This year, five of the eight job categories showed a November de- fewer local jobs, workers from other areas are applying for jobs here, and students and housewives are applying for Christmas jobs.

Shoppers were coming and going, their arms full of packages. The police officer was keeping an eye on the intersection of Main and Mill. And there on the comer a pair of shoppers, a man and a girl, stopped. The man took the girl's packages. She slipped her foot out of her shoe, opened a package, took out a pair of winter stockings, and put them on.

(AEA) and by four Oakland area residents were taken under advisement by the Austin School Board Wednesday. Willard Hardy and William Jefferson, representing the AEA, asked the board to consider the addition of two steps between t h e bachelor's and master's degree in the Austin teacher salary schedule. They requested a $150 increment j be given for 15 quarter hours of I work beyond the BA degree and an additional $150 increment for reaching 30 credits beyond t h e bachelor's degree. Teachers who receive their master's degree now eceive a $500 increase with no steps scheduled between the two degrees. Undergraduate Subjects Hardy and Jefferson also asked that undergraduate subjects re- ated to the field of the teacher, as well as work toward a master's degree be accepted in fulfilling the requirements leading to the increment. sented a proposal for opening a road on the south side of Oakland School whereby 40 feet of school property would be traded for a lot on the north side of the school. Other action: The board voted, 4-1, to pay Sen. P. J. Holand during the next legislative session according to an hourly rate for hours of s c h o o 1 work submitted by him by affidavit. ' rate will be $4.50 an hour, the same as paid to evening school teachers in the Austin system.

The festive group noted that the 1958 drive reached its goal for the first time since united drives started in 1951 and hopes a precedent was set. Morris Anderson, treasurer, reported that of the $69,548.44 collected, $60,527.83 was in cash. Total expenses of $3,076.77 have been paid. Praises Mrs. Ratunusien William B. Wolf, on behalf of the board presented a special 1958 United Funds Award for Outstand ing Citizenship to Mrs. Geraldine Rasmussen, president, Clarence Smith, drive chairman, and Lloyd Fennell, assistant drive chairman. Wolf said that the full board was very proud of Mrs. Rasmussen and noted that "She's started something that we'll try to keep going." "No man could do it; they tried," Wolf remarked. Fennell drew up an excellent working map of the city for solicitors and helped make the drive systematic, Wolf .noted, adding that Smith, drive chairman, was "one of the few bankers who hml enough nerve to ask for donations." Speed Is Noted The Wednesday meeting in the conference room of THE HER ALD was held just two months from the start of the drive and compares favorably with previous drives which dragged out to the end of the year. Mrs. Rasmussen read several congratulatory letters, all of them thanking the board for their successful efforts while thanking Austin residents for their generosity. In other business, affiliation with the Minnesota Community Research Council was tentatively approved, but further study was recommended. The council assists •local and county agencies in drive- plans and county agencies house of information. It also reviews budgets of national fund-raising organizations, insuring that community quotas are evenly distributed 13 Convicted in Gas Tax Refund Cases names to be disclosed after citizens have a chance to accept or reject appointment.
