Roseburg Schools
Get Federal Funds
Roseburg School District No. 4
received a istal of $59,995 during
the 1962-63 school year from the
federal government in lieu of local
taxes . for those parents employed
on federal properties.
This aid to local schools is known
as Public Law 874 and is designed
to provide funds to help meet
school costs since the employer
(the federal government) is not
subject to local taxation.
Students coming under this pro
gram ' are those whose parents
work for the U. S. Veterans Hospi
tal, U. S. Forest Service, Depart
ment of the Interior, U. S. Army,
General Services Administration,
As part of the school registra
tion procedure, students whoso par
ents work under one of these pro
grams are required to have their
parents fill out a survey sheet that
provides the necessary information
to qualify for the annual audit of
these claims by the local school
district for these funds, the school
administration office explained.
"The cooperation of all parents
and employers involved is greatly
appreciated, since the funds receiv
ed from this program helps to re
duce the taxes necessary to meet
the cost of the local school pro
gram," R. R.' Brand, administra
tive assistant to Supt. of Schools
M. C, Deller, pointed out.

DALO Inc. Asks To Conduct
Airport Commercial Activity
The Roseburg City Council Mon
day night studied a request from
DALO, Inc., which is interested in
entering into commercial activity
at Roseburg Municipal Airport. The
group, which has operated as a
flying club at the local airport,
said it is interested in conduct
ing business pertaining to the sale
and service of aircraft, air charter
service, flight instruction and air
craft rental. ' -
The council referred the request
to the Roseburg Airport Commis
sion for study and recommenda
tion. Mayor Thomas C. Garrison
said the possible impact of having
two commercial operators at the
airport should be studied very care
The DALO request is presumed
to stem from a disagreement be
tween the club and the present
base operator. Base operator Rob

mat tne club is providing unfair
competition in the rental, of air
craft during training. A legal opin
ion by the city attorney recently in
dicated that the club's rental of
aircraft should be classified as
