Also to be heard during the course of the performance is the well- known anthem, "God So Loved the World." Soloists for THE CRUCIFIXION will be tenor Dennis Feekes of Rock Valley, Iowa and bass Roy Beukelman of Corsica, South Dakota, The community is ur-f ged to attend this outstanding event, There will be no admission charge, but an offering will be received at the close' of the program to help defray the cost of materials In preparation for the choir's performance at American Reformed Church, the first graders from Maurice to Orange City. Then take O.C.'s second grade to Maurice and their third grade to O.C. --etc. The reasoning was that the education should be the same for all the children. Of the 126 signatures, no names were tied specifically to any one of the three proposals. In the next four years the number of Maurice kinder- garteners Is expected to be 8 in 73, and 11 during each of the next three years. One major concern of the parents of Maurice is that it takes a bus 56 minutes to get from O.C. to Maurice. It then was proposed from the floor that O.C. send half of a given class to equal out the number of enrolled students. Also suggested was the possiblity of combining Maurice's kindergarten and first grade. Elementary principal Henry Van Aartsen explained that this was not educationally sound. Another reasoning behind the idea of bringing the 5 grades from Maurice was that the junior high needs more room because in the next few years there will be a large increase in students attending junior high. "More room is a necessity," said junior high principal Leonard Kromen- dyk. Among the current problems is the lunch room is on the stage, the halls are cluttered with machines and the nurse's office is in the laundry room. It was agreed the junior high has recently been denied their share' of improvements. Bringing the five Maurice grades to O.C. would mean the room they are •vacating would quickly be taken for use by the Jr. High. The industrial arts, and the home economics programs need expansion and by removing the children to O.C. will allow these programs to grow. After the open forum discussion the Maurice people thanked Dr. Hassebroek for the time to discuss their views. After discussion by the board and administration a vote on the motion to have kindergarteners and first through fourth grades bussed to the O.C. building was called for. The vote was split so president Hassebroek broke the tie voting for the proposal. The only new business was that girls track has been authorized and that 63 are attending practice, coached by Jody De Haan. Central Telephone to spend $4,617,500 in Iowa in 1972 In its Iowa Division.
