TAXI COQUILLE HIGH RED DEVILS WILL OPEN NEW CAMPAIGN AGAINST WILLAMINA HERE TOMORROW. Tax Bill For Coquille, Devils Debut Friday; Property Owners Face Tough Bulldogs Takes Big Drop Property owners n the Co- quille area as well as most corners of Coos county will realize a sizable decrease in local taxes when tax state- ments hit the malls hez) Oct. 15. According to Coun%y Asses- sor A.D. "Curley" Leininger, taxes w.ll drop between $7.03 per $1,000 assessed value to 51, disabled veteran, is establishing a taxi service in Coquille subsidized Other reasons given for the decrease, according to the new county assessor, were Incre- ases (about 17 per cent)in Coos county public utility values ( a net change of about $6 million) as well as, "a general increase in land and timber values2, $7.88 per $1,000 for taxpayers in Coqullle Code Area 8. For example, property owners within the City o.  Coquille (Code Area 8,00) will betaxed at the rate of $27.75 .or fis- cal 1973-74 as compared to $35.63 this past year, a drop of $7.88 per $1,000. Leininger said the decrease for taxpayers within city lim- its here was the largest in recent years. He credited the drop generally to lower city budget, SWOCC and school district budgets. One of the major factors for the overall decrease in ra- tes was the increase in state support of schools from .2 to 30 per cent by the state leg- islature this past session. Oregon school districts will receive $143.5 million in ba- sic school support for the coming school year. These offsets total $1,491,316 in Coos county; and $1 6,647 for Coquille School District 8 as reported in last week's Sen- tinel. Throughout Coos county the only tax rate increase is in the City o." Powers due to increases in the city budget and the loss of Georgia-Pac- Ific Corp. mill, according to Lelninger. All other coge areas were down and he lar- gest decreases "came to Coquille area taxpayers. I Weather August/Sept. H L Prec. 28 81 54 - 29 '/8 40 - 30 '/2 43 - 31 71 43 - 1 80 35 - 2 88 38 - BY 'riM MAEYAERT The 1973 edition of Coquille high school football will be unveiled tomorrow night, Sept. 7, when the Devils take the field against a strong team from Willamina on Spike Le- slle field at 8 o'clock. Andy Klemm begins his sev- enth season as coach of the Big Red. Klemm remains con- fident in the talent of his youthful team despite a sche- dule that he considers to be, "Probably the toughest yet- Willamina and Reedsport are picked to win their leagues. Crater is a Triple A school and loaded with experience. Newport returns an experi- enced team:" said Klemm who sprts a 49-15-2 recordstnce coming to Coquille in 1966. This year's Coquille team will be generally inexperi- enced, but there are some definite strengths. Klemm is very high on his backfield tandum of Dennis Shields and Jay Andrews. Shields has been a starter for two years and was an all-league selection last season as a junior. An- drews also started as a junior and had a fine season. Shields and Andrews will captain the team this season. Guards Dan Billings and Terry Russell alsodrew men- tion from Klemm for their quiCkness. Billings is asenior while Russell is a junior. Klemm considers lack of ex- perience in his starters to be the team's main weakness as well as an overall lack of depth. "On paper, Gold Beach and Myrtle Point appear to be the favorites, but by that time Kids Day Sept. 22 The annual Kiwanis Kids Day is scheduled this year for Saturday, Sept. 22, according to Daryl Robison, incoming president. Divisions will be the same this year for the parade con- test-Wheels; Costume; Pets; Doll and Parade Prizes for special awards and a grand prize of $25. Judging Sept. 22 will be ,about 12:45 p.m. onthe County Courthouse lawn with the par- ade set for 1:30 p.m. The annual Coaster Race will be watch out for Coquille. I feel we will be strong when league play starts," said Coach Klemm commenting onthe way the Sunset Five stacks up this season. Myrtle Point is com- ing off the conference cham- pionship of a year ago while Gold Beach has a strong senior class and improved steadily last season. PROBABLE STARTING LINEUP NAME POS.

In the category of criminal law, House Bill 2194 as ad- opted has amended ORS 164.- 055 to add theft of a livestock animal regardless of itsvalue as a felony offense. Another significant change referred to by local police authorities under the game and boating laws affecting Oregon residents is House Bill 2359 as approved this session. This new law prohibits casting from motor vehicle or from within 500 feet of a motor vehicle artificial light on game mam- mal or livestock when person has in his possession or im- mediate physical presence a weapon with which game mam- mal or livestock could be killed. Another new boating law, SB-631 prohibits testing of racing motor boats in reslden- tlal areas. Fu*ure plans call for devices to measure deci- bels of sound. Also Senate Bill 814 pro- hibits person from abandoning boat on private or public pro- perty. D:rects sheriff to pro- ceed with removal on request of property owner. Past auth ority applied only on water. Again, under criminal law revisions HB-2717 amends ORS 166,290 and makes the sheriff of a coanty the only one who can issue a concealed weapon permit. Previously this authority had been gran- ted to chiefs of police, city marshalls and heads of police department. This law provides that an application mtst he filed in writing wlth the sheriff, glving date of birth, height, weight, color of eyes and hair, rea- son for desiring to carry the weapon, and the sheriff shall require that the applicant sub- mit to finger-printing at the time of issuance and renewal of this license. Fees for the issuance of this license can be set by the county court with a maximum of $10 for the issuance of a concealed weapon permit and $2.50 for renewal The concealed wea- pon permit will be issued on an annual basis. This law does carry an emergency clause and will take effect upon signature by the governor.
