PAGE FIVE HANDSOME NEW MONROE SHOOL Latest Addition to the Superb System of City Public School Buildings is Visited by Hundreds During Day Nowhere in the United States, it is believe!, stands a handsomer, larger or more completely equipped grade school building than the new Monroe school, thrown i pen yesterday arter noon and last evening for the initial public inspection. Occupying an ideal site, two and one half acres in extent, cn Seventh street between Van Ruren and Adams street, within a stone's throw of the handsome group of Phoenix Union high school buildings, adding to . the extensivencss of the school structures in that section of the city, and suffering no detraction from its individuality by reason of such proximity, this last word in Blade school structures will for many years to come stand a wonder ful and fitting monument to the progressiveness of Superintendent of City Schools John D- Loper, to the co-operative spirit of the school board of the district and to the con fidence of the general public of Phoe nix in Professor Loper and the hoard members. In many respects yesterday was a gala day at the new building. Com plete in every detail, with the ex ception of the window blinds to be Installed shortly, the Monroe school was ready for the eyes of the inter ested public with no probability or even possibility of other than words nf praise from those who accepted the invitation of the superintendent find the school board to come and see for themselves. From one o'clock in the afternoon until nine o'clock, with an intermission of one hour f.om six o'clock until seven o'clock, a steady stream of automobiles was arriving and departing from the curb at the Seventh street front of the structure. Hundreds came in carriages and other hundreds arrived on foot. None departed but that ex pressed wonder and satisfaction at what they were shown or found for themselves. A detailed description of the hand Fome structure and the completeness of its equipment would require col umns of newspaper type. Those who visited ' the site ; found a handsome tt nurture' of two floors, with base ment extending under one-half of the building:' The foundation and base ment are of concrete, while above the foundation and basemert walls Tucson pressed brick was employed. The inside walls were first plastered and then waterproofed with a special paint, permitting washing of the in terior and thereby insuring absolute sanitary conditions. Th? floors of the corridors are concrete, those of the manual training department are of soft pine, while those of t!e var ious othe'." school rooms are of hard wood. The stairways are of solid eteel and the corridors presen an ef fective barrier to possible fire. The exits are of a peculiar type o' con struction, it being impossible to lock any door from the inside ar.d every door giving o.it to pressure from within. The desks, specially constructed for this building, are of adjustible steel seats, with maple-mahogany tops. Each room is equipped with a clock connected with a master timepiece, and there is a complete intercommunicating telephone system throughout the building. Each class room is connected with a supply room, running water, sanitary paper towel racks and liquid soap appara tus. There are shower and tub baths throughout the building for the girls as well as for the boys. There is a complete ventilating system in suring the purest air. In all there are twenty class rooms, the section for the offices of the principal; as well as for the su perintendent, a reception room, a teachers' rest room, a room in which the teachers may partake of their noon-day lunches, a handsome audi torium seating 700 which is utilized as a class room when not otherwise employed, a domestic science depart ment, a sewing room with twenty modern sewing machines, a manual training department, and the gram mar school administrative quarters.

A great many new pupils from the Washington and Peoria districts have been enrolled. o President Gompers of the American Federation of Labor has been invited to speak on Labor Day in Indian apolis. n The Empress Much boasting has been heard coming from the Empress manage ment this week about the real "qual ity" bill running there. A very im partial critic of the show speaks of it as one of the best vaudeville shows which has been offered local patrons in many a month. Unlike the aver age bills which have at least one bad aot, the show this .week is good from curtain to curtain. A regular so called road show that could easily play bigger time and bigger cities. The increase in the business of the house is a very satisfactory proof of the pudding. This evening new movies will be shown. The entire bill is a treat from pictures to acts, and if It is not seen, a splendid array- of talent at its best will have been missed. The first show will now start at 7:30 instead of 7:45 as heretofore. its first practical use next Monday when the doors will be thrown open to receive the pupils who by reason of redisricting and by reason of the previous crowded condition of the Central school ' have ' 'been " virtually forced to find new quarters.
