Alderman Jodie Nabors recommended that the Council follow up its request for the extension of mains by action lo get them installed. Fire Chief Hoy Head said additional fire hydrants and mains in "This delegate will go along with such decisions any time and he wont' pick up his ball and bat and go home. " This crack at Lewis' threat to quit the AFL Executive Council was drowned in shouts for a vote' on the question. Only the deles-ales from the Ulvrw and several scattered federal local unions voter! with Lewis in the showdown.

Chief Hoad also cited the fieneral need tor errMer fire protection throughout Blylhcvillc antt pointed out numerous specific areas where inadequate water and hydrant facilities exlsled. His statements made it apparent thai Blytheville was scarcely more than a well-popuUlcd lire-trap. The main Issue, however, lo- cused on the lack of facilities at Walker Park and the discussion always returned to this phase of the water situation. Chief Head and Mr. Allen said that from 1.2CO to 1.50D teel of pipe at five cents a foot would be required to lay a 12-inch main '.o Walker Park.
