Tatum Air Conditioning of Corsicana, whose bid of $19,804 was the lowest of three bids submitted, received the con- tracts. Another firm bidding on the two schools was that of Parnell's of Athens with a total bid of $24,661. The specifica- tions called for air conditioning only, using present heating fa- cilities with modifications to the existing heating motors at the Malakoff Junior High. The Par- nell bid seemingly offered more in the way of service warranty and conveniences such as a master control panel and re- building of electrical service, ducts, etc. After consideration, the board felt these features were not sufficient to offset the some $4,857.00 difference in the two bids. Lone Star bid on the Malakoff Junior High building only at a total cost of $6,820.60 with an alternate recommendation which exceeded that figure. The Lone Star bid, presented by Pete Dodson of Malakoff and the Athens manager feat- ured local 24 hour service and economy of operation. The plan recommended guaranteed a specific cooling capacity. Rex King motioned to accept the bid and Mrs. L. O. Robert- son gave the second with the board responding unanimously to award the contract to Tatum. Superintendent James Shef- field pointed out the urgency of getting the air conditioning pro- gram underway in order to get lhe porject completed before the opening of school this fall. Sheffield advised the board that the schools architects had completed working plans for the new cafeteria to be erected at the elementary school and bids for the projejct would be award- "Only when there is a strong free press with an unfailing sense of responsibility can truth flourish and man grow to his maximum capacity", said Dwight D. Eisenhower. 2. Herbert Hoover staid, "Absolute freedom of the press to discuss public questions is a foundation stone of American liberty." " the freedom of the press is one of the great bulwarks of liberty and can never be restrained but by despotic government", James Mason said. the game but also managed to get their share of hits at bat to either score or abet their teammates in scoring. ed August 8. The board voted to publish advertisements for bids two consecutive weeks prior to the opening of the bids. It was agreed the advertise- ments would be published in the Malakoff News, Corsicana Daily Sun and Tyler Courier Times. A deposit of $100 per set of plans pending return of the same will be required of each contractor. The cafeteria of modern brick design will be separate from the existng elementary school with outside dimensions of 55 feet by 65.8 feet. In other action, the board ac- cepted the resignation of Janie Bankston, second grade instruc- tor and the first assistant coach and biology teacher, Jimmy Loflin. The News Editor, invited to the session, was advised that legal action would not be neces- sary in order to attend any and all future school board meet- ings and that the newspaper was invited to all sessions by Superintendent Sheffield. The meeting, cordial in every respect, was attended by Rex King, Bill Bradshaw, rs. L. O. Roberts(m, John Bumgardner, Lewis Vieregge, the superinten- dent and editor. Are Winners Sir Winston Churchill had this to say, "A frett ,press is the mmleepntg guardian of every other right that freemen prize; it is the most dangerous foe of 'tyranny . . . Under dictatorship, the press is bound to languish and the loud speaker and the film to be- come more important. But where free institutions are Indigenous to the soil and men have the habit of liberty, k the press will continue to be the Fourth Estate, the vigilant guardian of the right of the ordinary citizen". In Pee Wee When the final game of the season was over last Friday night for the area Pee Wee Leagues, the Pirates of Mala- koff emerged as the League winners. They chalked up a re- cord of nine wins and one loss during the season. The Pirates place in the sun was not easily reached, how- ever, as the lead see-sawed from one team to the other and the winner was not declar- ed until the Braves defeated the contending Giants on Fri- day night. The power on the mound for the win- ning Pee Wee League Pirates were Bryan Sheffield, Larry Graves and Eddie Arthu These three boys not only controlled the pitching end of Revival Thomas Jefferson said it this way. "When the press is free and every man able to read-all is safe".

The Giants loss put them in second place in the league with eight wins and two losses; the Braves came in third; Cardi- pals, fourth; Trinidad, fifth and Cross Roads, sixth. The victorious Pirates team was ably coached by Ed Arthus, Homer Ray Trimble and Mar- cus Jordan, three men who de- voted much time and energy to help mold the lives of boys who will some day become fine up- standing men. The Pirate player roster in- cludes Kenneth Graham, Eddie Arthus, Bill MuUins, Wesley Holt, Bryan Sheffield, Larry Graves, Barry Carson, Timmy Trimble, Donny Perkins, Jay Johnson and Roy Roberson. Eddie Arthus, Larry Graves and Bryan Sheffield shared honors as pitchers for the team. With the closing of the reg- ular season, two All Star teams have been formed of players from the various Pee Wee teams. Players from the first, third and fifth place winners were placed on one team with the second team composed of boys from the second, fourth and sixth place winners. A Round Robin of the best two out of three games was opened on Monday night of this week. The All Star team of the second, fourth and sixth win- ning boys raked up 14 points while the first, third and fifth winners were collecting 4. The second All Star game was play- ed Tuesday evening and those composing the first, third and fifth winning All Star team bested their opponents by 17 to 2. The date of the third and final game will be announced later. And so it is that the nestspaper has been praised Mankin "Nets and criticized for centuries.
