alwil He is anticipating a day
in the not-too distant future when
H may be possible for Wellesley
to own and operate Its own com-
munity or civic center where
offices for all civic organizations
can be located side by side. "A
considerable amount of interest
has been shown by leading resi-
dents and by reputable civic or-
