With the present rapid growth of our city, nud the prospect for even a greater growth with the coming year, the problem of additional high school facilities is forced upon us. No one fiau now question the necessity for increased accommodation, and the only question before the citizens of Coviuo is how this shall bo obtained. Along these lines the school bonrd has mailer) this week to every voter the following circular letter, which should receive th«ir earnest consideration : Covinn, CAMP RINCON. Weather Ideal, Fishing rlany Quests. Excellent. June lat, 1008. To the Taxpayer and Voter: The board of trustees of the Covinn Union High School District. in whose hands yon have intrusted the currying on of our high school, Hilda the facilities and equipment wholly inadequate to do this work well. We lack recitation rooms for our recitation work and our study room will be overcrowded with oven a moderate increase in attendance for 1908-9. The indications are that the attendance will be very \ much increased. This lack of facilities and the needs for n larger high school building have been presented in detail, from time to time, in public gatherings and through the press. Last November the proposition to bond the district tor ?G),000 to purchase a site and erect a building was defeated at the polls by a small margin. The trustees feel tbnt they should provide additional room Hud faoill- • tho high school „ 7 _ , In bue of 'two tvaj'is '•"' "<* First, tbe trustees can submit; the proposition to the voters to bond the district for the amount necessary, 860,000, making tho first installment, IGOOO, payable ton years bonce, or in 1018, and nn equal amount payable each year for tho ten years following, the last in 1027. Second, tho .trustees can estimate bow much it will tako to purchano a site, erect mid equip a building, and iisk the County Supervisors to levy a tiix, all payable in one year for the entire amount or any part, of it.
