At the meeting of the Staun-
ton Parent-Teacher Association,
held Thlusday evening, a cam-
paign was started which, it is
fondly hoped, will result in the
construction of new grade school
facilities in the not-too-distant fu-
ture. We hope that this cam-
paign will gather momentum, and
that we will soon see concrete
evidence of modern facilities for
the education of the children who
are now in grade school, and those
of future. generations who seem to
he coming on in increasing num-
bers. That Staimton needs better
and more modern facilities to
house its most important "busi-
ness" has long been apparent. The
old grade school building, com-
pleted in 1881, and the "newer"
additions built in 1907, has certain-
ly sewed their purpose. They
were no doubt adequate for many
years, but, like all other struc-
tures, they have become outmod-
ed, and modern trends .in educa-
tion put them in the class of the
horse and buggy era. Our young-
sters, and those of the future, are
entitled to the best in education-
as good as is offered in other
cities and villages in this area.
'Ib provide such education, mod-
ern buildings should be provided
so that nothing will hamper the
advancement of the program. Re-
cent legislation passed by the
state.legislature require the teach-
ing of courses which cannot be

their great grandparents went to
school in the old building. It is
true, the structures were built
well--but time has a habit of un-
doing wl ' '
To us this is the wrong way of
thinking. It has always been our
firm belief that the elementary
school is far more important than
any other phase of education, and
more particularly the first two or
three grades. It is here where the
very foundation isilaid, and if
this foundation is not solid, the
results in the higher grades, in
high school and in college, are
We have no accurate idea what
a new grade school will cost, but
we know that splendid structures
have been built in recent years at
places which are no different from
Staunton. We are certain that
our people can and will carry the
financial load over an extended
period of years. We have always
said that the citizens, of Staunton
and vicinity want the best for
their children, and are willing to

We are proud of our new building which is just being completed. Yet,
we as teachers are proud and much more concerned with the lives we are help-
ing young people build. If we in some way help them build healthier bodies,
build keener minds, build more pleasant personalities, build moral character,
and build a respect for themselves,their fellow man, and their country, we
feel that our work has been well rewarded.

It has become imperative that high schools offer specialized counseling services.
Our school has answered that demand with educational, personal, and vocational guid-
ance as a part of the vocational guidance program. Each member of the senior English
class is given six weeks work experience in the area in which he feels that he would
like to enter after graduation. This successful program has grown each year since it
was started in 1953, with the grade school and the hospital acting as "employers".
Each year new people have helped this project to grow until we have Picco's Garage,

The all-important special elec-

will be asked to approve the con-

just south of the present high
school, owned by the districtg and
also to authorize the issuance of

tional elections. By residents i's
meant those who have resided in
the district at least 30 days, in
the county 90 days, and in the
state a year.
The Star-Times has in the past
few issues presented reasons why
this new grade school is necessary,
and urgently requests all those
who are interested in the welfare
of the youngsters in the district
to vote YES on both propositions.
The cost to each person, spread
over a 20-year period, is relatively
small, considering the importance
and necessity of the project. The
property owners will pay only 32
cents per S100 of assessed valua-
tion per year. By any means of
computation, the investment in
modern, improved educational fa-
cilities for the citizens of the fu-
ture will be a sound one. It is
certain that the new school' will

Supt. Diel Reported on
Schools at Rotary Meeting
J. Harold Diel, superintendent of
schools for Community Unit Dis-
trict No. 6, was the speaker at the
meeting of the' Rotary Club held
Monday evening at the Zion school
ner in which the money in the ed-
ucational fund is being spent, and
that the increase authorized by
the district voters will in a num-
ber of years wipe out the debt
caused by anticipation warrants
issued in years past. He said that
the board had adopted a salary
schedule for teachers, which places
elementary teachers on the same
level as high school teachers, con-
sidering the hours of college work,
degrees earned, etc.
Mr. Diel stressed the fact that

Supt. J. Harold Diel Was
Speaker at Lions Meeting
At Monday evening's meeting
of the Staunton Lions Club, held
at the Dohnal Cafe, Supt. J. Har-
old Diel of Community Unit School
District No. 6, was the principal
speaker. Mr. Diel told of the
progress being made in the con-
struction of the new elementary
school building, which is scheduled
to be ready for occupancy at the
start of the 1955-56 school term.
He explained how the funds -made
available through the SS540,000.00
bond issue, authorized by the vo-
ters of the district last spring, is
being spent, and how the equip-
ment which is necessary will be
financed. He paid a deserved
compliment to the members of the
board of education for their far-
sighted planning, which will as-
sure an adequate school building
for the needs of the community.
Mr. Diel also explained how the
money in the educational fund is
expended, and how the deficit
which was built up in previous
years will be amortized within a
few years because of the increase
in tax rates which was authorized
last year by the voters of the dis-
trict. He told of the new salary
schedule for teachers adopted by
the board, which equalizes the
salaries of all teachers on a. basis
of college work, degrees earned,
-and years of teaching expeignce.
' Of coursefnriew school facilities
will cost money. It would be
foolish to ignore this fact. But
the value of elementary educa-
tion is far greater than any sum
of money such a program would
require. If the people of this
district really want their child-
ren, and their grandchildren, to
have as good an elementary edu-
cational program as have the
youngsters in practically every
other comparable district, the cost
can easily be assimilated over a
period of years. As we have said
so many times before, we

Bonding Company to
of Elementary School
The board of education of Com-
munity Unit School District No. 6
at a special meeting held on Sept.
1 notified the Central States Con-
struction Company, general con-
tractors on the new Staunton el-
ementary school, that because of
their failure to complete the build-
ing on time, and because of their
failure to pay suppliers and sub-
contractors, their contract would
be forfeited. After the proper
time had elapsed, the Manufac-
turers' Casualty Company, the
surety for Central States, was no-
tified that they must take over
the completion of the contract.
On Tuesday of this week Mr.
Adkins, representative of the Man-
ufacturers' Casualty Company, ar-
rived in Staunton to take over
the work of completing the pro-
ject. Mr. Adkins informs us that
he expects to use all of the sub-
contractors heretofore employed
on the job. He expects to get the
