SEC. 10. Notices of such elections specifying all propositions
to be submitted and the forms of ballots to be used, specifving
the time and place or places for holding such election and
containing such other matter usual to notices of school elections
shall be given by the president or secretary of the board of trustees
of the Silsbee Independent School District as herein and
hereby created, by posting three copies thereof in three public
places in said district, such notices to be posted not less than
three weeks prior to the date of such election. Such election shall
be held and returns made as in the case of other independent
school district elections, and the results being determined by
the board of trustees as in the case of other independent school
district elections, and such order as may be usual and necessary
under the General Laws of this State in regards to such elections
shall be entered for the purpose of carrying into effect the results
of such election.
SEC. 11. This law shall be cumulative of all other General
Laws of this State on the subject of independent school districts,
not in conflict herewith, and where not otherwise provided herein,
such General Law shall apply; but in case of such conflict
with such General Laws, the provisions of this Act shall govern;
and should any section or provision of this Act be by the courts
declared invalid of unconstitutional, such decision shall not impair
any of the remaining sections or provisions of this Act.
SEC. 12. The fact that much of the territory included within
the independent school district herein and hereby created is
without adequate school facilities, or funds to provide for same,
and the fact that the adding of new and additional territory to
th.e said district as herein and hereby created will greatly aid
in the present necessity for funds with which to maintain said
schools in said district, and the fact that the production of more
funds will greatly add to the efficiency of the schools in said district,
creates an emergency and an imperative public necessity
that the constitutional rule requiring bills to be read ox three
several days be suspended, and the same is hereby suspended,
and this Act shall take effect and be in force from and after its
passage, and it is so enacted.
