PAGE 12 Idle Hotel Eyed As Aged Home The Washington Hotel, which closed Oct. 31, may be converted into a home for the aged, an Indianapolis banker reported last night. Benjamin H i t z, assistant vice-president of American Fletcher National Bank and Trust Company, said the bank, acting as agent for owners of the property, is negotiating with a hotel brokerage firm for the sale. Hitz said he did not know what organization was considering buying the building because he had dealt only with the brokerage firm. No sale price for the 17-story building at 32 East No Added Taxes Needed To Pay Lawrence Bills The Lawrence City Council will meet at 7:30 p.m. Monday to consider additional appropriations with a twist. The meeting in the Lawrence Youth Booster's Building at 4749 North Richardt Street will not result in any extra expense to taxpayers. The council will increase certain classifications in the general and street funds by $7,750, but also will decrease other classifications in the same accounts by exactly the same amount. James L. Gardner, Lawrence clerk-treasurer, explained that some accounts in the general fund in which additional money is needed to pay bills due in the remainder of the fiscal year, will be increased. The money will come from other accounts which have available funds for which there is no immediate need. Anderson OKs Law To Halt Strikebreakers Anderson, Ind. (Spl.) "Professional strikebreaking" was outlawed here last night by an ordinance passed unanimously by the nine-member city council. The ordinance, which would forbid recruiting .of strikebreakers by an person or firm not directly involved in a strike, was praised by a Madison County union leader. Norman Goodwin, president of the Madison County United Auto Workers Council, which represents more than 23,000 workers in General Motors Corporation's big Delco Remy and Guide Lamp plants here, said it is the first such ordinance in Indiana. The vote came after a 40-minute closed conference with Jack Campbell, city attorney. It had been pending since May 14, held up for revisions recommended by Campbell. The ordinance calls for fines up to $300 and jail terms up to 30 days for violators. Board To Accept Bids On Bonds For School'Aid Avon, Ind. (Spl.) The Washington Township (Hendricks County) School Building Corporation will accept bids Dec. 5 on $065,000 in refunding bonds to be used for refinancing the 6-year-old Avon Elementary School. The school system is paying 5 per cent interest on a bond issue sold in 1957 to finance school construction. The refinancing is possible under a law approved by the 1963 legislature where interest rates exceed 34 per cent and pay them off with lower rate refunding bonds. School officials estimated $136,000 could be saved if the new bonds bear interest at a maximum of 3 per cent. Charlie Hughes This is my special for fodoy.

It was closed by the Alabama and Ohio Realty Corporation because of unprofitable business. I.U.ToName Buildings For Four Alumni Bloomington, Ind. (Spl.)
