OLD BUILDING IS
CONDEMNED BY
5TATE INSPECTOR
Official notification that tho
High school building is unsafe
was received by Thomas Sik'es,
chairman of the school board,
last week. The notice comes
from the office of Labor Com
missioner O. P. Hoff, upon the
report of Inspector W. B.
Chance, who inspected the
building nearly ten days ago.
In his communication, Mr.
Hoff cites the lieeping of oils
under a stairway as a danger
ous practice, and he demands
that timber braces be placed
to support the second floor over
the assembly room.
The inspection was made at
the request of State Sphool Su
perintendent J. A. Churchill,
who was here two or three
weeks ago.
