TUESDAY, JANUARY 7, 1969 THE! REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS 7—A Forms Refuse Into Bales hicago Buying Garbage To Test New Machine CHICAGO (AP) — The city of Chicago is buying assortments of garbage to make its own "scientific blend." "This is the most unusual requisition we've ever had," said John P. Ward, city purchasing agent. Ward received requests from James M. McDonough, acting commissioner of streets and sanitation for specified garbage items to test a new compression machine which forms the garbage into bales. "It's not as simple as it sounds," McDonough said over the [weekend. "You can't just take! plain old garbage off the trucks for the tests and bale it. You; have to know, specifically, what is in there." S&, McDonough has asked for the following items: Two thousand pounds of corrugated boxes, 1,000 pounds of newspapers, 600 pounds of heavy Brown wrapping paper, 350 pounds of waxed milk car- tonsf 600 pounds of dry magazines, 250 pounds of junk office mail, 150 pounds of tissue paper, 1,100 pounds of tin cans, 400 pounds of aluminum cans, 150 pounds of plastic products and 200 pounds of chicken wire. McDonough also asked for what was called "household waste materials", or household garbage. "Last year we had an average of a million dollars a day in requisitions," Ward said, "but nothing like this." McDonough said he hoped the city could obtain much of the required refuse without payment, but the purchased part, Ward said, "may run $100 to $150. Labor costs in picking it up may run a couple hundred dollars more." Ward added that one of the men in his department has been working eight hours a day "trying to sort out our garbage to see if we've got the necessary material." The scientific blending and testing will be conducted for three months by a four-member research team, and then the garbage bales will be tried for use as lakefill, according to Ward.

Some 106 veterans of World War I and 858 former GIs liv­ ing in Illinois will benefit with an average payment of $97, which is an increase of $18 over the 1968 average payment o[ $79, Naser said. They are among more than 250,000 World War veterans who will receive $236 million in dividends during 1969 throughout the nation. The dividend will be paid Ihioughout 1969 on the anniversary dates of the policies. The veterans need not apply for the dividend since payments will be made automatically.

Proof coins are struck only at the U.S. Assay Office, San Francisco, Calif., and during the calendar year indicated by the date on the coins. They are sold only in sets. On the face of each coin will appear the mint mark "S" to designate its production at San Francisco. The coins will be made from carefully selected coin blanks that have been highly polished before being fed to the presses. Each coin is struck twice and will have a mirrorlike finish. These sets will be packaged in plastic containers. Price of $5 per set includes first-class, registered mail fee. Maximum number of sets per order is 20.

Communities along Southern Railway lines have been getting a big boost from new industries. Our industrial development specialists, plus a continuous 26-year national advertising program, have helped bringtoour hometowns over 6,000 new major industrial developments since 1950. These called for an investment by business of more than $9Vfe billion (much of it spent nearby) and provided some 360,000 job opportunities in the Southern-served South. HATCHING . New kinds of railroad cars are one result of the more than 1.3 billion dollars we've invested in our own operation since 1945. "Big Boy 8 ", for example, carries 2Vz times more tobacco than standard boxcars— and this helps our customers cut costs, which can mean savings for the public in the South we serve. RINGING . More business for the South comes from Southern Railway's innovations—such as the "Big John®" grain cars that made possible a 60% rate reduction. And more business means more jobs. No wonder the South is growing so fast! 10M MffMt 'lOOK tOUtM RAILWAY SYSTEM / WASHINGTON, D.C. ' -VATIONS THAT SQUEEZE THE WASTE OUT OF DISTRIBUTION
