The council minting at whkhi Mr. Tul! was appointed following a! citizens at which ire new progr:ui: was informally discussed, projects •.vc.-c suggested, and possible wav.5 of obtaining funds for tiie p:ircha-.i- of materials were sought. Sonii- consideration was given a snggc-s- lion by J. Mell Brooks, secretary of the chamber oi commerce, thai the city Issue .sell-re;iring scrip with which to finance material purchases. The plan calls fcr the issuance of scrip, guaranteed by the ciiy, which would pass as currency In Biythcvillc with the affixing o! a two cent stamp for each tram.ic- tion. After-50 stamps had jscn attached (he ciiy would redeem ihe scrip fen- cash. Sale by the c.ty ol the stamps would provide ne'ccs- sary funds for redemption of U-.e scrip. I Two major projects on which! relief workers will be employed' alter April l will be completion of Ihe long planned storm sewer nnd graveling of dirt streets. Materials supplied by Ihe current CWA organization will IK? available for these Jobs. There will also •>f a city wide clean-up campaign, :-tvm=orod by the notary club, which will include removal of nil trash and rubbish and graclim; of .ill allevs. Another project that seems virlnallv assured is comple- j lion of tlie airport, for which the j city has leased laud south of: Secretary Hrrjnks of the j Chamber of Commerce has already obtained a large part of the material necessary for this project, and al last night's meeting Ora Shonvo said thai lie personally would guarantee that the remaining material would be provided. Another possibility ts that relief labor may be used for construction of the proposed Mississippi County Fairgrounds, at the north limit.' of the city. Application for •i PWA loan to finance this work will probably be revised lo cover only the cosl of materials, nnd Ihus reduced it is hoped i! will receive approval. No time limit has been fixed on the new works program, which city officials have been led lo believe may last for a year or more, a quota of 700 men. it is evident a great deal of work can be accomplished provided the community is able to furnish the necessary' materials. This latter. It appears now, is likely to prove tlie limiting factor.
