TWO j • Xi *•'.' *• '•& fS „.. fc.-"-" • • : - **i 1" w, Consolidation of Districts Topic At School Meet BESSEMER — The consolidation of the territory of the Intermediate School Districts o f Ontonagon and Gogebic Counties, will In no way chan g e boundaries or control of existing school districts in the two counties it was strongly stressed by George Schutt, assistant superintendent of public instruction, speaking at a dinner meeting of boards of education of the Intermediate School Districts and superintendents and boards of education of all constituent units in both counties Tuesday even- Ing at Webber's Resort, Lake Gogebic. Schutt noted that the voters of both counties will have the opportunity to vote on the proposal to Join the territory of the intermediate school districts of G o - gebic and Ontonagon Counties In compliance with Act 190 of the Public Acts of 1962, as amended. The question will be submitted to electors in conjunction with the regular annual election in each of the school districts of the two counties June 14. * * * A "yes" vote by the majority voting will permit joining the two iSDs into one district, administered by one superintendent and one board of education, the operation of which Is financed Jointly by the local taxpayers and the state. In addition the district will be eligible to receive state funds toward programs of special education A majority "no" vote will re suit in loss of state aid, and shift the burden of financing on local taxpayers. The Intermedi ate School District was created by statute and cannot be dis continued by local authority; it must be supported. The intermediate district is a successor to the former county school district which was administered by a school c o m - mlssioner elected by the people on a partisan basis, he said The major function of the commissioner was to administer school systems which had no superintendent. Operating expense was shared by the state and county. The area of the Jurisdiction was limited to t h e boundaries of the county. The intermediate district, as its name implies, is an agency between the local school districts and the Michigan Department of Public Instruction. Its jurisdiction extends over a n area that provides a public school membership of a minimum of 5,000 students. It has no control over administration of local school districts. The function of the I8D is to arrange for programs in special education that cannot be supported by the individual school districts. It functions on an area- wide basis, includes programs 'for the physically and mentally handicapped, special vocational training, and others. * * * It has no voice in administration of local school district except, through recommendation. It serves as a liaison between Ideal school, administrators and the state .department, by keep- Ing superintendents informed of changes in school legislation and other factors Involving educa< Uon. Schutt noted that there is confusion of the part of the public regarding the proposal to c o n- •olttiate the two counties Into one intermediate district, because of the various other consolidation projects in progress •t the present time: The aim in all of the proposed consolidation proposals, he said, Is to provide, for every child, an equal opportunity to develop his full potential in the process of preparation for living. In creating the Intermediate School District, he said, the minimum public school student membership was not set at 5, 000 arbitrarily. Statistical analysis revealed that the number of children needing special education, In each school district, is comparatively small—too few to enable special classes to meet their needs. Total membership of 5,000, however, includes a number sufficient to Justify financing special programs he Mid. The law mandates that intermediate districts which do not have a public school member- ahlp of at least 5,000, Join with one or more neighboring districts that will provide at least this number by July 1, IMS, or for- IRONWOOD DAIIY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN feit state aid. In determinng consolidation, he said, consideration should also be given to the geographical area— it should be geographically manageable. The state department is favorable to the merging of Gogebic and Ontonagon Counties into one intermediate district, he said. He noted that the two counties are closely associated in many ways— Gogebic County residents work at White Pine; the Circuits Courts of the two counties are in the same judicial distr i c t, teachers of the two count i e s have joint institutes; the Gogebic Branch of the Child Guidance Clininc, Inc., services a portion of Ontonagon County. + * * The major change which will result from consolidation of the two counties, will be in the administrative department. In- SATURDAY, MAY W. 1»6S. Senior Women Of Sharon LCW Are Honored BESSEMER — The Se n 1 o r women of the Sharon Lutheran congregation who are honor a r y members of the Sharon Lutheran Church Women, were special guests at the general meeting held this week in Kastman Hall. Mrs. Andrew Busch, Sharon LCW president, opened the meeting with a Scripture passage and a prayer. She welcomed the member;, and paid a special __ r ... welcome and tribute to the (15) stead of having two superintend- j honorary members who were ents and two boards of educa-' present. She said some were tion of five members, there will be one administrative body. In the transition period, the two boards now functioning will con an d not been able to come ' as they had planned. She said, ; recognition and tribute were to be given to senior citizens all 1 stitute a 10 member board, which) over the nation in keeping with will elect a superintendent. This board will function until the next Pres. Johnson's proclamation of observing May, as "Senior Citi- WAKEFIELD THEATRE •howtet Tonight and Sunday Twice Ef wings at ti4! ft tiOO Matinee Suad«r at 3iOO biennial intermediate sch o o l|zen Month." board selection in June 1967. At * * * that time, a seven memb e r Mrs. Robert Kellett, accom- board will be elected by the t panying herself on the gult a r, people on staggered terms— three for six years; two for four years, and two