property in Sylvan township, 15
miles north of here.
By January, Hanna held the
deeds to nearly 2,000 acres, and
the attention of all of Wash-
tenaw county. A "land boom"
was in the making, and farm
prices skyrocketed.
To all who questioned his rea-
sons, Hanna would shrug, say he
was merely acting for a client, and
could not give the answers.
* * *
AND THEN last March the
buying stopped. Hanna had poured
$500,000 into the Chlesea area for
67 farms, and over 4,000 acres.
Oil wells, atomic research, a
housing project, auto factories,

IMMEDIATELY complaints
from the Chelsea residents were
heard, and a public hearing was
set for August 26.
The motive behind the many
petitions submitted was clear.
Curiosity.
To the scores of people at the
public meeting, Hanna said he
could only tell them that the na-
ture of the project would be a
beneficial one.
Tomorrow the Road Commission
will attempt to give Hanna their
decision. Legally they can close
the roads. Perhapskthen the peo-
ple of Chelsea will know the what,
why, and who of the $500,000 mys-
tery project.
