The meeting, set for the board room in the adminis- tration building on South Ninth Street, actually is to allow the thousands of School District residents to take a look at how the District will operate next school year and how it will pay for this oper- ation. The s e s s i o n, properly known as the public hearing on the preliminary budget for the 1963-64 school year. actually will be on two bud- gets. One is an austerity mcklel resulting from cur- tailed state support, the oth- er a less stripped-down ver- sion which depends upon passage of a 6-mill special levy at the May 21 school election. This levy would raise about $100,000 The pared-down prelimin- ary totals $1,6~.000. The to- tal if the special levy is voted will be $1,758,000. By com- parison, the 1961-62 budget was $1,283,000 and that for this school year, now near its end, is $,1,658,000. Be- tween those two years the district added a high school and grade school. SUPERINTENDENT T. R. Peering points out that spe- cial operation levies are al- most the rule with all school districts this year due to re- duced state support. The Is- saquah District, however, not only will have less state aid but it will have a bigger job to do. A counW-wide study indicates that the district must get ready for 566 more for in Issaquah schools. No across-the-board pay in- crease is included but the board plans to stick with the salary schedule under which it hired its teachers To do this it must find about $36,000 to pay the increases teachers earn for additional years of service and for taking ad- vanced studies in their fields. IN BACKFIRING against the possibility that the special levy may not be approved, budgetary shears were ap- plied at vulnerable points in the estimates of expendi- tures. Like any householder in this predicament the di- rectors have but few places to work. Like a householder, they must pay water, power, telephone and fuel bills, in- surance, groceries, and a lot pupils this fall. This involves of other expenses which they hiring 17 additional teachers. In the face of this growth, payments of state equaliza- tion money will be upped only about 2 per cent, or $5288 from the $254.000 of this year, while "education unit support" (roughly, state payments per teacher) has been cut about $102 per unit and will yield a total of $473,- 000.

Quarrying Held In Violation Operation of a quarry on the west side of Squak Moun- tain was declared to be in vi- olation of the county zoning ordinance by Justice of the Peace Evans D. Manolides at a hearing Monday. Fines of $100 and of $50 were imposed on the respec- tive defendants, Sunset Quar- ries, Inc., operator, and Northern Pacific Railway, owner. They gave notice of appeal. The defense had con- tended that the quarry had non-conforming use status be- cause its operation antedated county restrictions. County prosecutor deputies counter- ed that the quarry lost this status because it stood idle for several.years. Residents and landowners of the area had complained about the blasting in the quarry operation. A selection of books from the library will be on hand and will be issued to borrow- ers. The board wants every literate citizen to be equip- pad with a card when the new library opens, probably in June, Mrs. Souders said. Mrs. Dorothy Carter, Issa- quah Librarian, reports that already 3000 titles have been stockpiled for new library quarters, many of them new- ly published. If shelving is available the new library will house about 10,000 rifles. By comparison the present li- brary space can hold only about 4000 books. About 2300 of them are adult fic- tion and nun-fiction. Juvenile books and those for small children make up the rest The present collection is constantly being rotated, books no longer circulated are returned to the county headquarters and replaced by others The new and larger collection will be operated in this way, also. Zoning Code OK'd by County King County's new zoning code was adopted Monday by County Commissioners with- out change or serious objec- tions. Commissioner Ed Monro, chairman,said the new code is easier to understand and more flexible in its residence development rules than the ,present one. It will allow mixed developments of mul- tiple dwellings and single dwellings and allow different sizes of lots in one develop- ment to better utilize the land. The new code will become effective only after district maps are prepared and hear- ings held on its local applica- tion. Copies of the code may be secured from the Issaquah Press.

VFW Post Marks 190 Bikes Here One hundred ninety bicy- cles were marked Saturday by teams of VFW post mem- bers who held the "bike safe- ty clinics" at Memorial Field, and at Sunny Hills, Sunset, May Yalley and Pres- ton schools. Scotchlight material was donated by the manufactur- er and booklets on bicycle safety and first aid were con- tributed by an insurance firm and a first aid supply com- pany.

Commerce Labor Day com- mittee announced today that it is dropping the traditional parade from its plans for the 1963 celebration. The cele- bration will consist of a Com- munity Circus and rides, al- ready contracled at a cost of $600, a queen program, and a coronation dance, several top flight acts provided by pro- fessional entertainers and several sporting events, not yet definitely scheduled. Chamber spokesmen said the parade, big attraction of the celebration (and biggest expense) is being dropped because of the cost, estimat- ed at $1000 and the apparent lack of income to carry this load. The committee, headed by Jack Yearout, had planned to operate games and conces- sions which would have made the celebration a money- making enterpriye paying its own expenses and leaving a surplus for community proj- ects. Under the City Council's announced policy of no gamb. ling, such games would not be allowed, the committee said. Without this source of income the celebration will do well to be self-supporting. A booster-button popularity contest is planned to support the queen acfivitles can do little or nothing to re- duce. In the more meager of the two budgets directors pro- posed they made the follow- ing cuts : Textbooks provided by the district, $35.000 with the levy, 95000 without; school libra~T, $20,000 with the levy, $5000 without; instruction supplies and expense, about $32,000 with the levy, $8000 without In addition a $12,000 item for contract maintenance such as painting, was stricken from both proposed budgets and improvement of grounds and addition of equipment, which required a total of about $43.- 000 this year, has been cut to a total of $4000 in both preliminary budgets. The textbook cut does not mean that $30,000 less will be spent for books in the district next year. It merely means that the parents will have to provide the books. And most of that $5L~0 library item probably will have to be spent to outfit the new Briar- wood School. THE BOARD glanced at the $124,000 transportation section of the budget but as every local dollar spent there is supplemented with $9 from the state it affords no oppor- tunity h)r making local sav- ings by reducing service and. in fact, had to be upped about $12,000 to provide for the in- creased demands on bus serv- ice next year. State support is estimated at $1,193,000 including $365,- 000 attendance money, $73.000 for bus operation, $259,000 in equalization allotments, $473,- May Magazine o Feature Area Local Bakery Less Time - ;tate and a great Has New Boss the nation will in- daylight savings A baker of 16 years experi- )ril 28 and as a ence in Puget Sound shops Will bask in a sere- has decided that Issaquah is a good place to live and work and has taken over the Issa- quah Bakery.
