French Revamp Economic Setup Cabinet Withdraws Subsidies on Coal And Other Items By JOSEPH W. GRTGG TJnited Press Staff Correspondent PARIS, Nov. 5. (U.P.)—The cabinet began revamping Prance's basic economy today by withdrawing subsidies from coal and other industries, hiking the retail price of coal and lifting price controls from a number . ol products. Caught between defense of the franc and balancing the budget, the cabinet took its first major steps toward the economic ref ganizalion for which Premier lul Ramadicr called when he : and steel Circuit Court Upholds Garbage Fee Ordinance Barber Shop Owner ' Convicted, Ordered To Pay City Levy Circuit Judge Z:il B. Harrison yesterday upheld in its entirety the city ordinance levying a garbage fee when he instructed a Jury in the Chickasawba District of Mississippi County circuit Court to return a verdict of guilty against Burl Davidson of Blythcville, who earlier this year appealed a Municipal Court Judgment fining him lor nonpayment of the 15-ccnts-a-momh assessment. In the instructed verdict returned against Davidson, who operates a barber shop in the 1300 block on West Main street, the jury recommended a flue of $5 plus court cosls. Gives Specific Instructions In ills instructions to the jury,. Judge Harrison held: 1. That Davidson's defense that he hud no', received, garbage collection service was not tomible. 2. That, under the city ordinance, householders must furnish their own garbage containers, place the refuse in them and make them ac- ccsiible to the collectors. 3. That the defendant made no contention and did not show ihnt the ordinance was invalid. 4. That the garbage fee is payable in advance. This cast was the second major court attack on the garbage Ice ordinance and was the second time it was upheld. City officials said yesterday's decision leaves little doubt that the issue has been settled and answers definitely arguments made against the ordinance by R number oj persons \vho have been .sought to avoid payment of the fee. < The argument most frequently advanced, these of ficials pointed out, is that a person who disposes of his own garbage in his own man- _iier is not liable for the fee.. Similar Case on Docket This argument was answered when the ordinance was upheld yesterday »5 it specificnU'y-;requires householders to furnish containers, place garbage in them and make them accessible to the collectors.
