Besides dealing with taxation and tax reform, the author in this book, traces the evolution of the best cen trallzed adminstrative system of the State. A model type of administrative organization is presented, which, if adopted would increase the efficiency of the Kentucky tax system in its ad ministrative phases and would be in tho interest of governmental economy. In addition to the general treatment of the tax system of the State and the subject of tax reform, special topical discussions are presented dealing with the more important problems of taxa tion and public finance with which the State will have to deal. These include discussions of the defective general property tax, the inheritance tax, the state income tax, and the relationship between State and Federal taxation. In addition to the special treatment of many topics, the book contains 33 tables, 2 charts, and 5 diagrams clarifying the discussions. It ls tho purpose of the book to present the more important 'tax problems of the State of Kentucky and to suggest tho remedies therefor. This book which ls quite thorough and comprehensive in its study should bo of great Interest and value not only to all authorities on taxation, but to all who are interested in the subject. The book is to be sent out through the Extension Department of the University of Kentucky, from which copies may bo obtained for a nominal sum.

The cast includes eight men and eight women, and has a male lead, that of Bill Crlchton, the admirable butler whose ideas of social equality seem delightfully contrary to an American audience. Lady Mary, his eighteen year old mistress, pretty, spoiled arid lazy, is the leading role for ambitious Strollers to work for. Several copies of the play have been placed on the reserved shelf of the Library. Tryouts will begin after the holidays. Herndon Evans, stage manager, announced that the play may be' take on the road. Kentucky alumni in Pine-vill- e have guaranteed a house if it is taken there.
