The Water Supply What is the water situation in Kavette- vilie? ' " Right at present, the supply is irle- quite. In fsct, the supply of witer »viil- ·ble both in White River aouth of town ·nd Cleir Creek north of town, where we get the water we uie, It imply adequate to, *erve the needs of a much larger town than we now have. The facilitien for getting it into the homes and bunrneage", of the users, however, muni be expanded some time in the near future. Engineer L, M. McGoodwin, a former alderman in Fayetteville and previously chairman of the Water Committee, has ~ summed up the nituation in a letter to 5JMa,vor Powell M. Rhea. He bring* out Kthat hi 1947 the city had a water itipply jfteport prepared, which estimated that the :-;«o»t of an adequate water supply, together x'^ith the necessary treatment, and trans- J.flilssion facilities, would cost something |$ver $1,000,000.

When t h i s Is available, we can cut clown on the use of the reserve supply in Wilson Lake ) n the south. The city does not. want lo use up a! the iupply in the south lake, for t h n t would mean we would be dependent entirely on the Lake Favetleville supply which would not be adequate, anrl also would leave u« nothing to rail upon in case of an emergency. It is becoming very evident t h a t while we in Fayetteville have an a d e q u a t e supply of water in West Fork inrl Lake rayettaville, our transmission lines and present treating facilities should be expanded to meet the ever-erowinp need Citizens need to begin thinking along this line. W* will continue a discussion of t h e matter in subsequent columns in this ·pace. THE WASHINGTON Merry-Co-Round ·f DHBW KAMOM Wnhln«lon--Whjle the politicians hive been w i l r h i n u li:e conventions, some other people, in- cludiu* th? Air Force, have been watching i m-sleriou" rash of flying saucers. Furthermore, the Air Foice. lonj ikepliril about flyinc tiucert his now made some officiil and important admissions. Admission No. 1 is that Ihev have now detected something that looks like flying saucers on rsd«r at the same lime l h a t people have claimed they saw flylnjt saucers. In other words flying saucers are not just cloud freaks or hallucinations. If so (hey could not he delected on a radar Admisiion No. 8 is that flyinj saucers could possibly be space ships from another planet. The reason for this admission Is that it will soon be possible for us lo build a spare ship to visit lhe moon if wp are wlllinc to spend the money for research and construction. Our rurrenl research inlo atomic power and luper-ionic speeds already has progressed so far that it is definitely known tuch a ship can be buill. but the bin expense would come from creatins almosphere Inside Ihe ship In support human life while traveling from one planet to the other,Therefore if we are this close to Interplanetary travel. Air Force officers admit that a more advanced civilization could be keeping this planel under surveillance through flyinj saucers. Admission No. 3--It has not been announced, but scientific observation posts have been set up in New Mexico, where we are testing guided missiles, to track flying iiuceri ilso. A number of flying saucers have been seen in Ihe Southwest, and since trained specialists are already on thi Job in that irea with the latest scientific gadgets, the Air Force has nrdnred them to watch for flying saucers ind track them scientifically. Jn addition, the Air Force has Instructed its 14-hour air observers lo watch not only for enemy planes but flying mueers. Furthermore it has «et up ipeciij cameras on Its radar screens to keep i iilctorlil record of flying siucers or my other strange objecti rutting across the screens * * * Finally Wright Field, at Dayton, Ohio, Ihe center of all Air Force remrch, has been instructed lo chirt all flying nucer pattern* find out whether their light behivlor Is ilmllar. and whit characteristics they seem to have in common. This was itiriMi only two months *co and no similar pitterns have yet been rioorted except for the peculiar fuel that more flylni; saucers have b«*n observed around U.S. atomic centers ind around Writ:ht Field than anyplace else. This could he because observers from another planet were Interested in our atomic and air development, thniuh the Air Force thinks it's more likely to be because the population around lho?e bases Is more sensitive to something strance in the iklei. However, while Air Force officials are lak- Ing evary precaution to solve the mystery thev line wirn that the first flying saucer was seen by the Prophet Ezeklal who reported seeinj a flying wheel in the heavens. The Air Force has tracked down thousands of finlastlc reports from that, of George Koehler of Denver, who reported blond, beardless Ihree- foot men from Venus, to the movies take" bv Nick Mariana of Great Falls. Monl. The beardless men turned out to be a hoax, and the movies turned out to be pictures of two hlgh-flvine jet fighters. So, while Ihe Air Force Is doins everything . noss.lble to.solve the mystery, it still has Its collective fingers crossed. Tn« administration began working Iwo weeks ·go lo nettle the steel dispute so President Tru- min or Phil Murray could announce it at Ihe Democratic convention. That may have been why a special price concession was offered the steel industry by the White House at lhat lime despite Truman's veto of (he price IncrcBso proposed last March by Charles E. Wilson, lb e defense mobiliier who resinned after Truman reversed him. Here is the Inside story of (he netoliation which began two weeks before the convention and at first blew up in smoke. About a week before the convention U S Steel's Ben Fall-lew went to the While House snd Informed Defense Mobilizer John Stoclman- ' I f you'll give us a worth-while price increase I will guarantee to have the strike settled within one hour of my return to Pittsburgh." "What do you call worth while Mr Fair less?" Steelman asked. Fairless said he wanted a price boost avi-- a«ins JS.6S fnr all types of steel. Sleelman finally cave Fairless an assurance that the government would permit the $s 1,5 boost, then urced Fnirless to relurn to Piitsburso immediately lo settle the strike "within an hour" as promised. Sleelman ronfid-nll.v passed Ihe good news on 10 both Roger P u t n a m and Ellis Arn;.ll. The next day. however. Sleelman was a b r u p t - ly surprised by a long-distance call from Fairies-, "I can't settle this strike for SS.fiS-pcr-ton increase," he said. "Th union has just increased i:s demands. 111 need a bigger price boost." Sleclnun then phoned Phil Murray to ask about the "new union demands." In blunt Unguaae. Murray told Sleelman thai Ihe union had not altered ils position one iota. Murray prn . ceeded to prove his point by reiteratina the union position.
