ASK FDR BOND ISSUE
School Board Will Present
Plan to Council.
NOT IN HURRY FOR ACTION
Matter Will Not be Pressed at This
I Time, But Trustees Oesire to Hsve
Request for Authority Put Before
t Present Legislature.
Although It does not ?iah to raise
?the question of a new High school
building at this time, the board ot
school trustees will a*ik the city coun?
cil to seek permission from the pres?
ent legislature to issue Slno.ooo M
bonds or to rauWi thereof as may be
necessary for the building of such a
school. The trutets probably will
I present the matter to. the council
committee on finance at Its regular
?meeting next month so that if 'he
action of the council Is favorable the
matter can be presented to the legis?
lature before It adjourns at the end
of next month.
In the opinion of the school trus?
tees u n'*w high school building witb
Jn the next two years will be a ne?
cessity. They point cut that on Feb?
ruary* 1, when the serai-annual pro?
motions are made, three school
grade.s will be crowded out of 'he
Central building to make rorm for Uta
High school and that next September
one or two more will be crowded out.
This overflow from the school must
?be taken care of In the Bast End,
-End buildings and the trustee* claim
?hat the parent.; of the pupils crowd?
ed out of the Crnrril school will raise |
Want to be Ready.
The trustees cay that they do not
ask the council to" decide on an is?
suance of bonds at th*s time, but |
ihpy do ask that the council place it?
self In a position to be able to ?nb
roit the question to the vote of thai
people whenever the voters make a j
demand for It.
The trustees further claim tfiat the
High school, whenever built, must g<> ]
either to North End or East End.
order to secure the ground that i-ueh j
a school should have. They further)
cintend that if the city annexes the
territory now being considered andj
improvement bonds are issued, it
would be wise for the council to con?
sider the advkabiiity of putting a
part tf the proceeds of such bonds
in a new High school building.
Will Cause Debate.
The matter of seeking permission
irom the legislature to issue the
bonds for a High school probably will
cause a lengthy debate before the
council. While in favor of having
such a building, many of the council
men do not think the city can afford!
such a building for several years at
least. In the opinion of some, the)
work of the board of assessment,
which .Iudge Harham is to appoint to|
make a new assessment this year,
will decide the matter. If the asses?
sors raise the assessment on personal
arid realty properly, the Jllgh school |
is a posslblity, hut if the aasfssment
remains unchanged there will not be
much hope for the school.
