12 THE NEWS-HERALD Franklin and Oil City, Pa. Thursday, April 19, 1956 Check Received For Authority; Funds Invested TITUSVILLE - Final financial Arrangements on the bond issue for the city's new sewage treatment plant were completed yesterday by Municipal Authority officials in Pittsburgh. Four members of the group delivered the bonds to the Mellon National Bank and Trust Co., trustees for the issue, according to Herbert E. Varnum, Authority solicitor. In turn, the Authority received $750,000 for the bonds, but only got a glimpse of the check since the money was quickly invested. Dr. C. M. Sonne, chairman; J. J. O'Shea, vice chairman; and W, A. Bloom, secretary, were the other members of the Authority who took part in the transactions. An estimated $670,000 of the total received for the bonds was invested in government notes, This working capital will draw two per cent interest, or between $3,000 and $4,000 per year, the solicitor explained. The remainder of the total sum will be held by the Pittsburgh bank and the Authority will draw from it to pay contracting costs when the need arises. The invested money will be withdrawn as additional funds are required. The bonds were sold on February 27 to Moore, Leonard and Lynch, a Pittsburgh bond house. The average net interest cost is 3.17 per cent over a 30-year period.

Decision Due June 1 1 On Blue Jean Issue TIONESTA A verdict over the explosive blue jean issue has been postponed until June 11 following dismissal of school for summer va cation. During a court hearing here yesterday, an estimated 18 witnesses testified during the session. Judge Alexander C. Flick of Warren County, sitting as a court of equity in Forest County Common Pleas Court, heard testimony for two hours in the morning and most of the afternoon on the West Forest High School case. Two Forest County associate judges also sat on the bench. Arthur Rowe of Jamiesou Station, who is sparkplugging the parents' fight against school officials to permit girls to wear jeans, said he was pleased with the hearing. But, he exclaimed, "If we don't win the case this time, we'll take it to Superior Court!" Attorney Gerald McGill of the law firm of McGill & McGill of Oil City represented the group of parents who are fighting the West Forest Joint School Board ban on the wearing of blue jeans, pedal pushers, slacks and Bermuda shorts to school by high school girls. The ban went into effect the first of the year. Some girls defied it but were not permitted to attend classes. For the board, W. Scott Calder-wood of the Warren law firm of Alexander, Clark & Mervine led the defense. Attorney McGill said he was prepared to present his brief but that the board's attorney did not have his ready at the time. The judges gave Attorney Calderwood five days to file his brief.

KL DVANJJ 31M3TH FRANKLIN JEWELRY COMPANY 215 SENECA ST. OIL CITY The parents sought to file an injunction against the board to make it lift its ban, They thought the board's action was "arbitrary" rather than reasonable." M. A. Carringer of Tionesta had been called in originally by the board to handle the case, but he reportedly acted only as counsel today. He declined to comment on the case. Mr. Rowe said an estimated six witnesses testified for the board, and eight adults and four 13-year-old girls for the parents. The main arguments for the parents presented, he said, were that jeans were warmer in winter, more economical, easier to take care of than dresses and more appropriate for winter. The board witnesses, who included district high school principals as well as teachers, maintained that dresses were more feminine and that the schools should teach girls to be young ladies and not tomboys, Mr. Rowe said. The court room was not as full as had been expected, but a large number of parents both for and against the ban were present. Obituary Richard W. Morris TITUSVILLE - Rev.
