MORE SCHOOLS NEEDED
BR AM BLETON WARD SHOWS AN
OVERFLOW OF 130 PUPILS.
Citizens of Bramblcton Ward com?
plain of a lack of school facilities. One
citizen, of that pacific section, speak?
ing to a reporter for the Virginian
Pilot, said that bis child, after spend?
ing three days ut school last week,
was sent home with the statement that
there is no room for her. On Inquiry,
bo learned that 130 more children titan
can he accommodated, have applied for
places in the two schools, Nos. 1 nnd 2.
He said, also, that the overflow Is In
the primary grades. The rooms for
the more advanced pupils are not all
Mr. R. A. Doble, .superintendent,
practically confirmed these statements.
Ho said, In substance, that the School
Board will meet on Tuesday at 1 o'clock
in the afternoon.
Tho Important subject at thnt meet
in" will be the election of four colored
teachers for the Queen street school.
That is the school recent'- allowed
to the use of tho colored children on
the petition of tho preachers and
other prominent colored citizens.
The School Hoard endorsed the peti?
tion of the colored citizens, and the
City Councils appropriated ?l.smi to pay
the expenses of the school.
Then there will be an election of n
teacher tor the Holl street school, in
place of Mrs. William Core, resigned,
and several substitute teachers.
Brnmbleton school. No. l, which was
opened last week, with a seating capa
. Ity of -mo pupils, enrolled 490 pupils
and turned away 75 applicants. That
makes 665 pupils for a normal capacity
Tho excess of pupils nt school No. 2 In

ers for an enrollmeent of -1.000 pupils.

Of the citizens of the ward says:
"if the Local Board of Improvement
will recommend the appropriation of
tho money to employ an additional
teacher and open another school room,
the overflow can he provided for, and
the children of the ward can have the
advantages that the city and the State
are bound to give them.
