Peterson said last week that no more burning permits would be is- sued, adding that "the fact that we won't issue another permit doesn't mean that they won't be able to burn there. The permits are just a formality, with no meaning law- fully. ' ' "Although burning at a dump ts enforceable by court action," Peter- son said, "we haven't and don't expect to take any municipality to court; we expect cooperation." Regarding other cities in the county, Peterson said that as far as he knew only Everett had changed to the land fill procedure. ocal Servicemen wait Holiday Cards Local persons who would like to send a Christ- card toan area serviceman (or servicemen) tn Vietnam, still have a dozen mailing days left.

Main St. Monroe 794-7373 Dec. 1 Monitor, Monroe, Wash., Page Three MARGEURITE Grad- en, Monroe school caf- eteria manager, stirred up one of her final pots of soup in the kitchen of the Frank Wagner School last week. After 21 years with the school district, she has sub- mitted her letter of resignation, effective at the end of this month. The school board accepted her move "with regret" and agreed to present her with a Certificate of Merit award at a Margeurite Graden future board meeting. School Board (From Page 1) use, Is $585,139. The bond issue proposition would authorize the sale of bonds in the amount of $654,000 according to Director Lawrence W. Whitfield. "We'll tell the voters that the schools are run- ning out of operating money and about the bargain in school construction funds that is available to us," Harntss said. "The state will pay 85 cents to our 15 for school construction." Plans outlined by Harntss indicated that the lay committee speakers would be accompanied by school personnel to answer the "technical ques- tions." "I have never seen such enthusiastic public support as was demonstrated at the steering com- mittee meeting, Heichel said. "It's really a pleasure to work with such a group." Superintendent Ernest Fox asked about financing of the campaign to promote the levy and bond issue election. Heichel replied, "We'll beasking the Lions, Kiwanis, the Chamber of Commerce and the Jaycees for donations and support. We have already sold 30 or 35 "Vote Schools" buttons for a dollar each. We'll be asking for endorsements from individuals and permission to use their name in newspaper ads. Passing the school levy will take unified community effort and I think the issues will pass on January 21." The Citizens Save Our Schools Steering Com- mittee had selected Harold Johnson as budget director and Nels Carlson as ways and means chairman. Dorothy Moberg is secretary. Publicity, consisting of preparation and dis- tribution of printed materials, newspaper ads, vote signs, grocery bag campaigns and church flyer distribution is the responsibility of Gloria Hopkins.

Half-ttmepres- entations will be made at the basketball games. Students will provide door to door solicitation of voter interest by passing out sample ballots. The student committee is also responsible for car signs and other sign placement and removal. School board president Warren Simon said, "A great deal is at stake. I'll sleep a little better at night knowing of the enthusiastic support and efforts of the Citizens Save Our Schools Com- mittee." Chairman Dean Harniss said that it was hoped that 50 or 100 people would participate in the committee's efforts. He explained that the com- mittee would be assisted by consultants such as Roy Harding, President of the Monroe Education Association, Superintendent Ernest Fox and Ad- 00Watch G Io mtnistrative Assistant Eugene Elledge. es a re The Citizens Save Our Schools Committee plans Accutroil from $110.00 to concentrate its efforts to gain voter under- EB standing and approval of the school money re- UIova $39195 - $95.00 quests during the last three weeks before the Caravelle from $10.95 January 21 election date, according to Harntss. ,Wyler $39.95 up i i--- Timex from $6.95 ] [ Diamond Watches  gagement __ "J' "eepsake En- B irt,,ton00 Crc se"00'00s or Lockets Boys Initial $6.95 Bp /31{ =.,.,.,.. ea :n And for Baby " I IUIII ,U Silver or Gold I .......
