Supt. George H.

' There have been, many, additions since that time, but not in auditorium facilities nor in restroom ;ij| facilities in the main building. *?| There are now 1800 students there. $ Gentry estimates that added ;%! classrooms at Harlem would cost Vj 350.000. He has set up a tentative £ estimate of S100.000 to be'spent at £} Carver for more classrooms and restroom facilities. In the bond issue would be $40,000 for furniture and equipment and $60,000 for possible additional sites.
