THE TULIA PUBLIC Schools
will do a pilot study of a universal
free breakfast program if a survey
of parents indicates sufficient in-
terest in to make it pay for itself
through USDA reimbursements to
the district Ujf
Superintendent of schools-Mike
Vinyard has said that it is neces-
sary to test the program to deter-
mine the number of breakfasts that
each cafeteria needs to serve in
order for the program to pay for
itself. The test period will likely be
20 to 30 school days long.
A survey form will be sent to
parents this week and they are re-
quested to mark the form and re-
turn it to the child's school as soon
as possible. Vinyard said that he
hopes that the program will be vi-
able because research has shown
that children and teenagers who
eat a nutritious breakfast each day
are more alert and attentive and do
better in school.

tour the newly remodeled Dallas
Street Gymnasium and the dress-
ing rooms and classrooms that were

very well and that it should provide
