Amendment l!o. 2 Opposed by Utah Board of Education The Utah State Board of Education Educa-tion voted unanimously to oppose the Constitutional Amendment No. 2 which will appear on the Nov. 8 ballot. A recent opinion by Attorney General Walter L. Budge pointed out that the amendment would threaten the tax base of Utah's schools as well as that of local and state governments. The Board was in sympathy with the original purpose of the amendment amend-ment which provided assistance for widows and orphans of the war dead, but said tfiis could not be done under the present amendment without opening the gates to wholesale tax exemptions. W. C. Cole Delta, Chairman of the Board, said: "Eecause of the need for increased quality in our educational program as well as increases in-creases in enrollment, it would be undesirable to jeopardize the financial fi-nancial structure of our educational education-al system until further consideration considera-tion can be given."
