TVrry Johnson Finishes XCO Marine Cpl. Terry W.' Johnson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Oswald L. Johnson of Delta, graduated Doc-ember Doc-ember 24 from the 1st Marine Division's Non-Commissioned Officer's Off-icer's School, in the Far East. The four-week course covered combat cperatons. military' tactics, infantry weapDns, map and compass com-pass reading, leadership, radio procedure, pro-cedure, technique of instruction rt.i military courtesy. Upon graduation, students were 'e!urnd to their parent organization organiza-tion throi'thout the division. Terry is sersins his third winter with the V. S Marines. A year ago he was in Alaska, and he has rw-en n Korea since September. He spent 30 days on furlough in Delta in August, to sis.t his parents cnl sisters, Bonnie and Mary- lfndel the Capital jbame Utah's 31st Legislature now has a clear indication of the road along which it must travel and a pretty good idea of how far it can go. Actually, the 1955 legislators, in its third week of an eight-week session, is a lot further ahead of schedule than past legislatures have been. They have Gov. J. Bracken Lee's most liberal budget to date, calling cal-ling for an expenditure of some $69.2 million. They have the departmental de-partmental requests totalling some $75 million. And, they have a pretty clear idea that 'before they wind up their session around March 10 that they will have okehed expenditures expendi-tures of some $72 million. All they have to do is come up with some method of raising finances, fin-ances, and how much they have to raise depends entirely on how they hold the spending line elsewhere else-where and how much they decide is necessary in new state services. Gov. Lee presented a balanced budget with some left over for a surplus. Yet there seems to be ample evidence to support the belief be-lief quik; prevalent among legislators, legis-lators, that the governor has, as is usually the case, asked for a budget of a little less than is actually act-ually available in an effort to curb spending as much as possible. The governor's budget, naturally was figured without the whole cost of the school program. Gov. Lee figures on a margin of some $8 between the $21 million actually needed to operate the schools, at their normal rate of increase based on increased enrollment, en-rollment, and the $13 million he figures will come to the schools from their regular. taxation sources sour-ces of income corporation taxes, mine occupation taxes and individual indivi-dual income revenues. Since he does not figure there will be enough left over to spill out more than $2 to $3 million from sales tax surplus, he figures the biggest part of this $8 million Bank Completes 50 Years Of Continuous Banking The Commercial Bank of Utah held its 50th Annual Stockholders Meeting, Tuesday, January 18, 1955 at the Head Office, Spanish Fork, Utah. The ladies of the Spanish Fork Office served a delicious buffet luncheon to all of the stockholders present at the meeting. Senior Vice President Joseph Hanson told of his being present at the meeting in the Young Men's Co-op store building, when the bank was organized 50 years ago. Mr. Hanson is the only one of the incorporators still living. He has been actively associated with President Pres-ident P. P. Thomas in the management manage-ment of the bank since 1911. Stockholders renamed the following follow-ing directors: P. P. Thomas. Roy W. Hanson, Joseph Hanson, C. M. Pace, Max Thomas, John E Aagard Charle H. Dixon, M. L. Oldroyd, A. U. Miner, Don Clyde, George C. Chase, A. E. Money, R. Earl Dill-Man, Dill-Man, and Clive Sprouse. Officers re-elected by the Board were: P. P. Thomas, President and Chairman of the Board; Joseph Hanson, Vice President; George C. Chase. Vice President; Max Thomas, Tho-mas, Executive Vice President; Charles H. Dixon, Vice President and Cashier;Roy W. Hanson. Comp troller and Auditor; Mark D. Bow-en, Bow-en, Assistant Cashier; and Paul H. Lambert, Secretary. Executive Vice President Max Thomas told stockholders that the total resources of The Commerical Bank of Utah had increased nearly near-ly $900,000.00 during 1954. Resources Resour-ces on December 31, 1954 were over 19 million.

The legislators have a little different diff-erent viewpoint, apparently. They are going to raise property tax as little as possible, if at all, if they can find the money elsewhereAnd they think they can. In the process, they might have to raise a few other taxes. One such possible increase is a hike in corporate franchise taxes. Another An-other is a bill for individual income in-come tax plugging some of the loopholes now existing. Still another an-other is inclusion of such items as uranium, oil and natural gas under the mine occupation act. From these sources they expect to pick up about $2,,i million. They also suspect there will fte a little more in the sales tax reserve than the governor figures, still leaving quite a hunk there to use for needed state buildings. The lawmakers figure the sum they have to work to raise is nearer $4 million than the $8 million mil-lion the governor has in mind. They also seem to feel that if they put their program into operation, opera-tion, with the only actual increase in taxes coming on corporation income, in-come, that they can over-ride a gubernatorial veto. Of course, there are some other tax hikes talked of. One would raise the tax on taxpayers in the higher income brackets. In effect, this would raise the maximum tax rate from 5 on $5,000 taxable income up, one per cent at a time, up to a new high of 10 of $10,000 taxable income. This is one the governor certainly cer-tainly will veto and it probably will not get past either House of the Legislature, since few Republicans Repub-licans seem to favor that measure. One thing is sure. The legislators legisla-tors are well aware they need money and If the need is great enough, they might contemplate seriously some other tax hikes not now looked on with much favor. Only time, and the actions of the appropriations committee, will tell.
