Bromley Oxnam told the House Un-American Activities Committee today it should "frankly admit its inaccuracies and misrepresenta- tions" about him. And he called on the committee, in a statement prepared for a hear- ing which he requested, to halt "the practice of releasing unveri- fied and unevaluated material for which the committee accepts no responsibility."

All are figured on a monthly basis per cubic feet unless otherwise indicated: WINONA First 300 cubic feet at 50 cents, second cubic feet at third cubic feet at all over that 70 cents. WINONA First cu- bic feet, next cubic feet, all over that 90 cents, ALBERT LEA: First cu- bic feet next cubic feet. next cubic feet, next cubic feet, 90 cents; all over that 70 cents.

I Link Increase With Necessary Improvements Bond Issue May Be Required for Elevated Reservoir After Aug. 1, your water bill will be about 25 per cent higher, but there's no reason to get excited. Just consider the factors that prompted the Board of Municipal Works to seek (and obtain) approval of the rate hike from the City Council Mon- day night. Like most other price boosts, rising costs was a fac- tor. Metered water pumping costs have soared to about 83 cents per thousand cubic feet, while the minimum rate in the city is only j 14 cents per 100 cubic feet; next 70 cents, cubic feet at 12 cents per!

This is feet. next cubic feet, borne out by the fact that the last all over that, SI. (increase, and that of 33 per cent, was in 1947. Also to be considered is the pro- posed improvement pro- gram, which will be started shortly with the additional income. How- ever, the big items on the agenda would not begin for several years, until a bond issue had been made. Explain to Council Along this line, the Board issued letters to members of the Council, acquainting them with the .pro- posed improvements. The plan in- cludes an elevated reservoir on the south side of Lake Winona at a cost of and a new main from the reservoir to the ex- isting system.

At the truce site, things continued ito move at a feverish pace, two days.after the Communist agree- ment to go ahead with final prep- arations for signing an armistice. Marine Col. James C. Murray, who heads the U. N. staff officer team working on the truce line, had to rush from the staff officer meeting today to attend the liaison meeting as chief Allied liaison offi- cer. The Allied and Communist liai- son officers met 32 minutes and recessed without setting another meeting time.

And in case of contamination of water in the present underground reservoir by a flood of the Mis- sissippi, the city would only have a four to six hour supply of pure water. The proposed reservoir, would supply approximately a 24-hour reserve, which could be utilized while the main system was being repaired.
