Of Three Rural Area Bus Routes
Tho Roseburg School Board Wed

of the administration in extending
bus routes in three locations at

Big Bend Road, at the request of
Ernest Webster and six other pe

children attending school. Web

Enrollment Grows
There are now 252 more students

time, and this number is greater
than the projected enrollment in

Defense Department Likes
Deferral Of Married Men
Defense Department is well
pleased with the results of Presi
dent Kennedy's recent order de
ferring married men from the
Preliminary studies indicate
that the order will save $10 mil
lion or more annually in military
personnel costs, in addition to
bringing the Army a more usable
type of recruit and possibly in
creasing re-enlistments.
For these reasons, reports that
the department has asked for re
vocation of the order brought a
quick denial from Pentagon offi
cials interested in military man
power trends.
In the last two years, the Army
has drafted approximately 40.000
married men who were entitled
to an allotment of $83 10 a month
not enjoyed by single drnftees,
who usually outnumber them
about 4 to 1.
$40 Million A Ytar
The additional personnel tab for
40.000 married men thus comes to
nearly $40 million a year. Bach
elors can get the allotment by
marrying while in service. The
allotment for a married man
would be increased to $105 a
month if his wife had a child.
Another possible saving is in
the slightly greater tendency of
single men to enlist after their
two-year draft terms. Although
the rale of such enlistments is
low between 5 and 10 per cent
each individual decision to stay
in service can save thousands of
dollars in training costs.
Single men also are preferred
lem when it is necessary, as it
usually is, to assign them over-,
junior-senior high schedule in the
morning about 10 minutes, making
the first pickup at 6:55 a.m. No
advance in Itme would be neces
sary for the elementary buses. Ad
ditional cost would be $774.40 per
Also approved was a route ex
tension on the Clark's Branch

was requested by Mrs. John
Stokes for her three children. At

The board decided to continue
to make an allowance in lieu of
transportation to Don Stumbo, who
had requested an extension of the
bus route from Winchester School
up Page Road, a distance of 1.7
miles. The allowance would be
$113.34, as compared with the bus
extension cost of $789.85. This ar
rangement was made for part of
last year.

preliminary plans for a new build
ing in the senior high school com
plex. Tentative plans call for a
three-story building to be located
in the present parking area south
ot tne old school building.
Just what the building can con
tain within money available under
the bond issue voted by the people
last March 6 has not been fully
determined. Briscoe stated space
requirements of the administration
recommendation do not fit the
room sizes originally planned for,
and some alterations will be neces
sary. Proposal Outllntd
Tho board is considering a build
ing which will have classrooms in
the upper two stories and a "com
mons" or multipurpose room on
the main floor, which would serve
as a cafetorium at noon. Plans as
drafted call for a first-floor annex,
as a separate unit from the main
building, to house a kitchen. But
whether or not the kitchen could be
built at this time will have to be
determined by funds available.
Briscoe said building costs have
materially risen this past year, and
dificultics have arisen in keeping
building plans within costs.
In regards to the Melrose School
addition, Briscoe reported difficul
ty has been encountered in ob
taining metal door frames, and this
is all that's holding up completion
of the structure. If the frames ar
rive this week or the first of next,
as promised, the building should be
finished in about 10 days from
their arrival, he said. This is hoped
for on or near Oct. 10. It may
also be necessary to use some sub
stitute hardware temporarily.
Now Teachers Hirad
The board approving hiring of
three new teachers: Mrs.- Estle
Batt, bookkeeping and world his
tory, and Mrs. Edna Wilson, home
economics and English, both for
tho high school, and Mrs. Nellie
risher, elementary.
Approval wos given for six non
resident pupils to attend Roseburg
The board gave its approval to a
request of Pacific Power & Light
Co. for an casement to replace the
one held by the company on the
Woody property purchased by tho
school district. Guy lines on the
original casement were in the way
of the new building and parking
lot and the company has consent
ed to lake this new casement and
shorten the guy lines, all of this
at the company's expense.
The board received no bids on
district property in the Cloverdalc
area offered for sale by the dis
trict. seas during the first two years. ;
Defense Department rules do
not permit government-supported :
transfer of families overseas dur-i
ing the first four years of en- '
listed service, but wives often
have followed husbands to Europe
at their own expense. In any case, '
the morale question with married
men overseas is considered more
Reduce Gold Outflow
And a II hough the item is small,
it is not being overlooked that
sending a higher percentage of
single men overseas will slightly
reduce the gold outflow from the
United States.
The department declined to es
timate how many hastened mar
riages may be caused by the ,
President's order, or lo guess
what the effect might be on the
country's birth rate.
There has been considerable
speculation, however, that the
order in effect since 1955 against
drafting fathers helped for sev- i
cral years to sustain a high birth
rate, and that the order against
drafting married men may for a
time have a similor effect.
The average draft age is now
23 years. By reducing the avail-1
able draft pool, the presidential
order might tend to cause the in
duction of younger men. but de
fense authorities said the effect

Road to Brozio Road, a distance of
two or three hundred yards. This
would involve hauling a nearly full
bus load of children the short dis
tance to Brozio Road and backing
the bus to make the turnaround.
The request had been made on
the basis that it would eliminate
danger to children who must walk
this short distance on the right

request was not deemed justified

Denied also was a request of ex
tension on Roberts Creek Road
from the present turnaround to the
John Lander residence, a idstance
of 1.4 miles. Request was by Virgil
Staffelbach, who has one student in
senior high and two in junior high.
The cost would be $216.83 per year.
The recommendation adopted was
denied on the basis students of this
age group are walking as far or
farther than this and because of
a very githt schedule timewise.
The other request denied was for
a bus from the Winchester Street
area to the senior high school, re
quested by Mrs. W. L. Heup. This
was denied on recommendation be
cause students within the city are
walking much greater distances
than this under no better conditions.

Hearing On Water Rates
Under Way At Oakland
The Oregon Water Corp. in the
first phase Wednesday of a public
hearing on a proposed water rate
increase for the city of Oakland
presented exhibits and testimony
to bear out its contention that the
cost of improvements to the Oak
land water rupply should be borne
by Oakland water users and not be,
in effect, subsidized by the Klam
ath Falls and Roseburg units of
the company.
The hearing, which is turning
out to be one of the most lengthy
of its kind here in recent years,
began at 10:30 a.m. at the Oak
land Legion Hall, ran through the
Itte afternoon hours and resumed
at 10 a.m. today. Robert Welch of
Salem, examiner for the Public
Utilities Commission, is conducting
the hearing. Completion is expect
ed at about 3 or 4 p.m. today.
Witnesses Pirodo
The parade of company witness
es Wednesday included W. H.
Smith, of Boise, Idaho, chief engi
neer for both Oregon Water Corp.
and its parent company, the Boise
Water Corp.; O. P. Newman, com
pany president, also of Boise; and
F. L. Ramey of Klamath Falls,
On the stand for the longest pe
riod was Newman. His testimony
and replies to cross examination
made clear the company's stand
that a rate increase was neces
sary to bring the Oakland opera
tions out of the red following a
capital investment of about $50,
000 in the past two years to bring
n, Oakland water supply to its
present high slandord. Muddy and
turbid water, particularly during
the rainy season, had long plagued
Oakland customers prior to the
1961 installation of a filter system,
Newman" pointed out. Newman
stated that the filtration plant is
a new type of recent design which
fits the individual need of the Oak
land water supply as previous de
signs in comi.ion use were hui
able to do. .
On hand also for the hearing
was Attorney Gerald Kabler rep

ter users who had in January pe
