Debt SeMlerncnt Arranged Throughout the period of the re- 'ceivershtp the board of commissioners of the district, which now consists of B. A. Lynch and V. G. Holland of Blytheville and J. H. Grain of Wilson, has had trie cooperation of Mr. Scott in-negotiations looking loward a settlement of the district's debt. A final agreement with the protective com-- representing the bondholders was reached last summer and when Us terms are carried out. ^irobaVily before the -end of the month, the district's debt will be reduced by more than 50 per cent. Under the agreement the bondholders will receive 52 Vj cents on the dollar on the face value of ttieir bonds. Delinquent interest, amounting to more than $1,000,000, will be cancelled. Payment will be"~made with the proceeds of-a S 1,663.500 .loan from, the: JRij.con- struction Finance Corporation, ;re j lease of which is expected at any time, and $367,975 in cash now on = hand in the district's treasury. More than 90 per cent of the bonds are now In the hands of the protective committee at St. Louis, ready to be turned in as soon as the R. P. C. loan is released. When the debt settlement is effected the district will have remaining in its treasury a substantial sum for maintenance work. Settlement of the debt will be followed, as soon as the necessary legal formalities can be met, by discharge of Mr. Scott as receiver. The district may continue for some time in the hands of the federal court, with the commissioners as receivers, but such an arrangement, if resorted to at all, .will be only temporary. For all practical purposes settlement of the debt will_ leave the district in a position to" stand upon ils own financial feet and to fulfill its inlended functions without the necessity of imposing undue burdens upon its taxpayers "Gee, I'd'be thrilled to (late such a famous man, Fanny."
