He asked that council pay for the curbing. The matter wa* discussed for sometime.

Mr. Roland Murray asked that the city lease the lot on the corner of York street and Abbeville avenue, north of the old folks home, for the purpose of building a miniature golf course for colored people. He asked for a two year lease and offered sum of $5.00 per month. Council favored the blea but voted to leave the matter in the hands of the director# of the Old Folks Home.
