Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1950, Winona, Minnesota YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO VOTE- POLLS CLOSE AT 8 P.M.

Last night's board action easily overrode the council veto of the ten-mill levy and was taken by unanimous agreement of the eight board members present at the reg- ular September session. On the roll call vote. Board Pres- ident John Borzyskowski, Clarence P. Hartner, Dr. P. A. Mattison, Hale A, Stow, Gocrge W. Richman, Arthur F. Bowm-in and Harry P. Zywlck! ill voted in favor of main- taining the ten-mill levy for anoth- er year. Dr. Philip v.R. Keise, the. other board member, had notified the board that other commitments prevented him from attending last night's session. Actually, the board needed only seven "Yes" votes to muster the three-quarter majority required by law to override the council veto. Also significant was the fact that in the two previous years In which the board has failed to comply with the council request for a re- duced sinking fund levy, there was some discussion among members over the matter of the levy. No Compromise Last night, however, no hint of compromising on the previously- passed ten-mill figure entered In- to the budget discussion. An important factor in this re- spect, probably, is that in the two previous instances of council rejec- tion of the board-approved levy, aldermen requested that a lower levy be used until an actual build- UrOgi alTl W 35 Illll-ld-fccU.

Last July the school board ap- proved a budget for the fiscal year beginning April 1, 1951, with 897.35 requested for the general school fund and the ten-mill levy for the sinking fund. Several days later, the finance committee of the city council re- turned the proposed budget to the board with the notation that it approved the general school fund budget but recommended that the levy for r.he sinking fund be reduced to five r-.iihs.

Dragged By Under Water Craft Portland, Me. Crew- men of two Portland fishing: draggers have returned from a mysterious ocean tow ride which, they say, scared thenr to dsath, off Brier Island, N, S. Skippers of the 110-foot Cher- okee and tlie 86 foot Evzone told a strange story of how their vessels were towed help- lessly last Wednesda-y night by an underwater object they could not see. Was it zi submarine? Prob- aWy, say Skippers Arthur .W. and Thomas Jordan. They told a newsman it might have been a Russian sub but added that their surmise was based only on their understanding that no American subs were in the area and that Canada has none. Could it have been a whale? No, the skippers say, because whales cannot stay submerged for such lonff periods The tow rides followed each other1. The JEvzone was towed an hour and a Salt, the Chero- kee about 25 minutes. Both craft had their stems dragged beneath the waiter by a terrific haul. They were freed when their cables snapped from whatever was lugging them.

Stephen Early Quits As Deputy Defense Chief Washington Stephen Ear- ly resigned today as deputy sec- retary of defense. President Truman accepted the resignation, effective September 30, saying he did so reluctantly. The White House said Early has been trying to quit since he com- pleted the one year of duty he agreed to serve when he accepted the. appointment May, 1949. He is to return to his post as a vice- president of Pullman, Incorporat- ed. Presidential Secretary Charles G. .Ross, who announced Early's action, declined again to comment on a report by a highly placed presidential adviser that Secretary of Defense Johnson is on his way out of the cabinet. Total Budget Slightly Over Monthly Pay Raise to Firemen, Policemen Voted By Adolph Brcmer For the first time in a long time, city of Winona taxes may be down next year. It's still a maybe, however. When the city council sat down- before 1951-52 departmental esti- mates last night for the first time, .he totals looked like this: Including school requirements, which would be about less than for the current year. Then, in four hours of discus- sion, the aldermen: 1. Agreed, with the fire and police board present, to give all city employes up to a- i-monih wage boost next May 1. That'll require about 2.

By October 2, .the council has to make up its mind about the en- tire budget. Whatever, it does adopt can be coupled, by the taxpayers, with the smaller tax budget approv- ed by the county board of com- missioners.
