Tuesday, MarcK I. I96A 400 Acres Added To Area Designated As LBJ Park AUSTIN (AP) The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission added nearly 400 acres to the land designated as Lyndon B. Johnson State Park in an unannounced Jan. 6 meeting. The Associated Press learned Monday that the commission voted unanimously to add 399 acres of farm and ranch land to the 245 acres designated for the park Nov. 17, 1364. Land designated for the park lies between Texas Ranch Road 1 and U.S. 290, much of it immediately across the ranch road from Preident Johnson's LBJ Ranch. The newly designated land lies immediately to the east of the original park area. It extends about two miles to the junction of U.S. 290 and the curving ranch road. Commission Chairman Will E. Odom said the special Jan. 6 meeting was "an administrative conference among members." There was no public notice of the meeting. Minutes show the decision to enlarge the park site was unanimous. One of the three commission members is A. W. Moursund of Johnson City, a confidante of the President and trustee for the Johnson family's business interests while the;, are in the White House. "It appeared to me we shoulc get more land in the park to take care of future needs anc demand for the park. It was very essential," Odom told The Associated Press.

COMPLETE RETURNS LIFE Street Leveling Work Is Studied By City Manager Possibility of negotiating a I contract for some street leveling! work on unit basis will be in-| vestigated by fee city manager. The «ty was scheduled to open bids at 4 pjn. last Wednesday on street leveling, but none was received. At the last meeting. City Manager Fritz Laahara reported to the city council that the contractor who was expected to bid had an illness in his family. This perhaps was the reason that no bid was received. Lanham asked whether it would be legal for the city to negotiate a contract on unit basis. City Attorney George Chandler replied that he believes it would be legal, since the city had complied with the law by advertis-i ing for bids. ! The city budget for 19^66 contains $4,000 for contracting street-leveling work and $1.500 for purchase of a mud jack. City officials hope to eliminate many of the low areas in con- crete 'streets, which now hold rain water for rather long periods. An effort wffl be made to contract some of the leveling work before buying the mud jack so that city officials can study the effectiveness of this method of eliminating the low areas.
