tified residents in the area that it planned to extend the thor oughfare which runs in front of Conrads twostory frame home The city then determined it would only need the area occu pied by half of

allows it to take only that part of private property it must have to extend or build roads without getting the own ers permission In this instance only half of Conrads house Conrad powerless to bodily
