City Council Votes To Increase Property
Valuations One Third For 1948
CORINNE NEAL COOK
BACK HOME AGAIN!
Back home again! And it’s won-
derful. I can truthfully say now,
that “there’s no place like home.”
My happiness at being home again
with my family and friends knows
no bounds. Tears of happiness
trickle down my cheeks, now and
then, as I think how fortunate I, and
others in America, are, to have the
privileges we have.
For the welcome given me at the
airport, at the Mesquiter office and
at home; the friendly greetings, the
telegrams, the letters, the flowers,
the telephone calls—and, especially
for the many prayers, that were said
for my safe return from thousands
of miles of flying over land and sea,
across mountains and deserts, I am
deeply grateful. You, my family and
friends will never know what your
love and friendship mean to me.
If the privileges that I have had,
do nothing more, than give me a
greater appreciation of my fellow-
man, I feel that the experiences,
many of which I would not want to
repeat, have been worth all the wor-
ry and anxiety they caused. My hope
is that my experiences as related in
this column may be of some bene-
fit to others, as they will have a
better understanding of our associ-
Manila Bay is beautiful. We
thought of the days when Admiral
Dewey steamed into Manila Bay dur-
ing the Spanish American war. The
American influence is prevalent
throughout Manila. The numerous
educational facilities surprised us.
The city has universities, technical
schools and colleges. I can’t imagine
any city having more schools in pro-
portion to size and population. Eng-
lish is spoken. American dress is
worn. American ideas seem predomi-
nant. Most of the institutions of
learning were damaged during the
war, but the Filipinos have met the
situation, and the education of the
youth is going on without interrup-
tion. The city has made rapid recov-
ery since the war. Reconstruction
and repairs have eliminated the signs
of destruction, and the memories of
war, in many instances. Business
seems more or less normal, and the
people seem rather happy.
RUMORS OF WAR
In Manila we heard stories of the
riots and war in China—our next
stop. The thought of not continuing
to China was out of question, unless
government regulations prevented.
Our ticket home read Hongkong,
Shanghai, Tokyo and Hawaii. Pan
American representatives thought we
would have no trouble. As we left
Manila; on' Friday, Nov 12, reports
on China, particularly Shanghai, be-
came conflicting. One person would
say one thing, another person some-
thing else. But, always we found Pan
American advise reliable and sound.
(The PAA men in all the countries
we’ve visited, have had a keen in-
sight into the actual conditions un-
der which the people are living, and
the government operating.)
Mr. and Mrs. Oppenheimer said
they would" see us in Hongkong Sat-
urday. They left Manila Thursday to
fly to Siam and then to Hongkong;
We met them there Saturday after-
noon at the" airpbft as we took off
for Shanghai—and warring China.

ONE OF WORLD’S BEAUTY SPOTS
Nov. 13-—Our arrival in Hong-
kong, China, a British possession,
about 10. o'clock .Friday morning,
gave us two days to enjoy the beau-
ties of this free port. The plane
landed at the Kowloon airport, one
of the most beautiful, if not the most
beautiful airport in the world. Situ-
ated on Repulse Bay, between the
mountains, the plane dropped quick-
ly to the ground to land safely on
what is said to be one of the most
dangerous runways in the world. Rio
de Janiero is no prettier than the
Hongkong, China setting. All pas-
sengers are thrilled with the sea, the
mountains and the tiny landing field.
Transportation was furnished to the
Penisula Hotel, where our bags were
deposited at China National Airways
Command. Two coolies loaded our
Si5,000 Budget Is

The Mesquite City Council Tues-
day night voted to increase property
valuations by 33 1-3 per cent on the
194 8 tax roll and to adopt a SI5,000
budget for the new year. The tax
valuation increase will apply to a

ed to the council by Alderman L. M.
The valuation board, composed of
Jack Nesbit, Lyndell Davis and Fel-
ton Dean, submitted the new tax

Upon motion of Alderman B. L.

three-man board in its recent studies.

kept up to date from information
supplied in applications for building
The cbuncil instructed City Secre-
tary Bette Mikel to mail out notices
to taxpayers showing the new valua-
tions and announcing the date of
an equalization board meeting.

1. Heard a request from citizens
owning property in Block IS that a
20-foot alley be opened through the

a letter indication his intention to
move the buildings.

ing a contract with Ben Sira and
Company of Dallas for construction

berg to prepare whatever papers are
necessary for the removal of cows
from the municipal area.
6. Failed to take official action
on a suggestion that O. C. McDear-
man be re-employed as superintend-
ent of public works. Mayor Ruther-
ford spoke in favor of his re-employ-
ment and Alderman J. W. Wiseman
stated that the city must have a
qualified man in charge. Alderman
L. B. McLaran suggested that the
city advertise for an experienced wa-
ter works superintendent.
