P*J» 6, lAibbock, (Texas), Mornin* Avalanche, Wed., D«c. 5, 1945 City's Bond Program To Provide Many Needed Projects, Is Claim Progressively higher property valuations which will come as the city grows will keep the tax rate down and will offset to .some de- &.ee the costs that would accrue t< the city if the $5,894,000 bond proposal is approved by the voters next Tuesday, Robert H. Bean, attorney, declared in a talk Tuesday noon before the Optimist club in Lubbock hotel. Bean said it was commonly estimated that the proposed issue would increase tax rate to 40 cents on the $100 aluatipn. "Personally, I don't believe it will ever be that mrch because of the city's constantly increasing valuations," Lions club members heard two speakers refer to Lubbock's bond issue election in talks Tuesday at their luncheon at the Hilton hotel. "Dallas ought to come out here and get some real spirit," Dr. W. A. Cris % .vell, pastor of the First Baptist church of Dallas, declared at the outset of his talk. "Why, it'* .predicted that Lubbock will have a population of 100,000 in the matter of two weeks ... I had no more than arrived here when I soon learned how this and that piece of real estate was selling . . . I have also learned that you are soon to vote on a bond issue for vast public improvements . . . Let me add that money is not anything compared to the destiny of your city." Wood Also Speaker W. C. Wood, president of the Lubbock Kiwanis club, was the other speaker, detailing his remarks on various propositions of the proposed bond program. "Economically, we're still a big country town and there are certain responsibilities we must assume if v.'e are to furnish the people of this vast territory a great city," Wood said. Dr. Criswell, who is here for the Tech Religious Emphasis week, declared "It does us good to remember the debt America owes Almighty God ... How indebted to Almighty God we are for this great and vast land of ours with all its resources .. How indebted we are to Almighty God for the government under which we live .. . For on the personality of God cur f ore- iathers launched our great ship of state . . . We are indebted to God not only for our spacious land, our kind of government, but the character of our people : . . The strength of our nation lies in the religious convictions of its people." Spirit Is Piaii*d Wood declared that "the Lubbock spirit" had been responsible for the" growth and progress of our citj\thus far-but-next week we will be standing at the crossroads and we must decide whether we will go forward or starid'still. He listed the water improvement program as the No. 1 item of importance in the bond election and declared that "Lubbock has gone as far as it can without an DON'T, BE A SLAVE ' CONSTIPATION 'As Millions Do — Eat EgLLOGG'S ALL-BRAN * For Lasting- Relief -fCeSrtipated?

Wood listed the audifprium- coliseum project as next in importance on the bond program, declaring that Lubbock should furnish facilities for cultural and recreational activities of a vast territory. Airport improvements, fire stations and equipment, street improvements, street lighting, parks and recreation, city hall improvements, police station enlargement, city sto-.age and garage and the water softener plant items were also discussed briefly by Wood in his talk.

Brodie, Little Rock, Ark., Bill Carpenter, Dallas. Returning service men introduced were: Don Davis, Dale Vannoy and Pete Cheney. U. S. Diplomat Back After Imprisonment HOBOKEN, N. J., Dec. 4 Tyler Kent, 34, American career diplomat jailed by the British nearly five years on charges of larceny of an embassy document, arrived home aboard the British steamer Silver Oak today and declared "1 did take certain documents from the embassy to my apartment, but it was for the purpose of turning them over to the United States Senate." "I considered," said Kent, "that those documents contained information which the Senate and the people of the United States should know about." Kent declined to describe the documents or give their number, but said they "related to the foreign relations of the United States, and I don't want to be more specific at this time."
