Cites Minnesota Example
An experiment of zoning a county
in Minnesota so that certain sections
can be put to specific uses only is
working out very well, he stated, and
from all indications may prove to be
a means of slashing state taxes. In
this particular county, a certain area
is restricted to forest and recrea-
tional purposes only thus doing away
with needs for good roads, schools
and other public officials. In one case
cited, it cost $375 to educate a child
n a thinly populated area whereas
it cost only $40 to educate a child
in a more densely populated area.

E. W. Tinker, United States Forest
&rvice, told of the work being done
at the Chippewa National Forest. He.
said that the forest had taken in
more in receipts than it bad spent,
and said that much valuable infor-
mation was being obtained at the
forest preservation.
Harold Titus, Michigan Conserva-
tion Commission, told how the land
in the upper part of the state may
be made more valuable by stocking
the ivers with fish and breeding
game. He stated that the land
around Alpena had increased in,
value considerably by such methods,
as many hunting clubs had organized
in that region, thus putting back on
the tax roll land which had formerly
been given back to the state. More
co-operation from the legislature is
needed to carry out the work, how-

or no revenue from property and in-t

Some form of taxation which will
bring in immediate revenue must
be devised for the present, since it is
impossible to decrease the budget for
public expenditures further, stated
M. F. Thurston, formerly of the Uni-
versity of Detroit, in his paper on
"Some Suggested Changes in the
Michigan Tax Structure." A general
sales tax on all retail products, heavy
amusement taxes, and a varied lux-
ury tax were suggested as the most
possible sources of revenue. With the
return of more stable economic con-'
ditions Mr. Thurston maintained
that the income tax should be
equalized and enforced.
Suggests State Loans
The impossibility of expecting any,
returns from the present system of
property taxation was brought out
by R. Wayne Newton, secretary of
State Commission of Inquiry into
Cost of Local Government, when he
spoke on "Tax Delinquency in Michi-
"With the state's policy of remov-
ing the penalty for late payment of
taxes, fewer men attempt to pay on
time," Dr. Newton said. "A possible
solution would be for the state to
make loans to counties and munici-
palities to cover outstanding debts,
which would be gradual payment of
delinquent taxes."
Funds from the state are necessary
to carry on the administration of un-
employment relief, said W. J. Horton,
late chairman of Mayor's Emergency
Relief Committee in Detroit, since
the Reconstruction Finance Corpora-
tion will soon refuse aid unless better
management of state funds is made.
Unemployment relief work is destined
to extend for several years and can
no longer be considered a local re-
sponsibility, Mr. Horton concluded.
The subject of the speech was "Pub-
lie Unemployment Relief Expendi-
tures in Michigan."
Rural Schools Discussed
A plah to reorganize the distribu-
tion of the Primary School Fund,
partially appropriated by the state,
in order to equalize the aid given to
various districts was the basis of the
speech given by F. M. Thurn, of
Michigan State College. He showVed
charts to illustrate the advantages of
closing badly equipped rural schools
by a change in the distribution of
students. "Rural School District Re-
organization and Financing" was thek
subject of his speech.
Prof. Morris A. Copeland of the
