New York Board of Education Believes It Has Solved Per plexing Problems. i SCHOQLHQUS JtJ K V!00M FOR 8,000 CHILDREN. Fireproof Structure Will Front on Three Streets and an Alley and Will Have Two Hun dred Classrooms. KEPUBUC FPECIA'i, New Tork. Oct. S The Board of Edu cation believes that the utilization of the skyscraper Ida !n a twelve-story aehool house will solve many difficult problems encountered in the congested districts of the city. Arrangement! to put the. new plan Into execution have already been compfetfrd. The blnrest school bulldlnc tn the world Is to be erected at Grand, Iadlow and Norfolk streets on the rite of School Jo. 137. Thlf building Is to be torn doin to make way for the skyscraper, and the pupils wn be accommodated In Public School No. C at Hestor. Norfolk and Es rex streets. whll It I. building. Public School Xo. C Is now under con struction, ana it was the Intention of the Board of Education to make a skyscraper out of It, but t! rchool authorities flnally dedded to abandon the Idea. The building, which will be completed within a year, is six stories high, es It was checked in its towering height at this story on account of the popular fear of fire. TO ACCOMMODATE 8,000. The r.ew skyscraper will be absolutely fireproof and -n 111 have every possible mean- of escape In ca of danger. It has not yet been decided whether the building will be ten or twelve stories high, but If It Is ten stories high it will accommodate Sn children. Associate Superintendent George S. Davis, who has been Interested in the skyscraper building as a olution to tho crowded rchool problem. Bald to-day that the idea was generally favored bv the school authorities, and that he and) Bulld lns: Superintendent Snyder had decided that It was so perfectly practicable that i?"3. """'d be pushed through at once. School building No. 137." said Mr. Da vis, "stands on a site of 80x171 feet. When the new building is erected on that much ground it may readily be seen what "conomy In space will be brought about. iniB iana is vaiuame. ana we can ac commodate Just twice as many pupils as the ordinary large building by running it up Into the air. TWO HUNDRED CLASSROOMS. "The nw structure, for which Mr. Sny der has excellent plan will contain about 3X classrooms. Classes will be confined to floors in relation to their grades, so that there will be no necessity for pupils Ifaving the one floor. The building will be devoted to the higher grades, and that will ba another point In favor of the ekyscraper in case of fire. The older pu pils will have more sslf-pcsnesslon, and therv. besides that, the exoellent control teachers haTe over scholars on account of fire drills Is almost perfect. "Tho are-drill problem in the large reboots has reached a degree of perfection that makes the handling of large crowds a simple matter. "Of course, the building will be as near ly fireproof as modern building construc tion will allow, which means that prac tically the only Inflammable substances will be the furnishings. There will be four exits and four high-speed elevators. Es calators will run between Boors, and there will be a number of broad stair ways. "The departmental system will boused, and this, together with the fact that the scholars are all of the higher grades, will h!p a great deal. The departmental Bys tm of teaching was proposed for the new building In order to keep each grade to a single floor and do away wltn the neces sity for pupils to pass from one floor to anotner. FINE FOR NIGHT SCHOOLS. "The building will be especially suited to night schools, and as this proposition has keen almost as serious on the east side as the 4ay school, the skyscraper will be a grant advantage. The building will b a nearly like a modern offlce building as possible, and when it is fin ished it will be the biggest school building in the world, and the first of its kind as well. "The skyscraper Is bound to be the solu tion of the problem." said Mr. Davis, "for it Is nec"sary to make the most of the ground allotted. We have already planned the problem of dismissal to a certain ex tent, for to turn 8,f00 or 10.000 children out at once might be confusing. For this reason different hours of dismissal will be arranged. At dismissal the pupils on the lowr floors will go out by the stair ways. th uppr-Soor pupils uslne- the ele vators. As the building will front on three streets and an alley It will be easy. comparatively speaiung, to empty me school. The building will be arranged with fif teen claserooms on each floor, and each room will accommodate fifty pupils. Of course, we cannot begin the building until No. 137 Is torn down, and this necessitates finding accommodations for the scholars In this school. No. 62. which Is a large school, will offer this room, and as soon as It Is completed the pupils will be transferred to It and No. 13i torn down." Building- Superintendent Snyder said In regard to the proposed sk scraper that It was entirely practicable, and had he not considered It so ho would never have rroposed It for school building at No. "I believe the skyscraper school building to be the practical solution of the sschool problem. There is not space enough to expand on the ground, so the schools will have to follow the plan of the office build ing expand upward." TEXAS PANHANDLE GROWING MORE WHEAT THAN EVER. Implement Retailers Laying; In IJb- ernl Slocks of Machinery In Spite of Drought and Hot Winds. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. Dallas, Tex.. Oct. S. The Panhandle country is once more to In front in the grain-raising Industry. The black eye given to the wheat crop of last year, be cause of drought and hot winds, has not discouraged the farmers of that region. Implement retailers are laying In lib eral stocks of plows, planters, seeders and cultivators, and report that th farmers are going to make another effort to raise a big Wheat crop on the heels of their fail ure of this year. They are foil of faith in the Panhandle as a. grain country, particularly for wheat. Recent rains have been of such volume throughout the Panhandle section that the retailers and farmers feel confident that the ground will be stored with mois ture sufflcientr to carry the crop through to maturity, with anything like winter and spring rains to re-enforce the precipi tation already experienced. Commercial Agent Magruder of the Fort Worth and Denver Railroad, who has Just made a tour of the Panhandle district, came down to Dallas a few risvs ago. and spread glad tidings throughout the Implement lobbing district. Mr. Ma gruder was enthusiastic over the recent rain! and declared that in his Judgment they assured a splendid wheat crop for IKS. He advised that the Jobbers give es pecial attention to the Panhandle section, and as a result traveling men are up there booking orders for machinery used in the grain lands. Mr. Magruder says rains never came at a more opportune time in the Panhandle country, and the farmers ar a unit in the belief that next year is going to be aa unusually rood one for Our Men's $15.00 Suits Are Just precisely what good clothes should be they're fashionable, dressy and contain all the potent points that insure serviceability.
