To submit to them would be submitting to slow

UMBACH SAYS MURPHY PLAN
OF BLOCK PAVING IS NOT
ADVISABLE AT THIS TIME.I
Commissioner Murphy's program for
funds to complete the city's paving
project received a setback when
Henry M. Umbach, president of the[
parish board of assessors, declared it
would be "foolish" to inaugurate the
lot and block plan of assessment at
this time. It was through this plan
that Commissioner Murphy hoped to
obtain funds to complete the 192.3
Commissioner Murphy previously
had stated that unless some new plans
were adopted the city would be able
to complete only one-third of the
projects being considered.
Mr. Umbach added that he believes
the lot and block plan unfair to tax
payers because it taxes equally prop
erty of greater and less value. Com
missioner Murphy and Mr. Umbach
will confer next week with the hope
of finding some way of financing the
