At an adjourned meeting of the
School Board yesterday the following
members were present: Messrs.
Whltehead, president; Taylor, secre?
tary; McCurdey, Randolph, R?ffln,
East, Mlnter, Davis, Morris, Parrolt,
Pinkerton and It. A. Dobie. superinten?
dent.
The first business of the meeting was
the report of Superintendent Dobie on
the condition of the schools, as fol?
lows:
Norfolk, Va.. Oct. 9th, 1900.
To the Honorable School Board, City of
Norfolk.
Gentlemen: I bog leave to call your
attention to the enrollment and capa?
city of the several school buildings of
the city, from which you will note the
enrollment Is largely In excess, of our
seating capacity, besides iu Bramble
ton Ward there are several hundred
Children who are unable to attend the
school on account of the want of facili?
ties to take care of them.
Boush Street School hits S rooms,
sealing capacity of 400, which is com?
fortably well filled. All applicants
there have been provided for.
Holt Street School has S rooms, seat?
ing capacity of 400. The enrollment
there being in excess of the seating ca?
pacity, I have found It necessary to
transfer some of the scholars over to
the Boush Street School. In the first
primary we have ino enrolled. Some
few scholars in that grade unprovided
for.
Charlotte Street School, 10 rooms,
seating capacity r.on. We have G00 schol?
ars. Some few scholars in the lower
grades unprovided for.
Fourth Ward School. S rooms, G of
which have been opened, settling capa?
city 300, comfortably well filled; 2'j;i en?
rolled.
Atlantic City School?G rooms. 300
seats, enrollment 337.
Bramhleton No. 1?8 rooms, seating
capacity 400, enrolled 4!>0; some 75 ap?
plicants unprovided for. G
Bramhleton No. 2? 8 rooms, seating
rapacity :{7L', enrolled 395; some 70
scholars unprovided for.
Cumberland Street Colored School?
10 rooms, seating capacity 500, enroll?
ment 7:'."'.
Atlantic City Colored School?1 room,
enrollment 71.
By the adoption of two periods In the
first primary we have been able to
take care of 100 scholars in 50 seats by
giving the children in this grade pe- !
rlods of two hours and a half and then
dismissing them and taking In 50
more. This, however, can he done only
in I he lowest grade, sis It Is neces?
sary In the other grades to do the
work satisfactorily to give them the
full period. The Brambleton schools
nre crowded to overflowing, with some
200 or 300 scholars who are un/tble to
secure scats.
i attended a meeting of the Local
Board of the Brambleton ward some
twelve months ago and called their at?
tention to the existing conditions, and
urged them to arrange at least four
additional rooms at once. The board
acted upon the matter to the extent of
asking an appropriation from the
Councils of $-0.000, which was second
for the purpose of constructing four
school rooms and making Improve?
ments to the heating, lighting and
.sanitation of Schools Nos. 1 und 2.
These improvements In heating, light?
ing and sanitation have been made to
buildings Nos. l and 2 at a cost of some
$10,..' but 1 regret to say the addi?
tional school rooms have not been
built, although 1 endeavored to impress
on the committee the urgent necessity
bf having them completed before the
beginning of the school term, As you
are doubtless await-, the Improvements
to Brambleton No. 1 were not com?
pleted In time for the opening of the
schools at the beginning of the session.
It was opened on the Sth, although the
heating arrangements are not yet fully
completed and tested. The Local Hoard
of Brambleton Ward had plans drawn
for the four additional rooms to No. 2
building, ami received bids for same,
the bids being some $15,000; or $5,000 In
excess of the amount in hand. The
matter. 1 understand, remains at a
standstill for the present;
? The impfeH cm nt-i-to-BrWmbletOn
Schools No. I and 2 have very mate?
rially added to the comfort and con?
venience of the scholars In these two
schools, and have added one additional
school room to building No. 1.
These conditions show the urgent
necessity for four to six additional
school rooms in Brambleton Ward at
once, and I trust the Local Board will
promptly take steps to add the addi?
tional facilities necessary for the ac?
commodation of the children, whose
parents are daily applying to me to
know why they cannot secure seals in
ihe school.
They also show the necessity of an?
other school building for Hie accom?
modation of the boys of the First.
s.i d ami Thud Wards' all of whom
are now enrolled in the Charlotte
street school. As we have a large lot
on Dank street adjoining the Charlotte
street building, I respectfully recom?
mend that n bulldirrg of six to eight
rooms be constructed on this lot. the
location being central and convenient
for boys nl the First, Second and
Third Wnrds. We have sixteen rooms
for Ihe girls of these wnrds, and only
ten for the boys.
I trust it will be your pleasure to
give this matter your early attention,
so that these accommodations may be
completed before the beginning of an?
other session.
The School Trustees and Local
Board of the Atlantic City Ward have
already purchased very desirable lots
for the local of another school iu
that ward, and have also taken steps
to secure an appropriation of $25,000
for the en n il, tlon of another build?
ing In that ward.
Very rosj.(fully submitted,
