Two major points brought oul bv Mr. Sudbury called for the extension of bus service to other . rts of Ihe q'ty not now on routes and the bringinc of additional revenue to the city from privilege fees paid by the orpim- ization awarded the franchise.' •Attorney Jcos Taylor, speaking on behalf of the Blytheville Coach Lines, .said that the present, holders .Of the bus franchise had "given adequate transportation -and service for the , past. 20 yeifs- «nd-.pointed • out : that tlfe frafT- chisc was not "something to bo bid on like Ihe contract for build- iiiE a new house." It would be better to pi-ant the franchise to an cstnb'ished line than to give it lo n "stinnsc and untried group," Mr. Taylor "said. "The gross Income plan ignores thc fact whether thc line is making money and may prevent thc line from adding new facilities," Mr. Taylor said.
