And, Welch says the problem will continue until the city returns to the moral base it has had in the past. Welch told the West Houston Chamber of Commerce that while president of the Houston Chamber of Commerce he was continually told by representatives of the major corporations that Houston was no longer a good place to raise a family. "The one point of resistance we got (when trying to recruit corporations to relocate here) was that 'Houston is not a good place in which to live and raise children.'" He says that the city's reputation as a place where vice has flourished is what is tarnishing the city's image with corporate executives, and he adds that when a city's moral appeal is lost that city will eventually lose its economic vitality. "There has never been a community that has given up totally its standard of morality that has not declined," he says, "... not Bince history began." Welch says San Francisco has lost 70,000 people from 1960 to 1980 and are continuing to lose population "because it's a city without a moral code, a city without a moral standard." Art Festival Proceeds will be Donated to Police Station A major portion of the proceeds from the Spring Westheimer Colony Art Festival will be donated to the Lower Westheimer Police Community Center, announced John Daniel, member-at-large of the Westheimer Colony Assoc: r.ticn and Project Coordinator for the police center from all area organizations. "A long time dream of mine will come true with the completion and October opening of this Community Police Center," said Daniel, who is the security director for Liberty Bank. The police project has had 90% of the materials and labor donated from area business establishments and community organizations. "The merchants are elated over the opening of the center, as they and residents were in 1980 when the Westheimer Association provided thousands of dollars for the first off-duty policeman who walked the lower Westheimer area ..." "Now with current community uprising over the 'crusin' youth into the wee hours of the weekend nights, maybe a closer community effort can be focused through the police center," continued Daniel. With the visible presence of the police .center, it is hoped there will be more of a constant contact with the "street people" and the undesirable element by the center's police staff, said a press release produced by the group. "Working as project coordinator, I have had an opportunity to attend many of the local clubs and organizations meetings. We plan to not only suport the center with funds, but form a bond between community groups who will have volunteers working within the center and with the police personnel there. This working bond will hopefully, provide a true community atmosphere needed to make the WeBthei- continued page 3 Welch says that the lack of morality in the city was the motivating factor in his desire to seek another term as mayor. "What really set me off was a drive up Taft Street from Allen Parkway to Lovett at high noon," he says. "When I passed Westheimer at Taft and saw young boys with their eyeshadow and their lipstick being paraded on sidewalks of Houston without anyone doing anything, the question came to me, 'If I don't do anything about it who is.'" 0 Welch says as mayoi 6e will insure that when children go dow ihe street they will not see "commercii 'ice glorified and that they themselvr >. not subject to the seduction of a so with zero stand ards." *\ A Tickets on Sale for Oct. 5 mefit Tickets are still available for the October benefit performance of Execution of Justice.
