r President Johnson should order a resump tion of the bombing of North Viet Nam targets in the absence of any Communist peace feel ers on resum Of 50 senators willing to take a position in an Associated Press survey 25 said they are against renewing air strikes at this point Twentyfive said they favor resumption of bombing most of them contending such action is inevitable If the bombings arc revived however only 18 think they should be expanded to include industrial and military targets in the areas of Hanoi the North Vietnamese capital and Hai phong Us chief port Senatorial

Seek county comprehensive plan By DAVE McMILLEN Comprehensive planning which already is molding the future of Mason City and Clear Lake is spreading to a regional basis as the result of a series of actions taken by Cerro Gordo County officials The first steps in obtaining a comprehensive plan for the un incorporated area of Cerro Gordo County have been ap proved by the Cerro Gordo County Board of Supervisors Although the scope of services to be offered has not been ap proved the supervisors have given their approval to the formation of a comprehensive plan They also have approved the hiring of the Mason City engi neering firm of Wallace Hol Schmitz to drawing in land Kastler and act as consultants up the plan Gary Claude planner in charge for the engineering firm Wednesday released a set of tentative services which will be submitted to the supervisors for approval Larry Brown as sistant county engineer and county administrative officer said he hopes to submit the scope of services this week The scope of services have been approved by the Cerro Gordo County Planning and Zoning Commission The com mission previously bad recom mended such a plan and the hiring of the Mason City engi neering firm If approved by the super visors the tentative plan will then become official and will be submitted for state and fed eral approval The tentative plan calls for an expenditure of of which twothirds would be paid out of federal funds and the re maining onethird from the countys general fund That will place the countys cost at ap proximately The tentative plan is geared for the unincorporated areas of the county We have no juris diction over incorporated areas but we certainly hope that those outside Mason City and Clear Lake will want to join with us in this thing Brown said Since Mason City and Clear Lake already are involved in comprehensive planning the county plan will be tied in closely with them Claude point ed out The incorporated areas in the county in addition to Mason City and Clear Lake are Swale dale Thornton Ventura Meser vey Dougherty Rock Falls and Plymouth Claude and Brown consider the future critical for Swaledale Thornton and Ventura They will be affected directly by In terstate 35 and the changes are going to be drastic Brown said The advent of Interstate 35 through Cerro Gordo County is cited as the countys incentive to implement a regional compre hensive plan as soon as possi ble The interstate will prac tically cut the county in half and will bring drastic changes PLAN Please Turn to Page 2 Machinists on strike at Algona of
