In the weeks immediately past many of us have absorbed, but not swallowed, the malarky being peddled by HJR 42 (state income tax) proponents. Trying to merchandise the package is Governor Evans, as well as other note- ables including Everett's little league boy politician of the year, Mayor Robert An- derson, whose looking for Snohomish County's queen city to receive a slice of the gold ff voters decide to bilk them- selves in yet another way. Not buying the alleged tax reform are the sensible membership of the Skykomish Valley Democratic Club and the Monroe Board of Education Both organizations are on record as opposing the measure, recognizing it for what it truly represents. The thinking taxpayer can recognize a confidence game 40 mills away. HJR 42 is not tax reform--it is a new avenue into the already besiged taxpayers wallet. Futhermore, passage of the measure will not only peel the safe and open the vault doors but will fail to curb govern- ment clutching and grabbing of more and mot e of- youP:coin - - t he r e :iS no--I im Rat ion on the rates future legislatures may im- pose. Promises of property tax relief made by HJR 42 backers are nothing more than that--promises and phony-baloney ones of that.

The board and Cottam wrote to the MEA last month asking the group to take correc- tive action. In reply to the board, the MEA wrote in a letter dated October 14 and read Monday, that "in the considered opinion of the MEA Executive Board, acting upon the advice of legal counsel of the Washington Education Association, " the teacher is "fully within his legal and professional rights as to his personal appearance and mode of dress in his class- room .'" The MEA letter further stated that "in the absence of a legally adopted code of dress for the staff, either as district Policy or as adopted professional standards subscribed to by the mem- bers of the professional association, the exe- cutive board has no basis upon which to act." Cottam said he interpreted the letter as im- plying that there should be .a dress code and suggested a policy could be drawn that "everyone can llve with." The motion to form a board-faculty com- mittee to draw up the code, made by Direc- tor William Hoyden, was approved unanimous- ly. to recognize the role of the infantryman. the C I B can be awarded only to a member of an infantry unit of brigade, regi- Division's 198th Light Infantry Brigade.
