December 12, 1976 I'/UJK l<> HAYS DAILY NEWS W Plan Authorized TOPEKA, Kan. (UPI) The Kansas Water Resources Board F*riday authorized staff to review the state's water plan and study which other autonomous local water management districts should be included in overall planning. Vice Chairman Wallace Robinson III of Scott City said the board must work to better coordinate the direction of the state plan with local groundwater management districts and watershed districts. Robinson said including the local management groups would mean a tremendous expansion in the state plan, but the board must move to tie all planning elements together. , "No one should be nieve enough to think we can solve our water problems through local autonomy," Robinson said. "This autonomous thing has been grossly overstated. Essentially people just wanted a voice. I do feel the groundwater management districts and the rural water districts too should be part of the state water plan." In its third annual report on the state water plan to the governor and the 1977 legislature, the board said the total water supply storage spaed in the 13 reservoirs constructed or under construction has a yield capability during prolonged droughts of 354 million gallons per day. The maximum annual federal storage payments, excluding operation and maintenance costs, is estimated at $5.3 million. The board forecasts revenue earnings on projected water use the next 75 years at $4.7 million. The board said as of Sept. 1, 41 applications have been made to negotiate purchases of the stored water. The applicants have requested a total of 206 million gallons of water per day. The legislature has approved only one contract so far for Kanss Gas & Electric Co. and Kansas City Power & Light Co. to buy 28.4 million gallons per day from John Redmond Reservoir for 40 years. Other major applications pending include Kansas Power & Light Co. for 20 million gallons per day from Onaga and 20 million gallons per day from Milford, the city of Lawrence for 14.9 million gallons per day from Clinton, Johnson County Water District No. 1 for 45 million gallons per day from Perry and Fort Riley, for 13 million gallons per day from Milford. W.E. Steps, deputy chief engineer for the board, said hearings on the, plan, held across the state, suggested the board should develop a more aggressive water storage plan and work more closely with groundwater management districts to' solve common problems. He said the board would present the 1977 legislature an updated, long range water storage purchase plan for the state reservoirs, the first major revision in several years. In other action, the board adopted a motion opposing further study of the proposed Round Mound Reservoir on the Big Creek in Trego County.because the city of HHS From Munsingwear BOYS' BRIEFS AND T-SHIRTS A long tirtif! favorite with millions of ntls because of built-in comfort anil ality, Munsinywear's • Kangaroo Men's WINTER COATS my the same comfort and quality millions of sons.

(UPI) — A. woman who said she worked as a call girl for three years Wednesday held a news conference in front of the Bernalillo County Courthouse' to read off a list of "prominent men" she said hired her for sex. .The woman, who identified herself as Alexandra Stephanie Janus, said she wanted to talk to reporters to illustrate the city's refusal to prosecute men who engage in sexual relations with prostitutes.

Ms. Janus said the state should either prosecute the prostitutes and men equally or legalize prostitution. 27th & Hall Hays By Justin Gottschalk FIRST IMPRESSIONS linger, it is said — an important fact to remember when you plan your decorating. What's the first thing visitors see when they enter your home? Unless your home doesn't have one, it's the entry hall. A lot can be ~~ done with an entry hall, even a very small one. Because space is limited, you can go dramatic with color and pattern, ' as in at. wallpaper. There won't be too much of it. Often a narrow or smaller chest, or a small table, can be used, with a handsome mirror over It to enlarge the space visually. The chest or table provides a place to put car keys and other small things you carry Into the house or need going out. And making use of an entry to gain storage Is a real space bonus. If you don't have a separate entry hall, you can often create one. A long chest, bookshelves, a storage piece flanking the door, a separate color or wallpaper for the wall beside the door, or even arrangement of furniture to define an aisle from doorway into the house — all of these can avoid the feeling of visitors plunging directly into, your l!vii\g room. Whether you're hunting for that small chest or table, or a handsome framed hallway mirror, or looking for a complete suite of furniture, the chances are good you'll find what you want in our displays. Come in, browse at your leisure, among the finest furniture and accessories. JUSTIN'S FURNITURE 6th & Main 625-7318
