AJLU U.S. funds to aid Scottsdale 'hogs' SCOTTSDALE - A $123,000 federal grant has been given the city of Scottsdale to underwrite the testing of a now trash collection system developed here, City Manager Bill Donaldson said yesterday. The money will be used to build and test the "litter pig" and "trash hog" concept of semiautomated garbage collection, said Public Works Director Marc Stragier. The concept is intended to reduce the number of men needed on trash crews and the collection time, Donaldson said. About $23,000 of the federal funds are earmarked for the "litter pig." a trash truck with a movable arm that scoops up 80-gallon plastic containers supplied by the city, empties the refuse into the truck, and returns the containers to their places. The remainder of the money will be used for a "trash hog" or portable dump which holds four of the "pig" loads. IF. G. Petersons iced 50 years Mr. and Mrs. Wendell G. Peterson, 1939 W. Morton Ave., will celebrate their golden wedding anniversary with an open house in their home from 8 to 10 p.m. Sunday. Hostesses will be Mrs. Bertha Stockhus, a sister, and Mrs. Myrtle Peterson, daughter - in - law. The Petersons were married June 23, 1920, in Minnesota, and moved to Phoenix in 1937. They have one daughter, Mrs. Pernice lies of Eugene. Ore., and one son, Roger W. of Phoenix. They also have eight grandchildren and one great - great - grandchild. Peterson is a semiretired gardener. The "hog" will he parked in an area where the collection trucks are working. Rather than have the "pig" make the one-hour trip to the dump to discharge its load, the trash is offloaded automatically into the "hog" which later takes it to the landfill for dumping. "This is a real timesaver," said Stragier. "Instead of being able to handle four loads a day — as it would if it had to go to the landfill each time — EACH "pig" working with a "hog" can pick up seven loads a day." One "hog" and two "pigs" are to be built with the money. The "pig" loading system also will match the loading system on trucks now in use. Donaldson said the program would be financed under a two-thirds cost grant from the federal government. However, he said, very little of city's share will be in cash because items such as crew training and evaluation arc counted as the city's participation. Stragier says the "pig," which can reach over cars parked in front of garbage cans, can pick up a can in about 10 seconds The smaller crew needed to operate the "pig" also helps cut city expenses, he added. Short causes poiver outage A short-circuit of unknown origin caused a power outage in an area of northeast Phoenix yesterday evening, the Arizona Public Service Co. reported. A company spokesman said the power was out for 35 minutes at the Meadowbrook Substation, 14th Street and Glen- rosa. The area affected was bounded roughly by Indianola, Palo Verde, and 15th and 23rd streets, the spokesman said. House bans union-shop rule from postal reform*pay bill Associated Press POLIO PREVENTION RIO GRANDE CITY, Tex. (UPI) — Health officers yesterday spread an innoculation campaign to 24,000 preschool children to,stop an outbreak of polio in the lower Rio Grande Vallcv. WASHINGTON - A prohibition against compulsory union membership for mailmen was written into the postal reform-pay raise bill by the House yesterday and an effort to scrap reform was defeated. Backers said the ban would maintain the rights of mailmen to join or refrain from joining unions. But opponents said it would throw the balance of power to management under the proposed new U.S. Postal Service and supersede state right-to-work laws. An amendment by Rep. David N. Henderson, D-N.C., to write the language of the executive order giving em- ployes free choice on union membership into the reform bill was approved by the House 179 to 95. An effort by Rep. Jim Wright, D-Tex., to scrap postal reform, approve an 8 per cent pay raise for mailmen and fire any who participate in strikes was defeated 105 to 57. The two votes were the first of two dozen expected before final action on the bill, scheduled for late today. The bill would create an independent postal service within the government to put the mails on a self-paying basis by 1978.
