Thomas Hoegen, board of review chairman and president of Hedges' Associates Inc., also called for deliberalion on the choice of an firm and was critical of what !M-- termed a "50 percent tax im- posed by the legislature. City Assessor Dale Piersall announced earlier this week that a "drive-by" evaluation would be conducted this fall in light of the big increases in the market prices of some homes. In a letter to Piersall, Hoegen concurred that a reappraisal might be necessary "to pre- clude a blanket, and therefore probably inequitable, tax in- crease from the state." However, the chairman of the board of review declared, "I do not concur that the 'drive-by type proposed is consistent with accepted appraisal practice nor is the correct approach when one considers the number ol parcels and persons who will be affected by this action." He told Piersall if an apprais- al is to be done, it should be more comprehensive and thor- ough and "our choice of an ap- praisal firm should be thorough- ly deliberated." Police are investigating two residence breakins on the south- east side which netted jewelry valued at more than Mrs. Frank Pfaff, 3806 Indian Dale circle SE, Thursday report- ed jewelry valued at more than taken in a breakin at her residence.

A lawyer representing one of the officers melt with Chief Justice C. Edwin Moore Friday afternoon to request a writ of certiorari, a petition asking the higher court to review the case. A similar writ was issued in July, but the court refused to rule on the case, saying the de- fendants should first secure a ruling from district court on their claim that the grand jury was illegally impaneled. A motion was then filed in dis- trict court to set aside the in- dictments, and the motion was overruled by Judge William Eads Aug. 20. The defendants claim several irregularities existed in the for- mation of the jury, including the fact that two grand juries were in existence at the same time, with members of each drawn from the same panel. Chief Justice Moore set next Friday at 10 a.m. for a hearing on the application for the writ of certiorari and stayed all further proceedings in the case until gineered most of the changes to he original document, said the Jopulation question had finally been put into the proper context of general development.
