PARKLAND POST NO. 223 AlVIEIUCAN LEGION l\fcetings every second and fourth Friday at B:OO p.rn. in the Sunshine Hall Hear tell that there is a rumor going around our fair community that the next Community club meet~ ing will be the scene of a battle roynl. Weapons will be chords and the ammunition is said to he a questionable collection of chords and djscords-mostly discords. The firemen have accepted our c!!lll!cng-e, to enter upon the field of honor with fLlur of their most talented memlwrs in an effort to dislodge from the minds of a like number of our mem bcrs that they (the Legion) comprise .the best quartet in the vicinity. May we point out at the beginning that this affair will be for music lovers only, and don't stay away if you have trouble with your hearing organs because you will probably be better off than anyone Plse in th<' place-might help too if you were partially blind as none of us is very beautiful. Music critics are warned in advance that this affairc d'honour can be likened to ascertaining which is the best of the lesser of two evils and that they are reqtwsted to try to control themselves and restrain from being too harsh on the contestants. The firemen have assured us that they will ha\'(' their quartet on hand for the affair and the Leg· ion is not backing down, even though we have hrnrd that the Fire hall has been the scene of sewral practice sessions. The Post quartet is distinguished by the fact that it is the only group of its kind, that: record can be found of, that is without benefit of practice-we pradice in front of our audiences and people have told us that we sound tel'l'ible. However, that does not discourage our efforts. Now for the announcement which comes, pn.hahly, as a complete surprise to certain partit>s. In any r.ont<•st in which a winner is to be detcnnincd there, of course, must be a suitable prize given as added iucentin" Commander Kittelson wishes to make public the fact that hr, personally, will donate half of the prize, with the understanding that the president (prescnt, that is) of the Community club will match with a like amount.

Failure of the state school authorities to provide the state share from the emcrgenr'.y fund would necessarily delay construction of Franklin Pierce high until after November, 1950, when voters of the state will ballot on an issue of $+0,000,000 in bonds, proposl'd hy the lrgislaturc for school construction. It is also possible that the legislature may be railed back into session during the interim, to l.~rovid.c a ~ol~tio~ to expected state linanc1al d1ff1cult1es.

On the Short End


There can be little surprise that the 3 lst session of the state legislature bas adjourned without solving the state's prime Jjroblern-thc balancing of outgo to income. However, there is room for mucb dissatisfaction at the way the problem was shirked by the legislators. It became apparent early in the session that the majority factions of the two houses were irreconcilably opposed on financial approach and more interested in cross-criticism than compromise. Less voluble than house Speaker Hodde. the Republican leaders of the Senate came closer to a realistic tax effort, but displayed noticeable lack of enthusaistic support of their own tax projects whenever House opposition was met. Speaker Hodde grabbed off headlines with loud talk and grandiose gestures but at the showdown wanted no part .of



(Editor's Note: This is the fifth in a series of informative articles dealing with procedures and effects of municipal incorporation, for consideration with regard to possible incorporation of the community of Parkland. It is evident that problems of discharging such civic functions as arc cited below become more acute as population becomes more dense. Therefor, at some stage of its clevdopmcnt a community must consider whether to change to a municipal governnwnt.)
