HAMH.TON-WALTHAM-ELGW-CALVERT To Determine Reorganization Suggestions Farm Families Asked Community Interest Completion of -the Cerro Gordo county survey on which school district reorganization plans will be based was the principal topic of discussion at the meeting of the county board of education Wednesday afternoon. Mrs. Hazel V. Chappell, county superintendent of schools and executive officer of the board, was authorized to hire the help needed to complete the work promptly. Members of the board also agreed to help acquaint school patrons with the program by attending meetings when asked. One part of the survey requiring public co-operation already has been started with the assistance of the Farm Bureau, Mrs. Chappell pointed out. Township school chairmen of the Farm Bureau are distributing 2-page questionnaires which will be used to show on a map the areas which have a common community interest. Survey Not Personal The questionnaire lists retail and other trade activities, professional services, religious, educational, recreational and social activities and asks each family to check to which town or city they go for that activity. There is nothing personal about the survey, Mrs. Chappell emphasized, but the family name must be shown on the report in order that it can be included on the spot map being prepared which now shows the location of every farm home in the county. ^Another part of the survey is added, and plans are made only the every-puoil test being given for submission to the voters who 6th, 7th and 8th grade pupils will decide whether to adopt throughout Iowa during January, them. W, I. S. D. Alumni and Team Meet for Party Here Poshusta and Lee in Charge of Project More than 50 alumni and former students of the Iowa School for the Deaf at Council Bluffs gathered at the Soda Grill for a steak dinner and entertainment Wednesday night following the I. S. D.-Mohawk basketball game. Members of the Bobcat team were special guests. "There was a genuine spirit of reunion among the adult deaf, our school and our players," Lloyd E.

In 1900 more than half the population of the county was rur- schools and grades 3 to 9 in town and city schools. To Explain Purpose The surveys and reorganization purposes are to be explained in a number of meetings throughout the county in January, Mrs. Chappell said. First of these will be the one at Ventura on the evening of Jan. 5 when the vocational agriculture night school has invited the community to hear John G. Shultz, Des Moines, from the division of administration and finance of the state department of public instruction. Mrs. Chappell and members of the county board of education will attend Farm Bureau and other meetings to help explain the work. Members of the board are Earl M. Dean, Mason City, chairman; Charles Hansen, Rockwell; Herman Hanson, Plymouth; G. E. Raecker, Meservey, and Leo Stork, Clear Lake. Board Has No Choice Plans already have been made for all township Farm Bureau meetings to discuss education and school district reorganization, including taxation, during the January and February meetings. One already scheduled is the Mount Vernon township meeting at Burchinal hall Jan. 17 at 8 p. m. with Mrs. Chappell as the speaker. The survey and reorganization plans are not a project of the board of education from choice, the superintendent pointed out, but were made their duty by the law which created the board. The law requires '{hat the board: "Shall make detailed studies and surveys of the school districts within the county and the adjacent territory for the purpose of promoting such reorganization as will make it possible to operate the schools more economically and will bring about the higher standards of education in the schools." Purpose Better Schools "In other words," said Mrs. Chappell, "the purpose of reorganization is to have better schools at a reasonable cost." The law also provides that the state department shall provide the plans and forms for the surveys which must be made by the county boards. The county board consequently has little discretion in the ma.tter. The board, however, is not opposed to reorganization, Mrs. Chappel pointed out. It is stated in the law itself that it is the policy of the state "to encourage by the granting of state aid the reorganization of school districts into such units as are necessary, economical and efficient and which will insure an equal opportunity to all the children of the state." Voters Make Decision The voters will make the final decision in reorganization, she To all our Patrons and Friends Merry Christmas and Happy New Year "Remember.

W. F. Wahrer, secretary-treasurer, announced that the dividend which was voted recently by the board of directors represents a 7 per cent return to member-stockholders in their investment in National Farm Loan association stock. This makes a total of 12 per cent in dividends paid in 1948. These dividends are possible because of dividends paid to the association by the Federal Land Bank of Omaha, which is owned entirely by the North Central and other National Farm Loan associations in a 4-state district. These earnings paid to the mem- bei--stockholders by this co-oper- iive plan of long term lending, materially reduce the net interest rates. On the newer loans the net cost on this basis will average less than 3i per cent. On the older loans where there has been greater reduction in principal' the net rate runs even lower. Directors of the North Central National Farm Loan association are R. M. Hall, Clear Lake, president; W. L. Jackson, Rudd, vice president; W. A. Alitz, Manly; R. J. Brown, Rockford, and Lloyd , Swann, Osage. Wahrer reports a substantial increase in membership for 1948 and more than a half million in new funds loaned in the 4 county district. * - - *"• Offer Yule Programs Swaledale — Christmas programs will be presented by the Sunday schools in the Methodist, the First Baptist, and the Tabernacle Baptist churches Friday evening.
