Honored in Red Tape Week LONG BEACH, Calif. (UPI) — The mail service is now so slow that it is impairing; the production of red tape, depriving bureaucrats of papers to shuffle and useless forms to fill out in triplicate, the founder of .he National Association of Professional Bureaucrats complained Monday. James H. ' Boren, a State Department official for 10 years, took part in the kickoff of "Red Tape Week" at. Cal State Long Beach. He praised the bureaucrats of the nation diligently carrying out their tasks in devotion to the "beauty of dynamic inac- tlon-of yes, but-lsms and forthright twiddlisms ... there is a certain aesthetic to red tape that binds our country together." His association is not opposed to cutting red tape, he said, so long as it is cut lengthwise. And while his group usually supports "orchestrated delay" on principle, the mail service has carried a good thing too far, he said.

UNIFAX Abingdon Sewer Project Under Way ABINGDON - The Abingdon City Council Monday received a report that work has started on a project to separate storm and sewer water lines in the city. Robert Anderson, city engineer, told council members the project began a week ago and has progressed without any problems to date. Anderson said that the contract calls for completion in 300 calendar working days. Abingdon voters more than a year ago approved a bond issue of $260,000 to finance the project as the first step in a sewer improvement plan. Members voted to table action on a hike in sewer and water rates until a report is presented on the amount of revenue which would be Abingdon MRS. GERAtDINE BAUFR Correspondent RFD St. Auguitine, IU.

PRESENT rates are based on the gallonage used and are figured on a sliding scale. The proposed increase would be on a graduated scale, also. Aid. Dan Draper told the council that no grant will be given the city until the council- has instituted a rate hike. Water and sewer rates in the city Have remained at the same level since 1935. Draper reported that present cost of operating the sewer system is $31,400 a year. There are 1,300 water meters in the community. The council gave Illinois Power Co. the franchise for providing power to the 44- acre Mangieri Subdivision on the Berwick Road. The firm has the franchise to provide power to the city. Representatives of McDonough Power Co. also had petitioned the council for the franchise since it has lirites nearby. The police committee was appointed to investigate the possibility of applying for a grant for a new ambulance for the city. DAN BAILEY, coordinator of the St. Mary's Hospital trauma center, explained that if the city's request to a state board is approved, it would be possible for a new ambulance to be purchased with 50 per cent state and 50 per cent local funds. The committee was instructed to check on the area to be covered by the ambulance and state standards before presenting its report.
