INCREASE IN VALUE OF OKANOGN CO. PERSONAL PROPERTY Personal property of Okanogan County is valued at $2865,470 for assessment purposes, according to the annual report of personal pro- perty valuations forwarded last week by H. A: Yates, County As- sessor, to the State Tax Commis- sion. This represents an increase in valuation of $261,000 over last years' figure, The report shows a decrease of 1,78D head in the number of cattle but the valuation increased 4.4%. All other livestock droped off in value, especially hogs and poultry, which deelne 43.6% and 34%, respectively. Other claes of personal pro- .perty gena]y increased invalue except heatre furniture and equip ment, and lumber products, which show a decrease, The principal classes increasing and the percent of increase are: rherhanddse stock and equipment, 19 %; and agricul- tural machinery and equipment 27%. This shows a very healthy condition throughout the county, Yates believes, in view of the dif- ficulties 0f:ol)taining merchandise- and machinery I at the present time Pv.

Men returning from the services will have access to funds to assist them in establishing a home or business and every one will need some con- truction. Thousands Looking For Jobs -'r " Work Mg4J Soon Be Available The sudden and rather unex- I peeted stop in the war effort created a situation without paral- lel in the history of the world. That thousands were dropped from well paying jobs without warning was unavoidable. Regard- less of constant warning, too many of these have little or no cash reserve and to those who are unskilled work may come slowly.
