At t h i s . time we gel. our w a t n r from both smith and north of town, with treatment facilities at each point. Some thought (IMS linen ITM given to pnlarKfrtff the plant at. Johnson.

Engineer L. M. MrGoodvrin "' has informed Mayor Powell M. Rhea, that g^ an enfrfneerlntr and economic study shows S, fhnt. over'a r-Jriod of 20 years, it would lie ; cheaper by about J'18.000 to install a new nu treatment, plant at the lake, topother w i t h JM the necessary rnnnectinr flow line to the *i' city. But even this is rejected in favor of _ another program. p« Since it is obvious, writes McOoodwin. A ' that from « study of water supply sources TM thev wfll have to be operated as a unified , lc system and thst. each gupplv will have to · be made accessible to a treatment plant of ~jj maximum capacity, it appears lojrical to . treat all the water in one treatment plant. 1 A Hnzle treatment plant of m a x i m u m '·«- ( wir.ity on Mt. Seouoyah. with transmission lines from both West Fork and Lake Fay- *ttevil!f with remotely controlled pumps, would be far the most economical in construction and operation, he advises. Dnlv one set of operational employes would be required, and the numps would be controlled from the filter plant and the problems involved in choosing which source of iiipplv to USB would be no rreat*r ,than choosinir which push on a iWitch- board. Standby emnloves would not be re- nuired at either Lake Fayettevi!|p or West Fork to care for the pumps. "Thfa would be done by a city maintenance ennrineer who is already or) the payroll and nerving other city equipment," the engineer reports. The finsr.dnjr of the project is of immediate concern when this situation rs placed under consideration, of course, and it should be pointed out that there is a swcinl provision in the Arkansas statutes which provides that a five-mill treneral pb- liratinn lew mm- be voted hv the. neonle for water systems. This levy is in addition to. ^anrl ranimt hr used for. purposes fnr wh'c-h other levies sre provided hv s t a t u t e . That there is nor poin.c to be full aqrep- ment on the methods to he used in exnapd- nrj the present water-system, should be tnken as ^ranted. There may be severrl ways in which the city mipht'proceed, and to our there i« no inclination on any official's rart to lay down a rule which should be followed.

There are those who sircere'y believe t h s t some co.stlv mistakes have been made, and who would have t h e i r say before a n y t h i n c else is done, and a,l citizens should be afforded a chance to he nenrd. But the initiortant thing, as we see !t now i* to t h i n k about the situation together, so t h a t before loner we can actually becin plannrnp ways and means to expand thr system and provide an ample supply at THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round «T DREW PEAHSOH _ . --Shortly before Evita Peron died, U. 5. relations w i t h Argentina had reached such an all-time low t h a t eventual withdrawal of the American ambassador was under consideration. The low pojnt occurred July 10, w j i h the bombing of ihe Abraham Lincoln library in Buenos Aires, an official L'. S. library operated hy ihe State Department's cultural division. The American public, engrossed in political convtntionj. knew almost nothing about this in- cider.t. And the Argentine police appeared to know and care even less. Though the explosion Injured two U.S. employees and did SlS.fiOO worth of damage, the Argentine government merely shrugged its shoulder.-: over the o f f i c i a l protest of Charge ri'Affalrrs Lester Malory.

Wi'h the enJ of her tremendous hold over labor and with the A 1 .pentine economic situation worse t h i n ever before, there It almost certain to be a clash be- :v:«en labor and the military. * * * Sen. John Williams of Delaware, the man who keeps the Internal Jievenue Bureau continually on the buzz saw. is poine to probe further inm the Inleres!ing fact that Harold A. Lockhart. the collector of internal revenue in ' President Truman's home town and former a t - Inrnry for the president, suddenly turned uo with 139.400 in cash. Mr. Ixickhart carried his larqe bundle of cash in 5, 10, 20, 50, and inn-dollar hills rinwn to the Federal Reserve Bank in Kansas City on November 8. 1951. just a few days before he" hsd to fill out a Treasury questionnaire regarding his assets and income. He explained to John Phillips, ,7 r .. vice president of the bank, that he had been keeping the money in a safe-deposit box for some years and further exnlained to Senator Williams on January 13. 1D52. t h a t he had accumulated the cssh over a period of 35 years because he had suffered a loss in i bank failure and had not trusted banks since. Vice President Phillips of the federal reserve hank reported that Lockhart's money "had the appearance of having been packaged for some time, and some national banknotes were noted which have not been Issuible for circulation since 1935.' W W W Senator Williams, who looked Into the matter, found that the only bank failure in which LocXhart was Involved cccurrc;! . :D3I, about 15 years afier he claimed he had started' to accumulate a cash hoard. Furthermore, the f a i l u r e occurred to the bank in which Ixvkhsrt claimed to have had a safe-deposit box, which would have .neant that he would have had to transfer his funds to another bank when the first bank closed. However. Lockharl, when questioned by Senator Williams, could not remember rhans-n; :»fe-deposit boxes. The senator also asked him why none of the hills he turned in were Isrce- sizc currency. At the time the covernmen- changed the size of t h e bills he would have had 'o turn in his currency, yet Lockhart could n-' remember doing so. Nor could he remember c h a n c i n g gold certificates when the government called them in. Later it wss disclosed that Lockhart had sn active bank account all riunnc h- t i m e he claimed he was afraid to make Iwnk deposit Finally. Lockhart was chairman of a three-«ts!c wpr bond drive in 19-12. d u r i n g ".-hich he was asking oiher people to convert cash into eovern- mcnt bonds. Only on November 8. 1951, Hist before he was called upon to fill out a government questionnaire on his assets and his income d'd he brmp in S39.400 in cash and convert it in!o £24 400 in series G bonds and $15,000 in series E bonds. The Internal Revenue Bureau has been asked for an explanation of the matter, hut has marie no reply. Mr. Lockhart was formerly Preodent Truman's atsoir.ey when the latter was Jackson , County judge, and was the firsl caller upon th» president this week when he arrived in Kansas City from Chicago.
