Broadway, was re-elected president of the Board of Education of District 38 at an organizational meeting Monday night.

Douglas Connell was re-elected with 464 votes. Mrs. Margery Salaway received 372 votes and Elmo Ferrenberg 316. Dr. Johnson administered the oath of office to Morris and Connell. Dr. J. Stafford Weelis was reelected secretary of the board School board meetings will continue to be on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the office of Richard Flynn, superintendent.

The National Bank of Monmouth was approved as custodian for the school funds. The board approved a $19,250 athletic budget. Flynn said the budget for the 1973-1974 school year was about the same as for the past few years. Flynn reported that he had met Monday with a representa* tive of the Illinois School Build ing Commission concerning plans for the new schools to be built at Willits and Garfield. He said he was advised that the bid date might be changed from the presently scheduled May 3. The change is being contemplated, according to Flynn, because there are several other contract bids to be let on that date. "They mentioned moving it either a few days sooner or a few days later," said Flynn, "and I can assure you I will try to have it scheduled for a few days sooner." Flynn said the possibility also exists that the bids may be opened at Mon­ mouth rather than at Spring field as is currently planned. Flynn also discussed the availability of Title I funds needed for the re-employmeht of special reading teachers in the district. He said it now appears that the district may receive abbut ?5 per cent of the amount allotted this past year through ttie Title I program. Until a decision is made concerning the Title I funds, vacancies in the elementary schools will not be filled, Flynn said. The Vacancies are to be kept open so that the district will have positions to offer the special reading teachers if funds are not available to retain them in their present capacities. Transfers were approved for Mrs. Mary Baldridge who has been teaching physical education and will teach kindergarten at Willits School, and for Mrs. Barbara Immler who will transfer from the second grade to kindergarten at Lincoln School. Flynn said the board would attempt to find a man to teach the pliysical education classes. Wage Dispute Causes Strike By Evanston Bus Operators EVANSTON, 111.

The public is the victim of every strike . . . maybe a little walking will do them good."

Utah Mother Is Preparing For Lone Ocean Crossing PRICE, Utah (UPI) - After several delays, survival training teacher Shirley Haycock is ready to tackle the Atlantic's waves and winds in a 17-foot canoe. The 40-year-old Utah mother says "all problems have been surmounted," a^d she plans to lash her custom made boat atop her Volkswagen and leave for the East Coast Thursday. From Washington, D.C., she and her companion, Bob Geedy a 38-year-old auto mechanic from Manti, Utah, plan to cross the Atlantic Ocean to Listen, Portugal, in an estimated 27 days. She said the purpose of her voyage was to raise money for a senior citizens' center in rural Utah. In particular, she wants to build a center in Carbon County where she is the director of senior citizens' services. The canoe is christened "Senior Citizens' Ark." "I hope that people don't get so wrapped up in the adventure aspect of the trip that they forget the real reason for it," she said. In preparing for the sea journey, Mrs. Haycock took the boat out on the Great Salt Lake Saturday and Sunday. "The sailing was excellent, and only a few adjustments were needed," she said. The fiberglass craft was specially built for the trip by a Salt Lake City canoe company, and has "everything needed to make it seaworthy" said the survival training teacher who likes to run the rapids of the Colorado River.
