some, discussion at. last Tuesday evening'
meeting of the city council and has since
taken more definite shape In the form of
written protests to Mayor Dahlmnii. If
the city attempts to vacate the piopetty
and dispose of It according to tho present
plans there will be a strong remonstrance
from interested citizens.
At the last council meeting the uppi..

the matter are the efforts of Mrs. KUsa
Wlihrow, who owns a place Just south of
the piece of property. By acquiring the
lot In question Mrs. Wlthrow would en
hance her present properly to the extent
nf having a corner lot. She is willing lo
give the city and has been in tho
cout ril chamber on several recent occa