RICHARD A. DORIE?
S'.] pc rin tendon t Schools.
Mr. Dobic's report was received and
filed, and that part in reference to a
te w building was refe.red to the Build?
ing Committee of the hoard.
Mr. Doblo . xplnined that at the pres?
ent moment, by doubling some of the
schools, nearly all of the pupils iu the
old wards are provided for, but he
thought that provision should he made
for the fqlurc.
A resolution was adopted recom?
mending tlie opening at once of the
new room in Brambleton building No.
1. and authorizing the superintendent
to employ a substitute teacher in that
room, provided the Local Board of thai
Ward will pay her salary. (If Ibis room
Is opened Miss Outtcn will.. bo the
teacher.)
A resolution wns also adopted urging
the Local Hoard of Brninbleton "Ward,
In view of the crowded condition of the
schools In that section, and of the
nuplls who aru unprovided for, to con?
struct the annex to buildtg No. 2 us
soon as possible.
On motion, Superintendent Dohle was
empowered to open one or two rooms
in the Fourth Ward building in order
to relievo the pressure In the schools of
the pf'd wards of the city?the Superin?
tendent to<. confer with the Committee
on Teachers and Text Hooks and put
in substitute teachers without refer?
ence of the matter to the board.
Mr. Itufhn said the School Board
should not go to the Councils for
money till It was absolutely needed.
lie advocated districting the city so
that there should be a proper quota for
each school.
He said that such a plan would pre?
vent any discrimination against the
Fourth Ward school. There is no rea?
son why pupils should not attend that
school:
Mr. East moved that the two rooms
of the Fourth Ward school be opened
and a substitute touched be sent there
to teach the pupils who come.
Mr. Doble stated that under the
rules the children of Brambleton Ward
could not bo provided for there. They
must be provided for by the Local
Board of Branbleton Ward.
Mr. Pinkerton stated that the Lo?
cal Hoard of Improvement bus de?
termined to open another school-room
and provide another teacher. There
will be an annex to No. 2 school.
The motion to open a room In No. 1
school wits carried provided that the
Local Board pay the expenses.
Miss Lillian M. Ogtevlc and Miss
Annie E. Gammon were nominated for
the vacancy In the Holt street school,
batch candidate was highly commend?
ed for ability and character, but Miss
Oglevie was elected by a vote of 7
to 4.
There wore three applicants, Henry
Barker (not eligible), It. Sam Bell and
W. J. Parker for the place of principal
of the colored school In Queen street.
The report of the committee men?
tioned the fact thai B. Sam Boll bad
lost his right arm, and. therefore,
might be unable to control the largo
boys.
Mr. Fast advocated the appointment
of Loll and said that a negro who has
equipped himself for such a position
deserves consideration.
Mr. Davis said the fact that Hell had
lost an arm and was unable to do
manual labor makes it more Incum?
bent on the board to elect him to this
place.
Mr. Randolph said that Bell has pro?
fessional qualifications which lit him
for stich a position. It is praiseworthy
'? conduct in a man to prepare himself
j for a teacher. The schools nowadays
do not need a prize-lighter. This man
I is a native, and therefore is a line cx
? ample to the young colored boys of
! the city.
Boll was elected unanimously.
Next came the promotion of two col?
ored Substitutes to the position of
teachers in the Queen street School.
They are Miss Rebcccah Grant and
Mis ?nnie M. Carter. In addition to
them Miss Courtney Moore was select?
ed as a third teacher for the same
school.
Moses Comtek was elected janitor.
Two substitute colored teachers wore
elected, namely. Miss Constance V.
Fuller and Miss Laura C. Moselev.
As there is but -*l.s.ippropridtcd for
the teachers it was divided as follows:
Hector. $45: the three women teachers,
each $30; janitor, $12.
A letter from Rev. E. B. McCluer call?
ed attention to hazing at the High
School, in which he described the char?
acter of the "hazing"?the new pupils
being made to run t he gauntlet of fifty
or sixty boys with paddles, and the
blows sound to passers by as the report
of a rillc. ?
A letter was also read on the subject
from Mr. George McK. Bain, princi?
pal of the lllt-'h School, in which he
said that the "paddling" of new pupils
is usual at the High School, but that It
does not amount to an indignity: that
there has only been report of one being
hurt at any lime by tbo "initiation"?
Dr. Coke Smith's son?but no complaint
was made of that.
j The subject revived reminiscences
! and provoked amusement among the
inembcrs. Hut Mr. Kullln said In: was
opposed to hnzlng In any form and
would advocate Its suppression.
Superintendent Doble said that be
had asked Professor Bain to direct that
it be suppressed.
On a report of Mr. Randolph, from
the Finance committee, the pay <>f Mrs.
Core, Who taught as Miss Alice Whnr
toh, was limited to the lime of her ser?
vice, which was one week. Miss Ogle
vie w ill be paid for the time of her scr
i vice as a substitute.

bers of the City Councils, as follows:

There was a long discussion of the

abled and as a gratuity. Even then
there arc restrictions which may mili?
tate against a pension:
The question was deferred to obtain
