Mq Board A meeting of importance to the whole State of Utah and particularly particu-larly to smaller rural counties is being held Friday, Oct. 28 by the State Board of Education in Salt Lake City to consider consolidation of schools within districts, both elementary el-ementary and secondary. Walter D. Talbot, Deputy Supt. of Administration, has made recommendations rec-ommendations which will be considered con-sidered and acted on at the meeting. meet-ing. Following are some of the recommendations rec-ommendations made by Mr. Talbot: Tal-bot: a. All elementary schools shall maintain a minimum enrollment of 25 students per grade where there are such concentrations of persons, or where reasonable transportation trans-portation practices make this possible. pos-sible. b. All secondary schools shall maintain a minimum enrollment of 75 students per grade where there are such concentrations or persons where reaesonable transportation practices make this possible. c. After a period of two years be ginning July 1, 1966, no school with less than these minimum enroll ments shall receive special school approval unless that school shall be determined to be a "necessary existent" small school. Such a school shall be determined "nec essary existent" only if the distance dist-ance to an existing school requires longer than 45 minutes on the bus one way for elementary students, and longer than one hour and 15 minutes on the bus one way for secondary students. Exceptions to this rule shall be permitted only when it has been demonstrated that school district officials and the THE PEOPLE OF DELTA AND THE GREAT PAHVANT Thursday, October 27, 1966 - JIM BOBSON, 16-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl "Curly" Rob-son Rob-son of Delta proudly displays the eight-point buck that he killed on opening day of the deer season. This was Jim's first year to hunt and he bagged the big buck with one shot through the YISTA Members Visit Delta Area Six young adults who are Volunteers Volun-teers In Service to America (VISTA) (VIS-TA) were in the Chronicle office last Thursday, learning in a short visit what the Chronicle staff has spent years learning, how to put a weekly newspaper to bed each week. The six were accompanied to the Chronicle by Wallace Jeffery, Mrs. Peggy Crane, both Delta and Mr. Hugh Wood, Holden, who serve as Supervisor and Ass't Supervisors of Millard County in the Resource Development Ass'n. The group was interesting to talk with and were interested in the workings of the backshop along with the Beckwith Family collection collec-tion in the front office. They are all trainees of the VISTA program at the University of Utah and came from all sections of the United States. One of the young men in the group, Peter A. (Pete) Lipovac of Des Moines, Iowa is a graduate of Drake University with a BA in biology. bi-ology. He has attended the Drake University Law School for one year and plans to return after his year with VISTA to finish his law de n people in the district through faith - ful and persistent effort have been unable to meet this time schedule. Using this exception, approval for one year does not in any way bind the Board to give approval the second sec-ond year. 2. That the State Board of Education Edu-cation give incentive units for a period of three years to districts which consolidate small schools so that districts do not suffer a loss of special school units for those schools which are consolidated. 3. That the State Board of Education Educa-tion recommend to the Utah State Legislature that Section 53-721 (3) U.C.A., 1953, be changed to allow the State Board to award distribution distribu-tion units to special schools and schools receiving incentive units described in 2 above on a basis other than one unit for each teacher teach-er or teaching principal. The law should allow the money derived from a distribution unit so awarded award-ed to be used to purchase the services ser-vices of teachers, other professional profession-al personnel, aides, books, materials, mater-ials, and instructional equipment; and that Section 53-7-21 (7) U.C.A., 1953, be changed to be made applicable ap-plicable only to such schools mentioned men-tioned in this paragraph to the effect ef-fect that the ratio designated there in need not apply to these schools. 4. That the State Board of Education, Educa-tion, through and with the change in Section 53-7-21 (3) and (7) U. C.A, 1953, promulgate guidelines for awarding distribution units for 'necessarily existent' small schools, which provide that the money derived de-rived from these units may be used to employ teachers, other profes sional personnel, aides, books, ma' terials, and instructional equip- Delta, Utah 84624 10c copy aUlKiiuu mmmmi r i neck.

