on Loop Property Owners Granted
Plans for getting after undervalued

the taxdodgers today.
Attorneys for Julius and Ass't

the revenue law which only carries
a fine of $200.
But from Hoyne's office came the
leak that he was going ahead with all,
rich men whom he finds deliberately
dodge taxes. One man went so far
as to say that before long criminal
"prosecution would be started on
charges of conspiracy.
