The new structure, for which •ground was broken several days ago, is located on Broadway at Avenue X. -Rev. H. G. Gantz, pastor of the church, reported that members of the building committee decided to proceed immediate*^- - with the completion of only ihe educational portion of the structure, thus eliminating from immediate planning the erection of the auditorium. Initial Cost S55.000 Estimated cost of the educational building is 555,000, which is the figure shown in the building permit. The auditorium will cost about that much more, Recording to estimates. The hopes are, according to the pastor, that plans can be worked out so that there \i-ill be no interruption in the work now started until the building is completed in Jts entirety.

PH. 7341 (By The United Press) AUSTIN, Feb. 20. — Measles, the malady now most prevalent in Texas, is running true to form. A form sheet is plotted by the morbidity division of the Texas State Health department just as meticulously as the ''form players" watch and record performance of norses on a race track. Reports of 2,025 cases .were charted this week. Shaded into a map of 25-i counties in the =t?.ts, these cases sustain the doctors' theory that an epidemic of measles one year is reflected directly on the next year's record Mo Great Spread Seen The West Texas' area, for instance, again is showing flare-ups of measles. First there is a primary appearance in a countv In about two weeks there is a princi- there will be no great spread into adjoining counties. Hare Cases Cited Rare cases have been found of persons having a second attack of measles. Therefore, after an epidemic in an area, it is not likely to occur again for four years, the 'health department believes. In four years, enough children are born to provide suspectibles for a new spread of the disease. In southeast Texas, the department warned, there may well be a spread of measles because a susceptible group has been built up there since the last measles epidemic. Care against typhus also was indicated by the morbidity report Information to the department indicates at least 40 cases of typhus m the lower Texas Panhandle .i*.. t it j T *«"«-*- — •••"- i^.vci. j.c-'vdb ±-annanaie wave, followed by a secon- area.

The total for the first two months last year was 3592,234. Enough applications actually are in the office of Jim Reid, city buildinu insnec- tor, to insure that the figure" for the corresponding.period this year will be substantially larger. The record that has been maintained this year it was explained is due entirely to defense housing Of the permits issued, 333 have been for defense houses costin* $442,750. W. C. Rowden of Dickens, second highway patrolman in this district to enter military service this month, was inducted into the Army this week. This district now is three short of the 16 patrolmen who were to be stationed in the area, it was said at district headquarters here Due to shortage of patrolmen replacements may not be made soon.

Whifacre OsJeopalhic Physician and Surgeon Dial 5642 511 Myrick Bldg. ^ / By HILLIE'R KREIGHBAUM United Press Staff Correspondent ^ WASHINGTON, Feb. 20—Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt resigned today as assistant director of the Ofiice of CiviHan Defense so that "those who wish to attack me" will net be able to make the OCD suficr from her continued presence in the agency. Mrs. Roosevelt, who had been assistant director in charge of voluntary participation since last Sept. 29, submitted her regisna- tion, effective immediately, in a letter to OCD Director James M. ^andis. She said she knew that the OCD was in the hands of "completely competent people." To Prove Usefulness Mrs. Roosevelt said that by retaining her OCD post "I would only make it possible for those who wish to attack me, because of my beliefs, to attack an agency which I consider can prove its usefulness so completely to the people, that it should be free of attack in order to render its max- mum service." She added that "no individual s more effective than a good program." In mentioning critics of her "beliefs," Mrs. Roosevelt apparently referred to the congressional outburst which followed disclosure of the appointment of Miss Mayris Chaney, dancer friend of the first lady, to the $4,600-a-year post of director of the OCD's childrens' activities section of the physical fitness division. Miss Chaney resigned from that post oh Wednesday because of the congressional furor. . Dissatisfaction At Peak Congress i o n a 1 riissasisfaction with the OCD setup stemmed at first from the fact that Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia of New York, who appointed Mrs. Roosevelt to her post, had sought to maintain both the post of mayor and that of OCD director. The criticism burst into full uproar when it was disclosed that Screen Star Melvyn Douglas had been appointed to the post of director of the art's council oi the OCD information division. Disclosure o! Misp Chaney's appointment followed within a few days. i LaGuardia resigned from his OCD post nearly two weeks ago. In a final report to the president he said that most of the activities centered in Mrs. Roosevelt's division "might well have been, and perhaps eventually will have to be. transferred to existing permanent | divisions of government." New Bus Route Will Be Inaugurated Feb. 24 Ray Farmer, manager of Lubbock City Bus company, said Friday the increase in bus passengers i during January and thus far in ! February is approximately 12 per i cent above the normal increase for the corresponding months from year to year. Another bus is to be added to the Nineteenth street and Elhvoocl route Feb. 24 and, although such an addition had been contemplated earlier, the war and increased number of persons riding buses due to tire rationing rushed the addition, said Farmer. One of the reasons for the new bus, which will go westward on Nineteenth into Ellwood and back eastward on Nineteenth, was construction of Green Acres, sub-division of rent houses constructed for Army officers. RECORD PRODUCTION MADE AUSTIN, Feb. 20. (UR>—Record production of ice cream and cheese in Texas during January' was reported today by the University of Texas Bureau of Business Research.
