Tuesday noon at the chamber
of commerce by Ivan N. McCol­
lum,
superintendent,
Neal
K.
Bu-h, attorney, and Ray D.
Fisher, chairman of the board.
The ci rectors are endeavoring
to reduce the interest rate from
6 oer cent on warrant* to 4 or
i *-» per cent on bonus, Mr. Fish­
er explained, and also to -tart
the district out again on a cash
basis. Application for a loan
from the RFC has been prepared,
he -taled. but before committing
itself either to a private loan
from the RFC the board wishes
.hrough *ale of the bonds to the
highest bidder or to a public loan
to get all the facts availaoie.
In either case a bond issue, auth­
orized by vote of the taxpayers,
would be necei-sary.
Mr. Rush explained the law-
under which warrants may be
refunded. Only taxpayers who
reside in the district, or resi­
dents of the district who own
stack in corporations or firms
paying taxes in the district, may
vote, he pointed out.
Mr.
McCoilom showed how
the payments on the bonds could
be met without straining the fin­
ancial resources of the district,
and told of the advantages to
the community that would ensue
if teachers could have cash that
would enable them to trade at
home instead of warrants that
often cannot be taken by local
business men.
