I understand It was to be completed a year ago and It Isn't yd. The students and teachers have complained with no results. What can be done? A. This is under study right row by a citizens committee. If the committee recom- mends air conditioning (and It's VERY likely that they will) then it will be submitted to the school board and it will take a bond issue to raise Ihe money for it. Several other schools will be included in Ihe recommendation junior highs (except Lincoln which is loo old, the windows would have to be changed) and some ol the elementary schools such as Fannin, Crockett and Bowie.
