Nos. 9 and 37 from the creation of
school district No, 12, which was
formed of land previously incorpor

taken under advisement by the board
and the decision will be announced
at a latter' date.

represented the residents of the new
school district and Ihfbrmed the
board that the new district

be given a suitable oportnnity for

district now has 10 children, who
attending school in a make-shift
schoolhousc on the Stephenson
Hoover ranch.
Henry Boyle and John Marn repre
sented the other two districts at
hearing and contended that the crea
tion of district No. 12 would result
hardships to the older districts from
which it was formed. District No.37
has at the present time but two pu
pils, according to the trustees, as
result of the division.
The controversy, according to
Norskag, who represented property
owners in district 9, results from two
ineffectual attempt« to centralize the
schoolhousc In district No. 87. The
schoofhoose in the older district is lo
