DISCUSS COMPLETION OF PRE
SENT BUILDING—WILL SUB
MIT QUESTION TO VOTE.
The school board of district No. 55
met last Saturday night with all mem
bers present except Mr. Brown. Sev
eral small business matters were dis
posed of and a large number of bills
At this meeting the board discussed
the advisability of completing the
present school building. The present j
building will be entirely inadequate
in size this coming term. Two rooms
will have to be rented in this city
for the purpose of accomodating all
the children. Last year the Roundup
schools had eight teachers and the
coming term there will be 10. After j
considerable discussion the school
board decided that it would be best
to wait until this year's assessment
roll is completed before they submit
the question to the qualified voters of i
district No. 55. The cost of comple
tion of the school house is estimated
in the neighborhood of $18.000.
