I feel that such information <br />as we can obtain at this meeting would be advantageous in our discussions. <br />I shall be glad to confer with the Council shortly after my return. <br />Very truly yours, <br />F. KENNETH D EKPSEY, <br />Mayor of South Bend. <br />Councilman-Niezgodski made a motion that the communication be placed on file. Councilman McCarthy seconded <br />the motion. Motion carried. <br />COMMUNICATION <br />City Council, <br />City.Hall, <br />South Bend, Indiana. <br />Gentlemen: <br />South Bend, Indiana. <br />June 7, 1947. <br />Since the Studebaker Local #5 sponsors a soft ball team, and our people are greatly interested in all ball games, <br />we have a few suggestions we would like to make in concern of the city provision of places for ball games. <br />First, there are not enough ball diamonds, especially in the North west part.of tam and there are not enough <br />lighted fields. The fields are not kept in proper playing condition, no doubt due to lack of help. <br />We feel that the City Council can alleviate this condition, especially by providing for such changes when <br />setting up the new budget. <br />This program will do much for the youngsters of our city as well as for the adults. And anything that can be <br />done to help our youth is not too costly. Everyone will appreciate it. <br />Sincerely yours, <br />GEORGE C. HUPP,.president <br />Studebaker Local #5 UAW -CIO <br />Councilman Bishop made a motion that'the communication be referred to the Park Department. Councilman <br />McCarthy seconded the motion.
