T. A. meeting the board adjourned to their meet¬ ing room. Mr. Glen Delany, principal of the grade school, explained to the board that the Elgin Junior Ol- lege would not accept students without i>oard approval- Supt. Kelly informed the bosrd that he had contacted a graduate student at Beloit College who wonld receive his Master's degree on January 27. The teacher is Mr. Tim Thorssen, who would teach math at the local school and could start on January 30.. He will be married in June of this year. Mr. Kelly stated that this was the only math anolication he had received so far. He went on to say that he had two apolicants for biology, one hadi already taken another job, the other could teach another course. He said that Mr. Thorssen had taught at Delavan, Wisconsin, and that if he were to come here, his salary would be V4 of $6660.00 He said Mr. Thorssen is interested in teaching is a smaU school system rather than a larger one. The board instructed Mr. Kelly to offer him a contract for tiie balance of the school year. The Board next disciMiod the bus insnranbe nolielep.'jb^Boelrge Adams said that if there were a bus accident the $2,000.00 medical insurance i>er student would be a bit low. Adams is checking policies and will find out what the average is in other schools. The present insurance policies expire on Feb. 23, Mr. Ken Reed is the agent. The Board tabled the discussion of teaeher's salaries until after the school tax election. On Monday, January 23, the board will meet to canvass the votes at 7:80 p.m. at the school. The board approved $16.00 to be paid each lady working at the polls at the Saturday election. Mr. Delaney reported that a maximum of $8,0(K) would l>e avail- al^ from the State of Illinois for summer Khool classes- This is an estimate dspending-nptm tbe nnmf ber of schools psutieipating. The State of UUnais told tbe tdmiBia^ tration that H caiiU.j<cBie<. as llttio as fnSBk.'tariL A padUMgi ^ would not go below S6M0. Mrs Martindale has volunteered to teach this summer. It was reported that the school has two Spanish speaking children one a girl in let grade, tbe other a 14-year old boy who c«n only speak English at third grade level. The students have been spending one hour a dsy teaching him English. The boy had come to this area with no winter clothing. A discussion was held by the board of the possibility of moving 4 rooms into the new building at the present time. They diseuseed moving the kindergarten and two first grade classes from the Con¬ gregational and Lutheran churches to the new school. This, however, was not done as the facilities at the new school are not adaptable to children that site. The kindergarten equipment being used is owned by the Ck>ngrega- tional church and when the classes are moved, new equipment will have to be purchased. They then discussed the possi¬ bility of moving some of the older classes to the new building. This idea, however, was discarded be¬ cause In the early 1950's when the first building was erected, the floors were practically ruined by gravel tracked into the building by students before sidewalks and grass were established outside. The board also learned that the street which is to run in front of the school cannot be constructed at this time as condemnation pro¬ ceedings have not been started by the village against the owners of the land- It was also pointed out that in April and May the floors of the new building could be a sea of mud if the building is opened to students at this time. Mr. Delany reported that there would only be 61^ students in the 4th grade next that and snggaated that perhaps only two 4th grade teachers would be required rather than 3. This would give each Uh grade teacher a V'tal of 35 stn- Continued on Page iwo 202^93 Pictared above is Vera Rasmussen and Lucille Ko^ of the.American Legion Auxiliary presenting Flag rolls to Bob Tirk Director of the Hnntley School Bands. dents.

Township Boatd Meeting A short meeting was held by the Grafton Township Board of Audi¬ tors last Thursday night, January 12. The minutes of the previous meeting were read asd approved and bills approved for payment. The meeting was then adjourned as a large group of citizens from the tri-subdivision area was pres¬ ent to question the Board on what the Board of Local Improvements had been billed by Kuria Mathew who had been rttained by the Board of Local Improvements to investigate and make a prelimi- spry survey in the Crystal Vista and Westmore Gardens areas. Mr. Herb Eggers stated that the Board of Local Improvements had not held a meeting, as they were enjoined by the court from doing so, and therefore, he could not give out any information regarding that board, as it might be con¬ strued as a meeting of the Board of Local Improvements. ' Mr. Kurian Matkew was pres¬ ent at the meeting and; said he was tiiere to advise the btiard if thej' were to have a meeting. He said that he could not give out Infor¬ mation regarding that board'as it was not his place to do so. Mr. Mathew was questioned by a member of the press, a woman reporter who asked what a similar job would cost, to which he re¬ plied there were no two jobs ex¬ actly alike. Mr. Mathew said that some jobs cost $6,000, others $9,000 some $16,000 that he had never had any'two with the exact same mileage. As the board was unable to answer questions that might be construed as a meeting of the Board of Local Improve* ments, the citizens left.
