The following petition w as
Melville, La., Nov. 6, 1911.
We, the teachers of the Mel
ville High School, do hereby
present this petition to the town
council of the town of Melville,
asking them to donate a sum of
money sufficient to meet the cost
of oiling the hall floors, including
the assembly hall and stairways
in the high school building.' The
law requires these floors to be
oiled, and as our "indidental
fund" is insufficient to cover this
expense, we are forced to make
this appeal for aid.
