estimated the bends cad be issne'd at
' a rate not exceeding^ two and ono|
fourth cver^ent. Hie board points out
that present bonds of the city carry '
interest around six percent.
Mayor J. H. Thomson, in a detailed
I statement, said the city did not antie
ipate getting into the full improve[

I the issuance of tlTe^WWis would not
require a tax increase, except for the
