The Fardale Community Association heard School Board President C. F. Tibbals explain the school budget for the coming year. Particular attention was paid in his talk to the need for additional teachers because of higher enrollment. He spoke also of the special propositions on the ballot, to be voted on by local voters on February 9th. These special propositions included $150 for improvement of playgrounds, $1,756.47 for new equipment and furniture. Of particular local interest was the proposition to transfer over $22,000 from the George Washington School account to those of Commodore Perry and Betsy Ross. This was, Tibbals explained, merely a technical transfer unexpected bond issue monies and did not represent any slighting of Fardale students.
