In this photograph, it is twice actual size. He Seeks Gold Raising Championship Guppies By Jerry Wilkerson Journal-Times Staff There's gold in guppies' tails, but not as much as there will be when Harvey Dunse gets through with them. Just back in Racine from the International Guppy Show in Cleveland, Ohio, where he took first and second prizes for his yellow variegated guppies, and also "best of show" honors over the entire field of 550 entries, Dunse has his work cut out for him. He's set on cross-breeding some of his champs to produce a new golden "yellow nubian" variety of guppy. The guppy got its name from R. J. Lechmere Guppy of Trinidad, who first presented specimens to the British Museum, Webster's dictionary says. Males Smaller The females reach a length of about two inches and are plainly colored. The males are much smaller, and have black, blue, and red markings. That's a definition for a regular guppy. Rarely — actually, not since he bought his first pair at age 15 while a student at William Horlick High School — has Dunse been interested in plain, ordinary guppies, though. Ask his wife, or his 21-year- old son, who also work in the 20-25 aquariums basement of the Dunse home at 2008 Case Ave., in southwest Racine. ^ , , , • , , , They'll tell you what guppies|"°" ^ hear anything.

Land Values Up, Buildings Down in Reassessments of City Property City Assessor Marshall E. Beaugrand announced last week that his department has completed a reassessment which boosts valuations on land in residential areas. But the reassessment will not increase the total valuation of improved property which has been assessed at market value, Beaugrand hastens to add. In those cases, he said, the valuation of buildings was reduced so that, together with the increased land valuation, the property would remain assessed at near market value. Beaugrand said he will send out 8,000 notices of changed land assessments on Tuesday. People receiving them, he cautioned, should look at the total valuation. "Unless that is over and above what they feel the property is worth, they should have no quarrel with our office," he said. "This is just another step in. keeping our property valuations up to market value," he St. Mary 's Hospital Mr. and Mrs. Donald Web er of 2060 Douglas Ave., daughter, July 3.

Beaugrand said a similar project involved mercantile and industrial areas three years ago. Most persons affeoted by the increased land valuation are owners of vacant property, Beaugrand explained. Subdividers, however, are protected by state law until a'large percentage of their lots are sold, he added. The reassessment project was started a year ago after the City Council adopted Aid. David Retzinger's resolution directing the reassessment soj assessed valuation of vacant property is in line with assessed valuation of improved property. The aldermen took that action after Retzinger .said the move would keep the city tax rate down and would speed up improvement of vacant property. Retzinger said then, "A-I number of people are taking'" advantage of a situation we • have allowed.
