ty-six additional taxpayer* in the
Comanche Independent School District fil-
ed «n application Wednesday afternoon in
52nd District Court to become intervenor*
in a auit objecting to the school district's
tax plan for 1970. The 66 prsons issued a
challenge also to the legality of what the
School District’s Board of Trustees Presi-
dent David Beene described to The Chief
last week as an "approved" tax roll.
The newly named group who seek in-
ternor status Join 21 others who filed a
plea fer an injunction prohibiting the Co-
manche School District from levying and
collecting the 1970 taxes under a plan call-
ed "unequal". The first Court bout drew
a temporary injunction against- the school
dietrict, prohibiting the levying and collect-
ing of taxes as recommended by a three-
member Board of Equalization.' That action
was handed down July 27 in 52nd District
Court by Visiting Judge Earl Conners, Jr.
of Eastland, who heard the injunction idea
while 52nd Judge Truman E. Roberts was
After a hearing in Hamilton on Satur-
day, August 29, Judge Roberts declared in
Court here on,Monday, Aug. 31, that the
action was "not a class suit and narrowed
the injunction down to the 21 plaintiffs who
had brought the original suit. However, the
jurist left the door open for other* who
contest the proposed increased tax plan to
join the suit as intervenor*. i ■.

on Monday, October 5 in Comanche to set-
TRfife petition filed Wednesday contends
that if the school assessor’s tax. rolls have
been approved by the Board of Equalization
ofthe liomanche Independent School Dist-
rict "they were approved or certified at a
session or meeting of said Board of Equali-
zation which was not open to the public
and which was held'vnthout first giving
written notice of the date/place' and sub-
ject of such a meeting, all as is prohibited
by Article 62255-17, V.C.S. as amended and

is illegal and voidable and
operations for 1970-71 on the $12,900,000
evaluation of property in the school district.
The $12,900,000 evaluation represents the
increased figure set by the Board of Equali-
zation. That was the action that brought
about the protest from taxpayers, leading
to an entanglement in Court for the local
school systein. The tax figure was a raise
from $9,500,000 evaluation paid on in 1969.
The rate per $100 valuation is $1.80,
