JACK PHILLEO Certainly to move f.orward you must have .a starting pohat. It appears Step Number 1 is the logical :starting p,hce. The collection of taxes, being di- vided over the hree years, will lessen the burde and will get the eommunty started in a forward direction. The plans, as proposed, vill enable the schools to continue to expand as the need arises. I am in favor of the phn po@od by the Board a,nd ad- nfinistraticn.
