to place a business establishment
at the corner of Rice and Ever-
At least five persons at the
meeting asked to be recorded as
not being in favor of having a
business establishment on that
Carl Mantey, who lives near the
proposed structure, stated that to
keep Mr. Strickland from build-
ing a business on that property
was one of the main reasons for
joining the City of Bellaire.
Mr. Strickland countered by

he was in the city.
At this point Mayor Madison
Rayburn asked Mr. Strickland

posed for the area.
Mr. Strickland said that he was
not ready “to make public what

the proposal of the planning
board for that particular terri-
tory, it will be impossible under
Bellaire laws to construct
type of a business there.
Very little other business was
conducted at the council meeting.

Ewing Werlein, chairman of the
school board, when asked after
the meeting whether or not there
would be any senior students at
the new school, said:
“If it becomes necessary to use
some of the rooms for senior stu-
