Sewer Utility Discussed
By Council; Mayor Reports
Tacoma's own municipal head
aches seemed gentle indeed Tues
day when the city fathers had a
chat in council meeting with
Deputy Mayor Frank Peterson of
Los Angeles, whose city covers
450 square miles to this city's
Peterson, whose job is executive
assistant to the recently reelected
reform mayor of Los Angeles,
Fletcher Bowron, expressed sym
pathy after listening in on another
discussion of Mayor Harry P.
Cain's big problem, Tacoma's in
adequate sewer system.
The need of a much-expanded
trunk sewer system in Tacoma,
about a $4,000,000 job, and the
probability that it never can be
obtained without setting up a
sewer utility in the city, was dis
cussed by the council. The mayor
submitted a lengthy letter to the
council bringing up to date the
progress toward a sewer utility
since Sept. 30, 1040, when he
named a civic sewer committee.
Will Submit Name
In response, Works Commis
sioner A. R. Bergersen said he
would bring before the council
Monday the name of some engi
neér qualified for the job of set
ting up a sewer utility.
“It #ooes without saying that all
citizens will not favor a sewer
utility,” Mayor Cain's letter read,
in part, “Perhaps a majority
would turn a ballot proposal down
but we will never know what the
citizens think until they are given
an opportunily to express an
Sewer utilities are in operation
in several cities, with the fees
usually billed in proportion to the
amount of water used by a resi
dence or business house. In Ta
coma, however, it is confessed
there is a new problem because
the city water system is part
metered and part flat rate,
Law Sanctions Utllity
A law passed by the last legis
lature ,at the instance of the Ta
coma Civiec Sewer committee,
makes it possible for the city to
set up & sewer utility and issue
bonds based on its revenues.
The Los Angeles visitor re
marked that his city has a huge
trunk sewer system carrying sew
age to the ocean and now faces a
possible order from the California
board of health to discontinue that
method of disposal. Added to the
problem is that the voters recently
turned dbwn a proposal for a
$12,000,000 bond issue for con
struction of a sewage disposal
plant, the only apparent alterna
tive to dumping in the ocean,
To Talk at Luncheon
Peterson, besides making an
informal visit in the city hall here,
came to Tacoma to speak at a
luncheon attended by representa
tives of the city's groups inter
ested in refugee problems and the
problem of race hatred in the
United States. .
Another visitor at the council
meeting Tuesday was Ivar Ceder
wall, representative of the Mark-
Time parking meter manufactur
ers, who reported some difficulties
in getting materials but promised
the machines would be installed
by Sept. 22, the date set. He said
some of the spring steel ordinarily
bought from Sweden had to be
substituted, and that some mate
rial had to be purchased from

Aluminum Plant’s
Delay Criticized
{Continued From Page One)
of a plant at Tacoma for produe
tion of aluminum by & new
Frank Eichelberger, president of
the Kalunite Co, which in turn
has endeavored for many months
to create a plant here for extract
;lng and processing raw aluminum
!om from proposed local mines,
testified that OPM officials have
{treated him “like a cross-eved
Eichelberger substantiated the
{the position of his company by
|testimony to the effect that al
{though Alcoa (the only producer
fof aluminum in the nation) doesn’t
{use his proposed process, the
| process has proven succesful else
where in the world; that there is
’m{flciem ore in the Northwest to
keep such a new plant in operation
| for a century of full production.
i He also pointed out that his
company is fully prepared
| with blueprints and commit
| ments from a staff of en
! gineers to operate the pro
' posed plant as soon as OPM
| permission is granted.
| Frank Walsh, industrial en
| gineer of the Tacoma Chamber of
Commerce, introduced testimony
substantiating other complaints
lthnt OPM is guided by advice of
Alcoa officials in matters con
cerning American aluminum pro
duction for defense needs.
| Gist of testimony on that point
| was summarized by Truman, who
| declared that ‘‘cooperation” be
’twnn OPM and Alcoa was hinder
ing national defense production.
“It looks from the testi
mony heard,” the committee’s
chairman sald, “that Alcoa Is
more interested in remaining
a monopoly than in saving
the country's national defense
Truman said that John L.
