The new equipment Is a far cry from the usual dilapidated garbage trucks teen, with Ihe vehicles now aboui the best looking thing., shown recently in (he motor line. Gleaming while, v.ith the words 'City ot Blytheville" painted on each side, the refuse equipment resqinblcs an oversize barrel atop a Chevrolet truck body.

The .smaller "barrel" returns empty to the rear and is refilled when Hie truck stops. When refuse seemingly fills the larger container, a prcsser, at the top. mashes all refuse into a bale- like consistency, so that many pounds of refuse may be carried there. It is said one load is equal to seven average truck loads. When filled \vith the pressed refuge, (he truck will K0 "to the Municipal clumping ground at the end of Chickasawba avenue, on the air base road, for dumping.

Baruch laid before the working comoiittce a complex chart analyzing- under 20 different headings all points of .agreement or disagreement brought out; in previous commission' discussions.; The chart showed that, on many points of apparent disagreement between (he Soviet and American atomic control plans—such as control of raw materials and international inspection — Russia s proposal indicated that "the door- Is open for negotiations." On two important points, however, Soviet-American differences were clearly outlined: America's insistence on abolition of the vclo from atomic enforcement machinery, and Russia's apparent belief thr:t U. S. atomic bombs should be scrapped before establishment of rigid ' international safeguards as envisaged in the American plan. liarueh said he was presenting the chart in an effort, "lo Kivc Ihe members a comprehensive view of ideas so far put forth," a com- munique naid. The committee also agreed, ai Ihe suggestion of Chairman Herbert V.
