The The Only Newspeper in the State That Can Benefit Perkins end Community m 50 Copy Perkins, Payne County. Okla. Thur=day, June 14, 1962 Eight Pages Volume~ 72 No. 39 The Perkins schools building addition will include four class- rooms, as originally planned, it was decided in action taken Mon- day night by the Perkins board of education. The board voted to use approx- imately $16,000 of general fund surplus, and $12,400 from the school building fund, in addition to the original $145,000 bond issue, in order to build to the extent planned when the bond issue was voted last December. Construction bids for the pro- ject, which included a gymnasium- auditorium with luncheon facilit- ies and four new classrooms, had soared far above the $145,000 bond issue amount, with the low- est bid approximately $20,000 above at $164,409.00. The board had voted May 21 to eliminate two classrooms from the plans and make other changes in an attempt to bring the co~ down to within the bond issue amount. The board voted to accept the bid of the low bidder on. the pro- ject, Carter Construction com- pany of Tulsa, with two relatively minor changes which bring the construction cost of the project down to' $162,662.00. Only changes from architect's ,p~ans submitted to bidders arc deletion of basketball baekboard supports and deletion of vinyl and asphalt tile throughout the build- ing, a savings of $2,132. The board voted to add downspouts on the buildings and a sidewalk on the west side of the planned class- rooms at a cost of $345. Total cost of the erttire project, including architect's fees of about $9,757 and bonding company cost of $1150, will be approxin~ately $173,500. Joe Hastir~gs, chairman of the board, .said that virtually no red tape would be involved in trans- ferring money from the general fund to the building project fund. The board held a lengthy but amiable discussion on the advis- ability of u~ng money from the general fund to complete the en- tire project, with the biggest ob- jection being the fear of running the general fund too low, and obtaining the classrooms at the risk of disregarding other school I]C( d.;. Hastings pointed out that "lhis is a capital improvement for the school system] which will last for many years. We will save a num- ber c~f thousands of dollars by adding the classrooms now, r~ther than waiting urttil later. We may have to rough it a libtle, but it will be worth it. I think we need bhe classrooms now." Sill McGinty, cashier of th~ Glencoe State bank, inspect= damage caused by burglars who entered the bank last ~veek, but failed to get any money. Little League Donors Are Funds to operate Perkins' two little league baseball teams are nearly over the top, according to Melvin Sager and Frank Ever, s, who are in. charge of the collect- ion. - "We have collected enough to cover the two teems' expenses," Evans said, "a few more crofters and we'll break even."

Attend Assembly Paula Evans and Donna Wall were delegates to the ninth annual Methodist Youth Assembly which was held for four days on the Ok- lahoma City university campus June 5 through June 8. A book conslsting of suggesteff rules for sucessfully conducting the local sub-district and district MYF was made up during btmrness and work sessions. Speakers at the assembly was Irving Smith who spoke on the theme "The Greatest Is Love." Dick Royal of Cushing was elect- ed new youth president of the Ok- lahoma conference. Library News took In around 12,000 bushels Tuesday, wi~.h 15,000 anticipated Wednesday. Moisture content on the wheat Tuesday ran high, but mill work- ers were huping the hot weather v~ould dry it out Wednesday. Bushel.per-acre averages were considcre,~y ~elow last year's for mast fro'mere Ahrberg said that averages as low as 12 bushels on large acreages were being re- ported, with the high around 40 bushels. Wheat was testlng around 58 pounds, which Ahrberg described as "not so ~d, but better than we expected." "Most farmers are happier now than they were before harvest," Ahrberg said, "At least, they're getting some wheat, when it look- ed like they wouldn't get any for a while." "The yield actual'ly is about nor- mal, less a little quality," Ahrberg said, "but many farmers expect- ed rn~re because they fet, tilized fields heavily." Barley yields are running about half of last year's crop, with We harvest nearly completed. Quali.ty is very ~poor, Ahvberg said. While heavy rains were making life miserable for farmers trying to harvest wheat, it was welcome on another front. Alfalfa fields are making a good ~.,~eoa~. ter being h~t hard by dry weather, and the hay outlook is consider. ably brighter.
