(Jarden City Telegram WedneHday, [November 30, 1977 Page 15 Governor Won't Suggest Altering School Finance Act TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Gov. Robert F. Bennett said today he will recommend no major revisions in the state's School Finance Act to the 1978 Legislature. The reason, the governor said in an address before the Kansas Association of School Boards, is that with two major court suits pending challenging the sufficiency of the present formula under FRANK'S STEAMWAY CARPET & UPHOLSTERY CLEANING Frank Musquiz Call 276 3737 which state aid is distributed to local school districts it might be wasted effort to make any changes. "Until we can determine what the constitutional requirements will be, this would be a poor time to make major revisions in the school finance formula," Bennett told the school board members and administrators. "It is going to be difficult to know what we should do until we have some court guidelines. "For this reason, it is highly unlikely at this time that we will make any recommenda- tions for major changes in the formula." The present school finance formula is designed to "power equalize" the distribution of slate aid to local school districts in an attempt to equalize the total per-pupil support of elementary and secondary education among the state's 300-plus local school districts. Poorer districts as far as local wealth is concerned receive a higher percentage of state aid than the so-called rich districts so that students in the poor districts in theory have just as much financial support for their education as those in the rich districts. Bennett also took issue in his speech with an assertion by an earlier speaker at the organization's annual convention. Mrs. Ann H. Barkelew, public information officer for the Los Angeles County superintendent of schools, told Electronic Gadgets, Clothes Catch Most Shoppers' Eyes 8 TRACK TAPES WHOLESALE & RETAIL A FINE SELECTION OF WESTERN-EASY LISTENING POPULAR-CLASSICAL-ROCK MODERN RADIO-T.V. SERVICE Your Zenith Sales & Service Dealer Serving Western Kansas For 30 Years ED COX-OWNER 626 N. 8TH GARDEN CITY, KS. 275-5251 By The Associated Press Christmas, shoppers are splitting their spending this year between electronic gadgets like video games and coldweather necessities like warm clothes, according to retailers who say they expect a good selling season. Only one store manager contacted in an Associated Press spot check mentioned the selective strike by East and Gulf coast longshoremen and he said it had caused no serious problems. The buying generally started the day after Thanksgiving. Herb Glaser, executive vice president of J. L. Hudson Co. department store in Detroit, said about 3,500 to 4,000 children went through the line to see Santa Claus on Friday. The number was 1,000 to 1,500 higher than the same day in 1976.

Serving Only USOA B*ef Glaser said the memory of last winter's cold, combined with snow on Friday and over the weekend, helped sales of heavy outer clothing. He reported a big rush for knit goods like scarves and gloves. For the home, the best early sellers were video games and food processing items, Glaser said. Chuck Huskinson, operations manager at J.C. Penney's in Salt Lake City, said sales were "much belter than last year, quite a bit better." The most popular items? Luxury goods like stereos, video games and cameras — "especially cameras." In Schaumburg, a Chicago suburb, Sears store manager John P. Maloney said: "Sales are going very well for us. Crowds were much larger than we expected." He said customers alternated between luxury goods — "Video games are very big again this year" — and practical things — lightweight irons, women's boots and garage door openers. For some shoppers, money apparently is no object. "It's amazing the number of gold rings, diamonds and watches we're selling. Cameras and stereos also are doing very well," said Bernie Gordon, general manager for four JAFCO department stores in the Seattle area. A spokesman for Lazarus, Columbus' biggest department store, said expensive items like furs and video tape recording systems at around $1,000 each were going well.

"II seems like an item lhat could catch on," he said, bul added, "There's no single (gimmick) item lhal stands out like Ihe pet rock of a couple years ago." A cold weekend in Atlanta — temperalures in Ihe 20s — boosted sales of outerwear and sweaters. "The weather was most cooperative," said a spokesman for Davison's, describing Thanksgiving weekend sales as record breaking. In addition to the warm clothing, the spokesman said people were buying "luxury goods, from fine jewelry and furs to TV recorders.

But sharing that day with both parent and grandparent is indeed a rarity. Monday night, Nov. 28, a baby girl was born to Mike and Candy Katz, of Deerfield, at the Kearny County Hospital in Lakin. Her father, 27, was born Nov. 28, 1950. Mike's father, Robert Kalz, 48, also of Deerfield, was born Nov. 28, 1929. As of Tuesday morning, the new arrival had yet to be named. She has a brother, Shane, 4, and a sister, Amy, 9, at home. among your organization, the teachers' organization, the Democrats, the Republicans, those who live in the cities or those who live on the farms that education is, and has been, and, indeed, will continue to be a No. 1 priority in this state," Bennett said. In the three years he has been governor, Bennett said, state aid for elementary and secondary education has risen 38.5 percent, from $219 million to $303.3 million per year; aid for special education has dou bled, aid to community junior colleges had risen nearly 25 per cent, and state support of vocational education has more than doubled. "All of this indicates, I think, that your state government, your legislature and your governor have recognized the importance of education to this state," Bennett said. "It is a commitment we have made, and it is a commitment we intend to keep." But there is concern over public education, the governor reminded. "The state continues to put more and more dollars into education, and the local property taxpayers continue to put more and more dollars into education, and yet enrollments continue to drop and we hear of problems in the proficiency of our students," Bennett said.
