Champaign school director* a»e thedulcd t* tak* up this problem at a meeting at H p in. today In an effort to solve a pressing problem brought on by overcrowding of the schmil. Whether to spend MMf already i voted for on an addition to the; old building or to break out in a fresh direction with an eye to the eventual development of this whole neighborhood in a neigh borhood plan confront* the direc tors. Community planner* have given ; close study to the l-awhead situa tion realizing that the imminent j need may force a solution which will affect the entire neighbor- j hood for decade*. The study they have made. J which has the indorsement of the citizens’ ndviaory committees ; which have been closely following the evolution of the master plan, indicate* that what may appear to bo the easiest solution now actually would prove expensive and merely complicate the picture. They reason this way: Huilding a one-story addition to the present building will fur- j ther "freeze” the problem in that area. After the money once is spent on an addition it will be more difficult to break away from the old building built in 1907. An addition to the school build ing merely would extend its pres ent facilities. The otVL-of-date building probably would constrain ; the architect to carry on many of the old fashion school building principles in the design of the ad : dition. A new structure could inenr i fwrate the latest school designs ; and take advantage of the most | modern techniques in classroom j layout. A new school site would permit I the use oc a new' school ground, affording badly-needed additional i play area. (The present .25 acres, area is 50 per cent under ac cepted standards.) One of the most important reasons, from a financial stand* | pint, the planning office has I pointed out, is that the acquisition j of ground to the east towards the ; Douglas community center would hean buying up the least valubte property in the area. / ■ -n muit be abandoned and pm pored new Mldlnjt to the rut ,! l! w the aehool architecture technique* The new bulldinga. for inrtance would be ali bn one floor and would have an abundance of window apace The proximity of the thntglar community renter and ut Statistics cited in a recent letter to William K ('legg. chairman of the action!

The lavt suggestion is inad vitttthlc for several reason#, in cluding the necessity of dispws ftcKSing a« many »# 21 per sons whom* home** wuld 1h* #c quired for building purpoae*. By contrast, the direct route ea«t of the school would mean tak ing over building* housing only five to seven person# who noM la* accommodated in two new hous ing units, if th'-se bad to be pro- : vidod. In addition, sole of the alterna tive expansion programs would r< quire the demolition of new or re modeled houses, while no recently constructed unit# arc in the block wnrrr* iiu» itcnooi imwo Fipnna der th plan office proposal. The ultimate goal of the school expansion a# proponed by the plan ! office is to intergrate the new school with the Douglas rpmmu nity center and with the Kagle park to the north of the center. In other cities cooperative program* have been worked out between sehool and park district* so that athletic program*, and other school and community out door activities can be held alike on school and park property, thus expanding the recreational offer ings of both. The Law he ad enrollment now U 130, with a capacity of 120 (not counting the two basement class rooms now being used as emer gency measure). Under the expansion program, the school would grow something like this: This year and next four class rooms would be provided in a one story separated structure, bring ing the capacity up to 240 and af fording additional acreage of .5 acres (three city blocks), the min imum for such a school.
