Dear Sir: Last Saturday evening, Oct. 5, the Titonka Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the mittee of the Titonka School met at, the school on Sept. 24 with 19 members present. The committee, comprised of 12 parents, six students and six teachers. Chairman Clarence Brandt stressed the purpose of the committee as that of garth- ing information and offering recommendations pertaining to the future of educational plan- ing in the community. Supt. Rod Wilbeck addressed the group on .the subject of school finances, efficiency of school operation, the problems of inflation, and the persistent need to broaden educational programs. He cited the committee as a good communication instru ment, a source for suggestions of alternatives in solving finance related education problems. Concerning enrollment, it was pointed out that.. high school enrollment would be fairly consistent the next four years but that this would be followed by a decline with a possible average of 18 per grade by 1979, with a 1984 projection of about 250 students in the entire school. Reviewing finances, he covered cources of revenue, budget ceiling and the effect of enroll ment on per pupil cost, the state foundation plan which forces more efficiency, and the new factor of the Area Education Agency which is to replace the county system. Under the new factor, the education of every child of school age in the district is included in the budget, including those requiring special education and those detained at institutions. By weighted formula, these special needs are provided for by the foundation plan. He also pointed out the lack of a program for the gifted.

The final scoring of the game caused by dropping enrollment, came in ithe fourth period on Kossuth Cattlefeeders and Cowtaelles sponsored a beef barbecue. The High School Swing Choir presented an excellent program of lighit popular music at the ivent. .These young people spent much time and effort jreparing their material so it could 'be done with a good de- jree of showmanship. Unfortunately, they were not provided with a very respectful or attentive audience. It is difficult to sing over a lot of idle chitchat, loud boisterous laughing and hollering across the room. That was the problem Saturday night. My point is simply that I think we are doing our youth a disservice by some of *he behavior we exhibit as adults. It appears to me that some of us follow a double standard of being critical of young people who are disrespectful and discourteous but then not practicing respect and countesy as a part of our actions. Anyway, to end I would like to say that I know we have some fine young people i n our community, and I think their efforts in worthwhile endeavors could be awarded with the courtesy of our attention and prase, instead of toeing ignored. Sincerely, Rod Wilbeck, Supt. He stated that these were fixed problems as there would be no new sources of finances and no rise in population, into .the dicsussion expected Entering was the possibility of confronting legislative members of the School Study Committee with the plight of rural area schools and of the unfairness of including transportation costs in the budget ceiling. It was decided that the best procedure for establishing recommendations for alternatives to meet the problem would be itihrough study sub-committees. Sue Krantz was named chairman of the committee to study a comparison of the programs and finances of school of neighboring districts. Ruth Janssen was named to head a study of the curriculum of our school and how well it meets the needs of students. Dyerg Krantz was named chairman of the committee to study alternatives for delivery of school curriculum under the financial bind. Reports are to be submitted at the next meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 12. Meetings are also planned for December and January, with a scheduled report to the Board of Directors early in April. a pass from Jeff Zwiefel to Scott Smidt.
