Local •t- Comic* •I- Clattified The Newspaper For The Uonw Member Associated Press MONDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1955 Second Section Council Acts To Sell Flood Bond Issue §000,000 Proposal Also Includes Possibility Of £ Special Assessment , '^f The Mayor and Council today approved an ordinance calling for the sale of $600,000 in flood control bonds and reserved the right to establish a flood district to make special assessments for benefits derived from the project.- It was emphasized, however, that the flood district and special assessment clause is not mandatory. Action can be taken on the provision, 'if heeded, anytime within five years after the date of passage of the ordinance today. 'The ordinance was passed under provisions of constitutional home rule, which states'that if no'protest petition is f' 1 "'! within 40 days, the ordinance -becomes effective. Bends are expected to be put up for sale in 50'days. Asks .About District Edward .Ewaid, chairman of the civic- ;affai.rs committee of the Chamber of Commerce, appeared to ask council what it has in mind as a flood control-district. , • -• Mayor Roy W. Eves explained that, the special assessment : Js a reseryatipn- and does^not mean it will be. placed in effect. This would be.voted On separately,, he said, adding that council has not agreed on-the subject. " • • • ' Publicity was given to the possibility of including the.flood district proviso in the ordinance, he said, in.,order that council could sample public opinion. Council has not determined -how the flood district •would be ; laid out v but. it probably would be on the basis of damages . incurred in previous floods, Eves said. • . ' • ' Charles Z. Heskett, former city solicitor, said he had appeared because rumor had it some. assessments would be made today. How- eve'r/'he said, since that was not so,-he believed council acted.right- fully in reserving the right to do so later. • Would Apply To AH .Ewald' asked if the same provision had been made in other flood control issues. Council-said no, but this'would apply-to all of .them. City Attorney- Thomas B. Finan said today's' action is not without precedent. In 1927, an assessment was made for West Side and later another for Wills Creek. These were based on a certain percentage of- the assessable basis and A not on front footage, he added. . . *?' • The problem in this instance, Finan continued;'is 'that If couricll'did not reserve the right to special as* scssments now, it could not do so later. He, too, emphasized that the move is not mandatory and can be considered later. ^ Can't Delay Ordinance Ewald wanted to know if. the ordinance could be delayed. Finan said council already had held it over a week, and that the money will be needed soon after the first o( the year. The contractor is starting work on the Market Street •bridge and he will need money. Finan pointed out the ordinance must lay on the table 40 days under the home rule setup. Another issue, .$150,000 for additions and improvements to the Memorial Hospital Nurses Home was delayed until next week since it does not come under home rule but was authorized under an enabling acl by the legislature. Finan said, however, that council will sell both the flood and hospital bond issues at the same time. 12 County Men To Be Inducted Seven local residents and five Frostburg area men will leaye Thursday for induction into the armed forces at.Fairmont.

Sacramento, last weekend 'in Caribbean, died trying -to save the' life. of. a buddy: The fact that Howsare died a hero's dealh was pieced together from fragmentary information in Navy . dispatches. concerning his case. . . The 22-year-old Bedford Valley metalsmilh was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Howsare. The Navy, in a brief lelegram to Howsare's'parenls, at first revealed only that he had drowned while on liberty,on the-British-island of St: "Kits," in- the Leeward -Island group in the Caribbean sea. Later the commanding officer of the • US Naval Reserve Training Center in Alloona revealed that he had received a.'further dispatch from the Navy-in-which it was stated that. Howsare drowned while trying to.rescue a shipmate who had fallen overboard from a small'boat while the two were on liberty from their ship, the USS Donner. •Full details.were still unavailable pending receipt of a letter from the Donner's commanding officer. But it was learned that Howsare struck his.head on some object—probably • the gunwhale of the boat—as he . dived to the aid of his buddy in the waler, He sustained a deep gash or, Ihe back of his. head and an aulopsy lisled the cause of death as drowning. The Navy's early dispatches did not indicate whether or not that Howsare's shipmate was saved. The Howsare family resides on a farm two and a half miles north of the Maryland state line.
