most efficient Instructors for
their children. ;
The committee's recommenda

teachers, was then segregated
from the regular report and vot

discrimination of sex, and for the
adoption of the original motion.

the attorney-general for a ruling
on the power of district boundary
boards. It became known here to

territory by Stayton high ' shool

the Marion: county boundary
board. ! '
Stayton maintains that a recent
ruling from the attorney general's
office gives the county boundary
board power to "regulate" ' bus
routes but not to change them
once they have been named. The
ten students now claimed by Stay

the past year.
