In the event that such an emergency is found to exist said board may authorize by special order entered and signed upon the record, the trustee to borrow a sum of money to be named sufficient to meet such emergency; and at the next annual session of the board a levy shall be made to the credit of the fund for which such expenditure is made to cover and pay the debt so created : Provided, however, That if at any annual or special meeting of said board it shall be found indispensably necessary to provide for the construction of a school building, the cost of which building or the proportionate cost thereof if the same be a joint graded high school building will be in excess of the sum available therefor out of any annual levy, then in that event, such board may authorize such trustee to issue township warrants or bonds to pay for such building, or the proportionate cost thereof, such warrants or bonds to run for a period of not exceeding fifteen (15) years; and to bear not exceeding six per centum per annum, and to be sold for not less than par; the township trustee, before issuing such warrants or bonds, shall advertise that bonds are to be sold in not less than one issue a week for three
