SIXTY-EIGHTH YEAR MONROE, SNOHOMISH COUNTY, WASHINGTON-THURSDAY, JANUARY 18,1968 NUM3ER 52 IArmed Forces News (EO133) USS LO,G BEACH (CG(N) 9) (FH- TNC) January 9--Air- man George J. Lang, USN, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Lang of Route 2, participated in "Bead Strlnger" as a crewmember aboard the nuclear-powered guided missile cruiser USS Long Beach. It was also reported that Naval Reserve En- sign Danny L.

TO OPEN IN MARCH is this new Monroe branch office of Eastside Savings and Loan currently under construction at the south- west corner of Main and Lewis Streets, The building of brick and glass has been designed to be one of the most modern buildings in Monroe, built in the heart of the city and offering off-street parking. Fox told the Monroe Board of Education Mon- day that a levy election in November and land acquisition even earlier were essential steps the board should consider in meeting the need. "Our growth is fantastic," Fox said. "In the month of December in one elementary school alone there were 17 new students and 5 with- drawls for a total of 12 additional students. On January 2, on a single day, 12 new students enrolled in the district." He said since October of 1965 the Monroe district showed a gain of 36.6 per cent, the largest per-centage in the county. Fox further illustrated: "Projected figures indicate where we had 1,800 students last October, we will have 2,034 next fall, 2,264 in 1969, 2,685 in 1970, 2,878 in 1971 and 3,100 in 1972." For next Fall alone, Fox said, three kinder- garten rooms would be needed, additional first, second and third grade rooms and a continued program room for a total of seven classrooms for the first three grades.
