Sentiment among the legislators wr giviiiK him that authority has wen growing ever since. Bernard Biruch. n mobilization adviser In j»'o world wars, made a slronR plea nsl week for all-out economic mob- Himlon, About the same time the While House made public Mr. Truman's i«(er to Maybank, House Republican leaders came out for handing '•'« President stand-by, but not Mandatory, powers In the rationing •nd price-wage fields. >fler a meeting of the House pOP policy committee.

SOVIET (Continued from page I) discussion of (he American proposal The Soviet work sheet Is worded this way: 1. Adoption of agenda, 2. Recognition of the representative of the Central People's government of the Peoples Republic t,f China as the representative of China. 3. Peaceful settlement of the Korean question. Austin filed his resolution under the original Korean item, which refers to "aggression" in Korea U.N. officials appealed to Malik to change hts wording, or at least to add a new item which would permit discussion of..the U.S resolu- "•fe The Soviet delegate refused. The U.S. however, was understood to have enouph support to overrule any Soviet objections to revising the work sheet. Experts were quick to note that m the draft Soviet agenda, the Russians now are demanding recognition of Red China by the council instead of demanding the ouster of the Nationalist Chinese representatives, as they did last January. The council's rejection of that previous demand resulted in the Russian boycott. Observers believed the new agenda proposal indicated that Malik, as council president might simply declare that China's icat was vacant. The new U.S. proposal calls upon nil governments to use their Influence lo prevail upon the North Koreans to cease their defiance of the U.N. Tl\i s . in effect, was a new np- appeal to Russia to call off the Communist invasion of South Korea. The .American resolution nj so urged all countries to' refrain from assisting or encouraging the North Korean authorities and to avoid ac- tMfwhlch might lead to the spread of- the Korean conflict to other Obituaries Former Osceolan Dies at Sikeston Funeral services for Joseph L'ti Um Sullivan, 65-year-old former Osceola business man who died ol » heart attack at his Sikeston, Mo home late yesterday, will be conducted Thursday at.

SEWERS (Continued fro-n page I) would be needed to bring it to the plant. The new sewer system would Include several lift, stations necessitated by the flatness of Blytheville'K topography. A central lift station would move sewage collected from the various, lateral system districts to the disposal plant. The trunk system recommended by Black and Veatch will accomo- date a cliy of more than 30000 population. The disposal plant, woillr' he constructed to accomodafe , city of Blvthp-'ille's present size. Could Be Expanded However/th* disposal plant coiild be expanded easily by instillation of additional units to care for anv growth in population. The proposed sewer system would be constructed of all steel pipelines It was brought out at the Jaycee meeting: last night that the current international silintion could worsen and result in shortages of steel for such construction. I • • -• However, Mayor Henderson said today that he believed the city could obtain a priority on the basis of need. In any event, he said, the city should procede with necessary arrangements for building this system so quick advantage could be taken of an opportunity to Install The final engineering report submitted by Black and Vealch wa* complete in coverage of all aspects of the sewer situation here. In addition to technical rinds, the report included a brief history of Blytheville. population and growth compared with other cities, and history of the sewer districts here. Finding Reported Here are the. findings of the engineering firm that were derived from its survey and included in the fin«] report: "I. The existing sewer system Is entirely Inadequate to serve Ihe city • 2. A substantial part of the cit> « without sewers. Approximated one-half of the residences in th'r city arc located in the unsewereo areas. "3. Existing sewers are inadequate poorly constructed and in seriou need of relief if they are lo serve properly the existing connections «• well as property adjacent to but nol connected to these sewers. "4. Poor construction, breaks li the sewers and other factors permi- large quantities of ground and sur face water lo enter the existinp sewers. Reconstruction Too Costly 'o. Reconstruction of the e.xlstin< sewers, or construction of new sew ers m the areas now provided will .sewers. In order to eliminate del Iciencies in the existing facilitlc is impractical and prohibitive fron the cost standpoint. "«. A system of intercepting an- relief sewers, along with neccssar lift stations, can be provided to ex tend sewerage facilities to new »re« and also provide relief to the pre sentry overloaded sewers. "7. Existing spettc tanks do nrr provide sewage treatment and hav no value in the Improvement pro gram. "8. Existing water courses aval) able to receive the sewage t\m have little or no flow during per loos :( the year and, consequentlj a sewage treatment plant lo provide primary and secondary treatment Is required. "9. The topography of the oily Is very flat and numerous lift stations "re necessary to prevent excessive depths of sewers. "10. The need for numerous ltd stations and the need for relief sewers through existing sewered areas makes It practical to concentrate the sewage from the entire city .1 a point for pumping lo i single treatment plant." Recommendation* I.We* Based on these findings. Black •nd Ve»ch enjlneerj mide the fol- lowing detailed recommendation! in the firm's firul report. "I. The construction of * cewage treatment, plant to serve • population of 15,000 with adequate space for future expansion. "2. The construction of adequate relief sewerf, intercepting sewers, trunk mains, lift stations, »nd force mains to provide the basic sewerage Jicillliw • to serve the entire city. "3. The payment of all costs for the facilities recommended above from revenue* derived from the city, »s * whole, either through t»x levien or from sewer service charges or a combination of the two methods. "4. The institution of sewer service charges, based on water usa'ge, to produce sufficient revenues lo pay all costs of operation, maintenance «nd future improvements, as well as to pay at least part of the capital costs of the construction program recommended herein. "5. The extension of lateral severs horn the trunk lines recommended above in order to make sewer service available wherever such Is justified by the development. Expansibility fjrj.d "8, The planning and establishment of all facilities so they can be readily extended to serve al) parts of the city which may develop "7. The assessment of all costs for the construction of lateral sewers against the benefited property. "8. The establishment of lateral districts as nearly possible to conform to the contributory areas shown on the attached exhibits, nr, if at all possible, to Include the entire city (exclusive of [presently sewered areas) into a single district, and the construction of all lateral sewers wh(ch are needed at present under a unified program. Property which can connect directly to trunk sewers should be Included in lateral districts where such sewers are located outside existing benefit districts. "9. The establishment of a department under a qualified engineer to operate and maintain the facilities and to supervise routine connections, extensions and improvements to the system. "10. The Immediate institution of necessary negotiations to arrange for the financing and authorization of n program of improvements." PACK THKEK • KOREA (Continued from page 1) Hamchang-Ajidong front.
