ment of City Councilman C. W.
Williams who-said at the Old Set-
tlers ' Reunion that Lake Hulas
dam spillway must be repaired at
a minimum cost of $6000 or dam-
age later might result causing the
dam to break. Mayor W. C. House
said that week that up to date
no damage had been done to the
dam Itself but the spillway Is M
a bad state aha must-toe repaired,
otherwise serious damage may rs-
; Mayor House said that the first
thing that the City will have to ’
do Is employ a competent engineer
and get his advice on Just what
steps should be taken to repair
1 House said that if the repairs
: are made immediately, it mag
save a lot of cost and that the '
City cannot afford to take any
risk of endangering the water sys-
I Mayor Nouse said the situation,
at present is not alarming, but IB
' something that needs immediate ,
attention and that no steps should
be taken until a competent en-
gineer had passed on the matter.

Is one of the purest Of any city
In Texas according to MSIW
House who toid that the State

the report on the damage to
the spillway has nothing to da
with the quality of water which
has been classed as A-No. 1, Ik

by the State Department and had
no reference to the purity of the
aeaaion of Uquor for ourrvMu* of
