Franchise Lost, Company Is Told SPR1NGDAU3 -- Tho Fay- cUeville Transportation Service Inc., was granted today temporary authorization to set up cab service in Springdale, replacing the Springdale Cab Company which forfeited its franchise, according Lo Mayor Park Phillips. The decision came a f t e r a l\vo hour secret session this morning between city and company officials -- a meeting at which the news media WHS not present. According to Phillips, Springdale C a b C o m p a n y was notified that Ihey no longer h a d a f r a n c h i s e with the city. Phillips declined to explain further. Aldermen had previously commented on problems with the city-wide cab service, The council's cab committee will review an application for a franchise submitted by the Fayetteville Transportation Ser vice and meet with the company on May 14 b e f o r e the council meeting, Phillips said. Subpoena (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) President of something he i probably aware of." he said. But Wakiic's questioning of Diar established that non-compliance \vith the committee's subpoena could be an mipeach- able of/ense if it was a willful act. "Was the failure to supplv Ihe tapes w i l l f u l ? " asked Waidie. "Yes," replied Doar. Settlement (CONTTNTJED FKOM PAGE i) f i c a t i o n . lhat spoke f l a t l y o! "the f o r t h c o m i n g settlement ol the Syrian-Israeli dis-cngage- ment." as if t h e r e were no question about it ultimately. Before lone there will be an o!hc-r Soviet-American summit in Moscow. Unless something h a p p e n s in the M i d d l e East deadlock, it will open under a h e a v y cloud. The R u s s i a n s are f-aaer for s u m m i t results. The a l s o want to m a k e up for loss of influence in Egypt by producing some sort of 'Soviet showcase in Syria. N e i t h e r is possible without some break in ihe impasse. Regional (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) not be? i is. ex] in Ihe recommended regional plan. If the KI'A considers the p l a n t obsolete because it is not n accord w i t h I he regional p l a n , Lawrence was worried the city would not he able to obtain f u n d s lo rcp;md Ihe present plant so t h a i the city can continue waste-water treatmenl u n t i l the regional plan :ffccl. M e l t o n said the E P A ·cprcpcnlntivc .said the federal igC'Ticy would have to funci iant construction so t h a t treat- nent can ho kept al least al he same level it has been until he regional plan is in 'peration. In reply (o a member 1 ? Hiostion, "Arc we- going to i d o p L the plan and then try to conic up with the money ncodcc put it into operation? 1 Melton replied vcs. A D O P T I O N U R G E D R a t h e r t h a n do nothing abou' ·adopting a plan and so be. in violation of federal and state aws, Melton recommended the commission adopt the plan anr .hen try to get the standard? 'or Northwest Arkansas easex "because, very f r a n k l y , o 11 entire food proce-ssing industry .5 at stake." Melton was referring to the 'act t h a t 40 per cent of the waslcwater treateci through nunicipa! plants is from indus .ry and the area's largest in :iustry is poultry processing. I Ihe standards arc not eased, the a l r e a d y exorbitant cost of thi recommended regional waste- w a t e r t r e a t m e n t plan would ris even higher, forcing the foor processing industry to leave th( area for a place with a les: expensive .sewage treatmen costs. But the plan needs lo be idoplcd. Melton said. That waj NWARPC would have the plai n hand while talking to EPA o f f i c i a l s about changing stan · l a r d s or allowing more flexibility i n meeting l e g a deadlines. Fayeltcville City Managei Don Grimes said he did no w a n t water quality standard: reduced to levels below wha ,he streams can handle bit rather he wanted to s e e the standards imposed with greate flexibility in the Northwest Ar tansas area. He called the recommende r e g i o n a l plan a "godsend 1 compared to w h a t EPA would require cities to do will their individual wastewate: treatment plants if they are t ktep their EPA discharge per mils- LESS EXPENSIVE Melton pointed out lhat the regional approach to waste water treatment is less costlj t h a n an individual city ap proach. "Working together can pay for this," ho said noting tbat the area towns ar fortunate to be geographicall; close enough to set up regional system. " Ejs^/whcre the cities wil ilteir proportionate share o the fotal cost, Mitchell repliei be didn't know. He said lh- federal government will provid 75 per cent of the conslnictioi costs hut none of the operatin. costs. One man asked, "How ca Congress pass a law (public la\ S2-5Q0), appropriate money fo it and t h e n freeze the mone\ and expect the cities to com up with funds?" He told Melton he d i d n ' t expect an answer t bis question. Mellon did point out tha adoption of the plan m e a n t th commission member citie could begin applying for Stc One federal funds provided t study approaches to meethi t h e legal water quniit deadlines. West Fork M a yor ,Ta me McKnight noted that his cit has just completed constructio of at wastewater trcatrnen plant, -- "One of the m o s modern in the state." He askei if il will be mandatory tha West Fork join in with the re gional plan. XO CITY FORCED Mitchell replied t h a t no cit; would be required to participat but (old McKnight t h a t \vhe: the city receives the newh issued discharge permit w i t h it stringent regulations. Wes Fork will either have to mak additions to its present f a c i l i t ; or hook on to the region a system. Commission member Dal Rice of Rentonville -- the online m her to cast a vote agains adoption of the plan -- har several questions for Mitchell He askocl why there had bcei no study showing the cost el fectiveness of a plan t h a t 1150. existing t r e a t m e n t plants "i the standards you w a n t lowerer Illinois R i v e r were at all w a s t e w a t e ICimnf Pi'.A lll CT.BB POStlJt FtyerterU.'e, Art WEMBER ASSOCIATED PRR-* Tie AsiM!i!ed Pr«i !r e=Li'.:e3 n- ciiiilvelv to Lh» use tor rep"b'a- Ucn of all local cewj prijtsj b LVi SrBSClUFTIO.N IUTTS Effectlvi Orto%*r 1. 1573 BOOM Per moots by a K=j copy iaijy 03 ^y Be IB U«*.

NO PAROLE Both Gibson and Lineberge pointed out that the life sen lencc given to Davis Wednesdaj implies no parole. However, i is in the power of 'he gover nor's office to commute th sentence to a specific numbe of years, in which case Davi coulct come up for parole. Lineberger explained to th TIMES that the sentence desig nated "life withou', parole" ma also be commuted, but it is th f e e l i n g that the governor's stal and the parole board will b much less likely to grant th commutation with that desig nation. Faced with the possibility o the death sentence, or havin the life without parole desig nation on h i s commitmen papers, Davis decided to Chang his plea to guilty, Lineberge said. In order to get a verdict guilty on the capital felon charge, the stale would hav had to prove that Davis kille Mrs. Vander-slice in a robber; attempt. The law provides t h capital felony charge for case of murder implying robber kidnaping, a n d - certain othe crimes. According to the crimina court docket.
