Tuesday, December 13, 1910 nn iin nw i-; - .-v,.. .. SOIL mmvs - vft 1 Amount Allowed for School Maintenance Lacks $31,- 000 of Being Enough. Like Banquo's ghost, the financial clouds that hay,e enveloped the school board in a series of hazes in months past, made the first visit for the 1910 11 season at the meeting- of the board at the ilesa school Monday night. As a result a strong effort is to be made to arrange a joint meeting of' the school board and cits council, and a stronger effort is to be made by the school Doard to secure an appropria tion considerably in .excess of $135,000. as allowed by mayor Kelly's budget. Briefly explained, it is like this: The estimated cost of operating ex penses for 1910-11 is a little matter of $212,000. The appropriation allowed by the city is $135,000. Revenue to be derived from state taxes is estimated at $46,00, rather than $51,000, as It was at first thought would be received. This gives the school board $181,006 to meet estimated expenses of $212,000. Holds School Overdrafts. Incidentally, another bugaboo to be ing a school director, is the fact that the Rio Grande "Valley Bank and Trust holds school overdrafts on I CTCIr. 7; ------ - which the interest for the past three -... t-ic-e -.o.t, months amounts to 5166. A. statement . xi i i j to. for that amount was read at the meet- Ing Monday night, but no action was, taken. ' An effort will be made to arrange the meeting with the city council be fore the council session Thursday, as school board directors state It is abso lutely imperative that more funds be allowed for the schools. As the tax levy lias been announced at S1.90 and part of the tax receipts printed, it is not probable that the levy will be in creased, but It Is said an effort will be made to secure a reduction of other funds or to draw on the additionalj taxes that will be collected, as a result of the Increased valuation of the city. SHperiHteHdent'a Report. The meeting opened with the reading of the report of IT. K. Crozier, superin tendent, which recites that the attend ance during November shows a de crease of 176, compared with 1909.

Actors are much like ball players; they are farmed out for a season or a part of it and then brought in when they are needed. Such was the fate of Earle Mitchell, of El Paso, who has signed up with the Shuberts. Early in this season he was loaned to the Plaza Music Hall company of New York and last week he was recalled and opened in the new Shubert-Brady pro duction, "Baby Mine," replacing Otis Harlan, who was cast for the principal role in "The Balkan Princess."
