WHAT HONESDALE WILL HE RE

The borough of Susquehanna has
been directed to build a sewage dis
posal plant by the state department
of health under penalty of having
the state take summary action. The
town sought to extend its sewage
system and plans to conform with
the health department's regulations
were approved by Dr. Dixon, the
commissioner. It will require a
bond issue to make the Improve
ments and the voters will pass upon
it at the November election. Much
opposition has developed among"
some of the taxpayers and as a re
sult there are harsh differences of
opinion as to Dr. Dixon's sanitary
plan for the protection of tho Sus
quehanna river against typhoid and
other pollution caused by sewerage.
