reviewing agency We are an approval he said I am of the opinion this thing is premature and should not be brought to he said More details chamber board approval sought See editorial Page 4 Chamber

City of New Braun fels which leases the land around the building Millions will needed to be raised to make the project work according to Wall We have some possible sources One is industry wanting to
