were not even water customers of the city
and would not be affected by the tax. Most of l
the 43 non-customers didn't even live in the
City limits of Port St. Joe; In our rough figures
this left approximately 155 signers of the peti- i
tion who had a right to complain in the first
place. About half of these signatures were hus-
band and wife which left approximately 83 of
829 water customers protesting the tax. Just
how would you, Mr. Citizen, react in the face
of this "voice of the' people"? If you were on
the commission and were familiar with the dire
heed of more room at. the hospital, you would
have voted for the measure.
I'll be the first to admit that it is a bad
. thing to have to tax 'water and sewer service to
finance anything. As Charlih Wilson says, "it is
- a necessity". We realize that. We also realize
'that this is a growing city and that every bond-
able income is tied up by the ,.:' to ..:
the building of services of the city which do
.not come cheap. All revenue was 3I'-.: 1f .to
some operation or another and it .was necessary
-to. find other revenue. A search "- the
records of the Florida League of 1 I,,lr... .-_ '-
showed that other Florida cities were taxing the
water and sewer services so that was what the
Commission hit on.
Several have :.. .:';-A that ad valorem

er than the industry and local businesses, only
seven people in this town pay ad valorem tax.

TWO factors within the province
of the Federal Government af-
feet the nation's economy, wheth-
er in a boom period or a period
of recession. These two factors
Include federal taxes and man-
agement of money and the national
In a presidential election year,
politicians ziaturally look drool-
ingly toward a tax cut as a means
of pointing out to the voters,
"look what we did for you." But
from the standpoint of the effect
on the nation's economy, it should
be axiomatic that the first con-
sideration in relation to a cut in
federal taxes is what it will do
to the economy, and not in the light
of a partisan maneuver for the
purpose of building up good will
for more votes.
The tax subcommittee of. the
Joint Committee on the Economic
SReport has been for weeks tak-
ing testimony on this question of
tax cuts by the present Congress.
In a statement accompanying a
sub-committee report, Senator
Paul Douglas, of Illinois, chairman,
says that any budgetary surplus
Available in fiscal 1956-57 should
be used to reduce the federal
debt, providing general prosper-
ity continues. If there is an econ-
rnice down-turn, then there should
be prompt tax .cuts.
Senator Douglas points out that
the taxpayers face a long-range
'outlook for increased state and
*local taxes which are not sensi-
tive to changing economic condi-
tions, as are federal taxes. State.
_and local taxes are largely based
on local sales and real estate
taxes and become depressant at a
time of economic stress. If there
is an economic downturn the Fed-
eral Government collects less in
individual and corporate income
taxes, and thus there is an econ-
omic stimulant, whgreas in boom
times it collects more- in taxes,
and these taxes become an auto-
matic check on inflation. So the
sub-committee report urges a
strengthening individual and cor-
porate income taxes and a grad-
ual withdrawal from reliance on
excise taxes except for liquor,
tobacco and gasoline.
A recent Department of Com-
merce Survey points out that in
plans for expansion, the larger
and more frmly established firms
have, access to the securities
markets for funds, while the small-
er flrms and new business must
rely on banks and other lenders
for loans at high interest rates
which have zoomed during the
past three years. So as a result
of money control bank credit is
expensive and many times un-
available at any price for small
firm expansion. So small business
and farmers are forced to rely
upon, either their own earnings
or government credit.
The Federal Trade Commission
and the-Securities'.and Exchange
Commission recently reported that
profits of firms, with assets over
$100,000,000 increased by 28%
since 1952, whereas profits of
smaller, firms, assets of under
IU',1 ,',1 ., declined by 58% during
the same period. The Small Bus-
iness Administration, set up to aid
small business, in its two years
-of ... .:-. has ., l. made
395 direct loans.
