II was the second group oi rosy figures from Ihe White House in less than a week, al- though administration officials shied away from directly using them to dispute anti-Democratic blasts from the Republican Na- tional Convention in San Fran- cisco. Commenting on a Commerce Department report that the gross national product hit an an- nual rate of billion in the second quarter of this year Johnson said: "We fully expeci the gains in the second half o tlie year to be even greater than the first." The figure for the gross na lional sum of al goods and services, governmen and a gain of billion above the firs three months of 1964, the Com merce Department said. Earlier in the day, Johnson received from Secretary of La bor W. Willard Wirlz a repor that said nonfarm cmploymen and factory workers' income hi all-time high levels in June.

Legality Question Commissioners Ron Brown nd William S. Fly raised the juestion of legality of the re- iesignalion, since some abut- ing residential lots already have been sold "with the under- tanding that this was reserved as a recreation area." Fly said he thought the com- aission could legally approve he change, but speaking as ar ndividual "I think if I ownet one of those lots I'd have them up in court."

He said he has "just tak en over" the operation. He said Ihe property is use .ess in its present stale, am .hat he would be happy to replat it into residenlial Ids i that proved to be the best solu ion. He also said that "maybi some service club" could lake over the area and develop it a a park, or that perhaps th city would be interested in th property. He said it was his understand ing, however, that the area ha seen "offered to the cily" orig inally and the city had turner it down. Park Site Commissioners then discusse the possibility of taking the mal ter to Victoria Parks and Rec reation Commission to see i that body would be interestec in accepting the area as a par site, but no mention of purchas was made. After the meeting Kirkpalric1 told a reporter his firm woul not be interested in giving th property to the city. Commis sioners speculated that il wi have high value as commercia property, with Sam Housfo Drive now being developed a a major thoroughfare from Houston Highway lo the Hallclts ville Highway.
