The Hensleys saw the coon in a tree in their yard last Wednesday and much to their surprise, found it quite tame. They fed it hamburger on a rake and when it seemed to enjoy that, Mrs. Hensley donned heavy gloves and reached up to feed it by hand. They decided to bring it down and did so by looping a rope around its neck. At first they housed it in an old rural mailbox Mr. Hensley had in the garage and the next day, they got the cage above.

Summer Carnival dated June 12 Two suits on the constitutionality of a law on the agricultural lattd tax cr'edit of the 1965 legislature were filed last week in district court here: The cases w£fe filed after appeals to the county* board of supervisors, and the cases are brought against the board. The 1965 legislature passed a law which provided no non-resident of Iowa is entitled to receive the agricultural land tax credit. The credit is allowed on property tax for school purposes above 15 mills. The legislature each year appropriates a sum from the state treasury to the counties to absorb a portion of the school tax above 15 mills. Originally this appropriation was to pay all of the property tax above 15 mills, but the money appropriated has had to be pro-rated. The 1965 legislature sought to limit such payments to residents of Iowa only, and land owned by non-residents was not to be entitled to the tax relief. This has caused considerable confusion, particularly in estates, when one heir of several may live outside the state, the others in Iowa, but the one living outside precludes the tax credit being granted. The two suits are brought by two land companies, one the Beverly Land Co., of Rhode Island, on the south half of 27-9929, and the other by the Warwick Land Co. of Rhode Island, on the east half of 26-99-29. The petitions state the legislative act is unconstitutional under bo>th the Iowa and the , United States constitutions. The two Rhode Island compa- can be made for farm work Kenneth C.
