PROGRESS-REVIEW PORTE CITY, IOWA, THURSDAY AFTERNOON, FEBRUARY 18, 19W. War Ration Book Registration OFFICIAL Black Hawk County and La Porte City NEWSPAPER Number 7 Approve Sale Of School Typewriters e · Board Ratifies Action of President in Selling Four Machines to Waterloo Firm .Sale of four of La Porte City hi^h school's IS typewriters to a AVaterloo firm, for resale to the federal government, was approved by the schaol board last Thursday night, after a half hour of debate over civcumsturtces of the sale. The board had decided informally at thu January meeting that the typewriters should not be sold j unless requisitioned by the army, but two weeks later the machines were ?old to the Waterloo firm I by Civile Jcnks,. president of the boaid. The sale price was $25 each for the machines, which were five years old but which had been re. eor.iliiioned last summer at a cost of 510 each. Ten days later the Waterloo firm added seven dollars each to the price of the machines, bringing the final sale price to 532. Answering suggestions that the board ought to order the sale voided ami the machines returned,! President Jenks told the board t h a t i SOME LA PORTE CITY YOUNGSTERS xt Week .Canned Goods Sales to End 20th i ,,! the four typewriters had already been sold to the federal govern-j mc-nt, and could not be brought! back without permission f r o m | Washington. | "I don't see what you can do but approve the sale," he Commented. A unanimous vote was then recorded for ratifying the president's action. The board granted a leave of absence for the balance of the school year to Eva Eoyles, veteran grade school teacher who had been offered a position in the relief office at -Waterloo, on condition that she obtain a substitute teacher acceptable to the superintendent of schools and the school board. Mrs. Boyles began w o r k j Monday as a case worker in the i relief office, at a salary of 585, 11 month for 12 months. Her sal-1 ary as a grade teacher has heen S115 a month for nine months. The annual school election will be held this year at the mayor's office, instead of in the school gymnasium, to avoid necessity of moving a voting machine to the school. Two positions are to be filled this year--three-year terms as directors lo succeed E. E. and Howard Van Fleet. Ronglin and Van Fleet said j[ ana ,j cr A j immediately after last Thursday's , .. ?
