A request for sale of $20,000 In
bonds and continued work on the
Millrace was presented to the Eu
gene City council by representa
tives of student government here
The request, according to City
Manager Oren L. King, was turn
ed over to the council committee
on finance and parks. The delega
tion was assured, he said, that
cleanup would continue by the city
and that the whole matter would
be carefully considered.
The bonds were approved by Eu
gene voters several years ago but
have never been sold. Originally
they were to go with a sum of ap
proximately $2-1,000 donated by
Oregon students alumni and towns
people to renovate the race, par
tially destroyed by a flood just aft
er the war.
King told the senate early this
year that the funds donated had
been sufficient to repair the race
at that time and as a result the
bonds while still on the books -
have never been sold.
