Month Boost BY RUSS CONE Scavenger companies ap pealed to the city yesterday to let them boost the cost of dumping garbage and then levy an average of 25 cents a month increase on household collection rates to help meet the dumping cost. The average home rate of $1.10 would become $1.3.1. Applications were filed wi! h the city's three-member rate board by Sanitary Fill Company, which runs the garbage did ion get a promotion or a iniiiii se? Believe it or not, management wants to promote you, to pay you more. But you must offer more than technical skiQ on your job. Promotable people must above all have the ability to motivate others, to speak effectively anywhere, to get their ideas across with clarity and conviction. These are the very abilities that the Dale Carnegie Course helps to develop in thousands of men and vfomea every year. And 3 out of 4 of them increase their incomes within one year. Promise yourself right now to find out more about this world-famoof education program. Plan now to attend a fret) 1 demonstration meeting.

LOSS FORECAST Sanitary Fill now charges the two collection agencies $1.50 a ton to dump garbage in the fill area west of Bay-shore Freeway. A recent charter amendment gives it the right to seek a higher rate. A petition submitted to Chief Administrative Officer Sherman P. Duckel, chairman of the rate board, states Sani tary Fill cleared only a fraction of a per cent profit on last year's operation and stands to suffer a 13 per cent operating loss this year. The firm cited higher operating costs and a $140,000 investment in dikes, trenches and other devices to reduce garbage odors in the dump vicinity. Sunset, which paid $160.- 000 in Federal income taxes last year, claims its profit margin will drop to 2.7 per cent this year if rates are not increased. The Protective Association, which paid $135,400 in Federal taxes last year, claimed it stands to lose $58,600 this year. COST INCREASE The collection agencies, which own Sanitary Fill joint. ly, contend operating costs are up 30 per cent, most of which is directly attributed to the higher cost of dump ing garbage. Duckel said the appeals would be referred to Works Director Reuben H. Owens who will review the data and possibly conduct public hear ing.s. Owens later will recom mend a course of action to the rate board which includes Controller Harry D. Ross and Utilities Manager Robert C. Kirk wood. Itnnrri Delays OK on Ilonils A decision on whether to approve the proposed $1,-750,000,000 State water bond issue or not was postponed for another week by the Board of Supervisors yesterday. Supervisor James Leo Halle y, w h o originally called the issue out of committee, was absent but is scheduled to be present at next week's meeting. Board Reluctantly Grants Water Department Funds lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllltlllllllllllllllllllllllll Actions by Supervisors Heels Will Heal 5 More Alcatra Cons Cut Tendons Fire more Alcatraz felons have made token slashes upon their heel tendons, it was announced yesterday, bringing to 14 the number in solitary who have indulged in the weird demonstration. Nine prisoners in solitary, most of them for ringleading the recent prisonwide sit-in strike, cut their heels last Wednesday, presumably with a broken lens from eyeglasses. Associate Warden Olin D. Blackwell said the wounds may have been made by a sharp scrap from a steel bed frame. The wounds were so superficial that the men were re turned to solitary after first aid treatment by a Public Health Service doctor. Two were fomenters of the sit-in strike, but the other three were in the isolation block before the strike started. "We think it is for the nuisance value," was the only explanation Blackwell could offer. He declined to give the names of the men. Girl Fights Francis Suit Over Paint Republican Assemblyman Louis Francis' suit to oust a pretty air line hostess from a San Mateo apartment building owned by his wife was challenged yesterday. It already had been challenged, in another way, by the hostess. Judy Bell, who in a tiff about whether she could deduct a $30 painting bill from her rent retorted by coating the windows of her apartment at 1415 El Camino Real with posters recom mending election of Francis' Democratic rival for office, Robert Hardgrove. And yesterday, attorney Antonio Gaudio, who just happens to be a Democrat, filed a demurrer. That means he claims the summons served on Miss Bell is no good. Murder Charge GOLDEN (Colo.). Sept. 26. (AP) A murder charge was filed in Justice Court to day against Joseph Corbett Jr. in the apparent kidnap-slaying of wealthy Colorado brewer Adolph Coors III. The Board of Supervisors put Water Department Man ager James II. Turner through the hoops for an hour yesterday before voting 7 to 3 to give him money for a new maintenance yard. The allotment was $790,000 to buy seven acres of surplus Marine Corps land at Islais Creek and begin design work. Turner said the new yard would enhance efficiency, enable the department to vacate facilities at 639 Bryant St. where work conditions are intolerable and allow the city to sell the Bryant Street site plue a bcolk of property at University Mounds. The Finance Committee gave the deal what Super visor John J. Ferdon called "insipid indorsement." Ferdon pointed out that Turner was given $460,000 four years ago to rehabilitate the Bryant Street plant "and not one cent was spent for this work." But Turner took the worst abuse from Supervisors Harold S. Dobbs. Mrs. Clarissa S. McMahon and William C. Blake who finally voted against it. Dobbs questioned Turner about Wat?r Department profits. He was told the de partment clears $2,000,000 to $2,500,000 a year. Most of it, Turner said, is plowed back into repairs and improvements. "If you let the Water De-pa r t m e n t go," declared Dobbs. "they'll spend all the profit every year. There is no reason w hy -ome of it should not be used to reduce the tax rate." Mrs. McMahon asserted the purchase of the surplus federal land would be "no bar- The Board of Supervisors took action on the following matters yesterday: WATER Postponed debate one week on a policy decision of whether to support the $1,750,000,000 State water bond issue on the November ballot.

Blake scolded the department for competing with private industry by using its work crews io make products generally sold by pipe concerns. A few stood in support of Turner's plan on grounds it is tne only way to obtain a modern ghop facility. A condition of the appropriation was, however, that he cannot soend $90,000 of the design funds until the supervisors screen his preliminary plans for the new yard. He estimated the new yard would cost $1,250,000, but explained to the Finance Committee last week the estimate was merely for the purpose of requesting design funds. 10,000 Visit Mariposa at Vancouver VANCOUVER. Sept 26 Some 10,000 persons visited the Matson liner Mariposa during a four -hour open house aboard the vessel today following its first call at this port in a direct voyage from Honolulu.
