Berry, Bingen -- Bernard Polio:d, White Salmon GANDERS SAYS LYLE HEARING MOST IMPORTANT EVER At the request of State Repre- sentative Frank Bouillet, chair- man of the state legislature's House Education Committee, County School Supt. G'ace Ferry called an emergency meeting of school organizations and individuals in- terested in education in Lyle Mon- day night, Feb. 13. The meeting was to hear pro- visions of House Bill No. 325 which proposes to reorganize ex- .isting County School Superinten- dents' offices into Regional Ser- vice Areas. The lengthy bill was read by County Supt. Ferry and explain- ed by Jim Spalding, Bickleton school board director and mem- ber of the State Board of Educa- tion. Audience opinion was divided for and against the proposed bill. No decision was reached at the meeting but those presert were urged to convey their personal conclusions to their legislators in Olympia. Strong opposl,tion to House Bill 325 was expressed in a letter from former State Senator Stanton Gan- ders of Bickleton who has author- ized publication of excerpts from his letter. Slanton Ganders HELD IN COUNTY support of the State School Dis- tricts Association. These proponents do not attempt to show the taxpayers any econ- omy in this wierd and compli- cated system. Some of the boost- ers admit that it will cost the tax- payers more "Many small county superinten- dents cannot be blamed for ad- vocating this departure rom the traditional "American system. "Some have been promised pc)- sitions situated in their old coun- ty offices, acting in a sub-capacity under the regional office and re- ceiving a better salary than at present. "Under the bill other and all superintendents, along with their present personnel, are promised jObs in .the regional office ,if this bill .passes. "I also want to point out that it has .been the goal of certain people .to gain more revenue for schools by eliminating *he County Assessor. This is a greater threat today than ever.
