AVill Lose Assessments Whatever arrangement is made Dislricl 17 is certain to bear a major portion of <lie local financial burden. Aside from its share of the cost of acquiring rights of way the district stands lo lose $208,000 in good assessments on land to be included In the floodway. It is nl: so likely to lose abonl $800,000 iu assessments on the so-called Bis • Kike lands, .if the east Icvce of Big Lake is set back as is expected, but that will be largely a p.ip. loss, as t' lands arc paying no laxes. Tlic estimated $250.000 worth of light of way w'-.ich must be provided in Mississippi county is of course only a small part of whal is needed for Ihe entire St. Francis valley program, which provides for work in seven counlles in Arkansas and in five or more in Missouri.
