In uur asseiuhi) hall we have ninety twu seats and every nook anil comer Is full. This )ear wn hae had an average enrollment of ninety live. At the beginning of the )ear we had forty-two hreshmeii. We are expecting a larger class next )ear, hut If 'It tiu tin larger than this year's class, our enrollment will bu larger because our Senior class has only four teen members. We are anxious that our school shall grow, nut It will make It very Inconvenient If it does, for mally of us will have to tit two In a single seat. Our need nf more class room Is Just s ureal, as we have only one that I uroDerly'llghted and has a suillclent seating capacity for a large class. Ow lug to this scarcity we resort tu the use of places Which make reciting extremely dllllcult at times. Some classes recite in the Assembly Hall, which is'supposed to lie for study, and thus both teacher ami pupils are dis turbed. Another small rooiuk which was Intended for a hall, Is used, This Is very Inconvenient, for another class has to pass through In going to and coming from class. I he labra lory, which U more than half tilled with tallies, must be used for other classes besides those in science. A new building would not be too expensive for this town, as some be' lleve, fur It would help the town. A town Is Judged by the sle and eipilp inent uf Its educational structures People would move from the country In order tn educate their children here. An Increased population would aid the town. A new building would undoubtedly bring more scholars, and more scholars tiring more tuition, and more tuition would help pay the ex pense of extra teachers.
