L. KNICKMEYER ROFF (Staff) The of battle has cleared away, and the town of Roff is the proud proprietor, of a sewer system and sewage treatment "plant" of the most modern design. Officials of the U.S. Pub- lice Health Service, which participated in the cost of construction, were in Roff Friday afternoon for a final inspection and Results of their report will not be available for about a month, City Clerk W. W. Price said. Price added, "so far as I know, everything is okay." Certainly, so far as the sewers treatment facilities are con- everything appears to be okay. Take A Look Friday, a NEWS reporter ac- companied John Chapman, Pauls Valley, engineer who designed the Roff city councilman John Dunivin, county sanitarian Bill Price, and Ada sanitation superintendent Homer Reed on an informal inspection tour. Ditches and low spots over the town, where Dunivin said water had been standing for years, were dry as so many bones. And the first of the lagoon-type disposal. ponds was as fresh and sweet- jmelUng as any in the country. This lagoon type of sewage treatment is a relatively recent development, according to engi- neer Chapman, and is especially smaller '.communities because of "the small expense in- volved. Spent Roff paid for the land and for construction of the ponds. Chapman estimated that a conventional treatment -plant capable of handling the same of sewage would cost the city plus the continuing cost of a full-time operator to run it. The lagoon treatment simply lets nature do the work. Raw sewage is run into a shallow enough to allow for penetration of sunlight after which the algae does the work of decomposing solid matter. green water plants, require only water, and sunlight to do the job, Chapman points out. The three ponds at Roff are 1.8, 4.3 and 3.2 surface acres respectively. The first two are .de- signed to take care of a popula- tion of 900 (Roff has and the third was thrown in as a kind of bonus, raising the capacity to about Incidentally, Roff's population has already begun to increase, ap- parently because of the new sys- tem. City clerk Price reports that three new houses have been built and two more are under con struction. Residents Come Around And council chairman Dunivin says that even those Roff resi- dents who were opposed to the project at first have.come around to giving their approval. The Roff sewer project had a stormy career, with a three-way hassle 'going for some months be- tween contractor, engineer and city council. -Apparently the contractor, Paris Construction .ran: into more rock work than' it had bar- gained for-and failed to finish the job on schedule. A penalty clause provided 'a per day penalty against the contractor June 11. The job was not completed until August; and the penalty ran to Most of. the tumult and shouting arose over the question whether or not Paris should be held to the penalty, with-side- issues shooting off in all direc- tions. Dispute's Closed The dispute was finally Monday of last week at the reg- ular monthly meeting of-.the city council, when the council voted 3-2 against imposing -the penalty.

Decides To Aid India NEW DELHI, porting" a slight shift in Soviet attitude, Prime Minister 'Nehru said: Saturday the Russians will send-MIG21-jet fighter planes for India's'possible use in the unde- clared, border .war with Red China. Nehru told a closed.session of a consultative committee of Par- liament that-a- number of the jets would arrive in mid-Decem- ber. India put in the order for the jets long before the Red Chinese opened-an offensive Oct. 20 on two fronts in. the Himalayas along India's- northern frontiers. Six jets were believed to have been ordered for December and six more for delivery at an unspec- ified later date. The Russians, faced with wound- ing their Chinese ally, were at first reported to have reneged on the order. Moscow newspapers sympathetically, -supported the Red Chinese :in their drives to oc- cupy disputed border-areas in the Himalayas. But Nehru told the meeting there had been a shift in Krem- lin thinking in India's favor. Com- mittee members-did not elaborate on what Nehru had -to say about this. There was speculation he was-basing his. remarks on editor- ials in Soviet newspapers'which have -.taken a more neutral attitude recently.
