Friday, March 23,1956 YOUR TRADE- IS WORTH MORE At Thod Felton's Here's Final Argument By Housing Opponents This final statement li Issued as of Friday, March 23, by ; the Baytown Homeowners Association. . :'.'••'•• "As we bring the campaign further extension of-the Federal Public Housing program in Baytown to a close and look ' back over the past two weeks, we find that we have given to the voters of Baytown many valid reasons why their votes should be overwhelmingly against Public Housing tomorrow. We do not intend to go over the same ground again, as we feel that most of you have . made up your minds. "However, there arc one or two common sense angles which deserve mention as we end the campaign. "First, it has been stated often by .proponents of the public Jng that the Baytown city council in ori record in favor of public housing and on the surface of it, the statement is true. "However; let's look at the real picture. The decision of our city council' was made near the close of, a long and tiresome council meeting some four months ago. The Baytown Housing Authority, composed of five good citizens, simply asked the council for permission to proceed with some preliminary steps to secure additional public housing, it didn't sound too bad to the council, and they were about ready/to call it a night anyway, so they just said "go ahead." "Since then, the picture has changed dramatically. The many detrimental aspects of Federal LANDMARK OF PROGRESS ... Baytown now has 10,000 telephones USY, bustling Baytown reaches a new plateau in its fabulous record of growth. In the picture you see Installer Anthony Bletsch arriving at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Burney W. Stinson at 140 N. Burnett Drive to install Baytown's 10,000th telephone. Mrs. Stinson, dauahter Cassie, and son Fritz, are welcoming him. "fen thousand telephones are a matter of pride to every Baytown citizen, as an accurate indication of growth and development. I he telephone in Mr. Bleisch's hand, and ihe vast amount of additional equipment necessary to make it useful, becomes a significant symbol of the way General Telephone Company is grossing with this city. That is why we can say with pride, we're "Building with Baytown."

GENERAL TELEPHONE COMPANY OF THE SOUTHWEST A M&nl** ^On Public Housing have been emphatically-pointed out to'the coun- ,cil members and to the citizens of Baytown. Much more thought and consideration have been given to the matter and there is no longer any positive assurance that if. the city council had it to do over again, that they would approve more public housing for Baytown. "The first indication of this came when, after a public hearing in which facts on both sides were presented to a packed council chamber, the Mayor and council unanimously approved the calling of tomorrow's special election voluntarily, and v/ithout waiting for a special election petition to be circulated. This in itself, indicates conclusively that the council had grave doubt about the •wisdom of their original action. "Since then, at least one member of the council has expressed himself as being opposed to public housing, and, -during the past weeks Mayor Red Pruett has spoken before several groups and organizations on the subject and has adopted an attitude of strict neutrality on the matter. He has been'very-fair minded in giving his listeners facts on both sides and asking them to vote their own convictions. "Now this doesn't necessarily mean that our Mayor is against public housing, but it certainly casts a shadow of doubt as to whether he is stil) of the same mind as he was hack there when the council told the housing authority to get going. "So if you should be planning to vote for public housing tomorrow just to "back up our city council," you may be assured that there is a mighty good' chance that the city, fathers are no longer actual supporters of Federal public housing themselves. "A lot of xvater has passed under the'" bridge and a lot of positive information has been released on the public housing, question since the tag end of that council meeting some four months ago.

In the tension (or something:) he got mixed up on the scale of answers to the Blackwood Convention, and responded with five clubs, think-. ing he was showing an ace, when in fact, of course, he was an* nouncing "no ace." Granted, it is a reasonable observation that finalists in a national tournament should not be subject to brain* storms, but such things happen. In the other rodffi the numerous spectators were shocked by this maladroit performance: South West North East 2^ Pass 2 NT Pass 3 v Pass 3 A Pass 4 V Pass 5 f Pass Pass Pass This North-South pair were us* ing the artificial two-club open* ir,g as the forcing bid, and in this method, since a two-diamond response (also artificial) is negative, showing less than 1'j tricks, North's actual two-notrump response announced a fairish hand. South then showed his real suit, hearts, and North specified in turn that he had spade strength. But all of these exchanges came to naught, including- North's eventual, heart raise to the five- level, because, on the one side, South never did learn definitely that his partner had an »ce, and North wasn't sure that there were enough winncn in the com* bined hands. One of two things is obvious: South should have used the Bluckwood, or—much bttter— North should huve cue-bid five clubs instead of mkinf th< vtgut five-heiM bid.
