Hatfield, Covington, Ky., until July 11, 1934, when the corporation took advantage of the new section of the Bankruptcy Act.

New York, July 27 (AP) A fire in the hold of the United Fruit liner Atenas defied the combined efforts of the city's land and marine flre fighting apparatus for more than five hours today. The flames attained such propor tions that the crew of 50, many of them in pajamas, were forced to abandon the ship with all their belongings as she lay tied up to her Hudson River pier. For a time it was feared the flames might spread to other docks. Water from three fire boats and a quantity of hose lines from city hydrants were poured into the holds through hatches, companionways and portholes. So much water was pumped into her that the stern finally rested on the river bottom. Firemen were able to confine the fire below decks, and apparently the hull itself suffered no major damage. Barrels of oil stored in the hold caught fire and sent out huge clouds of black smoke. Lieutenant Lawrence Fagan was overcome. He was carried safely off the ship. Firemen said they thought the fire would continue to smolder in the hold all day. It is not known how the conflagration started, nor could the extent of the damage be estimated. The Atenas was to sail for Honduras at noon today. .50 6. Pull-out broiler. 7. Burner pan. 8. New heat-spreading burner. 9. Time reminder. 10. Lamp. CINCINNATI Basement COUNTY I'M.

Unusual proceedings were filed in Common Pleas Court yesterday on behalf of County Auditor Heuck and County Treasurer Harry A.

Williams, each official files the same action. They alleee that the State Tax Commis sion heard an appeal from the Auditor's appraisement of $2,373,880 for the property, and accepted an ai-fidavit as to the cost of machinery and equipment, which, the officials declare, does not show the entire cost. Thev further aileste that the Au ditor and the Hamilton County Board of Review were not permitted to offer rebuttal evidence, but the State Tax Commission acted on what was before it and reduced the valuation to $2,194,180. In addition, t is set forth that the Tax Commission's order locates the property in Cincinnati, instead of the City of Lockland, and the Court Is asked to set aside the Tax Commission's order of reduction and determine the real value of the property for tax purposes. DRIVER LICENSE FAVORED BY OFFICIAL OF HOSPITAL Since March 15 when a state law was passed making It possible for persons injured in automobile accidents to choose the institution to which they desired to be treated, Dr. Walter E. List, Superintendent of Jewish Hospital, announced that between 225 and 250 victims of automobile accidents have been treated at Jewish Hospital each month. The numerous accidents caused Dr. List to express himself as being in favor of stringent state driver-licensing laws. While many have blamed drunkenness for the increased number of accidents, Dr. List said, he believed too many persons driving today are not fitted physically or temperamentally to do so. Modern automobiles which have simplified driving has caused persons who could not, or would not, drive a few year3 ago to change their minds, he added. GARDEN PARTY ARRANGED.
