the S. B. lines of Leagues Nos. 152 Randall County School land

SEC. 2. That said Bledsoe Independent School District shall
have and exercise and it is hereby vested with all the rights,
powers, privileges and duties of a town or village incorporated
under the General Laws of the State for free school purposes
only and the board of trustees of said district shall have and
exercise and is hereby vested and charged with all the rights,
powers, privileges and duties conferred and imposed by the General
Laws of this State, now in force or hereinafter enacted, upon
the trustees of independent school districts.
SEC. 3. The management and control of the public free
schools in said Bledsoe Independent School District is hereby
vested in a board of trustees which board shall be composed of
five persons, resident citizens and qualified voters within said
district, who shall be elected and shall qualify as provided by the
General Law; provided however, that upon this Act becoming
effective the County Judge of Cochran County shall appoint five
persons who shall serve as trustees of said district until the date
fixed by General Law for the election of trustees for independent
School districts. The term of office of the five trustees
chosen at said election as provided by General Law shall be
divided into two classes and the members shall draw for the
different classes, and the three persons drawing Nos. 1, 2 and
3 shall serve for one year; that is, until the next succeeding
regular election of trustees of independent school districts, and
until their successors shall have been duly elected and qualified;
and the two members drawing the numbers 4 and 5 shall serve
for two years from the date of their election; that is, until the
second succeeding regular election of trustees of independent
school districts, and until their successors shall have been duly
elected and qualified; and regularly thereafter each year three
trustees and two trustees shall be elected for a term of two
years to succeed the trustees whose terms shall at that time expire.
SEC. 4. The fact that the educational facilities of the territory
within the Bledsoe Independent School District are insufficient
for lack of adequate school buildings and insufficient
funds to provide school buildings and 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 be suspended and that this Act take effect and be
in force from and after its passage, and it is so enacted.
