FOR HIGH SCHOOL
Board of Education Favors Purchase
for Extension of Grounds for
Botanical Gardens and
Athletic Field
By the expenditure of almost $22,000
the board of education will proviclo
athletic and botanical ground for tho
Los Angeles high school. The "grave
yard" property behind the high school,
now in the possession of C. F. Sktlling,
was recently condemned by the courts
and a valuation of $21,500 sot upon It;
and last night the question of buying
it came up before the board of educa
tion.
Principal Housh of the high school
pointed out strongly the needs of aho
additional grounds both for botannfcal
gardens and for the athletic activities.
Other members of the board urged tiat
the present cramped conditions of (ha
school grounds were deplorable, and
when the high school board ndjourneif
it was In favor of purchasing the prop->^
erty.
Two years ago the same plot and
another lot besides were offered the
board of education for $8000, but tho
board did not accept it at that tlmo
because of lack of funds, and "Binco
then the property has almost trebled
in value.
Owing to lack of sufficient funds in
the high school treasury the necessary,
money will be taken from the common
school fund. A special meeting of tho
hoard has been called for Wednesday
HOOD to vote tliis money.
