Torgerson of Midland Constructors, the general contractor, and were giving an impressive performance when the pumping station was visited by a Telpgraph reporter. Drawing water frorn the sump area near Ihe pumping station, one of the two 3(i-inch pumps was throwing an estimated 23,000 gallons a minute over the levee-top and into the Mississippi. About 30 yards from the shore at Ihe outlet structure, the heavy flow from the 30-inch discharge pipe was evidenced by a boiling circle, about 100 feet in diameter, where the outflow churned to the river surface. Stage of the Mississippi yester- Meetlng In Chicago Thursday, the executive hoard of Illinois Municipal League adopted five i major ".suggestions" for consideration of Illinois Municipal Revenue commission. It was said today by Mayor Linkogle who participated in Ihe discussions. First, the board recommended an increase in the sales lax from j two to three percent, with the ad- ', ditlorml onp percent to be ear-1 marked for distribution among II-j linois cities and villages on a per j capita basis for use in protecting i health and safety. i Second, that cities and villages i be given added licensing powers with right to license for revenue rather than for regulation. Third, power to tax gross receipts of utilities within municipal ! boundaries. I Fourth, a "strong policy" (against) enacting leglslaliori that adds lo costs of municipal government without providing revenue to pay the costs. Fifth, a greater measure of home j rule for cities arid villages. The meeting was unusually well attended, said Linkogle, with more than 50 board members present, and adoption of the recommendations was by a majority vote. Few of the mayors or other municipal officials present mentioned their own municipal financing problems, Linkogle commented. "There seemed a full underslard- ing that the cities and villages are all in Ihe same boat—pinched f.n revenue in face of rising costs o( municipal services and requests for day was 20.5 feet, close lo the bunkful stage of 21 feet, but today a slight falling trend was noted. higher pay." The Municipal Revenue Commission, to which the League's suggestions are addressed, was set up by net Of the last legislature to make a study of the need of citie* and'village* for additional reve- MVNSAN, Korea, March 21. #n,ups and possible means of filling j Communist truce negotiators Indi- such need if found to exist. ! rated today they may be ready to May Rf-solve Problem of POW Exchange It is specifically directed to study additional revenue powers that, if any. should be given municipalities- to enable them to finance themselves; also the restrictions and safeguards Ihnt should be placed on use of such added powers. The league board discussions came at. a time when municipal financing problems are live topics for local communities where annual budgets nre in preparation. Mayor Linkogle left for the Chicago session following Wednesday night's opening meeting of t h e cily finance committee at which next year's city financing was discussed. Kdwurdrtvillp Loses Rail Crossing Case KDW'ARDSVILLK. — A ruling Thursday by the Illinois Supreme Court in n case appealed from the circuit court here cleared the way for installation of electric flasher signlns at one Illinois Terminal Railroad Co. grade crossing in Kd- vvardsville, but slammer) the door on the city's efforts to prevent closing of two other crossings. The City of F.rlwarrisville wns contesting an Illinois Commerce Commission order that the Terminal's Emerson nnd Llndenwood avenue crossing be closer! as UiR city's "contribution" toward the railroad's expense of installing automatic warning signals al its Madison-Franklin avenue crossing. compromise on the deadlocked Issue of exchanging prisoners of war. The Reds submitted a formal two-sentence version of their March 5 plan for trading prisoners. It made no mention of voluntary repatriation, the only important issue blocking agreement, However, other observers Interpreted what the Communist proposal did not say as significant. They sold the Reds may want to compromise, but are not ready lo say how. The Reds suggested that negotiations proceed on the basis of prisoner rosters exchanged Deo. 18, Under the Communuist plan the UN command would return 132,472 and the Communists 11,559. A second*group of staff officers working on truce supervision exchanged maps of 10 ports of entry through which troops and supplies will move into Korea during an armistice. A compromise on prisoner exchange could pave the way to speedy agreement on an armistice. Aside from the issue of voluntary repatriation, only two major problems remain unsolved. They are Communist nomination of Soviet Russia to a neutral inspection commission and an Allied demand for a ban on military airfield construction in North Korea.
