FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 1950 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE FIFTEEN Wood River School Board To Seek Con struct ion Bid* WOOD RIVER, Jan. 13-Btds will b« Advertised Feb. 8 by the board of education of School District 104 relative to construction of additions to Lewis-Clark Junior High School and Woodrow Wilson * School. This will be the second effort made by the board to secure bids within the limits of the $510,000 bond Issue which was passed two years ago for the additions. When first bids were collected, Aug. 31, 1948, they were almost $200,000 more than the amount of the bond Issue. The declilon to act. again on the calling of bids was reached by board members at the regular monthly meeting Wednesday night. At the December board meeting, the group consulted with architects. According to Glenn O. De Alley superintendent of the district, the policy of the board has been one of waiting for prices to come down rather than asking tax-payers to pay more money in a bigger bond issue. The building plans call for erection of a gymnasium-auditorium and a cafeteria for both schools. The cafeteria will be on the ground floor with the gymnasium-auditorium above It. ^Also^considered by the board was general improvement of school grounds to begin with work on the trees which were left shabby from the tornado. After all the trees are cared for, the Jioard probably will begin a similar type project, for school lawns. Bids on tree trimming will be advertised before the next board meeting. District 104 will participate with other schools in the area in observance of Business-Industry-Ed- ucatlon Day planned for March 24 by the Wood River Township Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Alton Association, of Commerce and the Alton District Manufacturers Association.
