III. Recommendations: Percentage

A. Letters have gone out to eighteen cities requesting information
and views relating to percentages for the Allied Arts. It is the
feeling of the committee that a reasonable approach to the per-

1. 3/h of one percent of the first million dollars for a
building project to be allocated for the Allied Arts.

2. 1/2 of one percent of all additional funds for the building
project be allocated for the Allied Arts.

From the discussions and incorporations of the views of other
members of the Commission and upon receipt of information from
cities contacted, it is recommenced that a formal proposal for

(1) an ordinance detailed with percentages be sent to the
aldermanic board, and (2) formal recommendation from the Commission
dealing with Capitol Park be sent to Mr. Ernest Davis, Mr. Alan
Kiepper and Mr. Earl Landers
