Thursday, January 31, 195? THE WYLIE NEWS Near The Shores Of Lake Lavon! 1956 BUSY YEAR FOR ARSSY ENGINEERS IN TEXAS WATER RESOURCES WORK For about ten years now Texas (has been plagued by the drouth and its crippling effects upon the welfare and economy of its peo- ple. At the same time, Army En- gineers - constructed dams have been ready as silent sentinels to provide flood protection when na- ture's ever-repeating cycle of drouth and floods makes their op- eration as flood barriers vital. Constructed as multi-purpose projects providing for both water conservation and flood control, nine Texas reservoirs under the Fort Worth District of the Corps of Engineers already are serving the State. During the past year, cities and entire industries have relied upon some of these projects as much needed sources of water supply. Hords Creek Reservoir in West Texas served the city of Coleman, once plagued by droutJh, for water supply purposes. Similarly, San Angelo Reservoir on the out- skirt...

Near The Shores Of Lake Lavon! THE WYLIE NEWS • V. ■ ■ .1 ■ • . . ■ Thursday, January 31, 1957 CONGRESSMAN JIM WRIGHT INTRODUCES BILL TO AID CITIES' WATER PROBLEMS Congressman Jim Wright of Texas has introduced a bill to help states and cities promote the construction of long distance wa- ter pipelines. The bill would authorize the Federal government to purchase a portion of the bonds issued for this purpose by local units of gov- ernment.. It is designed as an aid to cities of all sizes, with a provision for assistance to Interstate Compacts in which two or more states would join in such a project. Wright, a member of the House Public Works Committee, said he believes this is the next logical step in solving the increasingly critical water problem. "We are entering an era in which we must add an entirely new dimension to our water plan- ning," he said. "Underground wa- ter tables are falling, and no longer can we assure" adequate supply simply by erecting dams and impoundments." "M...

mil Thursday, January 31, 1957 DISABLED PERSONS AND OTHERS TO GET BENEFITS UNDER AMENDMENT TO SOCIAL SECURITY INSURANCE LAW The beginning of 1957 marks an important development in the social security insurance program. About three million members of the uniformed services will come under the law; many totally dis- abled children over 18 will start getting monthly payments; self- employed lawyers, dentists, and some other professional people will have completed their first year under the program, and many farm landlords will be able to report their 1956 income from farm rentals for social security purposes. "With the start of 1957, old-age, survivors, and disability insurance becomes a significant economic factor in the future of nearly every person who works for a living," Z. E. Avery, district man- ager of the Dallas social security office, declared today. Benefits at the end of 1956 are being paid to 9,200,000 persons at the rate of $485 million a month.
