Dr. Hoy Fenner, who was ap- pointed Sept. 12, 1B63, to fill the ttnexpired term of Marvin Thompson, was elected vice- president.

The official canvass of the votes of Saturday's election duplicated the unofficial results. Bergeron, speaking for the board, gave a special vote of thanks and appreciation to President Larry Dio, retiring member, for his dedicated serv- ices to the interests of the school district during his term in office.

Boyd offered the suggestion ginning at 2 p.m. Saturday. Contributors should have their Goodwill bags on the porch by then so Boy Scouts and Ex- plorers, assisted by the Victo- ria Jaycees, can collect them.
