W. B. Mc- Donald announced Friday. He said police have al- ready solved "about 12" of the 33, however. No suspects had been found early Friday in tlie Thurs- day night burglaries. Jack and Ina's Cafe, 1042 South Second St. and the new Woodson High School, North Fourth St. and Cockerell Dr., were burglarized Thursday night- Nothing was taken from the cafe, although the burglar beat on the o-saret machine and other articles. He failed to get into the cigaret machine. Loot from the school building was estimated "maybe as high as in money. The cash was tak- en from a candy machine and a drink-dispensing machine. McDonald said entry to Jack and Ina's Cafe was made through a skylight, which the burglar broke. He reported that no place of en- trance was located at the school. There was a program at the school Thursday night, and McDonald reasoned that somebody hid in the. building until the crowd left and then commuted the theft McDonald said four autos have been stolen since the first of the year but that police have recov- ered all of them. City Commission Friday .morn- ing referred to City Atty. Alex Bickley for study a recommenda- tion from the Planning and Zon- ing Commission that adopt "limited annexation" of. outside areas. Bickley stated that he doubts the legality of such mergers. The City Planning and Zoning Commission wrote a letter, urging city commissioners to bring about limited annexation for purposes of planning, zoning, sanitation and health protection. No additional taxation would -be placed on the territory brought in under those circumstances. The proposal was based upon a j provision. in the charter of the City of Austin. City Atty. Bickley is to investi- gate the legal angles involved and Boy Hurt in Crash Leaves Hospital William M. Pittman Jr., 6, who was hospitalized at St. Ann Hos- pital following an automobile acci- dent Wednesday which killed his stepfather, Joe Donald Bird, was released from the hospital Thurs- day.

Diplomatic I after Pakistan and Turkey sign the United a broad defense, economic and "PakistanisaidT" report to the commission his de- cision on the validity of such a rule, The planning panel suggested that the program be established here either through an ordinance or an amendment to Abilene's charter. Its letter reads in part: "The authority now" exercised by the city in approving the subdi- vision of land withm five miles ol its corporate boundaries does not afford sufficient control in the proper development of said terri- tory. "It has been demonstrated that the policy of full annexation of such territory has many objection- able features." It would be difficult to deter- mine whether any legal opposition will develop to Austin's "limited annexation" charter power, the planning board said. "As of this date the City of Aus- tin has annexed no additional areas for limited purposes under this the panel wrote. Doyle Singleton, Abilene's city planning engineer, stated in a re- cent speech to a civic club here that more control over the develop- ment of fringe areas is needed.
