Taxpayer sues city
for illegal tax levy

city has in the past added this
sum to the amount it raises by
special, levy for the other parts
of its pension plan. Since 1964 it
has levied $419,129 for payment of
its social security liabilities.
Concerning the third tax, the
garbage collection levy, Carpenter
charges the city is using funds
collected under this tax for rub-
bish collection which is not in-
cluded in the state law authorizing
the tax.
Carpenter believes the cost of
garbage collection alone does not
exceed 25 per cent of the combined
costs of both garbage and rub-
bish collection.
According to Carpenter's cal-
culations, the city since 1964 has
levied $1,652,456 in excess taxes
over and above the funds needed
for garbage collection alone.
The case is being tried by John
C. Dalton, a Jackson County Cir-
cuit Court Judge. Dalton was call-
ed in to hear the case because
presiding Judge James R. Brea-
key, Jr.' said his relations with
Carpenter concerning local cases
would prejudice his handling of a
case with Carpenter as plaintiff.
City officials have said they are
puzzled over Carpenter's motives
for the suit. One official said Car-
penter was pushing for a muni-
cipal income tax to replace the

taxes which he charges are illegal
However, Carpenter said yester
day his real complaint was tha
the city officials "weren't playinE
by the rules" and that "they wer
guilty of incredible negligence b3
not knowing the limits of th
city's taxation powers."

ahead with it anyway. Ross point-
ed out however, "now the write-ir
is like voting for Dick Gregory,
though there is a remote chance
that if the election is extremel3
close, we can demand that our
votes be counted."
Ross admitted that the ,group
should not have asked Kelley for
his opinion on the write-in. He
also said that a greater effor
should have been made to submit
their electors by the Sept. 3 filing
date. They would then have beer
placed on the ballot, and a write-
in would not have been necessary,

centrating on obtaining a coffee
shop to serve as a meeting place
for those interested in politics.

terday to endorse a class boycott

a course on racism whose main
lecturer. is Black Panther Eldridge

called last Friday, failed to keep
a sizeable number of students
away from classes,
Yesterday's vote had no immed-
iate effect on attendance, but stu-
dent leaders said they were wait--
ing until this morning when the
news becomes widespread.
At the rally, student body pres-
ident Charlie Palmer and Kon-
stantine Barlandt, editor of the
student newspaper, the Daily Cal;
began a fast to call attention to
their demands.
In a statement made to the stu-
dent body they announced, "we
will not eat until the people of
this state and the people they
have placed in power will recog-
nize our humanity."
They called upon the regents,

Former Presidential advisor The-

that, "we spend too much time

enough time listening to them."
"The new Congress must ad-
dress itself to their concern," he
added.
Sorensen, former aid to both
President John F. Kennedy and
Senator Robert F. Kennedy, was
speaking on behalf of the caidi-
dacy of former Congressman Wes-
ton E. Vivian, who Is currently en-
gaged in a close race with Repub-
lican Congressman Marvin Esch
for the second, Congressional spot.
"If this onrushing stream of call
for change goes into narrow chan-
