Park Cited For Violation MONTICELLO The Lancaster Mobile Home Park here is one of 10 Indiana facilities cited for failure to complete monthly tests of drinking water. Federal regulations require that the drinking water be tested monthly. The U.S. Environmental Agency said that, because the water had not been tested in six months, the agency could not assume that the water supplied by the facility was safe for human consumption.

She said that she had finally obtained the forms from the health department and a sample was sent to the State Board of Health last week. WORD TRAVELS FAST IN THE WANT ADS 24. Airstream travel troiler. Self-contained, ready to trav. el.

The dealers blamed increasingly inefficient freight train service and a shortage of grain cars for the downfall of smaller grain elevators. According to Gordon Taiclet, Buckeye Feed and Supply, Monterey, the railroads are doing a good job on the major routes but have let the smaller lines decline, or are closing them. Fithian said there appears to be no trend in grain elevator bankruptcies in other states, and coneluded the problem is a state, rather than national problem. However, he did not rule out new federal legislation regulating grain speculation, blamed by some as a major cause for grain elevator bankruptcies. The grain car shortage first became a major issue about 18 months ago and has worsened since then, according to Fithian.
