THURSDAY, AUGUST 21, mi School Board Offers Plan to Handle Big Enrollment ThJj Paper Couijti of Two Section*--S«cUoa Ow N«. 277 One solution for twin problems* schools which are now bursting at the seams was proposed Thursday by the Mason City School Board. Voters of Mason City will have *n opportunity, to make the decision Nov. 1 4, the Board decided. One bond issue will be submitted to finance a new Washington School and a ' n e w Roosevelt Elementary School. The Roosevelt building would be large--{hree classrooms for each grade. It would replace the present elementary building which would then accomodate the seventh grade replace Henkel to Build New Hoover School P* 9 « 12) classes from Roosevelt Junior High. The new building would be large enough to take care of the greatly increased enrollment which ' i n the June school 'Washington building ,,TM-- ..^j, relieve pressure for classrooms in MonrtJe Junior High by taking out the kindergarten, first, second and third grades now is indicated census. The would new help in that the one It would condemned and removed and also would take care of some of the increasing elementary enrollment. Architect Karl Waggoner was instructed to prepare estimates so the size of the bond issue needed may be determined. His preliminary sketches already are drawn on the two buildings. The decision to submit the two buildings to the voters Nov. 4 followed a three-hour discussion session at which a number of alternatives were suggested to solve the Roosevelt problem, The need for the Washington building already was established and caused no discussion. Discussed for some time was a suggestion to add f o u r or five classrooms to the^junior high and build an cxpandible school for two kindergarten, three first grade and three second grade classrooms, leaving the third, fourth, fifth and sixth grades in the old Roosevelt Elementary. This suggestion was discarded when it was agreed that five classrooms would be only a temporary solution for the junior high. Supt Lawrence H. Shepoiser then ad- vjsed that it would be educationally sound to house the seventh grade in the old elementry building. Architect Waggoner added that it seemed more sound financially than to start remodelling the junior high school. Remodelling, he pointed out, costs more than to build new the s a m e amount of cubic footage. Part of the basis for the board's decision to hurry the conduction of the two elementary schools were the following facts from the school census taken in June: 1. Th«r« *r« 142 m«r* children between the ages of Z and 6 than there were in the 1950 census. This means that there were that many more children who moved into the district than moved out during the last two years. 2. Th«r« ·!·· 370 mer* children between the ages of 0 and 0 than there were of those same ages in the 1952 census. 3. Th« number pf children born in 1951 exceeeded the number born in 1947 and for the first five months of 1952 fee birth rate topped either of the other two years for the same period of time. «. Allowing 1$ p* r cent to attend parochial schools, the projected elementary school enrollment for 195758 would be exactly 1,000 more children than were enrolled in 1951-52. U C O * .5.

Finletter said Thursday the United States is building a "dreadful force" of atomic air power. "We are building an atomic air force to persuade others never to make us use it," he told:the American' Legion's national convention^ He said 'plans are;'now complete for construction o f ' a h ' a t o m i c air armada which will be "the most devastating thing" in aerial history. Dissuade Attack Declaring that the object of the armada will be to dissuade any enemy from launching an attack, Finletter said that already, the nation's defenses are "in a pretty good shape." Earlier, Secretary of Ihe Army Pace said the Army has made "substantial a n d heartening progress since the start of Ihe Korean War. Back only a few days from in specting American troops in Europe, Pace made the statement in a speech to the American Legion convention. Regarding the slate of Ihc Army, Pace said the fads "fairly lead to a conclusion of caiilious oplimism, tempered by the consideration of tenuous problems that lie ahead." Army Growi In the 26 monlhs since the Korean conflict began, he said, the Army has grown from 593,000 men to more than 1,550,000. "Our training system," he said, "is second lo none in Ihe world. "The qualily of'our leadership," he went on, "as well as Ihe numbers of officers available, is substantially better than when we started our buildup for World War II." Weapons have improved, too, , , Pace said, 'adding: "And the potential of the atom will in the future be added to our firepower in the form of guided missiles and artillery." Secretary of the Navy Kimball, who followed Pace in the list of speakers, asked the Legion to help keep America strong on the seas.
