wAnne xto Ren sS ierra Vista School Opened Pastel Desks, Colored Floors Spark Addition- A former GI Jbarracks converted into a schoolhouse made another step towards civilian life Monday as a colorful, four-room cinder-block addition was opened. Northeast Reno's Sierra Vista school on Valley road initiated a new addition by simply opening the doors and admitting the students. The only incident which could possibly be construed as ceremony was the placing oT a small American flag in each classroom. The $62,000 addition is a far cry from the wooden annexes which were used 20 years ago the country-wide to house the overflow of school children. Color is the outstanding difference. Each outside classroom door is painted a different color. The blackboards are green, the chalk yellow. The floors are bright, multi-colored tiles. The desks are pastel-colored. The only objects in the classrooms not colorful are those pieces of furniture handed down from some previous school generation. Robert Singleton, principal of the school, said the new addition ends the school's half-day sessions. Approximately 315 pupils are enrolled in the school. Twelve teachers serve kindergarten and the first three grades. The school's lunch room will foed 200 pupils daily. A good, though institutional, lunch costs the children but 25 cents. The Parent-Teachers association of the school will hold open-house in the new addition Wednesday night at 8 p. m. Mrs. Ford Burke heads that group.

A lease to assure completion of the multi-million dollar Stardust Hotel was reported to have been made today with Frank Hofues, a prominent hotel builder, who has pledged to raise $2,000,000 by Dec. 6. None of the principals in the Stardust could be reached for confirmation although it was reliably reported that the proposal of Hofues entry into the uncompleted resort hotel has been given to the gambling control board of the Nevada Tax Commission. In the negotiations it was reported- that Hofues will get one million dollars from Texas investors and ano'ther million from an insurance company. Hofues, who has an interest in the Lady-Luck Hotel now being constructed on the strip, south of the new Dunes Hotel, was formerly connected with the ownership of the Golden Hotel in Reno. Hofues, if he raises the money to complete the hotel which was promoted and started by the late Tony Cornero Stralla, will receive a 10 year percentage lease on the hotel rooms but will not be connected with the operation of the casino. The casino is already under lease to a group headed by Milton B. Page, an owner of the Pioneer Club in downtown Las Vegas. Georgia had a homicide rate of 14.6 per 100,000 people in 1952, about 30 times the rate in Vermont. SIERRA VISTA SCHOOL, in northeast Reno, opened a new four-room addition Monday (shown right) and thereby ended a two-month period of half-day sessions. Kindergarten and first-grade pupils will inhabit the colorful building. (Christensen photo). riLOT LEAPS MOJAVE, Calif.. Nov. 9. (JP) A Manhasset. N.
