MRS. L.E. HOVEYlastThurs- Sheakleys take pleasure In proudly announcing their new Go/of Room ...for private showing of exclusively fine fashions. On Monday, September 11, at the regular school elections in the area, the board of directors of Iowa Lakes Community College, Merged Area m District, will submit to the voters a request for permission to levy a 3/4 mill tax for a period of five years. This 3/4 mill levy will provide funds for purchasing a site, construction of buildings, payment of debts contracted for the construction of buildings, and acquisition of libraries, and to maintain, improve, or expand the merged area school. The people will be asked to vote on the three quarter mill levy in all of the school districts of the area. If approved by a majority of the people, this proposal would provide for the levying of 3/4 of one mill for a period of five years and would amount to 75 cents per each $1,000.00 of assessed valuation. The three-quarter mill levy would yield about $180,000.00 each year for the five year period, based on present valuation of the merged area. State and federal allocations for the area community college will depend to a great extent upon the local effort within the district. Orville Thoreson of Swea City and Edgar Meyer of Algona are area board directors.
