THE MALVERN LEADER Aft AUrttttftft ftlWfi? APllft c MALVERN, MILLS COTJWtt, IOWA, THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 1*84 so.. Prepare to Bring la New Oblate E«i«in«ntft Needed Undj Co*t PetefBiifted For tfte last time before an election Malvern's toirft council trudged njs the stairs 4o IB* dimly lighted hall-way flows which lie* Mayor fi. 1. Whitfield'8 office. there, surrounded by the row* of ealr-bonnd volume* which constitute the toayor'B law library, the councilors deliberated on plans for' bringing ifi their new well. At the meeting three steps were taken which were necessary before the well could be osed: 1) Ait agreement wad signed with Thorpe Bros. Well company of Be* Moines which stipulated that, should the council desire to purchase the two wells contemplated, it could do so at any time at a cost of $2466 each, No in* tention, however, has the council of making this purchase at the present time, but will purchase water from Thorpe's instead at 6c per 1000 gallons. 2) Approved leases with two owners of the land across which mains must be laid and the Well* and equipment constructed. These were with Mrs. Frank Bacon for perpetual right of way for a sum of $26 and with J. N. Bummers, owner of the land on which wells and equipment will be. This pro* rides that the town shall furnish Mr. and Mrs. Bummers with 300,000 gallons of water at the main annually, with the option of purchasing more for own use at lowest price then available to consumers, for the privilege granted. These privileges included the right to build, construct and dig wells, pumping stations, alroa- tors, filtering plants, reservoirs, etc., and easements for water mains,, electric, lines, telephone lines and a roadway to the highway. This agreement was considered advantageous as it would figure much less than the rental of the present pump station ground, and more privileges and area were included. 3) Final step was the sending , iron, pipe TOWN OFFICES they would have a reliable, sufficient supply-of good water, fully approved by the state board of health, in a short time. Well specifications called for hole's from 30 to 85 feet in depth with, temporary curb of not less than 60 inches in diameter at the surface. A permanent casing of 12 inches in diameter would line the shaft with strainer at the bottom measuring 11H inched outside diameter and 12 feet in length. Side boles of each well should be pot Less than 6 inches in diameter, • These wells will use a gravel base which is expected .to strain away the quicksand which seems to affect most wells ia.that section, Tbe"two wells will have a guaranteed capacity of 100,000 gallons of water daily, The average consumption of the'town at the present time is about 35,000 gallons per day, In addition to tbe consideration of their water problems, the council allotted Insurance of the Community buUdJng to .the aev* erai insurance agents and agencies in Malvern. Before the coun* ell were C, 1, Eacrett and j. W, MeNulty on matters, of private business.

Beef Men Select Wearin as State Meeting Delegate Outline Reduction Program at Meeting Here Monday Afternoon Outline* for a fair program of relief for beef producer* were formulated here Monday afternoon when beef feeder* and breeder* from all over Milt* county met in the Malvern Com munlty building. The meeting had been called by J. F, Wearin, chairman of the county corn-hog committee. Intense interest in the discussion was shown by alt attending a* this group has been outside the attentions of tho federal relief program thus far. After much deliberation tho following, plan was suggested in the form of resolutions passed by the meeting: 1) That cattle be Included in AAA as a basic commodity. 2) A reduction program on the following points be carried out: a) that bonus payments be made to cooperators; and b) that reduction constitute and equal percentage of reduction in (1) number of cattle produced or fed and (2) pounds of weight or tonnage produced; c) that a five-year pe rlod be used as a basts tor determining reduction data, and,, that of s calf; or feed > lot producer or finisher, The group also went on record as favoring a provision requiring that all meat used in rations for the army, navy, hospitals, prisons and other organizations fed by the government shall be produced in the United States and shall Include a fair proportion of good grade meat produced in this country. J. F, Wearin was elected a* o delegate to the state meeting in Des Moines Wednesday at which a state organization and plan will bo made. Wilbur Hubbard, state corn- hog field man, was at the meet- Ing and gave suggestions to the producers. Discussion was lively throughout and Hubbard declared that he had obtained many valuable suggestions from tbe men. Best of these was one by Rol- lln Buffiugton who suggested that a tonnage basis be used for reduction among feeders and finishers but that both tonnage and number of head be used for western range producers. Tbis, he suggested, would be more fair for both groups than to have both under the same regulations. Mr. Hubbard advised the delegate to present a copy of this plan at the Des Moines meeting. The group did not accept tbe plan made at a recent Shenandoah meeting by which tbe government was asked to refund to feeders some 23c per bushel for corn fed to cattle since the corn loans had been available. However, several expressed apprecia-* tlpu for the work done by tbe beef producers association whicb bas been working on this problem for some time.
