WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 1949 Missouri Voters Appear Out for Defeat of Plan <jfc A proposal to merge Pemlscot ^Bounty's »7 school districts into i single unit apparently had (ailed today by i margin of more than 36 to one. With nearly two-thirds of the return* reported and tallied, the vote this morning slood at 1.233 against and 47 for the single unit p i an . This was the vote from 17 of the county'* 27 school districts. Balloting yesterday was by school district. with one polling place set up in each. All returns are expected to be in today. Floyd Hamlelt of Caruthersville. PemLscot County superintendent of schools, said today the balloting was heavier in small district* than it was in the larger ones. Returns from the two largest »chool districts in the county, indicated the decisiveness of the vote. In the Caruthersville district, the vote was 52 ajainst and 11 for. In the Haytl district, all 136 ballots cast opposed the proposal. Principal reason for the proposal's defeat. Mr. Hamlett said, appeared to be the widespread feeling that Mich a set-up would vest too much power in one school board. Tinder the plan, a six-man board would have had broad administrative powers over the one large district. Second Plan Presented The election was called by the Pemisoot County school board nn- r Senate Bill 307 which went In- effect July 1, 19*8, and concerns school district reorganization. The election became mandatory after the county board submitted the plan to the Missouri State Board of Edu. cation, which approved It. Another plan, calling for reduction of the 27 districts to 15. was •nbmitleri to the state board later, but no nctton was t^iken on it.
