(Continued from Tage 1.) grounds on the northwest, being the same parte t which has been rented a few years as a playground , Judge Schwenk stated how the article came to be. in the war rant, referring to the fact that the alumni association had started a fund for a tem porary, gymnasium and that.no site ap peared, to be available-. He said the idea of thV'eominiutee, 'also of the alumni com mittee, wi8 that if an article was in setted in the warrant for this, meeting it might save calling another meeting, but as no member of the alumni committee wa.'i present he could not say'-just how the matter stood. He said Mr. ,Stiekne.y had set a price of $3,500 on the property. It .was leased fr $130 a year before the war, but through the war, because of ab normal conditions, the rental was reduced to $5o a year. Judge J. M. Tjler asked if .the prop erty ootdd lie rented asain for $130 a year and Judsie Schwenk replied that he knew of. no reason why it could not, adding tliat he doubted the advis;ilu'lity of buy ing it for S.1.5IH) at .'his time. S. A. Da uels, whih.' no; speaking in fa vor of buying the property, thought it a nood time to emphasize the need of making pome provision for the . physical ' education of the'' boys and Rills and of, keeping the subject in mind. Chairman ! K. Q. S. Osgood of ibe school board t 'thought that, while all were in favor ofj a temporary jrymnasi'.un, under the eon-, dition it would be better to call another meeting if Ihought Vsi when all the facts were in hand. T. A. Austin saw no rea- ..'-... son why a temporary building could not be erected on land already owned by the, district. . . :., " .. .. -' On motion of Fred Cressy it was voted to dismiss the article, which was article 6, and article 7 went the same way, hav ing to do with appropriating mouey to pay for the Stickney lot. Under article 8, to raise money for the coming year's expenses. Chairman Osgood called, attention to the constantly increas ing expenses and said that Bellows Falls had voted this year 110 per cent, St. Johnshmy ,123 per. cent, Benni-.igton -"135 per cent and .Barre-. 133 per . cent. ; ? He moved that the district raise 100 per cent of the grand list. . wbjeb was voted with out dissent, payable at once. The last article,, for the transaction of other Inisiness' that legally might come up, wrought a motion from Judge Tyler that the salaries of the officers be the same as the past year. W. A. Shumway, who has heen tax collector several years, but who was not a candidate for re-elect ioa, j said it wouhl be a disgrace to ' ask the col lector to collect 70,000 for the present salary of $300. Mr. Cressy thought $300 hardly enough for the work involved and the size of a bond that would be required. L. 1). Taylor said the tax collector's f'efk had been in his office 33 years and he knew something of. the work required. He moved an amendment to Judge Tyler's- motion and named $.300 for the tax collector's" salary. The amendment was voted and the motion afl amended was then carried, but not until Judge Tyler had suggested that the salaries of Judge Schwenk and Dr. Miller of the school board be increased $23 and then -withdrew the suggestion after Judge Schwenk had stated that he personally could not accept the increase. 1 Mr. Taylor moved that the district con form to the town and village action in assessing an interest charge of one-half of one per cent a month on all taxes re- Tiinir(y minail affoi. lift 1 this mn- ............ & - -1 -' ".-vi . . . - - - lion was carried, there being but one dissenting voice.
