"O" SENIOR CITIZEN NEWS By Mildred Cash For those of you who want to see Mr. Kuyken- dull, representative for Beltone Hearing Aids, this is to let you know he will be at the center on June 19th from 9 A.M. until noon. The quilting ladies have a pretty quilt in the frames now for Verna Ar- thur. Her mother pieced the blocks thirty years ago. The pattern is a flower basket. We will have a pot luck dinner on Wednesday, June 13th. Clean up day is Thurs- day, June 14th, and the birthday dinner is Friday, June 15th. Ruby Dobson's sister in Blackwell had a biopsy last week and Betty Beeler also had the same surgery. We are happy to report both tests came back negative. Mrs. Winner Moser and Hazel Kirkpatrick are both in the hospital for surgery. We extend our best wishes and hope they will be back home soon. See you all at the potluck dinner Wednesday. -O- JUST A LINE MORE From Page 1 xxx Editing work continues on Cimarron Family Legends, Volume III. This book will be ready hopefully this fall or winter, maybe by Christmas. It seems like it takes forever to get all the material together, set the type, make up the pages, get them printed, and then bound into book form. It does happen eventually. XXX Western Publications, a new business in Perkins that publishes True West and Old West magazines, is going to have an open house at their building WASN'T TIME YET! PRAG UE--Prague's new city lake got ahead of itself with a 7-inch rain that backed water up a mile behind the new dam before the structure was ready. Workmen say it will take several days for the lake to empty so more dirt work can be com- pleted to finish up the dam. -o- BROTHERS SHARE GRADE HONORS BURBANK--Randy and Alvin Railings were Salutatorian and Valedic- torian of the Burbank graduating class. The brothers are sons of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Railings, and were presented trophies for their scholastic achievements. -O- CUSHING OPPOSING COUNTY SALES TAX CUSHING--The Cushing Retail Trade Committee and the Cushing Chamber of Commerce are two groups which have gone on record as opposed to any more taxes in the county. If it passes, the 1 cent county sales tax could raise $1.8 million, with 75 percent to go to the coun- ty road system. north of Perkins on Highway 177, on July 15. We want everyone to plan now to attend and see what goes on out there at the editorial offices and the warehouse where hun- dreds of thousands of back issues of the magazines are catalogued and shipped out all over the USA when ordered by researchers and western readers. Well also have a copy of the August issue of True West that has a several page feature spread on Perkins, Oklahoma, the home of Western Publications. You ll be interested in what the editor has to say about Perkins. This issue is being mailed out or sold to the news stands to some 120,000 readers throughout a 20 state area, so Perkins will receive considerable at- tention throughout the states west of the Mississippi River. xxx There is quite a group of new business buildings being established north of Perkins on Highway 177 over the past few years. Maybe these businesses will join with Western Publications on July 15, when they hold their open house, and also hold open house receptions so folks can see what's going on out there. Perkins TV & Ap- pliance has been out there for several years, then Henry Stafford built his building and moved his mower and saw business there. Lightfoots are put- ting in a garage building, and just up the road is the dog kennels owned by Debbie Wooden. Quite a business settlement out there.

A post construction survey is now being conducted to determine if a mistake was made on the measure- ment. City attorney Win- frey Houston said the first step is to determine if a mistake was made and who made it.

SPECIAL SCHOOL BOARD MEETING SET FOR JUNE 11 From Page 1 Restaurant Equipment Company of Oklahoma City for either a $2002 or $1870 oven, whichever most closely complied with the request for bids. A temporary soundproof wall between the Tryon kindergarten area and library area, now both in the same room, will be built by Tulsa Acoustical for $985. A request by Vibrasonics, Inc., of Bill- ings, Montana, to run a seismic test line across two hundred feet of school property was ap- proved. Vibrasonics will pay a fee of $25. Salary increases for support personnel were considered and tabled for discussion in executive session. The increase pro- posed by Superintendent Gill would be offset by reductions in staff that have already taken place. Thus the district could raise support staff salaries while actually decreasing the budget slightly. The losses incurred by fund-raising activities were discussed. Board President John Doyle ob- jscted to the principals spending administrative time on collections rather, than on education and suggested ways of reduc- ing the problem be explored. Board members voted unanimously to approve a one-year lease of school district land to the Town of Tryon. Legal adviser Chris Schlictza told the board they could not be held liable for activities on the leased property and that they would have the right to review the lease annually. A group of volunteers from Tryon plans to build a baseball field on the property. Finally, it was noted that the potentially con- troversial issue of renting school facilities to the Church of Christ came to an end when the local con-i gregation found other facilities.

But all seven employees who went home also claimed I eight hours work for the day. Since all other coun- ty employees were re- quired to work that after- noon despite the heat, and since Commissioner Ken- neth Nelson pointed out that it is the responsibili- ty of an elected official to keep her office open to serve the public, the board agreed to have Nese submit revised time sheets for the individuals who did not work that afternoon.
