Doyle crowded into the mayor's office at Mayor Marti's invitation to tell the council, in effect, that they were not going to budge. Schimmel spoke first, stating that the council's ominitti - r of MeMaster.

Enck - son pointed out that the license requLfd filing of detailed plans before work began, and that work had begun with no plans filed, Schimmel hastened to assure the council that the plans would be filed "as soon as possible." Adjourning to the council chamber, the objector's arguments were heard Attorney George Craven spoke in brief concise statements to tell the council that he represented at least 127 North Lincoln property wners. that the group was not against the game of baseball, that it was against locating it at its present site. It W It I I M'lSANCE? "Baseball is not a nuisance in itself." Craven stated, hut it is a nuisance in a residential ( raven cited the bright lights to be on late at night, the noiss of cheering and auto engines Arhta people wished to sleep, both day and night, the hazards of traffic in the area, and the ft ils Of trespassing on private property, all of which would be attendant to operation of a ball park in North Lincoln. "Their only recourse is to sell their homes at depreciated values and move out." the attorney argued. "We propose to fight to the finish." Craven too asked if plans had been filed in accordance with the license provisions. Shortly after he spoke, plans were placed in Erickson's hands. However, they were not the plans desired and required, the director said. "If the council wants to cancel the license," Craven suggested, "that alone constitutes a ground." Kl Ml TTAL BY DOYLE L. R. Doyle arose in rebuttal to state that the f 1 o o d 1 i g h t s would be directed at the field, there would be only 60 games in Lincoln, all to be over before midnight, city police and park attendants would take care of parking, trespassing, and debris problems, and that the noise would not be as great as the stadium noise in the fall. He turned to the assembled North Lincolnites to say "We do not want to hurt anybody," only to be drowned in a chorus of vocal protests which required the mayor's gavel to quiet "In regar dto the park being in your backyards." Doyle, said. "I don't know, maybe I would not like it either." Again the chorus of voices came with "You know you wouldn't." Rev. C. E. Gabler, one of the ' ministers who protested a week ago. came forward to tell the crowd that after talking to the association leaders, he believed that the residents of North Lincoln were misinformed, misled, and had been encouraged to protest by someone with ulterior LTD.
