GROUPS ARE NAMED Prince Georges Board of Education Also Studies Ap plications for Teaching. By a Staff Correspondent of The Star. UPPER MARLBORO, Md.. June 13. —Appointment of three building com mittees, study of applications for teach ing positions for next year, arid con sideration of matters brought to their attention by delegations, featured the regular meeting of the Prince Georges County Board of Education. Reopening of the Seabrook School was urged by a delegation from Sea- I brook, comprising R. Lee Van Horn, j George W. Morgan, Blair Riggles and A. J. Thomas. It was pointed out by an official of the board that the Seabrook children might be withdrawn from the Glenndaie School, which they now attend, and have their own classes re-established without cost to the county by the transfer of one of the Glenndaie teachers to Seabrook. After lengthy discussion the board finally took the matter under advisement. To Build Sidewalk. Granting the request of a delega tion from Capitol Heights, the board authorized an appropriation for the construction of a sidewalk in front of their school, subject to the approval of the trustees. According to Supt. of Schools Nicholas Orem, the property line is to be moved back 10 feet and the county to bear one-third of the. paving cost, the town one-third, while the other third is to be raised by public subscription. Knowing the board contemplates as signing only 10 teachers to their school next year because of reduced enroll ment, the same delegation asked that the present faculty of 11 teachers be retained. The board promised this would be done in the event the enroll ment next Fall increased to the legal requirement for that number. Mrs. Minnie Brook, Mrs. Keller and George Finger comprised the school’s delega tion. A request of the Parent-Teacher As sociation of the University Park School that six grades be authorized for that school was approved. Contract for the digging of an artesian well at the Oxon Hill School was awarded F. N. Heg man, his bid being $4 per foot. One other bid was received. Flag Donated. A donation of a flagpole and flag by the trustees of the Columbia Park School was accepted. The Peth Church School bus line to Brandywine was ordered extended to Cheltenham, a dis tance of about one and one-half miles. Diplomas for the high school graduates were authorized. The building committees appointed Were: For the Hyattsville Elementary School, Dr. Paul Herring, Charles W. Clagett and G. Sherman James. For the Cheverly-Tuxedo School, Ray mond Bellamy, C. L. Metcalf and Fred W Gast. For the addition to the Riverdale School, Brice Bowie, E. B. Dunford, M. D. Campbell, R. P. Caruthers, J. H. Baines, J. McDonald, Dr. C. A. Cary, Mrs. Bernice Salsbury and Edward Glading. FAIRLAND HIGH SCHOOL i HOLDS COMMENCEMENT Closing Exercises Are Held in Parish fTall of St. Mark’s Church. Special Dispatch to The Star.
