ILL. 10 PAGES Sp>ecial Board Meeting Percy Swanson was appointed as street Maintancnce man for Hunt¬ ley Thursday night and this was due to the resignation of Morris Keifer. Mr Swanson will resign the first of the month from the Huntley Vil¬ lage Board to accept this pisition. Mr. Swanson's vacancy will be fill¬ ed by appointment to fill his unex¬ pired term which lasts until 1963. Facts & Figures 1. Effecti\e Monday. April 2, the school time schedule will bo altered slightlj- as follows: 8:45 a.m. take-up time (Five minutes earlier than before). 12:13 p.m. —high school classes will dismiss for their lunch period. I Still fi\e minutes earlier than pre- \iousi. 12:38 p.m. high school classes will t)egin for the afternoon. (Shortening the noon-hour by six minutes). 3:37 p.m. high School will dis¬ miss. (Eleven minutes earlier than precious). This has been studied quite thoro¬ ughly so that we know the high school students will ha\e sufficient time to cat (and to spare'; that it will work out for the cooks, and for other school personnel. Some of the reasons for making these changes ai-e: 1 It will mean much less con- musion and much better supcrvi- sio"n of the elementary children in¬ side school and on the playground. 2. It will relieve the congestion in the gymnasium at noon for both high and elementary students. 3. It will decrease the waiting peri¬ od between the last elementary feeding and the beginning of the high school feeding in the cafe¬ teria. 4. The five minutes earlier take-up in tho morning will not put any hardship on anyone because the buses are all in quite a while be¬ fore 8:45 a.m. 5. Farm students and track boys will have eleven minutes earlier start in the afternoons. (Note: Re- memlx>r we shall have not short¬ ened any of the actual study or academic times). This new sched¬ ule will go into effect Monday April 2 having been unanimously approved by the board last Thurs¬ day evening, March 22. II. At a recent County Adminis¬ trators' meeting (March 22), the following important items were announced and or discussed: 1. The Junior College survey Com¬ mittee for McHenry County was reported to have mot and is now in the process of carrying on ias look¬ ing into the possibilities of estab¬ lishing a Junior College in this County. Huntley has three lay representatives on this committee: Mrs. Carolyn Schachtner (elected to ser\e as acting secretary), Rich¬ ard Michelsen, and Mrs. Betty Plane. Note: Huntley is also con¬ sidering with districts in the Elgin area so that we can choose best when and if the two arc organized. 2. Mr Querhammer, chairman of McHenry County Civil Defense, s[x>kc about the organization of defense measures in our County, and suggested that each school district try a special receiver set which would be a direct and special line from the County Sheriff's Of¬ fice, but which would operate though tho telephone lines were knocked out. This would mean that the schools would bo notified first in the even of a bombing or a tornado. We are going to try one of the machines to ese how it w^rks in our area.
