NOT IN HURRY FOR ACTION Matter Will Not be Pressed at This I Time, But Trustees Oesire to Hsve Request for Authority Put Before t Present Legislature. Although It does not ?iah to raise ?the question of a new High school building at this time, the board ot school trustees will a*ik the city coun? cil to seek permission from the pres? ent legislature to issue Slno.ooo M bonds or to rauWi thereof as may be necessary for the building of such a school. The trutets probably will I present the matter to. the council committee on finance at Its regular ?meeting next month so that if 'he action of the council Is favorable the matter can be presented to the legis? lature before It adjourns at the end of next month. In the opinion of the school trus? tees u n'*w high school building witb Jn the next two years will be a ne? cessity. They point cut that on Feb? ruary* 1, when the serai-annual pro? motions are made, three school grade.s will be crowded out of 'he Central building to make rorm for Uta High school and that next September one or two more will be crowded out. This overflow from the school must ?be taken care of In the Bast End, -End buildings and the trustee* claim ?hat the parent.; of the pupils crowd? ed out of the Crnrril school will raise | vigorous protests. Want to be Ready. The trustees cay that they do not ask the council to" decide on an is? suance of bonds at th*s time, but | ihpy do ask that the council place it? self In a position to be able to ?nb roit the question to the vote of thai people whenever the voters make a j demand for It. The trustees further claim tfiat the High school, whenever built, must g<> ] either to North End or East End. order to secure the ground that i-ueh j a school should have. They further) cintend that if the city annexes the territory now being considered andj improvement bonds are issued, it would be wise for the council to con? sider the advkabiiity of putting a part tf the proceeds of such bonds in a new High school building. Will Cause Debate. The matter of seeking permission irom the legislature to issue the bonds for a High school probably will cause a lengthy debate before the council. While in favor of having such a building, many of the council men do not think the city can afford! such a building for several years at least. In the opinion of some, the) work of the board of assessment, which .Iudge Harham is to appoint to| make a new assessment this year, will decide the matter. If the asses? sors raise the assessment on personal arid realty properly, the Jllgh school | is a posslblity, hut if the aasfssment remains unchanged there will not be much hope for the school.
