posed; May Get Use of
Old Fair Buildings.
Washington park may become the
site of an experimental station oper
ated by the city schools in connection
with its courses in agriculture, horti
culture and animal industry, if ini
tial steps taken at a meeting of the
school board Wednesday evening at
Bailey school bear fruit. Supt. R. J.
Tighe informed the board that mayor
Charles Davis had offered the schools
the use of the fair buildings in the
nark for such purposes. These struc
tures are to be demolished in the near
future, unless some use is found for
them and the mayor wanted to know
if the schools could use them.
After a lengthy discussion of the
advisability of extending its courses
at this time, the board decided to
delegate Supt. Tigbe and trustee C
B. Stevens to see the mayor and city
council and request that for the pres
ent the buildings be allowed to re
main, as the board might avail itself
of the orrer later on.

to trake a new inventory and ascer
tain exactly how many are needed,
the board desiring to purchase no
more than necessary. The matter of
building new rooms in Vilas, school
