The building would be of fireproof construction, brick and glass brick outside walls, glazed plaster would Floors in halls would be terraz zo and in the rooms asphalt tile. The thought in designing a modern high school is to surround the student with the best possible conditions to carry on the learning process.

Ceilings be acoustic material. The present board of educa tion, an appointed board from the consolidation action of June 1950 has been reluctant to tie a future board down to a def inite site. Therefore the present board has optioned two possi ble sites midway between the existing buildings, with the idea that the new "board can select either or go to still a different site if a more desir able one can be found. The present board cannot buy land before the bond issue is passed since there are no funds avail able until the passage of the issue.