Bob brought a three-pointer three-pointer home. Snooks cooked and Evan did the dishes. gree. Pete was employed as a legal aide by the Iowa Attorney General. One of the young ladies in the group, Norma Jean Andrea of Cres-co, Cres-co, Iowa is a graduate of Crestwood High School and St. Mary's School of Practical Nursing. During the past year she has worked as a Licensed Practical Nurse on the rehabilitation floor at St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota, where most of the patients are para lyzed. She is an amateur ham radio operator and had her own station in Iowa. Mr. Jeffery had quite a varied tour lined up for the young people while in Delta. Included was a visit to Brooklawn Creamery, a visit to Delta High School where they met with the Student Council and had lunch, DMAD Reservoir, Gunnison Bend Reservoir beach, Sherwood Shores and the Ashby Feed Yards in Sutherland. The VISTA members were John Seltzer, Croton, New York; Mr. Lipovac Lip-ovac and Miss Andrea; Miss Fonda Bowman, Garden Groove, Calif.; June Erlich, New York City; Susan Kilham Sante Fe, New Mexico. All were expecting to receive their assignments as-signments this week. . imtiiim to . ment. The express purpose should in these schools, with the under standing that such materials, books equipment, or personnel may not be utilized elsewhere in the school district. 5. That the State Board of Education Edu-cation adopt as a policy the awarding award-ing of distribution units for special programs on a multiple district basis in those areas where the concentration con-centration of students is insufficient insuffici-ent to justify special programs. Such distribution units are to be allocated on a pro-rata basis a-mong a-mong several districts, or to one district with the express understanding under-standing of how the units are to be used. That the State Board of Education Educa-tion encourage local school districts dist-ricts to undertake studies and to develop master plans of their respective re-spective districts, for the purpose of determining the feasibility of consolidation of attendance units to the extent practicable and desirable. de-sirable. Talmage Taylor, Supt. of Millard Schools, has recently attended two meetings, in Richfield and Cedar City, where organized moves are underway to block the adoption of the recommendations. Millard School District began a consolidation program last year whereby the elementary schools of the county are consolidated at Delta Del-ta and Fillmore, with the exception excep-tion of the Oak City, Hinckley, Gar rison and Kanosh schools. These schools face consolidation in fu ture years if the enrollment figures continue to decrease.

Hopkins, son of Mr. Morris Hopkins of Delta, RFD, recently figured in the news in Vietnam. The newspaper clipping datelined Ky Ha, Vietnam reads "A helicop ter and crew from Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron (HMM)-364 fulfilled the dreams of an eager young Vietnamese recently, carry ing him to an Army of the Republic Repub-lic of Vietnam (ARVN) outpost south of Da Nang so he could en list. "Cpl. Richard A. Hopkins, crew chief of the helicopter, was hesitant hesi-tant taking a civilian passenger until he read a note the young Vietnamese handed him. The note explained where he wanted to go and of his plans to join the army. "Once I read the note, said Hop kins, "I was more than glad to give him a life. I would have filled the plane with Vietnamese on their way to join the army, if possible." "On the way to the ARVN out post, Hopkins learned that the young man was on the final leg of a long trip. He had received per mission and encouragement from his head schoolmaster and had then travelled to his parents' vil lage to get their permission before going to the outpost to enlist." Cpl. Hopkins enlisted in the U.S Marines May 5, 1965. He has been in Vietnam for a year and three months. APPOINTMENT MADE William B. Mace of Fillmore was appointed Millard County Bee Inspector In-spector at the October 19, 1966 meeting of the Millard County Commission. Meetf . . . Millard High will be consolidated at Delta if Mr. Talbot's recommendations recommen-dations are adopted, school board members of Millard point out the amount of money spent at Millard High since the consolidation program pro-gram was begun. "If we had been entertaining any idea of consolidating Millard High at Delta, the money would never have been spent," Board member Delma Galli says. "Fur thermore, we won't be considering further consolidation in the district until that time when the enroll ment figure is drastically reduced and the majority of the county res idents want it. We hope that time never comes because we know that Millard County needs two high schools because of its size," Mrs. Galli concluded. The Salina Chamber of Com merce is urging individuals to at tend the meeting Friday, even thu it is not the intent of the State Board of Education to hear indi vidua! citizens on the matter. The meeting is open to the public, how ever and superintendents and the boards of education will be heard.

