Board devotes talent and time to educational progress. Following the March, l958, election, in which voters indicated their favor of changing the system to a Third Class district, Livonia's Public Schools began the current school year with a seven-member board instead of the five-member board which had managed the affairs of the district since its formation. Comprising this group, which annually devotes hundreds of hours to the cause of education in spite of the heavy responsibilities of their regular full-time positions, are L. Joseph Crofton, president, Herbert E. Nelson, vice president, Claude Snarey, secretary, A. Ward McCain, trustee, Erwin S. Brown, trustee, Robert O. Dodge, trustee, and Dr. Ralph Rabinovitch, trustee. The latter three were new to the Board this year, Mr. McCain has had eleven years previous experience with the Livonia Board. Facing the problems compounded by rapidly increasing school enroll- ments and the necessity of expanding school facilities, increased oper- ating costs and falling revenues from State sources, the Board of Education has initiated the construction of four new elementary schools and three additions during the past year. lt has also provided for future buildings by purchasing numerous sites for elementary and secondary schools in rapidly developing areas, where land costs are rising. Organized into five committees, the Board has held countless special meetings and conferences in addition to regular meetings. These com- mittees were formed to study: lll community programs and special services, T21 finance, l3l buildings and sites, Ml instruction, and i5l ioint poo E339 E13 no-1 :ra-"' 300 ... al., Krug QE: .-1 230 a.:2. fo-a 1 ?a'g' ooo ,. fs-aa - 140 ...o 92 aa.

The titles are not as comprehensive as the many duties performed by these two ladies. Hub of our universe is the office. Bentley's Grand Central Station is its office, where arrivals and departures are as frequent as in the New York station, even if they are for different reasons. Here are located the assistant principals, the secretaries, the bookkeeping and record departments. Here files are kept, mail boxes are filled, emptied, and refilled, the P-A is supervised. Here students come to report their woes and occasional ioys. No bigger than a minute, this office is nevertheless the scene of incredible quantities of work as normal daily routine. 1 X X , .ffl 'P' Y, I4 1 Sellingschoolsupplies land boaksinseasonl, is one ofthe many office activities for which Miss Robinson is responsible.
