A petition was in circulation last
week requesting the board of directors
to call a meeting in the near future
for the purpose of discussing consoli­
dation of the Detroit, Mill City and
Gates districts. The district seems
to be equally divided into three fac­
tions, those opposed to consolidation,
those who favor a unionization and
those who wish to retain the schools
as they are at present. Many of those
against consolidation would vote in
favor of a union high school.
