That body in turn derives its authority and its composition from the county board of supervisors. it is not the purpose of this newspaper to render a judgment on the validity of the York Township assessments. That can be determined and should be de- lurmmed only after a thorough examination of the facts. What is is that such an inquiry be conducted. The taxpayers of Du Page county demand that their interests be that the assessment and taxa- tion systems in Du Page county be of such uniformity that a owner in one part of the county will have confi- dence that a like property owner in another part of the county is bearing his 'full share of the cost of PcHmps it ought to be pointed out that the members of the Lioard of Review are faced with a real job. They may in the course of their inquiry be subjected to outside Under the most favorable conditions it is not an easy tusk to add to an assessment roll.. But in any the inquiry should be conducted in a public muntioi with all facts available to the people of Du Page county. This is the only way in which the public can have confidence in what is going on. We do not doubt that those in charge of the proceedings will see to it that this public confidence is maintained.

Gordon Bunge of Downers Grove. Bunge was appointed by the court. The contention of the petition was that he -was later transferred to the insane hospital at Menard without the formality of a court order. So important did this mat- ter seem to the state that As- sistant Attorney General Heed was sent to Wheaton to fight to keep Meyers serving his sentence. Sitting in with him were State's At-torney Lee E. Daniels and his assistant. Chief who left the Ben- scnvillc police department in 1934 was shot to death in Elmhurst while In pursuit of two suspicious a man and a who had stolen his squad car in Lom- after robbing a bakery.

The city council of Elmhurst has gone on record as being against the assessment rolls as turned in. The Lombard village board has adopted resolutions de- manding that something be done to rectify the situation. Another pro- testor is the York township high school which will be badly hit if the action of the assessor is al- lowed to stand. Other taxing bodies also have written the board of review in protest.
