Superintendent Acuff replied that there was no room space available to spllt the class, nor was there another teacher available and there were no funds available for either. "We have dreamed of more space," Acuff said, '~but there is Just none available, here or on the Tryon campus." Acuff added that the school are using the old frame build- ing for a class. Chair~han of the Board, John- ny Payne said that the board was aware of the crowded problem and have tried and are still trying to relieve the prolem. "We have tried to float one bond issue, and are in the pro- cess of trying again," Payne responded to the group. Acuff said that he, Mr. Raf- ferty and Mr. Spillars would investigate having the library aid spend more time with the third grade class and would check on m~re government aid for the reduction in class size aspect.
