We do know, however, that some kind of a school im- provement program is going to have to come in the near future. And while the practice of frugality and economy is a fine, but scarce, characteristic these days, there are times, when this practice can be overdone to the point that the purpo is frustrated and the objective is not only defeated, but is most costly. So we sincerely hope that every pro;son in the county eligible to vote Tuesday, will give the school bond issue the serious consideration it deserves. We further hope YOU, THE VOTER, will weigh this matter carefully not only from the standpoint of what will happen if the school bond passes, but also from the angle of what will happen if it does not pass.

E.C.W. Meeting Postponed GO TO CHURCH SUNDAY The E.C.W. of the Church of portant step forward in educat- ion. The old two and three class room elementary schools will be replaced by new structures which will allow every child in Jeffer- son County an equal opportunity in education. The new county high school will give every stu- dent the opportunity to get the best possible education Jefferson County can provide. This is not possible under the present sys. tern with limited space and cour- ses in the three sel ara e high schools. The future of education - the future of Jefferson County - is in the hands of thevoters on Nov. ember 5th. A "YES" vote on the School Bond is a vote for pro- gress. For the sake of your chfl. dren, for the future of our cou. nty, I urge and plead wRh each and every person to vote "YES" on the School Bond. With sincere thanks and appre ciation ,to this Imper, its staff and to you who have read this letter, I am. Yours truly, Shirley M. Hunt Charles Town High School Charles Town, W. Va. October 30, 1968 Mr. Max Brown Spirit of Jefferson Advocate Charles Town, W Va. Dear Mr. Brown: We, the members of the Stud- ent Council of Charles Town High School, urge everyone in Jeffer- son County to Vote YES on Nov- ember 5 for the School Bond Levy. We feel that new schools must for any good school and of the computerized system which is absolutely necessary fbr any school to be run smoothly, we hit a note of sadness as we rea- lize that all the old traditions and rivalries we once took for grant- ed will die. All the prestige that comes only through years of good and hard times must be pushed aside to make room for comput- ers and IBM cards and any pres- tige we then gain can be given a number, like the students, and filed away. We must not let silly emotions, which are only responsible for our whole state of being, stand in the way of progress.' So what if our school days which are sup- posed to be the happiest days of of our lives turn out to be the most miserable? At least we can say we graduated from a spank- ing new high school with not one square room to its name. I can't understand why an old high school is considered so ter- rible. Colleges thrive on their age and fight over which shall hold the title of being the old- est. Colleges have square rooms and they're proud of them. Well, I suppose this monstros- ity will b~come a reality and all the happy voters will have their way but the voters won't have to go to school there. COUNTY CITIZEN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION The U. S.
