County School Board Names An Attorney The proposed merger of the Ledyard school and portions of four other districts in the north end of Kossuth county was discussed at length by the Kossuth board of educaton during a meeting at the courthouse Wednesday night. Gordon Winkel, county attorney, who will represent the board as result of a petition filed by the districts in district court here last week, could not be present at the meeting. The petition filed last week dealt with the county board's decision against the proposed reorganization Nov. 24. It claimed the board's action was erroneous and appealable and the districts involved asked the court to order the county board to comply with the Code of Iowa in approving the original petition for a vote upon reorganization. The appeal also asks that the court enter an order reversing the board's decision and to order the board to comply with legal provisions and approve the petition and to call an election on the proposed reorganization. The board also discussed the establishment of an area vocational school, with a junior college in conjunction, possibly, at the meeting. Kossuth at the present time is studying the possibility, along with Palo Alto, Emmet, Clay and Dickinson counties, with one school to serve the entire district.
