Representative of John Latenser of
Omaha , Claimed to be Able School
Architect , Is Here East Wall Has
Fallen to the Ground ,
[ From Monday's Dally. ]
Members of the board ol education
at the conclusion of tholr meeting yes
terday authorized The News to pub
lish the following paragraph as repre
senting their statement to the people
of the Norfolk cchool district at this
tlmo :
That In all matters pertaining to the
rebuilding of n high school building
the board Is actuated only by the com
mon Interest of the school district.
That In any nctlon they may tnko they
will try to best provide for the pres
ent nnd future needs of the district
| with an economical expenditure of
money. That at this time the board
has not committed Itself cither as to
the rebuilding of the old building eras
as to the erection of a new structure.
That this action will not be taken un
til the board has secured all of the
facts touching the present condition
of the walls standing and the compar
ative cost of putting up a now econom
ically-arranged building , of rebuilding
from the old foundation and of re
building with the use of part of the
present walls. That the board has
been confronted with conflicting state
ments made by local builders nnd
nrchltccts ns to the condition of the
present walls nnd has made arrange
ments to secure an immediate state
ment , covering the whole situation ,
from Architect John Latenser , of Oma
ha. That at this moment the board
does not and can not know In what
way the Interests of the school dis
trict can be best and most economic
ally served.
Latenser Will Give His Opinions to
k Board This Week.
IPfSG. Salisbury of Omaha , represent-
Mug John Latenser of 'Omnhn , who it
is claimed Is the foremost architect
of school buildings in the west , wns In
Norfolk Saturday evening and Sunday
morning inspected the burnt high
school building at the instance of the
school board , who had requested Mr.
Latenser to send a representative to
Norfolk. Mr. Salisbury , who Is"a re
tired contractor , visited the high
school building Sunday morning and
discussed the situation with members
of the board. He did not'make a pub
lic statement but will report his find
ings to Mr. Latenser , who will send a
written report which should reach the
board by next Wednesday.
Information Wanted.
The Information which the members
of the school board expect to obtain
from Mr. Lntenser's report may be
summed up In the following questions :
What Is the condition of the present
building as It stands ? What would be
the cost of erecting a colonial style
building about the size of the present
building ? What salvage from the old
building could be applied to the con
struction of such a building ?
It Is claimed for n colonial style
building that 1 affords much more
tloor space and can be more econom
ically built than a building with an
irregular outline. At the same time
It could be constructed along modern
lines advanced in the last fifteen or
twenty years. It Is also claimed that
the lighting , heating and ventilating
problems could be more easily met in
putting up n new building. The ques
tion that is nskcd Is , can such a build
ing , equally presentable to the eye ,
be built for nearly the same price that
the old building can be rebuilt ? Those
who think that the question can be
answered in the affirmative say that
no small part of the cost of the old
building Is represented In Its tower
nnd numerous angles. On the other
hand against such an answer has been
urged the valuable salvage represent
ed In the foundation nnd standing walls
of the old building.
The special meeting of the board
was held Saturday evening at the of
fice of Mapes & Hazen , All members
were present save Secretary Matrau ,
who had been absent from the city.
Mr. Stltt's Statement.
Architect J. 0. Stltt of Norfolk , who
designed the old high school building ,
was present at the meeting at the re
quest of the board. Mr. Stltt had ex
amined the building and at the request
of the board made a statement as to
its condition. He said that the foun
dation and all exterior walls standing
of the first story were perfectly safe ,
In fact were In good condition. These
walls are sixteen Inches thick. A
portion of the second story walls he
thought were safe , but as a margin
for safety they might be taken off ,
The value of the salvage standing was
considerable but if the material was-
taken down he said the value would
greatly dwindle.
Mr. Stltt Informed the board that
the high tower on the old building
was not in a safe condition. The up
per portion should bo removed. He
also advised the board to have the rub
blsh about the building cleaned \u
and ns much salvage saved as pos
dole. The board voted to follow oul
his suggestions in both Instances. The
big chimney still standing will also b (
I taken down nt once. The board ad
journed to meet Sunday morning with
Latonsor'a representative at the high
school building.
Members of the board state that A.
Morrison , M. L. Ogdcn nnd John B.
Herman , Norfolk building contractors ,
l.uvo examined the high school buildIng -
Ing and claim that the old walls can
uot bo used above the foundation.
Also that II. H. Reynolds , a Norfolk
mason and1 contractor , supports the
statement of Mr. Stltt. J. P. Elsen-
trnut , n Sioux City architect , when In
Norfolk last week declared the stand
ing walls unsafe.
Stiff Breeze Lays Low One Side of
Remains No One Hurt.
The east wall of the cast wing of
the high school building fell before a
stiff breeze yesterday noon , adding an
exclamation point to the objections ut
tered by those opposed to utilizing the
old walls in rebuilding the high school.
The wall fell forward to the east at
1:20 : p. m. , at a tlmo when two or
three children were playing near the
building. No damage to surrounding
property resulted.
Dr. P. H. Salter , a member of the
board of education , nnd C. P. Parish ,
republican nominee for the board , had
stood under the wall not twenty min
utes before It fell. Both had been
making a careful Inspection of the
building and were forced to shudder
at the narrow margin of their escape.
The east wall was taken down by
reason of nn unprotected gable stand
ing exposed to the strong south wind.
J. C. Stltt passed by the building short
ly after the wall went down. He said
that bare walls did not offer great re-
rlstanco to the wind and that unbraced
walls in now buildings were liable to
go down before a strong wind. Mr.
Stltt had previously pronounced the
tower In the building unsafe and ho
said yesterday that the gable in the
west wing might topple over If the
wind continued. Members of the
board of education stationed a special
policeman at the school to warn the
public away from the building.
While the spectacular effect of the
falling wall Is pretty sure to be a fac
tor of influence In the situation , com
petent authorities state that the mere
fact that the wall fell before a strong
wind does not bear one way or the
other on the strength of the standing
walls. It Is" said that the same thing
would have occurred If the roof and
floors of the building had been care
fully removed without a fire. The
leverage that the wind has on a bare
wall Is great. In this connection Mr.
Stltt advises the board to have the
upper portion of the building removed
at once If the lower walls arc to bo
saved. A strong wind In the right di
rection will take down the west gable ,
carrying a considerable part of the
lower wall with it , as was the case
j esterday.

ery From Operation.
Mrs. E. O. Mount was operated on

Pierce , Neb. , March 25. Special to
