Ten THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, Sunday Morning, September 7,1952. Tax Value of Property To New High TOPEKA W — Taxable value of Kansas property climbed to a new high of $4,648,592,330 in 1952, the Kansas Commisssion of Revenue: and Taxation reported in an annual summary. This represents a jump of $139,529,569 in the last year and is nearly two billion dollars higher! than it was 10 years ago. Pacing the upward trend is the assessed value of tangible personal property such as household goods and automobiles. This class of property, the state's largest, increased §51,730.268 in the last year and now stands at 51,329,757,615. The second largest classification of property, farm land, showed a drop of nearly three million dollars in taxable value and is now 51,094.296,784. It was the only class of property to show a drop. Assessed valuation of city lots and improvements is up nearly 32 million dollars to a total of 5727,747,347. Property of public service corporations—railroads and utilities —increased nearly 26 million dollars in taxable value to reach 5664,421,409. An increase of more than 31 million dollars brought the assessed valuation of intangible personal property—moneys and credits—to 5587,917,636. Sedwick County easily heads the list of the state's 105 counties in assessed property values at 5458,400,491. The next five counties and their assessed valuations: Shawnee 5172,860,2222; Wyandotte 5159,814,496; Reno 5137,124,671; Barton 5131,759,988 and Johnson 5101,538,942.

Sparkman of Alabama, Term Seizure By Fatzer Entrapment WICHITA, Kas., Sept. 6 Iff)— Vincent F. Hiebsch, former city attorney, today charged the seizure of 113 pinball machines in raids here July 2 was the result of "entrapment" by Attorney General Harold Fatzer and other officers. Hiebsch, as attorney for one of the machine owners, filed an answer in district court to the state's confiscation suit which is set for hearing, before Judge GeorgeAus- tin Brown Monday. The machines are now stored in a warehouse. The attorney assserted Fatzer and other law enforcement officers "conspired, to induce the operator of the pinball machine to pay off on free games for the sole purpose of instituting this action for destruction of the marble tables." The marble tables were designed and manufactured, Hiebsch said, "so that one or more replays or free games might be obtained by <?ITTIN' AND LION—At Thousand Oaks, Calif., 19-year-old Bar- barV LoganThows Uiat when she tames a lion, he stays: tamed, Shapely Barbara, a television singer, learned to tame the. big cats when she was only 14 in her California home. Sparkman Is In Favor of TideiandStand Stevenson Continued From Page One Eisenhower accused the Democrats generally of hatching this year "far more sinister" schemes :o "influence your vote with government money" in effect a charge of attempted vote buying. "They are telling you," the general said, " 'the Republicans will pull the rug out from under you." He pronounced that: "Bunk! just bunk!" and he got another spatter of applause. Crowds Continued From Page One Shivers Gives Up Ike as Democrat AUSTIN, Tex., Sept. 6 IB—Gov. Allan Shivers gave up as hopeless today his search for a "legal and honorable" way to let Texans vote for Dwight Eisenhower as a Democrat. Shivers said he's still bitterly opposed to Adlai Stevenson because the Democratic presidential nominee favors' federal ownership of tidelands. But- he urged a clear-cut, Republican - Democratic contest in the general election on Nov. 4. He called for the state Democratic convention in Amarillo next Tuesday to certify Stevenson as the They were so closely packed they didn't have room to applaud- and then an announcement had been made from the platform to hold applause to a minimum so that the speakers would not exceed their radio time. Some said they remained quiet for fear they couldn't hear the speakers. And several farmers and their wives gave a similar reply: "I guess farm folks aren't very demonstrative, anyway. But that didn't mean we weren't interested in everything they said." Eisenhower at times appeared to be a bit flustered by the absence of the cheers to which he become accustomed. Some- es he didn't wait for the applause that seemed to be developing. • But if Eisenhower was disturbed by audience reaction — he would have felt better had he been on the sidelines listening to Stevenson. The Democratic nominee, rather than plunging into his speech on a serious note as Eisenhower had done — loosened his audience up with a fast quip or two. It seeemed at one point he might arouse his audience when he got applause after ripping into the Republicans as being inconsistent in their farm stand. But then he went through the experience that Eisenhower had gone through—a long and strained stretch of talking with the crowd standing silent. Pick Two For Title Of Miss (Congeniality ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Sept 6. I3l— Miss America contestants today got into a huddle and picked Miss Oklahoma and Miss District /of Columbia for the title of "Miss Congeniality." The two girls—Iris Ann Fitch of Washington, D. C., and Shu-ley Maurine Barbour of Tulsa—tied for the honor and split -the $1,000 scholarship set aside for the popularity winner. They were voted the most popular and congenial at a meeting that gave contestants something to do while waiting for announcement of the ten finalists tonight. the player thereof, depending on! orf y Democratic presidential nom- skill and ability in operating the meee on ^ s Texas baUot machine." The attorney also alleged that Judge Brown has no jurisdiction in the case because Judge Howard C. Kline was the "preliminary" judge at time of the raids and Judge Kline should have issued the warrant and assigned the case. Wichita was the sixth city raided, Fatzer said, wiht similar action earlier in Topeka, Hutchinson. Fort Scott, Dodge City and Kansas City, Kas. The governor said he had given up the idea of having both Stevenson and Eisenhower listed as Democrats in separate columns of the ballot, in addition to the Republican column headed by Eisenhower. He reminded voters that they can split the ticket, scratch both candidates, or stay home on election day. enson warned his rural audience he will not seek for farmers any- Paritv •/ Continued From Page One | net justify.
