its regular twice a month ing today Wednesday and as of Monday there was only culation as to what action members would take regarding the West-Northwest Side One of the big questions is whether the board will finally reveal the anxiously awaited racial head count for area schools It has been more than a month since the board re- leased the so-called 20 day ures but since then there has been no word regarding the cial breakdown Another burning issue among West Siders is what steps will be taken to relieve the overcrowding of Emmet school At its Oct 23 meeting deferred any action on placing mobile units on tihe Em- met playground and it is hoped that by today board members will have some news as to what will be done at Emmet The mobile units have come under heavy fire from most parents and residents of the area and many of them want Emmet pupils bused to west Side schools under a gram similar to the one for May and Spencer dents during the final semester of the school term The board has shied away from any further busing but exponents of the plan feel it is the only way to ease the tion As an alternative the board has mentioned the ment of which some mobile unit foes claim are only glorified mobiles Much of the objection to the mobiles or is the place where they would be Emmet ground It has been pointed out that the playground should remain as it is as the placement of mobiles would rob children of one of the few play areas left on the West Side There was talk as late as Monday that use of the land and Fulton and Central was being discussed as a possible site for the mobiles or ables This location however is some three blocks south of Em- mett Madison and Among the other big concerns of West-Northwest Siders is the site selection of the new Austin area middle school and con- struction dates for the tion park complexes in the area and East Humboldt community er it is unlikely the board will render any decisions of these matters today Mum Show Salutes
