Free Door Prizes -- Coffee -- Doughnuts Esslinger Mullan Cle»r Lake, low* Massey - Harris -- Ferguion -- New Idea Dealer WHUT'S THIS HEER WATCH WUTH MISTER? Jewelers are often called upon to tstimate the "value" of a watch. We ar« no exception to this custom. Strangers and friends alike bring them in. The watches submitted are most often the kind bought at sale barn auctions, through "wholesale catalogs," or from itinerant hitch-hikers out to mak« a fast buck. Inasmuch as tht most expensive part of a watch is the time producing mechanism inside the. case, we don't pretend to understand the workings of the human mind which prompts people to hand out good money blindly, so to speak, to a stranger who is here today and gon« tomorrow. If people made these purchases with any d»gre« of confidence in the seller, w* don't believe we would b« called upon to put a "value" on as many watches as we do. Some brought in are actually new, unused watches. But even these, when compared with our regular stock, are at normal prices, seldom a bargain. And, without * service guarantee there would be room for doubt in anyone's mind. · Jt takes good men to male, fm« watches and it fakes ·xp«ri«nce in th« business to select the fin* grades from the ordinary. Just as a ridiculous price on a car makes you suspicious of a worn out motor; so should the same "bait" apply to a watch purchase. When you're not sure, come see us. We will gladly give you an honest estimate about any watch you have been offered. Selling and servicing watches is a large and important part of our business; has been for a Jono time. Come in any time. WE GIVE S H GREEN STAMPS OWEN Watches Gift* Diamonds Jewelry I Repair NEXT TO C O R N E R DRUG C L E A R L A K E POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT RECORD of PROGRESS Since we are actively seeking the support of the voters of the Clear Lake Independent School District in the coming school election on Monday, March S, we feel you, as a voter, should know what we have done in the past few years to warrant reelection. Our building problems are not of recent origin. The crowded condition in our schools has been shaping up for several years. In order that you--the taxpayers--know what planning has been involved we are going to tell you--step by step--the action we have taken. Soon after we were elected to our first term in 1948 the older board members, Earl Noll, E. L. Yeager and Roscoe Miller, together with Supt. T. G. Burns, told us that surveys showed that our classrooms would be crowded in another five years. At nearly every board meeting this problem was discussed in general terms. In January, 1950, it was decided by the board to seek the advice of people interested in the healthy, progress of our school \system. Because of their direct connection with our schools, the PTA was the first group consulted. We also asked several service groups to send representatives to a series of meetings out of which would come an overall plan for the necessary future ex- 1 pansion of school facilities. This long-range program included: 1. The enlargement of Lincoln School to a complete unit-kindergarten through sixth grade with adequate facilities for health and recreation. 2. Because surveys showed a definite growth in the North Shore area, the construction of another complete elementary unit in that part of the city seemed advisable. 3. It seemed likely at that time that sfill another elementary unit might be needed in another section of the city, the exact location to be determined when the need arose. · 4. The enlargement of our high school and vocational facilities. Please bear in mind that these recommendations came from the PEOPLE--they were not private ideas of just the school board members. In order to help aleviate our classroom needs while we were working on our program, we set about converting store rooms basement rooms, music rooms and janitor quarters to classrooms as conditions required. ' · A bond issue was passed to enlarge Lincoln School, this being done m line with the recommendations of the discussion groups. Also, a special tax Jevy to purchase sites and accumulate money for future building or remodeling was passed and after much serious thought and investigation the Sunset View site was purchased. * ,v. year a ?° the voters o£ the district approved a bo'nd issue for the construction of an elementary school on the Sunset View site by the necessary 60% majority. Don't be misled! At no time did the school board even intimate that this building would not be ^ e °L /" this site. On the contrary, every bit of publicity on the bond issue CLEARLY set forth that the building WOULD be built on the Sunset View Site. The bond issue was for $295,000. Through much study and after m a n y consultations with the architects, the building was simplified until the current estimate is approximately $240,000. A cheaper building, with shorter life expectancy, greater fire hazard and substantially higher maintenance and insurance costs could be built. But we firmly believe that Clear Lake should have the best facilities possible for our children, Over a period of years savings from a BETTER building will more than offset a higher initial cost. This is not only our idea--it is the studied opinion of reliable architects and reputable contractors. We realize that our children pass through the classrooms but once--the facilities should be the best we can provide. We also KNOW they should be as safe as we can humanly make them. We refuse to set a nrice on the life of a child. Since we are well aware that all of the converted space is now m use, we realize that our need for more rooms is urgent. We have strongly opposed letting a contract before election and before a new board is sworn in. But we know the duty is clearly ours to set in motion the necessary machinery to get the program under way. The site has been established by the County Superintendent of Schools, the State Superintendent of Public Instruction and the State Board of Education. The bonds have been voted We not only have every legal right to proceed--we have a direct obligation to proceed. For that reason we have favored advertising for bids on the new school--the bids NOT TO BE OPENED until over two weeks following the election. We submit to YOU-the voters-that our record is one consistent with the duties imposed upon us by our oath of office. We submit that, contrary to many loose charges, our record is one of co-operation with constructive people interested in the welfare of our children. On that record we are proud to stand and to solicit your active support in the March 8th election.
