It is for the pur- pose of getting an expression of the voters of Union High School Dis- trict, No. a, before a third election to vote, on bonds for a new high school and the purchase of ade- quate grounds, is called. The people of the district can hardly expect the Hoard of Trustees to spend their time, in the interest of the school and have their efforts meet with defeat.
