Dr. Paul E. Basye of the University of California told a conference on title deeds that computerized "land data banks" will soon have to replace the current system of recording property ownership, tax assessments and use restrictions. He said the present system was "installed in the 17th century to cope with conditions of that century." ROLEX is the credential of the connoisseur .

Santa Fe Phone TA 5-0531 Another Postal Rate increase Is Considered WASHINGTON (AP) — The Post Office Department is considering seriously whether to ask Congress to increase pcstal rates. A Post Office spokesman said over the weekend the increase is needed because of a "very, very tight" fiscal situation. He explained the department now has about $1.2 billion in deficits. "One way cr another, the users of the mail are going to have to pay for the service they get," he said, ''whether it is irom the general treasury (taxes) or in postage." The .spokesman said a decision is expected soon. If the increase is sought, he added, it probably would affect all classes of mail except parcel post, whose rates were increased earlier this year. 5000 Lights on This Yule Tree WILMINGTON, N.C.

Crawford TA 5-0391 Giant Fighter By Luqrece Beale Synopsis' The Harp Which (ells Billy he can slay Goko the giant if he brings her the Rosanna Ruby to set in a magic necklace. CHAPTER SEVEN THREE ISLANDS The Harp Witch told Santa there was an island where diamonds and amethysts and pearls and opals grew on trees. "Among the trees," said the witch, "there is a grove of rubies where the Rosanna Ruby is to be found. It is the fairest stone of all. If you can pluck it you need have no fear of Goko. I shall put the stone in a magic necklace that will tighten around his throat and he will be helpless." Santa and Billy rushed off with Theodore the turtle in search of the jewel. The sea was rough. The turtle's upside down shell rocked and bobbed in the waves. Water splashed over the sides. The wind beat the sail and the boom swung back and forth knocking them all to the bottom of the wobbly little boat. At last Theodore called out, "There is an island straight ahead!" Seasick Thank goodness, thought Billy. He was feeling seasick. He had already had enough sea voyage to last him all his life. But when they can ashore they found this was not the Jewel Island after all. A round cheeked brownie was sitting on the beach beating on a child's drum. He told them thi was the Island of Lost Toys. "Have you lest a toy?" he asked Billy. "Oh, yes," said Billy. "I've lost lots of toys! A whistle and a baseball bat and a little tin soldier and —" "They are all here," said the brownie. He pointed to a mountain of balls and boy trucks and dolls and pocket knives and kites and tops and even pogo sticks. They were all lost toys he explained. "Every toy that is lost is brought to this island by the Play Brownies." "What happens to them then?' asked Santa. "Once a year the brownies take the toys back to the world and hide them in strange places for children to come upon unexpectedly." "I once found my missing rol- Here's a great Gift that comes in any amount ( -f ; -i * \ *• The kangaroo sailor pointed to the Isle of Jewels. er skate behind the kitchen tove!" exclaimed Billy. "I expect the brownies put it there," smiled the brownie. "Now why don't you look for your other missing toys here?" Billy was already shuffling hrough a pile of tin soldiers but Santa said they must hurry on their way. They piled back in their rock- ety boat and rocked off. Twice more they came ashore and twice more they found they had not yet come to the Isle of Jewels. The first place was called Candy Island. Long ago a candy machine on the island lost a screw. Caramels and marshmal- ovvs and chocolate creams had been pouring cut of the machine ever since and no one had been able to turn it off. "Can't we stay here a while?" aslced Billy eagerly. Santa said no they must go on for they had lost so much time already and they must hurry and find the Rosanna Ruby. The next land they came to was Kangaroo Land where kangaroos lived like you and I, They lived in houses and went to school and worked in offices. There were kangaroo policemen and kangaroo children who went to kangaroo birthday parties. They found a kangaroo sailor standing on the shore. Santa asked him if he could tell them how to reach the Isle of Jewels. "Certainly," said the kangaroo sailer. He pointed over Santa's shoulder. "Just hep over there!" Santa turned and saw land that had not been there a moment before. It was an island glittering with the sparkle of precious stones. Tomorrow: The Rosanna Ruby VJ KC Family Escapes Fire KANSAS CITY (AP) — The crying of a 6-year-old son wakened a family and enabled seven persons to escape from their burning home early Sunday in suburban Overland Park, Kan. Frank C. Dunn suffered burns on the face in running into another bedroom to reach a 4- year-old son. Dunn lowered the two beys from an upper-story window, helped his wife drop to the ground, then jumped himself. A 14-year-old daughter jumped from her bedroom. Then Dunn aroused two other sons in a basement bedroom and got them out. Mrs. Dunn estimated the loss at more than $10,000. Priest Dies ATCHISON, Kan. (AP)—The Rev.
