I a I Ski AND “SEVENTEEN” MAGAZINE for Ryan School ter ain received fur the purchase of portable school Fight By Mary Hello RYAN — Ryan residents have united to fight what many of them feel is another blow to the town since last week’s tornado — the possible loss of their elenrfentary grade school “If we lose our school, it’s like a nail in a coffin,” said the Rev. Matthew Beelner, pastor of St. Patrick’s church “I don’t think the tornado damage should he the deciding factor as to what happens to the school.” The West Delaware school board met with over 2(H) parents and concerned Ryan area citizens at a sjK*cial meeting Monday night to determine wha! action should bt' taken since Ryan’s elementary school was destroyed in the tornado Pass Motion The board unanimously passed a motion made by Wilbur Kehrli to “take the Ryan pupils into the West Delaware schools in Manchester and get them started next Monday and then to investigate the possibility of getting portables at Ryan, subject to available finances.” Mayor Vincent Keegan had earlier discussed the possibility of using any federal disas- Carl L. Cress, Troy Mills, Is Drowning Victim PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, Wis. —-Carl L. Cress, 53, Troy Mills, Iowa, foreman of the Linn county road department, drowned Sunday after he fell from his boat and was struck twice by the craft. Authorities said Cress’ body w as recovered from I .ake Tilmont near the Mississippi river about six miles north of Prairie du Chien. Cress reportedly had been fishing with his wife. He let his wife out of the boat and apparently fell out when he restarted the motor Another group of fishermen saw his boat running unattended, then noticed Cress in the water. They were unable to get to him. however, because of the uncontrolled Cress boat. Their boat was struck twice WWW buildings to house the grade school students Many of tho Ryan residents expressed the fear to the board that "if our kids go to Manchester, we will never get them back.” William Johnson, board president, had explained that a large two-story brick structure used for religious instruction, offered to the West Delaware school system by St. Patrick’s church, had been inspected Monday af-ternooon and did not meet the state fire marshal’s regulations because of certain fire hazards. Specifications These are, he said, hallways I hat do not meet width specifications and doors that open to the interior of the building instead of the exterior The building is also a designated civil defense shelter , according to Father Beelner, and was built in 1950 containing eight classrooms with three of them 17 by IO feet, an audio-visual room, a leacher lounge and lavatories on both floors. As far as lunchroom facilities were concerned. Father Beelner said St Patrick’s gymnasium has all the necessary equipment in the kitchen to handle up to 5IHI students. Father Beelner had hoped the structure would be approved on a temporary basis and even thought something could have been worked out on a permanent basis A large white frame building with two-classroom facilities offered by the Lutheran church also was not approved by I ho state fire marshal’s office, said Johnson, ” because of I he* insulating type of ceiling and paneled walls which arc* highly inflammable. Session Prior to the actual school board meeting, Ryan farmer James Broghammcr conduc ted a session to got input from area residents as to their feeling al>out the school situation. Don Mangold of Ryan said, “Different Manchester business men have approached me and said, “Whatever you do keep that school down there by all means " “Why can’t they rebuild," asked Bill Brummy, 4fi, Ryan. "They have $250.(HH) in an emergency fund plus their insurance This looks like an emergency to me." Crowding John Murphy, a career serviceman who was given a leave of absence to visit his family in Ryan because of the tornado, said he was against busing children to Manchester because of the early morning time factor and doesn’t "favor crowded classrooms in j Manchester.” Six portables which tho J board figures would Im* ne'rv sary for the IMI students in I he* kindergarten through fourth grades would cost (he- district IKM) (HH), or the distric t could lease them for $50 (MHI annually for throe years “I don’t think we can promise you a brand new school," said Kehrli “But we c an lease portables without a vote* of the sc hool district.” According to Supt William Raisch, insurance money recovered from the1 disaster would go to the* West Delaware sc hool distric t and a new school in Ryan would require a bond issue* and (he* approval of the* majority of the* veilers in t he* school distric t Iowa Legislator’s Son Is Missing GREENE (AP)—State* Sen Clifford Burroughs (R-Greene) says he has been notified his son was aboard a cargo plane* reported missing over l^i Paz, Bolivia He said his family was told Monday the C141 cargo c raft with seven crewmen aboard was reported missing after it departed Sunday for I .a Paz from Howard air force base in the Canal Zone.
