The weather (it was 14 degrees below zero when the meeting began) held the crowd to a minimum, but failed to dispel any of the warmth created over the possibility of a merger of the Algona and Whittemore school districts, if an open meeting here Wednesday night, Jan. 17, is any indicator of feelings here. Generally speaking, it was apparent that the 32 persons present, less than half the number present at a similar open meeting at Whitlemore two nights earlier, favored the proposed merger — and it is quite possible that due to reaction at 'both meetings, the county board of education will now m.ake a thorough study of the proposal. Their study would be followed by a public meeting, circulation of petitions, a vote of all persons in the three areas involved — and finally, reorganization if the plan is passed. Supt. 0. B. Laing, who presided at the meeting here, ventured "just a guess" as to a possible calendar of events from now on. Petitions could be circulated during February, a public hearing could be held Feb. 15, an election to determine if all persons in the ,three areas want the reorganiza- '•tidd in* March, election of a new school board in May, with July 1 as a possible effective date for the reorganization. In answer to this question — "will we have to increase accommodations for students" from Fred Kent, Jr., Mr. Laing stated ,— "not at the present, however, we are tightly housed now." John Hayes, president of the Al- ;ona school board, said the Whit- eraore building '.'will be the prob- em of the new school board." He was referring to possible use of the Whittemore structure by the proposed hew district. Leonard Elbert, president of the Whittemore board, and board member Bud Espe were present at the meeting and Elbert gave a resume on millage, school costs there, etc. It was made clear that any other John Murphy, Livermore, Dill »&,>i yjfr'X.'ft ,„:•$,.. _-;:• ^.
