fffi PAMPA DAILY 'NEWS, Pafiif)*, ...^.a> -SCHOOLS ADO TO WARD BUILDINGS AND START NEW AUDITORIUM-- M ORE EVIDENCE of the continued growth of the Pampa community is furnished by the pictures above of three school campuses on which there is building activity. Four-room additions have been constructed to the Sam Houston (north) and Woodrow Wilson (east) ward schools. A basement on one of the wings of the Sam Houston school will be used as a cafeteria. ,On the high school'campus, between the wings of/the main building, is to be completed the large ^chool auditorium, with between 1,200 and 1,400 seats, according to arrangements to be perfected, and a large, well-arranged stage. In each, instance, the contractor is O. L. Boyington. Considerably more than $100,000, without furnishings, is being spent in the three projects. The Pampa Independent school district voted $50,000 in bonds to obtain a 45 per cent PWA grant for the remainder. The architects are Rittenberry & Carder of Amarillo, who specialize in school construction and have drawn plans for scores of buildings in this section. Mr. Boyington, too, specializes in schools and has erected many, besides such structures as the Combs-Worley building and Fort Worth & Denver station here. Besides his larger contracts, he has a number of small ones now. New Auditorium To Be North of Administration Building Close l>y Hie above pictured Pam- ini high scliool will be erected a large auditorium. O. L. Boyington, Fampa contractor, is the builder. A $50,000 bond issue and a FWA grant nave made possible this building and the two ward school additions. Tlie auditorium will seat about 1,400 and will answer a need long felt here. In the school projects, materials were Carefully chosen and purchased from the following firms: General Supply company of Pampa, paints manufactured by the McMurtry Mfg. company of Denver; Acme Lumber company, Pampa, lumber; Rex Electric company, installations; V, M. Zanchettin Terrasio company of Amarillo, terrazp work; Forrest R. Barnes, Amarillo, brick; Jim Williams Brick company, Amarillo, brick; Lydick Roofing company, Amarillo; Panhandle Insurance company, Pampa, insurance. Such well-constructed school buildings have made Pampa widely known for its excellently housed system. Recently delegates to the Panhandle district of the Texas Congress of Parents and Teachers were taken on a tour which includ- ' ed the four ward schools and the high school. Those who had imagined that Pampa was "just another oil town" were astonished to see the fine brick schools—as good as any on the plains and more numerous than most cities of this size can boast. ; Mr. Boyington and others concerned In building the school structures take pride in .building not only for the present, tout for the future—substantially, conveniently, without sacrificing a pleasing appearance. East Ward School Is Enlarged by 4 Rooms Growing enrolment at the Woodrow Wilson school, pictured above, has made necessary a 4-room addition. This addition has just been completed by O. L. Boyington, prominent Pampa contractor. Both wings of the building were lengthened to provide new rooms, the architecture of which matches the original structure. Four-Room Addition Built at North Ward Attractive in architecture and convenient in arrangement is the Sam Houston ward school here, pictured above. To this structure has been built by O. L. Boyington, Pampa contractor, a well-appointed 4-room addition to handle the 'growing enrolment of the school. Mr. Boyington also was associated In constructing the original building. \ I'm a Booster for Pampa, Gray County and The Panhandle of Texas ; t.
