ARIZONA EASTERN RESISTS
STATE'S SCHOOL FUND LEVY
Phoenix Ariz.. Jan 21 Still another
legal muddle has arisen over the gen-
eral appropriation bill passed by the
legislature last spring. The Arizona
Eastern Railroad company has filed a
suit In the superior court at Safford
asking an Injunction restraining the
county authorities from making a state
school fund levy in accordance with
the Instructions of the tax commission.
A similar snit is to be filed at Tucson
and perhaps in other counties.
The legislature appropriated $100-
090 a year for schools but the gover-
nor vetoed this section and the supreme
court ruled that the annual statutory
continuing appropriation of $(00000
would hold Now the Arizona Eastern
contends that as the levy bill passed
by the legislature provided for a levj
of only $100000. and the $190000 ap-
propriation was vetoed there a" no
authority for the tax commission to
order any state school fund levy at
all Attorne genera Wile Jones
sajs that this matter is cohered by
another section of the statutes which
