Committees to kid the city and county assessors In equalising the assessment rolls will be appointed by Chairman- C. Gorman of the Alameda County Civic Association, following the. regular meeting of the association 'last night.

The committees were suggested by County Assessor Horner and will aid him in the collection of data on Improper assessment alleged to exist both In the cty and county. The naln work of the committees will have "to be done previous to March 1, It Is declared, as on that date the actual work of assessment will commence. It Is hoped that the. Improvement clubs and other civic' organizations In 4he Intervening time will lend all possible aid to the association to help secure unbaised assessments from the appraisers In the assessors' offices. Twenty-eight Improvement clubs were represented at last night's meeting and efforts will be made to Increase the representation at the next one on Thursday, February 15, Owing to the short time before the beginning of the work of assessment, It has been decided to hold weekly meetings of the association.

A number of the delegates present brought forward additional instances alleged Inequalities In assessments. It was asserted by the speakers that If corrected these inequalities will result In an Increase In the total assessed valuation of property In the county of some and a corresponding reduction in the tax rate, from $3.28, the present rate, to not more than $2.25.
