rata of the above mentioned indebtedness, in so far as the property

SEC. 15. The local maintenance tax and bonding taxes, if
any heretofore voted by the qualified voters of said Coble Common
School District No. 3, in Hockley County, Texas, and now

shall see proper to increase, diminish or abolish the same, as
provided under the General Statutes of this State.
SEC. 16. The title to all property of every kind, and wherever
situated, now owned by and vested in said Coble Common
School District No. 3, in Hockley County, Texas, where the same

School District No. 3, and is hereby vested in the board of trustees

of this Act, in so far as this Act is concerned, are hereby
repealed, and should any section or provision of this Act be declared
by the courts unconstitutional or invalid, such decision

SEC. 21. The fact that the educational facilities of the territory
comprising the Coble Independent School District are
insufficient for want of adequate school buildings to adequately
maintain the schools creates an emergency and an imperative
public necessity that the constitutional rule requiring bills to be
read on three several days in each House be suspended, and said
rule is hereby suspended and also creates an emergency requiring
that this Act shall take effect and be in full force from and
after its passage, and it is so enacted.
