ever graduated from the local
high school. Nolan Page gave
the Valedictory and Eleanor
Swanson the Salutatory. The con

All Bids Too High
At a meeting of the school board
held Tuesday afternoon, all bids
opened were rejected as too dern
high. The bids ran as follows:
$o9,992; $46,270; $46.4 10; $47,915;
$43,240; $56,547; $47,038. The
bids as submitted seemed to run
along a certain channel and no
doubt several would have had a
juicy slice of the profit had any
one captured the prize. Instead
of submitting the the plans to
several architects, our illustrious
board secured the services of but
one at a high price, who drew a
nice colored picture of a school
which was to cost $40,000. He
no doubt just guessed it. And
the board has been harpooned to
the quick. They now intend to
appeal again to the taxpayers for
more money at this particular
hard period of the year will
they get it? To the average little
citizen, it looks like the Portland
bidders were trying to run over
a game on this school district on
a plan similiar to the Portland
bridge scandal. The school board
would do well this time to seek
legal advise before they stub
