hour a.nd thirteen minutes and would
be given three hours additional.
Despite the fact that the wets have
two hours and thirty minutes re
maining, they announced that they
had closed their case. Harreld said,
so they will be allowed "only three
hours in all.

Will Build at Thirty-Fourth
St.. Says President
\
Vonnegut.
SMALLER CAPACITY!
Action Expected to Be Takert
Tuesday Night.
Heeding the plena of north sids
citizens President Theodore F. Von*
negut of the .school board today an*
nounced that the board now desired
to build the new Shortrldge High
School at Thirty-Fourth and Merid
ian Sts.
The board and property owners
have been at odds since the first of
this year because of efforts of the
bos.rd to locate the building else
where. The board majority faction,
led by Vonnegut, has contended that
the Thirty-Fourth St. site Is too
small to permit a building as large a*
patrons have asked.
In announcing he helievea the
board will push the new building at
the generally favored site to com*
pletion as soon as possible, Vonnegut
said the only contingency was
agreement of the patrons that the
building have maximum capacity of
1,800 students. Original plans for a
building at Thirty-Fourth St. call
for 2,500 capacity.
Action Tuesday
If there is no concerted objec
tion by property owners the board
probably will take action next Tues
day evening looking toward the
breaking of ground for the new
building early in September. It Is
hoped to have the structure com
pi ted by September, 1927.
The new building will cost about
$900,000 as compared to the origin
ally planned $1,200,000 cost of the
2,500 capacity building. It probably
will be two stories high with a base
ment. Power house will attached to
the building on the rear.
Vonnegut said plans now under
consideration call for placing either
the cafeteria, or gymnasium of the
school njxtve the power house.
The wing idea will be carried out

hall In one of the wings, he said.
