6-Atgono fla.) Upper P M Melnef Thursday, Otf. W, 19$? Open Drive To Combat Rural Road Mishaps Plans fo: a cooperative attack by Sheriffs and thr Iowa High- tt'ay Patrol on tho secondary road aroidrnt problems have been announced by Sheriff Ralph W Lmdhorst who said action in Kossuth County will begin *oon •.Lieutenant Lloyd Meyer of Highway Patrol District' No ? said a basic plan for the campaign had been developed by representatives of the Iowa State {sheriffs Association and the Department of Public Safety. He said the program' was in line with the policies of both organizations which call for officers to do the most they can toward saving lives and feduc- ln ^i! stato ' s auto accident toll The two officers said the plans call for the Sheriff and the Highway Patrol to participate in in- termittant. but planned, patrols of the secondary roads in this County. "Neither the patrol nor this office can keep somebody on every road in the County all of the time, but we have worked out a program which will put officers in the danger areas at the times we believe they can do the most good.' the Sheriff said. "Our plans are based on maps which show the traffic flow on the secondary roads, and which also show where the fatal acci- f ?"!» have been ha PP c ning," said Lt. Meyer. There is evidence that habitually reckless drivers and those who may think they are only ''just a little drunk," are using the secondary roads as a means of avoiding enforcement officers," the Sheriff said. The officers said the secondary road traffic patrols were being planned for intermittant operation so that reckless or intoxicated drivers will not be able to predict in advance when the Sheriff ° r i 1 ] 1 ?. Hi 8 hwa y Patrol cars Would be on the secondary roads Details of the plan for the seven counties in the patrol district were completed in a meet- Ing of Sheriffs and Patrol officers Oct. 3, 1957 at Fort Dodge. See No Changes In Valuations While 13 Iowa counties have had orders to change property valuations, by the State Tax Commission, no such change is likely m Kossuth County, Leo Said Kossuth County has followed the suggestions and recommenda-, turns of the State Tax Commission, and assurance has been given that the figures compiled locally will be acceptable to the. state. It was announced several days ago from Des Moines that some counties had been ordered to increase property valuations, chief- iy in cities. In several other instances a lowering of the valuations took place. A change in the valuation does not mean that taxes will necessarily change. If valuations rise, the millage levy should go down correspondingly, unless the amount of money to be raised by taxation is increased. The chief purpose of the adjustment is to equalize taxes in some cases The City of Humboldt, for example, was ordered to increase Us property valuations by 10 percent. The White House in Washington was not officially known as such until President Theodore Roosevelt officially gave it that ?o£? e ^ an Executive Order, in 1902. _ n»P * Pmture Tank to?
