SHE'S DYING — Mary Sue Dujka, 6, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Dujka, Creslwood, 111., is the last of three children, and is dying of a bone cancer. Her brother Robert died of injuries suffered in a car accident last year, and an 11 - month - old baby died of spinal meningitis. Sue now spends most of her time watching TV, unable to go to school. A benefit concert is planned for her and a fund has been set up. County, Home Needs New Sewage Pump An apparent error in the planning of the new adult care facility at Broadacres, the county home for the aged southwest of town, has forced the county to purchase a new sewage pump lift station. Commissioners said the existing lift station, which handles sewage from both the new facility and the old Broadacres building, is in working order. But the lines which bring sewage from the new facility come into the station so low that there is not an adequate reserve area. The station, which cannot discharge and receive sewage at the same time, is then unable to handle the sewage, and it has backed up in the lines on numerous occasions. Chairman John Sutton said the problem is apparently the result of the new facility being built at too low an elevation. If the facility had been on a higher elevation, the lines could have had "proper fall" and entered the station higher. Commissioners said they plan to discuss the problem with architect Norman Mann, who designed the building. The. problem became apparent not long after the new facility opened for occupancy in September of 1970. Lines Blocked Fortunately, a shop foreman with the county road department has been able to unblock the lines, Sutton said. The new lift station will,cost $5,427. The installation and hook up is expected to run another $700 to $800. Sutton said each lift station must* be designed to individual specifications, and delivery is not expected for five to six weeks. An estimated four days will be needed for installation. Different Action The new station "will be set deeper in the ground and will Breakthrough On Water? WASHINGTON (AP) - Two chemists reported Monday development of a new system of water treatment which they said may prove to be "the greatest breakthrough in water treatment technology of this century." Dr. A. P. Black, University of Florida consulting engineer and Dr. C. G. Thompson, con suiting engineer of Montgom ery, Ala., said the new pro cess—which uses magnesium carbonate in place of traditionally employed alum to soften or clarify water—should enable some of the nation's largest cities to reduce substantially the costs of water treatment. It should enable them also to simultaneously alleviate their sludge-disposal problems, the chemists said. They told about it in reports to the 162nd national meeting of the American Chemica Society, declaring the process is the result of more than ten years of research and evolved from Black's partial solution of a sludge-disposal problem first posed by Dayton, Ohio, city wa ter engineers in 1958. have a different action than the original pump," said Sutton. "It will be able to intake and discharge sewage at the same time, which makes it much more efficient." The new station will be set immediately south of the old one. Commissioners said the existing station would be used as i reserve station. Births Drop During First Half of 1971 WASHINGTON (AP) - The number of births in the United States dropped in the first six months of 1971, puzzling and surprising population experts at the Census Bureau. Census officials had expected the number of births this year would easily exceed those of 1970. Now they're not so sure. And, although it's too early to say, they're wondering whether an important new trend is developing in- population statistics. Figures published by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare show births from January through .June totaled 1,755,000, a drop of 17,000 from the same period of 1970. The Census Bureau had expected births to rise because the number of women of prime childbearing age, 20 to 29, is going up at the rate of 4 per cent a year. Last year, the statistics bore out that expectation, with the birth rate showing the strongest rise in nearly 20 years—to 10.3 per 1,000 population. But the fertility rate, which measures the size of families, remained stable, about 2.4 children per woman of childbearing age. "The stability of the total fertility rate shows that the (1970) increase in births of the past two years is not due to an increase in basic fertility rates, but rather to the rapid increase in the number of women in the prime childbearing ages the bureau said of last year's report. But the six-month figures for 1971 will change that view if it continues, for both the birth rate and the average size of families will show a "statistical decline. 40 Pet. of Frisco Pupils Miss Class SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Both supporters and opponents of busing are claiming victory after more than 40 per cent of the public school pupils missed classes on the opening day of a mass busing for integration program, San Francisco is the nation's largest city operating under a court-ordered busing plan. No figures will be available until later in the week on how many of the 26,000 students assigned to be bused actually rode them Monday, officials said. The school district reported 29,325 children attended classes Monday. 58.6 per cent of an estimated 50,000 enrollment. Normal first day attendance is 90 J per cent BANKAMERICARD.
