The Big Problem this year for the Board
of Education and its president, Mr. Emil F.
Seador, was the planning of the new high school
on the Wartburg Property. This project seemed
to cause much controversy throughout the city,
but we greatly appreciate the fact that our
Board is doing everything it can to hasten the
date of actual construction. We had hoped to
be able to report that the city would allow a
special spring referendum on the approval of
the issuance of bonds for the financing of the
project, but as we go to press, the city's alder-
men have just voted to postpone all voting until
the general election in November.
Another duty of the Board of Education
was to approve the use of funds for the upkeep
of the schools. Davis was not neglected, for back
in March we noticed that the halls of Davis were
being repaired prior to the painting of the entire
school this summer.
A great honor came recently to the Board,
when Mrs. Carl S. Weist, one of the newer mem-
bers, for her excellent work on the Board of
Education as well as for her many other im-
portant activities in the city, was elected the
Outstanding Citizen of Mount Vernon for 1949.
When we realize that We have such quali-
Hed and representative citizens on our School
Board, it is no wonder to us that outstanding
accomplishments are made in the educational
developments of the Mount Vernon Public
