County Schools May
Face Overcrowding
City and county school of
ficials are keeping their fin
gers crossed this week as they
wonder what effect the influx
of defense workers and army
connected families will have
on school enroliment.
In Tacoma, Supt. Howard R
Goold professed no worry, since
enroliment has dropped in recent
years and most of the schools
have room for more pupils, if more
County Supt. Percy J. Cox, how
ever, looks with much concern at
a number of schools on the edges
of the military reservation and
across the Narrows which already
had increased enrollment beyond
capacity when school closed last
“On a basis of enrollment at the
close of school in town,” City
Supt. Goold said, “when much of
the influx already had taken place,
we are not anticipating anything
phenomenal., We are sitting ready
to expand the number of our
teachers, if it becomes necessary,
but school wil] open with approxi
mately the same staff as last
Expect County Expansion
There undoubtedly will be some
expansion in county school staffs,
Supt. Cox said, and some already
have increased theirs. In several
of the schools he anticipated a
jump in enroliment of 20 to 25 per
cent at the opening of school next
Wednesday, Sept. 3, and possibly
60 per cent by the time the term
gettles dewn,
“We are planning on a lot of
increase,” he said, “but we don't
know how much. There's no way
to find out except by a house to
house canvass until school opens.”
He expects to see biggest in
creases in such schools as Clover
Park district, now including five
grade schools under the reorgani
zation plan; at Dupont and Span

Douglas Miller’s Sensational
Best-Seller Which Leaders
of America Urge Every
American to Read
For 14 years commercial attache at Berlin, the author learned
at first hand, from Nazi leaders and lieutenants from Nazi
regulations and documents and plans, how the Nazis do business
today—and how they plan 1o do business tomorrow.
If the Nazis win the war, they will put those plans into efect—
and if they do everything America stands for and has fought
for will vanish.
Fantastic? Not when you know the facts set forth in "You
Can't Do Business with Hitler' —which Wendell Willkie, David
Lawrence, Raymond Clapper, Elmer Davis, H. V. Kaltenborn,
John Kieran, William L. Shirer urge every American to read.
By special arrangement, “You Can't Do Business with Hitier™
now will be published as a series of daily articles
navy vard emploves, there already
was an extra roomful of pupils
when school closed in the spring,
Cox said.
Huge Growth Forecast
Dupont, he said, may see an en
rollment jump of 50 per cent at
the opening, and probably 100 per
cent later, since that is the loca
tion of the government's defense
housing project.
At Parkland, he said, 95 houses
new in the past year were counted
recently, At a rate of two pupils
per house that may make a sub
stantial difference in the school's
enrollment there.
