Gymnasium
Progress Ahead
Of Schedule
Prepress on our new physical
educational building is ahead of
schedule, and Mr. Pat Gamble,
foreman of the construction crew,
does not anticipate any difficulties.
In fact, work on the outside should
be completed within the next ten
d^ys.
In addition to the basketball court
and the locker and shower rooms
found in any gymnasium, there will
be three handball courts, a girl’s
basketball court, a six lane bowl
ing alley, and an olympic-slze pool.
There will be underwater viev/ing
ports from which to observe dives
from the three boards, one of
which is a three meter board. An
observation platform will overlook
the handball courts and the pool.
Also included in the plans are three
classrooms, staffrooms for both
men and women, and storage
rooms. There will be a wrest
ling room, a weighing room, and for
blllard buffs, a game room with
a stepped ceiling.
Both construction and landscap
ing should be completed in Au
gust. Although Mr. Gamble is
primarily concerned with beams
and bolts, this building means
something more to him. In his
words, “This is not just another
building. It is a tool that young
people use to better themselves.”
