20 Golesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, III. Wednesdov, Aug, 7, 1963 Supt. Craf ton Resigns to Take Position at Mundelein MONMOUTH—The regular meeting of the Board of Education of District 38, held Tuesday evening at Monmouth High School, was highlighted by the surprise resignation of Paul M. Crafton, superintendent of schools. Crafton had announced earlier in the year his intention to resign at the close' of the coming school year but his resignation last evening, to take effect Sept. 1, was a complete surprise to the board. In his letter of resignation Crafton stated he had accepted employment at Mundelein College in Chicago as assistant director of admissions. He further stated he regretted the abruptness of his resignation and particularly the time just at the start of a school year but the opportunity for him was now and he felt he must avail himself of it. Realizing the position his resignation placed the school system in, Crafton offered his services as acting superintendent until such time as a suitable replacement could be found. The board agreed to have Mr. Crafton, who has served as superintendent at Monmouth for the past 17 years, to remain on as acting superintendent at half his present salary. Crafton will devote his weekends and holidays to the Monmouth public school system and will work through his secretary, Mrs. Mary Jane Uddin, to whom the board granted a $900-a-year salary increase to compensate for additional work and hours she will have to put in. Mr. Crafton indicated he intended to maintain his home in Monmouth at least until next summer. Two Other Jobs Open With Crafton's resignation three positions are now open in the system. In addition to a superintendent there is still a need for a teacher of advanced math and a girls' counselor. Although the two positions have not been filled, some interest has been shown during the past weeks for the jobs and it is felt they will be filled before the beginning of school some three weeks hence. Give Land for Roadway In other business conducted at last night's meeting the board approved the dedication to the CitJ of Monmouth of 60 feet of land on the north side of the Lincoln School property on South 11th Street for a road to a proposed subdivision belonging to Paul Warfield. With the granting of the land for a street, Warfield will seek annexation into the city and develop an area of 15 lots. The lots will have homes in the $20,000 range which would give the city approximately $3,700 in additional tax revenue. The board gave approval for the purchase of a 6x6x7%-foot deep freeze at a cost of $1,457 from the Commercial Refrigeration Co. The freezer will be used at Central Junior High School for surplus commodities received from the federal government for use in the hot lunch program at the school. A number of bids for items for use during the school year were accepted last night, including a bid for coal at $7.40 a ton from Frank M. Cavanaugh; No. 2 grade oil from the M & B Oil Co., at .0883 per gallon; Standard Oil for No. 6 oil at .0880 per gallon; Maple City Dairy will supply dispenser milk at 56 cents a gallon and 4Vi cent per half pint; Knox Laundry will supply towels to the high school, Central Junior High and pick up towels at the Warren County YMCA for high school swimming at .025 per towel. Barnes Super-Valu store was awarded the contract to supply bakery goods to the hot lunch program. Leland Brooks Sr. was approved for employment as a janitor at a salary of $4000 a year. Call Junior College Parley Earl Carwile, secretary of the board announced a meeting to day evening regarding the proposed Junior College. Mr. Crafton requested and was granted approval by the board to call together a group of interested lay people and school personnel in an effort to set up a program for gifted children. Mr. Crafton said he hoped to have some ideas and suggestions ready to present before the board before the next meeting on the subject. Crafton also reminded board members of the school plant inspection on Aug. 28 and the reception for new teachers Aug. 29. The 1962-1963 annual report to the Board of Education of District 38, prepared by Crafton, was distributed which gave a full account of activities during the year including special service reports and principal's • reports. In the booklet Crafton stated there are forces working against us—limited finances, indifference, willful neglect, some defiant practices—but there are also forces working for us—interested parents, willing and well-behaved children for the most part, and a well-qualified and dedicated faculty.

Those Cows in That Shelter— They're Uneasy ELKHORN, Neb. (UPI) — A herd of 30 dairy cows locked in a fallout shelter with a Guernsey bull got off to a nervous start Tuesday. Their nervousness was blamed in part on the fact that spectators were present. Cameras flashed as the cows, all dry Guernseys, one Guernsey bull and two University of Nebraska seniors assigned as attendants, went into the underground shelter for a two- week period to determine among other things, if the cattle will become bored. The animals are being housed in be held at the high school Mon- a shelter designed by Roberts Mfckelberry's King Size Franks are too long for this ad. But they're made to fit the hot-dog bun exactly. Try one and see! & @ Mickelberrv's ®@ Dairy to accommodate 200 cows in the event of an atomic attack. The shelter has special pens for breeding bulls, plus living quarters for up to three attendants and special storage space for cattle feed. Dennis Defrain of Fairbury and Arthur E. Anderson Jr. of Genoa, students in the dairy animal husbandry division at the University of Nebraska college of agriculture, will live in the shelter and keep check on the animals. Their only contact with the outside world will be a radio rigged up in case of an emergency. The Office of Civil Defense and U.S. Department of Agriculture are participating in the test, believed to be the first of its kind. Mechanical engineer Frank Flanigan of the University of Florida is conducting the test under contract with the OCD. His three- man crew will monitor such things as temperature, respiration, heartbeat of the cows, humidity and air flow in the shelter. Officials of the dairy company hope to determine how much food and water would be needed for survival, how sleeping habits are affected, if the cattle need more exercise, and if they become bored over it ajl.
