SCHOOL TAX CARRIES
Hereford Independent District Votes
50 Cents Maintenance Tax
Nine Months School.
The vote last Wednesday on the
school tax was carried by a good
safe majority, there bdng 121 votes
cast in favor of t'ix an i JO against
it. There was some .pprehension
that the tax measure wou.d rail on
account of placing the limit of 50
cents, but when the intention of the
board was explained, many who
were opposed to the measure voted
in its favor and a few who had al-
ready cast their votes against it
would have voted for it, if they could
have recalled their vote. It was
;thought that the board intended to
levy the limit, but it was learned
that only 25 or 30 cents would be
needed and that the trustees were
acting in fair and good faith in ask-
ing the voters to give them the latti-
j tude. Some did not understand that
' the old tax of 20 cents had been ab-
' rogated and were under the impres-
sion that the organization of the in-
dependent district would add 50
cents more to the tax rate. This
was not true. A nine months school
is thus assured and Hereford has re-
j tained her good name for progres-
siveness in every educational line.
L. J. Dodson of Lorena, cashier
Firt National Bank of that city, is

agreeably surprised to find the town
so much improved.
