The bill provides for an appropriation of about $150,000 for a building and nlso provides thut a temporary building be secured for normal school purposes while the new building is in the process of erection.' The Fresno county legislators will make a strong fight to have the building erected at once. There is no desire to have the normal sciiool started as it was at San Francisco or San Diego. At these places, the only ap propriation was for a school in tempo rary quarters for two years. After that time, the necessity for such schools permitted of an appropriation for a building.
