League of failing to honor a r contract he signed to coach the WFL's Portland, Ore., fran- 'ChlKC. meeting last week, aldermen approved the planned expenditure of $377.721 in the Street Department, with most of this sum ($255.721) allotted for street materials, repairs a n d drainage work. Mayor Park Phillips said this large amount would be put into department because its regular funds will be depleted after being used to make road improvements in the city's two Urban Renewal projects. Part of the city's share of the cost in the Urban Renewal projects can be met by doing work on the streets in the projects. Since the projects are approaching completion, Phillips said he wanted to get all the city's work on them finished as soon, as possible. While revenue sharing money can be put into the Street Department fund, it cannot be used by the department to work on projects (such as Urban Renewal) involving federal as 1st a nee. In the public safety division of the Street Department, .OOO is allotted for the rephas- ing of traffic lights along Hwy. 71 through the city. Mayor Park Phillips. said the work will be done at the recommendation of the city's TOPICS (Traffic Operations Program to Increase Capacity and Safety) committee. Phillips said he will soon ask the council for 'permission i ,o advertise for bids on the work. NEW EQUIPMENT About $5,000 will be spent for ogging and cleaning materials, lew equipment will soak up Â»64,000 of the revenue sharing money. About $17.000 is budgeted for equipment repairs. Another highlight in the next r iscal .year's budget is the H5.000 set aside for a new am oulance equipped for intensive coronary care. Revenue .sharing 'unds would be used for only lalf the actual cost of the ambulance and equipment. Th other $15,000 would be raised from donations. The ambulance, which would be manned by specially-trained attendants and occasionally nurses and doctors, would ha\ r e a direct radio connection with Springdale Memorial Hospital's intensive care unit. Referred to as "an intensive care unit on wheels," the specially-equipped ambulance would be the second one operating in Arkansas. The F i r e Department will purchase $5,000 worth of hose with part of its $25.550 total allotment. Other expenditures in Ihe budget for the Fire Department include $2,401) for three portable radios for fire engines; $1,000 in alarm alerting radios; $750 in protective clothing; $600 n tires for vehicles; $500 in .raining aid equipment; and $300 for three manual resuscitators. SPECIAL BONUSES For administrative . offices, $25.800 was allotted in the revenue sharing budget. The majority of this figure consists of $18.000 set aside for use as Christmas bonuses for city employes. Mayor Phillips said he will figure the bonuses on the.basis of how long employes have worked for the city. A bookdecper for the revenue sharing money will be paid $4.800 a year from sharing Funds. The remaining S3.000 will be used for administrative office and building equipment. Of the $12,285 in revenue sharing money allotted to the Police Department. $8,690 will be spent on equipment. Lar^csl expenditure in this cale'gory is $6.000 for five two-way radios to replace old units. Uniforms, lockers, fire extinguishers, badges, and 13 electric shot gun holders are a few items to be purchased with the money. Chairs, an adding machine, desk calculator, file cabinet and floor mats will be purchased with about $570 of the Police Department's money. A locker to be used to preserve evidence will be purchased for the crim inal investigative division. Jail and building equipment o be bought with $2.520 of the department's allotment includes metal storage building ($1.500), 16 mattresses. 12 Blankets, and a portable public ctddress system ($325).

A new tractor mower will be purchased for $2.700. The remaining $1,321 will pay the salary of a part-time custodian. In presenting the proposed budget to Ihe council, Phillips said the city will receive Ihe revenue sharing money in four payments with the first to bÂ» received in October. 1974 and the last payment in June, 1975.- Aldermen unanimously adopted the budget at the recommendation of the Finance Committee.

"I disagreed with the fact he would not lislcn to Presidents Johnson and Nixon and would not even talk to Dr. Kissinger." Maheu said. "I disagreed with his tactics, such as recall movements against two presidents of the United States ... and payoffs to presidents of the United Stales." Earlier. Maheu testified t h a t Hughes ordered him to offer $1 million to President Johnson to halt nuclear testing in Nevada. "Isn't it true that the visit to Prcsiden Johnson was (to relay Hughes') proposal to offer $1 million to the government for a scientific examination of the consequences to human beings ... and that the proposal was conditioned on a delay in the atomic testing program?" Schlci asked. "The purpose of the trip was precisely as I stated it," Maheu replied. Schlei said he plans to call Breok-ln Reported Washington County Sheriff's deputies are investigating two break-ins Friday at homes on Route 2. Springdale.
