The Dow Jones average of 30 industrial stocks was 'up 12.04 to 695.19 at 2:30 p.m.. an hour before the close of trading. Earlier in the day, the Dow average had been down nearly seven points. Advancing issues held a 7-5 margin over declines on the New York Stock Exchange. Analysts attributed the early session decline chiefly to investors who bought stocks at very low levels early in the week and pulling itself up from a 17-month downswing.

This was reported Thursday by Robert McConnell, who with Charles Achziger, is acting as a spokesman for residents ol the area easl of Greeley who are opposed to the lagoons being built at Site 7. Site 7 is north of the South Platte River south and east of the Webster Feed Lots. McConnell lives a half mile west of Websler Feed Lots on the Bth Street road while Achziger's area in a four-mile wide strip from the U. S. 85 bypass east to Kuner. "We have had a wonderful sign up," he reported. He also said the opponents at the presenl lime are putting placards out "in the area we are fighting for easl of Greeley," advising residenls of the area of the dale and place of the public hearing, which is to be held at the Courthouse at 3 p.m. Wednesday. "The thing we are fighting is that Greeley really shouldn'l have a lagoon," McConnell said. "It's going back to pre-historic times when it does Ihis. It might as well restore outhouses." "Another thing," McConnell said, "we believe if you- make a smell, vou should live with home, at the intersection of theiii. 8th Street road and the Kersey road, is only 800 feet from the site of the proposed lagoons. The opponents organized at a meeting held early this month at Kersey which was attended 3y about 130 persons. McConnell reported t h a t , since that time, the opponents have solicited a "war chest" "We feel we are getting imposed on east of town," he continued, observing Greeley appeared to be playing sort of a Major Hoople role, like raking up its lawn, then throwing what it has raked up into its neighbor's yard.
