Politics ; Enter NoB-Political Tax Meeting What.started as * protest meet- Ing "against taxes turned Into a political, quarrel last_night at the · Shrine" club in; spite"-of'"the fact that it was billed beforehand as. a "nonpollticar meeting by^the sponsor--Mrs. Marguerite, -Halm--who made several feeble efforts to keep it on that plane but failed completely. Considerable publicity was given by the press and radio to the protest meeting and a -crowd -of approximately 100 Tucsonians reported at the location between.8 and 8-30 p. m. to hear about .taxes,to discuss their, tax .problems' and make an attempt to set-up an.or : ganization which would investigate taxing, procedures and check ' on rates and valuations. Practically "none "of this happened' because .the, meeting'got bogged down in argument · shortly after, it was.finally,started and although-several-attempts were made to revive it for the original Intent it was officially closed at 10:30 p m after about half of the audi ence had, left in disgust. Outlines Purpose In 1 her opening statement, Mrs. Hahn outlined her purpose in call- Ing the .meeting.-and expressed gratification for the fine attendance. . Taxes in Tucson are almost prohibitive, she said, and there Is almost a constant cry from every quarter, demanding that something be done to · alleviate the existing situation. Ben Solot, local realtor, was the opening speaker at the meeting and recalled that he, had appeared before the Plma county board of Like a boxer before a fight, candidates are getting "on edge" as Nov. 7 draws near. To the-iininitiated,' it would appear from the comments^of candidates that both^parties are split-wide opfen. and nothing but *a nice,.fat campaign kitty would-draw each-together. For example, the other day 'three ofi the county Democratic candidates and some of their supporters held separate pow-wows and 'decided to strike out on .their own. HITTCfG BUSHES These .candidates; supervisors when they -were sitting as a board of equalization to protest the assessments on his business properties. After pointing out the "unfair, unjust and discriminatory valuations" he said that most of his properties were adjusted.

Leo Finch, candidate-for' re-election as county assessor; Lambert Kautenburger, seeking re-election as supervisor, and Frank Eyman, candidate for sheriff, all rounded up some of the workers who helped them m the primary campaign and asked-them- for support. While they expect to win, they believe in the old political adage that any opposition is serious opposition. OUTGO One Democratic candidate wlio is listed far down on the list of hopefuls, was- growling about his contribution to the party. "What has it:done for,me?" he asked. '."I haven't seen anyone coming around to do any work." GREEN GRASS But if "the Democrats think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, .they'd better take off their green glasses. The Republican candidates are voicing gutteral protests . about the same thing. They complain that all support is- going solely 'to Howard- Pyle, the candidate for governor--he is stealing the act. Other candidates, like William Dunlap, for county assessor, are having to row their own boat against, the stream, with only nominal active support from the party.
