India — (,<Fl— A seven-year plan for the coordinated development of India's major river valley projects will be discussed at a New Delhi conference. The Works.

The itcin follows: "The constable's office Informs the Courier that one of Hie big still operators , . . was recently retertsod from the penitentiary and is hack home. Such travesties on Justice as this is what encourages law violators to act ivilh impunity. Why should they fear the law, when there is such woeful disregard for the enforcement of the law by our governor and the lawmakers, who conceived the lenient paiole system " Merger Announced Another news Item announced 'the merger of cotton compress interests in which Ihe Citizens Compress purchased Hie slock of thr.
