VITTON A preliminary study of the problems Involved In the construction of a sewage disposal,plant so that North Adam! may be ready to em bark upon such a project without delay If it receives a sufficiently large share of the federal 13,300,000,000 public works fund, was authorized by the city council last evening. That body gave Its authorization at a special meeting by adopting unanimously a supplementary budget appropriating $1,000 for the retention of a consulting engineer who will make the study. The mayor asked the $1,000 appropriation after concluding with a group of advisers whom he had called In, that the construction of a sewage disposal plant would be the most Important of several permanent construction projects the city might .undertake If It received from the federal fund the sum which has been mentioned to local officials as the city's probable share. The same group Is to meet with the mayor again to determine what projects should be placed next on the list in case the federal grant to North Attains exceeds the sum, now roughly estimated at $150,000 which the sewage disposal plant would cost. Chairman Frank A Bond of the council's finance committee, one of those with whom the mayor has consulted during, the past week, said that the recent enactment of the federal public works measure, together with the recent renewal of the state health department's rec-, ommcndallons relative to sewage disposal in this city had Impelled the mayor to consider the Idea of undertaking construction of a sewage disposal plant. It had seemed de- slrnblc, he went on, to have a competent engineering firm make a study of the problems presented here and Indicate the correct solution, and consequently the $1,000 appropriation to pay for such a survey was asked. Ho went on to say that It was the local understanding that the city might be able to draw upon the federal public works fund for on outright grant amounting to 30 per cent of the cost of any approved project It might undertake, and to borrow 70 per cent of the balance on long- term bonds at an Interest rate not exceeding 314 per cent. If this understanding Is correct, he said, It means that funds are. now to be available for work which has heretofore seemed more expensive than 10 city could afford, creating em- ers, he said, the -department would i consider permitting the establish ment of a temporary outlet In th rlvervfor the proposed new drey lock sewer, with the proviso tha this arrangement would be made fo a period not to exceed two 1 years. In other words. Mr. Bonn polnte out, It has become practically 1m possible for Uio city to enlarge its sewer system so .as to serve neigh borhoods now without domestic serv ice unless and until It solves th problem of sewage disposal by build Ing a filtration plant. The finance committee, he said, is fully In a coon with the mayor's proposal that $1,000 be appropriated for a study of such a project. Councilman William 'H. Chapln recalling that the state health de partment had once proposed tha North Adams, Adams and Williams town Jointly build a sewage dlsposa plant, and holding that the erection of a separate plant by the city o North Adams would not avail thl city a great deal If Adams sewage continued to be poured Into the river upstream from North Adams, asked what possibilities there were that the plan for Joint action might be revived. Mr. Bond said he understood It had been calculated that it would be cheaper-for each of the three communities to build Its own. dlsposa plant than to build a Joint plant In Willlamstown with trunk sewers running several' miles uhdergrounc from Adams and this city to it, but he said that- that was one of the points which would be definitely settled by t)»e proposed preliminary sur- th, pll oyment lor local people and producing a badly needed public 1m- jrovement. To emphasize the need ol such ft development, Mr. Bond read, a letter from Dr. George H. Blgelow, head of the state department of public lealth which has been received by •he city within the past few days n response to a request that it be wrmitted to build a new sewer tb erve the Greylock sections of the Ity,' that sewer to have Its outlet as other sewers do, in the Hoosac river, Dr. Blgelow's letter recalled hat the same project had been dls- ipproved by his department in 1925 because it would mean more serious pollution' of the river and that again n 1931 It was disapproved unless he city would extend all Its existing sewers so that their outlet would be beyond the city limits. If the city vey. . Dr. M. M. Brown urged the council to grant'the appropriation, saying that It was a move In the right direction to undertake R study of this mpbrtant problem, and the unanimous vote was taken after Councilman Fejcon Bowcn had, asked what engineering flrm the city would engage and Mr. Bond had replied that that was up to the mayor or the administrative, officers to whom he might delegate the task. The adoption of the $1.000 supplementary budget leaves the city with an appropriating capacity of only $4,251.14 for the remaining five .and a half months of the current fiscal year under the existing tax limit.

Sixty Years of Knowing How '* j 1 ™ , : Bostonians for Men $5.00 a pair FOR SPORT OR DRESS Boston,'June 20.—The House rules committee gave a hearing yesterday to the petition of Richard R. .Flynn, commissioner of state aid and pen- ions, on a bill to provide for enforcement of'payment'.'of soldiers' relief ly municipalities in certain cases. The j>roposed act arises from a Berkshire county case, where the applicant for soldiers' relief, living In I. •forth'Adams, and receiving pay- j ments'from that city, was decided iy Commissioner Flynrt to have a • domicile In Willlamstown. Willlamstown selectmen refused to I accept this decision, maintaining j •nan's name was on the Chester hon- r roll and therefore contending Chestef 1 to be his domicile. The mater was taken to the supreme court tirough Uie attorney-general's de- artmnnt where a referee decided hat Commissioner Flynn's decision s to domicile was correct, but rec- mmended the petition for writ of mandamus against Wllliamstown be Ismlssed, as the attorney-general's epartment lacked Jurisdiction un-1 er the law.
