FIRST QUESTION CONCERNS USE
OF OLD FOUNDATION.
DISCUSSING A NEW BUILDING
The Board Conferred With Architect
Elsontraut of Sioux City , Who Made
Statements Regarding Cost Disap
proves Old Foundation.
"Tho llrst thing for the board to do
Is to llnil out If a satisfactory high
school building with un assembly room
of the necessary capacity can be built ,
on the old foundation. If a modern
school building with proper lighting
arrungomonts and seating capacity
can bo built on the old foundation , the
man best able to present such plans
to the school board Is your local archi
tect , Mr. Stltt , who Is familiar with
the details of the old building and
who would bo best able to suggest
possible alterations in the old plans. "
This was the udvlco offered to the
Norfolk board of education Saturday
night by Architect J. P. Elsontraut of
Members of the board svoro called
to President Colo's otllce Saturday
evening to consult with Mr. lOlscntruut
regarding the rebuilding of the high
school building destroyed by lire last
mouth. The Sioux City architect did
not think the use of the old founda
tion in rebuilding advisable on account
of the Irregular outline. This Irregu
lar outline among other things ren
dered the lighting problem very d I Hi-
cult , especially as concerned un as
sembly room of the required slue.
The difference between the value of
the old foundation as it stands and Its
value as salvage In an entirely now
building would bo the cost of clean
ing and replacing the stones that com
pose the foundation. This would rep
resent two or throe thousand dollars.
The question for the board to decide
was whether or not this sum would
warrant them In keeping to the lines
of the old foundation.
If the board found It Impossible to
nit up a modern building on the old
foundation , then , Mr. Elsentraut said ,
t would bo free to determine on such
a structure as the situation demanded.
Mr. Elsontraut presented plans for the
now building covering practically the
same ground space as the old struc
ture but constructed along the more
regular lines of classical architecture.
Detailed figures showed the cost of
the building to total as follows : BuildIng -
Ing , $30,191 ; steam heat , $2,800 ;
plumbing , $1,200 ; lighting , $250 ; total
cost , $34,114. Detailed figures placed
the salvage In the old building at $5-
610 , leaving the cash cost of the new
structure at $28,804. This building
could bo erected , ho said , at practical
ly the same cost as the old building ,
with the latter of course having the
udvantngo of the labor represented In
the foundation. Plans for the now
building provided for an assembly
room of 300 capacity and gave cloven
recitation rooms. It would also have
a higher basement as well as advant
ages coming from the more regular
outline which not only makes for more
economical construction but also
makes the lighting problem easier.
Continuing , Mr. Ktsontruut said that
if the board should proceed along the
regular lines of seeking competitive
bids their building could not bo fin
ished before the llrst of the year. If
some linn of architects wore engaged
to furnish plans and acceptable plans
were secured at once the building
might bo ready In October.

Now Look Out For Rheumatism.
The grip has been unusually prova-
during the past winter , and in
many cases Is likely to'be followed by
an attack of muscular rheumatism.
This is the most common variety of
that disease and least dangerous.
There is no swelling of the joints and
the pain is not so excruciating as in
acute or inflammatory rheumatism. It
is sufficiently severe to disable a man ,
however , and every movement increas
es the pain. Keep as quiet as possible
and apply Chamberlain's Pain Balm
freely with a thorough massage , and
you are certain to get quick relief.
