1*he tfppef Des MoifteS^fiublican, December 17,1930 VIG1LANTESHRD PRACTICE SHOOT Representatives of Worth, Winnebago and Kossuth Co.'s at Forest City, OVER ONE HUNDRED MEN WERE PRESENT. Bankers and Sheriffs Accompanied the Vigilantes and Expressed Commendation on the Success. Vigilantes of three counties held a practice shoot at Forest City, Iowa, indoor range in the basement of the post office, which was a very busy place for five nights of lost week. Worth, Winnebago and Kossuth counties were well represented in this five evening shoot. Some very good scores were turned in. The shoot was conducted under the rules of the National Rifle Association and the shoot was run off the same as the indoor shoots are conducted in all parts of the United States. Out of 132 men belonging to the vigilantes of the three counties and under the direct supervision of County Chief Arnold, 104 men took part in the shoot, some of them driving sixty miles. Much Interest Shown. Sheriffs of the three counties are very much interested in tills way of getting the members of the vigilante committees together and as a result, every one of them were ttiere lending their moral support to the occasion. With weather and roads not of the best it was remarkable the number of vigilantes in attendance to take part in the shoot and Chief Arnold expressed himself as being very well satisfied. Bankers from the different towns accompanied the squads of vigilantes to Forest City and some of them turned in some pretty fair scores with rifle and pistol which convinced the boys that they could make it plenty tough for the bank robbers if occasion demanded it. With this cooperation and Interest in the counties of Worth, Winnebago and Kossuth, with alarm systems, sawed off shot guns, 30-30 rifles, machine guns and seventy-five per cent of the vlgilants expert with the pistol, we are in fair shape to take care of any trouble started.

ASSESSORS MEETING HELD WEDNESDAY G. L. Tinley Instructed the Assessors on Data Sheets and Other Work. ALL BUT FOUR ASSESSORS PRESENT. Go on Record as Opposing a County Assessor. Will Receive an In- creaste In Fay. County Auditor Bertha E. Johnson called a meeting of the town and township assessors Tuesday. G. L. Tinley, of Council Bluffs, a member of the board of assessment and review, was present and gave the assessors instructions in their work for this year, which will be different from that of past years. Under the new system buildings will be assessed separately from lands. Pass Resolutions. The Kossuth county assessors went on record as opposing a proposed law to provide for a county assessor instead of township and precinct assessors They suggested a change in the poll tax law that will provide a penalty of one dollar on unpaid poll taxes after April 1. As it now is, delinquent poll tax is collected by the treasurer the same as property and other taxes and the penalty attached is the same as on other delinquent taxes. They favor the present dog tax law and are opposed to a change. Receive Increase in Pay. The pay of assessors was increased over the 1930- schedule as follows: over the old schedule ten per cent and an increase of forty percent, after the ten per cent is added for the extra work resulting from the data sheets. For instance, where the pay was $100, the assessor will receive $110. Then an additional forty per cent is added to the $110 for the extra work. In addition they will receive 25 cents for isting each road poll tax. The assessors were given their supplies for the 1931 assessments. Assessors Present. Towns—E. H. Beardsley, Algona; R. .
