The near hysteria that appears to be dominating King County school forces, as well as in other areas statewide, istaking on dangerous proportions. The cry to the legislature to resolve school financing im- mediately and forthwith, with complete disregard for both the short and long haul, is a course not the least to our liking. Representative Moon's 12 per cent cor- porate tax may partially solve school fin- ancing, but it is sure to injure the state economy. A one per cent across the board income tax will hurt the small and fixed income families when they can hardly make it now. Likewise, the sales tax would slap all in- cluding those least able to pay. An 18 per cent hike in the B & O tax again would hit the small guy, probably destroying some if not many marginal operators. A portion of each of these tax proposals could be the answer, but again, is that truly what we want? After all, it was the voters who said '(no" we do not desire additional taxes for schools. They did not say we want other taxes to take the place of our property tax. And whether the school forces like it or not, the voters may have been saying: we've had enough, we've had a belly full--you'd better start living within your budget and do some long over- due culling. The voters might also have been saying that we should take a long hard look at our public education offerings from top to bottom and revaluate what we as a com- munity and we as a state can provide. For the legislature to act now in the pressure-cooker atmosphere being gen- erated by school forces would be very un- wise. The margin for error in the wan- ing days of any legislative session is ex- tremely high We would say to the legis- lators: finish your extraordinary session, come home and find out what the folks are thinking, then go back if you must to help resolve school financing. THE WASHINGTON State Senate honored Earl Averill, third from left, on his election to the Baseball Hall of Fame during cere- monies April 11o Congratulating Averill are from left Lieutenant Governor John Cherberg, Snohomish County Commissioner Earl Torgeson, Averill, and 39th District Senator Frank Woody. The Senate Resolution, sponsored by Woody, cited Averill's distin-. guished baseball career and a "lifestyle that has earned him the respect of his fellow players, fans and fellow citizens alike" --Staff Photo river s Increase prove S hool Board d A $5 increase in driver's education fees was approved unanimously by Monroe School Board members Monday evening. Effective with this Summer's program, the course fee will be raised from $10 to $15. District Administrative Assistant Eugene El- ledge explained that about three years ago the State Superintendent of Public Instruction sug- gested that the district drop its fee from $20 to $10, which was accomplished. Now, however, Elledge said, State support for the program has decreased, necessitating the need to boost the student fee. In 1974 Elledge said the district was informed it would be reimbursed $65 per completing stu- dent, however actual reimbursements were only $55.50, with a recent $3.85 adjustment, still be- low the original expectation. While last year's program cost about $67.71 per student, estimates for this Summer's course have increased to about $72.22. The new figurer includes new textbooks and a two month $300 lease for one car. Even with the $5 increase, Elledge said the district might still have to provide a small amount of funds to cover the entire program costs. In other matters the board approved atwo day leave of absence without pay for Charles Wicki- zer to attend Army Reserve duty at West Point on June 9 and 10. The employment of Richard L. VanDe Plasch as assistant bus mechanic gained favorable ac- tion. VanDe Plash, who is currently employed as a mechanic by the Edmonds School District, will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of A1 Lorenz. Board members confirmed an administration decision for the commercial use of Frank Wag- ner Auditorium by the Monroe Cinema Coopera- tive for 10 weeks during the Summer.
