The court held on June 24 lat Act 274 of 1971, which au- lorizes state legislators to be eimbursed for expenses in- urred while performing offi- Eal duties between General assembly sessions, was con- titutional. That decision overturned a uling by Chancellor Murray 0. Reed of Pulaski County. Reed aid Act 274 was uncon- titutional and ordered state ien. Virgil T. Fletcher of Bent- n to repay the ?2,950 he had eceivcd between the 1971 and 973 legislative sessions. Roger C. Mears and Bob icott, the Democratic and Re lublican party chairmen of Pu- aski County, who brought the original suit as taxpayers, filed t petition for rehearing with he Supreme Court Wednesday. Fletcher was one of four senators sued over expenses, but le was the only one affected by ·he interim expense aspect ol the case. The other three were "reshmen senators in 1973. The Supreme Court said in its decision that Mears and Scotl ailed to overcome the basic presumption that the acts ol mbltc officials were done in !ood faith. Attorneys for Mears and Scott said in the petition, however, that all previous Supreme Court rulings stated that there was no presumption that a trustee -- which is what they said an office holder was for public funds -- has handled thi ·rust fund properly. The attorneys argued tha Fletcher had testified before Reed that he did not know htm the money received from tin interim expenses was used. Vandalism Reported Vance Arnold of 223 N Church Ave. told Fayettevill police that the windshield of hi car .was cracked early Wcdnes day morning as he and his wif were driving on Hwy. 62 west. Arnold said his car was tra veling east when two teenager standing on top of the railroa underpass threw something a his car, shield. Nixon Extends Education Bill For Veterans WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Nixon signed legislation today to give veterans an extra two years to use their education benefits and prevent four million of them from losing their benefits as of July 1. The ones who faced loss of heir benefits are those who erved between 1955 and 1966. There were 285,000 of-these in chool in June and the Veterans \dministration's education ben- fits chief. Bob Nooner, says he sn't sure how many are going o summer school "but 80,000 is a good ballpark figure." The Senate passed the bill lime 26 and the House June 11. Veterans who served after .966 will have 10 years after ;hfiy leave service to use their lenefits, instead of eight years. Veterans who served between 955 and 1966 now will have 10 'ears after June 1, 1966 to use heir benefits. The current education bill was made law on hat date and gave them 1 retroactive coverage. Since the July 1 checks for ,he 1955-1966 group attending Team Action Saves Life Of I Winslow Youth SPRINGDALE _ Rescue workers, a medical team and (city police combined efforts Wednesday morning in saving :he life of 17-year-old Wayne Griffin of Winslow. Griffin slipped into a grinding apparatus at .the George's Feed Mill on East Robinson Avenue about 9 a.m. Wednesday and remained trapped from his thighs down for one and one half hours. Under intensive care. Griffin is listed in serious condition today at Springdale Memoral Hospital. Head nurse, Margaret Holzwarth, who was at the scene, said doctors are pleased with his progress but that his life is still in danger. When the ambulance arrived at the scene, attendants immediately requested the hospital to send a doctor and intra- gen and phosphorous. When these nutrients enter lakes and streams, they act as a fertilizer, promoting plant growth. Rapid plant growth precipitates the early death of a lake by cutrophication w h e r e t h e oxygen needed to sustain fish ife is removed by plants. If the effluent were sprayed or flood-irrigated onto the land, :he nutrients would fertilize it, thus saving farmers the expense of purchasing nitrogen and phosphorous fertilizers, crops would be bigger, better, and richer in protein. Annually the nation uses 2.25 billion gallons of crude oil to produce nitrogen as an agricultural fertilizer--nitrogen that municipalities w a s h into streams and lakes in effluent. In land utilization of effluent, the treated wastewater percolates through the soil where roots and particles absorb the nutrients and break up the bacteria. One teaspoon of soi has a surface area of six acres to which matter can adhere. After passing through the soi layers, the water is purified to the point where it is acceptabl for drinking. Furthermore, using the lane to complete wastewater purifi cation processes is a less costly method than conventional treai ment. Secondary treatmen (wastewater treatment in twc stages) does not remove .the nitrogen and phosphorous. Eve the expensive tertiary treat ment (three stages) does no remove all the nutrients Marsh, who Just completed a casibility study on wastewater lilization on land In Norman, ikla.. said his firm figured the ifferences in costs between ·astewater undergoing tertiary ·eatment and being used on le land for Norman. Neither ost figure reflects the costs of perating and maintaining the xisting secondary treatment acility. If wastewater were to e used on land, it would equire a certain amount of urification first in order to 11 a k e it non-toxic and aodegradable. Initial cost of setting up a ertiary treatment system for Gorman was estimated by Marsh's firm a. $10.5 million he said. For land utilization ol vastewaler. the cost-- without ncluding the possibility of the city buying the land it sprayed the effluent on '-- was $3.1 million. Amortization, operating . and maintenance costs for 30, years at today's prices figured at $3.8 cents per 1,000 gallons wastewater in a tertiary treatmen system compared to. six cents Mr 1,000 gallons when effluen s sprayed onto the land, Marsh said. But throughout the movie: and discussion afterwards, thi warning that land utilization o wastewater is not a panacea not always the solution, wa: repeated. L. M. McGoodwin, a Fayette v i 11 e consulting engin pointed out that Northwest Kansas' soil does not hold w well. The building . of holdln. basins for the effluent (t contain it until the dry seaso when it would be used fo irrigation) would be difficult, h said engineer Ar wale The eplic area's problem with tank wastes leaking hrough to underground water oiirccs and 'polluting them Mints out-the trouble with the egion's rocks and porous soils vhich do not filler as well as everal feet of soil would. ;·' M a r s h then noted the ossibility of applying the vastewater sludge onto a large ract of land on which crops nd grass were densely planted, 'he plants, over a long enough period, could filter the wastes, le said. . ,." In any case, Marsh said studies need to be done', to [ e t e r m i n e if wastewater utilization on land could be undertaken in a . specific geographical area, such as 'Jorthwesl Arkansas. . But, he maintained, .the lutrients in the water need to be reclaimed as a resource nstead of put into the streams vhere they act as pollutants. 'In a few short years," he said, 'people will be clamoring for the wastewater rather than, trying to get rid of it. This will come after they learn how to handle it." DR. JAMES R. HUNT TAKES PLEASURE IN ;. ANNOUNCING THAT DR. WARREN C. MASSEY WILL BE ASSOCIATED ' WITH HIM IN THE ';·] PRACTICE OF DENTISTRY FOR CHILDREN Dr. summer school could 'hot be irocesscd until Nixon signed he bill, they will get them late. Sooner said the computer operation was set to move i diately.. venous equipment. At the same time, the fire department dispatched its'"rescue truck'. While the rescue squad worked to free Griffin who remained conscious throughout the ordeal Mrs. Holzwarth administered two pints of blood and started 2,000 cubic centimeters of intravenous fluid. Dr. James Capps, Jr., and r. Edward Wheat, both of Springdale, worked with Mrs Holzwarth in stablizing Griffin's condition .boosting his morale and giving medie'aton for the pain. Dr. Tom Coker, a bone specialist from Fayetteville, arrived shortly before Griffin was freed. Fire Chief Mickey Jackson said non-sparking equipment had to be used to remove Griffin s legs because of the danger of setting the youth's clothes on fire. Police participated in the omt effort in making blood uns from the hospital t o ' t h e icene. According to feed mill authori- ies. Griffin was cleaning the eed disposal grinder when he slipped and fell into it, catching his legs.
