POLITICS Continued from Page n economy." , "Local Boy Makes Good" Texas - born Eisenhower swept through his home state receiving virtual "local - hoy - makes - good'' receptions everywhere he spoke. In San Anlonlo, where he'was introduced by Gov: Allan Shivers, he criticized administration leadership for what he said was its failure to win the peace, and he outlined his own plans for achieving that goal. And he s'aid he was proud that a Soviet leader launching an attack on America at the opening of the Russian congress had directed his fire not at Truman as head of the nation but at himself.

Hi 9 hway 61 p hon , 4449 Street from the Kaiorback" COUNCIL (Continue* from Page 1) used for other city street*. Under InU system, the property owners pay for the materials and the city /urnishex the labor and equipment. Mr. Nelson estimated that, after owners of property adjacent these streets had paid their share, about W.376 would be needed by the school to pay its portion. He suggested that "the necessary agency" borrow this money for the school's part and that the IncieM- edness be repaid from (lie BHA I payments to the city. This "necessary agency" probably would be the Citizens School Building Association, which was Incorporated about three years ago to acquire the site for the new school. Depends on Property Owners Since the work would be done on a split-cost basis, however ,the possibilities of the proposal hinge entirely on willingness of property owners along: the streets involved to pay their share. Neither the city nor the school district has the ready cash to pay the full cost. .The question was raised that, since the BHA payment was voluntary /in regard to the. Chlcka.saw Courts project, perhaps this source of revenue might not be permanent. Mr. Taylnr replied that, the Housing Authority was willing to enter Into an agreement with the city making this payment mandatory as fl was in the case of the Negro project. Mr. Nelson asked the Council's approval appointment of a Council committee to work with the school board and citizen's committee on 1 th« propottl. Mayor Dun Blodgett referred the matter to the Finance Committee, which, he said, also was eyeing other needed »treet work In the city. The School Board and the Education committee of the Chamber of Commerce ha'd dtecussed the proposal, Mr. Nelson said, and named him and Paul Pryor, also » school director, to contact the City Council. , BHA Money "Glfi" In making the $1,900 payment (a the city for the Housing Authority. Mr. Taylor emphaslied that the money was "a contribution ... a gift . . , which we want to make." He also told the Council "there are no legal strings attached. We are not required to check the distribution or use of this money by the city." In connection wllh the Housing Authority. Mr. Taylor submitted an ordinance accepting dedication of two streets from Highway 61 cast to the Negro Housing project on Elm Street. Named Atkins and Phillips, the streets run north and south of the project. By accepting dedication of them as public thoroughfares, the city became responsible for their maintenance. The ordinance controlling natural gas pipeline and appliance installations, adopted at the September session, was amended last night. A section requiring persons or firms installing lines or appliances to oblain a certificate of approval of both before work begins was modified to require installers to obtain a permit to do the work at a tee of $1. Another section requiring Installation to be done by a muster plumber or master gas fitter was repealed. City officials said it was found that Arkansas has no regu- PAGE ELEVEH Mima of Mil* natur, applying to ?i \ and hence tne «« u ° n would not be enforceable. City Inspection of the completed work still 1* required, however. City Attorney Percy Wright said repeal of this section "does not abrogate the section requiring installer« to be licensed by the city." Bonds Posted Six »500 surety bonds submitted by Blytheville nlumbers and plumbing and healing firms to qualify as gasfltters were approved by the Council. The bonds were submitted by Joe Walclrup. Berry Allen, Earl Walker, C.'.R. Osbitrn, c. V. Seabaugh and Cecil Lusk. J. Cecil Lowe, operator of a grocery at the corner of Par* and Sixth, appeared before the Council to request thru u traffic light be re-Installed at that Intersection A light had been instated there nearly three years ago but was removed this summer after complaints haci been received about It. Mr. Lowe said the lielit was' needed to give school children n' chance to cross the highway nnd to slow traffic. v.hkh he sntd was "too fast" at that point. He estimated that much traffic traveled 10 to 50 miles an hour at that point, but Mayor Blodgett said an accurate check could not be made except by following In n car. Mayor Blodgctt said the light was removed on the recommendation of a safety expert of (he Arkansas state Police who checked traffic conditions here earlier this year. After arguing briefly as to whether or not the lack of a light had led to accidents, the mayor referred the matter to the Street Committee and said he "would leave the up to them." Ok»y C»b Permit In other action, the Council- Approved application by Eddie McGregor for > permit to operate a taxi cab. Mr. McGregor sought the permit cancelled recently by John Boles so he could put a third cab Into service. Referred to a committee a request for Installation of street lights on Edwards street, heard a request for a. street light at the Davis Street entrance* to Walker Park and approved Installation of a light at 15th and Walnut. Heard thanks from Dr. Alfred Vise, rabbi of Temple Israel, for the city's work In marking parking places at the Temple.
