School Costing
Over a Million
Dollars Is Built
Most Thoroly Equipped Public
School for Race in U. S.
Near Completion
Atlanta, Ga.—What Is believed to
be tbe most elaborate and txpenslve
race pulbic school building program
ever undertaken by any community is
now nearing completion in this city,
grammar schools, seating 800 to 1,-
000 each, and a high school seating
1,500, the five erected at a cost to
date of 61,200,000, with more yet
to be spent on flnishliy; touches.
These new schools are part of a
general school building program In
volving a total of 63,800,000 and are
in every sense equal to the best the
city Is erecting, representing the last
word in construction and equipment.
In addition to all the usual modern
facilities, each Lb provided also with
medical and dental clinics, where the
pupils have the services of physician,
dentist and nurse.
Recognized Curriculum
The high school, which is named
for Booker T. Washington, will carry
the regular academic curriculum and
in addition will provide training in
wood work, carpentry, drawing, auto
mechanics, sheet metal, plaster and
cement work, talolring, pressing, sew
ing, cooking, child care, and teaeher

the pupils an all around training for
life and fit them for useful and re
munerative employment immediately
on graduation director of vocational
guidance helpe further to this end by
personal conference, lectures, bulle
tins and lantern si lies.
The race schools are sharing fu’ly
in toe efforts of the administration
to bring the city's public school sys
tem up to the highest standard of
cfiicimcy.
Want Representation
Back of this bo*Ming program *s
an in. 'resting story o£ interracial co
operation. Atlanta having grevy
outgrown Its school cystem, several
unsuccessful efforts were made to
vi'ie a bond issue for ne wbuildiugs,.
It was Sound that tne colored votara
held i**e balanc of powtr and had
thrown it against the plan.
City officials askeJ white member-j
of the local interrac’al committee why
this was so. The latter arrange a
conference with leading race citizens
and the cuestion was passed to then.
Tl.»y promptly replied: "Wtfy should
we vote taxes on o-ir?elves when, we
have no a-isuutce that we will :,et
any of the benefits.’’
The rest was easy. An agreement
would help carry the next bond elec
tion, their schools should have ap
proximately one-thhd of the proceeds.
That agreement is now being car
ried out.
