H#- School Board By George Adamn Congress has reduced the School Lunch fund budget again this year and in reviewing the balance available in the Illinois fund, it is necessary that the March lunch claims be paid on a percentage basis, with no funds left for April or May, UNLESS additional funds are made available. According to present figures it appears that the March Type A plate subsidy will he in the neighborhood of two or three cents. We regret this. Write your Congressmen, they can help correct this shortage. Special Milk Proggram At this time it appears that the Special Milk claims will tK> paid for the balance of this year at a 10 per cent reduction. This reduc¬ tion became effective with the F^ebruaIy claims due to action taken by the United States Bur¬ eau of Budgets." We will try to keep the peo¬ ple informed as to the price of milk in the 1966-67 school year. Please register all new kinder¬ garten or other students for the new school year at the High school office.
