After the routine business of read¬ ing the minutes, treasurer's report a^ paying of the bills, the boara heard a r^ort from Mr. Ward Duel. Mr Duel was a representative of the McHenry County Health Depart¬ ment. He was at the meetmg to ask the board if they wanted to use the services of his department. One of the services of the depart¬ ment is investigating nuisances, such as public health nuisances re¬ ports, such as garbage in the back yard. The representative stated that when his department received a re¬ port, they referred it back first to the village to see if they wanted to handle it themselves. The repre- seintative said that the name of the complantive who called would be kept confidential. Mr. Duel stat¬ ed that his dpartment sent the village a report of any call the health department made in Huntley. The other thing which the health department does is food uispection Wt restaurants nnd taxgpi^, ^wth the conmnmity. The village is also ^ven cc^ies of the findings of the health inspection for the food and drink serving places.

The $5 per year, per establishment, as charged by the health department for this service. The representative stated, that most communiaties in the county have paid this charge themselves. He said however, that some com- mimities had prepared an ordinaiKe and charged a fee for services whidi the community had rendered. Services such as the clerk keeping the records of the in^>ection. Mr. Duel said that his department nuide at least two unannoimced complete inspections of a premise of a restaurant or tavern per year. People making the said inspection are required by law to be licensed by the state of Illinois as a register¬ ed sanitarian. In addition to the eating and drinking establishments, the health department also investi¬ gate grocery store. Uiis takes the place of a state inspection. Tlie county health department is paid by the state erf Illinois to take over these duties. However, before they can come into a commiuiity, they must first have the permission of the community to do so. This is what the representative was re¬ questing at the meeting last Thurs¬ day. Sdiools are also in;g)ected, how¬ ever there is no pharge, being that they are another government agen¬ cy. Upon request, the department will inspect churches. This however, is called a consultation because the department is being called to ren¬ der a service. There is also no charge for the chm-ches. Ifthe health department find muJ- tipie violatiims in a restaurant, which must be corrected, they may sdiedule a recheck of the establish- met. llils usually takes place Avith- in ten days. However, if tbe viola- tl<m Is more serious, they could come back the very next day. Upon recheck, the violation is either cor¬ rected or ita't. If it is not correct¬ ed, tite health department wants to Conflmed on Pa(e Three Referendum Vote This Saturday March 15th Voting for the referendum will be from noon to 7 o'clock p.m. on March 15, at the VUlage Hall. The Saturday's vote will be a 40 cents increase in the Educational fund. Most of the direct costs of running a school are charged to the Educational fund. The past year saw a deficit in that fund. The present year deficit will be approxunately $40,000.00. Superintendent Marks poinU out that this years deficit is equal to the salaries of six or seven teachers. Any effort to balance a budget re¬ quires reduction in expenditures equal to the combined salaries of that number of teachers. At this time, it is very difficult to project possible costs in expenditures for next year. If all athletics were di- minated next year, a reduction of $9,380.CO could be effected. The total elimination of music would further reduce expenditures by $24,- 8CO.00.

The most surprised member of the Himtley Post that evening v/is Don nstrom, the Adjutant, who, for his many years of diligent, loyal and often unseen work for the American Legion was fwesented a Life Mem¬ bership. No one better deserves it! The American Legion could not have been as successful an organ¬ ization as it is were it not for the ctwperation and help ot other peo¬ ple. Therefore, a 50th Anniversary Medallion was espedally designed to be given to worthy peoirie in thanks for their assistaIM^e. The Huntley Post thus e:g>resaed its thanks for cooperation to ihe fol¬ lowing: Mayor Wilpault Brill and the Village Board — whofie members are: Leonard A(±man, Leon Olhaber, Dick Enstnmi (Clerk), Dick Staab and Ek-nest Fitzi.

Day was unable to attend but his letter of thanks was read by Commander Schultz. The editor (rf the Huntley Farm- side, Quin O'Brien, who has nevei- failed to print any news or pictures to keep the community informed of our activities was also thanked wiUi a medallion.

He gave a brief resume of the formation of Vm Legion, its aims and purposes, and a hist(Ky of its past activities. He then went on to stress the need for more patriotic emphasis — for suKwrt to those wiio wish to re¬ store law and order to our daUy lives — for action against those who wish to destroy ow country from within — to make the word "square" meaningful again and not an insult! TTiese things we must do. Mr. J(An Mould, 2nd Divisicn Com¬ mander, then read Red Skelton's "Pledge of Allegiance", a moving work of art. In receiving his 50 year pin, our own Pat Williams waa a hit with his humor. He wondered tew come he was seated fad&g the Reverend and the undertaker since he isn't ready to go yet!

Spaghetti Dinner Thi newly re-activated squadron of the Sons of tfae American Legicm, Huntley, Illinois 673, is having a heme cooked spaghetti dinner on Friday, March 21 at the Post Home. Service will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Since this squadron is off to a new start, the boys are anxious to raise money for their treasury so that they can support their own programs with their own money. So, come and cnjcy a good meal and thereby help the boys. Oh, yes — this is a casual buffet and the men need not dress up. Faculty Urges YES Vote The membership of the Huntley Educational Association has voted to endorse the passage of the school referendum to be beld March 15. Mr. Kem, President qt WUi^ ttated-tharttnr BcKbol faculty is very aware of the harm tbat inadequate cK^ool financing eaaid cause. Main¬ taining the accomplisfaings already adiieved by the scdioo! comnuadty and instituting needed improve¬ ments requires financing. When the students graduate from school they must compete in life with students from otbo' schools. U the Huntley students are to have an even diance, their scfaool needs to be good as most other schools. To maintain our good school, ukrv courses and services are needed. We need to maintain moderate dass- room size and budgets to purdiase materials for tlioGe dasses. The HEA knows how important h is to the students of our (sxnmunity that the referendum passes. It is hoped tfaat parents will take time to think about how important ade¬ quate school fbiandng is to miaiii- taining a good school for tfaeir cfaU¬ dren. Pau-ents are urged to insuM good schools by supporting'tiie pas¬ sage of the refere»iium in all ways possible, but most importantiy by voting on Saturday. Vote for tfae future of your cliil¬ dren. Vote YES. Health Series Still Open Emtdfanent for the YJiLCA. Health Sex Series is stiU being taken. The series wasj piwinad fer thirty families.
