Cards notifying dairymen and
other property owners whose ren-
ditions are being changed are
being mailed this week. Those
who wish to . discuss the new as-
sessments are !>eing given a date
to appear before the county tax
equilization board next week.
County Judge Newt Owens ex-
plained the $750 will he added to
the valuation at which the land
is carried on the tax rolls instead
of the barns being assessed as
personal property. This method
usually proves more advantageous
to the taxpayer, he added.
To Seek Cattle Li.ling.
Farm improvements generally
have not been carried on the tax
rolls under past county policy,
ulthough land valuations have
been increased in the case of
highly developed acreage.
The bulk of the farm land in
the county is carried on the tax
roll at $8 an acre. Some highly
improved farms arc assessed at
$10 an acre, some at $12 and a
few at $30.
Judge Owens said the equiliza-
tion hoard also will seek to obtain
a more accurate listing of cat-
tle of all types on the tax roll
than now exists.
A substantial amount of new
city property also will be added
to the tax rolls this year, Judgte
Owens aaid. Included are both
new homes and buildings and
also various small businesa estab-
lishments which have not been
rendered for taxation before.

(F — Thousands of spectators be-

toward intercontinental, and per-

terday at the Cape Carnavcral
test center. The monster missile

The Air Force and the Defense
Department wouldn't say it was
the Atlas. They wouldn’t call it
anything hut u missile. And they
declined to say directly how it
measured up to expectations.
However, it seemed certain that
the cigar-shaped skyrocket was ac-
tually the Atlas. It was identified
as the Atlas by informants whose
past statements about operations
at the launching site have proved
100 per cent accurate.
As an intercontinental ballistic
