(Photo-Courtesy Information Office) By BLUE BEAXHAEO Many questions have been raised concerning next Tuesday's $22 million county sports stadium bond election. To clarify some of the most important issues, a number of questions asked by Baytown area voters are answered in this article. The Houston Sports Association lias agreed' to guarantee payment of enough'annual rent to pay both the principal and interest on the bonds. County Auditor S. E. Bruce says this will amount t» about 5750,000 to $800,000 a year.-Many people wonder who the stadium will belong to after the bonds are Kiid. Both the stadium and the and will belong to Harris County. They will hold title from the be- jinning, and will actually only lease the stadium to the Houston Sports Association for the life of the bonds. Why doesn't the Houston Sports Association build the stadium itself, if they are going to pay for it anyway? This question has Bossing Port Houston Big Job m Houston.

With no outlay of tax money, the county will own the most unique stadium in the world, and will benefit from the millions of dollars which will be spent through the years by sports fans attending the games, and by convention groups and others at activities which will be held in the dome- covered structure. Many have argued that if the Sports Association finds .it is unable to meet the annual bond payment, it will have to be paid by the county. This is true though not probable. However, under present state laws, your taxes could not be raised to meet this ready taxing at its constitutional limit of SO cents per $100 valuation.

The Houston Sports Association would sub-lease the stadium to other groups to help meet the annual bond payment. Would the county receive any income from the stadium other than the annual lease payment? Yes, it would receive all money from the sale of seat options tor the stadium. A seat option, selling from $100 to $2,000, would give the holder first - call on a specific seat for a number of years, probably 40. He would still have to buy tickets for individual ,sporting. events attended. It would merely give him the convenience of knowing he has a specific seat reserved whenever needed. The seat options would bring in at least 52 million, ifttas been estimated, and maybe as much as $7 million. Since all this money would go to the county, a nest egg could be set aside in case it ever became necessary for the county to take over the bonds. A common argument against the new bond issue is that it .would lead 10 a ptivate stadfoun running a stadium built by the county. Thf* is true — but the sports group would be paying dearly for the privilege.

Smith Jr., commander of the Caribbean Sea Frontier, had been ordered from naval headquarters in San Juan to Belem, Brazil, "to be available to meet the Santa Maria if the ship decides to confer" with the Navy. • The orders to dispatch Smith came after a report that Galvao had sent a new radio menage to Dennison, but the detail* were not disclosed. A Navy public relations officer, James Harrington, told newsmen in San Juan, "you had better go to Belem. That's where the big story will break within 16 hours." He made the statement at about 8 p.m. Friday night. A U.S Navy spokesman said the Santa Maria had "drastically changed" course and apparently was veering away from the direct course it was taking toward west Africa. Dennison gave Galvao assurances the Navy would take no action against the Santa Maria if he carried out his announced willingness to release the passengers, who were trapped when the self- styled revolutionists seized control of the cruise ship Sunday in the Caribbean. Galvao, a former captain in the Portuguese army, and 70 armed followers boarded the luxury ship at stopovers in Venezuela and the Dutch West Indies. They proclaimed the liner "liberated" in their announced attempt to overthrow Portugal's strongman. Premier Antonio de Oliveira Salazar. Dennison made the safe conduct offer in an exchange of messages with the Portuguese insurgent leader without making any political commitments.
