No. 49 HARRY FOOTE AND JAMES H. The News, Vol .8, No. 49 The President's Message BERT KENDALL OCKEY ELECTED TO SCHOOL BOARD PASSES AWAY PROGRAMS FOR Very Little Interest Taken By HOME EVENING Citizens, And Small (Vote Cast Mr. Ockey Wins By The second Thursday night of the Margin of Two Votes. .Jhe school election held in this city' Tuesday passed off very quietly there being very little interest taken by the citizens considering the importance and responsibility attached to the positions. In district number 2, Mr. Jamis H. Ockey, won out over Jas. Garrett Jr, the present member from that district and president of the Board The vote although of Education. small, was close, Mr. Ockey, receiving 66 votes and .Mr. Garrett 64. Mr. Garrett, who will retire from ojiiue ill dauuai j, uao u.,jn a. ber of the Board since, August, 1917. During this period he has served the taxpayer and schools well. For the greater part of this time he has been presiaeni or me coara, ana uuriug his incumbency $11,000 of Levan school bonds which were taken over when the district was consolidated have been paid off. It may be well to mention here that these bonds were not due until 1932. achievement during this period has been the erection of the high school which will stand out as a and monument to the, progrtess vision of the present membership of the Board. This building program was put over in a business like man. ,'ner and the cost kept within the revenue available from the bond Issue,' something that has not happened in many districts of the state in the expenditure of a like sum of money. Since the building was accepted in 1922, $16,000.00 of the bond issue has been paid off without very little increase in taxation, in fact, the levy was lowered this year half a mill. the Ey the practice or economy site on which the high school was built, together with the additional land purhased since that time has now all been paid for with the exception of $3,000. This has been accomplished without any increase in taxes whatever, the money having been saved out of the current revenues by a general scaling down of expenses in the cost of operation. The schools of the district have maintained during this period as high a degree of efficiency as will be found in any other school district of like size. Students who leave here to attend he various higher institutions of learning in the state have rated high in sholarsbip, and have students compared favorably with from much larger and richer districts than this. For the service he has rendered the citizens of East Juab County during his connection with the Board of Eduatfon, he is entitled to their best thanks and appreciation. In district number 4, Mr. Harry Foote. the present member of the Board from this district had no opposition, there being no other nominations made. Notwithstanding this fact, he received 103 votes, being for another term of 4 years commenrng In January, 1925. What has been said In relation to Mr. Garrett, will apply with equal force to Mr. Foote, who with the other members of the Hoard have labored to reduce expenses and at the same time maintain as high efficiency as possible that would conform with the limited revenues obtainable. Mr. James II. Ockey, the newly elected member Is a native of this city. He in a young man who Is hlfiflllV rr'Kttf.rlnri In fhn Pnmmlmllu and has a good education that will qualify him to pass upon many questions pertaining to the work which will confront him when he takes his position as a member of the Board.
