NC MKjj—M— MELT MONDAY TO PLAN BEGINNING SCHOOL BUILDING Beard Will Coaler With Arch itect And Contractor On Change* HOPE TO BRING COST WITHIN DESIRED LIMIT Member* Feel That $00,000 la a* Much Money A* They Should Put Into One Struc ture—Moat Repair The Otld Building And Aid Negro Project From $100,000 Bond Sale. In a final effort to Induce a con tractor to undertake the construction of tee proposed grammar school W Y.g for a sum within <60,000, the school boaro, Architeet Wilaon anti Contractor L. Gentry, will meet in the office, of Clifford A Tournaend Monday afternoon It if probable that •omo flight change* will be made in the plana, but theae chengee will not effect the material ralue of the build I Jig. Decision to coll this meeting was touched In a special meeting of the Hoard yesterday when the building committee reported its inability to And a contractor who would under take the project as it now stands for the sum offered. The board feels that it will not bo justified in spending more than *60,000 for th# building's con struction, since it inlands to spend only *160,000 of the *200,000 of bonds authorised in election list year for this building, repair* to th* old and aid for the new negro school ■ building. Mr. Gentry, whose oflees are in Fayetteville, was the lowest bid der Ja th* recent contest among the more than a soers of contractors. Hia bid then was slightly over (66,000. It D felt that with slight changes in some phases of the aichiteel's plans he can undertake the building fur *60,000 or lass. This building is to ha erected at the southern rad af Magnolia avenue upon property purchased last year fra** p. t. «— 1m.-« mn ii <fnt of the boat and molt modsmly equip ped public school buildings in North Carolina. When bonde were issued for the construction of the bailding it was hoped that it could he completed la t me for the last half of this term of school. Low bond values and high building eoets. however, interferred. The school board did not feel justi fied in letting the bonds go for lees than par. Caution in this matter while delaying the building program, sav ed the community more than (10,000 in the sale of the honds and much more money in the value of building materials. It ia now hoped that tha building can be completed by the time the nest rehool term opens. Unless it Is, there will be no room for hundreds of children who should be enrolled in Dunn schools next fell. Even now some of the classes are working on hal ftlme to permit all of the chil dren to be accommodated and all of the class rooms ere badly crowded.
