West Calcasieu Association of Commerce Thursday. He listed several improvements underway in the area and touched briefly on what he termed the "science fiction" portion of the telephone industry. The chief improvements locally are the new central office in Maplewood which will cost approximately $l-million and the installation of the Centrux system in the industrial complex in West Calcasieu. Essentially a central office alt their own is the Centrux installation at the Cities Service plants. Outside calls can be dialed directly into the plants instead of going through an operator. The new system goes into operation Saturday. Included in the project is Southern Bell's first installation of touch tone or "pushbutton" dialing. Numbers are punched, similar to those on an adding machine, instead of dialed. Newman said pushbutton dialing will be available to anyone who desires it within two years. The innovation cuts down dialing errors, he said. During the question and answer session, Newman was asked when Sulphur would get the direct dialing system. He said he has requested funds for the project which would cost some $300,000 but he docs not know when it will be approved.

Stephens Tells Of Position In Groh Firing Clyde Stephens, new president of the Lake Charles dock board, spoke out Friday against the impression that he was "solely responsible" for the decision that, the contract of Port Director John It. Groh will not be renewed when it expires July in. Stephens said "the dock board is composed of five members and no one man can dismiss anyone from any position." He said the decision not to renew Groh's contract was "the unanimous action of the four board members present" at the meeting at which he was elected president. He said he wished to emphasize that his election and the Groh contract matter were coincidental. "If the papers will only print exactly what takes place," Stephens said Friday, "and place the responsibility of the dock board on the entire membership, then no one will be misunderstood." Stephens also said that "it is my intention, as president of the dock board, to have a meeting of all members early next week." He did not fix the day and hour in his statement Friday. The announcement of Groh's impending dismissal was made after a closed meeting of the | board June 10, the first attend; ed by Stephens after new Louisi iana Gov. John J. McKeithen appointed Stephens and Joe Barbour to the board. Both were McKeithen campaign leaders. Barbour was not present at the meeting. Members present and announced as approving the decision not to renew Groh's contract were Stephens; Pat H. Chaffin, who, it was announced, stepped down as president and asked the board to elect Stephens; T. K. Stitzlein and L. D. Mann.
