The structure is going up at
a cost of about $228,504. Since a

and other improvements in con-
struction are possible.
The board also is expected to
hear a report on additional land

Key contended that the county
would have to invoke a law
which would force people to vac-
cinate and confine their dogs.
“It is my experience,” he added.
“that you have to force people to
do these things.”

break of rabies has thrown fear

estimated that less than half the
dogi were vacclnated^^
Mrs. Percy LaGrappe said the
trouble came from dogs being
dumped in Bridge City. “They are
dumping dogs there from Port
Arthur or elsewhere,” she said.
A voice from the rear chimed
in, “Shoot ’em all.”
And, Mrs. LaGrappe contended.
“If people don’t think enough of
their dogs to vaccinate them and
keep them up then they ought
to be picked up."
Commissioner Ernest Walles
gave assurances that something
would be done. “We are going to
do something and you can be sure
about it,” he promised.
At the same time Commissioner
Walles offered a $25 reward for
anyone bringing In information
which would lead to the convic-
tion of anyone who dumped a dog
