A Primary Problem In DuPage County; Engineer Offers These Recommendations By Bud Booth If Du Page county is able to establish and run its own garbage disposal cystem by the landfill method, the amount of preparation and work involved will be very extensive. This was made clear in a report recently released by C. W. Klassen, chief sanitary engineer for the state health department's division of environmental health Five Are Named In $30,000 Dram Suit A Westmont tavern operator, Clara Metzger, and four others were named defendants this week in the $30,000 Dram Shop suit filed with Robert C.

Friednch. Naperville city attorney, chairman; President Martin W. Kgger- ding, Addison; Mayor William A. Gannon, Wheaton; President Philip A. Ganzhorn, Glen Ellyn, and Theodore M. Wardvvell, Hmsdale village manager. Actual compaction tests, to determine the actual garbage and refuse measurements per pound should be made by using an adequate quantity of representative garbage and refuse. Compaction usually decreases the original volume by about 20 to 35 per cent, Figuring that the average person's garbage is about two or three pounds daily, one ton of garbage and refuse would fill about one or two cubic yards when compacted. IN PICKING ACCESS roads to any landfill project the length of the haul is very important, according to Klas'sen, Since long hauls are expensive, because of time lost and vehicle operation, the costs should be computed before selecting the site of the dump. The access roads should be free of lieavy traffic iE possible, capable of withstanding the weights of the garbage trucks in all kinds of weather, and equipped with special safety measures for any existing road hazards. Underground pollution is extremely important at, landfills, because of the health factor involved. The proposed garbage disposal plots should not be located on rock strata without a complete study of the possible hazards involved. In Illinois, limestone strata often have solution channels of crevices to convey pollution. IF STUDIES REVEAL the presence of limestone, a minimum of 30 feet of clay till should be kept between the rock and the garbage or refuse. Drift wells should be no nearer than 500 feet to any fill unless there is no subsurface seepage. Surface drainage must keep runoff to and into the fill at n minimum and prevent puddles and ponds from forming adjacent to or on the landfill. Garbage and refuse should (Continued on page 3) Bensenville Boys' Southern Trip Ends Abruptly Three Bensenvllle area youths' trip through the south tncled ab- luptly last week when they were returned home by police to answer charges of "attempted bur- glaiy The boys are scheduled to appear before Bensenville Police Magistrate John H.

Lady Taxicab Operator Piles Injunction Against Village Of Westmont Laura Strauley, Westmont cab company owner, has filed an injunction against that village to compel the issuing of a license to permit her to operate two taxis. The injunction also asks for a court order to prevent the molesting of her cab drivers. She reports that she applied for a license some time ago, but that it was turned down by the village council's license committee. The Westmont license ordinance should be declared void, she says, since it is special legislation protecting favored cab operators. Annual Town Meeting Set For Tuesday The annual Addison nnd Bloomingdale town (township) meetings are scheduled in 'the villages of Addison and Bloomingdale next Tuesday, April 3, The Addison session will be at a new time, 8 p. m while the meeting m Bloomingdale will be at the customary 2 p. m. THE MAIN PURPOSE of the meetings is to pass the yearly township budgets and levies, but other matters pertaining to the township often enter into discussions. This was the case last year in Addison. A large group of irate citizens turned out at the meeting and expressed their extreme disapproval over the condition of the township roads. MUCH OF THE criticism was directed at Road Commissioner Fied Geils, rural rte., Lombard. He is not a candidate election next week. for re- Addison Home Gutted, Neighbors Come To Aid Of Family Of 4 Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Wolwer- ton, Diversey blvd., east of Addison, and their two children, w;ere left homeless Saturday night when their newly acquired shell home was gutted by flames. All of their clothes and furnishings were lost and damage was set at over $5,000 Addison Rural firemen battled the blaze for over 90 minute after one of the children used a neighbor's phone to call in the alarm at 8:40 p. m It's reported that the fire started in a closet. The Wolwertons are now living in Chicago with friends, but immediately after the fire surrounding neighbors came to their aid with clothing, food and shelter. Soil Conservation Program Sign Up Ends Tomorrow DuPage farmers who expect to take part in this year's Agricultural Conservation program, but wjio have yet to make their intentions known officially, had better hurry up, reports Michael F. Lies, chairman