Taking a definite Btep in the matter it a proposed addition to the Silver Lake School, the Belleville Board of Education last night appointed J. N. Pierson, of Perth Amboy, as architect -o draw complete plans, and to super vise the work of the construction. Jharles Granville Jones, a Belleville irchltect, also appeared before the board, and together with Pierson, sub mitted tentative plans and estimated vosts for the proposed Improvements, but tho cost set by Mr. Jones was ibout $5,000 higher than that of Mr. Pierson, and as a result, when a vote was taken on the selection of an archi tect, It stood 6 to I In favor of Mr. Pierson. The figure of Mr. Pierson Is that the extension will cost about $22,000. He guaranteed that under present plans the price will not exceed that, while Mr. Jones said that the building would cost from $25,000 to $27,000, and that he would not guarantee the price. Mr. Jones's plans were that the ad dition be 44 by 90 feet, while Mr. Pier son figures 40 by 84 feet. The improve ment Is to equal five class room, an auditorium and a principal's office. The successful architect In his original submission stated that the Improve ment would cost about $21,000 for a building 40 by 84 feet, but considering tho ofher dimensions he increased his estimate $1,000. In the discussion of the question some of the members thought It ad visable to lay the matter over for ^ week for more consideration, but Com missioner Dr. John F. Condon made a motion that air. Pierson be decided upon, and this was seconded by Com missioner Clearman. The vote was 6 to 2. The present overcrowded condition of the Silver bake School lias been noted to the board by Supervising Principal George R. Gerard, who has pointer! out that within a short time, if something was not done to remedy things, the pupils would have to go on part time. This school building has already cost nearly $50,000. Mr. Gerard reported, unofficially, that the State Board of Education has again decided that Belleville I* entitled to a supervising principal, which office had been abolished by that body sev eral months ago. Mr. Gerard said that the only knowledge he possessed of the decision of the State Board in rescind ing Its former action was what he saw in the newspapers. As yet no official : notice has been given to Belleville J authorities. — WILL LAY OBJECTIONS BEFORE GOVERNOR WILSON.
