Hearings Conclude After Three Days Of Testimony The Cheney school board has until Monday to reconsider its dreeison to abolish Lowell Poore's position ms assisnt superintendent of Cheney schools. Three. days of public hear- ings ended Wednesday n,i,ght a,nd the directors were to,ld a decision must be rendered within five days:. During this period the directors may elect to re:affiTm theLr April 8 de- cision to abolish the poition, renew Poare's contract or ar- rive at some other decision. Ii hey decide to mairaa their presen,t poaiUon Peeve may then 'take his case to the Super- ior Court. Poore's &ttorney Merritt Jo hnson conl,uded his portion of the hearrgs by suggeshg the direetoes "backtrack a lit- tle ht and take amther lok at the situation." Johnson said he dd,n't ques- tion the board's righ to exer- cise its disto,naw pover, "but it s]rould be done within the amework of ,the law," he said. Serious Question J'tms:o said, "I think there is areal serous question, when we get right dawn to R, whet:h- er `the school district culd opera*e wth nly one superin- tendent." He said the motion to abol- ish Poo,re's position was taken "somewhat precipitiosly," and t ha't the board s,ho.uld make a detai, led i, nquiry into tt'e subject. The Cheney attorney sgid he didn't necessarily ,hold to the position that it takes a su- perintendent and an assistant superin,tenden;t "m the district, a,rd at perhaps sne alter- rte' conchtston could be reached. "Bu it sm,u,ld be reached Mer a great deal move study ,has been given to  matter than what has ,nv been giv- en," he said. Johnson said, "I do betieve there are some serious legal questns regarcUg the action taken April 8." Paul Murphy, deputy county prosecutor represeting the baaxt, told the directress that he believed the dismissal mo- tion was .taken with suffirient cause and without nal basis. "It is my bah'el that evi- dence and testiman ' given here is nt of sfficient weight to overcme the action weh was taken n: good h, in what the hoard believes was sufficient cause, not on a pes- sorl  bt for lmt it be- lieved to be or e good of the distil, ,to divert funds befrg paid Ix) adminrative saMries to other are." "I think the ,b ae in good faith and not in ar ar- bitrary and capricious man- ller." Summation by the. attorneys ended the lmMic heaing which began last Friday. Al the di- i ree.os pls Mrs. W. A. Gain- on, whose lmsba Was for- mevl$ a member of the board, Bob Wilson, Cheey Coat,actor, Penre and Dr. Rimrd C. Lang- :on took the witn altair.
