TO GIVE DECISION
State School Head, J. L. Matzen, of
Lincoln Takes Lit. Pleasant
Case Under Advisement
rrom Wednesday's Dally.
The hearing that was held yes
terday at the court house in regard
to the changing of the boundary
lines of the proposed Mt. Pleasant
school district has resulted in the
placing of the matter in the hands
of Stale Superintendent J. L. Mat
7en. who now has it under advise
ment. Mr. Matzen left this city to
attend a meet ins; at Albion and the
last of the week will return to Lin
coln and a report of his decision in
the Cass county matter is looked
for within the next week.
The rural districts near Murdock
and Greenwood are awaiting word
from the office of the superintendent
as to his decision and will then call
a special school election for the pur
pose of consolidation of the districts
to give a more compact and higher
graded country school that can offer
all the advantages of the high schools
of the cities.
The three consolidated districts al
ready in force in the county at
Eagle. Nehawka and Alvo have giv
en the greatest of satisfaction and
the advantages 5f this system art
now being appreciated by the resi
dents of these districts.
It is expected that other sections
of the county will probably later
take up the matter of consolidation
as there is a growing demand for it.
