had in 
mind who had requested the restriction, which was that the restriction regarding
use for filling station purposes should apply to the entire four-acre parcel
for a 
period of twenty years.  He had urged the City to complete its action on
the zoning 
of this parcel and stated that he would regret to see a postponement which
necessitate this work being done over.  Pegent jones stated that he did not
wish to 
be arbitrary but that he, personally, did not like to pass on changes that
are pro- 
posed after a committee has acted, because he would prefer to see the record
put in 
proper form so that there could be no possibility of misconstruction or confusion
later, He stated that he would not be prepared to support a modified form
of this 
recommendation until the committee had considered it further.

moved the adoption of the above recommendation amended to read as follows:

          the West by Segoe Road, the Regents agree that deed restrictions

               (a) Prohibit for a period of twenty years any use for 
                    filling station purposes; and 
               (b) Require a thirty foot set-back in perpetuity on Mid- 
                    vale Boulevard, and on Regent Street. 
          The question was put on the above recommendation as amended, and
