10 ...Gofttbwa Register-Moll,Galesbufg, Ml. Wednesday, May 23, 1973 Sewer Work To Proceed In Galva GALVA - The Galva City Council Tuesday voted to proceed with major storm sewer repairs. The council action was taken with the hope that Galva will be in the group of cities to receive funds from state and federal governments to continue a project of improving the n o r t h e a s t sewage treatment plant and the southwest lagoon. Phillip Jacobs, engineer with Daily & Associates, Peoria, told the council that Galva stands an outside chance of being in the group of communities numbering some 800 which will be given grants, perhaps in June or July. Jacobs said the city's action to purchase land for the enlargement project and completing an engineering study may make a difference in the city's standing on the priority list for cities to receive funds. THE COUNCIL was told that a storm sewer at the west edge of the Lily-Tulip Corp. and a manhole south of the Burlington Northern tracks are in need of immediate attention. Jacobs said that tests indicate a break in a line near the Lily-Tulip plant. A 50- foot section of pipe under the Rock Island Lines branch track on West Division Street was also pinpointed as needing replacement. Jacobs was instructed to include these repairs in a study which he expects to have ready for presentation to the council early this summer. He GALVA MRS.

HENDERSON UNITED METHODIST Worship 11:15 A.M. said an engineering study is expected to start Thursday on a sanitary sewer extension in the east part of Galva. Downtown sidewalk repairs will also be included in the study. Councilmen heard a detailed report from Jack Clifford, Cambridge council member, on action taken by that community to correct infiltration of water into the sanitary sewer system. He said that a heavy downpour last month resulted in the area treated being cleared of excess water in two days, while 1-2 weeks of pumping would have been required before treatment. A representative of Ratliff Brothers of Kewanee, which did the sealing work at Cambridge, explained the process. No cost of the program was given for Galva, since an area to be treated would first have to be designated. The procedure was referred to Jacobs for study and a recommendation. THE COUNCIL voted to call for bids on sale of the present city garage on West Division Street June 26 at 7:30 p.m. The garage will be replaced by a new one for which bids have been let. It will be the second time the council has called for bids on the structure. Both bids submitted the first time were reiected as being too low. Mayor James B. Young told council members that the Henry County Highway Department will probably not be able to do the work of oiling, chipping and blacktopping city streets this summer because of the heavy work load it faces. Young said, however, that materials probably will be obtained throuah the county, with work to be accomplished by citv crews and Ray Dillon, Galva Township Road Commissioner.

(UPI) —Storey County officials don't want any activities "calculated to excite or stimulate the prurient interests" performed outside legalized brothels. The county commissioners have drawn up a proposed ordinance which would ban topless and nude shows, X-rated movies, massage parlors and other sexual stimulants outside houses of prostitution. They plan to approve it June 5. Storey County was the first in Nevada to license brothels, which are legal in the state on a county option basis.

REGULAR meeting of B-PC School District 170's Board of Education was canceled Monday night because of the lack of a quorum. David Ogle, the board president, and Mrs. George Sperry, the secretary, were out of town and other members apparently were working in the fields, school officials said. A special meeting will be held in the near future. School officials noted that this was the first time in more than 12 years that a regularly - scheduled board meeting failed to materialize. Members of the Bushnell Business and Professional Women's Club honored senior girls at Bushneil-Prairie City High School at a buffet supper Monday at the United Methodist Church. Mrs. Uene Lawson presided in the absence of Mrs. Doris Chaffee, the president. Mrs. Lawson welcomed the 57 girls who were introduced by Mrs. Joanne Barfield of the school faculty. Each girl told of her plans for the future. Mrs. Anna Kugler sang "Over the Rainbow," accompanied by Miss Nancy Louden. Both are teachers.

The egg throwers included several teachers who "will be fired," according to Marge Freed, the school's public information director who acted as a spokesman for Reagin and President James Dixon. The strike involves a guarantee the students want that 350 needy students will have access to financial aids through to graduation. The school, fearful that federal grants will be cut, has offered only a two-year guarantee.

"Most of the students are in a i bind because of this lack of a four-year guarantee," 9aid Dennis Warren, a third-year student from Boston, who is taking part in the strike. "By their failure to guarantee || the same level of financial aid, Jtihe administration is attacking j the way of life of manv [students," Warren said. "It |[ comes down to the same thing.
