PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILI.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, MAT 8, ItW Businessmen Scolded For Urging Congress To Continue Spending By Slerllnjt F. Grcfn WASHINGTON, May 3. (AP) — Senator O'Coiior (D-Md) scolded businessmen today for bringing spending pressures on Congress. He told the United States Chamber of Commerce that such pressures have helped to pose "a definite threat - to our solvency." At a time when taxes nre the No. 1 problem of business, O'Conor said, buslne,'.s men are adding to their own woes by being "against federal spending—except ill their own neighborhoods." All for Economy "They're all for federal economy —except when it comes to closing n military, naval or oilier federal establishment with which they do business, or whose employes are their customers," the senator declared. The recent $1.500.000.000 rivers and harbors bill Is typical of the result, O'Conor said; Congress members were unable to resist the pressure from every section of the country for projects whoso ultlniafe costs "will run to many times that huge total." Need Spending Cut "The only possible way to avoid serious damage to our fiscal structure, and passible complete collapse," he said, "la to cut government sepnding drastically." O'Conor urged business, along with labor and farm organizations, to refrain from running to Wash- incrton in quest of special favors. O'Conor said the foremost goals of tax reform, In the interest of economic growth, would be a more liberal tax allowance to business for replacement of buildings and equipment and a removal of the present double taxation on corporate dividends.

For three out of the Inst seven nights, B major portion of the city has been blanketed by fumes var-, lously described as .sour, disagree-: able and a few things we can't print. It's not, jiust a run-of-the-nosc odor that can be tracked down in a jiffy—Uke the aroma of a skunk. Tliis is a sort of mysterious odor, No one knows exactly tram whence It cotnc.s or what causes It. Nor r!n any two sniffers describe it exactly the same way. One person may Inke a deep breath and comment: "Smells like so'.ir pickles." Another connoisseur offered this suggestion: "Somebody must be burning an old mattress." Hodges Bin HI General John U Hodges, chief of the city's air pollution control, was a little more general. "It smells sour." he snid after sampling Irvst night's odor, "ilke something caused by fermentation." Whatever the origin, Hodges said.. the fumes nre definitely not harmful to the public health—just unpleasant to put it mildly. The condition was observed first April 25—InsL Tuesday. Then the | orlor reappeared Monday night and again last night. It Is strictly a nighttime odor— it hasn't been noticed In the daytime at all. Hodges says this is because the damp air after dark holds fumes while the sun-warmed air serves to draw them off. Fumes Are Pronounced • Such f times. Hodges said, are probably present to a certain extcn most of the time but become more proim'-nced in certain weather conditions. "In a calm, humid atmosphere.
