COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, DECEMBER, 17, 1954 RE1/IEW ™° FORECAST \A/ 4- K W 9T0I Possibility for State Now | C IS ^U.S. Groin Helps Soak Up Europe's Flood Damage— LITTLE ROCK (AP) By LEON HATCH The 1955 legislature will be asked to authorize a new state aeencv to regulate water use in Arkansas. . . . This was revealed today with release of the .latest revision of a proposed water rights bill prepared by the Water Resources Development Council. Slate S«n. Marvin Melton of Joncsboro, president of the council, and Joe C. Barrett, Joncsboro lawyer, told reporters that essentially the revision differs little from previous drafts, but that there huve been a number of changes in details. Regulatory Body The 20-page proposal is designed to set up machinery to regulate water use for agricultural, re • creational. industrial, municipal and other purposes, nnd to help in conserving the supply. Briefly, the measure would attempt to preserve for present consumers the "beneficial" use they already are making from lakes and streams, and allot on an equitable economic busis water for future use as the need arises. Under previous drafts of the proposal, the present Resources and Development Commission would have been designated as the agency to carry out provisions of the bill. Barrett said sponsors had decided that a new agency composed ot persons familiar with water problems would be more suitable. As a result, the latest draft provide* for an Arkansas Water Control Commission composed of a member from each of the state's congressional districts, and seventh member from the stale it large. The commission would be appointed by the governor from list of at least 21 nominees recommended by a nominating commit^ tee. This nominating committee would he composed of 12 members representing various interested organizations and groups, with the dean of the University of Arkansas College of Agrculture as chairman. the new draft include elimination of a complicated fee system and substltuilon of a more simple plan, and elimination o/ a provision for a water master. It'li he up to the commission to decide on Its executive staff, Barrett said. All commission decisions on water Allocation will be .subject to judicial review, he added. Something to Think About 8y GERTRUDE D flOUMAN Comity Home Demonstration Agent Toy* Christmas toys arc now the chid thought of most children, but while they can also be dangerous. Today's toys nre gcncniUy well made and fitted to a proper age sroup. Christmas shoppers should take time to consider the age ot the children before buying. All children like to explore their toys, see how they are made, how they work. Today's toys arc mndc that children can take them apart and then fit them together. This type of toy is good for the child and develops muscle and eye coordination. But, there arc still many dangerous toys on the market nnd parents must watch for these. A friend may give a teddy bear wllh black glass button eyes to a one-year-old. These nre put In place with long pins. Many hospitals have reported emergency cases where children have been rushed lo the cmoriicn cy room — one of these buttons was swallowed. H can be extremely dangerous. AlthoiiRh the little toddler,' bare. ly able lo balance himself, loves such toys as soldiers, and horses, Ills age should bo taken Into consideration before buying. Spikes .sticking out to represent nuns or arrowy arc the dangerous tilings, if the toddler should tall, a sharp point could pierce his eye- hall or another part of the face. He could he lell scarred for life So it is only common sense to gel this lypc toy for the older child past, the stage of tvcqucHt fulls.
