CXIX, No. 82 Serving the Alton Community for More Than 118 Yean Airlifts Support French By LARRY ALLKN HANOI, Indochina .<? — The thousands ol valiant defenders of Dim Biru Phti—trapped by encircling hosts of Communist-led Vietminh troops — received fresh strength from the skies today. American-supplied Dakotas and Flying Boxcars, piloted b> American civilian flyers, swooped low Inrough curtains of fire from rebel artillery and antiaircraft batteries to parachute tons more ammunition, food and war material of all types into the long - besieged French Union bastion. Despite cloudy, rain-laden skies which forced war planes to curtail radically their assaults on rebel positions, fighters firing rockets and heavy machine guns tried to knock out the Vietminh's antiaircraft guns. They gave cover to the low-flying transports dropping more supplies for the garrison, battered by two all-out rebel assaults since March 12 and constant local Vietminh attacks in the intervening weeks. The legions of Communist Ho Chi Minh have ringed the fortifications with trenches and dugouts 1.000 yards or less from the fortress' main barriers.

Broadway outside Alton's east limits Monday night retained George M. Berry, attorney, to "represent them in connection with notices they have received from the State of Illinois advising correction of sewage overflow conditions. < Berry said today that septic tank overflow draining off hills to the north of East Broadway, from Serin Aye. east to Miami Ave, seeps onto the four-lane highway between Alton and East Alton. The residents notified, he said, are those who live at the side of the road, but the drainage from septic tanks on the hills and further away from the highway contributes to the overflow. He estimated some 25 or 30 persons had received notices from the State Department of Public Works and Buildings, which quoted Article 8, section 168A of Illinois Road and Bridge laws. The letter stated the situation must be corrected prior to July 3, he said. Seepage is most apparent in the area of the highway known as "Death Valley" (because of the frequency of fatal auto crashes jn that vicinity i. Some 20 residents met with Berry at: the Blankenship garage, 2806 E. Broadway, Monday njght. A committee of three was appointed to investigate the sewage overflow conditions and report in two weeks. Committee members are Francis Mills, Herman Blankenship and Murle Olive. The residents whose septic tanks overflow are all outside Alton liniits, Berry said. 3 Hurt in Falls 13 Treated for Injuries At St. Joseph's Monday Thirteen persons incurred in juries requiring hospital treat ment Monday.

T. Coleman Andrews presented H statistical summary to n Senate hearing conducted by Sen. Byrd iD-Va). He did not pinpoint any single project. However, Byrd said housing officials guaranteed 21 million dollars In loans on Glen Oaks Village in Queers Couiily. New York, at- though the project cost only 20 million. And Byrd declared he understood rents In (he Glen Oaks project were "15. or 20 or 25 per cent higher" due to the fact lhal loans to the projfd were in excess of construe- tlon costs. Andrews put in that not all of Iboso loans were government insured. No Fraud Andrews also said Iho revenue service thought there was no fraud, either civil or criminal, Involved because the builders of Ihe Glen Oaks project Imd fully disclosed their Income In tax returns. The Glen Oaks project was completed about five years ago. The huge Glen Oaks Village, comprising about 3,000 apartments, is a garden-type development of two-story apartment buildings located In tho easternmost part of New York City's Queens Borough on Long Island. Project officials were not immediately available for comment on Sen. Byrd's assertions'. Andrews estimated government revenue losses had been 28 million lollars owing to tax advantage* secured in these cases. As to the question of corruption, Andrews said there was "one situ, atlon'" where "we think there was corruption in appraising" the cost of a construction project for th» purpose of securing an FHA loan guarantee. He made no further Identification of the case. Byrd recessed the hearing, without" nailing a date for it to be resumed, after getting the figurei from Andrews.
