Lumber Man
Claims Taxes
Are Too High
Rate On Timbered Lands
P r o h i b i t s Ownership,'
Says McCallum
"With taxes constantly on the rise,
timber owners cannot afford to own
real estate," declared George P. Mc-
Callum, president of the Detroit,
Mackinac, and Marquette Land Com-
pany, yesterday morning in a talk
before members of the School of For-
estry and Conservation.
Speaking from the point of view
of the private owner, Mr. McCallum
stated that the one factor that pro-
longs destructive logging is the un-
bearable tax burden. "Owners have
adopted the policy of cleaning out
their forests just as fast as they can
accomplish it," he said.
"The only other possibility, when
taxes are 23 cents per acre per year
and one is lucky to get rid of the land
at $1 per acre, is to let it revert to
the state. In one township in north-
ern Michigan 69 per cent of the land
has gone back to the state because
of delinquent taxes."
Conferences Avail Nothing
Conferences among owners will
avail nothing as long as taxes remain
where they are now, according to Mr.
McCallum, who was instrumental in
starting the meetings of timberland
owners held here annually.
Mr. McCallum went on to denounce
government ownership and manage-
ment and to ridicule the "hired men"
in government forestry services. He
urged the students in his audience to
aspire to become leaders in private
enterprises contributing something to
the betterment of our forestry situa-
Tax Burden Falls on Land
In his discussion of the tax prob-
lem, he mentioned the tax limitation
amendmentipassed at the November
election as a hopeful move. "I voted
for it," he said, "not because I con-
sider it a good measure in itself, but
because it will force state and local
governments to reconsider their
whole tax systems."
Mr. McCallum pointed out that
while real estate forms one-half the
wealth of the state, and contributes
one-fifth of the income, it pays 85
per cent of the taxes.
Three million acres of privately-
owned forest land remains in the up-
per and northern half of the south-
ern peninsulas, and there is where
constructive f o r e s t management
should be applied, he said. He main-
tained that that policy is more im-
portant than reforesting the nine
million acres of cutover land in
northern Michigan.
To support his contention against
government ownership of the produc-
tive timber lands, he quoted President
Hoover's message to Congress Tues-
day in which the President declared
against the government's competing
in business with private enterprises
Mn. McCallum also stressed the fact
that other parts of the state, espe-
cially Wayne County, take up the
tax burdenofngovernment land
which pay nothing.
Government Reorganization
As a primary move for economy, he
suggested that townships be wiped
out and that counties be consolidat-
ed. He cited the village of Grand
Marais in the upper peninsula as an
excellent example of inefficiency and
extravagance at the expense of an
iron company. there which pays a
huge majority of the taxes.
"The company discovered that it
could have taken its money that it
paid in taxes, transported the people

of the township to Detroit, put them
up at the Book-Cadillac hotel at.
regular day rates, and still have come
out ahead," Mr. McCallum said.
