A task sir a a a a flapper Fanny by Sylvia 1 Cora 137 by no service inc. T m. Rec. U. C. Rat. continued from Page one Engineer listed 26 projects completed at a total Cost of $762,452.97, toward which various Federal agencies contributed $710,734.57. These projects. Or. Meyer pointed out have involved work on 186 Miles of ditches repair of 32 Miles of levee and construction of 27 Miles of Road. They have improved the efficiency of the districts drainage system have provided additional Security against floods and have made possible the Sale by the District of Over 25.000 acres of tax forfeited lands for a consideration of $524,517 92 and on which the annual anticipated tax Revenue to the District is Over $40,000. More works pending in his report or Meyer said a the securing of this Large amount of Money which has enabled us to do All of this work is due very largely to constant Contact with the spa office in Little Hock and the army engineers offices in Memphis and Washington by Clifton h. Scott receiver and the commissioners of this District. Every Opportunity has been seized to get the governmental agencies to come Forth and help improve and work out the affairs of the District. We believe that our District has had More work done by the u. S. Engineers and has secured More governmental Relief from various agencies than any other District in this state All of which has been beneficial to the taxpayers and land allotments have already been made for further levee and Road work in the District which will bring the total government contribution considerably above the $710,-000 already expended. Debt settlement arranged throughout the period of the receivership the Board of commissioners of the District which now consists of b a Lynch and v. G. Holland of Blytheville and j. H. Crain of Wilson has had the cooperation of or. Scott in negotiations looking toward a settlement of the districts debt. A final agreement with the protective committee representing the bondholders was reached last summer and when its terms Are carried out. Probably before the end of the month the District s debt will be reduced by More than 50 Lier cent. Under the agreement the bondholders will receive 52vj cents on the Dollar on the face value of their Bonds. Delinquent interest amounting to More than $1,000,000, will be cancelled. Payment will be made with the proceeds of a $1,669,500 loan from the reconstruction finance corporation release of which is expected at anytime and $367,975 ii Cash now on hand in the districts Treasury. More than 90 per cent of the Bonds Are now in the hands of the protective committee at St. Louis ready to be turned in As soon As the r. F. C. Loan is released. When the debt settlement is effected the District will have remaining in its Treasury a substantial sum for maintenance work settlement of the debt will be followed As soon As the necessary Legal formalities can be met by discharge of or. Scott As receiver. The District May continue for some time in the hands of the Federal court with the commissioners As receivers but such an arrangement. If resorted to at All will be Only temporary. For All practical purposes settlement of the debt will leave the District in a position to stand upon its own financial feet and to fulfil its intended functions without the necessity of imposing undue burdens upon its taxpayers. One major problem remains to be solved that of adequate flood Protection for those i it options of the District along big Lake and Little River. The United states Congress has authorized a program designed to end that danger for All time. Actual accomplishment of that work will eliminate the last apparent obstacle to the Prosperity and Progress of the District. A Ray up it u by to top the cooking school viol in mrs. M e.
