Budget shows an increase of $22,-801.94 and a total of $534,113.17 to be raised by local taxation. . There is a decrease of $33,907.35 In anticipated revenues from the state and from other sources. . - , 1 . , Decrease In revenue Is due largely to the withdrawal from the high school of 142 pupils from Garwood and Mountainside, who -will attend the new regional high school in Springfield. : ; . Budget shows a tentative "school tax rate of 1.57 as compared with rates of 1.44 in 1935-36 and 1936-37. Total district school tax for 1937-38 will be $534,113.17, as compared with $477,403.88 for this year; an in crease of $56,709.29. This Increase is accounted for. by: decrease In anticipated revenue, $33,907.35; increase in appropriations, $22,801.94; total, $56 ,709.29. s ; Decrease in revenue is due large ly to the loss of tuition noted above, this amounting to about $22,000. There is a further' estimated, de crease in the amount of "school aid which the board can expect from the state. A partial offset to the decrease in revenue la an increase J In ratables of the district of about $802,000, which at the 1.57 rate yields about $12,600.

In the setup' of the 1936-37 budget; this increased expense was not carried into the tax rate because sufficient funds were on hand to meet it. This cannot be done each year. In 1937-38 year there will be no deductions in salaries. This item accounts for $20,613 of the Increased appropriations. A partial offset to the reduction In tuition receipts has been made by reducing the budget for salaries in the high school by $4,600,'.it being noted that high school attendance will not decrease more than 100, against a loss of." tuition scholars of 142. , ... Other increased appropriations in round numbers are as follows: Text books, $650; supplies for instruction, $1,050; salaries , janitors, $500; fuel, $500; light, water, power, $1,200;. medical inspection, $700; auxiliary apparatus, $1,600; wages, mechanics, -$850; repairs' to grounds, $750; - equipment for instruction, $800; supplies for manual training, $500. - l. t , i i , , . Following items have decreased : janitors supplies, $400; repairs to buildings, $1,900. v Increases ,f or text books, supplies for instruction, supplies for manual training, equipment for Instruction, and auxiliary apparatus have been made to place those facilities on a normal basis, as distinguished from the curtailed basis which has been necessary since the 1932-35 budget. There has been a; part time increase of one man In " number ' of Janitors, and also a part tme in- crease of one man in the repair force. Both of these Increases rounding out previous part time po; sitions. ; - '.- Increase in the fuel item is made necessary by the operation of the ; new field house. (Increase in light, water and power item corrects previous underestimates. . Cost of medical inspection and of grounds are both abpormally high, because of necessity of replacing the auto used by the school nurse and second by unusual expenses for grass seed and side walk replacement. ; Decrease in repairs to buildings item as compared with this yenr is because of heavy expense for fire proof partitions at Grant School in this year's budget. ,118 Nelson Place, was hostess re cently at dinner for the Misses Sheena Webster, ; Peggy Addicks and Alleen Mundt.
