The Ann Arbor Board of EduIcation last night moved one step Icloser to setting a $4.9 million lbonding issue for school construction June 9 by voting to legally pre-qualify the.proposed bond issue. Pre-qualification is a legal technicality which means that [the state will financially back ithe bonds. The trustees probably will vote to put the bond issue on the June ballot within a few weeks. The bond issua would provide funds for construction of t h e city's fifth junior high school, to be located at Nixon and Bluett Rds. School Supt. W. Scott Westerman Jr. said last night the estimated cost of the building will be $4,950,000 - an increase of $51,000 over an estímate given three weeks ago. The proposed fifth junior high will be nearly a replica of Scarlett Junior High. Funds to build the new junior high were requested in a $15.5 million bond issue in January, 1968, and again last December in a three-part, $9.5 million bond issue. Both issues were soundly defeated. Only property owners would be able to vote on the $4.9 million bond issue - which will be the only bonding item on the ballot.
