Devoted to Advertising the Best Valley on Earth NUMBER 24 SCHOOL BOND VOTE FRIDAY, SEPI. 6 On Friday, September 6th, the \oters of the Coolidge Union high school district will have the opportunity to vote on the issuance of $58,- 000 in bonds on this district for the purpose of building and equipping a high school building for this high school district and paving for the site on which the building is to be located. The bond is sue of $58,000 represents on ly 45 per cent of the fund to be available for the estab lishment of the high school as the 55 per cent will be supplied from the P. W. A. funds, which will be avail able when the bonds are vot ed. The Coolidge Union high school is now an institution by virtue of a vote of this district for that purpose. Ar rangements have been made for quarters to carry on the wori until the hign school building is completed. As soon as authority is given through the bond election, arrangements will get under way at once to begin the construction of the high school building which should be ready about the firs* of the year. Naturally, a high school for Coolidge is im perative with her fast grow ing population, and while we may avail ourselves of the PWA fund, now is the op portune time- for should we wait until the PWA funds are withdrawn, the district would experience difficulty in putting over this building program. It is to the inter est of every legal voter to be at the polls on September 6th and have a part in putt ing over the bonds that con struction work on the school building may begin without further delay. o R.
