The ruling Labor party, which has been in power eight years, has as good as scats. There is no reasonable doubt about these results, although the final count in some of them not yet in. Seven seats remain in doubt. (In London, the Australian News and Information Bureau, an jigency of the' labor government, ...mounced that labor had conced- ed defeat. It quoted Radio Aus- tralia as saving the opposition had won at least 62 scats, and perhaps CO.) Thus, Australia followed New Zealand in the British common- wealth trend to the right. A Happy Omen Robert Gordon Mezzies, the lib- eral lender, who will become Prime Minister, commented after hearing the New Zealand results lust week: "The socialists were brought to power in New Zealand, Australia and Great Britain in that order. This dramatic result seems a hap- py omen that they will go out in order." Great Britain must hold gen- eral elections before next July.

This condi- tion arises from the dumping into Ihe creek of raw or partially treated'sewage from the proper- ties north and northeast of the city limits. The raw or partially treated sewage is carried by .Sol- dier creek through Fort Dodgd thus creating within the city a; filthy, nauseating and unhealthy condition. The existence of raw sewage in such large quantises is to the life and health of the children who! play in that vicinity. It became so: bad last summer that the Isaac Walton league was forced to can-j eel a scheduled fishing contest for, the children.. "Health officials from ihn state: THE NEW MAN of health has no direct power. The situation however is such that Fort Dodge suffers from this and this council has determined for the good of the city it should lake such action as it can to stop it." "Last Resort" "A large number of these pro- j perly owners receive water ser- vice from the city. We do not be-i lievc thnt anyone dumping raw or partially treated sewage into Soldier creek can in turn in good: faith ask thc city to furnish him with water. As a last resort the council has therefore decided to L-ul off thc water supply from any offending property. The cily is under no obligation to furnish water to non-residents of the cily, even to those now receiving it. We don't want to cause any un- due hardship on anyone and be- fore any water is cut off we shall give the property owner notice of our intention so that he will have sufficient time to eliminsle the condition as to his properly and thus keep his wafer service. Fur- thermore we shall do everything in our power to cooperate with anyone who is elim- inate this condition. We do how- ever mean to cure this intolerable situation and we hope no re- ceiving a notice will make the mislakc of not taking it seriously. We must protect the children thc most valuable asset of the community."
