All did not go smoothly, however, at the called meeting of the council In City Hall last night. One of the complainants withdrew from the crews cohld get to them. Mayor Jackson pointed' out that both the park drive paving and the street widening projects wil be done with city Jabor. The park paving also will begin as soon as the city's street crews can complete other work. During Ui« disscussioii at a called meeting- in City Hal: last night, the council considered these widening: improvements— from Fifth to Sisth on Ash Strftf, from Kailroad lo Fifth on Walnut Street and from Broadway (Fourth) to Sixth (F!ithw»y 81) on Chickasawlm Avenue. The Walker Park paviiiE project will include the concrete £trip from the Negro exhibit building to Kentucky Street to begin with ;\nd con. creting of the £«**•*•?'V{ <tfc* semi-circular drive connecting the Kentucky Street and Davis Street entrances if possible. Paving of park drives to alleviate dust.durlng periods of heav.v traffic is heavy now only during the Summer when the swicrning pool is open and ball games are held but also in early Fall during the Northeast Arkansas District Fair and the National Cotton Picking Contest. Bids On Truck Opened In other action last night, the council approved purchase of a one and one-half ton International truck to be used by the Sanitation Department. The truck, which will bring to five the number of trucks used bv the department, will be purchased from Delta Implements Co. The council decided to purchase the truck from Delta .

The truck will be equipped with "a hydraulic lift in 15 days, when the apparatus becomes available, he said.. The hydraulic lift converts the vehicle into a dump truck.

Laggins said he would testify as a witness for the city buo would take no other part in a suit. Three other complainants present last night, however, Indicated that they would consent to making themselves plaintiffs and verify the.' complaint. To Draw Up Complaint Next step in the proceedings is drawing up of a formal complaint and signing or it by city officials and the protesting residents. According to the resolution, drawn | up by City Attorney Percy A. I Wright, the action will be lakuu oy the city and tho complaining residents and i the,wst5.oi..*uteriiig into ' Paid by ni;lit will . i tiffs! The' resolution, which culminated a year-long series of complains, stated that when the City Counci'. issued Mr. Hughes a building permit, lie declared in his application that no noise or dust would ensue from t):e plant's operations. Thu resolution further stated that the council later notified Mr. Hughes of complaints of noise and dust buz that he ignored the notice. Four of the complainants who were present last night—Mr. Lag- Bins, W. F. MeDariiel, Lay Welch and Doyle Henciersoii—empl]asi7,-^il that their group was only seeking relief from ths alleged nuisances and was not attempting to shu- down operations of the Hughes plant. They agreed that they did IIOL want to hurt Mr. Hughes' business but only wanted Ihe noise and dust eliminated. In answer to a question by M^Loggins, City AUoiney pointed out that the complainants were a .siuelc group effected by the alleged nuisances and that the is- sne was in effect a "private fight." This affirmed the city's sttnul that since the complaint was 1101 citywide, the council could not approve filing of ihe suit without the pro- tc-stors as party plaintirfs. To Join City in Suit Mayor E. R. Jackson said later that tne city alone had no bitsis for j legal proceedings. Mr. Logins, how- | ever, declared that it was up to tlie city to m.ikc Mr. Hughes live up to tile stateu.cnls made when hu sought the permit. If the city does not, he asserted, the complainants can sue the city. that Ihe Republicans would pick candidate friendly to Ills idea of foreign policy, he'd have no hesitation In taking himself all the way out of the convention scene right now.
