Last Friday the Buldlng and
Grounds committee of the boart of
education visited the high school and
looked over the grounds which the
students were cleaning up at the
time. They decided that the time
had arrived when some improvemtota
were necessary and suggested that
the faculty determine upon acme
plan tor improvement.
Accordingly, the faculty drew out
a plan for walks, lawns, tennis courts,
base ball diamond and basket kail
courts. This plan was presented to
the committee and approved by thym.
A number of the students have xlao
volunteered to furnish teams and to
do manual labor for the improve
ment of the grounds.
The first thing that will be dont ia
the leveling off of the south side for
lawns and a tennis court, after which
shale will be hauled for tbe purpose
of making walks. When the grounds
are leveled the Boosters' club has
agreed to see that the courts are pre
pared. The school certainly extends
to tbe club sincere thanks slid appre
ciation for their proffered generosity.
