John Osnes WILCOX FUNERAL HOME "OUR AIM Phone 93 IS TO BE WORTHY OF YOUR FRIENDSHIP" Clear Lake CLEAR LAKE -- Regardless of who are chosen members of the school board in the election March 8, the site in Sunset View Addition selected by the present board members will not be changed, the group of interested told at a continued board and a citizens were session of the board at the high school Saturday evening. The decision of .the State. Superintendent of Public Instruction, made Feb. 1 and approved by the Slate Board of Education Feb. 12, upholding the decision of County Supt. Hazel Chappell that the Clear Lake Board of Education had acted legally and within its rights in the selection of a school site at Clear Lake, 'was read. E. B. Stillman, attorney for the -board, explained the situation for the benefit of those present. The Clear Lake board met Dec. .14, 1953, for the purpose of passing on the plans and specifications for a new grade'school, building. When informed that, since the calling of the meeting, an. appeal from the decision of Mrs. Chappell had been filed at the state office by Sam Kennedy, the board decided to postpone any action until the issue should be decided. The r e p o r t of the decision of the State Superintendent and subsequent a p p r o v a l b y t h e State Board' of E d u c a t i o n was announced Friday. Resumption of the Dec. 14 session was then called for Saturday night. When requested by Earl Noll, chairman of the board, to explain the effects of the decision Stillman stated that the first effect of the decision of the state officials to uphold the decision of Mrs. Chappell is to make her decision final. Another Result The second result is that the decision made it right and proper that the school board proceed with the construction of the proposed elementary school building. He said the board is obligated to carry into effect the decision and may, if necessary, be compelled to do so. The third and last result is that when the action of the board was approved by the state superintendent the board cannot, unless circumstances change materially af- .er the affirmance, reconsider or alter its action. This means, Mr. S t i l l m a n brought out, that whether the present board members are continued in office or new ones are elected March 8, the site of the proposed grade school will continue to be the lots in Sunset View Addition already purchased.

Mr. Stillman a s s u r e d Clough that the matter has already jeen approved by bond attorneys. Will Abid* by Vofe Mr. Kennedy said at the meet- ng that, should the board attempt :o enter into any contract before the election March 8 he would make use of every legal 'technicality that could be found to prevent the sale, of any bonds. He added that there would probably be a new board but that, in any case, he wilt abide by the decision of the electors. Besides the board members and attorneys, about 15 persons attended the meeting. P. W. Fistler asked a number oE questions about matters which he did not understand and R. D. Bobbins, county supervisor for the third district, asked a few. It was brought out that, although the plans and specifications for the proposed building have been in the office of Supt. T. G. Burns since Dec. 1, only one person has called and asked to see them. No Letting Yet ' Stillman said that under no circumstances did he advise the board to hold a letting before the election March 8. M. W. Hughes said that the important thing now is to get things moving as the children need the school. He said lie was not anxious to see how cheap a schoolhouse could be built but to build a good one that will last a long time. He thought it advisable to advertise for bids at once but said that he is strongly opposed to letting a con- Tact until after the election March 8 and reorganization of the board March 15. It was stated that the board hopes to build not just a "six oom building" but a complete school unit to accommodate a kindergarten and six grades with recreation room, furnace and vork room, plumbing and lockers, all of material that will last. Mr. Stillman said that, when the time comes to issue bonds, they will be 'or the exact amount needed for lie building. A resolution was passed approving plans and speci- "ications. After a conference with Hansen and Waggoner, Mason City architects, a meeting to consider advertising for bids for construction of a school building was called at the high school at l p. m. Monday. The architects stated that it was their belief that four weeks is not too long a time for contractors to figure on a contract. Hold Services for I Shirley W.
