Voorhis former Secretary. One of the greatest opportunities Ever offered a Community and certainly the greatest Ever offered Arcadia to get something essentially free from the state and Federal governments with very Little outlay on the City a part faces Arcadia today. It appears at the time that with very hath eff Ort my our part Arcadia can lie designated to be Hie Home of on of the $400,00 National Ltd Nard armoires to be b r l in the state of California cd ring the next few . Here world be a building with a capacity Many Lunes that of the largest Hall in Arcadia Avail Law in for All kinds of civic and Public events. The Community containing the Almery is also Hie Home of the caretaker who is furnished by the government. The Community containing the. Armory is usually the Home of most of the personnel of tin National i Aru units stationed there and their budget is a Rox Blately �?~20,Opp per month. Not a bad addition to our Community purchasing Power. What does Arcadia have to do to s cure this v Indian civic improvement just the comparatively Small contribution of furnishing approximately two acres of lard on which to build it. An armory for the local National i Hoard unit Boa led by it. Col. W. M. Gosh Nan of arca a. Stands third on the list of those to be built and a fund of More than six million dollars already has bet n deposited for Sui b a purpose Iii Sacramento. Now where should this armory be located Bilo not essential it is the belief of this newspaper that a project of this size might Well be tied in with the development of a civic Center. It is generally recognized by interested businessmen that the present location of City Hall is a detriment to tin development of the downtown business Section. Furthermore All of the City owned proper \ on Hei Ler Greet should be left vacant for parking purposes for the stores that will soon be built on Huntington drive. Therefore the Tribune Calls upon the mayor of the City to Issue a Call to a representative group of citizens representing All groups in the City to form a committee for the purpose of settling once and lot alb the question of a location for the City s future i. In enter and secure enough land at that location to allow two acres for a National guard Armor anti that said land be offered to Lite government for Ach a purpose. Arcadia has a crying need for a building in c enough to hold big banquets concerts dance and All kin1 of major civic affairs Here is our Chanco to gel it tor pub ably loss than i per cent of the actual co i. We must not fail. The Tribune invites everyone in to turf club files answer to head lox an Lias b in filed by gip in ailed turf club in Hie suit ii a i to nth by tile agy to collect ult amount of the five cent Ucol Ini Sion tax for t a first Day of the current meet according to City attorney t. Guy Cornyn. Evidently the attorneys for the race track Felt that it was inadvisable to attack the sufficiency of the complaint filed by the City through a demurrer but filed in Toad a formal an wet be Ting Forth among other defences that the and mis Ion fee is a tax upon the race track itself and therefore is in excess of the $100 per Day limit set by the state Hor e racing act. The further cont action is made hat the Tex i not authorized by the Constitution being neither a property tax pod tax or dog tax hoi a lie use of any by linens. The track Eon cuts also that the amount to be collected is grossly in a ice of any amount necessary to Johee or regulate the business affected and is for this reason discriminatory and in Lavor of other places of amusement. The track estimates that the pro a chs of the tax for Hie meet will approximate $87,500 which is great in excess of the other License fees j toll a Ted by the City. The track will Isk the court to declare the ordinance Ultra Vires unconstitutional die a1 and void and to Issue Lujano i Ion to restrain its enforcement.
