At Spanaway, only two school director candidates are filed, both to succeed themselves. T h e y are Robert Steidel and John Newell. Spanaway voters will also act upon a proposed special levy of 5 mills, for construction of an addition to Spanaway school, which will need a 4-0-60 vote to carry. The consolidated district seems to be generally favored at Spanaway. Election will be at Spanaway school.

If proposed bond issue and mill· age levy carry, they arc estimated to raise slightly more than $300,000, based on the present more than $3,· 000,000 valuation of the consolidated district. Th a t $300,000 plus would be matched by the state with more than $800,000 to bring the total available for school construction to more than $1,100,000 which is thought adequate to build the type of high school needed here. Approx· imately $I 0,000 or more of the 11mount would be used to complete additions to the Midland g r a d e school. If the third proposition on the special ballot, pnrchase of the "Old Man's I--Iome" tract at Portland avenue and Airport road, for $2+,000, is approved, the high school would be built there with plans calling for it to be ready to go into operation in September, 1950. The school would accommodate at least 1,000 students, possibly 1,200, with pro· vision for future addition to care for a total enrollment of 1,500. The buildings would provide all standard high school facilities, plus equipment for extensive vocational tra1n1ngFacilities would include gyms, auditorium to seat at least 1,500, separate swimming· pools for boys and girls and other features. Completion of the auditorium and one swimming pool might be left to future years. During the first year of the high school's operation all costs would be subsidized in full by the state. Absentee ballots for the District 402 school election are available now at the office of County Superintend· ent of Schools Ruth Bethel, in Taco1na. Also on the hallo! for Saturday, in addition to the three propositions, will be contests for the five school director posts created by consolida· tion of the Parkland, Midland-Har· vard, .Collins and Central Avenue sc;hool districts last year. Clifford 0. Olson, Parkland, and Chester A. Larson, Central Avenue, are 'unopposed for three and twoycar terms, respectively. The second Parkland directorship, a one-year term, is being contested by G. O. Stovner and Otto C. Siburg. Op· posed at Midland, 3-year term, are Andrew Christensen and Robert T. Clinton. Seeking the two-year term from Collins are C. P. Blanchard Jr. and John G. Gorow. Olson, Larson, Stovner, Christensen and Gorow are members of the temporary board of directors now directing the district . NORMAN CARL GULLIXSON A son, named N o r m a n Carl, weighing 7 pounds, 10 ounces, was born February 22 to the Rev. and Mrs. Walther Gullixson. He was received home Tuesday by his broth· er, Teddy, who. will be two years old this month. Grandmothers are Mrs. Gullixson of Parkland and Mrs. Reese of Kennewick.