Councilmen present were Ashby, Hardy, Barben, Price and Gardner. Others present were Supt. Wood, Treasurer Sorensen and ATTORNEY Eliason. Minutes were read and approved. Bills were presented and accepted. Mr. Wallace Jeffery met with the council and presented information on a program initiated by the Utah Tourist Council which will work "hand-in-hand" with the Council for the Aged program. If the program pro-gram is approved by Delta City and the Utah Tourist Council older per sons between the ages of 60 and 75 will be employed to staff a tourist tour-ist information booth for not more than 20 hovcs a week at $1.25 an hour. Mr. Jeffery explained the Utah Tourist Council's idea behind using older persons for a tourist information booth as being older persons need employment and are far more knowledgable about an area than younger persons are, such as been employed by the Neighborhood Youth Corps program. Action was tabled on the matter until more information is forthcoming. forthcom-ing. Councilman Barben and Mayor Morrison had a lengthy and some' what heated discussion again on the Delta Airport. Councilman in charge of the airport, is still of the opinion that the airport should be retabilitated to its original size. He explains his reasons as "this airport is and has always been list ed an emergency airport. It was correctly engineered at its beginning. begin-ning. As long as it is listed as an emergency airport, then I feel that Delta City should accept a $60,000 grant to improve and upgrade it. Runways at the airport are as im portant as any strip of road on any highway that is oiled," he said. Mayor Morrison maintains that it is too much airport for this area and has always been. He recommends recom-mends that the north-south runway be permanently closed and the taxi trip declared a runway. Mayor Morrison asks "Why should the original or-iginal mistake be perpetuated by each council?" The matter was never officially brought to a vote by council members. mem-bers. However council members authorized Councilman Barben to contact the State Aeronautical Board for cost estimates of re-surfacing runways, light, etc. Action was deferred until Mr. Barben re veives this information. The City is making arrangements to furnish maps of Delta City to Utran, Inc., showing the location of water and sewer mains. Utran, Inc. is working to bring natural gas to southern Utah. Other matters discussed concerned the cleanup or beautification Or dinance adopted in Sept., 1963 and enforcing it A discussion of sidewalk repair was led by Councilman Ashby The annual holiday party for city council members and partners, firemen and jeep posse members was briefly discussed. Councilman Price will be in charge of arrange ments The closing business concerned the old Delta High School property on Delta Main Street. Following a lengthy discussion Mayor Morrisson was authorized to write the Mil lard Board of Education and Supt. Talmage Taylor on the matter. The full text of Mayor Morrison's let ter is published below and is self- explanatory October 25, 1966 To Superintendent Talmage Taylor and the Millard County Board of Education: We have received the outline of the agreement under which you are offering to sell the old school property to Delta City, and we have the following observations to make concerning it: 1. The procedure under which Delta City might acquire the pro-perety pro-perety would have to be a lease, with option to buy, with the privilege pri-vilege of applying lease payments pay-ments on the purchase price. Otherwise we would have to hold a bond election, which is impractical. imprac-tical. 2. The City offered to pay a total to-tal of $50,000; $10,000 down and eight annual payments of $5000 each. We do not feel justified in assuming a higher financial burden. bur-den. 3. Delta City cannot agree to raze the old Junior High building, build-ing, as the building is substantial and might be put to use. The City can agree to raze the old High School building, but only if Federal aid can be obtained. The City will try to obtain this aid, but so far has no assurance that it will be granted. 