Counties Praised When. Tax Multipliers Upgraded By TOM LOETU8 Telegraph Correspondent SPRINGFIELD, ILL. — The Illinois Department of Revenue, In announcing some of the tentative multipliers which it assigned to the various counties for application to the county's total property assessed valuation, credited two counties with doing a tremendous job of upgrading property valuations. The two counties are Clinton and Gallatin, in South Central and South Illinois, respectively. Clinton's last multiplier was 3.5714, which meant the total property valuation in the county was increased 3.5 per cent. However, this year, the department has given Clinton a tentative multiplier of 1.0204, meaning its total valuation will be hiked only .02 per cent. Gallatin County was even more of a sharp hike. Its last multiplier was 4.5455. This year, it has a tentative multiplier of 1. In each instance, the county hired a supervisor of assessments who worked closely with his county board of supervisors, his township assessors, and the county boards of review, the department said. Most of the larger counties have not yet submitted the abstract of their total assessed property valuation to the department. Most of them wait Until late October or November. • Madison's Not Submitted Among those for which tentative multiplier is not yet computed are Madison, St. Clair, Will, Rock Island and Kane. Among the counties now assigned tentative multipliers are (and the assessed valuation fig- ares do not include railroad or capital stock): Adams, with 3.4483 as compared with its former multiplier of 3.2258 (assessed valuation $234,147,000); Henry, 1.2658 compared with its former multiplier of 1,2195 (assessed valuation, $204,811,000); Mercer, 1.0870 compared with its former multiplier of 1 (assessed valuation, $75.998,000); Pike, 2.1277 compared with its former multiplier of 2. (assessed valuation, $76,611,000); Kendall, 1.1628 compared with former multiplier D£ 1.1111 (assessed valuation 5111,468,000); Hancock, 1.0417 compared with former multiplier of 1 (assessed valuation, $114,838,300). And, Brosvn, 1.8182 compared with former multiplier of 2.5000 (assessed valuation, $20,515,000); Greene, 1.0989 compared with former multiplier of 1 (assessed valuation, $58,543,000), Washington, 1.0526 compared with former multiplier of 1 (assessed valuation, $62,316,000); Bureau, 1.1111 compared to former multiplier of (assessed valuation, $194,155,000); and Franklin 1 compared with former multiplier of 1.2195 (assessed valuation, $74,338,000). To Equalize State The state assigns the multipliers as a means of equalizing property assessments throughout the state. Under a law passed in 1959, county boards of review may now assign multipliers to townships in their own counties as a further means of equalizing assessments. The multipliers are assigned this year only to counties organized on townships. The commission counties have a different quadrennial year than township counties and as a result, are keeping the multiplier which the department assigned them last year. Lincoln Will Be Featured In Illinois' Fair Exhibit SPRINGFIELD, 111., — The Illinois Commission on the New York World's Fair has decided upon an architect and key visitor attractions for the Illinois exhibit at the 1964 - 65 New York World's Fair.

The Chicago firm of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill has been chosen as the architect for the Registration Dates Set at SIU Centers EDWARDSVILLE — General registration for fall quarter classes at Southern Illinois Uni- versary's Edwardsville Campus will get underway at Alton and East St. Louis Sept. 25, the registrar, John H.

The commission s completing arrangement with Walt Disney's WED Enterprises to present a 10 - minute production, "Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln," which will dramatize the personality and philosophy of the martyred president. Newman said the unique dramatization will use newly developed techniques of three dimensional animation, called "audio- animatronics," in a life - like figure of Abraham Lincoln to recreate the words and thoughts of Illinois' most famous son. The system combines and synchronizes sound effects, voices and music with animation. The Disney production will be only one of the visitor attractions at the Illinois exhibit. The commission also is considering the presentation in replica of one of the main buildings of Illinois' foremost tourist attractions — Lincoln's New Salem State Park. The Illinois pavilion will contain a library where visitors will be able to relax and, if they desire, read a book about Lincoln; see some of the most famous original Lincoln manuscripts and portraits of the 16th President by leading artists of the past century. Since the spoken word was one of the main forms of education and entertainment in the Lincoln era, the Illinois exhibit will feature frequently in person some of the world's leading personalities, including statesmen, scholars and philosophers, speaking about Lincoln, his influence on their lives . or their country or their special field of interest. Opening on April 22, 1964, the New York World's Fair will run for two seasons, from April to October in both 1964 and 1965.
