FROST .................................. PUBLISHER JACK PIERCE .................................... EDITOR Why Not Monday? Cheney school board member Richard Rus- sell strggested a couple of weeks ago that school hoard meetings be .switched fvarn Wed- nesday .to Friday. Russell pointed out ,that sate law requires such me&lt;ings to be 'held on Fridays. The law, o course, is ,am, archaic one and is due for change at the next legis- hture. Russell's suggestion, however, was a good one in our opinion, in that it wuld move the meetings away from Wednesday night. We suggest, however, that instead of Friday, the meetings be held Monday evenings, either once r twice a month .as needed. Friday evening moo.tings wouM not be very satisfactory for anyone---sclmM u ",dmivjstm- tots, board members, school patroo.s or the press. Meefirgs dagging on u,rrtil midnight the start of a weekend would hardly be the a,rver if a change is needed. Such a change eeukl very well eliminate the presence of a re- porter at the meetings much of the ,time be- cause of other conmRtrnertts suVh s athletic events and personal affairs. The sult would be school news coverage from  second .hand source, whivh usually is not very satisfactory for anyone involved.
