This property houses the City- County Health Department and the Ada Chamber of Commerce. The Council also seated a new member. Earl Parker, representing Ward 4, submitted his resignation, dated Dec. 27, and Sid Spears, well-known rancher and businessman, was unanimously named as Parker's replacement. In recent weeks, pressing business has kept Parker out of town much of the time and he has been unable to at- tend meetings. He felt it was not fair to continue under such a situation and accordingly submitted his resigna- tion. Spears, who has been serving the city as a member of the Metropolitan Area Planning and Zoning Com- mission, was given the oath Ideal Plant Cuts Back Production Ideal Cement Company will cease production temporarily at the Ada plant on Jan. 15. Layoff for about 110 men follows-immedi- ately. However, in the opinion of company officials, men and the city will not feel any economic hardship from the layoff because of state and company benefits for the employes. David 0. Howe, plant manager here, issued the following state- ment Wednesday night: "We sin- cerely regret the necessity of tem- porarily curtailing production at our Ada plant. The curtailment will become effective Jan. 15. Al! employes affected were notified Jan. 3. "The state unemployment com- pensation and Ideal's own supple- mental unemployment benefits program will be available to all eligible employes. Employes will retain all benefits as provided in the company's group insurance plan. "The plant's shipping facilities be kept in operation, and the moment the market for ce- ment in the area justifies the resumption of full operation, the plant will again be placed in pro- duction. It is hoped that produc- tion can be resumed in to 6 weeks."

When a vacancy occurs on the council, it is filled by a majority vote of the remaining rr-Tibers and the replacement then fills out the term of his predecessor. Most of the evening's discussion centered around the old clinic huilding. Value Estimated Dr. H. B. Yagol, representing the clinic, said his organization earlier had secured the services of an out-of-town appraiser. He estimated the worth of the prop- erty at Dr. Yagol noted that the building on the property was of no value to the clinic and would have to be removed. The council had secured three loca'l appraisers and used an "av- erage" of their findings as a base for negotiations on possible sale of the lot and building. The aver- age value fixed by local apprais- ers was This figure, how- ever, included the building on the premises. "When you remember that the clinic's appraiser did not con- sider the building and our ap- praisers did." Councilman Dave Howe said, "we are not so far apart."
