We must find some means to raise money for the schools without constantly mcreasing the burden of the property owner. It is hoped that more financial assistanee f rom the state or the University can be obtained to ease this burden. Also, property assessments oí the eight outlying townships should be made more equitable with the evaluations placed upon Ann Arbor property. 2) "I feel it is imperative that construction of a fifth junior high school and plans for a third senior high school be started to avoid future problems of overcrowded schools. 3) "I strongly support the Vumili request for the Washtenaw Intermedíate School District. This increase is necessary to continue the work being done I for the special problem children in the área. I 4) "Students should have an I opportunity to meet on a I lar basis with the school board I in order to help advise on I icies which affect them. This I group would strictly be an I visory unit, but could afford I sistanee toward more effective I .board policy decisions."
