AUSTIN PROPERTY OWNER'S
KICK AGAINST LAND SALE
The willingness of the Board of
Education to sell thirteen and one
half acres of land in school section
16 to the Minneapolis, St. Paul &
Sault Ste. Marie Railroad at a price
of $5,000 an acre has aroused prop
erty owners in Austin and a protest
meeting will be held Sunday at 2:30
p. m. in the Church of the Resurrec
tion. The 'sale of this land would dispose
of Harvard street from 50th to 51st,
part of 50th avenue and part of 51st
street. The railroad company bought
some land in this section two years
ago and wants more for a switching
station and storage track.
The indignation of the neighbor
hood is not only over the prospect
of a switching station and the streets
closed, but because the school board
in selling this land will cause a de
preciation of the land they own to.
the north and south of this tract,
which will be far more than the,
amount they receive for the section
they sell through the fact that the
railroads runs through it
Also this will bring a switching
station in very close proximity to the
school at 51st and Harrison streets..
A year ago the school board tried
to get the permission of the city
council to dispose of this" section of.
the railroad, but at that time the
council thre wthe proposition out
and the sale was blocked.
The meeting tomorrow will be at
tended by members of the Austin
Heights and Neighborhood Improve
ment Association, the South Austin
Improvement Club, the Austin 'Im-.
provement Association and scores of
property owners and residents of the
district. Some of the speakers
scheduled are Aldermen Thomas J.
Lynch and M. J. Healy, and J. J. Gub
bins, O. J. Cooper, John W. Kennedy,
William E. Golde nand John Dooley.
