"I say decide what you want to do, put it up lo Ihe people and do it." Shmidl said he felt resistance in the plan to Barrett Slalion, coupled with some expected resistance in Crosby, would defeat the plan lo build a high school norlh of Crosby. Shmidl said he felt Howard's suggested alternate, Scheme 4, a plan to add on. to existing facililies to meet only the most pressing needs of the school district, had the best chance of being approved by voters. He said the Crosby school district, under its present freedom-of- choice plan, cannot be sure where it needs new school facililies. He earlier said he felt that a central high school will eventually be built in the Crosby school district although Ihe district is not ready to build it now. "I'm not in favor of building anything thai would inlerfere wilh long range objectives," said Shmidl. Bul Howard said he couldn'l see a central high school — ever — in the Crosby school district, although some day in the future it might have as many as four high schools.

Trustees polled themselves on their individual opinions about building plans, and all of them differed. Pelrick earlier had suggested a plan to the board to build a new elementary school in Barrett Station, plus a new band hall and auditorium for the high school facility, to build a junior high complete with an aduitorium, and possibly a gymnasium, on the presenl school district football site, and to move the football field to a central location where a track and field house would also be built. (When trustees met Tuesday night in a closed meeting they approved the purchase of a 10- acre tract to build a new elementary school at Barrett Station, but Eaglelon said Tuesday night he had voted against it because he feels that it would be unnecessary, provided the present barrel Station junior and senior ligh school was converted to an elementary school and a new central high school was built.) Eaglelon favored building a new central high school, and a similar opinion was expressed by Trustee Truman Reed. But Reed, who said perhpas he wanted too many "frills," avored converling the present Crosby and Drew High Schools to unior high schools, building a new Barrett Station elementary school and building a vocational school at the present Crosby Junior High School site. Board President James Ewell said he at first had favored adding on to present facilities )ut was now "confused" about which direction to take. "1 don'l believe it will be long before we have one high school here," he said. "I just don't relieve it will be now. Where it will be I don't know. I do think the football field should be moved." Spence is already on record as favoring only classroom con- slruclion al Ihe present time. Woodard likes a plan similar to the one presented by Petrick. Pelrick urged the board to come lo some decision on a building plan, bul Shmidl iavored more discussions before reaching a decision. "1 don'l think if we had 20 more meetings we'd be any closer lo a decision," said Pelrick. But Shmidl, who came on' the board onty a few months ago, said, "We've only spent a couple of evenings on these plans, and we're going to spend (2 million." The board finally moved to adjourn al 10:30-p.m. on a split vote of 4-3 with Eagleton, Woodard, Shmidl and Ewell voting to go home. Trustees agreed to meet again Feb. 13 to discuss the building program. W. C. BUTLKK Baytown Ex-GI Commendation Medal Winner Wiley C. Butler, 1307 Strickland, recently discharged from ihe U. S.

While supervising construction of the University of Virginia, Thomas Jefferson surveyed the site with pegs and twine, calculated the brick and lumber needed, hired bricklayers and carpenters and sent a scholar lo Britain to recruit professors. Voting - (Continued Prom P*(e 1) Commissioners Court, according lo ihe bill. Sen. Brooks told The Sun Thursday that he hopes by this fall that voters will be able to cast absentee ballots in branch areas. "The bill itself is most important to cities like Baytown," Sen. Brooks, pointing out the difficulties in distance and in traffic congestion. "Two groups of people who will be most helped by it are the older people who don't get around much in this fast traffic or have no means of transportation, and also the working people who find it difficult to get away into Houston. Often these people lose their votes." Sen. Brooks said a rough draft of the bill was sent by County Clerk Turrentine. "We worked with the Legislative Council on this bill," Sen. Brooks said. Arrangements will be worked out lo provide absentee voting headquarters in Baytown, the senator concluded. The absentee votes possibly would be cast in the justice of the peace precinct courtroom. Employers will spend $100 billion on employee benefits this year, ranging from private pension funds to transportation to and from work, a report compiled by the Chamber of Commerce of Ihe United States reveals.

Texas High Court To Hear $300 Million Estate Case AUSTIN (AP) Supreme Court — The Texas laid today it will haur arguments March 5 in the prolonged battle orer the laoo million South Texas estate of SariU Kenedy Eatt A full trial on two wills is pending in the district court at Kenedy. The appeal which the Supreme Court will hear involves a fight between two banks of control of the estate pending the outcome of the district court trial. Mrs. East died Feb. 11, 1961 She left two wills, one written in 1948, the other in 1960. The earlier will left her fortune to various individuals and Roman Catholic institutions controlled South Texas. The 1960 will gave control over a foundation she had created to Christopher Gregory, a one-time Trappist monk known as Brother Leo, and to a New York industralist. Claimants and others involved in the 1948 will contend Brother Leo unduly influenced Mrs. East to execute a new will. Mrs. East was a granddaughter of Mifflin Kenedy, a riverboat captain on the Rio Grande who founded the 400,000-acre La Parra Ranch in South Texas. The I960 will was probated in 19E1 but the claimants under the 1948 will attacked this court decision 16 months later, finally getting the 1960 will set aside in 1968. The Alice National Bank, executor under the 1960 will, appealed the order setting that will aside and asked for a temporary injunction against Copus Christi Bank and Trust, which was named temporary administrator of the estate by the probate court that voided the last will. The probate court refused to grant the injunction, but the Corpus Christi Court of Civil Appeals reversed the lower court. The Alice bank contended the TICKETS TO EVERYWHERE!

"We agree with the contention of the Alice National Bank that the probate court does not have jurisdiction or power to remove an independent executor unless he is first required to give bond and falls to do so," the appeals court said. The Corpus Christi bank contends the Alice bank's appeal did not suspend those portions of the Probate Court judgment that designated a temporary administrator "to preserve and conserve the estate."'
