MRS. ARDETH HALVERSOfi News editor July 21, 1955 Published By The Upper Des Molnei Publishing Co., Algona, Iowa Sentral Bond Issue Fails To Get Needed 60% Vote Sentral Community School district voters did not give the required 60% majority in favor oi a bond issue for $450,000 to construct a new Sentral district higu school, Monday. The vote in favor was 447; those against totaled 410. There were 11 spoiled ballots. The majority in favor was 52%. In a vote on the same question, held earlier this year, the proposal also failed, but did have a 57% majority. In the first vote the location was set . 1V4 miles north of the location proposed in the second vote. The most recent location is on the blacktop road between Fenton and Lone' Rock. The Sentral district is composed of the areas of the former Lone Rock-Fenton-Seneca school districts. What the future may hold is now the question. The chief problem seems to be the location. In both elections, a majority (but not the required 60%) favored the idea of constructing a new high school to serve all the three areas. But the big obstacle is "where to put it." In the first vote, there was some objection that the location was a little too far north. In the second vote, the objection was that it was a little top far south. The school district intended to transport all high school students by school bus to any new high school erected, regardless of where it was. was.
