Lenz is authorized to receive ^proposals at" 2 p.m. Sept. 9, attd fe report the results of the bidding, with his recom. mendaUons, at the Septi 11 cotift cil meeting. , two Weeks ago the council rejected bids taken June 24 on the interceptor sewer because they were far in excess of the engineer's cost estimate of $957,066 on the project. The lowest bid at $1,498,763 was reported as 57 per cent above the cost estimate. It has been indicated that some changes in the bidding specifications will be made .before the new bids are taken. Initial time limit of June 30 for contracting for the sewer job Ir order that the city may qualify tor a federal grant of $250,000 has been extended to Nov. 1. A copy of a letter from t h e federal Public Health Service extending the deadline to Nov. 1 foi letting a contract for the soufti side interceptor was submitted o the council by Lenz. MFT Improvement!) The public works departmen was authorized to call bids on two motor fuels tax improvements, the Central Avenue repaving and E 12th Street blacktop resurfacing as soon as the Division of High ways gives final plan and specifications that have been submitted. The council also approved a su perseding resolution for change in the plans for the Central pav ing. project so that an 8-inch con crete paving slab and separate curb will be provided. Thi leaves the $30,000 appropriation for the project unchanged. T h Central repavement, from E. 4th Street south 'to Broadway, was made nevessary by storm damagi to the old "brick surface. The council also adopted supplemental MFT resolutions on two completed projects. One add approximately $10,000 to the orig inal appropriation for the Cul Main-Broadway intersection. Main-Edwards Widening The other adds approximate^ $2,000 the appropriation for the Main and Edwards Street widen ing and resurfacing project. Lenz explained that deficienc ppropiiation for the Cut*M a \ n- Broadway improvement is prin- ipally required to pay the railroads fdV Cut Street crossing im if elements, cbst of which couldn't be estimated at the time the plans were prepared.'.Bill of the rill- oads is $7,000. Mayor P..W. Day was authorized to obtain at $5,000 a portion of a lot at 6th and Belle Streets so that a better alignment caiixbe had t&t the paving of the W, 6th Street extension from Piasa to Belle. A resolution that the city from ime to time, at least annually, conduct auction sales of surplus equipment and materials, no longer of use to the city, was referred to the ordinance committee lor revision. City Counsellor J. W. Hoefert advised that no blank' et provision for such sales could be made, but that they would have to be individually authorized each time with a listing of the miscel- eneous property items to be disposed of. Recommend Vacation Report of the City Plan Com mission recommending the vacation of W. 8th Street, and a connecting alley, open the way for a federal post office project was referred to the real estate com mittee. The Commission recom mended the vacation be approved, but with a provision that the Council take steps to protect the city in event that the option on the property should not be taken up by the post office > department, and also that adequate ^compensation to the city for the vacation "be given due consideration." No action was foUnd necessary on'a request of the Civil Defense Commission,, for a reshuffling o its budgeted funds to total of $860 in order to meet necessary ex penses. City Counsellor Hoefen advised that in the case of the C-D commission, it was unre- quired that budgeted itemization of * its funds be strictly adherec to. This is because the statute contemplates that much of its expenditures may be ofi emergen ey nature for which to definite bud get estimates may be made.

Nixon told the West today not to be decieved by the apparent mellowness of Premier Khrushchev over the test ban treaty. He told a news conference that to believe Khrushchev's attitude meant relaxation of tension or progress toward ending the cold is the most wooly headed war thinking possible." Nixon asked: "What is Mr. UR Killed (Continued from Page One) sons for voting against the project, said he had studied urban renewal projects in Illinois and Missouri and found they "do not accomplish what they were expected to." He said he had not heard much about plans' for relocating the people who would have to rnovt from East End Place, but he had heard that the payments they would receive for their property "would not rent a standard home for one year, and what do they do after that?" "We usually think a project like this will benefit the people," Bailey said, (< but I think this is mass exploitation. This will only bene- some at the expense of oth- Khrushchev mellowing on? Go to East Berlin, to Budapest and other places behind the Iron Curtain and you'll find no evidence of mellowing there." He said that from his two visits to East Berlin Wednesday he concluded East Germany was the most tightly repressed police state in the world. "I told Communist officials shadowing me. that they were murderers," he said. Nixon pointed to the general clampdown on freedom in the East bloc, the amount of Soviet espionage around the world and the Communist offensive in Latin America "which is the greatest danger it has ever- been." > If Khrushchev really .wanted relaxation he could prove it by granting more freedom to Communist-ruled nation and calling off the worldwide Communist fit ers.' Wanted 8 Issues When Warren's repeated requests for a vote on the question were finally successful, Allen Heck asked that the resolution be sep- trailed arated into two parts. He asked agents for separate votes on the recommendation that a housing ordinance be approved and on the recommendation that urban renewal be submitted to the voters at the next municipal election. Warren alone voted against the election recommendation, saying that "the thing has been defeated already, .so why call for an election which would bring on more expense for the city." Observer* noted IJiat four of the five aldermen voting in favor of continuing with the urban re- subversion offensive, Nixon said. "I.know it is very easy to be a Monday morning quarterback, but I can point to two failures by both administrations to take action over Communist moves— the Hungarian revolt and the building of the Berlin Wall," Nixon said. Nixon twice visited East Berlin Wednesday. He made an unheralded visit Wednesday night and told a reporter he found that "Communism is a complete failure In East Berlin." He suid he found the East Berliners even more anti-communist than the Poles and the Hungarians. Heckled by Communists and by on a horde of security his scheduled visit newal projeot were experienced in local government affaUn, while only one of the eight voting against the program had had previous ex- pejflenoe In elected office. WftBW dell* and TimnwmM-e had jwrvfd on. tt» aty Council in tilt Met, and MoQonneU in a tor- mw fo oumlw tt»e county board. Mo- earlier in the day, Nixon decided to see "what life is really like, in East Berlin." Walking dimly lit streets, Nixon encountered East Berliners who svhispered "I'm no Communist, Mr. Nixon" and "our only hope lies in you Americans, '' then disappeared in shadows. Youths' in a night club cheered when Nixon told them, "I've teen in Budapest and I only hope you people can some day get at least the small amount of freedom that the Hungarians have." Nixon, visibly, moved by the East Berliners 1 reaction,-told The Associated Press ; fn an exclusive account of bis-; impregsipnB: "It was an iflHprgettabJe ex perience because alter! my first visit I wondered if the East German people mJght tech the will to resist that the Polish people and the HunprJaii'people liave in • demonstrated T ,. saw and Budapest to War- SUCCESS THAT HAS PUSHED VALIANT SALES UP SPHERE'S WHY: • BEST COMPACT BUY-VALIANT.
