Frank Basarab, the board's building supervisor, asked trustees at the last meeting to teke a stand on Crofton's re- quest for over the origi- nal contract. Installation of the school was delayed, it had been previously pointed out at board meetings, by lack of water and power in- stallations at Elkford. These were to be provided by neither the school board nor Crofton. F. G. Crofton, manager of the firm, in a letter to Mr. Basarab last November, "reluctantly agreed" to a continuance of the original roof warranty for the balance of the agreed on two year period. In answer la a question at the meeting, Mr. Basarab said the school has still not been completely finished. Trustee Ted Stafford thereupon moved that the extra be paid less a holdback sufficient to pay for completion of the school. Mr. Basarab asked that the interior of the school be re- painted because of the black finish marks. He estimated cost of repainting at about Percy Pullinger, district super- intendent, said he felt the school "should be brought up to scratch" and favored the painting. Maintenance supervisor R. Craig did not agree. "When tiiat school left Fernie it was an clean as a he said. "All damage was done during the moving of the school." Commenting on a statement that UK school had been sitting out for two months waiting in- stallation of power, newly-elect- ed board chairman Doug Mc- Donald commented, "there are such things as portable power plants. There are ways of getting around such difficul- ties." This was apparently in reference to statements at a previous meeting that the con- tractor could not be expected to have men working on the school with hand tools. A com- mittee of trustees is to examine the school. Sex education In district schools is one subject which school board trustees are to discuss at a special meeting later this month. The matter was discussed following receipt of a letter from Dr. P. J. Wneeldon in forming the board that the East Kootenay Medical Society would be willing to lend its as sistance should any such pro- ject be undertaken. Dr. Wheel don stressed1 that the EKMA realizes sex education in the schools is a highly contention matter and should be carried out on a voluntary basis only. The letter suggested tha members of the Association would give instruction to inter ested teachers at a workshop after, which doctors would fol low up with lectures. Al tendance at the lectures wouli be strictly on a voluntary basis District Schools Superlnten dent P. B. Pullinger said any decision to attend lectures should be strictly a matter o decision by parents of students and the board should insist tha only qualified persons should have anything to do with the matter. He promised the trus tees he would gather informa tion from other districts. On a motion by trustee John Betenia of Galloway, a vote o thanks and round of applause went to retiring chairman Jacl Pidgeon for his work. Mr. Pid goen remains on lie board as trustee.
