the European disarmament deadlock the proposal of Ramsay GreatxBri tain under which the United States and other signatories to the Paris peace pact would agree to consult together in event of a violation In the forthcoming international economic conversations here in which the British prime min ister and former Premier Ed ouard Herriot of France will take part the idea advanced at Geneva as

the state to cut their budgets tor 1933 and 1034 by 20 per cent of their 1030 tax millage rate will not materially affect the Mason City school district accord ing to the interpretation of the measure by local school officers The reason for this is that Mason City school board directors start ed putting their house in order sev eral years ago and have practically put into effect the reductions which the big tax reduction measure pro posed Different Picture Now The picture of the situation as it presented itself to board members school executives and teachers Tuesday morning was decidedly dif ferent from the one that loomed some weeks ago when the original BeattyBennctt bill passed the sen ate Under the provisions of the first bill there would have been a drastic wrecking of the school sys tem there putting it back to the a half century ago board members state Mason Citys situation under thi bill shows that we have done the proper thing and it is not going to affect us seriously said Willis G C Bagley president of the board We were planning to make gome reductions whether the bill was passed or not A study of the schoof boards rec ord the past 10 years shows that while there has been an increase ol 20 per cent in the enrollment in that period the schools have only 99 per cent more teachers During his same period the bonded indebt edness of the district was reduced 33 per cent and the levy reduced 21 per cent Because of having taken these steps the board can ask for exemp ions from the provisions of the bill by making a showing before the state budget director on both re luced levy and increased enroll ment In the classification in which the Iason City schools fall under the ScattyBennett bill the local school oard is not required to levy less nan for each person of school age in the district Cut Required In the last school census made in he summer of 1932 the enumera ion showed a total of 7821 persons Multiplying 7821 by 3G produces a total of S2S155S The
