Wh- A tropical hurricane with winds up to 120 mtles per hour passed north of picturesque Nassau, Bahamas, today and headed for South Florida's Gold Coast. All South Florida was braced for the storm which whirled toward this wealthy Atlantic resort area at a 18 to 20 miles an hour pace on a west- northwest course. If the present course is maintained, the hurricane will strike the mainland a short distance north of Miami this afternoon. A high flow of southern wind over Florida may cause the storm to take a more northward course about the time It reaches the coast and cause it to buzz saw along the thickly-populated area between Miami and Palm Beach. The center of the second hurricane of the season passed nearly over or slightly north of the Bahamas capital shortly after 6:30 a.m. (EST). Highest winds were reported at 75 miles an hour in gusts. The wind did not reach the hurricane's top velocity in Nassau, since that British colony caught the -weakest side of the storm. 1949-50 Faculty Announced for Osceola Schools Registration for school student., in Osceola will begin at 9 a.m. Mon day and list through Wednesday and the classes will begin alter an assembly at 9 a.m. September 6, C Franklin Sanders superintendent announced today.

The Pemiscot 'County board was duly formed and soon came up ^. ith the single, countywide district plan. After tile proposal was mailed to the Missouri State Department of Education for approval, the board learned of considerable local opposition and mniled in a revised plan calling for 15 districts. The second plan, however, received no action by tlie State department which approved the single district plan for Pemiscot. The state department pointed out that the Pemiscat board's second plan arrived in their office past the deadline. Floyd llamlett, Pemiscot County superintendent of schools, declared that even though the 15- dlstrtct plan did arrive In the state department's hands after the deadline, they received it three days before the State Board of Education acted on the other plan. Election is Mandatory Once the state department approved a school district reorganization plan, an election was mandatory by law. In Pemiscot County the voters arc now faced with a proposal which members of the County Board of Education have publicly stated has. they think, very little opportunity of being approved. The election is estimated to cost between S12CO and $1400. If the issue Is defeated, at least a year but not over two must elapse before another proposal is presented to the voters.
