City Council Should Clarify Water Company Price Tag Tuesday, citizens of Blytheville will turn their attention (we hope) to what is perhaps the most important problem the city has ever faced: to buy or not to buy the Blytheville Water Co. Negotiated price to complete the transaction has been set at If 1,300, 000. Ability of tha average voter to know if that is too high or too low or just right is questionable. Here, we think, the City Council Finance Committee should shed a little light on the subject and explain just how they arrived at the price. Originally, the city turned its attention to acquisition of the Water Company as a means of financing the gigantic (estimated cost: from ?1 million to $l'/2 million) sewer construction project. It is the opinion of the City Council that this project can be brought about only with a source of revenue comparable to that of the Water Company. At that, as we understand it. Blytheville won't have the sewage carrying and disposal systems it needs for some time. Construction on part of it couldn't start for a year, it has been estimated. After some 560,000 of Water Company profits are set aside each year for the payments on (be $1,300,000 loan on it. remainder of profits would go toward retirement of sewer bonds. But some charge for sewer service, in the event the new system is built, is also anticipated. Important things to consider in casting your vote, therefore, are the twin facts that even with acquisition of the Blytheville Water Company, a brand new sewer system won't leap into existence and such new sewer services won't be free, hut that the city fathers say it's the first step down the road toward improved sewers. West Must Prove Red Riots Won't Stall Defense Efforts Riot? in Paris and Berlin, interruptions of normal traffic between east and west zones, efforts to seal off the Soviet sector of the German capita], these all make a familiar pattern. They represent the standard Russian response to defeat. The defeat, of course, was two-fold: the signing of the German peace agreement with the United States, Britain and France, and the conclusion of the six-nation European army pact, to in- include German units. The Soviet purpose in stirring riot, disrupting commerce and otherwise upsetting the normal routines of Western Europe's life is plain. The Kremlin seeks to arouse fear in the hearts of or- dinary Germans, Frenchmen and Briton*, to the end that they will petition their lawmakers in wjffici«nt force and numbers to block th« ratification of the pcsce pact and six-nation defense agre*- m«nt. If enough Western Europeans can b« convinced that theae actords might »pe)I war, the for-looking statesmen In tha participating countries will be hard- pressed to win the necessary backing in their parliaments. Even without a new campaign of fear, the pacts free extreme obstacle* in Bonn, Paris and London. The West's immediate task, of course, is to show the Russians that riots and other disruptions will not successfully break the upward stride of th« European defense effort. Obviously we can permit no effective interruption of our progress toward security for the free world. Secondly, we must counter the Russians' fear campaign by trying to convince the average European that the pending pence and defense agreements mean less, not more chance of war. All the information our experts can gather indicates the Russians do not • want war in the months, nnd perhaps years just ahead. These new gestures of violence are rated as bluffs. The fact is the Russians do not enjoy a sufficient measure of military and economic strength to warrant their taking the risk of war. Because we gauge the Russians unprepared for war does not mean, however, that we ourselves should therefore relax. It is the very growth of our defenses, including development of the six-nation army and the German peace pact, that can keep the Russians steadily off balance. That is where we have them now, and that is why they are screaming snd flailing about. For if their fear campaign should work, our defense effort would be seriously harmed. They might thereby gain advantage over us, and one day tliat margin might convince them that war had become a safe adventure for them. Our job is to see to it that the Russians never reach the point where they believe they can safely undertake conquest of the free world. Readers' Views To the Editor: The City councH asks the voters to approve ft bond Issue lor Jl,300 000 to buy the water system In Blytheville. They claim thnt there will b« enough profit out of It to pay for H sewer system. The ordinance printed in your paper cer- tnlnly provides that (here't going to be any cut In water rates In Illytbeville during the next 30 years. But It certainly makes provision for Increasing the water rates iti the future. In fact. It requires that the rales will be increased If there isn't enough money coming in to pay for the bonds lhat. the City will be bound 'x> pay for. If the City operates the water system as good as they are now operating the garbage collection, I wonder whether there will be anything at aJl left over for paying for a sewer system. If the City Is so good at operating at a profit, why do they have to charge a garbage collection tax? Also. I wonder how much the city will have to charge water user* for a water connection if they own the water system. I hear thai many city- owned systems make a connection charge to all ' new water users. If other cities can maXe a charge like that, how are we to keep the Council here from charging us for new connections? It looks like there Li a Sot about this sewer system and water system deal that hasn't been said. Mr. and Mrs. T. M. Phillips SO THEY SAY Love Is Hard to Understand Sometimes, Isn't It?

Sfnator McCarran's Internal Security Committee's Investigations nnd the examination of witnesses brought before It have constantly challenged the right to freedom of opinion and freedom of speech. TO THE EXTENT of these various activities have been directed at combatting communism and Communist propaganda, they have been generally commended. Senator McCarran's antagonism to freedom of speech and freedom of the press goes deeper than this, however, as revealed by hts campaigns against publications that have been of him In hts own state of Nevada. H. M, Greenspun, publisher of the Ln.«. Vrpns (Nev.> Sun, has been in Washington and New York recently, frankly and openly trying to raise money to carry on his fight against \vhat hr says is a McCarran-ordered boycott of resort advertising In his newspaper. Thls latter IE what happened in the case of a Reno sheet, the Nevada Labor News. Its publisher, Denver Dickerson, started out on a campaign of criticism of the Mc- Caran political machine operations. Pressure was brought to bear on thp papers advertisers, including trip casinos, to withdraw their support. Today the paper Is no. longer McCarran and the ads critical of areb nek. Hank Greenspim's story of opposition to McCarrEin is much more bizarre than this. He was born and brought np in New Haven, Conn.. pnd wont to law school In New York. HP is in his middle 30's.

When they got to the edge of to^.ii, Remmer remarked at once, "This place is too small to support a track." Nevertheless he sold stock n the venture, until some past income tax troubles caught up with lim. But Greenspun liked Las Vegas, ,ts warm sun and dry air. He call- his wife in New York and told jr to come on out. He got a job first as press agent for a hotel. Then he started a Las Vegas magazine for tourists. A SHORT time before, the Typographical union hart pulled a strike on the Las Vegas Re view-Journal, the established and then the on*y paper in town. Unable to win the strike, the union started a paper ol it* own in opposition. The Sun was a losing proposition right from the start. After it hac shown a deficit for some months running, Greenspun went to Typo Union headquarters In Indianapolis anri offered to take the paper of: its hands. He had no money, but the union rook his notes. Greenspun says he was doing aV right till he decided to take after Senator McCarran as the too-powerful boss of the state.

South ruffed the ace of diamonds and noted the fall of the eight of diamonds from the West hand. Obviously. or so South thought. West had the queen of diamonds. And It looked as though it was about to drop. If the trumps happened to be 2-2, South reasoned, he could lead a trump to dummy, cash the king of diamonds and win the rest of the tricks If. the queen of diamonds dropped. He would be giving up the neart ruff by drawing a second round of trumps, but he would have chance for his contract in exchange. , , The result was sad and unexpected.
