tains fourteen rooms, of which twelve
are for classes and trades with office
and room for heating plant.
Over two hundred students can be
accommodated in this building. On
the third floor is the chapel, music
room, historical and relic room an4
library.
The Institute must have a dormitory
to house the large number of students
who have been turned away in the
last few years, owing to the lack of
proper accommodations. Robt.
Gotwald, architect, has drawn the
plans for the dormitory which will
cost in two sections $35,000 to $40,000.
The first section can be erected for
$20,000. With this buifding and Cen-
Curry the school can double its ca
pacity. Here is an opportunity for
some good friend to start the funds
for the dormitory and thus increase
the usefulness of a school that has
afforded industrial training to over
two thousand worthy young men and
women during the nineteen years of
its history.
Professor Curry will be very grate
ful for donations in any amount, either
for buildings or current expenses.
