Huntington Libnary^nd^ Art Qtiilery at San Marino.  Behind this simple statement of fact lies an interesting story, for the Huntington Library does not have the ordinary museum capacity for thousands of visitors daily, nor Is it located in the heart of a large city, as are most art museums. Nevertheless the collections of English paintings, manuscripts, rare books, and the Botanical Gardens have attracted an uninterrupted flow of visitor.'^ during the past eight years.

Arrangements for visitors have been steadily improved. Many who came in the first years will recall the crowding of the pictures in some of the halls of the art gallery and the difficulty of seeing the paintings adequa/tely. This condition has been remedied by the addition of a specious new gallery with Ideal lighting and ventilation. In this room may now be seen twenty of the most Important paintings, Including such famous portraits as Gains-  thusiastlcally put to use. When the borough’s “Blue Boy." Reynolds’ institution was opened to the public, January 27, 1928, it was thought that not more than 250 persons could be admitted in a single day ’  Mrs. Siddons as “The Tragic Muse, and Lawrence's “Pinkie.” With the removal of these canvases from their old places In other rooms and  and that three afternoons a wefek ' halls in the art gallery space be-would suffice for the demand.

January 21. at the Santa Anita Inn in Arcadia for an open discussion devoted to the allied themes of local government simplification and the “equalization of taxes” as between the Incorporated and unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County.

With the federal grant of $34,-430 00 set aside for Arcadia’s use as soon as the project gets underway, the contract is expected to be let next week so that the actual work can be started as soon as possible.  The Currie Engineering Co. of San Bernardino will supervise the construction of this improvement j work which will replace the two 16-Inch pipes now in use over the same route. With the present pipe in such condition that a severe ground shock would burst them, plus the fact that the pipe is not large enough to serve the territory, the installation of the' new lines is an improvement great- I ly needed here.  As many Arcadians as possible will be employed In the actual con- ’ struction of the project.  SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 15. (INS)—War veterans must pay a tax of $1.75 per $100 valuation on their automobiles, the State Supreme Court liad ruled today In declaring that the auto tax Is an assessment for the privilege of using the state highways, rather than a property tax on automobiles.  Veterans sought to include tlie tax as part of their $1,000 exemption allowed on personal and real property.  The court handed down its decision In a test case suit brought by Kay Ingels, director of the State Department of Motor Vehicles.  “The tax involved is one Imposed on the owner of motor vehicles for privileges of using th© highways of the state and is not, in Its nature, a property tax,” the decision of the court read in part.
