PITi be sure and pay taxes on property not used exclusively for church purposes. "We pay taxes on leased property and others of that nature," he said. "Churches, rectories, convents, schools and parish halls are not taxable as they are used only for church purposes. "At the present time, however, the amount of money paid annually in taxes is $45,000," he pointed out. The Monsignor said that the diese sometimes turns down a gift of property. "This is especially true in retirement areas," he said. "At those places, you have to pay a monthly tax for the upkeep of tennis courts, swimming pools, recreation halls and golf courses. You also have to improve the property and often have to spend a certain amount for building on it so as to compare with other homes," he said. "These lots are often hard to sell and then we're forced to pay taxes on them." The Monsignor concluded, "Property is the Satellite Continued from Pg. 1 reactivation of the Catholic Communications Society of Arkansas which has been inactive for six years. Ken Watkins of Hot Springs, society president, said a new census of professional communicators has been con- ducted in the diocese to update the mem- bership rolls. Committees are to be formed from among the society's members to review CTNA programs to help diocesan authorities decide which would be most useful locally. William W. O'Donnell, K.S.G., managing editor of The Guardian and associate director of the diocesan communications department, is overseeing establishment of the CTNA downlink and will be in charge of the earth station and local participation in the new national network. Concomitant with plans for inaugurating network service in Arkansas, O'Donnell is consulting with professional producers about local television programming. In June, he spent two weeks at Tulane University, New Orleans, at the Institute of Religious Com- munication preparing himself for this work. O'Donnell presently voices five radio newscasts each week, three as "the N.C.C.J. Reporter" and two as "The Guardian Reporter." The first comes from the National Conference of Christians and Jews and is broadcast every weekend on KSOH, North Little Rock; KNWA-FM, Fayetteville, and KBOT, Cabot. "The Guardian Reporter" newscast, a roundup of news published each week in The Guardian, is aired Saturdays at 8:15 A.M. on KITA, Little Rock, and Sundays at 3 P.M. on KSOH, North Little Rock. Plans are afoot to video-tape both of these newscasts and to offer them weekly to cable television stations across the state. Later, O'Donnell said, local religious forums, in- structional and entertainment programs will be produced for television. Talent will be drawn from the Catholic Communications Society membership.

Sometimes, it's best to sell and get a greater return by investing the money. "I usually get two or three calls a week from realtors wishing to purchase or lease land from us.
