"I really didn't expect it to be in there. I'm still trying to find out the purpose of having two items. We've already got a law to prohibit mixed drinks so it looks to me like that item is not necessary."

He said this raised the threat of an agreement in Paris that would be unfavorable to South Vietnam and has "aroused great anxiety among.the South Vietnamese people." Thieu sent an observer delegation to Paris despite opposition from Ky and other politicians and army leaders who see only a military solution. Thieu, who was born a Buddhist and became a Catholic, has much among the South Vietnamese people, both Buddhist and Catholic, who display war weariness. Ky, who comes from a Buddhist family in North Vietnam, has strong backing from nearly a million refugees from North Vietnam—mainly Roman Catholics—whose only hope of returning to their homes is a collapse of the Communist regime in Hanoi. Huong, 67, a former schoolmaster, was premier for three months until he was removed by a military coup in January 1965. He ran fourth in the presidential election last September and is held in high regard by many high officials in the U.S. Embassy.

"First," Little said laughing, "there must have been at least two city employes who didn't get raises, because I was one of them." Growing serious, the mayor said, "The decision as to which workers got raises.and which ones didn't was made jointly by me and the heads of the various city departments after we conferred. "During the conference, the all-around performance as well as initiative and longevity of those eligible for a raise was considered," Little added. "Those persons whom we considered deserving 'of a raise based on these factors, received a raise, and those who didn't come up to standard did not get one. .

DOT .'{-Why doesn't the city of Blytheville have at least one bus to . accommodate . people who don't 'drive to get downtown to work or to pay bills?" -*- G A City. '•: "1 have been working on an idea to purchase a bus with city funds for just such a purpose," Little re'plied. "I believe it should be the responsibility-of the city government to provide transportation of this type and if my plan is accepted by the city council and the money appropriated, then perhaps we will have at least one bus running by the end of the year," Little said. "Ever since the last bus company quit operating, the city has hoped that another company would take over the fran- cise to operate here, but speak- •ing realistically, I don't see how a private bus line could operate within the city limits and realize a profit, because not enough people will patronize the line. "My proposal," Little continued, "would be for the city to lease one small bus, say one which can carry 12 or 18 passengers, and run it on a sched- my : knowledge," Little replied, "but it was my understanding that the law applying to dogs .was equally applicable to cats." (In a recent city council meeting this assumption by the mayor seemed to be substantiated by Police Chief George Ford's monthly report, which stated that several cats, as well as stray dogs had been picked up by the Blytheville dogcatcher.) "-.... . "Actually," Little continued, "we have received more complaints concerning squirrels than we have cats." "It has been brought to my attention that when f o o d is scarce, the squirrels are eating out of garbage cans, creating a possible health hazard. "In addition, they are also destructive of property and are becoming a general nuisance. "I hope to contact the state game and fish commission soon and ask them to come to Blytheville to trap some of these squirrels and move them out of town, before we' have a real problem on our bands like a rabies epidemic," Little said.

If after we had tried out this system for about a year and it proved feasible, then the city might lease a second bus, with .the stipulation that the lease price of each bus would go toward the out-right purchase of both eventually," Little added. "The cities of Atlanta, Ga., and Washington, D. C., have bus lines of this type using the smaller economically-run buses and if we did follow through on this proposal, I would hope that Blytheville by subsidizing only one or two buses could attract enough passengers to break even. • "Why doesn't the city have a law forcing people to pay for the paving of the streets bordering their property?" — Anonymous, City. Mayor Little stated that, "I know of no city with an ordinance of this type, and.I am not even sure if it would be legal for Blytheville to have such an ordinance. "The reason so many of the streets within the city limits are not paved now is because ;hese areas were annexed Into the city before a subdivision ordinance was adopted requiring any annexed areas to have paved streets," Little said. "Furthermore, I, personally think that the streets should not be just the responsibility of the property owner, because everyone using the streets has that responsibility.

Want Good Machine Work Want Good Engineering Want Honest Advice COME TO — BARKSDAIE "=».£• 325 South Broadway PO 2-2911 THIS IS THE WORK OF GOD In dealing with God the paramount importance of believing is made clear by an incident that happened during the earthly ministry of the Lord Jesus. He had just fed five thousand people out of a food stock of five biscuits and two sardines (John 6:9). It was a demonstration of what will be possible and can be expected when He as King governs the earth (Psa. 145:15,16), and the multitude was so impressed that they planned to take Him by force and make Him a king. This of course would have put Him in direct conflict with the Roman Empire, and the Lord wanted no part of this. He did not enter into the political conflict of His day. So He left the crowd and went into a mountain alone. In the-evening His disciples went down to the sea and took a ship sailing toward Capernaum. The Lord joined them later by walking on the sea and together they arrived at their destination. When the people saw that He was gone, they also found passage and came to Capernaum seeking Him. Upon finding Him they began io question Him as to how and when He got there, probably wondering whether or not they had missed any meals. This led Him to charge them with seeking after Him not because they were interested in Him, but because they were looking for another free meal. He then exhorted them not to work so hard for that food that did not last, but labor for that food that would continue on into eternal life, declaring that this is the food that He would give them, He being the one who bore the stamp of God the Father. This led them to ask Him a simple and direct question, "What shall we do that we might work the works of God?" (John 6:28). We today can be glad that they.asked this question, since the reply brought forth one of the most explicit truths to be found in the Bible. Jiui! answered «nd said unto them, This is the work of God that ye Believe on Him whom He hath sent. John 6:29. To better understand the force of these words, let us consider as an example the fact that while there are many who can be cal'led "sons of God", there is One alone who stands above all and is called ,"the Son' of God." Likewise while there is much that can be done that can rightfully be called "the works of God", there-is one work that stands alone and this was called by Jesus. Christ "the work of God." This one work is the supreme work of all, that we believe'on the One whom God has' sent, concerning Whom He has spoken, of Whom He has given us a record. If we have not done this work, then all other works become meaningless, They become human service, but cannot be uNed-divine service. . • . . • • . . There is one divine work upon which all other works must be built. Other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Chrisr (1 Cor. 3:11). In order to produce believers and to bring men to i place where they would stand as'believers in the Lord Jesus Christ was ths purpose behind God inspiring John to write his gospel. Ho tells us: "But thes;i are written that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life throush His name." John 20:31. Otis Q.
