Those Who Dump Trash on Roads Face Prosecution The county commissioners are declaring war on the dumping of trash on county roads and high- ways. They say any one caught dumping trash on a road right of way will be prosecuted to the full extent the law and no ex- ceptions will .be made. The commissioners ask the co- operation of-the entire public to help them clear up one of the worst menaces they have en- countered. If you see any one dumping trash, be certain to get the car or truck license and re- port it to the county commission- ers or the sherifi's office. Dumpers will be prosecuted for damaging public property and endangering the health of the public. If you have any evidence against .those who have already put the trash on the roads or in the road ditches, you are asked to report it, and the guilty per- sons will be prosecuted. held for Chicago journalists. high school The question was raised by a nervous, shy little girl, whose query escaped most of the report- ers regularly assigned to cover a proponent of the president.

The alley between the Aldridge hotel and Criswell Funeral Home may be the next strip of paving to be'laid as men have been work- ing there for several days pre- paring for pouring concrete. The contractor hoped that the alleys in the downtown section of :own would be ready for paving so that he could move his equip- ment there from the east Main location. New gas lines are being laid in some instance while some new telephone lines are being aid. There are several additional paving projects that have been approved.

Should congress go along with the committee, many members believe, the proposition of wheth- er to keep the Jaw on the books through 1947 will be one of the first demanding a decision from the 80th congress when it con- venes in January. And because of intense public interest, they believe, the voters will demand that candidates for election to the 80th congress take a stand in their campaign. Current indications are the house committee next Tuesday will urge congress to do one of two things: Keep the law on the books un- til next February 15, with a ban against practically all new induc- tions but a requirement for con- tinued registration of draft eli- gibles. Or oxlend the law as it now stands, probably until March, 1947, but with a limit of 18 mon- ths on the service of any inductee. Meanwhile President Truman said that he is opposed to a pend- ing congressional program to ex- tend the draft for only nine mon- ths. He told a news conference in Chicago that he considered it necessary to call men for another year so that men who have been overseas an undue length of time can be brought home.
