The surprise offer for sale of the historic San Antonio Arsenal by the Texas National Guard has stirred local interest in securing the property for continued use by the Bexas County Civil Defense. "We could use it for storage and for many, many other Bexar County Judge Blair Reeves said Tuesday. Although the Texas National Guard Armory Board voted Jan. 10 to sell the 8.239 acres, local officials claim they were not notified of the action. The armory advertised the property for sale in Monday's Wall Street J ournal on a sealed-bid basis. The county's civil defense facilities are located in one of the buildings on the property. The facilities are the county's headquarters in case of a major disaster, and include communications, storage and maintenance. Col. Harry Kelton, director of the armory board, said in Austin that the civil defense and the National Guard have "a kind of gentlemen's agreement" on use of the facilities by the county. Kelton said he notified Collis Grantham, head of the county's civil defense, "several months ago we were going to sell the property." The National Guard acquired the property in 1951 from the federal government. It was declared surplus last year after completion of two new National Guard armories in San Antonio. The property is bounded oh the east by the San Antonio River, on the north by Durango, on the south by Arsenal (Continued, Page 12, Col. 4.)

Police Prevent Hanging Suicide Three San Antonio policemen used mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and external heart massage Tuesday to revive a 24-year-old man who hanged himself because a woman rejected his love. The officers found the man hanged by a belt tied to a high fence behind a lounge in the 2400 block of W. Commerce shortly after midnight. Patrolman Shellon Spears quickly cut the belt and applied mouth-to-mouth resuscitation while officers Edward Giddings and Allan Mickey began external heart massage. The officers revived the man by the time Emergency Medical Service technicians arrived, who rushed the victim to Bexar County Hospital where he was listed in critical condition. Police said that they found a note in the victim's pocket which read: "1 love her very much and that's why i killed her." Also found was a torn picture of a woman. However, officers said the woman was located later and was not harmed. She told police the man had come by her residence earlier, but she refused to go out with him. Witnesses at the lounge said the man, who lives in the 200 block of W. Houston, entered about a half hour before he was found. The man tried to pick a fight wiih several patrons, but was finally ejected by the manager, who called police. The officers were answering the disturbance call when they found the victim. Spears said when the man was cut down, the officers could not find any sign of life, but began the revival efforts immediately. They reported it took several minutes before the man's pulse and breathing were restored slightly.
