Scores Lawyers For Stand On Titles Unwillingness of Allen County at torneys to recognize validity of titles to land sold for collection of delin quent taxes was blamed by County Auditor Floyd W. Griffin for costs to the county of thousands of dol lars. The auditor cited state statutes providing that all liens and encum brances become invalid in forfeited tax sales, and said a recent Supreme Court ruling has sustained the law. Despite this, he said, attorneys ad vise clients to test the validity of each title. This, he said dissuades many persons from bidding for the properties. Auction sales of delinquent lands have been conducted for the past five years, and a sixth sale will open this spring, Mr. Griffin said.
