Thomas G. Williams
Secretary, San Antonio Gas Company

A 15-year-old boy was in the hands of police today after he admitted stealing dope from a drugstore and then selling it to boys at a local academy for 10 cents a package.

The right of San Antonio voters to challenge an increase in the city tax rate of 45 cents was denied today by the City Council.  The commissioners agreed to reject a petition bearing 11,100 signatures urging a special election.
