Council Balks at Change In Lease oil LT. Depot Alton city council member! balked at immediate enactment • of an ordinance. to amend terms of a 20 - year lease to Junior Service League of the former I T. Passenger depot near the foot of Piasa Street Wednesday night.

Aldermen Maitland Timmer- miere, Clifford Dabbs, John McConnell, and William H. Warren opposed the change in the lease, recommended by Chairman Newell Allen of the real estate committee, contending a '20- ( year period was too long without I the city being able to recover the i property. As discussirn waned, Warren commented: "It is evident the council opposes such a long lease. We are not actually giving anything away by the lease. But the council already' has set a precedent in franchise discussions against giving long term grants of any sort and for that reason I am opposed to the amendment." Timmermiere suggested offer- ing a 5-year lease. The lease was then laid over to 1 allow time for renewed negotiations. Prohibitionists Ask Repeal of Equal Time Laiv ST.
