Tile distinction came as a re- sult of a survey conducted throughout the nation this year by Michigan State university, un- der the sponsorship of the U. S. educatien agency. The sur- vey was made to determine the outstanding high school buildings in the nation from a list of schools submitted by the state de- partment of public instruction in each of the 50 states. A survey team headed by Dr. D. R. McLaughlin of the Col- lege of Education, Michigan State University, made a pre-investi- gation of the Mandan school last July with August L. Spiss, school principal. Spiss conducted Dr. McLaughlin. Spiss conducted Dr. school and gave him a detailed account of the school's building program. At the start of the school year Dr. W. L. Neff, superintendent of public schools, and the Man- dan school board were inform- ed that Mandan had been one of the schools selected for the final study. Dr. Neff said the survey will determine the extent to which campus and compact b u i 1 d i n g s, conventional and school-within-school patterns of school organization produce dif- ferent effects upon the people who use such buildings. The date obtained from participat- ing schools will not be identi- fied with any school in the pro- ject reports or publications. Dr. Floyd Parker, staff mem- ber of Michigan State University, will direct the research survey Nov. 7 and 8.

What ore your qualifications for t is position? DAHI~ I have had six years working experience in the legislative branch of state government, and twelve years in the executive branch; have served on many regular and special committees including the special committee on streamlining state government which I head. All of this experience, together with my sincere desire to meet our prob- lems with careful study followed by vigorous action, are essential qual- Ifications in my candidacy.

This has in- valved creative ideas, planning and administering programs. It has also involved establishing effective liaison between federal, state and local gov- erments. During this time I have faced up to the challenge of North Dakota's greatest disaster in the State's history--the disastrous tornado of 1957, which affected life and proper- ty, as disaster coordinator of Fargo's recover)" program.

LASHKOWITZ: A. North Dakota must step up and accelerate the completion of the ~ler- rison Diversion project with emphasis not only on irrigation, but hydro- electric power, chemical and mineral development, fish and wildlife, con- servation, and other related benefits. This program, together with the uses of lignite and our petroleum industry, can help diversify North Dakota's economy by the creation of nsw in- dustry and the expansion of present commerce. Vigorous leadership and co- operation between all levels of govern. ment can help accomplish this g~tl and thereby create a climate for successful industrialization for N. D. B.

This requires a step-up in our highway improvement program on all levels. and elimination of all narrow gauge roads in our state.

NO. 1. REFERRED MEAS~ Congression~l Redistrietlng. This measure was passed by the 1959 Legislature and referred to the voters. It provides that the state shall ,be divided into two congressional districts, each of which is entitled to elect one repre- sentative to the Congress of the United States. The state would be divided into two districts by a line running generally north and south and each district would represent approximately one-half of the state's population. The measure specifiee which counties shall be included in each district. At the present time. our two Representatives are elect- ed at-large and they both repre- sent the citizens of the entire state. If passed, this measure would take effect in 1962. A. The people in favor of this measure feel that senators are elect- ed at-large for the purpose of repreo senting the entire state; and that members of the House could be more efficient if they represented only one district, or approximately one-half of the state's population. B. Those opposing this measure contend that now each citizen in the state is represented by two members in the House of Rpresent- atives, and if this measure passes he will be represented by only one. A "Yes" vote on this measure is a vote for two Congressional Dis- triers in North Dakota. A '2~o" vote is a vote to continue electing two Congressmen at-large as in the past. NO. 2. RE1EERRED I~gASUR~-- RMlroad Brakemn Bill. The 1919 Legislature passed a law which provides that each train over 40 cars in length, of a raft- road which runs more than four trains a day on its road in North Dakota, must have a crew consist- ing of one conductor, one engineer, one fireman, two brakemen and one flagman. The 1959 Legislature amended this law to authorize those trains as de- scribed to operate with 1 brakeman instead of two. It further pro- vides that no person employ- ed as a brakeman on any rail- road in this state on the effect- tive date of this Act shah be dis- charged or lose his employment by reason of the provisions of this Act. However, whenever a brake- man retires, terminates or leav~ his employment, the railroad com- pany need not replace the position so vacated. This amended law was referred to the People to be placed on the Nov- ember 8, 1960 ballot. A. Those who favor the 19~ amendment claim only one brake- man is needed because of the im- prow~d trains now in use. B. Those who do not favor the 1959 amendment say that two brake- men are still essential from a safety ~tandpoint. A "YES" vote on this measure is for ONE BRAKEMAN, in addi- tion to the flagman, who must haw at least one year's experience in train service. A '~NO" vote on this measure is for TWO BRAKEMEN in addition to the qualified flagman. NO. 3, INIT4J~TED CONSTITUTION- AL AMENDMENT---Agricultural Col- lege Name Change. This is a constitutional amendment which, if approved, will change the name of the institution of higher learning at Fargo from "The Agri- cultural College at the City of ~argo in the County of Cass" as it is now' known, to "The North Dakota State University of Agriculture and Applied Science at the City of Fargo, in the TOURISTS BEATEN AND ROBBED BY HIGHWAYMEN--Hun- dreds of law enforcement officers are searching for a pack of highwaymen who posed as policemen, stopped four car. loads of tou~, beat and robbed them of $1,000, and crimo lnany asamflted one of the women in the desert east of El Puo, Tex.
