Th e annual election of members of the school board occurs next Monday, at which successors to Trustees Sheehan, Bach and Scott will be elected. They will undoubtedly be renorninated and we have heard of no definite move to put any other ticket in the field. At the taxpayer's meeting, the board will ask that $28,000 be raised for the coming year. This is $1,000 less than was raised last year, and the board expect to keep the schools up to the present high grade with $1,000 less taxes, owing to an expected increase in the amount of foreign tuition. The expenses last year were $48,465.99. The estimated expenses for the coming year are $44,955.66. and the receipts outside of the taxes are estimated at $16,000. Of course the largest item in the estimated expense is $30,250 for teachers' salaries and this could not be lowered without detriment to the schools of which Ann Arbor is so justly proud. The bonds and interest require $4,810. Gas will cost $250, janitors $1,700, fuel $2,000, water $200, sewers $1,100 and repairs $2,000. The district has a debt at present of $20,000, caused by the erection of the additioH to the high school.
