Marc Young, who lives on Stansbury, said at Monday's city council meeting that developer Harland Wells and residents of the area have reached an agreement con- cerning an area for a park and would like to begin developing the lot for that purpose. They were asking the city council what needed to be done, and ff they could start cleaning the lot. Mayor Dewayne Maser recommended the group work through the Park and Recreation Board. Bob Dick- Three vehicles involved son, Chairman of the board, was present and suggested it might be better if it was done locally as a neighbor- hood or community project as opposed to a federally funded project because of the time element involved in completing red tape and plans before funding. The group will meet with the Park Board at their next ineeting and bring plans of how they would like to develop the park. Young said the only place for the many young children in the area to play was in the street. The city fathers appointed Bill Sasser, G. T. Bickell and Bill Lott as purchasing agents for their specific departments. in Friday wreck here There were two other ambulance runs to Perkins during the afternoon Friday. An ambulance was called to the home of Mrs P. H. Jacks when a car fell on her grandson, James Price. Chief Lott said that Price was working under the front of the car when it sl!tped from a jack and fell on h.  Lott arrived at the scene, Price was in the house. Price told The Journal that the car pinned his arm, but he was able to work it free and make it to the house. The arm was in a cast for several days, but is better now. Shortly after Price was taken to the hospital, an ambulance was called when Mrs. Earl Decker fainted while in the post office. She was taken to the Cushing Hospital and Earl returned her to her home Monday morning in good condition. Paul A. Busch, Jr., 29, was taken by ambulance and treated at Stillwater Hospital Friday afternoon following a three vehicle accident at the corner of Kirk and Main Streets about 4:10 p.m. According to Police Chief Bill LoWs reports, a 1976 Ford driven by Busch as traveling north of Main when a 1966 Chevrolet driven by John Butch, 71, crossed Main traveling east across the path of the Busch vehicle. The impact knocked the Burch car into the Hender- son yard, and caused the Busch vehicle to strike a 1966 model car driven by James C. (Buck) Evans, who was sitting at the stop sign headed west. There was approximately $2000 to the Busch vehicle, $1000 to the Butch vehicle, and $200 to the Evans vehicle. [-Iarland Wells was pre- sent to leave a preliminary plan for the council's input that will eventually lead to development of the Lewis property, which is the area of land that is the north half of the property that lies between East Kirk Avenue and Highway 33, except for property owned by Ewing Canady, Frank Cundiff, The Free Methodist Camp Grounds, Mr. Cross and Jerry Sadler. The utility entrances and roads and streets were discussed. Final platting of the subdivision will be presented at a later date. The Council told Wells that the city has been notified they have been put on the schedule for matching funds for sewer improve- ment and are eligible for 75%, 25% matching funds. There is also an OZARKA 5% grant available, and it is thought extensive sewer disposal work will be undertaken in the future. Bob Dickson, president of the Lions Club was present to ask the city for $1000 to match the $1000 the Lions had put up to purchase Main Street Christmas decorations this year. The board explained that there were no unbudgeted funds available, but that a hearing will be held in October for public imput on how $2500 in Revenue Sharing Funds (Coninued on Page 9) this is National 4.1t Week.

In essence, Mr. Cecil Acuff summarized the stu- dents' attitude and behavior is more or less determined by his dress. Although, he complimented most students on their good taste in dress. The Student Council, in studying the problems in- volved with too many rules, felt it would be easier to enforce fewer rules. As a result, they asked that students who smoke be given a designated area behind the (Continued on Page 10) XXXX c Overholt was about r "lf0r an ambulance ride ,.eVeninm His job was ;lea over three hot, Id'trY ng sausage for ']e  Pancake supper.

The board agreed the hair length codes were no longer effective. However, they denied the students' request to replace the old code (4-C) which clearly defines prohibitive dress which reads as follows: "Clothing that displays any lettering, figures, illustra- tions, or anything that implies vulgarity, immorality and the use of alcohol and drugs is prohibited."

The Superintendent of Edu- cation stated the District had received $3%008 in State Aid which is a salary increase of 30 percent for teachers. Mr. Wyatt also announced the new enrollment to date was 809 which is down 4 from Sept. 2. The new fence project is completed, and painting at Tryon nears The board also decided to ask for sample chairs before making a final decision on this equipment. Proposed meeting dates have been filed with county clerk. Wyatt advised the board of one error for calendar year 1978. The meeting date given as Jan. 2, 1978 should have been Thurs. Jan. 5 due to the school holiday were also given, along with health certificates, pertain- ing to all animals. The highest price paid was $4000 for Jan Jack, a 6 year old Grumbein Jack. Very few animals sold for less than $750 to $1000. The lowest price paid was for a Jenny colt yearling and an 8 year old Jennet. A friend of Thomas E. Berry at the Black Mammoth Jack Sale said that this was a "royal group of animals, something that would never be seen again," This attitude seemed prevalent among both buyers and observers. Dad always said he and Jim Arrington would still have been in the Jack business if it hadn't been for World War II and the John Deere Tractor.
