The appointment of Mrs. Asa B. Robinson as a member of the library board was confirmed by the council. The footbridge along the old motor track was ordered closed on account of its unsafe condition until such time as it can be repaired. The material for some 18 or 20 crosswalks in different parts of the city has been secured and the walks will be built as soon as possible. Bert Cross has finished his con tract for grading and graveling Log Cabin street, accepted by the council and an ordinance passed levying and apportioning the cost against abut ting property. About the usual batch of claims were audited by the finance commit tee and ordered paid by the council. C. A. Elliott has filed an applica tion with the state corporation com missioner for the organization of aa 1 80,000 corporation to handle Fori agencies in this part of the valley. Mr. Elliott owns the Stewart Moto or company of Independence and the Elliott Motor company of Dallas ani it is his intention to combine these in the corporation, establish a third Ford agency at Jefferson and a fourth one at some other point in the valley. Confident that as the Ford repre sentative such an institution should prove a financial success, Mr. Elliott is enthusiastic over the possibilities of the venture. Only a part of the stock would be issued at the time of the organization, the balance to be kept in the treasury for use as the business expansion might require it. Independence is to be the head quarters of the business with toe general business cift e here and rhip ments made here and then distributed to the other plants. This would make it necessary to enlarge the Inde pendence quarters and add quite a number of employes to the force. Mr. Elliott in a statement to the Enterprise said yesterday: "I am very well satisfied with my present busi ness, but I believe that there is a wonderful opportunity for expan sion." Mr. Elliott will go to Los Angeles tomorrow and upon his return expects to perfect the details of the incorpora tion with a view of launching it shortly after the first of the coming year.

The deficit is in a measure accounted for by the fact that the price charged for the soup is less than the actual cost, and that about 30 percent c it is served gratis. A further in crease in the deficit comes from th fact that in addition to the sou., whole milk is served each day with out cost, to pupils whom accurate tests have shown to be under normal weight, and as a consequence, handi capped in their school work.
