Inasmuch aft there had been some
talk about changing the boundary line
between Odell and Tine Grove school
districts, I beg to herewith quote from
aectlon 26 of the Oregon school laws
enacted in 1K91, towit:
"The district boundary board may
establish new districts on the petition
of three legal voters of said proposed
new district, and may change or divide
the districts of Its county when peti
tioned to do so by a majority of the
legal voters of the districts concerned
in the change."
