Objections were launched by Nevada county ski resort operators at a recent meeting of the Nevada . County Planning Com mission, which seeks to lay the groundwork to provide an orderly zoning plan to meet the expected population influx into Nevada county areas ne,ar Squaw Valley. OBJECT TO COMMITTEE Dennis Jones, representing re sort operators of the Soda Springs area on U. S. Highway 40, led the arguments against a proposal to create the special zoning com mittee drawn from several coun ties in the area, we already have too many commissions and committees attempting to direct our affairs and we don't feel that another com mittee will accomplish anything important," Jones said. "We have no problems and we do not approve of a planning committee which includes the Soda Springs area." Jones' statement followed a re- IRON HORSE HAS PLACE TO RETIRE One of the Reno city parks may become the final resting place of the "Genoa," historic brass-bellied locomotive of the Virginia and Truckee railroad, which was recently discovered in a Western Pacific roundhouse at Stockton, Calif. The Reno City Council voted Wednesday afternoon to give the Comstock era "iron horse" a place here, providing it can be obtained from its present owners. Mrs. Clara Beatty, executive secretary of the Nevada Historical Society, asked permission to place the locomotive in Pawning park Councilman Richard Taylor, " spoke of a Chamber of Commerce idea to convert a portion of the park into an ice skating rink during the Winter. The historical society will pay all expenses of enshrining the locomotive and install the necessary walks and cement foundation, and councilmen agreed they will find a place for the relic if it is obtained.

WRIT DEMANDED The petition filed Wednesday afternoon, demands an alternate writ and a writ of mandamus from the court, which would force the commissioners to appear and show cause why they "refuse and neglect to approve the appointment". Filed with the petition was an exhibit by Judge Rice, which contends it is the "inherent right" and the "exclusive judicial power" of the court to appoint the bailiff. The affidavit states that Judge Rice has been serving since Jan. 3, 1955, all this time with only one bailiff; that at least on one occasion there were three trials in session and that on one occasion three different deputy sheriffs were pressed into service as bailiffs in the court. Judge Rice states that in his experience as an attorney and judge, each court requires a bailiff to properly attend to business of the court. State Highway Toll Increases ed he was a civil service employe. Harris took the view that Al bert was a department head, and thus not entitled to the benefit of civil service regulations, Although Albert asked the city civil service board to consider his case, the board took no action, announcing that they had no jurisdiction unless the mayor filed a formal complaint with them. The franchise which Albert takes" over, effective Monday, is one which has been held by an other firm, and is to run until June of 1957. Under terms of the franchise Albert is to pay the city $50 a month, Originally Albert and another firm applied to the Elko city council for the franchise, but the competing firm subsequently withdrew its application. in that area TJnrr cqiiI Vie? r,.KKl.T - , , , , i .
