Miss Beresford, Mr. Wood and Mr. Young decided to postpone their answer until July 22 at which time there will be another meeting. Questions of noise, more traffic, whether it can be considered a small business enterprise must be con- sidereal. People there were asked to put in writing their pros and cons and mail to Miss Beresford before July 22 so they could have them for reference.

Miss Beresford, Mr. Wood and Mr. Young decided to postpone their answer until July 22 at which time there will be another meeting. Questions of noise, more traffic, whether it can be considered a small business enterprise must be con- sidereal. People there were asked to put in writing their pros and cons and mail to Miss Beresford before July 22 so they could have them for reference.
