Dr. William Berck, superintendent, in recom- mending the new policy, reported that San Gabriel has been paying 40 per cent over the state norm for health services for the school children. He said that at the rate costs are increasing the rale might go to. 90 per cent over the norm. "We are spending per child per year more tha the average for all the elementary districts in the state." He suggested that-school nurses in the future be on a classified basis rather than certificated. This will reduce costs to per child more than the average and-yet will maintain, the level of service in the district, he said. The reduction wil" amount to per cent for the three salaries paid to the district nurses. Dr. Berck explained that a certificated nurse has to be registered nurse with an A.B. degree plus 30 units. He paid tribute to the district's three nurses who cover the seven elementary schools. Between them they have 30 years' experience. The superintendent reported that Dr. Kenneth Oberholtzer had been added to the team.of experts who are studying the proposal to unify the Alham- bra elementary and high school districts.

Another woman told the board that she thought Ihe pre- sent scheduling system at the high school was excellent and- another woman added "so why .change This seemed to he 'the pre- vailing mood of many at the meeting: The present system is good enough; my child might get hurt if it is changed, so why change it? One man, however, did speak in favor of-making the change "I say let's give.them a vote of confidence and let them go through with this andhewasapplauded.
