The large assembly room, which
contains 650 Beats was .found Inade
quate to seat the students of the new
Freshman class, which entered this
month and numbers 108. This made it
necessary to establish an additional
assembly room, which is situated on

nt about 125 students are seated there.

This numiber is divided .as follows:

27. Mr. Hrookhouse has arranged the
manual training course in such man
ner that it is now necessary to have
two credits in the blacksmith shop
before a student is allowed to take up
mechanical drawing. Two credits
mu3t then be obtained in mechanical
drawing by the student, and then he
is allowed to take up a course n the
machine shop, where two more cretlits
