Representatives for International Harvester Co. and 30.000 CIO United Farm Equipment Workers reached agreement last night on a new contract providing an 13-cent hourly wage increase.

Total cost of the new equipment will be approximately $7,000. and city officials said they hoped it could be put into operation before July 1. Plans call for thc employment of a director for this service which the city will operate on a fee basis. Families will pay 75 cents per month for garbage disposal service and commercial establishments will pay fees based on a scale which will be determined before lhe service is started.
