6-Attetm fl<».) Uppftf Pea Metoii Thursday, December 1, 1955 Small Turnout At Rally For School Bond Issue About 75 persons attended the Open Forum meeting at the high school, last Monday evening, to discuss the pros and con? of a $544,000 bond issue for new construction and real estate purchases on behalf of the Algona Community School district. The bond issue comes to a vote next Monday, Dec. 5. Voting will be from 12 noon to 7 p.m. at the high school. Perry Collins, school board president, presided, and opened the meeting with a general outline of the situation, followed by remarks from Supt. O. B. Laing on the subject of school enrollments and trends. Eugene Hutchins, board member, also reviewed the needs and said "we think there is no use in trying to remodel, and it is better to get new construction." A. M. Quintard. County Supt. of schools, ; spoke from the floor. In general the proposed bond issue if approved would finance rnnstruction of a new unit adjacent to the present Bryant school, would add a wing to the Lucia Wallace school, would enable the board to acquire land and build a primary school east (if the Northwestern tracks, and provide funds to purchase a site lor a new high school and athletic field. Questioned on the thinking with regard to talk .of a new high school and athletic field, Collins said that if and when a new school would be built on the selected site, the present high school would probably become a ..junior high caring for grades 7. S and 9, and the new school taking care of grades 10, 11, 12. He added that the present Third Ward school does not adapt itself in design or location to make it worthwhile to expand there. The Third Ward, event- ually, would be eliminated ns a school, but not until the second phase- of the present planning is reached, which would be after the accomplishments of the pending bond issue. This bond issue would be paid off on the basis of payments by taxes over a 20-year period. Collins urged everyone to "vote for that which they favor and against that which they do not favor." Questioned on tho subject of the size of classrooms he said the board did not believe in building small classrooms because they did not think they were good classrooms. Another question concerned the proposal to buy about 25 acres for a future senior high school site. The question was asked why so much ground was necessary. Collins explained that state laws made it mandatory that if an athletic field site is desired it must be included in the bond proposal, and added that today, in looking ahead, much parking space for faculty and student cars is needed. One member of the audience remarked thai if we were looking ahead that far, "maybe we better put in a landing strip, too." There was considerable discussion of possible population trends, and the subject of taxation was touched upon briefly. Collins added the final thought that "you're going to pay for it whether you get jt or not." Mr and Mrs Dick Post had as their guests from Thursday until Sunday, Mrs Post's mother, Mrs Lillian White of Manilla and her brother and sister-in-law, Mr and Mrs Maury White of Des Moines UDM Classifieds Pay Dividends THE "PICK O' THE CROP!
