VOL. XLVII—NO. 161 BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS Daily New» Blythevllle Courier Mississippi Valley Leader Blythevilie Herald THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI CityStreetBond Plan Dropped Quirk in Procedure Negates 'Aye' Votes By CLAUDE E. SPARKS (Courier News Staff Writer) A proposal to float a $150,000 revenue bond issue foi development of Blytheville streets was dropped by the City Council last night after aldermen—by an odd quirk of parliamentary procedure—negated three "itye" votes by refusing to adopt the ordinance after clearing its three readings " * by unanimous vote. The proposed ordinance would have put the bond issue on the November ballot for the electorate to decide if the city should obligate one-half of parking meter revenues to provide immediate funds for street improvement. No property lien was involved and the final decision would have been made by popular vote Nov. 6. Refuting the proposal largely on the contention that the issue was vague and that the $150,000 was not clearly earmarked for "specific pro- jeci.s," the Council's contradictory action came after an hour and 15- minute pro and con discussion turned into a public forum with the represented public presenting most of the opposition. About 15 Clear Skies Aid to Fair ,, Opening Day's Attendance Set At About 3,000 By HAROLD NANCE (Courier News" Staff Writer) Clearing skies brought the promise of bigger crowds to the Northeast Arkansas District Fair as the rides, shows and exhibits began their second day of operation. Fair Association Secretary Robert Blaylock safd paid admissions yesterday numbered about the same as on opening day last year when a little less than 3,000 went through the gates. Rain and the resulting mud gave fair and carnival workers a hectic time as they got the show ready earlier this week and the threatening weather frightened away some customers. Mr. Blaylock said. ' The exhibits are Inside buildings *nd concrete walks down the midway protect patrons from the mud »nd sunny skies are rapidly, eliminating that problem. Mr. Blaylopk pointed out this morning.

The negative vote came as a surprise to most of those present. Those favoring presentation of the. ordinance to the public for a vole presented the following arguments for adoption of the ordinance: 1. The sfreet fund has been depleted since August and opening of the new Blytheville Hieh School about Jan. I demands provisions for street paving in that area. 2. A final decision on the bond proposal would be made by the public and not the Council, which would merely be approving its presentation on the ballot. 3. No lai lien would be involved. Retirement of bonds would come solely from parking meter revenues. 4. The city must h»?e funds If -^t is (o continue street development. It now has none for that iiiirinxe. • The opposition's stand was based on the following: 1. Plans for spending the $150,000 were not specific. Projects should be listed and a definite amount earmarked for that purpose. t. General opposition la obligating parking meter revenues, Meter funds should be ''built up" until enough money is available for a street program. 3. Winter weather would hinder or prevent completion of work around the new high school before next spring anyway. 4. Plans for street paving around Ihe high school are vague and this cost can not be estimated until the number and route of new- slreets is specifically outlined. (The school board has appointed a committee to outline these needs, but its report has not been made.) In last night's final action, Alder man Jimmie Sanders' motions and the seconds of Alderman Jessi White, foremost proponent of th bond tsue, curried the motioi through three unanimous "aye votes to reach a vote for adoption or rejection of the ordinance. (Law requires that any proposed ordinance must undergo three approved readings before a vote for its adoption can be taken.) .Vew Motion Entered Alter the third reading (each reading and vote giving tacit approval to the ordinance!, hovvevei Alderman L. G. Nash moved tha. 'the proposed ordinance NOT bt adopted." It was seconded by Fourth Ward Alderman Charles Lipfonl. The vote (on the motion NOT to adopt the ordinance): Jimmie Sanders—"No" Jesse White—"No" L. G. Nash—"Aye" J. L. Nabcrs—"Aye" Leslie Moore—"Aye" Charles Lipford—"Aye" Alderman Dan Blodgett and W. C, Cales were absent. Earlier in the evening, Alderman White presented the proposal lo the Council with the statement: "The only reason I want to borrow this money is to get some funds for carrying on our street improvement program. "In other words, l don't want us to run out again in 60 or 90 days," he said. Street fund Exhausted <The street fund was exhausted high in August and the city borrowed SS2.000 from a future county lax turnback, part of which went added costs of the Walnut S: project brought about by side and driveway replacements ; sower improvements.) "We have street projects coming up all over town," Mr. White said, be-j "and we must hav money. There are a lot of co-operative deals BLYTHRVILUS, ARKANSAS.

(AP)—Tlie United Nations command today rejected another Communist, suggestion that lull-dress Korea truce talks be resumed immediately. The Allies insisted that arrangements first be made to prevent further Jr.icrruptlons when the meetings arc resumed. The Reds made .their repeat proposal at a meeting of Allied and Communist liaison officers in Kaesong, Korea, site of the stalled cease-fire talks. It was the third and longest session held by the liaison teams in an effort to get the talks rolling again. •Whoever Ls flying these MIGs is using some of the old German Luft- waffe trick-s. They are a.s good a.? any German pilot-; l met, in the last war."
