attendance records. How the oftice personnel could remain
patient and courteous through all this was a maior miracle,
but they did.
Lesley Anders and Barbara Baird lbelowl were among the first
student helpers to be instructed into the mysteries of the Royal
McBee system. Co-op students Sandy Dawson and Sue Bowser

Faced with the multitudinous problems of directing a
complex and rapidly expanding school system,
l.ivonia's excellently qualified, forward looking, and
hard working Board of Education devotes much effort
toward the maintenance and improvement of a first-
rate secondary school program.
Bentley was of immediate concern this year as its
heavy enrollment necessitated an addition to the school
plant. Available next September will be new ottices,
music facilities, and an auditorium.
Meanwhile, plans are progressing rapidly for a second
community high school, scheduled to be opened in
'l962. By that time physical facilities should be ade-

to guarantee the finest high school educational oppor-
tunity for every Livonia youth.
