Box 149, St. Louis, Mo. 63166. Canada to open Chinese embassy HONG KONG (AP) — Canada's embassy in Communist China will begin operation next week, Charge d'Affaires John M. Eraser said today. By JOHN STETSON Telegraph Staff Writer Godfrey residents will have a 24-hour a day police protection about March 1 under a resolution to hire a fourth policeman and purchase a second police car approved by the town board of auditors Tuesday. The resolution was approved unanimously by the Board "and it's a move that the residents have been insisting we make." Township Supervisor Dale Kennedy said during board discussion of the proposal. In September of last year the Township put one police car and three policemen to work in the township under a self financed program, but this has provided only 18-hour per day protection. "We are now ready to go to full - time around-the-clock protection and the people are entitled to it," Kennedy added. In addition to the special policemen hired by Godfrey Township, Madison County deputies also patrol the township. Part of the agreement with the county when Godfrey went to its special police "department" was the stipulation tha't the county not reduce the amount of protection they are providing for Godfreyites. ''The county sheriff's department is living up to this agreement," Kennedy said. "We have been keeping a record of the county cars and the times they patrol our area and it shows no reduction in coverage since we hired our own policemen." The special Godfrey police and their equipment is paid for by Godfreyites through a special voter-approved annual appropriation of $50,000 per year, which, according to Kennedy, will not increase with addition of the fourth policeman and a second car. "With only one car we have no vehicle on the road when its in for servicing or any repairs, " Kennedy said, a second car will solve ilns problem." The Board authorized Kennedy to advertise for bids for the new car and to make application to the Madison County merit board for Ihc new policemn. "As with the other special policeman, this fourth man must also comply with Ihc stipulation that he Jive in the township." Kennedy said. The board estimated it would be March 1 before the new car and policeman will be added to the department. In other action, the town board agreed to request the Alton school district to provide a traffic signal for the benefit of children crossing Gerson Street at McKinley School. The board was informed that state law stipulates that traffic signal lights are the responsibility of the school district as opposed to Hie township government. The town board had been urged by residents to promo;e installation of the s\;.\ni<\ lights. "I would like to attend the next school board meeting on Monday and make our request, but 1 have to atiend the Godfrey Township Utility Board meeting so 1 will send a letter instead," Kennedy said.

Outside city limits, but Carrollton dump, rat problem argued help safeguard your healtti...your home CENTRAL SYSTEM By EARL MAUCKER Telegraph Staff Writer CARROLLTON — Mayor Louis Ballard ran into opposition Tuesday from the aldermen over his ordinance request at a city council meeting for a no-open-burning policy. Ballard requested the ordinance because he felt it would force residents to seek a reputable hauler to carry refuse away from the city and dispose of it legally. Carrollton is faced with a serious rat problem, stemming from illegal dumping on a rural road 2 miles east of the city limits. Confusion arose over the city's responsibility to clean the dump site, since it was not within city limits. "This dump is a health menace and a public nuisance," Ballard told the council. "The city has the obligation to clean this up because it is affecting the residents of Carrollton." Ballard told the council that slate authorities from the environmental health agency had examined a sales barn and grain elevators on the east end of town and declared it was not the cause of the rodent problem. Ballard asserted that the dump attracts the rodents and requested action to clean it up. Ballard told the council that the city has jurisdiction over any "monstrosity," public nuisance, or health hazard up to 2^ miles outside city limits. "If you have jurisdiction outside the city limits why don't you collect sales tax from the sales barn?" former mayor Alan Roads asked Ballard. Ballard in response this morning said that motor fuel, state income, and sales taxes were distributed on a per- capita basis by state 2O PIECE SERVICE FOR 4 A beautiful pattern ... Olde Orleans.

"The problem of collecting taxes doesn't interest me now," he said. "What I am interested in is this health menace to our city and I want to do something about it." Associate Judge L. A. Mehrhoff, along with Tmvn- s h i p Supervisor Robert llindelang and members of the council decided it would be in the best, interest of the city to wait for the slate authorities to investigate and deter m i n c who has jurisdiction, and what action could be taken to eliminate the illegal dumping.
