Conditions are very crowded in our high school and grades. This year our enrollment is 15% larger than last year; while last year it .was 10% larger than the year before. In 1926-27 our enrollment was 235, in 1927-28 it was 255, and this year of 1928-29, it has increased to 297. 1 Temporary quarters for the first grade have been provided in the Jones facilities which would equal those of building, but this structure was never any of the surrounding communities intended for a school and creates a; and would -uphold the reputation of We would have a combined auditorium and gymnasium which would care for all school plays, games, and other activities. This would also be a wonderful asset and convenience to the community for large gatherings. The curriculum would be enriched by providing for the teaching of domestic science, manual training, and other subjects. Proper library facilities would be provided so that every high school pupil would have the use of the library. What a "New Building Would Mean to the Community This building would give us school condition which is unsatisfactory and should be relieved. In high school every room is being used to maximum capacity and yet the needs are not met. Pupils are crowded into rooms so packed that seating space is difficult to find. Pupils and teachers are most seriously handicapped under these conditions. Classes must he held in rooms which are unsuited to the purpose. "Equipment must be moved about and cannot be used to advantage. Classes must be held in rooms adjacent to where the orchestra and other music classes meet, and due to the noise it is almost impossible to conduct a recitation. "Lack of Facilities Children. must_store their clothing in narrow corridors where they get* knocked down and trampled in the dirt. The toilets are in the basement where it is dark and unsanitary; producing a condition which is dangerous to health. The Old Building The old building was erected about 60 years ago and has been used with practically no changes ever since. The population of the village and the school enrollment has increased very much since that time, but the accommodations remain the same. The activities and subjects in the school have multiplied considerably in that time. Sciences, domestic arts, manual training, physical education, school social activities, plays, programs, etc., are now recognized as an essential part of every school. The demands of the regular class work have increased correspondingly, but no exti;a room has been provided. Only by the 100% use of all available space together with the opera house and the Jones building, have we been able to get along as well as we have. The old building is a literal fire trap and is deplored by every fire inspector that visits the building. Due to the interior wood construction and oiled floors, if a fire got started it would soon become uncontrollable and be a menace to the lives of any occupants of the building. As has been repeatedly pointed out, the roof leaks like a sieve, the floors are worn out and" are breaking through, the plaster has fallen off or; Saline for being a progressive community. It would provide for the educational needs of the children and furnish them with the surroundings to which they are entitled as future American citizens. A new school building would increase property values and would be an incentive for people to move to Saline to make it their permanent residence. The location of Saline with respect to Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Detroit is such that with a new school it should become a high class residential town. Saline has good streets, a good water and sewer sys tern, beautiful churches, excellent street lights, well kept homes; has everything except a good school building. - -A good school draws pupils and business to a community. If Saline does not keep up with other communities in providing school accommodations, then this business will go elsewhere. A commodious combined auditorium and gymnasium, with cooking facilities adjacent, would be a great thing for the whole community as well as for the children of the school. It would provide a place for holding community gatherings of every description. Other communities find that this part of the building is used nearly every night. If a new building were built it would provide work for a large number of local people while under construction. How Much Will a fN"ew Building Cost? Estimates from architects show that a good modern fireproof building which will more than provide for our present need and care for our growth for several years to come can he erected for about $175,000. The bond issue will cover the entire cost. Provision is made so that the building can be added to if future needs require. How Will This Affect the Taxes? We are fortunate in having a low tax rate to start with. Our tax rate fhas averaged about 90 cents per hundred of assessed valuation. The average for the state in towns of this size is $1.79 per hundred, or about twice our rate. The valuation of our district at the Special Election * ! A special meeting will be held at the high school on January 15,-1929. j at 3:00 p. m. Eastern Standard-time.! The polls will open at 3 o'clock and will continue open until 8 p. m. Qualifications of* Voters In order to vote the state law requires that a person must possess the following qualifications: '* 1. They must -be a citizen of the United States. 2. They must be 21 years of. age. 3. They must own property,, real or personal, which is assessed ior taxes in the district. 4. They must have resided in the district for at least three months next preceding the election. Where property is owned jointly by man and wife, under joint deed, both shall be eligible to vote provided both shall have the above qualifications for voting. Conclusion We have given this matter our very careful consideration, and we believe that a new school building is essential to care for the children. We believe that this Is the most practical solution of the problem. Accommodations must be provded for the education of the children and this can be done without making it a financial burden. We have spent a lot ot time visiting new schools, interviewing other board members, superintendents, architects, educational authorities and others, seeking information from as many sources, as possible. As your elected representatives we have tried to work out the best possible solution to our acute school situation, and we believe that this proposition meets the conditions and is the best solution, all things considered.

When rooms are as crowded as they are here the air serial bonds, the young people who increase in the school tax of less than $15 per year. "Further, by floating becomes almost unbearable To put this building in condition for use another year would require the expenditure of a considerable sum of money. All money spent on the old "building is a total loss, but it will n need to spent unless a new building is provided. Even that would not relieve the crowded condition which will be worse another year. What We Would Have in a New Building We would have plenty of rooms which would be suited to the purpose for which they were intended. Each child could he given a seat with adequate heat, light, and ventilation: amid surroundings that promote health and stimulate work. get the use of the building -will pay for the most of it. University Inspector's Comment The University Committee on Accredited Schools in its letter of June 1927, after a visit to our school, says: "In re-accrediting your school for the two year term, the committee wishes to urge that careful attention be giv.en to the following recommendations: That an effort he made to secure, the erection of a modern school building. Our inspector says in his report that the building is old and dangerous; stairs are steep, narrow, and winding. The laboratory facilities are poor. There is no provisr ion for manual training, home economics, or physical training." Methodist Church Notes S.
