It is estimated that approximately $4,100 in gate receipts would go toward meeting this expense. Supt. Wilbeck presenting the budget, indicated that during the past several years, actual receipts taken in at athletic contests has been higher than projected receipts. Results of this, is that non- salaried expenses for the athletic program have been self- supporting.

Secretary Gartner indicated ithat at present the forims for filing the budget estimates with the county auditor have not arrived and that if they were not received in ample time, it may be necessary .to postpone the hearing. The Board also spent some time discussing a 2 J / 2 mill levy proposal presented by Supt. Wilbeck who had stated earlier in his presentation of the budget that allowable growth per student, offset by a declining enrollment allowed for an inadequate amount of additional money with which to operate the school. A 2y 2 mill levy, if approved by the voters, would provide an additional source of Income which could be used for certain major repair costs with which ithe school will be faced.
