It involved 15.5 acres of bayfront properly about :wo blocks wide and extending approximately 900 feet out into Lavaca Bay, leased for a 25-year period at annually, with a renewal clause for an addi- tion 25 years at the same rental. The lease calls for the com- pany to dredge a channel wide enough and deep enough for barge traffic, install a railroad track, and bulkheads for the purpose of enabling the com- pany to make rail-sea connection for handling freight of all types. Expansion Room The contract was signed fol- lowing an announcement that the company needed the room for expansion, and if it would seek a larger site elsewhere. The referendum was request- ed by a local business woman, Mrs. Lois DeShazor, who chal- lenged the council's right to issue such a lease and presented a qualified petition to the coun- cil seeking an election on the issue. This made it mandatory according to charter ruling, to call a vote on the lease by the electorale. Nol Against Lease In opposing the lease, Mrs. DeShazor said she was not against a lease being granted to Bauer, but merely to the terms and conditions of this lease. She contended that the lime was too long lo tie up such new emergency entrance on Depot Street where the main entrance is now located. Two elevators will connect Ihe ground floor wilh second and third stories. Each floor will have a com- plete nursing unit, including nursing station, utility rooms, examining room and pa lien I rooms. Palient rooms will be equipped with bath facilities, and almost all will be private rooms. The kitchen and dining areas will be enlarged and additional space will be provided for cen- Iral supply and laboratory. Established in 1925 and for- merly known as De Tar Me- morial Hospital, the hospital underwent expansion in 1036, 1958 and 1081.
