A motion to adjourn for two months
A trustee, in discussing the situation
with an Ait'its reporter, said it was
his opinion the board woull adjourn
probably tomorrow, for a month, un
less a decision was reached in the in
terim, and he did not think that was
possible, if present conditions con
tinue. He said members of the board
were now in such a position that to
airive at a decision would necessitate
breaches of faith with home constitu
encies. They had pledged themselves
to hold out for their respective towns,
he said, and until they are released by
their people, the location of the school
will not be selected.
Sooner or later," he went on to
sav. "some of the competing cities
must be brought to a realization of
the fact that they are n:t in the race
The trustees must go home and talk
the matter over with their people and
convince them why they will have to
change front either be in position to
demand support of one or more of the
trustees, or throw their vote to the
locality that will premise to do the
most good for them at a future time.
In this way, and only this way. can
we arrive at a decision as to a location
for the school."
