A,, federal grand jurp proceeded Tuesday with its inquiry, while Col- ettef.trArville, who has sung with the Metjppolilan Opera Company, was interviewed by Assistant United States Attofney Joseph Delaney. Mks d'Arville appeared voluntarily, andvjt was made clear she was not a sustttct. The conversation was understood, to have concerned the circumstances she was a dinner guest of the Lauers when Rose Weber, a German- bonfmaid, was said by Chaperau to have, created a scene because of liable talk jn denunciation of Adolf Hitler. Chapareau, who says he is of Jewish extraction, has described himself as victij'ji of the malice which he says arose in the maid because of her discharge by the Lauers.

Jjparlin, University of Arkansas assistant professor of rural economics- and sociology, Tuesday proposed tour steps lo remedy whal he termed Ihe "unfairness and inequalities" of the Arkansas tax assessment syslem. 'Ihe professor said a ,-survcy conducted by the university's general extension service dcmonslraled Ihe assessment system's defects. He proposed thai Ihe state provide foi 1. Selection of the counly assessor on a meril basis in which the voler would give consideration to the fact that appraising property is a technical task and persons thoroughly trained in appraisal methods should the positions. '<-. Revision of the Arkansas assessment law so that conflicts would be eliminated. 3. Addition of maps, card index systems and aerial photographs to the as- EesKir's equipment. 4. Closer supervision of tax equalization. The survey. Dr. Sparlin said, in a bulletin sent lo members of the Ar,*" sas Munic 'Pa' League, coverod '" rural properties scattered through- out the state and 677 properties located principally in Fayelleville, Fort Smith, Little Rock, El Dorado and Jonesboro. Results of the survey showed: Small properties, which usually belong lo people wilh low incomes, were assessed for more than (hey were actually worth. (As high as 107 per cenl in the case of rural holdings. Properties in the nexl higher value group were assessed al 85.4 per cenl of trite value. Properties at the top of the value ladder were assessed (JIO.OOO to $40- COO worth al less lhan one-half Ihei'r true value, and (more than S4000 worth) at less than one-third their true value. City residential properties tended to s assessed at a lower ration than business properties. City residential properties built of irick were assessed al a lower per- eanlage trmn other types of residential houses—with the discrepancy appearing lo be in fjjyor of the better Properties were more uniformly assessed in El Dorado and Fayetleville than in Fort Smith and Little Rock yet the concentralion point in Ihe first two cities was considerably below the legal assessment rt-te of 50 per cenl.

But No Understandings Are Reached Between Britain and U. S. WASHINGTON - </P) _ President Koosevelt and Anthony Eden, the man who would like to see world; democracy adopt a firm attitude toward dictatorship, discussed international problems at a half hour session Tuesday but left the world to guess just what had happened between them. The chief executive and the former secretary of Great Britain met in the presidential study. The meeting was miormal, but this failed to dispel belief here the conversation 'was fraught with significance for Anglo-Americ-an friendship. The consensus in informed quarters was that no commitment were discussed or made, but thut bolh men used Ihe opportunity to review de-i mocratic problems in a world disturbed by power politics of tolalilarian 1 slates. Few unofficial conversations in recent years had attracted as much interest as Tuesday's meeting, partially because of the prominence of the principals and Ihe liming of Eden's visit- soon after the Munich .agreement and President Roosevelt's prolonged review view^of foreign affairs with several of his European ambassadors. Eden, who received a public-ova- tion wherever he appeared, said he enjoyed' the visit but left it to the presk dent lo explain further. Mr. Roosevelt simply said he and Eden talked of many things and agreed they had a very pleasant conversation. .
