A DEMOCRACY DEMANDS AN INFORMED AND ~ELF-RELIANT CITIZENR,Y, "AM VETS" A new national veterans' organiza- tion, the American Veterat~s of Worhl War II--Am Vets for short--has been born, following a meeting in Kansas City of rel)resentatives of servicemen and women from every section of the country. We wish them well, even thongh we cannot know at this time whether Ant- Vets will become the accepted and dominant orgaization of Worhl War II veterans, or whether some other as- sociation, yet unborn, will accede to that honor after the war. There is much difference of opiniou among veterans of past wars as to the nature of the organization the service- men and women of this war will want when they come home. There is also spirited rivalry between some of the old, established veterans' organizations ~() enroll the men and women of this war as members--and some believe that a tnajority ~,f the new crop of vet- erans will join one r,f the existing or- ~zanizations, rather than forming a new :~ronp of their own. Regardless of what organi/at (m they may choose to represent t]lenl, there can be no doubt that the ll,000,i~X~ men ; ~A'~ )!llen ~,VllC~ nc)~v eOtlI1)r13e i;ur 7"trna- ed f,rces will ats,~ conalwis(' ~mc r,f the most powerhtl forces in America dnr- ing the after-the-w'ar period--and will supply much of the Nation's leadership for many ),ears to come. The names of the officers elected by AmVets are new to us, as they are to the cou.'atry at large at this time, bnt somewhere in the ranks of the G.l.'s who are sweat- ing and fighting today arc :;ames that will figure large in the affairs of the United States during the decades ahead. America needs them--and America will welcome them back into the full estate they have won.

FROM THE OFFICE OF SUPER- VISOR RAYMOND V. DARBY- :; a rest;it ,{ a l=rrtrcd ,%tares 5;u- prcnlc (~uIt ,It cisilm sore(' $30t),0t)0,000 ,wad t)y thc i:e(teral co~ermucnt to ,real indusirial plants are subject to the (7,mnt'y tax levy, it was stated yes- tel day by (2omtty ,~;ttpervis()r Ray- nl(m(t V. IJarby. The far-reaching decision will af- fect hundreds of plants holding war contracts here, and will materially in: crease thc Connty's tax roll, Snper- vls,)r I)arby said. Of 17 larger plants, taken as an example, this money amounted to more than one htm(Ired million dollars in 1942. In, 1943 it had increased to more than two hutNred nfillion dollars, and in 1944 to more than three hundred million. This Federal debt to local industrial plants was placed on the County tax roll by the Cotmty Assessor over ob- jections of the plant owners, and the court (lecisi(m has Ullheld the jndgment of the Assessor. Supervisor l)arby de- cla red. The P, oard of Supervisors passed a. resohttion commanding the Cotmty As- sessor's office and the Connty Counsel's (,fficc for their ~xisdom, foresight .and jud~gment in coutemplating this early it] tbc (levelopmcnt of war industries. Some 340 field appraiscrs will meet at Patriotic Hall, South Figucroa St l.os Angeles, on Jannary 8th ncxt for instructions relative to the assessment of property for County taxes for the year, it was stated yesterday by Super- ~isor Raymond V. Darby. The Board of Supervisors Tuesday granted per- mission for this use of the Hall. Field assessors are expected to com- plete their outside work early in May after starting preliminary work shortly after the first of the year. The assess- ment roll must be completed by the last Monday in June, he said. The County Assessor's office this year faces a tremendous increase in its work load owing to the fact that all servicemen have been granted the veteran's exemlnion, Supervisor Darby reports. The Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution Tuesday which was offered by Supervisor Darby, asking the State Legislature to appropriate $10,000,000 for beach acquisition. In an effort to gain better control over spread of tuberculosis in Los An- geles County and obtain better coopera- tion among agencies combating it, County Supervisor Raymond V. Darby at Tuesday's mecting of the Board of Supervisors requested a meeting of these agencies itl the rtear future to stndy the problem. His motion for sttch a meeting was adopted by the board. To be inehtde(I in the session will be represeqtatives fr+~m vari,;n a~ene{es, County departments, and the County Tubercul,his .- dvlsurv Committee.
