The plan to increase the Lake Ronkonkoma Board of Education from three to five members was de- feated , and Frank J. Mooney was re-elected trustee for a three-year term in close contests that featured the annual meeting of the Lake Ron- konkoma school district last night. The meeting, held in the base- ment of the school on Hawkins avenue , with Morris M. Hawkins presiding, brought one of the larg- - est turnouts in the history of the district and lasted about two and a half hours. The five-man-board proposition was defeated by a vote of 109-103. The trusteeship election , in \which Mr. Mooney was opposed for re-elec- tion by Raymond E. Duffield , brought, a vote of 111-93 in favor of the for- mer. Two years ago , when the same two men were nominated for a-trus- teeship vacancy, the ' vote was Moon- ey 93 , Duffield 00. The meeting also adopted a 1040-1 gross budget of $17 , 032 , which re- presents a decrease of a \bout $1 , 300 under that adopted a year ago , to- talling $19 , 257. One of the matters that consumed much time in the meeting was the voting on the proposal to include $400 in. the new budget for special music teaching. This work had been ' done during the past two years by Mrs. Leonora Felber. This proposal was defeated , 78-28. (Continued on page 2) Town Total 31 , 936 Is Up 13 p.c.
