Description: Photograph used for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "Another addition to Oklahoma City's sprawling northwestern section was assured Monday with announcment that ground will soon be broken for a 2,800 - home development some 23 miles from the downtown area. As yet, un-named, but referred to as Northwest City, the 953-acre development eventually will mean an investment of over $60 million. Crown Investment Co. is the developer, with backers including Dr. N. F. V. Barkett, Dr. Ralph J. Shadid, Leo E. Ford, David B. Benham and Kenneth J. Wilson. To be located south of Northwest Highway, with its western boundary at Piedmont Road and extending 2 miles east, the complex will offer an 18-hole course, church, school and complete shopping center. First of the homes, in the $15,000 to $20,000 bracket, should be ready by late 1962 or early 1963, developers said. Construction of the golf course and installation of utilities for the first 160 acres are scheduled to begin this summer.............The homes will be constructed by city builders rather than through individual lot sales, Benham said. (photo tag: New northwest development, as seen in above sketch, calls for 2,800 homes plus shopping center and golf course.)"

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "Not evan an atom bomb could be expected to spread Okilahoma City over more landscape than she already occupies, but the pains of paying for expansion of ordinary water, garbage, police and fire services into newly annexed areas already are causing thoughts around the city hall.

The pending bond issue program is being depicted because of rising prices, and the city now face with possibility that curtaliment of critical materials will seriously affect extending services into the new areas. Frontiers Moved Too Fast The accomanying map shows the way the city has expanded its area. But the records at the city hall show the city has failed to keep abreat of its advancing frontier. How to catch up is the major worry around the city hall........Yet, the city police department, today contains fewer detectives and patrolmen than it had 20 years ago. But today's admittitedly undermanned traffic force contain 100 percent more police than it had 20 years ago."

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "Legal Challenge thrown up Tuesday by Oklahoma City likely will lead to a court battle over boundaries. Map shows why: At left, boundaries as of Monday are shown. Shaded area is land annexed prior to August by Midwest City, solid area was taken in after that date. Dotted line shows Oklahoma City boundaries before Tuesday's council action. Right hand map shows Oklahoma City's annexation Tuesday and the overlap with Midwest City boundaries that resulted. Attorneys say Midwest City legal errors invalidated annexations by the citym paving the way for Oklahoma City's big move. Courts will likely will have to solve the issue. (T-8-25-59 by Kyle Ragland) Midwest City officials caught without a council quorum had no immediate course of action planned Tuesday morning as Oklahoma City annexed 1.17 square miles eastward to conflict with their earlier expansion. "I don't have any idea what we'll do," commented City Manager Bob Quinlan, "because this is news to me." The Midwest City council had adjourned from a speacial 7 a.m. meeting less than two hours before the Oklahoma City action........Midwest City's Mayor Orville Mathews is out of town and one councilman will be unable to report for the city's regualr council meeting Tuesday night. This means the city council will have only two voted available and thus can meet only long enough to show there's no quorum, Quinlan said.
