Taxes and Cost to consumer duplicating and hidden taxes paid first to Federal and then to state governments whenever and wherever gasoline is purchased make a widening River of taxation deluding motorists with a higher Cost. These taxes Force motorists to pay one third More for motor fuel levied to finance highways sales taxes on motor fuel Cost Only $1,000,000 in 1919, or a few cents per Motorist. In 1936 the Cost was dose to $900,000,000, or Over $30 per Motorist. Estimates for 1937 indicate a total Cost of nearly $1,000,000,000, greatest in history. Despite the enormous increase in Cost proportionately less of the Revenue is being used for highways. Millions of dollars Are diverted to general purposes thus causing neglect of roads and menacing Public safety. These levies which constitute a retail sales tax sometimes exceeding 40%, highest Ever levied on an essential commodity make the Motorist americans taxpayer no. I. Another big gasoline taxpayer is the Farmer who owns and operates about one fourth of All motor vehicles. Diversion of Road Money to general purposes hits him hard because he pays expensive taxes for roads which never Are built biggest tax collector is the service station operator one third of whose time equipment and labor consists of collecting taxes from his own customers Hope for improvement is seen by automobile clubs taxpayers organizations and Petroleum industries committees in the growing sentiment for repeal of the Federal gasoline and Oil taxes and for amendments to state constitutions confining the use of gasoline tax income to roads. It is believed also that the continuing increase in motor vehicle registrations and in gasoline consumption soon will make possible the reduction of gasoline tax rates thereby curtailing costs to each taxpayer.

A a h Macy Street and the school which was built about 60 years ago were named after or. Shed Macy j came line Iron Indiana Brough Cajon pass in 1850. He was he first american doctor Here. At me time he had charge of tin1 Bella Union hotel South of the Plaza. In it Rev Davs the hotel a s the most famous place of its kind on the coast. Within recent years the creation j if the los Angeles civic Center j in the building of the huge City Hall has necessitated the realign i Nguk of crooked streets and of i Ter ated Many historic Sites Only a Surveyor could relocate them. Probably the oldest building in los Angeles still in use is the Church of our lady of the Angels West of he Plaza. So far As known it is the Only building extant that antedate both the american occupation and the mexican regime for it was built during the Spanish Era of the Pueblo. The Church was built originally in 1815, which destroyed the newly built and the original Plaza the present Church and Plaza Sites were chosen. This was in 1818, it took four years to Complete the Church due to the slowness of the workers and a Lack of sufficient Cash. When funds ran out. The mis ions that had been founded by Junipero Serra and the franciscan padres were called on for Aid. Contributions were various and of sorts. No Money was received but san Miguel Mission sent 500 cows san Luis Obispo 200 Santa Barbara a barrel of its Brandy san Diego two barrels of White port Purisima six Large mules and 200 cows san Gabriel two and san Fernando one barrel of native Brandy. Old records say the citizens soon converted the liquor into Cash y buying it in gallon and quart lots As Well As drink by drink. Through the Zeal and labor of padre Payeras the Church was finally completed. It was dedicated december 18, 1822. Local history strangely enough has Little to say of this Pioneer Churchman. The Church was remodeler in 1861. The front that projected into main reef was Cut Back to the sidewalk. The tile roof was replaced by shingles and the curates House a Small Adobe was razed and a Brick House erected in its Stead. Grounds on the North were enclosed some whet As now. The present Church building and its surroundings which actually Date Back nearly 120 years Bear Small outward resemblance to the Neuva Iglesia As the Church was known after Tho 1815 flood. At one time and another it has been the starting place of everything that j has happened in Las Angeles. With the rebuilding of this Section of town it is Likely again i soon to become the Center of activities.
