Thursday, September 18, 1947 SOUTHWESTERN TIMES Page 15 Rev. J. C. Petrie Marks Eleventh Anniversary With Unitarian Church Rev. John Clarence Petrie of 2720 Pittsburg, in West Univer- sity, Sunday observed his eleventh year of service as pastor of the First Unitarian Church of Hous- ton and his 22nd in the Unitarian ministry. His church was an aided mission of the American Unitarian Asso- ciation at the time Reverend Petrie accepted the pastorate. The con- gregation then drew up plans for expansion which would have the church self-supporting in 11 years. The goal was accomplished in nine years. Prominent in labor-management disputes, Reverend Petrie also has the unique distinction of receiving membership in the Congregational church. First Unitarian Church was likewise granted Congrega- tional fellowship, though retain- ing its Unitarian connection and The minister proudly explains that this makes the church broad- ly liberal rather than sectarian in its emphasis. Reverend Petrie ha...

Thursday, September 18,1947 SOUTHWESTERN TIMES Page 17 Bellaire To Charge Higher Water Rate To Out-Qf-City Users An extension of the Bellaire water mains into Water Control and Improvement District 12 was voted last week by the Bellaire city council with an approval given also to .higher water rates for residents outside the city. Permission was granted to sub- dividers establishing residences south of the city limits to extend a six-inch main to the develop- ment with the stipulation that each house be no further than 460 feet from a fire plug. In approving the higher water rates, the council said that since some of the Bellaire ad valorum taxes are used by the water de- partment it is only fair that the residents outside the city, who do not pay city taxes, have a higher water rate to offset the difference. * In other action, the council ap- proved the purchase of a two-way radio set for the city police car. The radio will be tuned to the Houston police frequency and the Bellaire ...

Ricker of 3736 Jardin, will publish her first volume of poetry October 1. Mrs. Ricker, a native of Galveston, has written many prize winning poems for na- tional magazines in recent years. The new volume, "Treasure Chest," is being printed by the Carlton Press of San Antonio in a limited edition and the few first edition volumes will be sold at $2 each.

She is a great-granddaughter of Captain Norman Hurd who set- tled on Galveston Island in 1826 and later commanded the Texas battle...
