Morse, chairman of the Salvation Army drive, the <br /> ~ity Recorder presented a letter addressed to the Council, asking for the sum of <br /> $1200 to be used for relief of transients Bnd local cases. Dr. J. E. Richmond, <br /> treasurer of the organization, believed that such a contribution would be worth- <br /> while as it would relieve the Police Department, business men and residents of <br /> II the worry occasioned when hungry, homeless and jobless men are in the community <br /> with no provisions made for their temporary relief. It was pointed out that the <br /> ,\ city of Marshfield had levied $600.00 for such a cause. Mr. Morse stated that the <br /> I drive at the present time had yielded $1100.00 of its quota of $5000 and respect- <br /> ;i fully requested the council's assistance in this matter.

On motion made and seconded, it was so ordered. I <br /> II <br /> I <br /> :1 ~vfr . Harry Young, who asked the council at the last meeting for a five-year <br /> 'I <br /> II lease on the municipal airport, stated that he had not yet been consulted by <br /> I members of the Airport Committee in regard to his re~uest. Chairman Hendershott <br /> I did not believe that he should be forced to look up an unknown man when he had an <br /> established business downtown and was available for consultation at all times. <br /> J II Councilman Lamb suggested that Mr. Young and the Chairman of the ~irport Committee <br /> come to some agreement as to the proposed lease.
