IMPROVEMENTS AT OPERA HOUSZ
>I;iny That Are Needed pnd Should be j
Made.?Newberry Should Hare
l'p to Date House.
The Herald and News lias from
time to time spoken of certain improvements
that were needed and :
that should be made at the opera |
house. A nice and modern and up
to date opera house, like a modern j
and up to date hotel, is worth a whole
lot. to any community. wnen me
\"ew berry opera house was built it
was up to date, "but there have been
many changes in 30 years. The Newberry
opera house was built a little
more than 30 years ago, and at that
time it was as good as any building of'
its kind in the State.
There was never sufficient arrangement
for emptying the building in
^ase of fire or panic of any kind. The
Herald and News has called attention
:o this many times. Fortunately there
las been no fire or panic to test the
ibility of getting a large crowd out j

but if anything ever should oc:ur
it would be found impossible to
;et the people out without serious
oss of life. Some years ago a sepa-ate
exit for the gallery'was built,
.vhich helped very much.
There are some other improvements
A-hich should be made and could be
nade with very little expense and it
tvould add greatly to the comfort and
ionvenience and looks of the building.
Mr. Wells, the lessee has offered to
nake some of tf.ie improvements and
3ay for the work, of course, to be reimbursed
out of the rent of the buildng.
He should be encouraged in his
efforts to give the peoi>ie of the town
i high class of entertainment, and in
:rder to do this to the best advantage
:he opera house should be modern
md up to date in its appointments.
Jhere has been some talk of put:ing/the
auditorium on the ground
ioor and moving the offices and poice
court room up stairs. 'That would !
be a great improvement, and tllien |
:here would be no danger about ar- j
-anging to empty the house in case of j
ire or panic from other cause. That |
would also permit the building of a j

'oof. It would have many other advantages
and would be a great thing
if the city could see its way clear to
nake this change. Of course this
vould cost a considerable sum, but
ive would then have a modern and up
;o date auditorium.
If" this is not done the floor in "Oile
present auditorium could be changed
>o that the deess circle would be on
:he same level with the pit and in Uiis j
svay the people could get in and out |
with a great deal more ease and comfort.
This change could be made
ft'ith very little cost and would add !
neatly to the comfort of the building;
md also mate it easier to get out of
:be building. Have the entire floor
)f the auditorium on the same level.
Another thing that could and should
