The budget was balanced through a revision of estimated re- venue upward and reduction in ex- penditure requests from various departments. The preliminary budget listed estimated receipts of $377,664.14 and expenditm'e requests of $396,- 198.47. The increase ill estimated re- ceipts came through more money from tax levy with conlpletion of the assessment rolls by the asses- sor's office and the addition of $2,000 in matching money from the state for the Juvenile Proba- tion office. The biggest increase was noted in the Sheriff's office budget which is up $9,903 from this year. The additional money is taken up in funds for an additional deputy and increases ill salary for em- ployees of the department. BUDGETS FOR other depart- ments were at about the same figure as in the preliminary bud- get, reflecting slight increases in most over the 1964 budgets. The budget provides salary in- crcases of from $10 to $15 a month for most of the employees in the court house. A county road department bud- get of $684,440 was approved, the budget provides $54,750 for over- head and administration, $376,440 for maintenance and $253,250 for construction. It was pointed out at. the bud- get hearing that the county con- tribution to the Civil Defense bud- get $10,800 would be $5,000, with the rest coming in state and fed- eral matching funds. It was also pointed out that the county contributes $4,000 to the County F,air budget of $14,510, with the rest coming from state funds and receipts frdm the fair. The budget hearing was attend- ed by various county elected of- ficials, intm'ested in the budget for' their departments.

It was in these two areas that lr was most involved during the montl I spent in Holly Springs, Miss. Original plans called for the freedom schools to'accomodate on- ly high school age youngsters and adults. With response from all age groups, and vohmteer "teachers" available, the prgram was expand- ded to inchlde all ages. In Holly Springs, where two houses had been leased for the project's office Visitors, visitors, visitors, some 11,100 of then] inspected the new Washington Corrections Center here during the open house last week, The crowds began looking over the faciIities right after the dedi- cation ceremony Sept. 29 and con- tinued through the rest of the week during the "open house" which concluded Smlday. Sunday was the biggest day, with 6,037 persons signing the guest registers according to Supt. Ernest Timpani. A STEADY stream of cars pour- ed into the new institution Sunday afternoon, overflowing the park- ing lots at the administration buil- ding end of the compound and sending some down to the other end to park in parking areas near the power plant and warehouse. ' Timpani said the crowds con- ducted themselves well and that despite the large numbers, there was no breakage and little diffi- culty. He said he received a lot of com- ments on the new facility, all of then] favorable, Timpani said the first inmates who will be transfem'ed here from Monroe and Walla Walla are being selected now and will be probably the end of this month or the first of next month. There is still some staff tn~in- iffg to be done, he said and it will take some time to get the facili- ties cleaned up and chccked out after the ()pen hotlse.

This sketch is based upon the studies done s,o far by the architectural firm of Maloney, Herrington, Freesz and Luna, h soring of 1963 by the A,I.A,, of Seattle. The Maloney firm was retained in t c joint boards of Directors of the Clinic H,ospital and the Shelton G~ncral Hos- pital.

This type of plan facilitates expansion on both the horizontal level and the verticle level. V,oters in th' Nov. 3 general election will de- cide whether or not the Hospital District will bc formed. A bond issue to raise funds for a new hospital would be ;put to the ,~oters at a later date. and freedom school, a. g~'oup ef about 100 gathered by 8 a.m. each morning to begin a day of classes. For prc-school aged children the program consisted mainly of stoW telling and games. Those of elementary scllool age were given lessons in spelling, arithmetic and reading. High school youngsters availed then]- selves of a program desigmed to give them all understanding of Ne- gro history. It was most interest- ing for them to learn about some of the Negroes who have become famous, especially since such sub- jccts are never discussed in their schools. Daring the afternoons a wide wlriety of classes were of- fered including automobile mech- anics, French, guitar lessons, art and creative writing. The group invoh,ed in the latter cla~s took on the task of constructing and presenting a play based on the death of Negro civil rights leader, Medgar Evers. They presented this on several occasions and, notably~ before thc high school mock state political conventiml, which was at- tended by high school youngsters especially proud of one 70-year-old man who was eager to lean~ th(: workings of our govenlment and prepare for taking [he voter reg- istration test..
