Kil F('ll in the Vassar In Forming New Newspaper Corp. The announcement was made the past week of a corporation of several western Oklahoma newspapers, involving a former publisher of the Perkins Journal. The Great American News Co. Inc., of which Bob Evans is vice president, general manager, and s(ockholder, purchased news- papers in Selling, Viol, and Lee- dey. Plans call for a commer- cial job printing plant and other newspapers to be added to the company in the near future. The other major stockholder of the corporation is Earnest Ho- berecht, who has been a vice- president of United Press In- ternational (UPI) and involved in other business enterprizes. Evans, who sold the Perkins Journal to Roland Sodowsky in 1959, has been publishing the Dew.ey County News in Selling since that time. He is remem- bered in Perkins as being an ac- tive civic worker and has helped to promote Selling to be one of the outstanding towns in western Oklahoma. One of the mai n objectives of the newly formed corporation is to give the communities a paper that will help promote theix area without the mechanical problems of most small town newspapers. These plans call for a centralized production plant in Selling, with all the newsapers having a home operated news staff. Mr. and Mrs. Jim Lacy are the paeents of Yvonne, Bob's wife. The Evans have two children, Joel and Lacy. JITNEY SUPPER SET The Elm Grove Cemetary As- sociation is having a jitney SUp- per on Saturday, April 29. All funds go Ior the upkeep of the Cemetery. Area V0cati0nal-Tech School Election To Be Held May 9 After many months of hard work by people interested in vocational-technical education in Payne County, a meeting Man, day evening with the Perkins Board of Education revealed that the State Board for Vocat- ional Education has approved an election to decide whether the local district wants to take ad- vantage of government /unds allotted for this cause.

Such schools are now succe- fully operating in the areas o Ardmore, Duncan, Oklahoma City, and Tulsa. held in the Perkins school lunch room Tuesday, May 9, from The election, which will be 2:00 to 6:00 p.m., will ask the fol- lowing: "Shall the territory compris- ing this school district be includ- ed in an Area School District that will provide vocational and- or technical education for secon- dary students, and adults, and-or other eligible students; said Area School District to be est- eblished, maintained and operat- eel as provided by Section 9B, Article 10, Oklahoma Constitu-- lion? This election is not asking for a mill levy, but is entitling the Perkins school district to be in-- eluded in the organization which will elect its own vocationa Board of Education from four zones within the approved dis-, trier. This board will then study the problems of a site, and estimate costs. After this phase is ac- complished, the board deducts all matching funds and is then able to determine a prolaosed tax levy. The estimated levy for ihe Vo-Tech. district is only to be about three mills. The facil- ities gained from the proposition lrom these three mills would never be obtained for any one of the area schools envolved, but 'by pooling resources it is possible. This proposed school wouldnot only teach our junior and senior grade studenLq highly echnicaI skills, such as electronics, appli- ance repair, food services, and others (subject to be decided by Vo-Tech Board). but will also be open for night school to ad- ults. All of these areas of educat- ion are needed in business, and our present universities are not geared to handle the big demand of vocational training that is needed to keep up.
