According to Mack M. Wet- more, 2227 Southgate, several homeowners in his block feel that it is time to do something about it. Montrose Boulevard, South Main and other streets with esplanades are beautifully planted with grass and kept cut, they point out, while Southgate's esplanade is over-run with weeds except when one of the residents in the neighborhood takes it upon himself to burn them. The Southwestern Times joins Mr. Wetmore in suggesting that the Southgate Civic Club take this on as its next project, appointing a committee to cir- culate a petition for presenta- tion to the Houston City Coun- cil for action.