of the county PMA committee. The deadline for signing up at Lies' headquarters in the Wheaton post office is tomorrow, Saturday, March 31. Under the ACP farmers are offered incentive payments to encourage and assist them in following approved conservation methods. Special aid is being offered this year for the construction of sod waterways and the establishment or improvement of pastures. "In view of the emphasis now being placed on continued high production," says Lies, "the need for increased soil conservation work is greater than ever before. It is our sincere hope that all the farmers will sign up to take part in this program. Remember the deadline is tomorrow, Saturday, March 31." John J. Kelly, Elmhurst, and Fred W. "Kebbie" Koebbeman, Bensenville, are expected to steal most of the spotlight in Tuesday's Addison township election when they battle it out for the supervisor's post. INCUMBENT KELLY, WHO'S been supervisor for 20 years and head of the county board for two thirds that time, is expected to pull a substantial vote in all sections of the township, it's reported. He heads the Republican party slate. Koebbeman, a Bensenville businessman who's new in township politics, should draw heavily in the northeast section, experts say. H? is the top man on the Addison Township Taxpayer's party ticket. The other Addison GOP candidates are: Arthur S. Petersen, Bensenville, for assistant township supervisor; Adolph "Atz" Pfotenhauer, Addison, for road commissioner; Lawrence T. Murphy, Elmhurst, for constable to j fill vacancy, and William A. Ernsting, Bensenville, school trustee. The Taxpayer's other nominees are: Elmer G. Eilrich, rural rte. 2, Bensenville, for assistant supervisor; Kenneth Harvey, ruraj rte. 2, Bensenville, for road commissioner; Julius H. Armbruester, rural rte. 1, Bensenville for constable to fill vacancy, and Clarence A. Bostrom Jr., Wood Dale, for school trustee. Ernsting is the only incumbent candidate among these eight men. Petersen and Eilnch are seeking to replace Leonard Geils, Bensenville, who declined to run for third term as assistant supervisor. ROAD COMMISSIONER Fred Geils, rural rte., Lombard, also decided not to seek re-election and so Pfotenhauer and Harvey are running for his job. Clifford Simpson was forced to vacate his constable's pest when he moved to Evanston last year. The Bloomjngdale township election figures to bu rather quiet this year with only three candidates seeking the two jobs that are open. John I. Coppock, Bloomingdale township, and Earl Tedrahn. Cloverdale, make up the People's party. Coppock :s seeking re-election as road commissioner and Tedrahn is unopposed as the candidate for school trustee. COPPOCK'S OPPOSITION is furnished by Franklin Hahn. Bloomingdale township, who is running under the banner of the Voter's party. How They Voted In Town Election 20 Years Ago The Addison and Bloomingdale township elections next Tuesday will probably not set north DuPage county afire, but they'll certainly create quite a furor in comparison with their counterparts of 20 years ago. IN BLOOMINGDALE township on April 7, 1931, a record- breaking total of 46 ballots were cast m the three precincts, in Roselle, Bloomingdale and Cloverdale. Charles R. Broker was the only candidate on the ballots and received a unanimous vote for school trustee. Slightly over 1,000 persons turned out for real competitive balloting at Addison township's seven districts. William Senf, who was unopposed, led the victory of the Straight ticket by being elected supervisor. John J. Kelly, the present day supervisor, and H. C. Benhardt, won the two assistant supervisor's posts, beating out O. E. Schroeder and Albert Rosenwinkel. JOHN B. FROST and William E. Heuer were unopposed for constable and school trustee respectively and were thus automatically swept into office. The township elections of 1931 almost doubled the size of the county board. The 20 member group grew to 36 members since no alteration wns made to compensate for the increase in population that was officially revealed in the 1930. census tabulations. Alterations were later made, but not until considerable inconvenience was experienced in reorganizing the supervisors into larger quarters. 81 Permits Issued For Unincorporated Building In DuPage The 81 building permits issued for construction in the unincor- corated regions of DuPage county Hurinij February had a total valuation of $743,724, according to the latest report of Assistant Supervisor James Carruthers. Glen Ellyn. the county zoning enforcing officer. Fifty-five of the permits were for new homes to cost an estimated $538,250 in all or an average of $9,786 per dwelling. Other permits went out from the zoning department office in Wheaton as follows: nine remod- elings, $31,975; six garages and sheds, $8,200; two business buildings, $30,000; eight sign boards, $865, and one schoolhouse, $44,434. Carruthers also reports the receipt of two applications for change in zoning calssification and the issuance of one cense.
