' ' Two other counties—Chicot and Pope—have submitted M'ppralsal and assessment records for certification. The 1955 law provides for withholding a portion of stale turn- back funds from those' counties which had not raised assessments to 18 per cent by Dec. 15, 1958. However, no funds will bo withheld until moneys are distributed in April for the first quarter of 1959, so those counties which already have qualified or which qualify soon probably will not lose i\ny turnback. Also the l!)5fl General Assembly is expected to relax the penalty provisions of which fin, ther requires Hint assessments be pegged at 20 per cent of valuation by Dec. 15, U)!)9.
