r*age Four WELLSVILLE DAILY REPORTER, WELLSVILLE, NEW YORK Tuesday, August 25, 1959 Board Agrees on Architect, Makes Tentative Decision for 14 Rooms Wellsville Central School District school board probably will' pro pose building of a 14 - room elementary school on the Fairgrounds ske, the board agreed last night. If .anything is built, the architects will be Waasdorp, Northrup and Austin of Rochester, designers of Brooklyn School and its addition, and the most recent High School addition. A definite decision on the architect wajs reached by the five board members present, constituting a bare quorum, on grounds the decision shouldn't wait, and on expressions of confidence that the decision would be agreeable to most or all of the four absent members. Present were President Walter Wittmann, Chester McEnroe, Harold Wilkins, Reid McKee and Thomas Woolard. The agreement to ask voters for approval of a 14 - room school, instead of a 21 - room structure, was reached tentatively pending ' expected arrival by Sept. 1 of three of the four out - of - town board members. In the tentative agreement to submit a 14 - room plan to the voters, it was ruled tRat the plan should contain provisions for future expansion to 21 rooms — and it also was noted that the architects would have to draw preliminary plans for 21 rooms, then delete seven of the rooms, to create an expandable 14 - room building. Until that point is passed, the 'choice between 14' and 21 \rooms might remain relatively open. Fear of Rejection Voiced Basic reasoning voiced in behalf of the 14 - room plan -was based on the idea that voters of the WCS district might reject a 21-room plan, and that to replace Washington School and the basement rooms permit risk, even a moderate risk, that the proposal be defeated in the bond issue referendum. ' Superintendent John Gilmore advanced the idea that a "certain 14 rooms" would be preferable to a "possible 21 rooms" and the view was accepted with apparent unanimity by the five members present. Members Chester McEnroe and Thomas Woolard indicated specifically they would have supported a 21 - room proposal but accepted the superintendent's suggestion without demur. Committee Represented Citizens Committee members Gregory Thfipclitus, chairman; Mrs. Helen A". O'Donnell and Lavern Palmiter, present, by invitation of the board, indicated support of the expandable 14 - room plan. Mrs. O'Donnell pointed out that some rooms of a 21 - room building would not be needed, at least for regular classroom use, i until the 1963 - 64 school year, according to findings of the census of pre - school children. By that time future population trends and Wellsville's economic status might be better knowji. In response to a question, Superintendent Gilmore said, that it would not be necessary to confine construction to the seven - room elementary unit, "package," but be commented that the system woul'd be more convenient and efficient if the numbers of sections of each grade could be kept identical in the small Martin and Washington (or Fairgrounds) buildings, with the larger Brooklyn School absorbing any unequal number of rooms per grade. In discussion of the size of the proposed building, Board Member Reid McKee noted , that interest which would be paid on the seven rooms, not needed urgently prior to 1963 for classrooms, would about offset the extra .cost caused by the two -. stage construction of the 14 rooms, followed by the final seven rooms two years later. Architect Choice Discussed The firm of '.\VfUJsdorp, Northrup and Austin, was the only one brought forward for serious consideration in talk among board members and the visiting Citizens Committee delegation, although Superintendent Gi'lmore listed four or five firms with which he had dealt in past years/in various other schools, and said that all of them had proved to be competent and cooperative. Charles Northrup of the Rochjes- I ter firm attend.ed the earlier part of the season, to outline his company's organization, and standard procedures. A representative of another architect firm had been heard at an earlier special meeting, also with Citizens Committee members, and four or five others had • replied to correspondence inviting them to* sutimit their organization, school building experiences and other pertinent facts. Pros, Cons Weighed Prior to Teaching a decision on choice of architeirts, the board members appeate'd'to reach agree- menjt that no aVqhiteci h^d, a "magic fprmula" for reduction of costs, and that final decisions regarding size and other basic features of a buil'dingf were respon- 1 sibility of the board, a.nd not of | the architect. Members and guests not supporting ! '4tte final choice, ! specifically, appeared to be in a- 1 greement tha the,choice made little difference insofar as costs were concerned. The only implied question of the choice of the Waas- dorp partnership regarded public relations, involving a concern that the firm might be associated in the minds of some voters with the building proposal' which was defeated in the spring of 1958. Members putting that consideration forward agreed with others that the architects should not be expected to share that responsibility — "They, design what they're asked to design," was one comment. Principal factor cited in favor of employing the .Waasdorp firm was the history of satisfactory past experiences with them, in all > construction jobs for the district in recent years. Also, it was pointed out that the firm had ottered to deduct from its fees such amount as could be saved by application of planning, site study and other procedures in the 1958 building proposal. The saving of time, because of the firm's familiarity with the site, also was advanced, along with the idea that the board and administration already were acquint- ed 'with the Rochester 'Company's personnel through previous successful building programs. Offer to Dedicate Street The board adopted a resolution offering to the Village of Wells- vil'Je, lor dedication as a street, a 50 - foot wide strip of land running along the northwestern edge of the Fairgrounds property. The proposed street would'parallel Dyke Street on the side of the property nearest Dyke Street. It would begin at Williams Street, extending northward and eastward for nearly 820 feet. Also provided was a new connecting street to run from Dyke Street to the new street, next to Amidon's Grocery store. The resolution as adopted was prepared by School' Attorney 'Don Cummi.ngs, who conferred with board members prior to the beginning of their meeting. Questionnaire Results Listed Prior to discussion of building size, board members reviewed a summary of responses to a questionnaire circulated by the board at a public meeting Thursday of last week. All present expressed concern that the persons attending were not a representative cross section of the district's voters, and that the attendance was too small to provide a conclusive indication of public opinion. Responses to the questions found 11 ot' those who answered the questions were in favor of a 14 - room schol, and 91 favored a 21 room building. Of the 11 favoring a 14 - room school, 10 indicated a wish that the building be made expandable, one suggested "leaving it up to the board." Of the 91 who voted for 21 rooms, 69 checked "yes" on the question of ex- pansion, 16 voted "no,"' and six didn't vote. On the question of the suitability of the Fairgrounds site, 103 •checked "yes," one checked "no," .two suggested acquisition of more land to build on the High School Brooklyn site.

I NEW YORK (AP) — The stock I ' market nudged to the upside early this afternoon with steels, motors. and some aircrafts taking the lead. Trading continued slow although the pace was a bit faster than Monday when volume sank to a. year-and-a-half low. After an irregular start, prices began to improve gradually with industrials carrying the ball while rails and utilities did practically, nothing. g Brokers saw the action as\a continuation of a mild see-saw trend with no particular news to prompt the improvement. Uncertainties regarding the international situation and the labor troubles in steel and other industries continued to dominate Wall Street's mood. The rise in the U.S. Treasury's short - term .borrowing costs to their highest i. point in a quarter century led to speculation that another rise in the discount rate may be coming. This is usually j depressing as the stock market dislikes high interest rates. Zenith movM up a pounle of points and Texas Instruments more tha.n 3. Chrysler rose about a point and Ford made a similar gain. Youngstown Sheet rose about 3. Gains of a point or better were scored by Jones & Laughlin and Lukens. * Martin Co., rose about 2 and, United Aircraft and North American Aviation about a point. Allis-Chalmers was up about a point. Kennecott was down more than a point. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks at • noon was up 501 cents to $229.70 with the industrials up $1.20, the rails unchanged and the utilities down 10 cents. Government bonds eased.