for two years. Beginning in June 1969, two members will be elected biennially., for six year terms. To provide fair representation for both counties, the names of candidates from both count i e s will be placed on a common ballot. Voters of both counties will vote for the candidates of their choice. The three residents of each county receiving the highest votes will be considered elected; and the one receiving the highest number of votes in the election be declared elected at large This will provide a seven member board including three from each county and one at large. Adjustment of the local share of financing was discussed. The Intermediate School Dist r i c t is an independent taxing unit, the tax levy allocated by the county tax allocation board based on the school district budget. It was noted that budgets are set by each district for the ensu i n g year, and tax allocation has been made. In the event of a difference, the millage rate of the county having the larg e r geographical area will prev ai 1. However, it was noted that, in the event the people approve the consolidation, the board,of education combi n e d will budget for the consolidated district, and a common millage rate will be taxed in both counties. * * In the discussion it was noted sang, "Sweet Hour of Prayer." Miss Diane Gustafson presented a beautiful meditation based on part of Psalm 71. She noted that a missionary who had lived! many years in a heathen land was not so impressed upon returning to America with the tall buildings, super-highw ays and numerous mechanical and 1 scientific improvements, but) the greatest impression was the lovely older women in America. Heathen women, she had noticed, who had not known God had grown uglier as they grew older. In America, too, he said the women who had not known God had a certain hard, cold and shallow look about them. In her meditation, she pointed out that perhaps many of the women as they grow older feel that their most useful days are over as their physical strength and energy has lessened, but she admonished them, "God does not want you to fret over this but to rejoice in each new day. He gives you." She painted an imaginary word picture as she described a beautiful woman; one who lets the beauty of Jesus be seen in her daily life, her eyes beautiful with the reflection of His peace and love, her lips being beautiful as they thank and speak of His goodness, her hands being beautiful as they serve Him and are grasped in daily prayer. * * * A greeting and a short spiritual message was given in Finnish by Mrs. C. Ray m o n d the people of the two counties! Holmes to the honorary m e m- have much to gain by approving the consolidation of the two districts and much to lose by denying it. A favorable vote will assu r e state sharing of operat 1 o n a 1 expense and eligibility for additional aid for special education programs. Failure to appro v e the proposal will shift the expense of operation to the taxpayers, and loss of aid for special programs. Schutt discussed state aid to education In general, noting that the tendency is for the state to assume an increasing share, to relieve local units, with the aim of providing equal opportunities for each child. He cited experiences of other districts in the Upper and Lower Peninsul a s which have reorganized. Most of these, he said, used the. annexation method of joining, larger districts annexing small e r districts, leaving control with the annexing district. A few have chosen to use the consolidation method as in the instant case. * * * In another matter of business, Arnold Korpi, area representative of the Michigan Education Association, explained the advantages of settling problems between teachers and administration by professional negotiations rather than thr o u g h use of the provisions of the Labor Mediation Act. He noted that teacher strikes are harmful to the students and the processes of education. He said educators believe it is better to settle problems through educational oriented channels in the school code. The system of professional negotiations is comparatively new, he said, explaining its provisions. He urged school administrators to adopt it. He Is available, he said, to meet with any school board which desires to know more about it. There were about 70 school administrators represent! n g school boards and superintendents of the various school districts of both counties togeth e r with intermediate district board of both counties at the meeting. Supt. Henry Haskins, Ontonagon I8D, presided. USE DAILY OLOBB WANT-ADS TONIGHT!

Mrs. Leonard Erickson gave a reading on the pleas of the elderly for grace and understanding. Miss Astrid Hansen read a series of poems, each depicting a certain stage of mother hood, such as mothers of babies and small children that must be tucked in at night, mothers of teen-agers, mothers of grown up children, and grandmothers. As each stage was noted, mothers belonging to that particular group were asked to stand. Mrs. Kellett closed the program by singing "In the Garden," accompanying herself on the guitar. * * * At the business meeting, Mrs. Busch gave a report on the district meeting of the LCW held in Ashland May 1, which she and seven other women of Sharon LCW attended. She also announced a retreat will be held at the First Lutheran Ch u r c h , Wakefield, June 24. Mrs. Leonard Johnson, service chairman, reported on the progress of the drapery fund.

We must usually just "wear it.out" by enough repititions of our speaking or singing till we grow calloused. But don't get the idea that you will completely overcome it. William .Jfennings Bryan, probably America's greatest orator in the past 100 years, once told me this: "If I am away from the lecture platform during my summer vacation, then I feel nervous and addicted to a certain amount of stage fright when I resume my public platf o r m work." Stage fright actually is a desirable thing, up to a certain point. God Almighty created,-us to have stage fright so we would be keyed up and doubly alert to any new environment or crisis. Thus, our primitive ancestors, when approaching any strange situation, were alert to movements of a python or tiger or human enemy.
