Hire Chief Grady King said he be
believed the Jamagrs will not exceed

to extinguish the blaze and the
heavy rains did extensive damage to
the entire ceiling, the new draperies
and curtains which were gifts of the

'Superintendent B. N. Barnes said
many of the veneered seats in the
auditorium will have to be replaced
and all of the Interior will have to
be done over.

Supt. B. N. Barnes were busy Tuesday
and Wednesday with the tnsuran

settlement was reached!.
No one was la the building at the
time of -the fire as the term ended

Is to quietly circumvent public opposition
