MICHIGAN SURVEY:
Revenue for State Operations
Supplied by Only 33 Counties

Only 33 of Michigan's 83 counties
were self-supporting during the fiscal
year 1944-45, according to figures
Just released by Michigan Survey, a
state taxpayers organization.
Washtenaw County was one of the
self-supporting counties appearing on
the Survey list.
These 33 counties produced more
in estimated state revenues than they
received through state , payments
benefiting local government, accord-
ing to Henry Steffens, Survey direc-
tor. "Even this low figure represents
an improvement over the fiscal year
1944, when there were only 31 self-
supporting counties," he added.
Surplus Distributed
An estimated $109,000,000 in state
revenue was produced by the 33 self-
supporting counties, of which nearly
0O,000,000 was distributed among the
other 50 counties, according to the
Survey figures. The remaining $103,-
000,000 was used for purely state
purposes.

"Thus the 33 self-supporting coun-
ties not only carried the entire finan-
cial burden of state operations,,'
Steffens said, "but also contributed
approximately $6,000,000 to their fel-
low counties."
Michigan taxpayers produced near-
ly $425,000,000 in state and local rev-
enues in 1944-45. The Survey release
indicates that approximately 92.3 per'
cent of this total was produced by
taxpayers in the self-supporting
counties. On an average, the non-
self-supporting counties received one
dollar in net state aid for every $2.33
they raised themselves.
Washtenaw County raised more
than $4,200,000 in state revenue dur-
ing the fiscal year 1944-45, an esti-
mated 1.91 per cent of the total state
revenue. It received state payments
totalling more than $1,500,000, which
means that it contributed approxi-/
mately $2,700,000 for state purposes
and the support of non-self-support-
ing counties.

Dollar Apiece
Is WSSF Goal
In Tag Drive
(Coninued from Page 1)
Although the world goal of the
relief group is two million dollars,
drive officials state that a minimum
of five million is necessary to serve
the needs of the 400,OOQ students
in devastated countries.
Distribution of Funds
Europe will receive 44 per cent of
the funds raised, the Far East, a
similar amount and the remainder
will be divided between administra-
tive expenses and emergency funds.
Following World War I, two and
a half million dollars were raised by
students throughout the world for
students relief, of which one million
dollars were given by American stu-
dents and professors.
Recreation and Education
During the war the WSSF used
its funds for recreation and educa-
tion of prisoners of war and student
refugees.
This year, students and professors
in fourteen of the countries, many of
them hit by the war, will contribute
to the fund.
Miss Stauffer stated that although
there are many other relief agencies
operating, the WSSF differs in being
a "distinctly student to student shar-
ing plan."

Supper discussions will be held by
