r Weld Assessed Valuation Increased $14/179,450 By FRANK COLOHAN Tribune Staff Writer Weld county's assessed valuation increased by $14,179,450 to a grand total of $198,803,020 this year, County Assessor George E. · Barber reported Tuesday. The 1968 total was $184,084,170. The final 1909 total is a gain of almost $2 million from the $190,894,350 valuation that v reported when the abstract of county assessments was sent to the State Tax Commission in August. Normal -Changes, Additions Barber said the increase is due to normal changes and additions in the valuation figures that are made between the time of abstracting assessments and certifying them to the various taxing bodies of the county. The assesor Tuesday also released the assessed valuations of school districts of the county for 1909. District Six Valuation Gains This showed that the valuation of Greeley School District No. Six had climbed ?2,806,990 to a total of $72,044,800. Barber, reporting that the valuation of all the school dis- tricts had gone up with the exception of joint district JR-: in (he southeast corner of the county, said the largest percentage changes · were in districts which have a lot of grazing land such as RE-11, which has its administrative office at New Raymer. Grazing Land Higher Barber explained that, even ifler a 22 per cent reduction in the valuation of grazing lands that was ordered by the State Board of Equalization, the validation of grazing land was still 33 per cent higher than it was prior to the completion of the reappraisal program this year. The 1909 valuations of the other school districts were reported as follows: RE-1, Platleville-Gilcrest and La Salle, $12,349,090, up from ?11,118,980 in 1903; RK-2, Eaton, $21,129,230 for a gain of $2,673,380; RE-3, Keeneshurg, $14,054,510 as compared with $12,798,710 in 1968; RE-4, Windsor, $10, 399,38 up $682,320; RE-5, Johnstown-Milliken, $9,945,730 as compared with $9,806,100.

Bob Sanborn, factory manager at Greeley, reported that the final payment from the Greeley factory would be $279,650.47. Sanborn said the payment was based on a total crop | try. The figure included beets purchased in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana and Texas. Total cash returns for the 1908 crop averaged $17.44 per ton. Harvesting Behind Meanwhile, harvesting of this year's crop fell further behind this week as area farmers awaited warm weather to dry soils left wet by October snow- siorms. Redman said a few beets of 210,838 tons.

Sugar beet growers in six western states gathered ?0,488,000 on the final payment for the nothing to get cited about." "By Nov. 4 of last year we had harvested 95 per cent of our crop," Redman said.

MINICLIER Associated Press Writer MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) -- A military coup overthrew Somalia's elected government early today less than 24 hours after the funeral of assassinatec President A b d i r a s h i d All Shennarke. The self-styled Revolutionary Council' said in a broadcast: "The revolution was staged to save Somalia from the corrupt malpractices of the ruling classes." The council said it will "abol- sh all the bad things left be- lind. Somalia, will be led by res- )onsible people, and tribalism will be abolished.' The council announced that .he country had been sealed off from the outside world and that airports and seaports were closed. Some 400 Americans live in this sun-baked coastal city and in other parts of Somalia. Troops in" full battle dress ,vith fixed bayonets took control jcfore dawn amid an unusually heavy rain. There was no official word on :he whereabouts of Prime Minster Mohamed Ibrahim Egal, jut his beachfront house was under military guard. He was criticized this week by ocal newspapers which accused lim of selling public lands at drastically reduced prices to political friends. No shooting or violence was reported by persons walkimg about the city. Shcrmarke was assassinated jy a member of his police guard during a tour last week ot drought areas in northern So- nalia. The country had been calm following the assassina- ion, apparently because Shenn- arke and the alleged killer were from the same clan.

Sandoval told the Tribune Tuesday morning that he received word from Ralph Rivera, executive director for the Colorado Council on Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Workers and Families, lhat Rivera's office had not yet received government funds for operation of the Council through the 1909-70 year. The funding year for the Council runs from Nov. 1 to Oct. 31, leaving only 10 days of funds for the current year. The Colorado Council, which is now in its third year of operation, was granted $1.3 million last year. Sandoval said the share channeled to the Northeastern area amounted to about $350,000. Sandoval said that a discontinuation of funds would mean loss of subsistence money provided by the Migrant Council to some 40-50 household heads involved in education courses at several centers around the county. Job Loss In addition, 15 employes of the Council would lose their jobs, Sndoval said, and 15 students on stipends from the organization would receive no furl her funds. Also affected would be approximately 30 children directly involved with the Parent-Child center located al 930 B St. in Greeley..The teen center, located near the Parent Child center, would also have to be closed BONN (AP) - The Bundestag elected Willy Brandt chancellor of West Germany today, ending two decades of Christian Democratic rule and giving West Germany its first Socialist chancellor in the nation's 20-year hislo- '7- The vole in the lower house of Parliament 251-235 in Brandt's favor with five deputies abstaining, four ballots invalid and one deputy absent.
