Reid, president of the school hoard, ;uut Rosco Craflon, chnrrmm of tlich special campaign committee. A little more than $30,000 has been pledged In the drive, which begun several weeks aRo nncl has been more or less dormant recently wlills awaiting reports from two educators who were asked for recommendations on a site. Those two men, Dr. W. D. McClurkin. associate director of the division of Survey and Field Scrv- ive for Peaboily College, Nashville.! Tcnn., anti Clifford S. Blackburn ' of the State Department of Education in Arkansas, working independently recommended the same site for their first choice. It is an 18-acre tract immediately North of the present high school and would permit use of Haley Field, the gymnasium and some of the other facilities of the present school. Tn Besin Negotiations When funds for the purchase of the site have been obtained, the school board will proceed with steps to purchase the property, Mr. Reirt said. "We will endeavor to deal directly with the property owners after we have obtained an appraisal of the ground and the improvements v'.iich will be needed to make room for the new school structures," Mr. Reid explained. In cases where we cannot agree on a reasonable price for the land to be acquired, he added, it may be necessary to go to court and institute condemnation proceedings under which a jury will bn required to determine the land values. Mr., Reirt said that he was particularly pleased with the speed in which members of the school board and the special citizens committee reached'agreement on the selection of the site which had been recommended to'them. . .*....
