without hesitation. Asked if the
present council form of Kenne
wick city government could be
changed to the city manager
form in any other way except
by the council’s vote to submit
it to the people, Mrs. Pearce
said it could also be accomp
lished bypetition. “If a petition
is circulated and is signed by a
sufficient number of people, an
election can be compelled on
the request,” Mrs. Pearce said.
Mrs. Eunice Bell, one of the
active members or the chamber,
got an endorsement of her sug
gestion that seakers for and
against the city manager form
be invited to apear at future
meetings. Other speakers were
Hugh Horton, ”Steven Selby, E.

Spaulding said the by-laws
of the chamber of commerce
would not allow the body to
take sides in a controversial or

its purposes.

Columbia Phofo Wins As
Basin Surplus Is Beaten
The Fancy Dans of Richland’s softball, the Gremlins,
took a large bitter bite of the apple of defeat Sunday night,
when the Columbia Photo Lab team from Kennewick
handed them an 8-5 defeat. It was the Gremlin’s first loss
of the season, both in'league play and in exhibition. ~
The Photo Lab team really put the game away in a
big second inning when they scored six runs, and they
added two more in the sixth for a clincher. Alexander, the
winning hurler, gave up 11 hits including a triple by
Meyers, thirdbaseman of the Gremlins who drove in two
runs. Both pitchers starred at the plate, Alexander rapping
out two for three for a .666 average and Ratliff the losing
moundsman batting a perfect 1.000, two. for two.
Ratliff, who got nicked for his‘
first loss, gave up but seven hits
in losing, but six booted balls,
two in the tragic second, made
the difference. Danny Cook, one
of the standout players of thel
game, drove in Photo Lab's two
runs in the sixth. when his tri
pled against the centerfield
fence. _ _
Although he gave up 11 hits
to the, Gremlins. Alexander kept
them well scattered permitting
the losers to score only one run
in the third, fifth and sixth until
Meyers drove in two in the sev

Bond Issue
(Continued from Page 1)‘
000 of general ob"
Wilson said it Was ifié'gfidggfi‘gfi
of the bond COmpanies that til];
city’s resources would allow
more than $850,000 of revenm
boggs. t l ue
e 5 ate aw places a 1
15 mllls on the city reallflttagf
but the people may vote an we
ditional 5 mills for utilities Such
as water systems. The recom.
mendation of the bond compan.
ies was that 3% mills be levied
to service the $150,000 indebted
ness to be incurred by issuing
the general obligation bonds.
The Haner report sets up three
million dollars as the city’s total
valuation before recent addi.
tions. This valuation is expect.
ed to grow from year to year.
To start with, about 5400.000
will come out of the total amount
of bonds issued to pay for the
two water systems 5250,000
plus contingencies for the PP&L
system and $140,000 plus contin
gencies for the RID system. The
revenue from the water system
can not be used to pay off the
general obligation bonds.
Haner said he recommended
the larger issue to care for con
tingencies. Councilmen consid
ered scaling down the total proj
ect in case that should be neces
sary in the financing but nobody
expressed doubt that the com
munity could take care of the
The action of the council Tues
day night was the boldest step
the present city government has
taken and it immediately met
with hearty indorsement of sev
eral Chamber of Commerce lead
ers who have been urging the
council to get off the “payoas
you-go” system of city _financing.
At the council meetings were
Mayor Keolker, City Superinten
dent R. C. Rector and City Attor
ney Kenneth E. Setter, besides
all councilmen except Council
man Charles Neil. All council
men present voted tor the elec
tion. '
Attorney Thorgrimson of Port
land, who was retained by the
city sometime ago to handle
the bonding work, was to be no
tified immediately of the coun
cil’s action and was to be asked
to come 'to Kennewick and start
the legal work in cooperation
with the City Attorney Serier.
Wilson thought that property
now outside the city limits but
which would be taken later
could also be taxed for the bond
millage but Serier said- this was
not possible under state law.
City officials said the plan in
mind. is to consolidate the two
water systems it the people vote
for their purchase and to expand
and improve the systems into a
modern and adequate system for
all needs of the community for
years to come.
The council will meet again
Tuesday~ night when new steps
towards calling the election will
be taken. Legal notice must be
given 30 days prior to the elec
tion. Haner estimated that it
would take about eight months
to complete the project after
started. .
