School Board Asks
More Class Rooms
The board of education met last even
ing for the purpose of organizing and
tho oaths ot tho two officers were"
filed and tho ofllcors elected. After
x the election of oflkors the board took
up the proposition of school room and
decided that they would have to ask
for mora room on account of the in
creasing number of school children. -
All the schools ae in pm overcrowded
condition and the prospects for ac
commodating the pupils next year are
rather discouraging. This overcrowded
condition is due to the increase in popu
lation of the city and to the number of
studentn that attend from tho rural
communities. 'Also the moving of the
poople to the west part of the city has
crowded Lincoln and Washington
schools very much.
All the rooms nnd basements of all.
the schools are in use and thoy nre all
crowded to capacity. Then, too, the
board is contemplating putting ina
manual training course and a domestic
science department and cannot do so on
account of the lack of room. Both of
these are in great need and would be a
big boost to the school conditions.
The high school is equipped for tho
accommodation of 160 pupils but there
is an enrollment of from 225 to as high
ns 245. Also there is a large class
graduating this year ftom tho Eighth
grade, nearly double the number of last
year, nnd a number of new pupils com
ing in from the rural districts. Under
these conditions it will be a problem
to accommodate the school children next
year without some increase in room.
The following officers were elected
by the board: President, E. T. Tramp,
re-elected; vice-president, Dr. N. Mc
Cabe, in place of Edgar Schiller; secre
tary, A. F. Streitz, re-elected.
The board also voted to put in sand
piles in all the ward schools for the
children to play in. The sand will be
'put inside a cement coping to keep it
from scattering and washing away. A
Toport of Supt. Wilson Tout was alao
submitted to the board. The report
was in regard to the use of the school
grounds and buildings for public use.
