Three recent events have galva- nized this concern into action. The first "nudge" came when the Public Works Acceleration Act was signed into law. Under its terms, the federal government will participate in certain desig- nated areas to the tune of 50 per cent on approved municipal proj- ects. Next, the state highway is cur- proved its last bond issue. One of V14W rently conducting an extensive these issues was for and traffic survey for this city. One of the areas it is investigating -is a new signal system to replace: the city's, outmoded traffic .control devices.

With federal assistance, the city will be pushing several programs ahead at- bargain rates. If all grants are approved, and indica- tions -here are extremely favor- able the actual cost of the com- bined programs, is with the city actually spending 000.

Two other members of the Cu- ban mission to the United Na- tions, a husband and wife, were- named as conspirators and furn- ishers of the explosives but were not arrested because of diplo- matic immunity. The' U.S.; 'delegation to the United Nations'quickly asked for theuvrecall to Cuba, saying their .action's were a most flagrant abuse of the privilege of residence in this country. The government accused the three under arrest of conspiring to gather information on U.S. mili: tary installations and to destroy, national defense materials, preni- and utilities in New York: Furthe'r details were not given.
