The million dollar training school will provide training in many vocational areas, such as electronics, appliance repair, auto mechanics, food planning and many others. The only way a facility of this kind can be obtained is by join- ing with other sehool districts in the program. Perkins wilt join with a district which inclu- des Payne, Pawnee, Creek and Lincoln counties. If the Perkins dislriet decides lo join the district, there will be a board member from this area to work with others to make plans and present the estimated cos afar federal funlts have beo dected. : - The estimated levy which would have to be voted on at a later date is 2.87 mills.

School Board Meets Census Shows Large First Grade In '67 The Perkins school board met Monday evening in the super- intendent's office for their reg- ular monthly meeting. Usual monthly claims were discussed and signed. A purchase of four new type- writers with trade-ins was ap- proved for the commercial depa- rtment. Diseussion followed on the needed improvements of the sch- ool plant. It was pointed out that the school census shows that the enrollment for the first grade next year will be around 38, which will neeessitate having two first grade sections. This will bring to a total of' three classes, first, seeond and sixth, which will need two ro- Pictured above is the new town board seated in the town meet- ing roqm Monday evening attetelgz!":Ctt .

Erwin. one of the newly elected Perkins Town Board members, was elected. as mayor by the newly formed board Monday night. Other new members of the board are Leo Jacks, W.D. "Bill" Sassar and Hubert Gawf. Before the new board was sworn in, the outgoing board, Otto Wood (nmyor), Joe Barta, Phil Hughes and Roscoe Emer- son, okayed the April claims and discussed some unfinished bus- iness. Mayor Otto Wood expressed his appreciation to all of the town employees and others who had helped in any way during his term in office. Wood ref- erred to a public letter he wrote several weeks ago which stated: 'I can truthfully say that some of the finest people in the world are right here in Perkins." "In the last four years I have honestly tried to do the things which I believe would benifit the town as a whole." "It is my hope that the people will put aside their prejudices and unite behind the new coun- cil. Give them your all out support in whatever new pro- gram they propose, and above all give them your confidence." After the new board completed their organizational proceedures, they re-hired and re-affirmed ores and two teachers.

This means that the Perkins school is continuing to grow, which will require another buil- ding program for the grade level. Such expansion must be started in the near future to eliminate vnymore temporary facilities. their faith in all present town employees. Questions were asked by the new board of the opinion of the former board on the sewer and water problems. It was re- vealed that there is a chance of the town losing $22,000 if a sewer bond issue is not passed in the near future. It was also stated that to ob- lain this federal grant, the pro- posal will have to be presented very much the same as the one that Perkins voted down everal months ago. The problem of finding a good water supply was discussed. Mayor Wood pointed out that this issue has plagued every Perkins town board for several years. He advised the new board not to be discouraged or worry' if they drilled a bad well, because most all the recent boards have had to "prospect" for water and haven't all been successful. A discussion of a town live- stock ordinance revealed that a problem of horses being kept in the city limits on the east side of town was bringing enou- gh complaints that action wa going to have to come from the state health department if a new ordinance was not passed and enforced. The meeting was adjourned after a motion to have a spec- ial meeting with the town attor- ney later in the week to worl on pressing problems.
