Edwardsville District 7 Agrees on Panel Building EDWARDSVILLE - School District 7 board president Roy mil and another board mem* er cast dissenting votes Thursay on a motion to call for bids n a $1,216,000 addition to the enior high school building. Fruit and a new board mem- er, Jack Enloc, voiced opposi- lon to aluminum-paneling and ;lass construction on the south ide of (lie proposed addition esigned by Edwardsville Archi- est Edward Kane. The board of education, meet- ng In a special session, voted ivc to two to advertise for bids Tuesday for construction of a iceded 87,000 square-foot three- lory wing to the senior high lUllding to relieve overcrowded ilassroom conditions. "From all information 1 have gathered 1 think that brick vould be cheaper than metal janeling with a lot of glass win- lows covering the side of the new addition." Fruit told the members at the special meeting at the Junior High School building. SayH It's Cheaper The board president referred o a communication from an irchiteclural firm which staled hat brick material was cheaper per square foot than installa- .ion of aluminum panel in build- ng construction. In his explanation to the ward, Fruit said that a majority of glass on the south side of he new addition to the; high school would permit excessive exposure of classroom facilities to the sun. Fruit cited the new junior high school building which contains a majority of glass and panel on the south side of the structure. "We have complaints of too much exposure to the ;un at the junior high school," he said. Large drapes were installed at the junior high building to cover the glass front on the side of the building. "Why permit so much glass to be used and then cover it up?" he asked. Construction of the high schoo addition with brick material on the south sort ion would be cheaper and provide sufficient insulation for rlassrooms in the building, Fruit suggested. l.toiid tssm; Approved A $1,216,000 bond issue was| approved by voters of the school district last November in a special election to ronsrtuct a Ihrcp-slnry wing on the school to relieve n shortage of classroom space and for physical education facilities.

Architect Edward Kane displayed to board members and reporters about 50 pages of final technical drawings prepared by his architectural firm after voters approved the bond Issue, Work on the preliminary plans of the proposed addition began long before tho proposition was submitted in thr special election last November. "Could we hrive an alternate set of plans for brick material," 5nloe asked. Enloc. a new mem- jer, was appointed recently to fill out the term of Robert Schaeffer who resigned. "Not without changing the plans — and that would be a job," Kane replied. "I followed what I thought were instructions of the board of education when we prepared these drawings. It would hold up work on the job to change the plans now," he answered. The Time Factor Another board member, A:'.her Logan, inquired: "If we started this job, how long would it take to complete it." "If we started soon and were not hampered substantially by weather conditions or other in- tereferenccs, I would say about two years," Kane told Logan. Senior high school principal, Thomas Butler, interrupted: "I figured I could get by another year with our present facilities," he said. "But by September, 1965, it going to be rough." physical education facilities in the existing gymnasium are crowded. I.'IO More Students Approximately 130 more students than last year are anticipated it Mir- high school when classes begin Tuesday, Butler said. "F think this conflict about brick md panel should have benn aired strongly six months ago," Logan said to the architect. " But with .he time element involved and he need, we should go ahead now. We are going to need this add! Ion very badly," he said. Tuesday and opened Oct. 17 at 8 j.m. His motion was seconded Board member, noved that bids Paul Heepke, be advertised by Richard Kayser.
