A Tale of Two Rais I - ' " - ',.1 - 4 7 - - ! m. V-W- ft 1 f IN THE SCENE ABOVE, Rover Boy, a peripatetic white rat, contentedly busses his mate, Pinky, in the culmination of a little epic that might well be entitled "Love Will Find A Way," or even "They Lived Happily Ever After." This rat's, tale, pardon the pun, all began two weeks ago when buddies, 11-year-old Richard Dunham (right above) and Dale Smith, 12, bought a pair of white rats from a Reno pet store. Richard took his rat, the female called Pinky, to his home at 725 Balzar Circle and placed her in the backyard n an abandoned squirrel cage. Dale's rat, the male called Rover Boy, was also placed in the backyard of Dale's house at 721 Balzar Circle, but since there was no cage available, Rover Boy was placed in a cardboard box. All went well until Wednesday morning when Richard started to feed Pinky and found a strange rat sitting atop the cage, underneath the old blanket used as a covering. A quick check with Dale revealed that Rover Boy was missing and the conclusion was apparent neither distance, cats and dogs, fences, cardboard boxes, nor any obstacle had stopped Rover Boy. Love had found a way. So, what could the Dunhams do but open the cage door and let Rover Boy join his mate? And there's a sequel, too a happy one. The very next morning, Thursday, Richard and Dale discovered 13 baby rats in the cage! How Rover Boy had known the time had come is a mystery. But know he did, and like many another expectant father, he was present to pace the floor in the climax of this romantic rat race.

State Intervenes In Dam Tax Suit The Nevada Tax Commission has authorized Attorney General Harvey Dickerson to intervene in a suit filed by Clark county in connection with power generation at Hoover Dam. Clark county seeks to collect $138,600 in the action, which is filed against the City of Los Angeles, and its department of water and power. It is similar to an earlier action In which Frank McNamee, Clark district judge, ruled that the county had no case because the power generating facilities are an instrument of the federal government. Dickerson was authorized to intervene to protect the state's interest. The state annually collects $300,000 as its share of power revenue from the dam. Any judgment in favor of Clark county would be deducted from iiiat smount, which goes to the state general fund.

EVENING RENO, Defense Is Good Legal Career Begins, Ends Quickly Here The legal career of William V. Schwinter, 36, a cook, began and ended within 30 minutes in Reno Municipal court Friday. The Holiday, Utah man had been in jail here since July 18 when he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 10 days for reckless driving. On Friday, he appeared in court on two other counts, stemming from the same incident, drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident. The pen alties, if convicted, loomed quite a bit stiffer than the original charge. He chose out of necessity since he was broke to defend himself. Sam Francovich, city attorney, represented the prosecution. Schwinter, a transient, looked over notes he had carefully taken upon his arrest. He was respectful, and seemed fairly "up" on court procedure. He cross-examined arresting officers and presented bits of extenuation in his closing remarks. Attorney Francovich asked that the second charge leaving the scene of an accident, be dropped, but pressed for the drunk driving conviction. Judge Anderson found Schwinter innocent on both counts, the latter because Schwinter had not received a blood alcohol test following arrest. Self-styled lawyer Schwinter went back to serve two remaining days on the original reckless driving sentence. On Sunday, he will again be a free man.

Motorists traveling along U. S. Highway 40 were being stopped at roadblocks thrown up at Wells today by the highway patrol stationed in that area. When stopped, the patrolmen handed the motorist a printed card which said the following:: "You afre entering a high-frequency accident and fatality area. You have traveled a high-speed highway within the state of Nevada and are probably destined for someplace beyond our borders. We know from experience that a driver from the East or West has, at this point, become fatigued to a degree that proper control of the vehicle is difficult. We value your life and suggest you rest at the next stop. "DO THIS IN THE INTEREST OF SAFETY TO YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE ON THE ROAD." The card is signed "Nevada Highway Patrol.' NEVADA, SATURDAY, JULY Meet 35 Volunteers Man Fire Lines on Davidson Pea Mop-up Action As Range Blaze Under Control Volunteer fire fighters, including men from Fallon's auxiliary air station, have retired from the Davidson peak fire above Reno, but 60 men remain on the reduced fire line in a "mopping up" action. The raging fire, located east of Washoe Lake, was brought under complete control at midnight Friday. The bureau of land management's spokesman in Carson said this morning that all other lightning-produced fires in the Washoe area were under control.

Forecast through Sunday is for more scat tered thunderstorms and continued temperatures of around 90 degrees. Fire hazards in both range lands and forests increases with the continued hot spell, the bureau said. Les Clark, administrative assistant of the bureau, said in Carson this morning, officials were deeply grateful to volunteers who worked lor.g hours in bringing fires under control. He said navy men from the Fallon air station had reported back for duty after joining in the fight. Sixty -five additional fighters secured from the Reno employment office did a highly commendable job. he said.

A resolution authorizing the commission secretary, Robbins E. Cahill, to set forth the equalization program goal was adopted unanimously by the commission. The 35 percent figure is the one the commission uses in assessing utility companies, livestock, motor vehicles, livestock and other items over which the commission has assessing jurisdiction. ACTION PROMISED The commission authorizing Cahill to inform the assessors that if the property is not brought up to 35 per cent of full value, the commission will take one of two actions: The commission will bring assessments in the individual counties to the 35 per cent level. Or it will reduce its valuations on utilities, railroads, vehicles and livestock to the average of the 17 counties. That average is now 26.06 per cent of full value of real and personal property. The commisison fixed no deadline for the establishment of the valuation level. It will mean tax increases for nearly every County in the state. The county with the highest assessment ratio on real and personal property currently is Esmeralda, 35.08 per cent. Establishment of a statewide average and the county assessment ratio last month cost five Nevada counties a share of state, school funds, since their assessing ratio vas below state average. FIVE PENALIZED The five penalized counties were Lyon, Washoe, Ormsby, Churchill and Douglas. School administrators have asked that the school law be changed so that payments are based on the assessment ratio of the previous year. Current ratios, they noted, were announced after school budgets are completed. Some districts consequently face the necessity of obtaining emerg ency loans to meet budgets, the commisisoners were told. Washoe county was penalized $51,000 under the assessment ratio-school aid payment tiein that became effective July 1. Charge Droppe In Garlic Theff Grand larceny charges filed against a Reno couple wounded by shotgun blasts in a garlic patch early Friday morning, were dismissed late the same day. Louis Boano, 46, of 1100 Sutro St., declined to press charges against Kenneth Guerrero, 29, and his wife Joanne Bess, 22. The two were arrested at 12:30 a.m. Friday, after Boano caught them in his garlic patch and shot Kenneth in the chest with a load of number six buckshot. A second shot winged Mrs. Guerrero in the leg. Hospital officials termed their condition as "painful, but satisfactory." Boano said he would not press charges if the couple "tell me they're sorry." And the district attorney's office also did not charge the couple. Boano will get his five sacks of garlic back, too. Police indicated a reluctance to hold the "evidence" because the police station air conditioner is not functioning.
