What a momentous era this is for the ecologists, What a momentous era this is for the appointive bureaucrats. Job after job, family after family, com- munity after community have and are being economically slaughtered. President Nixon wants a three per cent federal sales tax -- he wants more of your money. Governor Evans also wants more of your money. The few of you who are left -- that is, taxpayers -- you are the goose that is laying the golden egg. But, alas, do the politicians andbureau- crats realize that the goose that lays the golden egg may not survive? In other words, hundreds of additional em- ployees in this county, as well as else- where will be jobless and their families ** Will sufferim~aeasurably.. A Bo!!evue businessman by the name of Gould, who has a yen for the mansion in Impasse Committee (From Page I) , , on four points: (I) has not negotiated in good faith, (2) has failed to submit written pro- posals, (3) has failed to comply with the ground rules of the agreement and (4) has failed to abide by its published legal notices of public meetings as prescribed by law.!' The law provides that upon the request of either the school board or the education asso- ciation, such a committee shall be appointed Coming on February 8 is a maintenance and operation levy for 13 mills, which you as the voter will approve or disapprove. The Monroe School Board, three of whose members were just elected a few months ago, have requested the resignation of the Monroe IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII~I~III~IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII~IIIIIIII~III~I~IIII~IIIIIIIII~IIIII~II~IIII~IIII~IIIIIII~III~IIIIIIIIII~I Superintendent of Public Schools. The two events are unrelated. On Tuesday, January 25, the State Superintendent of Public Instruction's office cancelled the Advisory Committee on Monroe Professional Negotiations Impasse meeting, originally scheduled for Wednesday, January 26, because of inclement weather, •according to Monroe Board of Education President, Dorris Biderbost. She also reported that the state office indicated the meeting would not be rescheduled until sometime late next Week, due to other state impasse activities in the Wenachee School District. Approval or disapproval of the levy should be based solely on its merits. You, as the voter, should determine whether or not the school district really needs it or whether, in view of the depression, it should tighten its belt. That is your decision. Under no circumstances should this levy be used as an outlet for disapproval of the School Board's policy concerning the Superintendent. There are other ways of registering disapproval of the School Board's policy concerning the Superintendent. There are other ways of reg- istering disapproval of a Board action, ranging from recall to getting in contact with your local Board members. The levy is not a reliable means of regis- tering disapproval of a specific Board action. There is no way of determining the number who voted "No" in serious rejection of the IIIIIIII"IIIIIII|IIIIIIII"IIIIII"IIIIII'IIIIIIIIII"IIIIII"IIIII'II"I"IIIIIII""IIIIIIII~mII"IIIIII~IIIIIIII~IIM levy. Monroe School levies have seldom passed by the state superintendent. Its membership is to include representation of educators and school board members. Its report must be completed in 20 days from receipt of the official request, making it due by Feb. 3. Serving as chairman of the five-man com- mittee will be Robert K. Johnson, superinten- with a great majority. In this time of uncertain economic condition, the defeat of a levy could follow for this reason alone. Any attempt to equate the defeat of the levy with support of the Superintendent is doomed to failure. There are no grounds for equating the two. One other point. By law, you as the voter, dent, Oak Harbor S.D., Oak Harbor (Island must decide upon a special levy. But also by law, your elected representatives, the School County). Representing the state superintendent's Board, have the authority to decide who is to office will be L.O. Griffith, consultant for administrative services. Representing the attorney general will be Gerald Coe, assistant attorney general assigned to the state school office. The four committee members are: Ted Johns, Jr., member, Board of Director, Northshore School District; John Lackland, member, Board of Directors, Mercer Island School District; John Morrell, teacher, Everett School District; and Clyde Scott, teacher, Seattle School District. !

They are privy to more information concerning the qualifications of' various personnel than you are, and in order not to jeopordize their position, they must remain silent concerning much of this in- formation. The February 8 levy is not a question of personalities, but a question of money. You are being asked to answer that question of money, nothing more, nothing less.

Unfortunately, there are over 100,000 adults in this state on welfare. There are over 250,000 tax paid employees. Each can control or influence at least one additional vote. That makes at least 700,000 dedicated votes for more taxes. With 60 per cent of all voters in the state oriented to spending more and more tax dollars every year, the tax payer is now the most oppressed of all minority groups ..... " In our opinion Mr. Gould's calculations are extremely conservative. State Senator William A. Gissburg of this district, along with Senator August Mardesich of the 38 district, last week were instrumental in the instigation of a probe of the pulp mill crisis in Everett. The crisis, brought about by bureaucrats, has jolted the already depraved economy of Snohomish County even more. The two senators, working with other sponsors, directed the Senate Committee on Manufacturing and Industrial Development to make an immediate investigation of the eminent closure of Everett paper and pulp mills.
