00 and to Beaver
County a sum much larger. H.
M. No. 29. providing for a state
income tax. H. B. No. 33,
would authorize the governor to
pay a reward for the capture of
Fred Dennis, ex-bank examiner.
H B. No. 47. would make tax
valuation rendered by public ser-
vice corporations the basis for
rates fixed by public service cor-
porations. H. B. No. 56, to im-
prove transportation of school
children in rural districts.
A joint Concurrent Resolution
providing for an investigating
committee to investigate the
prices charged for building ma-
terials was adopted.

somebody there to look after the
interests of the schools, and that
coats money. The assessments
are coming in very slowly. Our

Please send in your assess-
ments. The weaker districts
should respond because they are
more ih need of help. The strong-
er shouli because they c»n afford
it. Theoue room school should
only have to pay $5.00 each. If
you have no other way of raising
it, some public spirited could pay
from his own pocket. This was
done in one weak district by a
comparatively poor man.

106,327 Ford Cars and
Trucks Retailed in
Approximately the same number scheduled
for delivery this month
What Does This Mean?
This volume of deliveries to actual owners is entirely
unprecedented for this time of the year—
It has taxed the manufacturing ability of the Ford
plants working at full capacity—
It indicates a volume of business during the rapidly
approaching months of “heavy demand” which will
be far beyond the maximum production schedule
which the Ford Motor Company has set—
And that means a Ford shortage even more acute
than the one which existed last Spring and Summer.
Dealers’ stocks all over the country are low—there
are no reserves to draw upon to meet the demands
There is no way in which dealer reserves can be built
up, as deliveries have been made to customers as
fast as Cars could be manufactured since last April.
The only way you can protect your desire to obtain
prompt delivery of a Ford even at this time is to
place your order immediately.
This emphasizes more strongly than anything we could
possibly say the necessity of your making prompt
arrangmnts with a Ford Dealer for the listing of
your ordr, particularly if you ar contemplating the
purchas of a Ford Car or Truck for use this Spring
We believe you are entitled to know these facts as
they actually exist.
