II UNION HICK SCHOOL TALK
Meetings Held Friday Night
WOULD AID DEVELOPMENT OF COUNTRY
Building Should Be Located At
T&hnage In Order To Be
Friday afternoon a meeting was
called at the assembly hall to
discuss the proposition of a Union
High School. It was expected
that Col. Hofer and C. L Starr
would be in attendance, but they
were unable to get over from
Salem in time. The meeting was
addressed by President Ressler,
J. H. Hawley and others. On
motion a committee of ten, con
sisting of Hawley, Ground, Haley,
Griffa, Heffly, Kurre, Springer,
Murdock, Powell and Fogle, was
appointed to attend the meeting
at Independence at night Pres.
Ressler attending as committee
man at large.
The meeting at Independence
was well attended and all present
seemed to be favorably impressed
with the idea of a Union High
School for the districts of Inde
pendence and Monmouth with
those contiguous thereto.
The meeting was presided over
by Hon. B. F. Jones and the "
speaking was preceeded by vocal
and instrumental music
Col. Hofer made the longest
talk and showed many reasons
why there should be a high school
in this community, that it would
enhance the value of all property
in the territory contiguous to the
school that it would be a great
help to the Normal; also that
many boys and girls that want a
business education could get it
at the high school who do not
want to educate themselves for
C. L. Starr, secretary of the
Board of Regents, talked awhile
showing many joints in favor of
joining the districts into one
high school district
County Superintendent Sey
mour said there were nearly two
million dollars worth of assessable
property in the five districts that
would likely be made into the
high school district and that the
necessary tax would be very
light If we join now and form
a nigh school distric when there
is a county high school voted, we
will not have to pay any tax into
the county high school fund, but
will be able to participate in the
distribution from the fact that
when a county high school is
voted it will be with the under
standing that no county building
is to be erected but the high
school pupils will be placed in
the differenthigh schools through
out the county. This being the
case we would get a fair propor
tion of them.
On motion of Mr. Hawley a
committee of ten from the two
districts was appointed to get to
gether and promulgate a course
of action looking to bringing the
matter before the next regular
school election. The following
have been named as the commit
tee. 'For Monmouth; J. H. Haw
ley, T. A. Riggs, Dr. Crowley,
G. T. Boothby and Ira Powell.
For Independence, C. L. Sperling,
P. M. Kirkland, W. A. Messner,
I W. W. Percival and J. L. Hanna.
