The letter, scheduled to be placed in the mails today, along with a post card ballot, follows: Arcadia, Calif>---- January 16, 1936 j Dear Citizen: It is the policy of the board to keep the community informed through various channels about its schools, particularly regarding those matters involving expenditures for buildings and the reasons therefor. The Arcadia City Schools have been experiencing an unusual increase in enrollment since the opening of school last September. The enrollment has increased from 762 to 840 pupils at the present time. This increase has been steady and substantial, a type that is indicative of the growth of our community. All classrooms are now in use. To • house the pupils gained since last September requires the equivalent of two classrooms. Over half of the classes have heavy enrollments ranging from 35 to 56 pupils. From these figures one can readily recognize the need for more classrooms and the immediate problem of th board to provide these facilities at a minimum cost to the district. At the present time the district has on hand unsold bonds in the amount of $10,000. This amount in bonds was saved by the board as a result of a federal contribution in free labor in the reconstruction of First avenue school. These bonds could now be sold and this amount, together with a free gift in labor and materials from the federal government, could be used to build additional classrooms. The federal government is now making very liberal contributions in labor and materials for projects of Arcadia Council Of Scouters To Convene In City Hall On Monday, Jan. 27 Earl Kingston, chairman of the Arcadia Council, Boy Scouts of America, today announced the January meeting of this organiza-j tion will be held in the Chamber of Commerce offices of the city hall on Monday evening, January 27.
