Final Report Places Sewer System Cost at $1266,427 The new sewer system proposed for Blytheville will cost the city an estimated SI 266,42*. according to the final report of Black and Veatcli, Kansas City Mo engineering firm, that was made public for the first time last night. ' Mayor Doyle Henderson, addressing the Blytheville Junior Chamber of commerce last night, announced these figures in making public the final report of the engineering firm that surveyed the city's out-daicd sewer system. This report followed closely a preliminary report presented the City Council at a special session June 20 by Ed A. farmer, principal engineer for and 1 Veatch. The final report was sipned by Mr. Farmer and R. Ij. Brown. who also helped conduct the sewer survey here. Total cost of the new system—listed as an estimate but regarded as a close one—is. broken down into two maior portions. A system of trunk sewer mains, which would be the backbone of thc entire set-up, will cost an estimated $827,207. Truman Asks $4 Billion To Arm Anti-Red Allies WASHINGTON, Aug. 1. «V-President Truman told Congress today that world peace has been endangered by the Korean crisis and asked it to vote quickly^OOAMftOOO of new money to arm anti-Corn- m^tt^^ ABJHM "*• ^—»*8Su!s ? *. * 3* "?TS,S^: •££$? H*S? -s^v w imperative, the President said In a letter to House Speaker Rayburn m-Tex) formally asking for the money. • Mr. Truman added: "It is now clear- that the free nations must accelerate the - efforts they are making lo strengthen their common security. "No Alternative" "They now have no alternative but to increase rapidly their preparedness to defend the principles ol International law-ami justice for which the United Nations stands. This course provides the best hopes of deterring future calculated outbreaks against the peace of thc world." Mr Truman had advised Congressional leaders at a White House conference yesterday that he would ask tor the S'l.000.000,000. The reaction in Congress indicated there was general sentiment to provide it. Senate Serves Notice However, the Senate, took occasion, in acting on another foreign aid measure, to serve notice that it thinks the time has come for the nations to stand up and be counted in thc fight against Communism. It did this by writing into a $3-1.765.000.000 one-package appropriations bill power for the President to cut'off economic recovery funds from any country that refuses h?Ip for the United Nations light in Korea. There were also rising dcnuinds for arms aid to nations outside the Atlnntic Pact. 1 There are many senators \vho w.Tiit, for instance, to help Spain. The.

Aug. 1. liVi -The Socialist-controlled Belgian Trade Union Federation ordered all striking workers to return to their jobs today after King Leopold asked parliament to delegate his powers to his son. prince Baudouin. The king offered, in effect, a slow- motion abdication. With liis powers transferred to the young prince, Leopold would remain king in name only. The prince' would become king on his 21st birthday nest year if the solution proposed by Leopold brought peace to the country. Crowds outside Socialist headquarters cheered a government announcement that decreed all persons nr- rested during the past few days of disorders will be released. This eased the critical tension that has pervaded Belgium for weeks, but the area of Brussels around parliament and the ministries was put into a state ot siege this afternoon, 12 hours after Leopold's announcement. Police from all over Brussels were concentrated there. They put barbed wire fences and stationed armored cars between the royal palace and parliament. Most of the city was quiet, however. Communists at a demonstration charged the anti-Leopold opposition had sold out. Max Buscl. Socialist leader, .was howled down with cries of "abdication, we want abdication" as he tried to speak from a balcony. Lateral sewer lines, which would join individual hcuscs to thc trunk system, will cost an estimated $339,130. Less Than First figure This is $55,573 less than the total estimate given in the initial report. The Una] report's estimate of the trunk system cost is S5,291 higher than in the preliminary report, but the lateral system estimate Is ?GO,807 lower. Payment of interest in retiring a bond issue for the $927,207 trunk system cost^-plus maintenance and operating expenses—would run about $09.80(1 a year, the report stated. This is based on payment of three per cent interest. This, however, docs not include payment, 1 ! on the debt itself. Mayor Henderson said this morning that an actuary would be needed to compute these payments because, ol the decrease in interest as the debt was retired. Ol the two possible methods'of paying for the trunk line system Ihe engineering firm recommended a sewer service charge as opposed to a property tax as the rnost'equitable incthcd of distributing the cost. Based on Water Use Under this method, users of tl sewer system would be assessed .. service charge based on • their water consumption. This charge would be added to their water bill each month. This was considered more equitable than retiring thc 'bond issue by means of a. tax assessed owners of property. The report slated that under R service charge system, nonpayment of thc fee generally resulted in t:ie consumer'.? water service being hnlt- ed. Legality of this has been "doubted" in Blylhcvillc, the report said, but the practice was almost universal in its use elsewhere. Mayor Henderson pointed out that this practice might be complicated somewhat here because of private ownership of the water company serving thc city. The lateral sewer system woii.d be paid for on the basis of.improve- ment districts and assessment would thereby be based on benefits received. Urges City Control Also recommended was city control over construction of lateral sewers. The report said (bis was necessary for uniformity in coiuitruc- ticn and because tho system wculu become the city's property for operation and maintenance when thc districts were paid out. Existing laterals could be used in Ihe new system, it was pointed out, and this would prevent re-asscis- ment of residents in districts where debts for such sewers already have i been retired. I Mayor Henderson said he would ! like, to see the proposed sewer syi;- 1 tern voted on by the city's residents I in the November election. The prop- i osition would be placed on Ihe bal i lot so as to show whether thc vot ers wanted the sewer improvement i program undertaken and. if so which method of financing they Last-Minute Rushes For Truck Licenses Fail to Materialize The expected rush of late-buyers of truck licenses failed to materialize yesterday at the offices of the Arkansas Revenue Department In Blytheville. and Osceola officials announced this morning. Although thc local office remained open until midnight last night—thc deadline for buying the licenses—only 181 licenses were sold. This compared with a normal day's sales, ofticlals stated. The Osceola office, which also remained open until the deadline, time, reported 23-1 sates. This made o total of Sfi.54750 taken in by thc O.sccola office as compared with Sf.,727.20 taken in last year, a difference or SI79.70. Totals from thc Blytheville ol- flce were not completed this morning. Penalties for lite purchasers ol truck licences sent into cf.'ccl today. desired. Although Black and Veatch has •«ifd that It will require at least two years to construct such a sewer system, the city should be prepared' to proceed with siiOi a project regardless of when It can be started. Mayor Henderson said. I'lant Site Kccnmnicnded Two sites for a sewage disposal plant were recommended in the final Black and Veatch report. One Is located on the west side ol Lum- crale Bayou near its junction with Pcmiscol Bayou. This area Is west of thc Country club golf course The other site is on the south bank of Pemiscnt Hayou about a mile west ol 21st Street. Black and Veatcli favors the Lumcratc Hayou location because a Plant here would not be endangered by any potential overflow and because no re-pumping' of sewage Src SKWIins on rate .1 N. O.
