Nixon a soviet visit begins on thursday and will last a week with probable Side Tours to such cities As Yalta and Minsk. Coming on the heels of a five nation trip to the Middle East the Moscow Summit serves to focus attention at Home on the presidents interest and accomplishments in the foreign Field. Critics suggest that Nixon Hopes thereby to offset his watergate troubles and to improve his chances in Congress of surviving the impeachment drive.

But it lowered its sights when a Kissinger Mission to the Kremlin in March did not result in the breakthrough needed to expand upon the pioneering 1972 Salt pact. Now Secretary of defense James r. St Slesinger and other senior u. Officials seem confident that Nixon a visit will result at least in a partial ban on underground nuclear tests and in an agreement in principle to limit the deployment of new soviet missiles with multiple warheads.

The last Issue of the observer was dated March 31,1972. By Rachel Riggsby announcement thursday of the approval of $2 million in Federal Loans and Grants for the John Flannagan water project is a most encouraging step in the Long proposed water project for Buchanan and Dickenson counties. Hailed by one official As the real beginning of the six year old project the funding will allow the bringing of w Ater from Flannagan i Ake in Dickenson county into Buchanan county for eventual distribution throughout major portions of the county. The John Flannagan water authority headed by Buchanan county supervisor Willard w. Owens will receive Farmers Home administration Loans and Grants totalling $1,025, Kkt for the construction of a water filtration Plant at Flannagan Reservoir in addition to storage facilities and water transmission lines. Additional fila Money totalling $1,070, was approved for the Buchanan county Leiblic service authority headed by s. Charles Ratliff. These funds will finance construction of 12 Miles of water transmission lines from the filtration Plant to Irater in Buchanan county. County administrator Edward a. Matney said Friday the funds should make it possible to bring the water As far As Vansant within the next three to five years. From Vansant Long Range plans Call for the water lines to go up River to Oakwood and Down River to Grundy Harman and big Rock. A the people of Buchanan c county should be very very pleased with the Federal support in this a Matney said. credited the a Active support of the Fra representatives in this area and also praised the a tremendous boost a Given the project by Cumberland plateau planning District. The proposal to use Flannagan Reservoir As a source of water Supply for 60 per cent of the residents in Buchanan county was first announced in 1968 following an eight Rno nth engineering study of possible water and sewage development in the county. Results of further studies since that time have concurred with the original report naming the Dickenson county Lake As the most convenient and reliable source of water available and the one most economically feasible to use. Currently less than 15 per cent of the county a total population is served by a water treatment and distribution system of any kind. Surveys reveal that there is not a source of water either surface or underground within the county that is suitable for a county water Supply. About 90 per cent of Buchanan a population is now depending on Wells As a source of water. However most of the Wells in the county contain too much Iron manganese Hydrogen sulfite and other chemicals. Often there is a Cor bin. A All of these objectionable chemicals. In addition to the problems encountered by the unusable Quality of much of the water there have been reports of Gas seepage into Wells and a number of Wells have been sunk or otherwise altered by Shaft and other mining operations in the area. because of the above factors engineers Long ago ruled out the possibility of using an underground source for a county water Supply. After Flannagan i Ake was selected As the most logical source of water for Buchanan county further studies resulted in the development of a regional water Supply and distribution system that would serve both Buchanan and Dickenson counties. In August 1971, the Cumberland plateau planning District proposed a four phase plan to eventually solve the severe water problems in both counties. The first phase of the regional water system got off the ground during 1973 when a $400,000 Eha loan and a $350,00 arc and Eha Grant were approved for the development of a water distribution system for the town of Clintwood and the Mullins Ridge Community lying Between Flannagan Lake and Clintwood. Actual construction work on this phase of the project has already begun. I
