delay in starting work on the new building- If thS Sit ‘Committee consents to acquire it the plans for the - structure would bo ready In a very short time and work started in less than six months time than it would be if new plans have to be prepared” The acquisition of the additional property would make it necessary to remove several houses now located on ' the plot giving the site virtually a square block When tba site was first selected 8 J Ellsworth principal of the high school recommended that : the additional ground be condemned - In order to enable the engineers to lay- out an adequate athletic -field - However the Site Committee decided not -to include the entire tract af that time However Ihers- are reasons to llsvc that In view of the architect’s recommendation the ground may be aenuired ':r The cost of coxldemnlng the houses onr the property would probably average- about $60000 hut in the opinion of Mr - Ellsworth tha purchase of -the extra tract would be wholly advisable ' It Is ' believed- that in view’ of the recent' announcement' of the- City officials that work would be stalled shortly on the new trunk sewer for herRockaways the difficulty of having the school constructed with adequate sewer lines -