O’'Brien, general counsel for OPM,
I had evaded the committee's re
{quest for a report on the nation’'s
aluminum proeduction. Truman
said a second request has been
made, and if such a report isn't
forthcoming he will take “effective
steps” to get it
‘ Dr. Paul J. Raver, administra
tor for Bonneville dam, also testi
-Ifled and recalled his recommenda
tions to OPM last June for estab
| lishment of several new aluminum
*pllnta in the Northwest, including
i"" proposed Kalunite plant at
| Tacoma.
! He said he was told in turn
that all Bonneville power
would have to be used by a
single big aluminum piant to
be operated by ALCOA; he
called attention to legislation
‘ which prohibits sale of fed
| eral (Bonneville) power to a
single customer,
I At conclusion of Raver's testi
mony, Chairman Truman said the
story “has all the earmarks of a
maneuver by the OPM to turn
aluminum over to a monopoly.”
Because of delays and mind
changing in government selection
of a site for & new aluminum plant
and other similar maneuvers, Tru
' man pointed out, the nation has
!lost potential production of some
30,000,000 pounds of aluminum,
Other developments from the
congressional committee's session
included revelation that west coast

Tax Savings Plan
Notes in Demand
An increasing demand by tax
payers for the new U. 8. “tax
savings plan” notes is being made
upon local banks, it was disclosed |
Tuesday by Clark Squire, collector
of internal revenue, ;
The move in congress to lower
personal income tax exemptions
to $1,500 for married couples and
to $750 for single persons has
resulted in more inquiries for ap
plication forms at local banks, he
said, The plan was designed to
aid taxpayers in laying aside
money this year for payment of
income taxes next year or in 1943.
This is the last week during
which these interest-bearing notes
in varying denominations may be
purchased at face value, Squire
pointed out.
Notes may be used in payment
of incOme taxes after three months
from the time of purchase. Those
intended for payments in January
must be purchased not later than
October, Squire said.
545000 Additional |
For Project of NYA |
| To continue construction at the
Georgetown resident project, the
National Youth Administration of |
the state of Washington has been |
‘grmted an additional $45,000, |
George P. Sheridan, state admin
istrator, was advised here Tueaday.
While not sufficient to finish the
project, Sheridan said, these funds
will permit completion of units
now under construction. It will
mean there will no lnterrup-i
tion in the defense training pro- |
gram he conducte |
The Georgetown re- dent prOJ-I
ect makes it possidle for youth
now located where no tnmm"
facilities are awvailable to eam|
thcir board and room in addition |
to a small salary while receiving
training for jobs in defense indus
| tries.
| At present, youths at the rate
{of four to five a day are leaving
|the project for private employ
! ment mosily in defense industries.
j'nm takes place following an av
erage of three weeks of work ex
\perience and related training. i
1 The fact iz that the younger set
]amnng Japanese beetles, hatched
| this June, have taken to hitch
| hiking aboard airliners bound from
LaGuardia field here for the mid
| west. So great has the menace
ibecome that the U. S. department
of agriculture has had to station
'nn anti-beetle unit of three ex
iperts to inspect all outgoing
| planes and passengers at the air
-3 port.
? Popillia japonica, as he is call
{ed by his friends (which is why
lyou hear this name so seldom),
| made his unwelcome arrival in
!America from Japan after jump
{ing ship at Riverton, N. J, in
'1916. Since then this hard-shelled
| menace to crops has steadily eaten
his way about the country until
| now only the south and midwest
|are free of the scourge,
| The department of agriculture
intends that these regions shall
lremain free of the Japanese bee
itles. In the past month and a
half its agents have nabbed over
| 2300 of the pests aboard outbound
| planes and passengers.
| Japanese beetles are shrewd air
%lravelerl. Loathing cloudy weath
er, they won't travel unless visi
bility is perfect, ceiling unlimited.
They are also particular about
night flying, never show up at
!the airport after sundown or be
| fore dawn.
But once they are in the air,
they are good travelers. In two
| experimental flights, 69 beetles
| were carried between Pittsburgh
|and New York, at maximum alti
| tude of 9,000 feet. Only seven of
them passed out on the flight,
| That's why the experts give the
| planes such a thorough going over
| ten minutes before flight time.
| So if you're flying west from New
York one day soon and a strange
man says: “Pardon, madam.,” as
he fingers the shoulder of your
dress, don't slap him. He's just
| picking up a Japanese beetle who
