"We are well within our allotted time frame," he added. "The district can hold the bids for up to 90 days, so you can see that we are well within that time frame. "Assuming everything falls into place, we ought to get notice to proceed around July 23." Asked about a suspected shortcoming in funds, Thomas admitted that the cost of the overall project exceeded somewhat the total number of dollars originally estimated and requested in the bond process. He added that the FmHA is in the process of obligating the additional funds for the job, and no problems are foreseen in doing so. He declined to specify the amount which is being added to the original water district funds. "We were a little short," he indicated. * Mosquito Continued from Page 1 The mree diseases most commonly associated with mosquitoes are malaria, yellow fever and encephalitis. Malaria and yellow fever are not commonly associated with the United States, according to Francka, however, encephalitis which · involves the inflammation of the brain. Retardation can be a result. There is even a St. Louis- named strain of encephalitis, Francka recalled, a name to prove that such a disease can be found in Missouri. The disease is not common, however, because it involves the intricate transference of the individual insect biting a host carrier, usually poultry, and then the biting of a horse or human by the same insect. How does one put a halt to the overwhelming number of mosquitoes? "This year it's almost hopeless," Francka said. "Just try to make sure that theie are not a lot of containers that hold water around your property. That will help some." Francka said that the city council in a Texas community recently passed an ordinance requiring all of the residents to pick up all old tires because of a terrible mosquito problem there this summer. Although it appears unlikely that such drastic action will occur in this area, it does appear that the mosquitoes are here to stay until the freezing hands of winter drive them back one more time.

Reagan embargo hurting in Europe By JAMES GERSTENZANG Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Reagan administration officials are acknowledging that relations with the European allies are "extraordinarily tense," in part because of expansion of a ban on U.S. oil -and gas equipment to the Soviet Union. They also say'a preliminary 'peacemaking effort begun by Alexander M. Haig Jr., in which a group of Cabinet members would focus on how to best deal w i t h the deteriorated relations with Europe, has been' put on hold since Haig's resignation as secretary of state. The problems, which started cropping up almost as soon as the president returned home from his 10-day European tour at the beginning of the month, became most pronounced after he decided on June 18 to expand the ban on U.S. oil and gas equipment sales to foreign subsidiaries and licensees of American companies. The United States first imposed the sanctions, aimed at delaying construction of the Soviet Union's natural gas pipeline to Europe, last December as a reaction to the declaration of martial law in Poland. The West Europeans also are disturbed by the Reagan administration's recent decisions to curb imports of European steel and to contest Europe's joint agricultural policy. One administration official said Bill Brock, Reagan's spec ; al trade representative, returned from Europe last week and reported "that the relationship was extraordinarily tense." The official, who asked for anonymity, added: "I've come to the same conclusion." In Brussels on Tuesday, the leaders of the 10 Common Market nations wound up a two-day meeting, agreeing that "the maintenance of the open world trade system will be seriously jeopardized" if the Reagan administration Red Cross elects for 1982-83 Attract more customers to your garage sales by using the Constitution-Tribune Want Ads!

The article states offenders can be divided into two groups with the primary group "included neurasthenics with periodic impulsive exhibitionism." Cowherd said Dr. Wisdom testified that Hightower was "acting on impulse" when making the telephone calls and the action was a "mischanneled release of anger." Both the article and Dr. Wisdom recommend the defendant should be placed on probation with the stipulation he receive psychiatric therapy. But Judge Lame felt Hightower should serve time in jail for the charges filed against him. * Economic Continued from Page 1 In a news conference before the speech, the secretary said the government faces a serious problem in taxes not being collected -- $95 billion this year alone. He blamed the shortfall on people on a cash economy who don't report their income and underreported corporate profits. The answer, he said, is to add 5,200 Internal Revenue Service agents, a proposal now under consideration in Congress. Regan said 3,000 of the agents would work on collecting overdue back taxes while the rest would audit tax returns more closely. Before President Reagan nominated Regan to the treasury post, he was the head of Merill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner Smith Inc., the giant Wall Street stock brokerage firm. ing at the Citizens Bank and Trust Courtesy Room in Chillicothe. According to, secretary Elizabeth Ewen, Eunice Cassity was elected to succeed Willa Jane Smith as president of the local Red Cross chapter. Other officers elected for 1982-83 are Albert Pendleton, vice-president; and Earle Teegarden, Jr., treasurer. Board members elected to 3-year terms are Earle Teegarden, Jr., Albert Pendleton, Catherine Rupp, Eunice Cassity, Norma Bevelle, Jerry Bevelle, Ron Jones, Kay Thistlewaite, J.B. Thistlewaite, Hal Juckette and Marjorie Vaughn. A number of committee chairmen were appointed during the annual meeting. E.L. Reed was appointed chairman of disaster services; Ruby Robbins, volunteer coordinator; Evelyn Griffith, Hedrick Medical Center and Morningside Center volunteers, Renetta Teegarden and Norma Bevelle, Candy Stripers cochairmen; Betty Colton, safety services; and Lynn Leopard, water safety chairman. Board members whose terms expire in 1983 are Frances Akers, Don Chapman, Marilyn Dorst, Carl Hudnall, Melba Inman, Sherri Maupin, Ellen Miller, Tom Otke and Ruby Robbins. Those whose terms expire in 1984 are Betty Colton, Dick Gilroy, Evelyn Griffith, Kay Lowry, Ruth Pendleton, E.L. Reed, Willa Jane Smith and Renetta Teegarden. Secretary Ewen presented a brief financial report for the year. Since all the figures for the Red Cross Fund campaign have not yet been turned in, a report will be made later on. total funds collected.

