.14 Gofesburg Rjaisfer-Mo?t, Golesburg, Wed,, Aug, 21; 1963 Portable Classrooms May Be Answer for Burgeoning Population at Schools With populations burgeoning in almost every section of the United States, it's easy to find people who recognize the need for more classrooms. It's a lot harder to find taxpayers willing to pay for them, especially when other local governmental costs are rising rapidly. One answer to the taxpayer's plight is to be found in modern steel. America's basic metal is providing the means for hard- pressed communities to build modern, up-to-the-minute classrooms at a cost far less than other construction methods, according to engineering authorities. One of the unusual innovations Is the portable steel classroom which can be used as a wing on an already existing school building. Each such classroom is of standard size, 20 by 32 feet, and can accommodate as many as 40 pupils. The classroom can be expanded up to 24 feet by the use of center sections. The classroom, which can be dissembled, moved and reerect- ed, is made of corrosion-resistant galvanized steel panels. It comes equipped with a perforated steel ceiling which gives it outstanding acoustical properties, an asphalt tile floor, fluorescent lighting, Venetian blinds, chalk and bulletin boards, cabinets, lockers and a sink. The structure is almost indestructible in the ordinary sertse. Quickly Assembled Orle of the greatest advantages of the mobile classroom is that it only takes a day to a day and a half to have it ready for occupancy. In addtion, if school populations shift, the classroom can be moved to a new area where it is most needed. When it comes to permanent structures, steel again provides the best buy for today's school tax dollars, leading architects point out. Recently a well known school architect reported that it would cost a third less to build a new modern school to accommodate the same number of pupils than to duplicate a 1928 building from the original plans. And the new school would have larger classrooms, three times as much glass area for natural light, bet- Back in Portsmouth PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Afr­ it's b«en a while, but the Rev. 0. P.
