Little Rock fire inspector juid > today he had advised city officials that a public elementary school hcv'n-whs extremely dangerous from the standpoint of a fire himml. Inspector V. C. Throckmorto'i said pupils should be moved, to other qualifiers at onco. He would not identify die school. Throckmort.on added that on the whole, conditions at Little 'Rock wore none too good. Only three of 40 school builrlines in the city hove proper safeguards, he said. Meanwhile the state fire marshal said that on a statewide basis, Arkansas schools were "in pretty good shape." ~" State Police Set. Bill Strubbing, the marshal, said only two schools •had been condemned as fire hazards in the past three years. One of these was a RradD school at Newark which later was replaced by n modern structure, he said. Details on- the other schools were not nv-ulablc immediately but SUmbbins said corrective ac- tion was taken. Throckmorlon said he also had warned a p r : v a I c olel'iiehlat'y school here that a fire hiiMl'd eS* isled. Me \vouid not identify this school, either. The Inspector said the three Little Rock schools which had proper safeguards were G-ibbs, Cehtetifttal and C a p i f o 1 Mill Elementary Schools, He said Oibbs has a sprinkler system, which he believes to be the only one In an Arkansas school. Centennial and Caplto) Milt have fire detection alarm systems, No such devices exist lit other city schools, the inspector said, Throckfnorto'.i said he did not blame school officials for the situ» ation, but added that steips should be taken at once to correct it, Presumably any action on public schools would hnve to await elec« tion of s new school hoard Satltr* day.
