SKIDMORE ARCHITECT The Vernon, Myrtle Avenue Phone, Red 296 Monrovia, Cal. AN ARCHITECT IS SELECTED School Board Chooses Pasadena Man to Draw Plans. After a deadlock lasting for practically three sessions of the Covina Union High School board of trustees, au architect was chosen to draw plans for tee 360,000 high school building. The work is to be done by P. S. Allen of Pasadena, who has boot) the architect for 351 high and grammar schools in the United Slates, and has wide experience in architecture, both in the eastern states and on the Pacific coast. Other architects who competed were Norman F. Marsh, who planned the South Pasadena high school, and Mr. Kelly of Los Au- gelea.' The school board was for a time tinable to agree for the reason of the high efficiency and experience of all the architects, but it was decided that Allen's work in the past showed him to be capable of filling the position without doubt, and ho was finally made the unanimous choice of the board. The next step to be taken is the letting of the contract, which is expected will ^e accomplished within the next sixty days. The 860,000 school bond issue was sold during the Intter part of last week to the State of California, and the bonds were bought out of the state's surplus school fund. A pre- realised, \yblcb ^^PM 3 * 610 is considered a good sale, and accomplished only through the fact that the bonds were placed at' the small denomination of 81,000 each. ANDREW M.
