The board of education last evening
ai a short session considered repairs
at the various school buildings, and let
contracts for the work. The painting
of the corridors and interior walls of
the Horace Mann and high school
buildings was provhled for. and ar
rangements for tae decoration of the
vails of the high school auditorium.
The high school chimney is to be rais
I'd 20 feet higher than at present, in
order to eliminate the difliculty which
has resulted from smoke from the high
school furnace being blown between the
high school and the Lincoln building,
liid carried into the fresh air ducts ol
the two schools.
To Improve -iilliiioii.
The (inestien of improvements in the
ventilating sustem of the Lincoln
building was left to a committee bead-
id by lr. J. . blewart. I lie plan is
to install galvanized pipes to carry the
bad air from the rooms to 'he outside
by way of the dome at the top of the
building, instead of dis( barging it into
the garret as at present.
The drive about the high school will
be relaid. The drive has In. en dam
aged by tht! heavy rains to such an ex
it nt that the water has been allowed
lo leak through into the manual train
ing department rooms in the south
basement of the building.
