preparation of drastic legislation to lighten the crushing burden of debt under which the nation has struggled through three years of abnormal economic conditions It was spurred to action spe cial message from President Hoover and by the unqualified endorsement of leading Democratic spokesmen With unusual unanimity and non partisan accord leaders of all schools of thought rallied behind the LaGuar diaMcKeown bill This legislation would enable indi viduals and corporations to obtain a postponement and in some cases a scaling down of debts Technically the measure is a lib eralization of the Federal bankruptcy procedure Actually it contemplates revolu tionary revision to bring relief from the topheavy burdens of debts con tracted when prices were high and dollars cheap It was hailed in con gressional circles as a direct fiontal attack on the bold at tempt to adjust business to changed circumstances The measure proposes a tremendous reorganization of industrial finance and a real

Cooperation Is Imperative to Make the Move Successful At an executive session of the city school directors which lasted from 015 oclock until last midnight in the Larkin School Broad and Crosby streets an important resolution af fecting the removal of penalties on back taxes was approved by the school directors as an emergency measure to meet an anticipated shortage in I operating income and as a move in cooperation with the many taxpayers who arc already heavily burdened Officials of the board explaining the purposes of the action on the lax penalties question made the follow ing statement On the basis of the present receipts of school taxes the finance committee has reached the conclusion that unless taxpayers of this city cooperate with the board of school directors in payment of taxes now in arrears a shortage of income to meet current expenses will be in evitable and it Is possible that such shortage may reach a figure in the neighborhood of one hundred thou sand dollars It is certain now that after every economy has been put into effect the necessary income to carry on the schools will be insufficient unless the taxpayers assume their share of the responsibility nnd reduce the list of delinquent taxpayers which is at the present time largest in the history of the school district It was further stated that While present economt c conditions afTect the ability of many taxpayers to meet their taxes the directors of the board believe that many who are able to pay are awaiting possible action by the State Legislature re mitting penalties In
