"Denial ■ of school aid funds to.
Stonewall county schools would a-
mount irj fH2,000 loss", said Superin-
tendent Tnainmell, "if this help i fi-
nnlly denied, as it now appc :r -at
it might o^," in a speech at :. on
Eighteen of the 26 schools in the
county receive state, aid funds and'
would be effected if these funds are
not forthcoming. It was further ex-
plained by Supt. Trammell that there
arc four classifications of the suite
aid funds. They are:
1. Supplementary aid, which i.« th<-
one most of us know of and think of
when we think of state aid. Eighteen
of the schools receive this class of aid
2. High school tuition aid; About
10 to 12 districts of Stonewall coun-
ty receive funds from this source.
3. Consolidation aid, which is given
only to consolidated schools. As per-
innnt, Swettjion and Peacock receive
help from this source.
4. Transportation aid, which isj
used by consolidated .schools to help j
defray cost of running "kid" wagons
Asperipont, Swenson and Peacock re-
ceive this sort of aid.
It was stated that all the above
funds were involved in the recent lit-
Here is how the Aspermont school
is helped by state aid funds: $600 for
consolidation, $300 for transportation,
$850 for supplementary aid, and a-
bout $360 for high school tuition,
making a total of approximately $2,-
100 from local tax money and $0,105
from stat<. and county apportionment
