Arkansas' Oldest State Chartered Bank Plans Anniversary Festivity MALVERN. Arx., June 22. f/PJ- Arkansas' oldest state chartered bank will observe -its 61sl 'anniversary here Saturday. The Bank of Malvern was organ- 1/cii In 1883 by O.,M. Nilson and P. M. Smith, two Kansas residents who came to Arkansas seeking new frontiers. The bank now stands on its original site. The original building, a two story structure, was destroyed by fire in 1896. A one-story bulltting was reconstructed on th" Bite. The Arkansas Bank Commission said the Bank of Malyern Is the oldest state chartered bank In existence in Arkansas. Continued from Pagt 1 he sewer system at this time.. (Note: A city ordinance permits :he city to require all houses to hooked on to the sewer system. However, Oils has not been enforced became present facilities afe inadequate for curing for all >ersons seeking connections. If the new system were adopted and the sewers built, the city could enforce the ordinance and force a greater lumber of users thereby lowering :he Individual cost.) Systems Outlined Under the service charge system, persons now connected to the sewer system plus the Immediate new users would have to cirry the entire debt. The fee would have to be high enough to carry the load until others hooked on and the charge could be lowered. This would be done at the discretion of the Council. The property assessment method would be carried out by placing n tax on all property within the city limits of Blylhevllle. Persons not connected with the sewerage system and owning property would have to pay the charge anyway and thus probably would want to hook on to the disposal system as they would be billed for the sewer system whether or not they made use of it. However, installation of a sewer network would cause a rise in property values, it was brought out. If this method is to be carried out. It must be referred to i popular vote of the people. The trend in most cities has been toward the. sewer service charge system. Mr. Farmer wit). K*c«jnmrnd> Knforeed plan "Regardless of which method Is adopted." Mr. Farmer added, "I believe that a bold plan ol enforced usage will prove to be the best solution. It also was suggested that a combination of the two methods might prove satisfactory—half of the fund to he derived from a property tax and the other half to be taken from a sewer service charge. The final analysis is to be worked out when the program has crystal- led more thoroughly. Recapping the survey of Black nd Veatch, Mr. Fanner explained that the proposed course of action ha.s been mapped with an eye to sewage system improvement, elimination of health hazards and providing a disposal system which will keep pace with an expanding city. The proposed sewage treatment plant. Mr. Farmer explained, deals with a city of approximately 15,000 population. However, It was pointed out that perhaps only one-half of this number will be hooked or: to the system. The plant is capable of carrying an overload and Is readily expandable, he concluded! Mr. Farmer was accompanied by .1. M. Penny, [Slack and Veatch resident engineer now supervising a project in Caruthersville, Mo.
