He declared also that McMath aides were holding prpmlses of road construction for votes and that em- ployes were beiiiK told they better "vote right" to hold their jobs. I-aney promised that if he be- cl lines governor again, he'll see that the "eight tax laws" passed by the 1949 legislature are repealed. Prolonged applause greeted his pledge to re pen I a 1949 la\v which prohibits counting federal income tax payments as deductions in payment of state income tax returns. Prior to his administration there t were no restrictions. , McMath's non-political or only partly-political appearances next week include a speech at forms! ^^ppening of the Independence sav- 'fB^igs bond drive here on Monday; a "*%peec'*» to Uje, ArlfNisas Valley Cooperative at Ozaik Tuesday, at the Miss Arkansas contest on Wednesday and the Thursday night finals, interspersed; by a flying trip to McGehee to dedicate R .swimming pool, find at _ii rodeo at Springdale on Saturday.

And In a separate move. Senator Loflge (I?-Mas.s) sounded out .Senate .sentiment on the chances of ovcr- rWing administration opposition to his plan to tap S5.000.noo.ono of Marshall Plan recovery funds for pnr of the cost of re-arming wcslern Europe. The penally proposed against Britain would be In the form of al Amendment, to Ihe Economic Cooperation Administration (ECA) aci which sets the rules for Hie European recovery program. A rough draft of the plnn Is being passed around nninnR senator as the first step toward placing the proposal before the Senate Appro prliillons Committee. Cut In Half Til Us present form, the amend menl would cut Great Britain' Marshall Plan aid in half durlr the time Britain ."fails to partlcl pate in the Schuman Plan for poo! IHR western Europe's coal and steel Britain's share of Marshall Pla funds authorized by Congress I SCH5.000.000. The British Labor party's cxcci: live committee has shown a marke coolness toward the pool plar which was advanced by Forcig Minister Schuman of France. Prim Minister Altlce has said the labi government ts not now ready take part In Ihe pool, although It "fully prepared" to seek closer ccc nomlc integration of Europe. "We frankly want to put prtssu on Britain to Join the pool." one senator—who asked that he not be Identified by name—said. "If we lose In the appropriations committee we'll carry our tight to the Senate floor." Lodge's original plan was to earmark {100.000.000 of recovery funds for military purposes. It was rejected Monday by the Senate foreign relations and armed services committees. He Is considering revising nis original plan and offering It In a new amendment to the bill author- (Prevlously, Dr. T. T. Ross, state calth officer, and other officials nve severely criticized the city's wer situation as being a nuisance id hazard to the public health.) Of the $1,322,000 estimated total 3st, trunk sewer mains Including le treatment plant and elghl lift -ations (one of these would be a ooster pump station), would cost bout $U22,000. in addition, about 100.000 of lateral sewers will bs ceiled to cover the entire city, r. Farmer said. Sewage disposal by the propos- d network would be handled In lie following .manner: 1) Blylheville would be divided nlo benefit districts served by rtink sewer mains with each disl- Ict having a lift station lo boost lie sewerage along until It reaches lie treatment planb. 2) Residences and users of the ewcrnge system would be connected to the trunk system by means f a net of lateral sewers. Proj>osed site of the treatment plant Is a 20-acre plot located near Pcmiscot and Lumcrale Ba- 'ous northwest of Blythevllle. "This area was chosen because f its elevation, necessary (or the linctloning of a gravity treatment plant and also because we con- iidercd it to be the best land .ract located from one-quarter to >nc-lialf mile from the city limits," vlr. Farmer said. 'Hie State Board of Health also was consulted on this matter Mr. Farmer added. Financing I>lscusscd Discussing tile financial angles of -he sewage problem. Mr. Farmer suggested -two possible methods of paying for the proposed new system. 1) Users of the sewerage system would pay for the new scwerj through a sewer service charge. (Under this method, a sliding scale would be determined to fix a monthly fee. Collection of this fe« would be a major problem. Possibly it could be appended to the user'i water bill In which SnsUmce water service could be halted until the bill was paid.) 2) Property assessment (ThlJ mclhod would necessitate an added tax on property owners.) These suggested plans deal only with Ihe trunk line mains, lilt stations and the sewage treatment plant. Lateral sewers to be placed Improvement districts would conslilute another problem. It was pointed out that the cost or this $322.000 project would have lo be borne by Ihe city as a whole because the trunk mains serve the entire city as a pick-up network for the lateral sewers which serve individual users.

Consideration Due "Whether this burden is to be assumed by Blytheville properly owners or through sewer service charges Is the problem of the city administration and not of the engineering firm," Mr. Farmer pointed out. "It Is partially for that reason that this meeting was called We want the city administration and the citizens of Blytheville to have some lime to consider these matters before our [Inal report li made." "If the sewer service charge method Is adopted," Mr. Farmer said, "Blytheville residents must be encouraged to use the sewerage system. This Ls necessary because the service charge n-ould be distributed equitably among the users and the more persons using the system— the lower the cost would be. " He estimated that there are about 3.500 houses In Blythcvllle (business district not included). Of this number, about 1,800 to 1500 arc now adjacent to existing sewers. Approximately 1,500 are hooked on to S« SKWERS on P»»e 14
