As the forms come into the office they will remain sealed- and will be numbered consecutively and filed just as they come out of the mail bag. Data Processing will supply a list of numbers in order of priority from which the successful applicants will be drawn. Here's how the system will work: Suppose that the first five numbers on the list from Data Processing read-9987, 432, 12, 11003, 5123. From the files at the Commission's Des Moines office those forms, still sealed, will be drawn. Suppose that the form numbered 9987 contains two names, form number 432 contains one name, form number 12 contains five names, form number 11003 contains three names and form number 5123 contains one name. For those five numbers we would have 12 hunters who would receive a shotgun deer license. This . system would be carried OR down the list until the 9,999th license has been issued. The last form drawn may contain from one to five applicants names, therefore the number of licenses issued may vary from 10,000 to 10,004 depending on the number of applicants in the last form drawn. All unsuccessful applicants will have their unopened form mailed back to them with their money still inside. By using the machine system, the Commission hopes to eliminate any elements, such as late mailing, that might keep an ap- licant from getting a fair chance MAYNARD- Max Huffman, a 1961 graduate of the State College of Iowa, Ames, has been selected by the West Central board of education to fill the football coaching vacancy created by the resignation of Howard Vernon, who accepted the head coaching job at East Waterloo.

MAYNARD- Voters in the West Central Community school district will find two propositions on the ballot when they go to the polls on Monday Sept. 10, to vote on two directors to fill the expired terms of Don Fish and Deanne Davis. Proposition one will ask the voters to approve the use of an am- mount up to $13,000 of the schoolhouse fund to build and equip a school bus garage. Proposition two will ask the voters to approve a plan to set up director districts for the future election of directors. The garage proposed in proposition one would house eight buses and include a workshop for minor repairs and for maintenance of busses. The district now operates 12 busses which travel 130,000 miles per year and use 12,000 gallons of gasoline. Experience has shown that in the operation of fleets where more than five busses are used considerable saving results from having a gas pump on the grounds and a foreman to do the greasing and minor repairs. It follows also that housed busses will last longer. Since the depreciation is about $800 per year, the extension of the use of the busses for an additional on« or two years is a substantial factor where there are 12 busses. Also a foreman on the grounds will provide daily checks of busses and maintenance. The plan to set up director districts as proposed in the second plan has been presented by a committee of citizens previously appointed by the board of education. It provides for the following five districts. No. 1 — Center township which includes Randalia, Banks and Westfield townships: area is 33 sections, population 554 persons. -N0i>2 — Freemont townsnip except the east row of sections and including Westgate: area is 18 and one-half sections, population 559 persons. No. 3 — •East row of sections in B'reemont township, Oran and Jefferson townships and the west four rows of sections in Harlan township (excluding Maynard): area 34 and one-half sections, population 529. No. 4 — Town of Maynard, population 515. m No. 5 — Two east rows of sections in Harlan township and Smithfield township: area 29 sections, population 492. The committee which worked out the plan of these districts was made up by Maynard Menefee, president; Keith Baker, vice-chairman; Russell Lockard, secretary; William Adrian, Lavern Grimm, Ralph Jipson, Dale Alshouse, Raymond Clefisch, Robert Block, A. F. Bergman, John McFadden and Robert Eitel. Should the voters approve the proposition to create these districts at the Sept. 10 election, an election to vote on all five director positions would be required before June 10, I!*i3, the new directors to take office on July 1, 1963. Further recommendations of the committee were that all voters be eligible to vote on all directors, and that each district provide a nominating committee to assure that there are candidates for election.
