Decision Postponed
iSnerval to The Herald)
HARLINGEN. July 19. — Arroyo
Navigation district commission has
indefinitely postponed decision on
the purchase of a new dredge, it

Postponement was due largely to
the fact that Joe L. Penry, Jr. ,

called to Fort Worth by the serious
illness of his father-in-law. and
left the Valley Thursday morning.
Dissension became evident Thurs
day among commissioners regard

expected to be settled when the
commission again takes up the
question on the return of chairman
Penry*.
