Mr. Dillman said that a recel.t, survey among Caruthersville business men Indicated 30 favor installation of meters, and 25 were agaiiut, the plan. Only those merchants In the thickly congested parkins and traffic district of the city were contacted In this poll. Bometlme ago a drive was made to get business men and their em- I ployees park their cars on side streets, and leave the main business streets-for rural residents who e*me to town to shop. A parking lot, covering almost a city block, was : blacktopped and drained just off Ward Avenue, between West "Fourth »nd Fifth streets, and various side streets were designated as "workers parking areas".

After Alderman Dillman's proposal to the Council, it yas decided to contact various towns which have installed meters, and also companies manufacturing them, for further information. New Instrument . Sought to Search For Atomic Energy WASHINGTON. Oct. 13. (UP) — The Naltonal Bureau of Standards disclosed today that construction has bccun on a mysterious new instrument with which to search for i:ew sources of atomic eneri-y. Atomic energy tints far has been released by man only through the process known as nuclear fission. Atomic bombs are set off—and heru- gcnernt-in^ nuclear reactors are operated—by splitting certain uranium on plutonimn atoms. Nuclear fission Is not very efii- cient. It releases only one half of otic per cent of the energy stor-jd in the atom. Cosmic rays nre far more efficient. They release nuclear energy in amount millions of time's greater than nuclear fission. The bureau's disclosure of ll.s search for new sources of atomic energy ivns made In a report on the formation of a division of atomic physics which will coordinate Uic bureau's unclear and molecular research work. The bureau said the main pnr- V»ose of the nc\v division Ls "the precise determination of the atomic masses in order to give basic in- fonnnlion about nuclear structure Rites Held for Former \ Caruthersyille Man CARUTHERSVILLE, Mo., Oct. la. -Funeral services for Robert Graj Lumpkin, -n, were held here V'ednrsdny iti the Methodist Church, with the Rev.
