Plans for a new city central police station, to cost between $70,000 and $80,000 are being prepared by Roy Mason, assistant city engineer, following directions by A.U. Mills, commissioner of public safety. As the commissioner was out of the city today, it was not possible to learn how far he intends to go with this idea in the next few months, but it is believed it will be some time before the council will enter on the undertaking. Mills, Saturday expressed himself in favor of spending about $5,000, providing the people could vote it in a bond issue, to fix the present central station.

Dedication ceremonies for the McCarver Primary School will begin at 7:30 p.m. next Tuesday in the new school’s multipurpose room, Superintendent Angelo Giaudrone has announced. Completed last spring, the nine-room primary school houses the first-, second- and third-grade classes and three kindergarten groups. These classes were formerly held in the McCarver Elementary-Junior High Building. The new school is located on the south side of the older building, with playground space separating the two, but continues to operate in conjunction with the elementary school.

Tacoma officials balked at banning heavy metal rock concerts at the Tacoma Dome, but they promised to employ stronger security and crowd-control tactics. New limits will be placed on the number of concertgoers allowed to mill about the floor of the Dome during shows, and more private security guards will be used during concerts rather than uniformed police officers, city officials said. Increased police patrols outside the Dome will be maintained, and pat-down and metal detection searches of patrons will continue.
