V Buildings Grottilsd
Crowded conditions in all lo
cal school 3 point to the need of
large additions to the present
high BChool and elementary
Krade buildings, according to
lindlngs submitted to the school
board at its regular meeting at
the high school last night.
In a report on local conditions,
VL C.AVinsjow, a. member ot the
board, said that all acboolbuild
ings are more than comfortably
crowded. Despite" the addition
of the formerly unused McKinley
building to the local elementary
units, all of the , lower grade
schools in the city are reported to
be facing the serious problem of
how to accommodate additional
pupils still being enrolled.
In adopting the 1922 expense
budget, last, night, another seri
ous situation was brought to the
board's attention.- Taxpayers who
attended the meeting, were told

necessity of cutting many item in
order to bring- the budget withtn I
the law limiting increases to 6
per cent.
"You should know that the
bctfird- has , been obliged to eut
down many Items la order to pre
tent this budget,". said, Mr. Wins
low. "At that, we are about 115.
000 below the former salary basis
and as a result our teachers are
fcWnp offered better salaries by
otiif-r.. cities.. Many of our best In
structors are remaining onlv
through loyalty to the city as they
could easily obtain handsome in
creases should they acacept offers
from other schools."
Taxpayers who attended the
meeting were S'. P. McCracken,
R. N, Hoover and J. W. Moore.
John T. Ross presided as chair
man at the preliminary session
of the budget committee. -
!The board- authorized the use
of the high school assembly audi
torium by the Whitney Boys
chorus, stipulating tha t extra Janitor-fees
be paid-by tbe musical
organization and that all boys
who train in the chorus be sett
to their homes by 6 o'clock each
"I am decidedly opposed to the
encouragement of any organiza
tion which proposes to bring the
hoys from their homes at frequent
Intervals," said Superintendent
George Hug. "The Y. M. C. A.
has taken the stand that the young
boys attending that organization
be sent to their homes before 7
o'clock and it. is a good plan to
encourage the boys to spend more
time at home."
Superintendent Hug's sugiges
tloa met with, the approval of. all
members of the board..

committee's report.

Corn and Poultry Shows
Arfc Abandoned for Year
There will be no corn show or
poultry ishow this year, according
to L.. J. IChapin. This is due to the
fact that frost of September 10
did much damage to much of the
best corn and especially that in
th ebottoms. so the exhibit this
year wpuld not be up to the stan
dard of; other years. ,
As there will be no corn show,
it was thought best not to hold ft
separate poultry show, Mr. ChapVn
eaid. Hence both will be post
poned this year. !-

At the luncheon yesterday ot
the Kiwanis club at the Marion,
hotel, the question Wa brought
up of lighting all fouf $."f?s of the
court house coek.
The committee fu charge re
ported that Judge Bushey is will
ing to cooperate with the Kiwan
is club. He referred to an en
deavor made about 10 years ago
to light the clock on all sides
tut the matter was turned down
as the best offer was $10i0.
Judge Bushey said; he favored
and plan that would not be too
expensive. The committee frbni
the Kiwanis club will take up tr.e
matter with local electricians and
report to the county' court.
A centralized charity for Sa
lem was also discussed at the Ki
wanis meetiner. The committee in
charge reported that notices had
been sent to all fraternal and be
nevolent associations in the city
to send representatives, to a meet
ing to be held on the .evening of
Monday. Nov. 28, at the Commer
cial club, for a g-eneral discussion.
It is the opinUa of the Kiwanis
committee that a centralized
charitable organization is much
to be preferred to' the present
jplan, whereby it is known that
iseveral families have been receiv
ing help from several organiza
tions, while at the same time fam
ilies thnt are ileservinc. have re
ceived nothing. ,

flood since 1891, the Spaulding
fogging company management la
congratulating itself on sustain
ing but slight loss, amounting to
scarcely more than 100,000 feet

with the steamer Grey Eagle and
several launches of the company.
The Spaulding Logging com
pany may resume operations this
afternoon but if conditions do not
permit, it will be ready to work
as usual next Friday morning.