But British Foreign Secretary Francis Pym predicted that the differences could be resolved, and others ' said negotiations would be undertaken to settle the disputes. "It was an unhappy response," said one U.S. official in his discussion of the Common Market statement. French President Francois Mitterrand, who accused the Reagan administration of "unjustified and dangerous" policies toward Europe, criticized the attempt to hinder construction of a Soviet-Western European pipeline. Mitterrand also claimed that Reagan had used the economic summit June 4-6 at Versailles as a "propaganda" p l a t f o r m , and said the American president broke a promise not to interfere with the pipeline. "1 don't know where that came from," said one Reagan administration official. Another official said he knew of no agreement at the summit dealing with the pipeline question. At the State Department, officials refused to speak for the record. But administration officials, who asked to remain unidentified, said Reagan had given summit participants no reason to anticipate that he would reverse his opposition to development of the pipeline. "As to the signals they've received out of Washington and from the president, I don't believe the record shows any disparity or wavering in his position that should have given rise to these expectations," one official said. "The president has been very consistent on this question," said another administration official, also requesting anonymity. "There were no private conversations that would have supported another type of decision. There were no deals. There have not been mixed signals." Nor were any conflicting signals given by Haig, as far as this official could tell. Haig was reported to have argued strongly within the administration that the pipeline ban should be relaxed, and the decision against him was viewed by some to have played a role in his resignation. But one official said that the Europeans could have read "an intimation" that if an agreement was reached at Versailles on limiting favorable credit treatment for trade with the Soviet Union, "the pipeline question would be easier to manage." The credit agreement became a sticking point on the final day of the summit and was eventually resolved, with much fanfare at the end of the day. In addition, this official said, by delaying a decision on the pipeline question until after the summit, the president may have led the Europeans to believe that if they relaxed their oppsition to the credit restrictions that he · sought, he would take the resolution of this issue into consideration when making the pipeline decision. A U.S. official, speaking with the understanding he would not be identified, said in Brussels that the private talks centered on "understandings reached during the summit." He would not elaborate. Street workers hired Two men were approved for employment on the Chillicothe Street Department during Monday night's city council meeting. Bill Hatfield and Donald Sayers were approved for hiring during the street committee report presented by Fourth Ward Councilman Darrel Rineharl Jr. Trager bid accepted A bid from Trager and Sons Construction for construction of a concrete parking area on the east side of the new fire-police building was approved in Monday night's meeting. The Trager bid was for $5,700, including base work. The parking area concrete specifications call for a thickness of six inches, and Mayor Tom Oliver said Trager had indicated the concrete will be 95 percent density. Liquor licenses Five liquor license renewals were approved on 4-1 votes by the Chillicothe City Council. Two Class I licenses, for Uptown Package and Lickety Split, were approved for renewal. Class I deals with package sales of liquor. Two Class II licenses, for Pepper's Pub and the Upper Court, Inc., were approved for renewal. Class II deals with liquor by the drink. One Class III license, for Pizza Hut, was approved for renewal. Class III deals with 5 percent beer by the drink. The dissenting vote in each of the cases was cast by Fourth Ward Councilman Darrel Rinehart Jr. Financial report Councilman-At-Large and Finance Committee Chairman Dick Garr said a gasoline tax check of $7,219.69 had been received. A motor vehicle sales tax check of $1,186 was also reported as received. Both were transferred to the street fund. Resignation accepted The city council accepted the written resignation of William Snyder from the city street department. Field planting still behind schedule COLUMBIA, MO. (AP) Persistent rain abated last week and farmers were able to return to their fields, but some planting remained behind schedule, the Missouri Crop and Livestock Reporting Service said Monday. Most field were dry enough to work by the end of the week except for bottom land where excessive moisture from weeks of consistent rain remained a problem, the reporting service said.

The weekly report said 77 percent of the state's grain sorghum is planted, 210 days ahead of last year but 13 days behind normal. Single crop soybean plantings were 78 percent complete, six days ahead of last year but 12 days behind normal The reporting service said virtually all of the state's wheat crop has turned color and the harvest should be under way soon in most areas if dry weather continues. Ninety-one, percent of the wheat in the Bootheel is harvested and the statewide is 21 percent complete. The condition of cotton in the Bootheel is 42 percent fair and 58 percent good.
