San Antonio has been asked to cancel the permits under which the chili and hamburger stands are allowed to operate here by Dr. C. H. Gardner, Major in the United States Public Health Service. Mayor Bell and Commissioner Lambert held that as the chili stands of San Antonio have long been one of its picturesque features, he would not take such drastic action. He suggested that instead of abolishing them, the city would arrange to assign the chili vendor stands either to Alamo or Market Plaza.
