Mr. Holmes reminds dock owners that it is necessary to have a permit from the Iowa Conservation Commission before putting in a dock and that a person is subject to a fine if not obtained. The permits may be obtained from Mr. Holmes at the State Fish hatchery on the north shore.

CLINTON Clear Lake — A plane circled over Methodist camp. A young man, Carl Carson, shot from the door of the 'hive." It was no stinging tragedy, however. The "hive" is the cottage where Walker and Troy Mills delegates live, lead by the Rev. and Mrs. Roy Scott. And Carl recognized the roar of the motor in the plane that sets down by his dad's feed mill in Troy Mills. "That's Mom and Dad," shouted this particular delegate to the 35th annual institute. And sure enough. In a very short time here came the Willard Carsons' who just flew up for the evening to visit their son. Dr. Arthur Henke, the new camp superintendent this year, who has been in attendance upon all but one of the institutes, had a new one to write down in the books. There is one minister on the grounds, who, though the newly appointed pastor at Rhodes and therefore an lowan, has spent just 3 weeks in Iowa so far, and each of these in a different town. He first came to Mt. Vernon where he went to conference as a man from Missouri named the Rev. Keith Howser. After that week he went to Rhodes, finding that the delegates were ready for Clear Lake. Has New Look There is a great staff in the newly built dining hall. This dormitory on south shore has a new look this year, having grown a huge ruffle, in the form of a porch around most of itself.

And Mrs. Verna Borrill of Ventura as chief cook, with Helen Maier of Dumont and Mesdames Eari Reed, also of Dumont, Maude Donald, Decorah, and Molly Tice of Clear Lake have certainly pushed heat aside and food forward this hot week. In the dining hall Marjorie Eltjes of Kelsey, manages for Pastor Shuey. Many volunteer workers assist the staff which is completed by Peggy Warner of Hampton, Esther Story of Epworth, Eunice Chamberlain, of Center Point, Louise Doughty, Burlington, and Carol Waggoner, Iowa Falls. Friday night closed the first half of the Upper Iowa conference institute with th~e 38 Davenport district charges and 30 Cedar Rapids charges ready to take off for home after breakfast Saturday morning The Waterloo, Dubuque, or northern half of the conference comes in Sunday afternoon. The Methodist Camp project ha much beauty, due to the lay-out provided by Ames engineers years ago. They made the acreage a large half wheel facing the lake Around the tabernacle are circular drives, and down to the shore all other streets come in like spokes. These were lighted lines heading out from the tabernacle Thursday night, as each delegation, lighted candles in hand, headed out and away to bear each his light at home, and then well, out of Clear Lake, missionaries have gone as far as India.

Corn: No. Kiwanians Hear Talk by Cleminshaw William Cleminshaw, of the J. M. Cleminshaw property appraising company, Cleveland, Ohio, told members of the Mason City Kiwanis club, at their weekly meeting Thursday, the system being employed by his company in revaluating Mason City. "Equalization is the essence of all our efforts," Mr. Cleminshaw pointed out in stressing the fact that all property in a municipality is evaluated on an impartial basis. "This revaluation is done to establish new and correct tax levies. We have a staff of highly specialized assistants that can accomplish their work in a minimum period of time, for if the job is to be done efficiently, time must be economized," stated Mr. Cleminshaw. For Equitable Distribution Cleminshaw said that the purpose of the revaluation is the resulting equitable distribution of the tax burden. "We make a systematic inventory of all property, both private and commercial, with a systematic inventory of all property, both private and commercial, with a system developed through 25 years experience," he added. "After our inventory has been completed, we place in the assessor's hands the tools that will enable him to continue the system in future years. Usually in 10 or 20' years after the first evaluation, it is necessary to revise the initial figures, but this is completed in a short time and without great expense." Mr. Cleminshaw stated that 1941 is used as a basis for establishing the value of property, for this year was comparatively stable, uninfluenced by the frenzy of war, and there wasn't great inflation. The cost of materials and the worth of property in that year are used as a yardstick in determining present day values. Many persons, he said, have the the erroneous belief that revaluation will increase the tax assessments on all property in the city. In opposition to this theory, Mr. Cleminshaw said, "The tax rate on approximately one third of the property will be increased, one third will remain approximately the same, and the rates on the remaining one third will be reduced. The total evaluation will determine the tax rate." Measure Homes Mr. Cleminshaw said in outlining the procedure used to ascertain the value of residential property, "We first measure the home, determine the age and con- 1 yellow S2.11>/ 4 «712; No. 2. ..
