Attorney Says School Site Can Be Changed by Election M. -- * The statement thai the Sunsc, View School site i s ' f i n a l , regan( less of the outcome or the Marc! 8 school election, was challcngec Wednesday by u. F. Clough, Ma son City, attorney for Sam Ken- After the services lunch ;crved at the home of Mr. ncdy, who appealed,unsuccessfully f ' , Mrs ', r 'f ar * the board's decision on the site all ^ ?** wd * c . ny at the way to the State Superintendent 9l : ll .. Sl -.. 1 '.. rlda ^ ni of Public Instruction. E. B. Stillman, Clear Lake, attorney for the school board, reported at (he last board meeting that the site could not be changed regardless of wiio arc chosen members of the school board March 8. The decision of the Slate Superintendent is final, dough conceded, unless conditions are changed aft- erwurrl. A change in the altitude of tiie electors, as shown in an election, lias been construed by the Iowa Supreme Court as a change in conditions, however, the attorney contended. Clough quoted a Supreme Court decision in 1907 as authority. In that case the school board of Clearfield in Tnylor County changed the site following a vote in which the electors refused to approve bonds tor a building on the site approved by the Slate Superintendent's decision. A petition also was signed by a large majority of the legal voters in the district asking for a ;hangc of site. The Supreme Court decision itatcd in the subsequent action to compel the board to retain the old site: "Again it is conceded by all that after a decision by either the county or state superintendent, the )oard may relocate the site if there be a material change in the condi- -ion. . . It (the board) selected a new location on account of the changes in the conditions and this 't had a right to do." Clough commented: "The above case clearly establishes that the school board may rely upon the votes expressed by the electors to show a change in conditions, as well also upon a petition signed by he electors." A change in the altitude of the voters, as shown in the March 8 election, would be "adequate to ustify the new board in making a new decision as to a site for' the school," Clough concludes. for Mrs. Frank Wilder, 64, who her home, 704 S. , morning, were held :it the Wilcox Funeral Home Tuesday afternoon.

In our final appeal to Jessie Parker, the School Board was upheld as within their legal rights in selecting the Sunset View site. Our contention was that this site was · very bad site, inconvenient for the children, close to a noisy railroad and having such an over saturated underground condition that building costs would be vary excessive. Before we filed our, first appeal, we were advised by an attorney, experienced In school affairs, that we could not get a favorable decision from the County Superintendent no matter how strong our evidence might be. H* was ICO per cent right. We went ahead on the theory that we could consume enough time so that the people of Clear Lake could decide on this.issue for themselves at the March 8th school election. This battle has now been won. Most of the testimony offered by the school board was by people directly interested financially or otherwise. Some of the statements made were so far out of line as to ludicrous. Perhaps nothing, however, was more ridiculous than no matter this f ip decisions was elected on March 8th, the board would be one minute.
