Corvallisites did Nearly Five to , One
in Favor of the Flan.
- Corvallisites voted Monday for
ample accommodations for the
school children of the town. They
voted for the purchase of the Diller
block, east across the street from
the public school buildinsr, for, the
purchase of which the school board
holds an option at the price ' of
$3,000. They also voted for an
issue of $8, 000 in school bonds, a
portion of which is "to be used in
the erection of a new building on
the Diller block.
The vote was very light, but was
nearly five to one in favor pt the
bond issue.' . For bonds, 42 votes
were cast, and against bonds, nine.
Of the nine negative votes, a large
portion were cast by women. It
was tjietalk among the judges and
clerks at the polling place that but
one or two of the gentler voters
were favorable to the new building
One of the clerks remarked that he
had always thought that it was the
fair sex that was favorable to school
houses and education pf the chil
dren, but after Monday's election,
he had some reason to believe, the
sterner sex to be the more liberal
in such matters. In all, eight
ladies voted at Monday's ' election.
The school board has, as yet, no
definite plans for immediate action.
All of the details have been left to
take care of themselves, pending
the result of election. Within a
day or two, however, it is expect
ed that business will begin. With
in that time a meeting of the board
will be held, for the purpose of
The members of the board , hope
to have a new building ready by
the time school opens, but there, is
some doubt if that will be possible.
Some time will be required in con
summating the sale of the bonds.
Complete regulations for the sale
are prescribed by . the school law.
The bonds have first to be offered
to the state oin the basis of five per
cent interest The board has had
assurance - that the bonds can be
floated on a basis of four , per cent,
and hopes that the state board will
waive the state s claim to purchase.
They hold the state should not re
quire the district to take state
school money at five per cent when
private money can be had at four
per cent. ".. . .-. -,. ; .
Various plans for a school - buil
ding have been offered the board,
but none have been examined or
considered. .-. It is the purpose ( to
build but moderately so arranging
the structure that hereafter addi
tions can be added and become a
part of the original plan of the
building. The board' expects to
ask the city to vacate that portion
of Seventh street lying between the
Diller block and the public school
building, and to make it a part of
the public school grounds,
