LOCALISMS (Continued from Page l, a federal judge in Washington has ordered IEW to begin de- segregation proceedings against all public school systems in ten states and :against some sch, ool systems in six other s,tates. U. S. Dis,trict Judge John Pratt ruled that HEW mut take steps to bring ,the 16 states into com- pliance with the 1964 Civil Rights Act. By a strange coinci- dence, ,all 16 states named in the cder are southern or border states, a,nd not nary a one is located up Nawth. Appa..rently, the learned judge sill feels, 20 yeans after the !sup;eme court desegregion decision and 10 years after pc,s- sage of .the civil rights act, that desegregation is illegal only in the South while being the "law of the land" outside ,that area. This old country editor just isn't smart ,enough to figure out why equal rights doesn't apply equally in all 50 of these United States. $ $ $ Figures on income tax returns this newspaper a few days ago.

Persons with incomes below $25,000 constituted 97.2 percen of all individual taxpayers, They filed 72.2..miUion .returns, rep- resenting $542 ,billion of ad- justed gross income or 85.5 per- cent ,of ,the nation's `total g,ross income. It is these ,taxpayers who pay `the vast bulk of the cost, of gvernment. There were 624 return's .reporting $1 million or over of adjusted gross income or- 1/1:200 of one percent of the eturns filed. This 1/120{) of one percent represent,s ,the mythical rich hat, pol, i,tieians talk so much. about taxing .to pay for .all the goverrmen:tal frills ,which, in the end, .are loaded ,onto the backs of average tax- palters  either in direct taxes or higheir prices for goods and services. $ $ As Dea Alan, K. Campbell of Syracuse University has noted, "If higher ,public costs were matched by increases in th e quality of public services, ,the so-called ,taxpayers' revolt might be less clamorous. If quality increases have occurred, their '"have ': been alm,o,s,t :' imper- ceptible. Many 'residen,i'in fact, would likely :argue that quality has visibly declined."