4. Delta City would prefer to maintain a public right of way which would give you access to First East St., rather than have you reserve a private way. Now, since the terms you have tentatively offered would obligate the City for approximately $100, 000, the City Administration feels it cannot agree to those terms. In view of the fart that the City has always been generous in pro' viding property for school use at a very low cost to the Board, we trust the Board will see its ways clear to accept the City's offer of $50,000, to be paid in the manner it has outlined, without additional interest, and without the requirement require-ment that both buildings be razed If the Board wishes to regard this Cuiici as payment of a price of $10,000, plus interest, well and good. In any event, since it is clearly in the best interest of the people of the West Millard community to keep this area open for public use, the City does pledge its cooperation with the Board in working toward this objective, and we solicit the cooperation of the Board to this end. Yours very truly, Richard S. Morrison, for the Delta City Administration CUPS 0' TEA With billions of dollars being spent overseas in Foreign Aid and on the War on Poverty here at home to "aid the poor, helpless people of all lands and to better living conditions for all Americans" there is a group from coast to coast who may be termed "helpless" and who is worthy of everyone's concern con-cern and actions. This group is the young men between be-tween the ages of 19 and 26 whose every act is over-shadowed by the draft because of the war in Vietnam. Viet-nam. These young men are being denied de-nied the right to shape their own lives. Generally speaking, these are honorable young men who are willing will-ing to fill their military obligation to their country and know the importance im-portance of keeping our country militarily prepared and alert. The average adult is oftentimes astounded at the deep thought these young men have on the state of the nation today, its role in world affairs and its future. It has been said that the only true philosophers of our nation were our Founding Fathers. It's not at all improbable that some of our greatest philosophers of the future are in Vietnam right now. Is it possible that the majority of the people of this country care so little about the future of these young men that we will continue to acquiese to the war in Vietnam by our silence? The expressions that we hear every day of "helping the poor and underprivileged," which helps bring out the worst in some of us and the most charitable instincts in others, are becoming more trite to our eaers. In our opinion, that charitable feeling should be turned towards young men who are in Vietnam; young men who do care about the future of their country because it involves their own future. This nation's first "cup of tea" should be to win the war in Vietnam Viet-nam as quickly as possible. Its second "cup of tea" can then be playing Big Brother and concentrating concen-trating on the War on Poverty. Deseret Dist. Boy Scouts to Sponsor Pheasant Hunt Unit This year the Deseret District Scouts will sponsor and sell pheasant pheas-ant hunting permits to local as well as outside hunters. For years the West Millard Hospital has had the project with Delta-West Millard Kiwanis Club in charge of selling the permits. This project has now been turned over to the Scouts. Each ward in the stake has helped help-ed with the sign-up of land including includ-ing Lynndyl, Leamington, Oak City, which areas will be in the posted hunting units. In excess of 300,000 acres has been signed up. All pheasant hunters must have a hunting permit at $1.00. This permit per-mit is good for all areas including Lynndyl, Leamington and Oak City, except land posted "no hunting" or "no trespassing." A lecense has been granted the Deseret District by the State Fish and Game Dept., and it is urged that all local hunters get their permits per-mits early, at any of the several places of business in town. The proceeds from this will go toward sponsoring the scout program: pro-gram: Cubs, Guides, Scouts, Explor ers. Nearly every boy in the area is helped with this program. OIL COMPANIES DONATE Five local oil companies are donating do-nating the fuel which will be used in the equipment required to build the new football field. Donating 150 gallons each are the Conoco Oil, American Oil, Standard Oil, West Millard Co-op and Phillips 66. This information was not known by the Chronicle until Tuesday of this week. MEASLES CLINIC Measles Clinic for children from nine-months to five years is scheduled sched-uled for Saturday, Nor. 5. at Delta First Ward. 9:00 ajn. to 11:00 a.m. A permanent-type measles racine is being used, according to County Health Nurse Mary Graff and a charge of $1.00 will be made to pay for expenses of conducting the clinic.
