At Los Angeles, May 14, 1932. Mr. F. H. Knickerbocker Mr. A. S. Halsted Our conference here this morning: It was decided that the Las Vegas Land and Water Company would not purchase the franchise and pipe line system in the Wardie Addition at Las Vegas, and the Wardie Addition people should be advised accordingly. In lieu thereof, however, it was decided to offer the Wardie Addition people a lower contract rate for the purchase of water, and we are willing to give them a rate of five cents per 100 cubic feet, with a minimum monthly payment to this we will redraft the contract accordingly. If they are not agreeable we will let the natter rest as it is and if it comes to a hearing the Nevada Commission will be advised of the offer that we made. In the event the other subdivisions desire a similar contract we are willing to give it, with a minimum monthly payment of $100. CC-Mr.W.M.Jeffers Mr.F.R. McNamee Mr. W.R .Bracken
