TO STAND UNTIL LEG1S-5
LATURE ORDERS CHANGE
Owing to the fact that a report
has been circulated in this county that
the State Revenue Commission has in
creased the valuation of real property
in Randolph county and the same has
been circulated throughout the coun
ty. Col. A. D. Watts makes denial of
the report that a recent, order had J
been made by the state board of :
equalization restoring the 1920 valua-
tions of real estate in counties which
made reductions in 1921 was contain
ed in a statement issued by Revenue
Commissioner Watts, prompted by the
publication of the report in at least
on state newspaper.
Declaring the report is .entirely
without foundation, Colonel Watts ex
plain the revaluation status submit
ting an opinion of Attorney General
Manning and having the following to
say on the subject r
The Law in the Case.
4"The facts are that a large num
ber of county officials had written
asking if the law permitted fcrther
general reductions in the assessments
"bf real estate to "be 'made bv the
county commissioners this year. The
commissioner, was oHhe opinion that
the ' provisions of the machinery act
of 1921 providing for general reduc
tion' by the three methods herein set
forth-horizontal reductions, revalua
tions and reductions in individual
cases, under one of which all counties
ha"d acted were limited to the year
1921, and that the assessments finally
made for that year would stand until
the general assembly provided for an
other assessment of real estate. At
torney General Manning agreed with
the commission in a written opinion,
which opinion, together with the let-
commissioner, have been
clerks of the boards of
"Of course, the provisions of the
law for increasing the assessments
where buildings have been erected
since the assessments were made last
year, and for reductions where bedd
ings have been destroyed, apply to

The state board of equalization ap
proved all the general 'reductions made

FOR OLD CLOTHINGTOR"
The Near East Relief headquarters
at Raleigh has asked the people of
Randolph county to send in a box of
clothing for the Near East sufferers.
These clothes will be shipped abroad
at an early dale to the relief worker
in the field who will distribute -them
in the fall to people who would other
wise have none. The winters in the
countries of the Near East are more
severe than ours, and it is easy to im
agine how children, and even erown-
ups with only a single garment would
suffer from the keen winds of that
coastal plateau. Last vear the dpo-
ple from all sections of Randolph coun
ty sent in liberal supplies of good
clothing that their families had out
grown and cast away. These things
will save lives. Wont you get up a
bundle, get your neighbor to contrib
ute, and send it to your county chair
man? The last two weeks of May
have been set aside in Randolph for
this work, and people are urged to
send their bundles to The Courier of
fice in Asheboro as earlv next week
las possible. .
