Kiwanians Hear Talks on Taxes
Properly rc-uppruisal under the
stale - county program Ix'Kuii in
1951 is resulting in the discovery
of some values that had escaped
assessment and in their revealing
of sharp inequities in valuations
previously assigned for tax pur
liases. Maps are sornetiines otisi
lete, sometimes lion cxisU'nt.
Ihfiv are frequently inadequate
oudgcts for an effective continu
ing plan of assessment.
Berkeley S. DeVaul, ivpiesent
ing the slate tax commission in
its relation with counties of Ore
gon, gave the Bond Kiwanis cluh
this information Monday noon in
an address before the service or
ganization at the Pine Tavern.
Neither DeVaul nor Leslie M.
ftoss, Deschutes county assessor,
was able (o answer the question
of when re-appraisal will be fin
ished in Deschutes county.
His office had attempted to do
the job without .adequate financ
ing, Ross told the Kiwanians, but
has got behind In new assessments
as the result of devoting time to
reassessing. State" participation is
on a 00-50 expenditure basis, Do
Vaul said.
"The office of your .county as
sessor is the only office? thut can
save you money by spending more
money," Hoss declared in his in
troductory remarks. "School dis
tricts, cities, the county, water
districts, hospital districts, fire
districts are wholly dependent on
it for their finances. The assessor's
office is charged with the responsi
bility of seeing that you are as
sessed with your fair share of the
tax load and also that you do not
pay more than your just share.
"Contrary to the opinion of
many, the office of the assessor
does not set the amount of taxes
that you shall pay; you do."
Ross pointed out that the law
requires that every county shall
have plat books showing correct
ItM-ations of all parcels of prop
erty and added that Dtschutes
county has been operating outside
the law in this respect since l!Ci7,
when the courthouse burned." The
county, with the aid of ihe state,
is now in process of map and plat
reconstruction, lie Raid.

TRANSPARENT ADVANTAGES An eyeful in or out of the
hammock is Joan Brown, who is testing a new plastic at Cypress
Gardens, B'la. The transparent hammock is only 101000 of an

Bland, who looks good just standing there. Best thing about the
hammock is that Joan can see everybody on the beach and
everybody can see her.
