-1 ,f i THE SIOUX CITY JOURNAL. Tuesday. November . 1955 Space Shortage in Public Schools Kcceivcs Airing '. Twelve new . teachers, wkfe added to the Sioux City public schools system last fall at sal-eries averaging $4,400. The number hired might have been two or three less if the city had had adequate classroom facilities. Marvin T. Nodland, superin tendent of schools, made that statement after a board of education meeting Monday .night at school AdministFation jbuilding. He made the estimate upon re-i qus't of an observer at the session, who wished to know some of the results of the defeated school board bond issue. That result,, he said, is based en the simple mathematical fact' that, when 16 to 18 pupils are crowded into a room the size of a broom closet, a teacher must be supplied for each "su ch room. Larger classrooms would allow, one teacher to handle almost twice the number with far more desirable learning results, he said. Paints Sad Picture ' Other results, drawn up In a full report by Mr. Nodland with the assistance of the board, show that a class at Bryant is meeting at North ' junior school and another in the nurse's room at Bryant: the fifth and sixth grade classes at Lincoln school meet in the auditorium; a class at Crescent Park school meets In the auditorium and .another in an old kitchen; the kindergarten at Emerson school meets only ojj-half time every other day and another class meets in the nurses room for one-half day during the school week; three classes at Whlttier school meet in the old gymnasium in the basement; two classes at Riverview school meet in a "substandard" basement classroom; one section of the kindergarten .at Smith school meets in basement storeroom, and Irving school POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT Wgn? ftp fBK3 I saillfflffi cm m GENTLE ANTACID -r i MIL at .

The learning process, it was related, also Is stymied in that, in most' cases where a class must go to another school for its work, a bus must wait for vthe whole room to assemble before taking the pupils to the "borrowed" school and returning them to their own. About 300 more pupils were registered at the beginning of the school year than last year, the superintendent said, and added that since families are larger by several children, on t h e average, than 10 to 15 years ago, the overcrowded situation would exist whether new families came to the city or not A number of members of the Junior league atterided'the meeting. The group was briefed in advance of the meeting on various problems and administrative goals. . P. T. A. Units to Help Among significant business were requests showing a desire on the part of various school P; T. A. grdups to "foot" as much of their own bills' as possible, and submission to the board of a plan to provide an enriched program of study for the "gifted" pupils. Hawthorne, Emerson and Roosevelt P. T. A. units requested the board to pay one-third .of the cost of adding machines lor school offices. Each volunteered to manage, the other two-thirds of the payment - themselves. The board approved the requests, The plan for outstanding chil dren in city public schools would affect about 15 to 20 per cent of the total enrolled pupils, Mr. Nodland said. It wasjhe who suggested the plan. The' board voted to refer the matter to the education department and the superintendent for investigation of further possibilities of teach ing the gifted pupils. ' The matter of the city building code including the provision that public schools are to be treated like any business in that they must buy a building permit from the city, was considered. H. C. Roberts, secretary and business manager, said he had mentioned the matter to Robert M. Hoising- ton, city manager, as an instance for unfairness and requested that it be corrected. Des Moines Meeting jut. .noisingion, w n e n approached later Monday, said the revised building code would in clude an exemption for public schools in regard to those fees. ne saia, runner, ina: u any expansion program should ma terialize before the code had been revised, that an amendment io the present code would be made to rectify the matter. -Any member of the school sys tem who is able was authorized to attend the Iowa Association of School Boards convention November 17 and 18 jn Des Moines. Board members approved a suggestion to ask a $3 deposit of pupils using school musical instruments.- The money is to be returned at the end of the school year if the borrowed instrument has not been damaged. There are 1,837 pupils in the '-public school 'Instrumental program. Two hundred ind eighty-three instruments are school owned. The cost of instruments' ranges to $790. Salaries totaling $285,188.79 were approved. Total claims amounted to $326,201.29.

The resignation of Mrs. Marcia Burke, elementary teacher now on leave of absence, was ac cepted.

Opinion Differs Concerning Value of Railroad Bridge The city recently decided to get rid of the old streetcar bridge which crosses the Chicago, Milwaukee, St Paul and Pacific railroad track near War Eagle park.. The action was requested by the Milwaukee, which considers the structure a danger to its right-of-way. When the council authorized the letting of bids on the pro ect several weeks ago," Paul V. Roberts, director of public works said-he thought thecity should just about come out even on the cost of removing the bridge by permitting the successful bidder to keep the salvage. But when the bids were opened at the council's meeting Monday there seemed to be a difference of opinion among the five Sioux City bidders as to just how valuable the salvage was. Tor instance,' Booth & Olson offered, to do -the job only if ib,e city paid it $2,240 above whatever it could get out of the salvage. Davis Wrecking Co. asked $2,100 .from the city . as -"to boot."Sulzbach- Construction Co. wanted $2,250 extra -end Barger Bros, asked $1,800. But H. E. Southard Construe tion Co. may have taken a closer look at the old bridge. It offered to take the job and the salvage and pay the city $10 for the privilege. Instead of immediately snap ping up the latter offer, the city deferred awarding of a contract pending a routine inspection of bids. - Fire Strikes Farm Family Soon to Go to New Town Home SIOUX CENTER, la. Spe cial: Mr. and Mrs. Henry Lam-mers, fanners five miles southwest of here, had bought a new house and were planning to move to town. Sunday morning their old farmhouse burned to the ground. Mrs. Lammers discovered the fire about 6:45 a. m. as she was preparing breakfast She called the Sioux Center volunteer fire department The firemen were able to bring only 500 gallons of water with them and, due to the 1 dry summer, the only water1 on Jhe farm was in a dis tant pasture. Rich Rozeboom, fire chief, said water in Sioux Center, also was low because many farmers had been forced to get water from town. Chief Rozeboom said faulty wiring was the cause of the fire. Total loss to both structure and furniture inside was set at $7,000. i Pueblo Indians of New Mexico had no domesticated mammal except the dog, and the turkey was their only domesticated fowl.
