Continued from Page i state tax commissioner had not granted a 30-Day Extension to listers on their filing deadline until june 28, four Days after the original statutory deadline. This Extension by the tax commissioner had come after town voters had approved a 30-Day advancement on the Date a aug. I to sept. I a when tax Bills Are to be sent out by the treasurer a having received the Extension from june 24 to july 24, o Rourke said that listers had then not filed their grand list abstract with the town clerk until july 25. Town officials immediately noted that july 24 was a sunday and that therefore the actual deadline Date As a result became monday july 25. Barber however noted that in some cases state Law recognizes a shift in deadline because of a sunday but in other cases does not. The possibility that the 1966 grand list As filed May be invalid because of these technical flaws immediately raised the next question of where would the town be if it did prove to be invalid. Some of those at the meeting Felt that the grand list would immediately revert to the 1965 grand list this it was noted would probably involve the calling of a special meeting by the various local municipalities and school districts for the purpose of revising the 1966 tax rates which have already been set based on estimated increases in the 1966 grand list resulting from the reappraisal. Barber thought that the town might have to get the legislature when it convenes in Early 1967, to validate the present 1966 grand list and he noted several other complications that this might involve. Noting also that a we might have to Start All Over again in the preparation of a new 1966 grand list he referred to this being done by an outside assessing firm but noted that such an outside assessment could t be done in time for use this year. In this connection at one Point he said a i think we re stuck at this time with the present work of the listers a which brought a Hue and cry of a no no no a from the group assembled at the meeting. The desirability of an outside professional appraisal was voiced by several of the taxpayers astronomy notes most meteors Are Small particles usually about the size of a Grain of Sand moving in interplanetary space.

Marcus Honey of old Bennington thought that this should be done every three to five years and noted that while it would Cost the town substantial outlays the taxpayer satisfaction that would result would be Well Worth the investment. Virginio a Max Perrotta questioned selectmen on the $40,-000 figure that had been publicized As the expected Cost of a reappraisal made by the Cole layer and Trumble the firm that had carried out a reappraisal in 1950-51. He wondered if such a Job had been put out to bid thinking that if it had a lower figure might have been obtained. He noted that he had recently seen a figure of $44,000 published As the Cost of a professional reappraisal for North Adams mass., a Community according to him three times the size of Bennington. Selectmen indicated that they thought that voters never would have approved of the $40,000 reappraisal and for this reason had agreed to having the listers carry out the Job themselves. The result of this noted Joseph Higgins chairman of the selectmen was that a we hoped to have saved the taxpayers some $30,000.�?� selectmen also noted that in 1958 voters had turned Down a proposed professional reappraisal of personal property that would have Cost $5,000. Several of the property owners at the meeting described in some detail their individual grievances. Concluded Russell e. Mack of 329 Dewey St. After describing what he Felt were several inequities in the listing of other properties when related to his a this was strictly a Lousy Job of re appraising. Personally i Don t think the listers knew what they were the existence of alleged a Gross inequities a according to Barber would not be grounds alone for invalidating the 1966 grand list. He noted that property owners who have grievances do have special channels available to them. It is up to the individual property owners he said to follow these to Correct any such inequities As he feels exists. But the consensus of the assembled taxpayers appeared to be contained in the statement of one Man to the town counsel on this Point he said a emr. Barber what Are you going to do spent a whole year taking appeals a the action last night followed from the presentation to selectmen last week of a petition calling for a special town meeting at which the whole question of the property reappraisal could be discussed and to take whatever action was a deemed necessary when Barber however appeared inclined be to recognize the petition because of the generality of the reference to voter action. O Rourke indicated that he had been contacted by a group of taxpayers including Max Perrotta Louis Perrotta or. Richard Slee Man George a. Sleeman Olaf Bard h. Lee combsjr. And Donald Hemenway. O Rourke rested his belief that voters could take action on the acceptance or rejection of the grand list on the grounds that this represented a tax or Money matter something within the Basic control of voters themselves.

Few plays could Rouse an audience More than the one which opened tuesday night at the Williamstown theatre. To begin with a the persecution and assassination of Jean Paul Marat As performed by the inmates of the Asylum of Charenton under the direction of the Marquis de Sade known for Short As a Marat sad takes place in a Madhouse. Most of the Large cast Are inmates who present a morbid spectacle of spasmodic gestures vacant looks and personal obsessions As they wander onto the stage from a trap door at the opening of the play. Equally morbid is the subject matter of the play. The inmates of this famous French Asylum As part of their therapy stage the stabbing of Jean Paul Marat a Leader during the French revolution some 20 years before by the Beautiful Young and disillusioned idealist Charlotte Cor Day. And we the audience along with the head of the Asylum and his family a Are Bourgeois parisians who have come to be entertained by the deranged individuals on stage. All the action in this play a within a play leads up to the stabbing of Marat a fanatical social crusader perpetually confined to his Bathtub with an incurable skin disease. But what lends an Aura of eerie urgency to the production Are the inmate performers themselves. One of them an aristocratic sex maniac known As the Marquis de Sade has written and performs in the play but his fellow performers do not faithfully adhere to the script. Many forget they Are Only acting out make believe parts they become carried away with their roles and convince themselves they really Are the masses who blindly sought Relief from misery in the revolution. Though the audience May Comfort themselves in their knowledge that All theater is make believe these players clearly do not and the result is an uncannily effective indictment of the audience a both As the bourgeoisie in the play who turned teen agers meet with gof game Date Richard Snelling Republican candidate for governor met with some country teen agers last sunday at a barbeque sponsored by the Bennington county Young republicans. The Outing was held on Lake St. Catherine at the Camp of or. Robert treat of Manchester. The High school students talked informally with Snelling about some of his proposed plans. It is hoped that by encouraging the teen agers to become Active that there will eventually be less apathy among Young people toward political involvement. Snelling was accompanied by his wife Barbara and three of his children Jacqueline air. Drew and Mark. Sen. Allan b. Angney or. Of Arlington was also on hand to Greet the Young people. The teen agers also enjoyed swimming water skiing and boating at the Barbecue. The revolution to their own selfish purposes and More importantly As the modern Day hypocritical bourgeoisie whom playwright Peter Weiss suggests we Are. Yet the indictment is not quite so Clear Cut for Weiss counters it by suggesting that life after All is a Madhouse and we Are no More sane or responsible than the inmates themselves. The play is full of other Fertile thoughts though some disappointingly approach being cliches such As the attacks on religion and War now in Mode among sophisticated audiences. It would be misleading to suggest however that a Marat Sade is a great philosophical play. Its greatness rather lies in its theatrical inventiveness. Mimic music dramatic metaphor fantasy and gory realism Combine to create an atmosphere of astonishment at the unexpected. The Asylum crowd too adds to the unpredictable with its raw passion for excitement and violence. At the end of the play the inmates turn on the guards and attack the head of the Asylum. Weiss also makes poignant use of symbolism. In one scene an Erot maniac cast As an aristocratic admirer of the Beautiful murderess tries to rape the girl who portrays her while spouting platitudes about the proper concerns of society. The Williamstown company has done a commendable Job with an unusually difficult play. The Asylum crowd proved most convincing though their actions could easily have seemed contrived. Stacy Keach played the anguished Marat with sympathy and insight and Tony Capodilupo As the Marquis de Sade also performed Well though he did t convey the impression of the passionate even Lustful individual he is sup. Posed to be. The setting with its Walls that seemed to extend endlessly upward was appropriately Bleak and forbidding. My wily major criticism is that the production struck me As being generally a conservative treatment of a play that seems to Call for the destruction of All theatrical convention if its merits Are to be enhanced.
